Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup. I like eggs over easy, and fluffy scrambled eggs. I pretty much like everything there is to like about breakfast. Baked Egg BoatsMakes 4 Ingredients: 4 demi sourdough baguettes 5 eggs 1/3 cup heavy cream 4 ounces pancetta, finely chopped and fried until crisp 3 ounces gruyere cheese, grated 2 green onions, thinly slicedsalt and pepper to tasteDirections: 1. san francisco garlic fries | The Red Spoon Well folks, not much going on this week. I’m still 800 million degrees, which I guess is normal if you’re a human incubator. I’ve become a stretchy, elastic waisted pants spokesperson, because ohmygah maternity jeans are the most incredible thing I have ever worn, excepting for the sweat pants I model almost daily. (Seriously, they need to make jeans this comfortable for non-knocked up folks.) Ummm, uhhhhh. Thankfully the flour explosion that played out in my mind was not needed as a few huffs and puffs calmed the fire and eventually put it out. The bad: I am now squeamish around my oven. Glad that is over. One Year Ago: Thyme and Gruyere Crackers San Francisco Garlic Fries Adapted from Bon Appetit, August 2011 Serves 4 So, I really like this version more than the previous baked fry I auditioned. Preheat oven to 450-degrees. Roast the potatoes, turning ever 10 minutes, until browned and tender, about 30 – 40 minutes. Whisk reaming 1/2 tablespoon oil, garlic and parsley in a large bowl.

Buffalo Chicken Bites One of my favorite guilty pleasures is buffalo wings, especially dipped in blue cheese dressing. There's something about the buffalo chicken and blue cheese combo that really appeals to me and I had a craving for it lately. When I came across a recipe for ham and cheese stuffed pretzel bites, I figured I could substitute it with chicken and blue cheese. That's when I decided to make these Buffalo Chicken Bites... yum! These are such an awesome snack, which could be a meal in itself if you have enough of them. It's not hard since they are addictively delicious! I plan on making these again and experimenting with other fillings such a steak, provolone, sauteed peppers and onions for Philly Cheesesteak Bites... or even pepperoni, italian sausage, mozzarella and mushrooms for Pizza Bites. Buffalo Chicken Bites 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise dry yeast 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 cup warm milk ( I used 2%) 2 1/2 cups of flour Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in the middle of the oven.

Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe If you can find it, use fine white cornmeal, which is the primary cornmeal used in the South. Buttermilk adds flavor and tang, but is not strictly necessary. Method 1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. 2 Heat the peanut oil in a skillet on medium heat. LaSaGnA TiMpAnO I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. Start by making a lasagna crust. Finally got it together. Now it's easy, just start building the layers! Alfredo sauce with some salami goes first. After 3 alfredo layers, I switched to pesto. A cheese only layer, just for fun. Tomato sauce is last. It's important to press things down as you go. In my opinion, it can't be lasagna without at least a little ricotta! I painted on some alfredo at the end as a glue. All sealed up. After baking. The flip is always a scary moment. Unveiling. A thing of beauty. Cutting is another tense event. Glorious! I still can't believe how great this came out and how awesome it actually tasted!

Hash Brown Wrapped Eggs It's been hard for me to switch gears from the whole "Stuffed" concept. It's too late to get this guy into the book, so here it is, Stuffed DVD special features! This is a play on a scotch egg, but also a Peruvian dish called papas rellenas. The key is perfectly soft boiling the eggs so that the yolk stays soft and comes running out when you cut into it. Roast the potatoes until tender. Mix with some flour, salt, herbs, and spices. Soft boil some eggs using this method. The potato mixture is mashed and ready. With well floured hands and surface, spread out some potato and roll it around your egg. Perfect. Fry em up until browned all around. Just another potato... With a suprise inside! Wait for it... Pop a little sriracha on this thing and it will be the best breakfast you have had in months!

Cajun Chicken Pasta Note: Since this recipe is featured on the Food Network episode this morning, I’m bringing it to the front for easy reference. This really is one of my favorite recipes here on The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and I regularly hear from people who’ve made it with great success. Crowd-pleaser! This is an exceedingly yummy, decadent pasta dish with chicken, vegetables, and lots and lots of scrumptious carbs. Just remember: part of the deliciousness of this pasta dish is the spicy kick. Here’s how you make it. The Cast of Characters: boneless, skinless chicken breast, olive oil, butter, Cajun spice (make your own or buy the prepared stuff; whichever you prefer), salt, pepper, red onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, fresh parsley, low sodium chicken broth, white wine, and heavy cream. Oh. Start by slicing the veggies: Lop the top and bottom off of the red pepper… Then slice the pepper down the middle. Rip out the innards… Then make slices—not too thick, not too thin. Be generous! Yum. Enjoy!

Garlic Parmesan Fries Amazingly crisp, oven-baked fries coated with freshly grated Parmesan and a generous dose of garlic goodness! I first want to start off by thanking you all for the get well wishes for Butters. His fever has gone down completely and his temperature has normalized. The doc still couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him but we’re all so relieved that he’s fully recuperated and that he’s back to being the adorable pup that chews, bites, and nips everything in sight. Now I actually made these while Butters was in the hospital. I found myself with a bag of russet potatoes in my pantry, just waiting to be used up. I was also in no mood for any kind of deep-frying to take place so I tossed these babies in olive oil before popping them into the oven to get them nice and crisp. Amazingly crisp, oven-baked fries coated with freshly grated Parmesan and a generous dose of garlic goodness! Ingredients Instructions Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
