Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Potato salad with crunch

Posted on August 05, 2016

You know, some of my best recipes come from somehow messing up. Getting the wrong ingredient, not having all of the ingredients, or some other such mishap. That’s how Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad came about. I realized that I only had baking potatoes when my husband had a hankering for potato salad one evening. I figured everything would be alright, so I proceeded as normal. I peeled, sliced, and boiled, but I wound up overcooking the potatoes. To save things, I decided to make them crispy potatoes. After that decision, I wound up undercooking the eggs too! This was fine with me, but definitely not in accordance with the way you make potato salad. As I see these ingredients coming together I decided to roll with it. What’s better with eggs than bacon? I was also using baking potatoes, so under all that crunchy outside was a light and fluffy inside, another perfect place to put bacon. When all was said and done, it was like eating forkfuls of baked potato and breakfast wrapped into one, delicious, summery, side dish. It was amazing.

Smoked Sloppy Joes

After making Grilled Chili Cheese Dogs, I was to making other messy foods on the grill, like Sloppy Joes. Of course, I needed to put a proper barbecue spin on this recipe and decided that they needed to be more than sloppy; they needed to be Smokey Joes – Smoked Sloppy Joes. I smoked a big chuck roast until a fork could shred the meat, then added a homemade sauce and served it all on a big bun with a spicy Kale and Horseradish Slaw to top it all off. …So messy and delicious…

Open Faced Steak Sandwich

Open Faced Steak Sandwich

on Pane Di Casa

Posted on June 29, 2016
I had leftover steak from the Gourmet Steak Pizza recipe and wanted something a little heartier for lunch one day. I made this Open Faced Steak Sandwich on Pane Di Casa, initially intending it to be a full on sandwich, but as I dressed it up and was getting ready to put the top on, I just couldn’t. This sandwich was so beautiful as it was. Instead I made a couple more and served them to my husband, who proceeded to rave about them. Now the whole family is requesting them for our Fancy Family Canada Day Picnic Lunch Celebration. Okay so the event title is a bit of a work in progress, but the Open Faced Steak Sandwiches aren’t!

Introducing the GLT

Posted on August 18, 2015
Bacon is a treat for some. For others, myself and the husband included, it's weekend required eating. When asked what she would like to eat after a successfull Girl's Night In, my firend really wasn't up for eggs. What can I say, it was a big Bison Steak dinner! But, the thought of bacon was too much to turn down so instead I decided on BLT's for breakfast. So here I am prepping the ingredients, mulling over the acronym "BLT", I suddenly thought G.L.T!! Lightbulb! Grilled Bacon Lettuce And Tomato Sandwiches! YES! They were exquisite, by the way.
