Brussels Sprouts Goat Cheese Bacon Pizza

Brussels sprouts are a love – hate vegetable. Most either love them or hate them. Tim and I happen to be of the love’m group.

I’ve roasted them with grapes, topped a brat with them, made a salad, and now have made two pizza’s with them. Our first brussels sprouts pizza  was Scallop Bacon Brussels Sprout Pizza and it was delicious….brussels sprouts and scallops with bacon……yum!

Sometimes, you just know flavors that pair well together. Bacon and brussels sprouts, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and parmesan. Is it a traditional pizza…..oh heavens no, but the flavors are so perfect together, they deserve a turn on a pizza crust.

Marinara was the odd duck out for this recipe, but I needed a sauce and I had a jar of it in the pantry, so I took a chance. When making a recipe, I will get so excited over it, I neglect to write things down….such was the case of the marinara, so I don’t remember the brand. It had a touch of heat too it that was right up TIm’s alley. For all my misgivings about the tomato part… it was perfect.

Precooking the brussels sprouts until they are tender crisp gives them a light caramelization and enhances the flavor. Bacon fat doesn’t hurt either.

If you are looking for a different and unique pizza Brussels Sprouts Goat Cheese Bacon Pizza is that pizza.

Spicy Sweet Corn Chowder

Sometimes the best laid plans don’t come to be. My nephew and his girlfriend were going to come for dinner Friday night. Steaks, potatoes, and sweet corn. Well it didn’t work out as we planned 🙁

Tim and I still had the steaks, but we added a salad and called it dinner. I had sweet corn and no plans for it……or did I????

Using up sweet corn for four, Tim and I would be eating sweet corn all next week. Last year I made a Corn Chowder and posted it here at What the Forks for Dinner?  Spicy Sweet Corn Chowder is a ramped up version of my original recipe.
