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.

WE LOVE POTATO CHIPS!!! Yes I am screaming this from the hill tops! Crunchy Double Cheese Chips are the best chips ever!!

Tim and I are huge potato chip fans. A sandwich isn’t a sandwich without chips, and they are our go to snack. Crunchy Double Cheese Chips take chips to the next level.

Crunchy Double Cheese Chips

Whoever invented the kettle cooked chip should be given a medal. The crunchier the chips the better for my money. These chips amp the crunch up with an added bonus of cheese.

I adapted a recipe I found on Bon Appetit to make these chips. We had friends coming over to play cards, and of course we needed snacks. Finger food is best for card playing and I was making sliders (watch for that recipe soon) and sliders=sandwich=you need chips.

Tim’s favorite cheese is Asiago and I love parmesan, so I combined them. Now here is the beauty of this recipe, all you need are a bag of chips, and grated cheese….that’s it.

I do recommend the drier cheeses…like parmesan or asiago. I also recommend that you grate them yourself. Rumors of the pre-grated cheeses having cellulose ( made from wood pulp) or other anti clumping agents have made me a “grate my own gal!”

Quick, easy, and you probably have the item in your pantry. Preheat your oven, place the chips on a baking sheet, sprinkle with cheese, bake for 4 minutes……that’s right 4 minutes. Out of the oven, another sprinkle of cheese, top with black pepper and you have the best Crunchy Double Cheese Chips.

Perfect for football games, with a sandwich, or just to snack on….try them today…you won’t be disappointed!

Roasted Cauliflower Croquettes

There is a Japanese dish, called okonomiyaki that has shown up quite a bit lately on my Pinterest feed……..I was intrigued.
Okonomiyaki, are basically cabbage pancakes. They vary from region to region, but it’s basically  a cabbage, flour, eggs, and green onion pancake.
Translation of the name means “how you like” or “what you like” and did we ever like! Except I liked cauliflower instead of cabbage.
