A very simple recipe, these croutons are good for a Caesar's Salad or any tossed green salad.
Hot Baked Reuben Dip
The classic sandwich is converted to dip form, but I used pastrami instead of corned beef which is a little spicier. No matter which you use, you're going to enjoy this truly delicious hot dip, which is also great warm. Or room temperature.
Baked Pepperoni Dip
This is a great dip for a football party. If you don't like the spicy stuff, omit them. I have also used just red pepper flakes and added more pepperoni. Serve with baguettes or crackers
Baked Goat Cheese Caprese Salad
This is one of the most amazing and easy cheese appetizers ever. It's got that texture that people love about goat cheese. Basil and tomato have a proven track record of being incredibly delicious with creamy cheeses, and this is no exception.
Scacce Ragusane (Sicilian Stuffed Flatbread)
This is my first attempt ever at this incredibly unique and delicious Sicilian stuffed flatbread. What we have here is a very familiar pizza-like flavor profile, but the delivery system is unlike anything you've ever experienced. The outside edges are crispy and crunchy while that saucy and cheesy center is much like a pasta in texture. So, while this is vaguely similar to a lot of things, it's really unlike anything else.
Great garlic-smashed potatoes for a party. The potatoes can be boiled and smashed ahead of time, leaving only the baking to do once guests arrive.
Roasted Smashed Potatoes
The key to perfect smashed potatoes is completely chilling the parboiled potatoes before smashing, which gives you plenty of time to infuse some butter with garlic and herbs for drizzling over top. Roasted, the potatoes will end up crispy, buttery, and crusty on the outside, with a light, fluffy interior. It's like taking the best parts of home fries, mashed potatoes, French fries, and potato pancakes, and smashing them all together.
These are little potato morsels, twice-cooked and infused with flavor. My family asks for them often!
