Continuing the monthly tradition, The Speckled Palate's The Potluck: February 2017 includes a surprisingly goofy and addictive television show recommendation, a toddler tower for the kitchen, colorful napkins, music and more. Swing by the blog today to get a full list of the things I adored during the month of February.
Let's make Winter Vegetable Hash! This hash features winter veggies like potato, purple turnip and Brussels sprouts and pairs with a tart Granny Smith apple hash to top your favorite protein. Apples cook in olive oil with Dijon mustard, then are kept warm while the potatoes and turnips crisp up and soften. Add Brussels sprouts to the mix and cook until browned. Enjoy the wintertime vegetable harvest by enjoying Winter Vegetable Hash with dinner.
Wow friends and family with this ooey, gooey, cheesy mash-up: French Onion Bruschetta! Onions cook down and caramelize before soaking up beef broth. Season with thyme, then scoop the onions onto sliced bread. Sprinkle with two types of Borden® Cheese and broil until browned and gooey. The creamy caramelized onions and cheese pair beautifully with crusty bread. French Onion Bruschetta is sure to become a new favorite appetizer or entree. #ad #BordenCheeseLove
Cheers to Mardi Gras and this King Cake Martini! The base of this drink is homemade cinnamon-infused vodka, which is made when cinnamon sticks are placed in a jar with vodka for 5-7 days. When the vodka is cinnamon-y, mix with hazelnut liqueur, white crème de cocoa, coffee liqueur and club soda. This Carnival cocktail looks and tastes like a traditional king cake. What better way to celebrate Mardi Gras than by sipping on a King Cake Martini?
Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice makes a delicious dinner... and this recipe is SO simple! This well-loved Louisiana entree, which calls for dried red beans, Andouille sausage, green bell pepper, onion and spices, is the perfect meal year-round. This recipe, which is perfect for Mardi Gras festivities, football tailgates and while hosting a party, because it requires little hands-on time, cooks unassisted in the slow cooker and feeds a crowd.
Celebrate Mardi Gras without spending hours in the kitchen with a Praline Pull-Apart King Cake! This quick king cake substitutes store-bought cinnamon rolls for homemade dough and pulls apart like monkey bread. Halve the cinnamon rolls, then toss in sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Bake in a bundt pan with a gooey praline sauce. Flip onto a platter and serve warm with a homemade cream cheese icing and colored sugar. Laissez les bons temps rouler! #ad
