We have been looking for a quick and simple party appetizer. So Dana and I, immediately thought of bruschetta and/or crostini. What is the difference? Well it all has to do with the bread. Bruschetta comes from the Italian word Bruscare which means to “roast over coals”. Basically it is toasted slices of wide Italian bread. Not what we think of in America, but lets go with it. Crostini is the toasting of smaller bread slices, typically a baguette. This is what we think of as Bruschetta in America. Oops, I have been wrong all of my life. Well that stops here. Check out this Mushroom Crostini.
Dana is always looking out for great recipes to try. She spotted a chicken recipe on facebook that looked delicious. Upon further consideration we noticed that it utilized a prepackaged soup mix. We decided to break it down and come with our own take on this dish. We started with fresh herbs and went from there. I must say that this dish was freaking delicious!
Dana and I went to Hash House A Go Go a last year when we went to Mohegan Sun Casino. It was an amazing breakfast. We both had a farm house scramble. Basically it is a biscuit topped with griddled potatoes, veggies, meat, eggs and cheese. Basically the best combination possible. We have been talking about it for a while now. After making homemade biscuits the other day, we thought it would be a great idea to make our own farmhouse scrambles at home. My take uses sausage and a pepper medley. Totally Awesome!
Living in the South, I have come to love a good biscuit. A nice flaky biscuit that is on the verge of being too salty, but is just right. Mmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My son Liam asked me to make biscuits, so I decided to have a go at it. The results were awesome! These were some of the best biscuits I have had. Definitely the best biscuit I have ever made.
