So I entered a pie contest and wanted to share my entry over here.
Here are most of the ingredients.
Made up some graham cracker crust. After smearing my CI pie pan with some butter flavored Crisco I press in the crust.
Made up a bacon weave and placed it on the kamado.
Because I couldn’t flip the weave I placed my bacon press on the burner for 10 minutes. After it’s smoking hot I placed it on top of the weave.
While that cooks I prep my jalapeños.
On the grill they go for 15 minutes along with the pie crust for 7 minutes at 350.
After the weave is cooked I place it in the bottom of the pie crust.
Then the smoked jalapeño rings and the cream cheese pie filling.
Now the pie goes into the kamado for 40 minutes at 350.
Here is the result.
After letting it cool to room temp and then in the fridge I spread on the Raspberry Jalapeño topping.
And this was my entry photo.
I am getting my plants ready for spring planting and some going to friends. What you see in the photos is Roma tomato plants in bin and on on shelf, some basil, jalapeño peppers, peppercini peppers, and sweet bell. I have some seeds germinating for spearmint, peppermint, lemon basil, sweet basil, Thai basil, cinnamon basil, marigold regular and jumbo, tarragon, lavender,
my my other seed starter has English daisy, rosemary, sage, summer thyme, Greek oregano, and egg plant that not yet ready for transplanting to small pots yet. The English daisy, sage, summer thyme should be ready for transplanting next weekend.
Well.........Teenage T-Rex cooked grilled cheese sammiches for his girlfriend the other day.
Figured that I'd increase his capabilities by introducing a George Foreman grill.
He was game.
We took it on it's maiden voyage today for lunch.
Figured I'd make a batch of my smash burgers and run it through it's paces.
He was in the midst of each step.
Small countertop...I manned the cutting board......he manned the grill.
Usual suspects gathered....
He devoured the first thing to come off this grill.....to slices of bacon.
Ankle-biters emerged as soon as bacon started being cooked......
The smash burgers were too large for the Foreman.......made a mess of them.
The thing cooks onions and bacon like a champ, though !!!!!!!!
This is a wonderful savory and satisfying soup. This recipe will make 2 meal size servings or 4 side servings.
1 large green bell pepper
1 large red bell pepper
1 small onion
2 medium yellow squash
3/4 cup fresh small broccoli florets
4 oz of cooked breakfast sausage (pre-cooked weight)
1 1/3 cups of milk
1 1/3 cups of water
2 beef bullion cubes
black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
Slice and steam the squash, you want it mushy. Slice the peppers and onions and saute in oil until tender but not over done. Now combine everything in to a medium pan and slowly bring to a slow boil stirring often. Reduce temp and simmer until the broccoli is tender. Serve hot and top with grated hard cheese such as Parmesan. Enjoy!
