Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled Pork Tacos

You're having soft tacos later

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pulled Pork Tacos happened when I realized that we didn't have any beef for Taco Tuesday. OH the humanity! Whatever shall we do?! Yep! That's right! Pull that pulled pork out of the freezer and load it up with taco seasoning, fried peppers and onions. Then toss that into soft taco shells and load them with all of the fixin's for a fast weeknight dinner that will have them asking for Taco Tuesday on Wednesday and Thursday too!

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

A strange twist on a home-style classic

Posted on December 15, 2015
Pork And Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie is an "I have some pork and some sweet potatoes, now what?" sort of recipe. It was chilly that day, so I wanted something cozy to eat, and easy to make. That's when I thought, why not make a shepherd's pie! This recipe is overflowing with savory gravy. Instead of the typical peas and corn, I went with sweet green pepper. Then I added LOADS of pork topped it with a creamy and crispy sweet potato crust. What's not to love about this recipe?

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Sourdough Bacon Stuffing

Perfect for turkey dinners

Posted on November 20, 2015
Sourdough Bacon Stuffing is the only thing in this year's Thanksgiving dinner that contained gluten. I made it with fresh sourdough bread, and I had bacon out to make the Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes, so I used the leftovers in this recipe. 

 

I never stuff the bird when I use stuffing. There are a lot of factors that lead to that decision. Mostly I don't feel that I get a proper cook out of a roasted bird. There is risk of contamination of the stuffing from uncooked drippings, and most importantly, you don't get loads of crunchy bits, leading to fights among guests and family over the coveted crispy stuffing. Feel free to stuff your turkey, or chicken, or not. But whatever you do, enjoy the stuffing.

Smoky Ribs

Smoky Ribs

With Dr. Pepper & Chilli Sauce

Posted on November 18, 2015
I have had a heck of a time finding ribs this summer season, but fall came knocking and suddenly there are ribs on sale almost every week! Finally ribs! Immediately I bought a few. I did the rub thing, but wanted a little something different this time around. Although to be honest the Maple Bacon Ribs are still my biggest request and absolute favorite. So I soaked some apple wood chips in Angry Orchard Cider, then smoked the ribs until tender. Then I made a spicy sweet sauce from Cattle BoyZ Sweet Chilli Sauce and oddly enough, Dr. Pepper. What I ended up with was Smoky Ribs With Dr. Pepper & Chilli Sauce, and they were awesome.

Cider Brined Pork

Cider Brined Pork

With Cider Sauce

Posted on November 04, 2015
I was going to throw my pork tenderloin into the crock pot and have some Slow Cooked Sake Pork. However my loving husband wrapped the loin straight instead of curled around itself and it wouldn't fit into the crock pot! Needless to say we had something else for dinner that night, but I did come up with a nifty recipe to have the next night! 

Like I mentioned in my Cider Donut recipe, we're obsessed with Angry Orchard Cider right now. So while rifling about in the fridge for something I could do to my tenderloin to make it tastier, my eyes alighted on the Angry Orchard Cider I had. Thus Cider Brined Pork was devised.

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

With Maple Syrup & Cider

Posted on November 03, 2015
I made these Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples after seeing a photo online. That's how it happens sometimes. I just had this image in my head and was all about making these! I started with the most gigantic apples I have ever seen. These Honey Crisp Apples - yes the ones from the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp recipe - were perfect for this. They were ginormous! Massive. Did I mention they were big?  Then I grabbed some sausage. It couldn't be just any sausage though, it had to be the right amounts of sweet and savory, something that would pair prettily with the apple and other sweet flavors. In the end I had these gigantic apple bombs that were aromatic and delectable. A perfect balance. Oh and they're gluten free too.

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

The cure for the common bacon

Posted on October 01, 2015
Maple Peppercorn Bacon is spicy, peppery, sweet and bacon. It's the bacon-est bacon that ever baconed and you will love it. Not only because you put so much love and effort into it. (Flipping that bag filled with meat once per day is really difficult you guys!) Okay really the hardest parts were the waiting and then not eating it all as soon as it was off the smoker. The smell is just beyond amazing.

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

Tahini Marinated Pork Chops

On a bed of rice

Posted on October 01, 2015
I had these amazing thick pork chops and didn't know what to do with them. Apparently we get bored easily in the Sizzle household, because my husband was pretty "meh" about these too. But suddenly, our stomachs growled and said - Tahini Marinated Pork Chops! Okay, that didn't really happen exactly like that, but you get the idea. We suddenly had a craving for something a little bit international.

Grilled Chicken Carbonara

With Homemade Bacon

Posted on September 22, 2015
Do you still have bacon ends after making homemade bacon? OR do you have a craving for bacon and don't want to make pancakes or something? Well this classy meal is just for you. Grilled Chicken Carbonara With Homemade Bacon is the perfect way to use up leftover bacon, impress someone, and have a great pasta meal in less than an hour. Grilled Chicken Carbonara was one of those recipes that I hadn't tackled before because I thought it was too easy to screw up, so I was scared. It IS easy to mess this recipe up, but if you do it right, you are rewarded. Also. Bacon.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

On The Grill

Posted on September 22, 2015
When you slice your newly homemade bacon, you invariably get bits, chunks, slices that aren't pretty, and leavings. You can't just toss these little scraps. That would be offensive. You would be arrested by the Bacon Police for crimes against the bacon! That's where these Bacon Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins come in. I used some of the bacon ends in these delicious breakfast muffins that do more than smell delicious. They're fairly healthy, you can make them gluten free and egg free easily. There is little sugar in these too. Until you add the chocolate chips. But if you're REALLY being health conscious with these bacon-full muffins, craisins are a great addition instead.
