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.

Turnips are a staple on most holiday tables, be it Thanksgiving or Christmas. These Garlic Mashed Turnips go a long way and are the perfect vehicle for getting picky eaters to like vegetables. As an added bonus, they have all these little nooks and crannies that are perfect for holding extra gravy.

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

With Sugar Cookie Crust

Posted on November 19, 2015
**This recipe makes 2 pies!**

Thanksgiving and autumn are a time for cozy foods and pumpkin flavored everything. I will admit that I have never liked even the thought of something pumpkin flavored, however I thought that it was about time that I finally acquiesced and made something pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake With Sugar Cookie Crust was actually very good. I will admit to being skeptical, but it turned out that the taste reminded me of gingerbread for some reason. Anyway. Thanksgiving needs Pumpkin Pie, so here you go. Sort of.

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.

 Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes

Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes

You don't need money to be this loaded

Posted on November 17, 2015
Imagine having the most delicious baked potato, but instead of in the skin, it's in a dish, just mashed potatoes. I don't think I am describing this well. These Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes are amazing. Loaded with all of the flavor of a baked potato, but in a gravy holding, mouth watering, soft and delicious package. I baked these potatoes with the turkey over charcoal, then mashed them with all of the delightful fillings you would put on a baked potato.

Sweet Potato Flower

Sweet Potato Flower

Quite the tasty looking dish

Posted on November 17, 2015
This Sweet Potato Flower is as pretty to look at as it is tasty. A little fiddly to make, but well worth it when people are in awe of your grilling prowess. I thought of this recipe because I already had mashed potatoes and mashed turnip on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner. I just couldn't do another mashed dish. Instead I created something that was both visually stunning and pretty dang tasty if you happen to enjoy sweet potato.

Green Beans

Green Beans

With Bacon, Butter & Maple

Posted on November 17, 2015
I really enjoyed the way the green beans turned out in my recipe for Maple Glazed Duck Breasts. Adding bacon seemed like a logical next step. And even better, I had the Peppercorn and Maple Bacon that I recently made. Green Beans With Bacon, Butter & Maple turned out to be a fantastic side to go with Thanksgiving Dinner. Even better, this recipe is also gluten free, making it a great side dish if you have guests with dietary needs.

Bruschetta Pizza

Bruschetta Pizza

Two of the best foods become one

Posted on November 10, 2015
Bruschetta Pizza is a marriage of two supremely delicious foods. Bruschetta topped with roasted tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil, paired with the portable, gooey, melty heaven that is pizza; forming what was probably the best thing we’ve eaten in a week!I say this because we eat some pretty awesome stuff as Chez Sizzle. I mean, have you READ this blog?


Now this recipe wasn't all sunshine and roses. I am sure that you noticed that the pizza went from round and lovely in the first couple of photos,  to a squared-off-ish shape, in the other photos. Well, I kind of, maybe, accidentally, dumped the first pizza in the sink. I would love to tell you it was some incredible story involving ninja pirates, but no. It was my own klutziness that lead to that poor pizza's downfall. Our back up was very tasty indeed, though. The moral here is make this pizza, but don't accidentally toss it in the sink.

Spaghetti À La Vodka

Spaghetti À La Vodka

A delicious vodka cream sauce

Posted on November 10, 2015
Many years ago, I went on a girl's weekend and had the pleasure of trying some pasta in a vodka cream sauce. I haven't seen it on a menu in years, until recently I spotted an article about it somewhere. I suddenly had a craving. Conveniently, we had just gotten back from our trip to Prince Edward County, and had procured a bottle of 66 Distillery Rye Vodka, which went perfectly into my Spaghetti À La Vodka. This pasta dish is filling, rich, creamy, and a little tomato-y too. The chicken adds a smoky flavor to the whole dish, and when you taste it, you will fall in love.

Tomato Risotto

Tomato Risotto

With Feta And Grilled Chicken

Posted on November 10, 2015
Tomato Risotto With Feta And Grilled Chicken was a bit of an accident. Well, not accident but more of an "oh no, we're out of ___ what do we cook?" kind of thing. So there I was - having pulled out chicken for dinner without thinking about it. When I went to cook that evening I realized that I didn't have the ingredients to make any Sesame Chicken, and really wasn't feeling like slapping some BBQ sauce on the chicken and calling it a day. But I had some leftover rice, and a basket of cherry tomatoes...where did those come from? Anywho, after a little digging, I found a few more random things that would go well together, and suddenly dinner happened. It was delightful!
