I noticed as I was thinking about how to describe the deliciousness that is these baked sweet onions with breadcrumbs and Brie that this is the second recipe I’ve posted this week with Brie as a main ingredient. Small wonder, because there is nothing like creamy, dreamy Brie cheese, in this case mixed with savory breadcrumbs and roasted up inside a sweet tender onion. This would make a fabulous side dish with grilled steak or fish, but honestly? I could eat it all by itself and be totally happy. Ready to bake up the best sweet onion ever? Let’s make it!
We all know how I feel about bacon, and my love for bacon of course extends into all kinds of BLT sandwich love, but with this latest recipe for lobster BLT sandwiches with brie cheese, I think I may have found the love of my life, BLT-wise. In this sandwich, B stands for both bacon and Brie, and L stands for both lettuce and lobster. And LOVE, because that is how I felt about every creamy, crunchy bite! Ready for the BLT sandwich of your dreams? Let’s make it!
Oh my friends, I have had a WEEK. A week that absolutely demanded the decadence of a Brie artichoke souffle omelet, and if you have never had a souffle omelet, you are in for a treat – all the puffy delight of a souffle, but cooked on the stovetop omelet-style with none of the souffle fear. Stuffed with artichoke hearts and Brie cheese and oh my my. Jump down to the recipe if you want to just hear about souffle omelets instead of my saga. Or read through my saga. One way or the other – let’s make it!
This is my favorite summer recipe EVER. It is adapted from the Silver Palate Cookbook — that first one that everyone bought back in the 1980’s when this wonderful series of cookbooks first appeared. If yours is like mine, the binding is cracked and the pages are falling out and you can’t get a new one because you have all these notes and memories marked on the pages, and sentimental splotches of meals gone by staining the pages…and I STILL haven’t made everything I want to make out of this classic cookbook.
But I have made this one, probably 50 times over the years, because it is simple and gorgeous and tastes like heaven on a summertime plate. Let’s make it!
I’m back again with the farro, which is my go-to comfort food, this time in the form of a farro bowl with brie and shallots. Warm, chewy farro, creamy brie, sweet shallots – I mean, who would not feel totally comforted with a bowlful of this deliciousness? It’s also the perfect was to use up that last slice or two of cheese, that one lone shallot…whatever excuse you need to whip up a bowl of this, DO IT. Because I’m telling you, once you go farro, you won’t go back…let’s make it!
There are grilled cheese sandwiches, and then there are Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I have always been helplessly enthralled with any menu that has the words Croque Monsieur on it. Because that basically translates to a rocking great grilled cheese sandwich that involves thin-sliced ham, swiss cheese, an egg batter that the whole thing has been dipped in, and some deep-frying. Usually with some fries on the side, to make sure your calorie intake is high enough.So imagine this: the very same thing…except instead of the swiss cheese, you use Brie cheese. Melty, silky, can’t get enough of it Brie. You’re with me, right? LET’S MAKE ONE.
