If you asked me what my favorite recipe was on this site (and as of this moment, I have over 1,200 recipes), it would most definitely be my cornmeal and brown sugar crusted bacon, OBVIOUSLY. But my second would be one of the simplest, most classic dishes on here, which is super creamy macaroni and cheese, cooked on the stovetop for maximum creaminess. Ready for some good old-fashioned comfort food wonderfulness? Let’s make it!
I really did want to title this post “Welsh Rabbit,” since that is the name that this recipe often goes by, but I was afraid you would think I had gone and cooked up some small woodland creatures. But don’t worry, no bunnies were harmed in the making of this old-fashioned country dish.
In its most basic form, it is a slice of bread doused in melted cheese…but you know I can’t leave well enough alone, and so my version includes a thick slice of tomato, some beer and Worcestershire sauce stirred into the melted cheese (Vermont cheddar of course), some chopped parsley. And bacon. Because I think I have firmly established that every recipe is better with bacon. Right? Right! Let’s make it!
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!
Scallops are the Southern husband’s favorite, and lemon is the Southern husband’s favorite. Butter and cheese are two of my favorites, so I knew if I put all of these things together in one light and lovely recipe for scallops in lemon butter sauce, I pretty much couldn’t go wrong. And bonus points – this recipe takes about 15 minutes tops from walking into your kitchen to sitting down at your table (I love it when that happens!). Ready for dinner party deliciousness that is quick enough for a Monday school night? Let’s make it!
I named this particular omelet recipe the farmer’s market omelet because it uses three of my very favorite kinds of local summer produce: sweet corn, cheery cherry tomatoes, and aromatic basil. The omelet itself is filled with creamy cheddar cheese, and the savory cheese mixed with the sweet veggies…well, let’s just say that when you find yourself at your local farmer’s market, please think farmer’s market omelet. Let’s make it!
