Awhile back I made Pulled Pork Sliders with Sriracha BBQ Sauce for a dinner party we were hosting – a big time favorite in our house! The homemade barbecue sauce is so good, there was no way I was going to let any of it go to waste! So when I realized there was some leftover, I immediately knew a pizza was in the dinner forecast!
Roasted garlic, crispy pancetta, creamy sunny-side up eggs, and ooey-gooey cheese – makes this Pizza Carbonara irresistible!
When it comes to the Super Bowl, my proving ground is not on the field, it’s on the beer-stained buffet table in the back. You want ribs, I got ribs. You need wings, I got wings. Craving some chili, I got you covered. Looking for a cheesy sandwich roll? Well look no further. I have […]
Do you love fresh mozzarella? How about mozzarella that’s SO fresh, that it’s still warm? What if I told you that you could make your own in just 30 minutes?!
Have I got a recipe for you this week! If you have a love for garlic knots, you’re going to go head-over-heels for Cheese Stuffed Garlic Knots.
Naan. Chicken Tikka Masala. Sounds like the makings of a pretty kick-ass pizza to me.
I don’t know what it is about leftovers, but I always want to make them into pizzas – Spaghetti Pizza, Chicken Satay Pizza, BBQ Chicken Pizza… they were all made from leftovers. Why reheat the same dish over and over, when you can make it into something new like a pizza!
Thanksgiving is over, the dishes are washed, the silver stashed back in its spot, and the guests have left. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to even look at another turkey for another year! I was in serious need of a turkey detox! I was craving something light, refreshing, something with a little zing! Lebanese Spinach Pies were exactly the palate cleanser my body needed!
Also called, fatayar/fatayer (fah-TIE-ah), these are savory little pies often made with lamb but may alternatively be stuffed with other fillings such as spinach or cheese. The trick to these little bundles, is to make sure that they do not open up while baking. Luckily, these more ‘rustic’ looking spinach pies are just as delicious.
Got leftover spaghetti? If you’re like me, you make enough pasta to feed a small army… there are always leftovers in our house. Last night I made Spaghetti Agli e Olio – a wonderful dish with a ton of garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and parmesan. One of my favorite ways to reinvent this dish, is to make Spaghetti Pizza. Simply add eggs and then sauté until golden brown. What could be easier than that?!
This is not so much a recipe as it is an inspiration – you can use virtually any noodle dish you like and add extra ingredients, such as cheese, bacon, or greens. If you are using a heavily sauced pasta dish, shake off the excess sauce before adding the egg and sautéing. Then add the extra sauce at the end to top the spaghetti pizza.
A few months ago I posted this Chicken Satay Recipe, it has since become an addiction. “What do you want for dinner?” “What do you want to make this weekend?” “What do you have a taste for?” Invariably the answer was, “Chicken Satay!” I couldn’t get enough – I wanted more.
Like any good junkie ‘chasing the dragon,’ I needed a bigger high – the satay alone was no longer enough. I needed to take it to the next level – kick this dish into 6th gear and take this baby off-road. Thinking of new ways to feed my addiction, I thought of making a Chicken Satay Pizza. Why not? There’s BBQ Chicken Pizza and that’s amazing! I’ve even seen a Thai Chicken Pizza, although I didn’t want ‘Thai-like’ flavors. I wanted, quite literally, authentic Chicken Satay on a Pizza. When I proposed the idea to my husband, he looked at me like I was crazy and then said something to the effect of, “That sounds disgusting.”
Confident a Chicken Satay Pizza would be delicious, I pressed on and boy am I glad I did! It was awesome! Even my husband (O ye of little faith) had to eat his words, so to speak. He took one bite and immediately I could see by the expression on his face, that I had hit this one out of the park.
I’ll be honest, this dish takes some time – so it may be better suited for the weekend or a day when you have nothing but time. Certainly, you can use any leftovers from the Chicken Satay recipe to expedite the process, but honestly if your household is anything like mine, you’ll not only not have any leftovers, you’ll be licking the plate clean. Either way, it’s worth it!
