A little sweet for my tastes, hence the reasoning behind only 1 teaspoon of maple syrup, but if you dig the sweet stuff feel free to add more like a tablespoon or two of syrup. I served these with Sriracha and it was the perfect complement.
So many great flavors all together in one bite! I used chorizo from my Hettie Belle Farm meat CSA and it instantly became a favorite. This makes a hearty appetizer or even main dish.
Hearty hors d’oeuvre. Sweet, savory, and tangy. Goes over well with all carnivores (and anyone else who just loves bacon).
Thanks to Crust Bakeshop for inspiring a rosemary apple tart out of my kitchen this holiday season. The bacon and caramelized onions are a delicious savory addition.
Fishcakes are always tasty, but the smoky poblanos add a new flavor dimension to these.
These Asian style lettuce wraps are great for dinner or an app. They made for a tasty, tortilla-less alternative at a taco themed potluck.
This sweet and savory pie was a big winner as a Thanksgiving side dish (and appetizer, and dessert).
Inspired by a recipe on Epicurious for pork meatball banh mi, which is fantastic, but these meatballs also stand alone as a great appetizer.
Hearty side dish or hors d’oeuvre with pork belly and cooked in pork fat to add the perfect flavor.
A standard fishcake recipe with panko, spices, and herbs.
