Open-Faced Ricotta, Arugula, and Egg Sandwiches

Enjoy this open-faced egg sandwich any time of day. Served with Parmsean-herb ricotta, arugula, and a poached egg.

Open-Faced Ricotta, Arugula, and Egg Sandwiches 1

Whenever an egg is involved as the central component of a recipe I feel like it’s breakfast food. But what about this sandwich – is it lunch or breakfast? I actually had it for breakfast but it could easily work for lunch as well, or heck even dinner if you prefer a lighter meal at the end of the day.

In my experience with open-faced sandwiches, they are served with a sauce or gravy on top which soaks in the bread and results in the necessity of forks. This open-faced sandwich doesn’t have any of that, at least not at first. But once you cut into the egg and let the yolk run amok you will find that it’s all the sauce you need.

Corn Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Sweet corn, salty Asiago, Italian parsley and smoked paprika make for one tasty frittata. Great for a weekday breakfast or weekend brunch!

Corn Frittata with Asiago Cheese

Since moving back in with my parents my breakfast caloric intake has greatly increased. Between my dad’s killer pancakes, waffles, and breakfast casseroles and my usual onslaught of desserts, it’s not surprising that the portion sizes of the other two meals of the day have shrunk to compensate.

Since my dad does most of the breakfast cooking, I’ve had a shortage of breakfast recipes the past few months. To remedy this I made you a frittata. Actually I made this frittata in June but the photos were taken on a different memory card and were somehow forgotten. Good thing photos of food don’t spoil!

Black Cherry-Peach Crisp Ice Cream

If you thought fruit crisp topped with ice cream was good, try mixing it all together. Sweet and crunchy black cherry-peach crisp layered throughout vanilla ice cream.

The affliction of living with a food blogger is waiting to devour the food until all the photos have been taken at all possible angles. Waiting to be given the go-ahead to eat that gorgeous plate/bowl of food is just as torturous for you as it is for us, I promise. But how do you know for sure when the photo shoot has been completed, particularly for multi-step recipes such as ice cream? Without asking it’s a risky business.

Yes, this ice cream was dug into before I was finished (photo evidence above). It’s my fault for not stressing this fact to my parents but I was still upset to find a large chunk already scooped out, especially when it was not even completely set yet. Normally I don’t bother with pictures of ice cream in the container but I purposely used a loaf pan this time to get all stupid-food blogger on you by putting ice cream in a baking pan and then taking aerial shots of it being scooped out. Like those first steps in pristine just-fallen white snow. I’ll just have to make more ice cream soon – darn.

Thankfully the flavor of the ice cream did not suffer from it’s premature scooping. My parents’ inability to wait just shows how much they could not wait to try it. It starts out simple enough with a vanilla base which is then layered with bits of black-cherry peach crisp (notice those beautiful chunks of crisp topping in the post-churn/pre-freeze photo above). I baked a crisp just to turn it into ice cream. Which means this ice cream tastes just like a black cherry-peach crisp a la mode. Cannot really blame my parents, can I?

Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream

Finish off strawberry season with this homemade strawberry ice cream. The strawberries and roasted with balsamic vinegar for an exceptional flavor!

Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream 1

What a whirlwind of a week! I traveled all over the place and got to see a lot of friends, including a wedding, but I have to admit I am glad I am done driving long distances for awhile. It’d be wonderful if everyone lived in the same city or at least state but at the same time it’s awfully nice to have places to visit.

I made this ice cream before I left on my journey. The last batch of strawberries my dad and I picked were starting to look a little sad which meant they were the perfect candidates for some ice cream. I roasted them in the oven with some balsamic vinegar, pureed them and mixed into the ice cream base before churning. When it came to putting the ice cream in the freezer to harden further it took a lot of self control to not dig in right away – it was so good! Super creamy and a rich flavor thanks to the roasting and balsamic vinegar.

Corn-Goat Cheese Omlet

Wake up with this savory omlet stuffed with sweet corn, creamy goat cheese, and fresh green onion. Easy enough to make even on a weekday morning.

Corn-Goat Cheese Omlet

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial weekend! Mine is full of catching up, shopping, eating, laughing, hiking, oh and did I mention eating? Becky and I have been exploring all over Elizabethtown and Louisville, KY from browsing boutiques/consignment shops, people watching at the BBQ Blues Bikes festival, stuffing our faces at Back Home Hammerheads and the Pie Kitchen and laughing at good jokes at The Laughing Derby comedy club. Although we did flex our shopping muscles and our smiles, today we are going for a little hike to help burn off whatever is left from yesterday’s binge-fest. What’s a visit without an explosion of amazing food? Nothing I want to be involved in that’s for sure. There may even be a distillery tour involved at some point O:-).

But enough about food you cannot see, how about this omlet? I had been meaning to make this for far too long and finally did one morning and it was a snap. Eggs cook quickly and are much more satisfying than a bowl of cereal in the morning. This one was a particular hit due to my weakness for goat cheese. I’ve posted quite a few recipes featuring goat cheese recently. Why do cravings always come in waves? No matter, you need to make this omlet full of sweet corn and creamy goat cheese.

Dad’s Creamy Potato Salad

It’s the week leading up to Memorial weekend and it’s time to share some recipes to get ready for the first big grilling holiday of the year. But before hitting the grill you gotta think about the side-kicks. Check out my guest post today on Wishes and Dishes to get the recipe for my favorite potato salad made by my dad.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Quiche with Hash Brown Crust

Change up your quiche routine with a crispy hash brown crust baked in a cast iron skillet. Fill it up with broccoli, cauliflower, eggs, and cheese or any of your favorite quiche add-ins for a great way to start the day.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Quiche with Hash Brown Crust 2

This post is a bit delayed but better late than never! While in LA Kate requested that I make a quiche one day for breakfast which was perfect because I had been wanting to try out a hash brown crust. Since my nephew Luke loves broccoli I knew I had to incorporate that into the quiche as well, which lead to the creation of this broccoli and cauliflower quiche with a hash brown crust! Instead of baking it in a pie pan, the quiche is baked and served in a cast iron skillet. Food is more appealing when presented in a cast iron skillet, don’t you think? If you don’t have a cat iron, use an oven-safe skillet or a 10-inch spring-form pan.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole

This hearty breakfast casserole is easy to prepare and will completely satisfy with sausage, eggs, cheese, bell peppers, and a crouton base.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole 2

My laptop computer has been on the fritz lately. More than half of the time it freezes up doing even the simplest tasks such as opening Word. (Imagine my annoyance trying to work on this post.) I’ve scanned, rescanned, and cleaned out some files but nothing has helped. Granted it is pushing 7 years old but it spent 2 of those years not connected to the internet. That had to save it a little bit right? Either way, I have a bad feeling it is on its last leg and have begun baking up all the important files. I don’t think I could handle a scare like that after my USB incident.

Anyway, I am sure what you are really interested in is this breakfast casserole. It has the works for making up my favorite kind of breakfast casserole: sausage, egg, cheese, and bell peppers. Be aware the you must prepare it the night before and takes about an hour to cook, which is unsuitable for most weekday breakfasts, but perfect for weekends, brunch or even breakfast for dinner!

Rutabaga Hash with Corned Beef

Looking for a recipe to repurpose those St. Patrick’s Day leftovers? Try this corned beef breakfast hash made with rutabaga or potatoes. Cures hangovers too ;-).

Rutabaga Hash with Corned Beef

If for some strange reason you have leftover corned beef from yesterday and want to figure out an alternative to stuffing it into a sandwich (don’t get me wrong that’s a great option) then pay attention! You can turn those leftovers into a whole new meal. Whether you used my slow cooker recipe that I shared yesterday or another, any leftover starch (potatoes or rutabaga), corned beef, and cabbage and be used to make this breakfast hash. It may also serve as a cure if you got a little too crazy with the green beer yesterday.

Parmesan & Herb Baked Eggs

I may be cooking for 3 these days but I still find plenty of opportunities to whip up single serving recipes, especially when it comes to more gluttonous things such as peanut butter snickerdoodles. However most of the time I make single serving recipes for breakfast or lunch. I don’t think my parents would enjoy watching me prepare and then eat a single-serving dinner, leaving them to fend for themselves.

Parmesan and Herb Baked Eggs 1

While preparing these eggs, my dad commented that he never makes something this fancy for breakfast. I had to laugh because it is actually deceptively fancy. After preparing the shallot and fresh herb topping the hardest part is making sure you don’t bake the eggs for too long. It’s no fun if the yolks arn’t runny! Unless of course runny yolks gross you out, then this breakfast is definitely not for you. As for me? Pass the toast so I can scoop up that golden deliciousness! (And don’t worry, I made my dad some as well.)
