The day has arrived. The day I venture into the uncharted waters of grilled cheese sandwiches. Bob is the leader of the grilled cheese nation, so it’s time I join forces with him with my first creation: The Breakfast Brie & Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous. Bob’s the master of grilled cheese with creative recipes, beautiful photos and his grilled cheese sandwiches taste as amazing as they look. But there is no better time then the present to jump right in, so let’s get to my first EVER grilled cheese on BS’ in the Kitchen! Continue reading

Whenever “ooey gooey, runny egg yolk” is involved in a recipe, say no more! I WANT IT! Not to mention, bacon AND cheese! Like seriously, what am I doing to myself?! Now I was having a bit of an internal struggle with this grilled cheese, deciding, hmmm should I put a hashbrown in it, or would that be too much? After all these epic grilled cheeses, I was leaning towards excluding it, I mean how much can my body take!?! Of course I consulted with Carlene, and she insisted I put a hashbrown in it…well I guess that’s part of a complete breakfast right!? Clearly she doesn’t care about my health…

Let this mark the beginning of our month long ode to the almighty Grilled Cheese! As part of National Grilled Cheese Month (possibly the best month ever), we are going to be posting a new grilled cheese EVERY DAY, yes you read that right! Every day tune-in to BS’ in the Kitchen and treat your visual tastebuds to some amazing new grilled cheeses (and THEY WILL be amazing!).
To start things off I present the Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese, all the classic flavours of a smoked salmon bagel, with some Gruyere cheese, grilled to perfection! And when I say perfection, I mean it! This sandwich/bagel was amazing! I don’t even like smoked salmon that much, but it paired really well with the Gruyere cheese, I couldn’t get enough! You get the crisp exterior of the bagel, a smooth, creamy layer of cream cheese, a subtle bite from the red onion mixed in with the smokey, nutty flavour from the salmon and Gruyere. Then every couple of bites, there is a burst of pickled-vinegary flavour from the capers and a fresh bite of dill. The ingredients balanced each other so well and made for one unreal grilled cheese!

Being new to collard greens, I am quite the fan, the large, hearty leaves make a great vegetable side dish, or a great vehicle for other ingredients! Although I kind of failed at this being a healthy recipe (see: bacon & cheese), using a collard green as a wrap instead of your typical tortilla style wrap, is a great low carb alternative! Of course if you want deprive yourself, you can take out the bacon and cheese, making it uber healthy! I say spoil yourself though, put the good stuff in!

As with most people, what I eat is often dictated by what I have left in my fridge. In this case it was Greek yogurt and blood oranges. Peeling the orange, and tossing them into a bowl, I sweetened it with some honey and added a drizzle of chocolate balsamic vinegar for some pizzazz, and had myself a wonderful breakfast!

Nothing says Valentines Day like coffee cake right? Well for me, it’s a simple equation, COFFEE = LOVE, so when my girlfriend Megan (The Microwave Master) had to figure out what to get me for Valentines Day, she settled on baking me a coffee cake! Given that she has only baked for me once during our nearly three year relationship, it was sure to be an undertaking! Initially she was going to make it as a surprise, but since I was in charge of supper, and already at her house, we made it together, which was 100% better, because i’m always bugging her to cook with me! It was a wonderful gift, and while I didn’t have my camera on me at the time, I made sure to get some photos the next day so I could document this beautiful cake, and create Megan’s FIRST BLOG POST! YAAAA! Maybe she will become a food blogger too! (Pig’s can fly right?).
Anyways, here is the recipe, slightly modified from The Tasty Bite’s Buttermilk Coffee Cake.

Although this isn’t necessarily a traditional Eggs Florentine (as it doesn’t have any sauce to go with it), it does stay true to “Florentine” which is used to describe a dish with spinach. Regardless of semantics, this was one tasty combo! I mean, I was expecting it to be good; crunchy hashbrown topped with sauteed spinach, feta cheese and topped with a fried egg, running it’s yolk all over the place. You’ve got a win right there. But this was just awesome! All the flavours came together so well. The textures complemented each other, the saltiness of the feta went great with the spinach. I will definitely be making this again!

It has been quite the weekend for food blogging! In an effort to prepare for BS’ in the Kitchen’s first TV appearance (CTV Morning Live Saskatoon – we’re on air shortly after 8:30AM Friday, November 23rd so tune in if you’re local!), Carlene and I have been brainstorming a number of holiday inspired recipes, this being one of them! We picked up plenty of groceries including turkey, egg nog, and cranberry sauce, so you can except a few more recipes in the coming week! This was probably the least holiday inspired recipes (just the cranberry), but it was EXCELLENT! A great blend of tart and sour cranberry sauce, bitter dark chocolate, mild cream cheese smushed between french toast! I hope you’re drooling.

I’ve been looking for a solid breakfast oatmeal pie recipe for a while ever since trying it at our local farmer’s market. After stumbling across this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a whirl. I changed it quite a bit, using the Pinterest recipe more so as a platform to create a fall inspired breakfast pie. Now let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
