Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese

Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #salmon #grilledcheese #bsinthekitchen

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!

Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon

With the holidays around the corner, appetizers are a much needed item at any get together, so why not spend a little extra time and make some delicious homemade ones? Better yet, get some friends together, make a large batch, have some drinks and have yourself an appie making party! As part of our holiday inspired cooking segment on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon, tomorrow morning (December 18th – 8:30AM), I tossed around a few different ideas, but ultimately decided on creating these Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon appetizers, and boy am I glad I did! They are DEELISH!

Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Stuffed French Toast

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.

Jalapeno Popper Steak Quesadilla

Jalapeno Popper Steak Quesadilla

The jalapeno popper madness continues!! This time steak is joining the party! With leftover steak in my fridge, tortilla shells on my counter and a major craving still intact from my last jalapeno popper adventure, this recipe was destined to happen! So I used the same recipe as the grilled cheese a couple posts ago, but doubled the jalapenos since the quesadilla was larger than the grilled cheese!

Today we have a BS’ In The Kitchen original recipe! Aka, Carlene and Bob just throw a bunch of ingredients together and hope for the best. We decided to go for panko breaded chicken breasts, stuffed with shrimp, cream cheese and Italian cheese. I think you’d really have to mess up to make that combination taste bad, so we felt pretty confident with our recipe, here it is:
