Cranberry Brie Bites

I love finger foods. They always look so appetizing. I know holiday parties are winding down, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring these bites to your next get-together, or make them for yourself and enjoy them on the couch.

Ingredients

  • Store-bought puff pastry
  • 1 14oz can Whole Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 Wheel of Brie, cut into cubes
  • Zest of half a orange
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon

Let’s Get Cooking

Preheat the oven to 400F

Pour the cranberry sauce into a bowl and add in orange zest + cinnamon and stir.

Cut the puff pastry into squares, about 4×4 in, and place into muffin tins.

Place one of the brie cubes into the pastry and top with the cranberry sauce.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes and enjoy!

Made with Love,

Fried Green Tomatoes

With the fresh tomato season coming to an end, I had a surplus of green tomatoes that hadn’t quite ripened yet. I decided that it was better to use them then let them go to waste, so here we are making fried green tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Green Tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1 TBSP Paprika
  • 1 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Goat Cheese

Let’s Get Cooking

Grab your large frying pan and pour in a thin layer of vegetable oil, just enough to cover the tomato slices.

Season the tomato slices with salt + pepper

Whisk together eggs + milk in a small bowl. On a small plate combine bread crumbs + corn meal+ paprika + garlic powder + salt + pepper and mix.

Take the sliced tomato and coat in bread crumbs, then egg wash, then bread crumbs again. Repeat this process with the rest of the tomatoes.

Place the breaded tomatoes into the hot oil. Cook about 3-5 min each side, or until browned. Remove from oil and place on paper towels.

Once done, stack the tomatoes with goat cheese in between layers. Serve with your fav marinara sauce or as is!

Always Hungry,
