Grilled Corn with Jalapeno-Garlic Butter


I've become addicted to Foodgawker.   At one point I had over 600 items in my favorites, and I've found so many wonderful blogs and recipes.      Found this simple recipe on one of my morning blogwalks, and threw it together to have with grilled hot dogs yesterday.     

I totally cheated and added the chopped jalapeno and garlic to the butter and melted it in the microwave.     I used my trusty corn stripper to make short work of removing the kernels   :)     This was simple and delicious.   

You could also add the ingredients to softened butter, form it into logs and freeze so that you have it ready to go, I plan on doing that for our upcoming vacation! I found this on the Life's Ambrosia blog, this is my 2nd or 3rd winner from there, and I've barely made a dent in checking out all the recipes on the site.    :)    Definitely go check it out!



 Grilled Corn with Jalapeno-Garlic Butter


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  4               ears  corn -- silk and husks removed
  3        tablespoons  butter
  1                     jalapeno -- finely chopped
  1                     garlic clove minced (used jarred)
                        kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper

    Preheat your grill on the high setting.
    Wrap the corn cobs in aluminum foil. Cook on hot grill for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from heat. Allow to cool for several minutes.
    Meanwhile, melt butter in a small sauce pan. Once melted add jalapeno and garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until jalapeno is softened.
    Once corn has cooled enough to handle it, remove the aluminum foil. Holding the corn upright, use a sharp knife to cut the kernels from the cob. (Note: I would do this into a bowl so you don’t have kernels flying everywhere. I learned the hard way). Once all of the kernels are cut from the cob, toss them with the butter mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
