Jalapeno Popper Pizza

(originally made 6/2012)

Jake and Tim spent Father's day at an amusement park, so I was free to make whatever I wanted for lunch  :)   I had marked this to try during last week's Challenge, but never got around to it.

I used my go-to crust, the Soft Garlic Breadstick dough.  My shallots were dried, so I let them soak for a little while with the jalapenos and oil.    I used the odds and ends of the cheese I had on hand, which was a bag of Mexican blend and some sharp cheddar.     I brushed the crush with a little oil before baking.

Really enjoyed this one and definitely will be making it again.  I froze a few pieces to see how it will reheat, but it's pretty simple to scale the recipe back on the days that one of the non-heat loving guys are home and we do individual pies.

I've seen this around the internet in a few places, but the recipe I used came from here

                          Jalapeño Popper Pizza


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        Olive oil
  4  slices  bacon -- chopped (I nuked mine and chopped with kitchen shears)
  2    jalapeños -- sliced (used jarred)
  1   shallot -- sliced (used Penzey's dried)
     1/4  cup  semolina or yellow cornmeal -- (used cornmeal)
  1 ball Fail-Proof Pizza Dough -- (used TOH's Soft Garlic breadstick recipe)
  6 ounces  cream cheese -- softened
  1 1/2 cups  grated jalapeño monterey jack cheese -- (used mexiblend, cheddar)

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza pan with olive oil.
    Heat a small skillet over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
    In a small bowl, combine the jalapeños and shallot with 1-2 teaspoons olive oil.
    Working on a surface that has been sprinkled with semolina or cornmeal, roll out the pizza dough into a 10-inch-diameter round. Transfer to prepared baking sheet or pizza pan.
    Spread the cream cheese evenly over the top, leaving a 1-inch border.
    Top with jalapeño monterey jack, jalapenos, shallots and bacon.
    Place into oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is crisp and brown on the bottom and the cheese is melted on top.
    Cut the pizza into wedges and serve immediately.

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
