What's for dinner?

Post by Layne »

A friend's fig tree is producing more figs than she knows what to with, so today she gifted a bag to me because she knows I love them, so for tonight's dinner...

Fig Pizza with Mission Figs, Bacon, White Corn, Tuscan Kale, caramelized Red Onion, Garlic, Rosemary, Thyme, and Chevre.

Drizzled with pomegranate molasses when it came out of the oven.

Brushed crust with Greek Yogurt, drizzled with olive oil,and sprinkled with grated Italian cheese mix. Sauteed the toppings, other than figs and chevre, in bacon fat before placing on the pizza and popping it in the oven.​

Wow that looks beautiful! The variety of ingredients in not familiar to this Iowan - I've never even had Corn on a Pizza!

Thanks Paige. I got out of the box years ago...and now they won't let me back in. Works out just fine though because I get claustrophobic.

Thanks Betsy. My wife said it was to die for...I told her that wasn't necessary.

I once had a fig, Brussels sprout, blue cheese dish at a local restaurant that was definitely to die for! Tried to get the recipe from them, but not successful. Been trying (also unsuccessfully) since then to replicate it.

I can see, taste, and put that together in my mind, and yeah it would be delish; although I would probably use gorgonzola.

I have never understood chefs that won't share recipes. A mentor early in my career told me that if I ever got to thinking that I was God's gift to the culinary world with a dish I created...to get over myself, because someone else has done it already. Just like recovery, I learned from others who went before me, culinary is the same.

LOL, I only started writing down recipes when people started requesting them Turned into a good habit! :~)
