Sheet Pan Salmon #SundaySupper

While I’ve never been one to cook seafood at home I decided to give it a spin since I’ve been wanting to add some fish to our diets.  The one that I have been making lately has been a huge hit at dinnertime and that’s what I like to call ‘Sheet Pan Salmon’.

To say that this dinner is family friendly would be an understatement.  My 10 year old LOVES seafood.  I was a little worried what the 3 year old would think since he can tend to be a picky eater but he gobbled up a few pieces I cut then asked for more.  Even my husband who isn’t a big seafood eater liked it.  For me I’ve always enjoyed seafood and salmon especially.  Growing up my family was full of adventurous eaters and I’m hoping my boys will be too as I expand my home cooking skills.

The fish that I used was on sale and already came seasoned with a spicy peppercorn marinade.  You can choose one already seasoned, it really added to the flavor of the dish and wasn’t overpowered by the topping I added.  This will take one average sized sheet pan.  Cover with tin foil then oil it so the fish doesn’t stick.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Wash and chop the asparagus (my favorite-check out my other Sunday Supper recipe Asparagus Soup), chop the onions then put them both in a bowl.  Drizzle with 1 Tbs oil, salt and pepper.  Stir to coat all the veggies.  Now combine the ingredients for the creamy topping: mayo, Parmesan cheese, garlic, artichoke hearts and lemon juice.

Place the fish onto the greased sheet pan.  Take the asparagus mixture and layer around the salmon.  Spread the mayonnaise mixture on top the salmon.   For the crunchy topping you can easily use breadcrumbs to top this off why not crush up some homemade croutons?  Place it all into the preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes.

I served this meal with some mashed sweet potatoes.  So sweet and creamy they were a perfect balance with the fish.  And here you…..

Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes

Can you believe it’s already been 2 months since Super Bowl?  Geesh!  This recipe is an inspiration from a dip that I made for it.  Quick Tomato Jalapeno Popper Dip from A Joyfully Mad Kitchen. Earlier that day I was browsing through Pinterest and found this recipe then made a special trip to the store just so I could make it.  Worth it! It was just the special treat I was looking for.

While I ate and ate…..and ate on it (I couldn’t stop myself!) I thought about how great this would taste if I used it for the filling in my Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Roll Ups.  Touchdown! I had a winner.  Pair it with some potatoes sprinkled with my favorite Cajun seasoning and we have a dinner, Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes.

Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes | Bottom Left of the Mitten

For this Mitten Movie Night we are drinking some Rapunzel from Arcadia Ales and watching Office Christmas Party.  I know we are way off on seasons here but we don’t judge!  I really love Arcadia Ales and recently paired my Under The Troll Bridge Pasties with their Hopmouth.  That was a great meal and so is this one.  The fruit and hop combo cannot be beat with the spiciness of this dish.

The chicken and potatoes can be made in two dishes but cooked together to save the guess work.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Starting with chopping the potatoes and onions into bite sized cubes.  Drizzle with oil and Cajun seasoning then stir to combine and add to a small greased baking dish.

Thank you again to the Checkered Chef for letting me try out their awesome products!

For the chicken stuffing combine the jalapenos, chilies, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cheese, softened cream cheese and sour cream then stir to combine.  Slice each chicken breast horizontally to make 2 equally sized pieces-will make 8 in total.  Take a tenderizer with the flat side and pound out the chicken until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.  Spread filing on the middle of the chicken then roll.  Roll into the chicken coating then place in greased baking dish.

Put both dishes into the preheated over and cook for 45 minutes.  Plate, crack open a beer and here you are….

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Pimento Grilled Cheese #SundaySupper

Even though it’s Spring it’s still kind of on-again, off-again cold here in Michigan.  Yuck!  But this weekend it was SUPER nice out.  It rained toward the back end of the week but by Saturday it was nice enough that the kids could play outside and today is supposed to be even better.  So let’s start off  Mitten Movie Night with a meal combo that hits the spot no matter the weather, soup & grilled cheese.

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Pimento Grilled Cheese | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Mitten Movie Night was moved this week from Friday when it usually is to tonight.  We saved it because it’s a big TV night in our house.  It’s the The Walking Dead season finale.  Are you a fan?  What are your thought about tonight’s episode? Eeeeks! I found last season kind of bland but this season has certainly made up for it minus the first episode.  To go along with this gooey grilled cheese and yummy soup we are drinking some Guinness Golden Ale.  Now enough about zombies and on to the food!

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Pimento Grilled Cheese | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This soup is so easy!  The thing that I love most about vegetable soups is that you can mix them up and then make them creamy with a little thing called a ‘immersion blender’.  I recently used it to make an amazing Asparagus Soup for another Sunday Supper.  I was trying to recreate a favorite of mine and it turned out perfect!

This soup is just a 4 step process: 1) Chop up the vegetables.  2) Mix these together in 2 Tbs oil.  3) Place on a baking sheet then roast them in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  4) Once they are roasted add to a large stockpot with minced garlic, puree, chicken/vegetable stock and sugar.  Set to low/medium heat while you make up the grilled cheese.

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Pimento Grilled Cheese | Bottom Left of the Mitten

For the grilled cheese you could use any kind of bread.  This sandwich is made with English Muffin Bread that Little A and I made.  He loves to help me in the kitchen so I am always looking for things to bake because it’s something that I would like to get better at as well. Mix the mayo, cheese and pimento in a bowl.  Slice and spread butter on the bread.  Add the pimento mixture in between bread then cook as with any good grilled cheese-3 minutes, flip, then 3 more minutes until the middle is completely melted.  This sandwich is a perfect for dipping.

After your grilled cheese is nice and toast-y and the soup is nice and roast-y your ready.  And here you are….

Asparagus Soup #SundaySupper

When my husband and I got married we went to Riviera Maya for our honeymoon.  Where we stayed at had the best Asparagus Soup.  I would order it every night for a late night snack…and I’ll admit that I would order a steak with it too.  Hey we were on vacation!  So when this weeks Sunday Supper theme came out, Easy Spring Recipes, I knew I had to finally try and recreate this soup recipe with one of my favorite Spring vegetables.

Asparagus Soup | Bottom Left of the Mitten

I looked up the hotel to share with you only to find out that now it’s totally under a different name.  When we went it was the Adventura Spa Palace but now it’s Hard Rock Riviera MayaI was kind of sad finding out about this because it was always a hope that we would go back one day.  I guess though change is inevitable.  It has been over 13 years and it would give us an opportunity to try out a new location.  Until then though I can try to make this soup and reminisce about the wonderful time we had.  And I’m glad I took the challenge to try to make my own because it worked out perfectly!  Now on to the food.

One thing that is plentiful throughout the Spring & Summer in Michigan is asparagus.  I actually grew up next to a field of it when I was a kid and you can find it at roadside stands for cheap!  A great tip is to buy it in bulk and freeze it so when it goes up to almost $5/pound in the Winter I don’t have to worry about it when I have a craving.  Thinking about this got me interested in knowing when fruits and vegetables are at their peak growing season in Michigan.  I found this great resource from PickYourOwn.org with all the fruits and vegetables and when the crop will become available.  Check it out to see what goodies are coming soon to a farm near you.

Asparagus Soup | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This asparagus soup recipe ended up being so simple.   Chop off those pesky hard ends on the asparagus and throw them out.  Then chop the rest in equal pieces.  Heat up some oil in the bottom of a large pot over medium/high heat.  Add the asparagus and 3 cloves of minced garlic.  Sautee for 3-4 minutes then sprinkle 1 Tbs of flour over the top, stir to coat all the vegetables evenly with the flour.  Add chicken stock then set to a low/medium simmer and let cook uncovered for 25 minutes.

Making this soup ‘creamy’ is a two step process.  One is to use a little tool called an ‘immersion blender’.  This is actually something my Mother-In-Law gave me and I don’t use it too often but always glad I have it as part of my kitchen.  If you do not have one I would suggest taking most of the soup mixture and putting into a blender.  Should give the same exact effect with just a little more work.  For the second part of adding creaminess, take a small bowl add the milk, remaining flour and cornstarch.  Stir to combine then add to the soup mixutre.  Finally the last part of making this soup ‘Wow’ is adding the thyme, nutmeg and Parmesan.

Top this creamy soup off with some homemade croutons.  And here you are…..

Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich

This week has been a real whirlwind.  Or a real ‘whirl of wind’ in the words of my favorite TV character Liz Lemon.  The phrase ‘March comes in like a lion‘ could not have been more appropriate for what Southwestern Michigan went through.  Tornadoes and then snow in a 24 hours period.  I’ve lived here my whole life and tornadoes are so rare we’ve maybe had 3 that I can remember in my 40 yrs.  Thankfully there were no injuries and cleanup is under way.  Hopefully Mother Nature got this out of her system and we can continue to the ‘lamb’ portion of this season cycle.

Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Tonight for for Mitten Movie Night  I personally am drinking some Bliss Wheat from Arbor Brewing Company.  Hubby picked this 6 pack up a few weeks ago from a great store in St. Joseph, MI called The Liquor Cabinet.  When looking to get lost in rows and rows of craft beer I suggest you go and take a visit if your in the area.  For entertainment we are watching ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil‘.  I was on the fence about seeing this in theaters choosing to wait for DVD.  If you are looking to hit theaters might I suggest checking out ‘Fist Fight‘, that movie was AWESOME!  Now on to the food!

I call this the ‘deli counter’ sandwich since I get most of the ingredients from saying ‘Can I have a 1/4 pound of this..’ at the deli counter because like the beer being mine I am just making this sandwich for myself.  Mine, mine, mine!  The fellas in my house don’t have the affinity I do for a good sandwich.  No worries, more for me.

Deli Counter Turkey Sandwich | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This amount made for a big sandwich with lots of flavor. If your making one sandwich (like me) get 1/4 sliced turkey then order the smallest bowl of coleslaw (around 1/4 pound).  The deli at my local store has homemade rolls that are amazing so I hope you do too, grab one!  I use them to make my Portobello Mushroom Burger.  Right by the counter you can get small bricks of cheese, so pick one of those up too.  I used Hickory Farms Creamy Swiss Blend.  I was lucky enough to have the dressing so that was taken care of.  Take a baking sheet then cut the bun in half, apply butter and place face down.  Put 1/4 turkey on sheet with the bun then add shredded cheese on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  After all done assemble bun, turkey with the melted cheese, coleslaw and drizzle with dressing.  And here you are…..

Bubble & Squeak

Over the holidays the boys and I were SUPER sick.  Like almost 3 weeks of misery sick.  Good thing we recovered 100% and for me I didn’t lose my appetite so I binge watched Food Paradise episodes and took notes on some of the recipes I saw.  So for tonight’s Mitten Movie Night I am making one that was featured, Bubble & Squeak.  I loved the way that the Chef made this dish so I couldn’t wait to try it for myself and I most certainly wasn’t disappointed.

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Tonight we are drinking some Kolsch 45 from Short’s Brewing.  Short’s has great beer!  I paired one of my sites most popular recipes, Jerk Chicken Sandwiches, with their Bellaire Brown.  For our entertainment as I discussed in my last Mitten Movie Night we are in the middle of a few series and finally getting through the last episodes of Bates Motel.  I really felt like last season had me a little **blah** about where the show was going but it’s really taken a turn for the better and has me newly interested in it.  Okay, so now on to this recipe.

For this classic English dish it’s a basic combination of cabbage and potatoes.  I made this in two pots-a larger pot then a deep skillet.  Clean, peel and chop potatoes then add to water.  Boil for 20 minutes until tender then drain.  While the potatoes are boiling divide the head of cabbage.  You will only need half of this, I made some coleslaw with the remaining half, yum!  Chop the cabbage and onion into small pieces then soften with 1 Tbs butter in another pan.  To the pot that the potatoes were cooked in add them back into the pan and then add the cabbage.  Using a potato smasher smash them together.

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Once well combined set up the staging area for frying.  Into 3 separate containers crack 2 eggs, 1/2 cup flour with salt and pepper to taste then 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.  Bring 1/2 cup oil to frying to med/high heat for frying.  Form potatoes and cabbage into patties, flip on both sides into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs.  Add to oil in the pan frying on each side for 2-3 minutes.  Crispy!!  Remove and add to a plate with a paper towel.

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

The Chef on the show served the patties with poached eggs, ham steaks and Hollandaise Sauce, the sauce is what sold me on making this for sure.  Eggs Benedict is what I order whenever I go out if it’s on the menu.  While I’ve tried to make the sauce many, many times at home with a 100% fail rate I quickly realized there was a better alternative.  The best part is it isn’t too buttery, cook the eggs I add or have a bitter lemon taste. Win!  That alternative is this—>

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Prepare the sauce as recommended on the package.  Then all that’s left to do is to cook the eggs which can be fried or poached.  Heat the ham steaks.  Prepare on a plate and drizzle with the sauce.  And here you are…..

Fried Pork Chops

I have to say that pork is easily one of my favorite meats to cook and eat.   Crock pot, stove top, braised, baked, chops, roast…..so many ways to cook it! What’s not to love?  One way that I make it is a family favorite and that is by frying it.  Just a few ingredients and very little time will leave you in Hog Heaven with my Fried Pork Chops.

When I’m feeling like ‘comfort food’ without the fuss this is the dish I make.  It’s quick and tasty.  The buttery cracker crust is crunchy and satisfying.  And it’s as simple as these steps:

  1. Take a sleeve of crackers and crush them.  If you are careful enough you can do this right in the plastic sleeve and not even dirty a dish or waste a plastic Ziploc bag.  Put on a plate.  Add seasonings.
  2. Beat 2 eggs.
  3. Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in the bottom of a pan.  Set to medium/high heat.
  4. Place pork chop in egg, then crackers.
  5. Then add pork chop to oil and place a lid part-way over the pan.  I find that this cooks them more even.
  6. Cook for 5-6 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops.  I always buy the ‘thin sliced’ package at my local grocery.  If you buy them too thick, they will not cook quick enough and you can risk burning the cracker coating.  Flip then cook 4-5 minutes more.

The best thing about these Fried Pork Chops is that they go with so many different sides.  I made these with roasted potatoes and asparagus.  I also serve it with mashed potatoes and creamed corn (a great combo in itself).  Mix it up and enjoy!  Here you are….
