I received Imperial Sugar complimentary but all opinions stated in this post are my own.

When I think of comfort food desserts, my mind instantly goes to brownies. They are easy to make in one pan, don’t take too many ingredients, and can be easily customized to everyones taste.

So for my first #Choctoberfest2019 dessert I knew it had to be blondies. Different from regular chocolate brownies, blondies have a sweet dough that let’s the additional ingredients be the star. Also, using Imperial Brown Sugar leaves that sweet brown sugar taste.

Speaking of Imperial Sugar, for this month only Imperial is holding a ‘Scary Scramble’ Contest 2019! Check out the rules here and find out how to join in on this fun game!

How to make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Blondies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

To a mixer or mixing bowl, add the peanut butter and stir to loosen it up. Add the eggs and melted butter.

Now add the salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Next, add the brown sugar. Then slowly fold the flour a 1/2 cup at a time.

Finally, add the chocolate chips. Stir to combine everything together.

Add the peanut butter brownie dough that’s loaded with chocolate chips into a 9×13 glass pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake for 35 minutes.

Let the blondies cool and then cut into 12 pieces and serve. And here you are…..

Bubble & Squeak

 Boiled potatoes and fried cabbage come together to form a great side dish or main ingredient in this Bubble & Squeak.  Round out the meal with ham steaks, fried eggs and Hollandaise Sauce on the top. 

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Binge watching cooking shows on the weekend paid off big time.  I mean look how good this recipe that was made on Food Paradise!  The Chef made a classic dish, Bubble and Squeak, then added ham, eggs and one of my favorites…Hollandaise Sauce.

What beer pairs well with Bubble & Squeak?

The beer: Guinness, of course.

Would you like an alternative, local Irish beer? Short’s Brewing Uncle Steve’s Traditional Irish Style Stout.

For  Mitten Movie Night why not just sit back and relax?  Play some music, talk with each other and enjoy the fact that Spring is just about here.

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

For this classic dish, it’s a basic combination of cabbage and potatoes.  I made this in two pots-a larger pot then a deep skillet.

How to make Bubble & Squeak:

Clean, peel and chop potatoes then add to water.  Boil for 20 minutes until tender then drain.

Tips for making Bubble & Squeak:

  • Previously, I chopped the cabbage for this recipe but felt like it was too chunky to form good patties.  I updated the recipe and shredded the cabbage in the food processor. 
  • When forming the patties I let them chill in the freezer to firm them up, a step I didn’t do last time – even if you put them in the freezer for 10 minutes they will work much better for frying.

You will only need half of this, I made some coleslaw with the remaining half, yum!

To a food processor add the cabbage, onion and garlic and pulse until they are in small pieces.

Soften 1 Tbs butter in the pan the potatoes were cooked in.  To the pot that the potatoes were cooked in sautee the cabbage mixture for 4-5 minutes.

Add the potatoes back into the pan plus the milk, butter, salt and pepper to taste, and parsley flakes.  Using a potato masher smash everything together.

Bubble & Squeak | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Take a cookie sheet and add parchment paper.  Scoop out 8 patties then put them into the freezer for up to an hour.  This step makes it SO MUCH EASIER to fry the patties. 

Once they have cooled set up the staging area.  In 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.  Take the 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 4-5 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.

Fried Cheese Curds

Fried cheese curds are a Midwest pub staple that can easily be made right at home. Little balls of cheese fried until crunchy. Dip them into marinara sauce or ranch and you have an appetizer or snack that fills that cheese void you’ve been looking for.

We are on to the first Mitten Movie Night of the holiday season.  The tree is up, stockings are hung and I have to admit that I am getting pretty jazzed about it. Along with the holidays, Christmas movie watching and football playoffs you should always have a great snack on hand for that extra binge-worthy, lazy on the couch kinds of days.  That’s where these Fried Cheese Curds come into play.

What movie pairs well with fried cheese and beer?

In the mood for a new Christmas movie?  Check out The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix.  Kurt Russell as St. Nick is pretty genius casting.  Super cute and perfect to watch with the family.

What beer pairs well with Fried Cheese Curds?

The beer: Wisconsin Dells Brewing Co., Sconnie Smash

We just spent a wonderful few days for our youngest’s birthday in Wisconsin Dells.  Yes, Wisconsin Dells can still be fun in the winter.

While the town was pretty dead and not many businesses were open, we stayed at Mt. Olympus which had an indoor waterpark.  After a day of play, we hit Moosejaw Pizza & Brewing Co. for some great food (I even remade my favorite there, Portobello Mushroom Burger), homemade pop for the kids and a cold glass of beer for the adults.

I went with the Sconnie Smash.  This beer was part of the Sconnie Beer line. It was so tart and flavorful, almost tasted like cherry pop.  Before heading home we picked up a few 6 packs at the local liquor store.

Fried Cheese Curds on a pan and one with a bite taken out of it. A craft beer and sauce off to the side.

For these cheese curds, I made them in the way of Culver’s.  Some recipes call for using a batter but I like the breading on Culver’s curds so it was an easy decision of what method I would use.

Here is a pro-tip for making cheese curds:  It takes time!  Don’t plan on having these hot and ready in 20 minutes.  You are looking more like 3 hours.

How to make Fried Cheese Curds:

Open the package of cheese curds and place them on a plate.  Let them ‘sweat’ for about half an hour.

Set up an assembly line of 1 plate flour, 1 bowl of whisked eggs, 1 plate of breadcrumbs mixed with salt and Italian seasoning.

First, roll a cheese curd into the flour.

Steps and ingredients for making Fried Cheese Curds.

Next, dip the cheese curd into the egg.

Roll the cheese curd into the breadcrumb mixture.

Place on a large cookie sheet with a wire rack.  Continue with the rest of the curds.

Put the cookie sheet with the cheese curds into the freezer and let sit for 30-60 minutes.

Set up a frying assembly line.

In a cast iron pan add the oil.  Bring to frying level.  On another cookie sheet add paper towels.

Add about 10 curds to the pan and fry for about 40 seconds, then flip.  Fry another 10 seconds.

Remove and add to the paper towel sheet to drain.

Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake

A few ingredients come together to make this classic Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake recipe.  This cake comes out of the oven with a crispy top and a gooey, fudgy center with chocolate in every bite.  Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake is the perfect dessert for a dinner party or the holidays.

A baked Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake on a plate ready to cut.

Welcome to Choctoberfest 2018!  This is a wonderful time of year.  Over 100 bloggers are in our kitchens and churning out the best chocolate recipes to get you through October and the holidays.  Past Choctoberfest’s have produced some of my most inspired recipes like Homemade Chocolate Pudding and Cracker Candy.  This year I decided to use this as an opportunity to make a recipe I’ve had on my list for a while, Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake (Kladdkaka).

A baked Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake on a plate cut and ready to eat.

*Affiliate links are included in this post. Please read my Discloser Policy. I received Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil complimentary but all opinions stated in this post are my own. For more information about Barlean’s visit their About page.

I was SO EXCITED to see that Barlean’s was a partner again this year.  They are such a great supporter of food bloggers and have participated not only in Choctoberfest but Cookout Week as well.  I made a wonderful Margarita Pie with a pretzel crust with Barleans’s instead of butter and it turned out great.

Why swap out butter for butter flavored coconut oil?

  • It’s a simple 1 for 1 swap.  Use butter flavored coconut oil in cookies, brownies or most anywhere that butter is called for in recipes.
  • Unlike regular coconut oil, you almost completely miss the coconut taste.
  • It’s not just for baking!  Butter flavored coconut oil works great in sautees, sauces, and light frying as well.

I’ve had this cake on my mind for the past year or so.  While I’ve been sharing more recipes from Michigan and my family, I have been wanting to delve a little deeper into recipes from my heritage as well.  My dad’s family is from Sweden and my husband’s family is Norwegian so you might be seeing more and more of these recipes on the blog soon.  Until then, let’s get on to this delicious chocolate cake recipe.

How to make Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl whisk 2 eggs.

Ingredients and steps for how to cook a Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake.

Slowly whisk the sugar in with the eggs.

Add a mesh strainer to the top of the bowl.  Pour in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.  Lift up the strainer and gently shake all the ingredients into the bowl.

Pour in the vanilla.

Ingredients and steps for how to cook a Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake.

Next, melt the Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil then add pour it into the flour/cocoa mixture.  Whisk to combine.

Cover the bottom of an 8″ spring-form pan with parchment/baking paper.  Grease the sides so they release easily.  Add the batter to the pan.  Bake for 25-28 minutes.

Remove the sides of the pan then let cool. then sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Tips & Variations for Swedish Sticky Cake:

  • Don’t have butter flavored coconut oil on hand?  Swap out 1:1 for unsalted butter.  If you only have salted butter omit the salt.
  • No springform pan?  That’s fine, just use a regular pie plate that is well oiled.
  • Make it even better served with fresh fruit or fruit sauce.

Toad In The Hole

The classic English dish Toad In a Hole is made with sausage, a simple bread pudding, then topped with a mustard-onion gravy. This is a perfect meal when you are looking for something a little different.

A piece of sausage and bread pudding aka Toad In a Hole cut with gravy on it ready to eat!

Welcome to Mitten Movie Night the Royal Wedding Edition! I decided to make a classic English dish for this special occasion.

I hadn’t had Toad In The Hole before I knew that it was going to be something that I would love.  Meat, onions, carbs….GRAVY!!!  Of course, I had to add some Michigan appeal to this dish by using Beer Brats made with Founder’s Dirty Bastard Craft Beer.  We eat these a lot during the Summer and they worked great in this recipe.

What beer pairs well with sausages?

The beer: Soft Parade from Short’s Brewing.

While I did do some research about favorite beers of England I felt like I would rather share a Michigan beer that I felt was fitting not only with the meal but also the name, Soft Parade from Short’s Brewing.  This beer is full of fruit flavor: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

Fruit beers pair so well with dishes that aren’t exactly complex in flavor and that’s why a simple sausage dish like this is perfectly contrasted with this beer. Plus the name gets you in the mood for the ‘procession’ that the Royal Wedding will have.

See how I did that?  Wink, wink….I know it was a weak analogy but like most things, I’m going with it!

A big bowl of mustard-onion gravy.

So after going through about a million recipes, I settled on this one from Cooking Channel TV for Toad in the Hole with Mustard-Onion Gravy.

How to make Toad In a Hole:

For the base, it’s just flour, salt, eggs, and milk.  To one bowl add the flour and salt.  In another bowl add the milk and eggs then whisk to combine.  Slowly add the milk and egg mixture to the flour whisking it together to make a batter.

Simple enough but then the trick seemed to be what you do with it once the ingredients are mixed together.  Half the recipes said to just keep it out on the counter for 10-30 minutes.  The other half said that you had to keep it in the refrigerator overnight or at least a few hours to set.  What I did was make the batter in the morning and put in the refrigerator until I was ready to make this about 6 hours later.

Flour in a bowl with eggs and milk off to the side.

The other part of this recipe that was in all of them was heating up the pan you are cooking the pudding and sausages in.  About an hour before you are ready to put this on the table take the batter out of the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Now put the pan you plan on baking this in into the oven.  I used a metal pan because I was worried about adding the cold batter to a hot pan would break it. 

Next, brown the sausages in a pan on the stove with 1 Tbs oil.  Brown all sides which take about 8 minutes but don’t worry about cooking all the way through.  Reserve any oil in the pan for the gravy.

Carefully take the pan out of the oven then add a small bit of oil to that pan.  You can spray or add the oil then spread with a paper towel but please use caution since the pan is extremely hot. Now add the batter and top with the sausages.

Return it to the oven and cook for 45 minutes.

For the gravy use the reserved oil you left from cooking the brats and add the thinly sliced onions.  Using very low heat cook them down slowly for about 10 minutes.  To the onions add the flour and stir to coat.  Now add the beef broth, mustard.  Continue cooking down until it thickens to a gravy consistency.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Take out the Toad In The Hole from the oven.  Slice and serve topped with gravy.

And here you are……

  2. To the onions add the flour and stir to coat. Now add the beef broth, mustard. Continue cooking down until it thickens to a gravy consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Take out the Toad In The Hole from the oven. Slice and serve topped with gravy. Enjoy!

Welcome to this anniversary edition of Mitten Movie Night! Anniversary of my blog? No.  Anniversary of the first Mitten Movie Night? No.  It’s actually close enough to 14 years of marriage for me and my hubby.  It is next week so why not celebrate now?  And I think I came up with the perfect dinner for my slider loving hubby, scotch egg sliders.

I was first introduced to the scotch eggs just 3 short years ago.  My friend had a party pretty much every Friday over the Summer and everyone was to bring a dish.  One Friday, someone brought them and let me tell you-they went fast! Luckily I got one and I was blown away at how delicious they were.  So then, like most good food, I set out to make it at home.  I thought that I would give it a twist and thus these scotch egg sliders were born!

What beer pairs well with Scotch Egg Sliders?

The beer: Mosaic-Hero IPA from Revolution Brewing.

What beer pairs well with sliders and craft beer?

Then we are binge watching the last few episodes of Ozark.  Have you seen this show? I cannot believe that it took us so long to finally get into it.  I’ve heard several people rave about it and I’ll tell you, the reviews are spot on because it’s amazing.  I will say that Jason Bateman plays the perfect ‘man who has decided to not give a sh!$ anymore’ character.  So enough about that and my anniversary and on to the food!

How to make Scotch Egg Sliders:

To start with let’s boil up 4 eggs.  I boil them for around 14 minutes so they are hard in the center.

Now I’ll be honest that while I was excited about this recipe I was NOT excited about peeling eggs.  I am just bad at it!

Need an EASY WAY to peel hard-boiled eggs?

Exhibit A: The below photo with the sad face is my failed attempt.  I knew if I kept that up there would be no egg to go into the middle of my sausage so that was a fail.

So instead of continuing, I hopped online and actually found a video for ‘5 Egg Hacks‘ and guess what, it worked!

See Exhibit B: The below photo with the happy face.  Success!  No more wanting to scream anytime I want to make a delicious hard boiled egg. How ’bout that!?!

Scotch Egg Sliders | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the eggs enough so you have 8 thick slices.  I basically didn’t use the ends.  If you don’t want to have them go to waste maybe boil extra eggs and use the ends to make some of my son’s favorite potato salad?

Now take the sausage and cut it into 8 pieces.  Take a little over half of the meat of one patty and flatten it down.

Place the egg in the middle. Roll the edges over the egg then place the remaining sausage on top.

Smooth the edges so that it hides all the egg and makes a nice patty.

Line a baking pan with tin foil then spray with cooking spray.  Now set up the breading station-flour on one plate, egg in a bowl then panko breadcrumbs on another plate.

Take each patty and cover all sides with the flour.  Then dip both sides into the egg.

Finally, cover in panko.  Place onto the baking sheet.  Cook for 35 minutes flipping halfway through.

Basically, that is all the cooking that these scotch egg sliders take.  Grab some slider buns and grainy mustard.

Our local store just got a new line of sauces and I picked up the Smoked Porter Mustard for this recipe.

Assemble the scotch egg sliders: bun, scotch egg patty then the mustard.  Simple and delicious.

And here you are……

Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich #SundaySupper

Eggs, spinach, and ham made into an omelet resting on crispy ciabatta bread. Spread pesto on the bread to makes this Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich.

Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Are you a breakfast eater?  I am not really.  I prefer to get up and have my coffee then maybe eat an early lunch.  However, on the weekends it’s a different story.  Weekends are for big breakfasts with the family on Sunday.  Eggs, bacon, pancakes, french toast or omelets.  This Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich is the perfect balance of eggs and ham, chewy ciabatta bread and one of my favorite condiments, pesto.

The pesto is really what made this sandwich great.  I’ve been growing basil out in my back yard for a few years now so it’s pretty much a staple in our house.  Don’t have fresh basil?  I find that the store version is good too so don’t get overwhelmed with an extra step if you don’t want to.  The other good thing is that this sandwich can be made all in one pan.

This recipe is based off a sandwich I had when my husband and I took a little trip to Toledo & Cleveland last year.  While there we stayed at a beautiful hotel, the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade.  It was a great hotel right across from all kinds of restaurants, shops, and a really cool brewery.  It was a great trip! We visited the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and my favorite, The Christmas Story House!  I also got to eat a great breakfast sandwich in the hotel restaurant, this Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich.  Now on to the food!

How to make a Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich:

Heat up 1 tsp of oil then add the onion.  Let soften for 2-3 minutes stirring so they don’t burn.

In a bowl combine the eggs and milk and whip to combine.  Now add spinach to the pan.  Cook for about a minute to let it soften.  Add the eggs on top.

Using a spatula thin out the eggs and cook by pushing the bottom up and letting the egg run under.  Cook for about 2 minutes then flip.  Now add ham to the other side of the pan.

Heat through for 2 minutes while the other side of the egg cooks.  Put ham on top of the eggs.  Take the 2 pieces of bread and spread butter on them then place face down in the open section of the pan.  Let brown for about 1 minute.

Now time to plate it.  Place 1 piece of bread browned side down.  Put stacked eggs and ham on top of it.

Add a generous amount of prepared or freshly made pesto to the other slice of bread and put on top.

Raspberry Cheesecake with Pound Cake Crust

Cheesecake is the perfect dessert for summer, especially when you use raspberries! This Raspberry Cheesecake with Pound Cake Crust combines a creamy cheesecake filling filled with tart raspberries and a buttery pound cake crust.

A slice of Raspberry Cheesecake on a plate.

I love raspberries.  This time of year you can finally get them reasonably priced, so I take full advantage of it.  Recently I was watching one of my favorite shows, Diners Drive In’s & Dives, and they showed a raspberry cheesecake recipe that looked out of this world from Tin Roof Grill in Utah.  While I didn’t get down the whole recipe what I was most infatuated with was the crust…..made of pound cake.  I knew right then that this was so getting made to the best of my ability.

I was in a baking mood the day I made this so I ended up going double duty and made my first ever pound cake.  Using Paula Deen’s Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe.  It turned out so great!  So great that I got anxious and didn’t let it cool enough so you will see that it ended up not coming ‘perfectly’ but you know what?  That’s okay! 

A Raspberry Cheesecake with Pound Cake Crust sliced in the center and ready to serve.

Where do you get recipe inspiration from? I get mine from foodie travel shows. My husband and I have even visited a few places that we’ve seen featured on them. We have had some great BBQ in Memphis and Detroit. You can say I have a bucket list, that mostly involves seeking out places to eat.

How to make Pound Cake Crust:

First, let’s start with the Pound Cake Crust. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a spring-form pan.  Cut the pound cake into slices. 

Lightly press down on the pieces so it forms a nice crust and covers up any large holes.

Once you are done layering the pound cake now it’s time for the filling. 

Pound cake sliced and put into a spring-form pan.

Tips for making a cheesecake with pound cake crust:

  • Like I said above, I got too eager with mine and took it out while still hot so it kind of fell apart.  However, I was still able to get enough slices to cover the bottom and the sides.
  • Save the ends of the pound cake to cut into smaller pieces to put on the cheesecake before putting into the oven. I like using the ends because they are a little crunchy and get even crunchier as the cheesecake bakes.

How to make Raspberry Cheesecake Filling:

In a bowl or stand mixer beat together cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla, whip cream, and sour cream.  Pour mixture into the crust then top with the chopped up cake pieces.

Cheesecake filling with raspberries being mixed into it. Slices of pound cake off to the side.

Tips for using raspberries in recipes:

  • So you don’t damage the raspberries, fold them gently into the cheesecake filling. Raspberries a little more delicate than say blueberries or strawberries so handle them with care.

As a safeguard, I always put my spring-firm pan on top of a larger cookie sheet in case of any drips.

Place into the preheated oven and cook for 1 hour. 

Once the center of the cheesecake is cooked, check by poking the center with a knife and see if it comes out clean. Run a knife around the edges of the springform pan then let the cheesecake completely cool completely.

Release the lever on the springform pan. Remove the raspberry cheesecake from the bottom pan and place on a serving try, or you can serve right from it.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container can be stored up to 3 days.

If you like raspberries try my unique combination of savory and sweet with this recipe for Ham and Potato Soup with Raspberry Pie Dippers. Flaky crust and a sweet filling dipped into a warm bowl of soup makes for a great comfort food recipe you will crave all year long.

And here you are…

Avery’s Potato Salad #CookoutWeek

Summer requires a hand full of quick sides to please cookout guests whether it’s planned or impromptu.  I think my Avery’s Potato Salad fits any party big or small.

Averys Potato Salad | Bottom Left of the MItten

We’re finally here! We made it! Que Will Smith ‘Summer, summer, summertime…summertime.’ Break out the flip flops and tank tops.  Get ready for long days in the pool or at the beach and bellies full of BBQ.

When I told my son I was making one of his favorites he was excited.  I’ve made some of his favorites like Cheesy Pierogi Casserole, Easy Chicken & Dumplings or Out of a Can Chili but this is a very specific favorite of his.  He takes the first bite and says ‘I love this!’ so I just started calling it ‘Avery’s Potato Salad’.

Averys Potato Salad | Bottom Left of the MItten

The key to this recipe is to have equal parts potato to equal parts egg.

How to make Avery’s Potato Salad:

Chop the potatoes into small pieces then add to a pot with the eggs.  Add enough water to the pot to cover them cook over medium heat (not so high it boils over) and cook for 14 minutes.

Using a colander (or this fancy little draining spoon I have) to drain the potatoes then run under cold water to bring the heat off of the potatoes.

At this point, I put the potato and eggs into a bowl then put them into the refrigerator for a half hour or so.  This cools the potatoes down more and makes it so I don’t burn my fingers peeling the eggs.  That is no fun!

Averys Potato Salad | Bottom Left of the MItten

Once the items are cooled peel the eggs. (Check out a great tip for peeling eggs here!)

Add the cooked yolks to the potatoes then chop them into small pieces.  Dice up the onion and add that.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl: relish, mayo, mustard, sugar, and vinegar. The sugar and vinegar add a slight sweet and sour taste that gives the salad a nice kick to it.

Return it back to the refrigerator for another hour or so to let the flavors meld.

Top with oregano or paprika and here you are….
