So have you guys been getting some incredible corn this year? I have been so blessed to be able to participate in some of our local Food Fairs and last week there was a lot of corn! So expect more corn recipes coming up. In the meantime, yanno it’s so hot and I’ve been grilling a lot so it was inevitable, amirite? I had to post my Best Grilled Sweet Corn.
Is running out of barbecue sauce an emergency? In my kitchen, it can be! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened my fridge looking for barbecue sauce only to realize I’m out! Honestly, I either have too many kinds cluttering up the fridge door or none at all. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between! But one thing I almost always have on hand is ketchup, and it makes a fab base for this Quick Emergency Barbecue Sauce.
These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!
Sometimes you just need an epic burger and for me, that sometimes is a summer gathering or maybe a summer holiday. That’s when you need a knock your socks off show stopper of a burger. And if it’s messy, who cares when it’s these Southwestern Queso Burgers!
First of all, I gotta count on you guys for a little help. Whatever you do, please don’t tell any of my Wisconsin neighbors (Wisconsin is credited for the innovation of the Beer Brat…even Wikipedia says so) about this recipe. A Minnesotan messing around with their beloved Beer Brats and making outrageous claims could just be the final straw. None of us can take one more disaster or any more stress this year! I think I’m already on the edge! So now, with that settled, let me tell ya how to make what I think is better than classic Beer Brats.
