Cajun Ham & Rice Soup

I’m still working on a few leftovers from Easter, how about you? One thing I love to do is make soup with my ham. This year I made a Honey Glazed Cajun Spiced Ham, so I knew that Cajun Ham & Rice Soup would bring those flavors home.

Three Meat Frittata – Instant Pot or Stove-Top

Frittatas - this one's great either Instant Pot or on the Stove! Great way to use any leftovers in the fridge!

You know what I like, and I hope you do, too, since I’m posting one? Frittatas. And I like them for so many reasons. They’re delicious and the frugal me loves that frittatas are a great way to use a bit of this and a bit of that. And the healthy me loves that anything can go in a frittata.

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well, I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)

Featherbed Eggs

Eggs cooked over a savory, custard soaked bread layered over ham - and that ham has such crispy edges!.

This dish was a new one on me…Featherbed Eggs. I mean, how could you not fall in love with a name like that? It makes me think of country inns with crisp white sheets, quilt draped beds. Cotton curtains blowing in a warm breeze. Comfort.

Instant Pot Opelousas

Opelousas - a Southern Rice based dish, this one's made from leftover Ham and cooks up beautifully in the Instant Pot!

So you all know (if you follow me – and if you don’t, I’d love it if you would, here with email (on the right) or on facebook or twitter (on the left)) I cooked up a ham for Thanksgiving. And what a ham it was! The stunning and absolutely delish Biltmore House’s Tawny Baked Ham. It was just a half ham, but of course there were leftovers!

Summer Bean Salad with Corn & Tomatoes

An adaptation of Chef Kindred's (Kindred's Restaurant NC) Bean,tomato, corn salad in with pot likker. Different & very good!

Here’s a perfect salad/side that just screams Summer! Maybe that’s why Chef Joe Kindred (Kindred’s Restaurant in Davidson, North Carolina – yep, the same restaurant responsible for Kindred’s Milk Bread) named the original recipe “Summer Bean Salad.”

Original Cheese Zombie Sandwiches

The Original Cheese Zombies: Baked Cheese Sandwiches full of ooey, gooey deliciousness and an easy home-made dough (use store bought in a pinch) these are fantastic for a crowd and freeze well. The classic is cheese but add what you'd like inside!

It might have been the name that drew me in. The Cheese Zombie. It was the wholehearted endorsement of those who had grown up on Cheese Zombies that hooked me. A Cheese Zombie is a sheet tray of home-made bread layered with an oozy, gooey American cheese and Cheese Zombies are sooo much better than they sound.

Original Cheese Zombies
The last time I made Zombies, I made 1/3 plain cheese, 1/3 with pickled Jalapenos and 1/3 with ham. The possibilities are endless.
