Hagelslag for #BrunchWeek #sponsor


So, remember I'm doing things a little bit differently for #BrunchWeek this year?? Click to read about it: here. The gist - I'm sharing some foods from around the world that people eat for breakfast...and it differs greatly from the American regimen of eggs and bacon or pancakes. Today we're heading to the Netherlands our virtual #BrunchWeek tabletop travel.

Now, I lived in the Netherlands for three years when I was a kid and don't remember once eating this for breakfast. Not. One. Single. Time. But, then again, my mom was mean; she's a sweet Nonna, though. But eating bread with chocolate sprinkles wouldn't have been too high on her list of things to allow.

I'm sharing this sweet breakfast treat with you all. In the Netherlands, sprinkles are called hagelslag which translates to 'hailstorm'. Hagelslag comes in a variety of flavors, shapes, and sizes, and are most commonly eaten atop of buttered bread. I had fully intended to make homemade bread for this post, but the week got away from me.



Ingredients
  • bread, toasted or not (it depends on your preference)
  • butter, at room temperature
  • chocolate for shaving (I used Pacari's Piura Quemazon Raw Organic 70%*)

Procedure
Toast your bread - or not. Butter it. Shave chocolate over the top; I used a mandolin slicer. That's it. Does this even count as a recipe??

  1. Haha - love Wendy's comment. :D I agree - it counts as a recipe - you have shared with us a food that most of us have probably never heard of, and it sounds like something everyone should get to enjoy for breakfast at least once! :)

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
