I’d love to tell you I thought of this recipe all on my own. That it was some figment of my imagination bourne of my vast culinary experience that I just knew would hit the palate the right way.
But I’d be lying.
In truth this recipe is an amalgamation of a bunch of things I’ve seen: on Food Network, in magazines, at fancy dinner events. So I can’t say with confidence that this was an original idea so much as I can say that I guard my food memories very well. Which, to be fair, is a skill!
This was another of the recipes we made at my Laughing Cow cooking party. Fresh off the defeat of “Pork Meatball-gate” I was feeling a bit less than confident about my recipe skills. But we forged on and I’m so glad we did because this was yummy! It’s easy to make but feels gourmet. It’s savory, sweet, chewy and crunchy – it hits all the pleasure zones!
My advice? Make this next time you have someone over to dinner. It looks gorgeous, it tastes divine and it will put you squarely in the dinner host(ess) hall of fame!
