Pork Belly Benedict Smothered Fries

I told you smothered fries were good. If you weren’t convinced before, let me know what you think after devouring a heaping plate of these pork belly benedict smothered fries.

The idea for this dish was sparked at a diner while I was on vacation in Oceanside, San Diego. The diner had pork belly benedict on the menu…and while I didn’t order it, my mind immediately began formulating a plan for a similar meal. Since I’ve recently decided that smothering fries in all sorts of delicious toppings is the best thing since sunflower seed butter, this is the recipe I came up with.

Between the thick sweet potato fries, salted and crispy pork belly pieces, plump poached eggs, and rich hollandaise, this is one hell of a breakfast.

Raspberry Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

Just in time for summer…Raspberry Fudge Swirl Ice Cream is one of the many ice cream ideas birthed from a newfound dairy-free ice cream obsession (as mentioned in my coffee cashew ice cream post).

I’m fond of this recipe because it begins with the basics. You don’t have to make the raspberry fudge swirl if you don’t have the ingredients on hand. Without the swirl, you’re left with a basic dairy free vanilla bean frozen custard. It’s still rich and creamy on its own. Or you could add in your own mix-ins. Totally up to you.

So I’ve tried to make the recipe as detailed as possible, since you can use the ice cream base for so much more than a raspberry fudge swirl.

Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

Make this simple tomato and cucumber salad with mustard vinaigrette to put a spin on your bounty of summer tomatoes. With the zest of the mustard vinaigrette, eating mounds of veggies never gets boring!

I’ve actually been holding onto this recipe since last summer. By the time I had some pictures of the dish (back when I first got my fancy DSLR), tomatoes were out of season and the internet was all about pumpkin spice lattes. I shrugged and held back the recipe, confident it would be great to post the following summer.

I was right! Even though I almost lost the recipe…

When I re-discovered the handwritten recipe card (I’ve since developed a system of organizing potential recipes and ideas online so I don’t have to worry about losing notecards), I knew it would be my contribution for the post-Murph Memorial Day Potluck at CrossFit 701.

Buffalo Chicken Smothered Sweet Potato Fries | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Buffalo Chicken Smothered Sweet Potato Fries

I feel like I’m on to something with these buffalo chicken smothered sweet potato fries.

Smothered fries are like a superior nacho. There, I said it.

Sure, you have to use a fork for smothered fries, but that’s hardly any reason to pass them up.

The spiciness of basic buffalo chicken is evened out by the slight sweetness of oriental sweet potato fries and a simple cilantro mayo sauce. <– That sentence alone sums up how simplistic this recipe can be. Just smother some sweet potato fries in flavorful meat and add a couple toppings.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering to yourself how you could have missed the supreme awesomeness of smothered fries.

Well, you won’t be missing it anymore. Grab a fork—you’re going to want to dig in.

Coffee Cashew Ice Cream

Thick and delightfully creamy, this Coffee Cashew Ice Cream requires no heat, minimal ingredients, and just a bit of your time.

Get ready to dig in. You’re going to love this recipe (assuming you’re a coffee fanatic who eats cashews).

I’ve become enthralled with ice cream this spring…specifically dairy free ice cream, of course! I have a growing list of recipe ideas that I’m slowly working through. But as a coffee addict, an ice cream featuring cold brew coffee was at the top of my list.
