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.

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.

Green Balsamic Beef Kabobs

A simple parsley-based marinade adds a refreshing zest to these Green Balsamic Beef Kabobs. You can shake up the recipe by adding different vegetables to the kabobs — green or red bell peppers would be a nice touch!

Grilling has been my jam this year. Since getting our new grill, all we seem to want to do is fire it up for dinner.

While at a small, pre-season farmer’s market (here in North Dakota, our farmer’s markets don’t really get going until June or July), I picked up a simple brown paper bag filled with woodsy cremini mushrooms. Right away, I knew it was time to experiment with kabobs.

Pesto Bacon Chicken Thighs

Basil is about to be abundant, and there are few better ways to use it than these pesto bacon chicken thighs.

This recipe takes many things I’m fond of and throws it into one cast iron pan for a VIP party in the oven. While the pesto bacon chicken thighs are having their party, you’ll be patiently waiting in the kitchen, drooling at the phenomenal smell emanating from the oven door.

Luckily, there are only 3o minutes to wait until dinner’s ready to go.

Grilled Pork Chops with Shallot Ghee

What’s one of the most basic recipes to add to your repertoire as you learn to master the grill? Grilled pork chops, hands down.

My version takes a very simple approach; just rub the pork chops with an oil and aromatic herb blend, grill, and top with a shallot and ghee mixture.

Now, I definitely have a long way to go before I can call myself a “grill master”, but I’m definitely having a blast with the new grill my man spouse and I bought.
