I made these. They were awesome.
Can you believe it’s been a year already? WOW!
Have a wonderful week!
Like I said, quick and easy this time of year.
Rosemary and Cheese Bagel
A pair of scissors
A cake pan
Dried rosemary leaves, to taste
4 slices American cheese
Nutritional Yeast to taste, not too much
Gouda to taste
Pecorino Romano to taste, not too much
(Did I add Italian Seasoning? Let’s just say I did.)
1. Preheat oven to Broil/HI if electric. If not, hopefully you can figure it out. Regular broilers are tricky. This would take far less time under one of those, and could easily burn, so be careful. You should also find another way to set these up instead of using a cake pan.
2. Line your cake pan with foil and spray it. Slice your bagel carefully, and place in pan. Then, place one slice of American cheese over each half.
3. Dice your Gouda. Set little piles on top of each bagel.
4. Sprinkle nutritional yeast, Pecorino Romano, and cut up rosemary leaves on Gouda.
5. Place one slice of American cheese over each bagel. Add Italian seasoning to top, sparingly.
6. Place in oven for about 5 minutes or less. Switch to LOW when needed. This only took about 5 minutes to cook when I did it.
I like salsa, but have never made it. So, I played around until salsa happened, without measuring or taking notes.
4 Roma tomatoes
some vine-ripened tomatoes
some leftover prepped peppers (about a cup)
a bushel of cilantro
2 scallions, diced
some minced garlic
some garlic powder
some dried oregano?
some dried parsley
About 3 of the Romas were diced, the rest were processed. The peppers & cilantro were also processed. Mix it all up until you are happy with the spices. This was stored & served cold with Sweets & Beets.
Every 28 days or so, I randomly go on a cleaning/cooking/washing binge, and the results are often comical. Last week’s flurry of posts was a prime example, and there were still several dishes I made after those posts! My refrigerator is now organized by category and size of item, my clothes are now organized by style and frequency of usage, and the list goes on and on.
The first little dish I made was this big salad. I don’t know what it is about my chemistry that makes me think
but ok, sure, salad is healthy. Why not?
Romaine lettuce, cut as you like it.
Oregano, dried flakes
Basil, dried flakes
A dash of ground black pepper
1. In huge bowl, place lettuce and scallions.
2. In small bowl, place mushrooms, cheese, & spices. Stir.
3. Dump small bowl contents into large bowl. Toss.
I had this mostly with balsamic vinagrette, but it was also good plain. I imagine it would be great with olive oil. It’s pretty easy to veganize this one, too, which I might try doing later. Enjoy!
