 Red, White & Blue Foods

Pin to Pinterest

I am a big fan of Patriotism. When I see documentaries on the founding of our country and the freedom our founders pursued, it seriously brings tears to my eyes. Daily I take for granted my freedoms and I hate that. July 4th (and other American Holidays) remind me of this history and make me want to celebrate.

For Mermorial Day, July 4th and other Red, White & Blue occassions, I love finding different recipes incorporating the colors. We think you will like our round-up of Red, White & Blue Foods to celebrate with your friends and family.

Roasted Asparagus Bruschetta with Goat Cheese

Pin to Pinterest

Bread, Cheese? ABSOLUTELY. The combination of both is the ultimate weekness!  Our Roasted Asparagus Bruschetta is absolutely divine. Youc an serve it as an appetizer or sneak it in as an entree for a lunch. We think it would be great for a ladies luncheon.

Ingredients:

  • 1 8″ ciabatta loaf
  • 1 4-ounce package of Goat cheese, room temperature.
  • 1 small bunch of fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh Parmesan, divided
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large garlic clove, sliced in half
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
  2. On a large baking sheet, toss the washed & trimmed asparagus with one tablespoon of the olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Set it aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the Goat cheese, half the green onion and 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. If the Goat cheese isn’t soft enough, microwave it for 5 seconds at a time until you can easily mix it.
  4. Split the ciabatta loaf in half and then cut each half open. Brush each piece with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
  5. Turn the oven up to broil and toast the bread until lightly browned, which should only take a few minutes. Watch it closely. As soon as it comes out of the oven, rub each piece with the cut side of the garlic. (you can also toast it on a stovetop grill pan)
  6. Spread the goat cheese mixture on each piece of bread, followed by 4-6 asparagus pieces, 2-3 pieces of shaved Parmesan and a sprinkling of green onion.

Enjoy!

I seriously love a salad but the side of something crunchy, salty and irresistible makes it even better! You will love these Parmesan Cheese Crisps. A few suggestions I have are use good quality cheese and a splat mat to prevent sticking and burning.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Finely grate the cheese into a bowl.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with a non-stick pad or Parchment paper.
  4. Add a heaping teaspoon of cheese to the pan until you have six mounds, evenly spread apart.
  5. Lightly press the mounds out until they are flat. Push in any stray pieces that stick out.
  6. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the egdes are golden brown but not all the way to the center. They will look wet, and that’s ok. If you bake them until entirely brown, they will be bitter.
  7. Remove from oven. They will begin to firm up almost immediately.
  8. Carefully remove with a metal spatula and place on paper towels. Place another paper towel on top and gently press down to absorb the grease.
  9. If you’d like to mold them, be sure to do it before they harden, which happens quickly. You can free hand it, or use a large wooden spoon handle to roll them up.
  10. Once they are completely cooled and crisp, you can store them in an airtight container between layers of wax paper for up to three days. Keep them in the refrigerator.

Makes 25-30 crisps

I like to drag my Silpat (or parcment) off of the pan to speed the cooling process up and get another batch in, but it’s up to you if you want to encourage your readers to do that. The recipe works the either way, but that just makes it go quicker.
