Now that summer has arrived, we decided our weekly dinners needed an extra special twist: a Secret Basket. I call this Chopped!
Now, there is no competition other than pleasing the mouths and bellies of those who are being fed, but the reason we call it Chopped is because of the secret ingredient basket. The weekly host must have their pantry filled to accompany any surprise in the basket. Then the night before, the basket will be delivered, and the thinking begins. They have 24 hours to come up with a great dish using all of the secret ingredients.
Henwood, Kelley, Pilato, and Clark Household kicks off our Chopped Series of weekly dinners.
Surprise! Here are your secret ingredients:
- Pork Chops
- Puff Rice Cereal
The Judges Panel:
After a whole day of thinking, planning and cooking, the household of David, Jojo, Jack, Sudds, and Kyndal delivered a beautifully creative and tasty dish.
As fierce competitors they wanted to do something different, out of the box, and unexpected and that they did.
Sudds will share what they have made.
The plate: A bourbon marinated grilled pork chop sandwich in Rice Crispy toast topped with an strawberry, bourbon apple sauce. Sides with a mixed green salad and roasted potatoes.
Another look into the Strawberry, bourbon apple sauce. Very creative.
