Happy Belated Halloweeeeennnn!!
Pictures coming soon 😀
And before you give me a hard time let me just say I swear I TRIED to put out a halloween recipe.
Honest, I did.
I was going to make black and white candied apples with black and orange forest twigs growing out of their stem.
Then roll them in almond silvers before the chocolate got warm so they’d look all thorny and shit.
It was going to be so fucking dope.
Cut to last week.
The first batch of black chocolate burned.
I used the remainder chocolate on the second batch – the one that melted like wet cement.
Which meant I had to go out and buy more chocolate.
Came back with more of the same black chocolate.
Melted it according to the instructions on the box this time around only for it to come out WORSE.
Like I can’t even begin to tell you how much of a fucking disaster that was.
But I said “fuck it – let’s see if we can twirl an apple around in it anyway.”
This is what I got.
Like I said, I tried.
So here’s a polenta burger I made a few days ago when I was sorting through my pantry.
In the effort to clean out the rest of the stuff in my fridge before we left town for the Halloween weekend, I decided to use up this roll of pre-cooked polenta that I picked up from Trader Joes almost 2 months ago for absolutely no reason.
Sadly, I only had eggs and leafy veggies left in my fridge so this isn’t really a breakfast burger but if you have any bacon, ham or chicken lying around – make me proud.
Grilled Polenta Breakfast Burger
What I Used
Pre-Cooked Polenta (sliced ½” thick). An Egg. Small Handful Assorted Leafy Green Herbs (Cilantro, Basil, Arugula etc). 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinaigrette. 2 tsp Coconut Oil (substitute olive oil). 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar. Salt. Pepper. Feta Cheese (optional).
What I Did
Slice the polenta ½” thick,.
Lightly sprinkle with salt & pepper and place on lightly oiled grill.
Roughly chop all the herbs and put in a bowl.
In a separate smaller bowl, mix the balsamic vinaigrette, coconut oil & red wine vinegar together.
Shake in a little salt and pepper.
Mix the dressing in with the leafy greens.
Poach or fry an egg.
Then build the burger the way you would any burger, sandwiching the egg somewhere in the middle.
