So who said that carnivores don’t like veggies? My boyfriend is notorious for ignoring the greens and isn’t so big on the cheese. But he liked my veggie paninis! And I don’t even have a panini maker. What I do have is a George Foreman Grill. Works just the same. Eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese with a cilantro and basil pesto. The trick is not to add too much salt to the pesto and to only grill the veggies until they are a little squishy. Pile it on a baguette and squish it in a George Foreman for a few minutes…presto! Scrumptious.
Just on a whim I made Neely’s BBQ Sauce after seeing the couple use it on the Food Network. Oh my goodness it’s delicious! It comes out really thick after simmering for an hour and 15 minutes, but it’s sooo worth the time. Unfortunately it reduces quite a bit, and I halved the recipe so there wasn’t much left at the end. But I’m betting it’ll taste really good on pork chops.
