    Crab meat thingamajig

    So I had some crab meat leftover from the other day. Every Sunday morning I try to whip up a special breakfast for the family. So here we go. Drained my crab meat. Diced some leeks and red pepper Chopped up some bacon and rendered it until almost crispy. Dumped the leeks, peppers. Thought I'd add a little heat so I added a good pinch of chipotle powder and a pinch of salt Got my lobster stock ready. Added that with a good amount of heavy cream to the bacon mess. Mix that mess up and bring it to a very slight simmer. Take it off the heat and let it cool slightly. Got some croutons that I made from my sandwich bread. Add some lemon zest, squeeze the juice in the skillet with the bacon mess. Here I mixed the bacon and croutons, added one beaten egg. I wanted that mess to be well hydrated and not soggy. Chopped up some tarragon. Added the drained crab meat and mixed Well. Season with extra salt. Pulled out my mini cast iron skillets and divided the mess up. Bake in 400 degrees oven until nicely browned. Topped with soft boiled eggs and hollandaise sauce. Ate these right out of the mini skilletso. Fantastic!

      Pretty easy if you don't take cooking as a chore.

      Looks fantastic. I wish I liked eggs. Also, I LOVE the BTB Lobster Base. I use it to make my quick and easy rice cooker seafood paella.

          Much appreciated Strat. I wish I did poached eggs but my wife is not a fan of the glorious runny yolk.

          Poach 'em hard then. It took me 5 years to get my wife to eat runny yolks of any kind. Even now, there are some things I make(shakshuka for example) that my wife still likes the yolks more medium to hard. No matter, they are all still good to me!

            Light chicken stock or just plain water. You should be able to find it, it's readily available

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
