While we love to cook up (and eat) our in-house Southern Kitchen recipes, we still spend plenty of time reading recipes from bloggers and other food websites. Every Friday, we'll round up some of our favorites so that you'll have plenty of fodder for your weekend kitchen experiments.
Our favorite recipes this week include a creative twist on carbonara, mini Mason jar apple pies, breakfast sliders and pumpkin soup with creole lobster. It's time to get cooking.
This take on a breakfast sandwich comes from Tasty. Instead of bagels or croissants, this sandwich uses Hawaiian sweet rolls to create a quick breakfast option. While they recommend ham, cheddar, bacon and eggs, feel free to experiment with the sliders if you would rather have sausage and Swiss on it.
Pumpkin soup with Creole lobster
This pumpkin soup from Food & Wine is the perfect cure for a cold winter day. The special ingredient that sets this pumpkin soup apart from others is a lobster that has bathed in spicy butter. The soup takes on a deep, earthy flavor from the brininess the lobster notes Food & Wine. Feel free to indulge in this warm soup throughout the holiday season.
Bucatini with lemony carbonara
Brighten up your winter menu with this lemony take on classic carbonara from Bon Appetit. This dish contains the classic components of carbonara (bacon, Parmesan, egg yolks), but adds in fresh lemon juice and lemon zest that is the “perfect foil for the carbonara’s salty richness.”
Mini Mason jar Apple Pies
These mini apple pies from PureWow are almost too cute to eat. Instead of one pie, the Mason jars offer individual portions of warm apple goodness for guests to enjoy. Add this dessert to your Thanksgiving menu and we promise we won’t tell if you steal one or two from the dessert table.
