Farm Bread Salad In A Skillet

JD makes his own farm bread, a mild sourdough, with a hard crust and a chewy texture inside. I always imagine sitting around a French farmhouse table waiting for dinner when the aroma of his bread fills the house. Save yourself time and purchase a loaf at your local bakery and enjoy this great skillet dish!

Inspired with a classic bread salad from www.healthyseasonalrecipes.com that uses a skillet, sliced garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes and a splash of aged balsamic with fresh oregano, JD creates an exquisitely simple dinner entrée. This is a perfect way to showcase tomatoes and let your creativity sore. For extra texture and substance, JD often changes it up with the addition of pine nuts, olives, fresh mini-mozzarella balls, or crispy bacon!

Skillet Soup with Wild Mushroom & Coconut

Note: Scarlett Skillet™ warns some wild mushrooms are poisonous, and they can easily resemble edible species. Ingesting them can make you ill or kill you! It is your responsibility to identify any wild food with 100% certainty before consuming said product. Again, we assume no responsibility or liability for any ill effects that result from visitors to Scarlett Skillet™ eating wild mushrooms or plants!

In addition, allergies to mushrooms are rare, but some people do find them hard to digest. Learn more about the health-promoting properties of mushrooms at www.fungi.com.  JD finds it a great source for information about gourmet edible mushrooms, as well as dried and extracts.

Inspired by The Ardent Epicure, JD took his skillet in hand and prepared Chilled Wild Mushroom & Coconut Soup. Click here for recipe source and home to the images. The photography, alone, is appetizing, to even a non-foodie!

Many cultures have considered mushrooms the source for super-human strength and sex drive. However, the aphrodisiac properties are still being debated, but JD is my Popeye between the sheets after we enjoy this soup with a Grilled Provolone & Veggie Basil Sandwich.

Skillet Grilled Cheese with Sexy Avocado

Avocados can indeed resemble one of my favorite body parts on a man. They contain high levels of folic acid and vitamin B6 which gives JD more energy and increases his male hormone production. I, most certainly, consider it a libido food. I found this beautiful presentation at Pip & Ebby who took Martha Stewart’s suggestion to take timeless sandwiches and mature them up. This adult version for a grilled cheese sandwich is incredible. Especially when prepared in a seasoned skillet. It is a healthy assembly on so many levels.

Please visit Pip & Ebby for more information about this delicious sandwich. A simple layering of buttered-bread, provolone cheese, tomato slices, avocado slices, fresh basil, and another slice of provolone cheese topped another slice of buttered-bread. It is what I call a “KISS U” dish. Keep It Seriously Simple & Uncomplicated!

Individual, Crustless Bell Pepper Quiche

Bell Pepper Quiche in a skillet is going to become one of my favorites! This unique crustless version can consist of a variety of cheeses, meats and vegetables. The integration of ingredient elements used is limited only by your imagination. Armed with bell peppers and a custard mixture, you are ready to make individual Quiche of your choice.  JD found inspiration at www.recipeloin.com for utilizing some of the bell peppers still in the garden. [This image from Simply Gourmet Photography]

Personalized Bell Pepper Quiche

Custard Component for  2 large peppers;

A slightly rich and firmer custard, JD puts together the following;

1 Cup whipping or heavy cream

4 egg yolks

Salt, pepper, cayenne and nutmeg to taste

Set aside

Pepper Component;

2 large bell peppers cut in half and cleaned. Any color will be fine. Fill with your ingredient elements, diced or shredded, until each pepper half is ¾ full. JD uses Gruyère cheese, Vidalia onions, mushrooms and fresh spinach for a vegetarian style.

Arrange your bell pepper halves next to each other in a cast-iron skillet. Gently pour the custard mixture into each pepper half until full. Sprinkle with a bread crumb and butter mixture if you like. We do not like the additional calories, however.  Place filled peppers inside skillet in oven, and bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the centers are firm.

Thank you for your company! Enjoy!

Skillet Pork Loins with Apple & Spinach Salad with Wicked Carmel-Mustard Vinaigrette

Skillet Peaches, Basil, Pistachios & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Appetizers, Breakfast, Desserts, Lunch, Soups, Suppers, and more in a Skillet!  Again, one of the essential elements in any kitchen is a cast-iron skillet, preferably scarlet colored on the bottom!!!

An excerpt taken from a previous blog at Scarlett Skillet, A Pinch of Shock Value with Warm Peaches & Basil/Warm Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream, this sweet, fragrant stone fruit dessert is easy to prepare.

Warm Peaches with Your Imagination or Basil, Pistachios

Place cast-iron skillet over a medium heat source. Melt 1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter [per peach used], stir in 1 teaspoon of brown sugar [per peach used], add sliced fresh peaches, and Julienne cut fresh basil leaves to taste. [Serving 2: 2 Peaches, 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter, 2 teaspoons of brown sugar] Stir until peach slices are warm and basil aromatics are present. Remove from heat. Serve over your favorite, gourmet, vanilla ice cream, sparsely drizzle with Balsamic Syrup, and sprinkle some chopped pistachios to add a delicate crunch!

Just another culinary guideline for the pronounced flexibility of a scarlet skillet. Perhaps you are a Martha Stewart enthusiast, or an upcoming Food Network star,  even perhaps one of Oprah’s new chef finds, or a feature writer for Epicurious, I cannot emphasis enough for you to engage your creative abilities to come up with your personal version. Now that the Olympic’s are finished, it is time to experiment for the upcoming Fall holidays. Practice now!

Scarlett Skillet’s DYK: Did You Know that the peach is the state fruit of Georgia and South Carolina. It is also the state
flower of Delaware. I personally favor a South Carolina peach.

Skillet Glazed Corn with Ginger, Lime and Coconut

Appetizers, Breakfast, Desserts, Lunch, Soups, Suppers, and more in a Skillet!  One of the essential elements in any kitchen is a cast-iron skillet, preferably scarlet colored on the bottom!!! Sharing dishes that are created in a skillet is the premise for this blog.

Although, I am a Inspirationalist, I too, come across inspiration. I was motivated when I landed on www.carascravings.com. What a unique way to prepare a summer favorite. And it can be done outside on the grill! Perfect! Click recipe title for recipe!

Skillet Glazed Corn with Ginger, Lime and Coconut

Skillet Corn from Cara's Cravings

Scarlett Skillet DYK: Did You Know that fresh corn on the cob will lose up to 40% of its sugar content after 6 hours at room temperature storage. The sugar is converted to starch!

Whether you consider yourself a Martha Stewart enthusiast, have a private chef like Oprah, or wanting too be featured on Food Network, I strongly suggest letting your creative side come alive with various alternations to this concept of corn in a skillet.
