Breakfast for Dinner

Growing up I loved the surprise of having breakfast for dinner. Now, I think of the breakfast for dinner option as a quick fix meal. This sandwich is really just a riff on a the flavors of a Croque Monsieur (eggs and cheese) and a Monte Cristo (turkey and the sweet from maple syrup), it is really neither of the two, but the sandwich tastes great. Substitute ham for the turkey, use your favorite cheese, and you can substitute any soft white bread for the croissant, although you lose the buttery edge. The EDOD team and I had fun filming this video as the “last shot of the day” and you can see I am a little sassy about the maple syrup at the end. It’s the kind of dinner you can put together with ingredients hanging around in the refrigerator, and have a little fun.

Chicken with Lemon and Basil Cream Sauce

This chicken dish hails from when I was working as a personal chef. The sauce was stored separate from the chicken in the refrigerator and clients could simply arrive home, warm the chicken and the sauce then dress with the fresh basil and lemon zest right before serving. I also found that the dish was one that froze well, and I would package single serving portions that could be pulled from the freezer when needed. I recommend that entrées stored in the freezer be used within 1 to 2 weeks for best results.
