Food for the soul: Bacon-corn

Hey lovelies! The other day, a couple of my friends and I, was in this restaurant in Aarhus, Denmark (where I live). It’s called Memphis Roadhouse, and is a BBQ all in American 🙂 And one of the side dishes, was corn, bacon and butter mixed in all together and heated. It was sooooo good!! Okay, maybe not in track with clean eating, but with a bit of good will, it would fall right into the LCHF-lifestyle, right? 😉

  • 4 ears corn, cleaned

The art of bruschetta

Hey lovelies

So the art of bruschetta, bruschetta can be many things. You can use tomatoes – the classic way, mushrooms w. cream. The options are endless!

One of my faves are the classic, with an onion, two tomatoes, a bit of garlic, salt pepper, and a bit of olive-oil. Toss it on a bread, and in the oven for 10 min.
If you have the time, and the courage then brown some butter, and the bread on a pan first, let it soak the butter, and brown a bit. Then add the tomatoes and in the oven for 6-7 min.

My ultimate go-to bruschetta, is super versatile, and can be used as pasta-sauce too.

  • Mushrooms (fresh mushrooms, and a whole lot of it ;))
  • Red-onions
  • Garlic
  • Cream
  • Port-wine
  • (maybe some parmesan cheese)

In a big pan you let the garlic and onion become glasslike, then you add the chopped-up mushrooms. Let the mushrooms brown, if they are too crowded they will shred water…
Then you add the cream, bring it to a small boil, and pour in three tablespoons of port-wine. Let everything simmer for 15-20 min. or until you have the texture you’d like.
It should be very creamy. Add salt and pepper – remember to taste!!! put it on bread, shred a bit of parmesan cheese over it, and in the oven it goes, for 10 min. or till the cheese is melted. 41b391ff2cbb5f65725114eede043ee7 b9f76f4020e320e96c0e051d02f519e8
