THE WINNER: First of all I am behind in announcing the winner of the Jewel Tone Measuring cups. The Winner is Jennifer Herring! Yay! Congrats Jennifer, I will be in touch with you to get your snail mail addy to get these purty things off to you! I learned a few things after this first give-away. First of all people love free stuff! I had more hits than I’ve ever had while running this contest. Second, measuring cups are a little boring. lol. Out of all the visits, not many people commented to participate. And that’s ok! I know that a single set of measuring cups isn’t very sexy. So this little trial lets me know that people ARE out there reading and they want bigger and more excited prizes! Not to worry. I knew it would most likely go that way. I wanted to start off small to see what the turn out would be. Soooooo, more exciting giveaways coming soon! 😉
Now for today’s recipe.Today’s recipe is easy!!! Have you noticed I like easy yet? 😉 I must confess, I am running out of food in the house. We are going out of town this weekend and so I have put off grocery shopping and doing my best to scrounge up meals with whatever is left in the house. Lunches are the hardest for me. I’m not sure why. I guess I tend to lean toward lunches that don’t take much time or ingredients to prepare. And its getting Booooooring! I was soooo craving something that took more than two ingredients today. So I scrounged around in my fridge and found a lone can of croissants. This peaked my interest. I then found the remains of a bag of frozen broccoli. My tongue started to tingle! Oh whats that? Cheese? alright! We’ve got ourselves a meal! Lets go!
So I made Broccoli cheese garlic croissants. I don’t claim to be the first to ever try this, just think of it as a nifty reminder if you ever get the hankering for “complicated flavor but super easy to cook” !
let us begin……
First I steamed my broccoli in the microwave.
open a can of croissants and pull apart the pieces. Lay out one piece on a plate
Spoon some of your cooked broccoli onto the croissant at the widest point
sprinkle on some cheese. Here I used a mixed blend
Go on, really dump it on 😉
Now at the widest end start to roll it all up. because of the heat of the cooked broccoli, the pastry will be soft and pliable and easier to pull over the broccoli
Place in a greased baking dish
Repeat process until all pastries are used. Now I almost stopped here, but I got to thinking, this needs something…
so melt you some butter and brush it all over the tops of each pastry
Now lightly sprinkle some garlic powder across the tops. Trust me!
Pop them in the oven for about 10 min at 350, until they are golden brown…..
LIKE THIS. oooohhh let me tell you the warm garlic butter smell alone is enough to make your mouth water. Not only did the garlic add so much to the taste, but it also provides a purty golden brown color on top. These would be great as hor’ derv’s for parties, as appetisers, or even a meal! (like I did 🙂 )
Now eat and enjoy!! I can not tell you how this deliciousness brought me to my knees today! It’s that mmmmm mmmmm GOOD! light, flaky, buttery cheesy, oooooooh!
Hope you will try it!
