Stir up your dinner by serving these scrumptious Roasted Garlic Dinner Muffins. Soft, savory muffins made with roasted garlic, they would make a wonderful side dish to your dinner.
I got some exciting news to share!
There is a new foodie show that will be premiering tomorrow on TNT! I love cooking shows. (Of course I do, look at what I do!)
I am so excited to check out On the Menu tomorrow, October 3rd, at 8/7c, on TNT. First of all, the show features Chef Emeril Lagasse and hosted by Ty Pennington. I love Emeril Lagasse, he is definitely one of my favorite chefs to follow and watch. I love his recipes and he is so entertaining. If he is on the show, I know it will not disappoint.
Don’t laugh at me, but I’m a geek when it comes to celerity chefs. I get all giggly and happy when one of them follows me on my social media. Chef Emeril Lagasse was actually the first celebrity chef to follow me on my Pinterst and I’m glad that noone was around to witness my reaction when I saw it. Let’s just say there was some happy squealing and dancing going on…you know, all that embarrassing stuff.
Anyway, the show sounds like a very interesting premise. Contestants will compete to create the next dish to appear on the menu of well-known restaurants. With high anxiety and stiff competition, competitors will duke it out with the guidance of Emeril Lagasse as their seasoned industry insider and Ty Pennington as their confidant and sounding board. Competitors go beyond their home cooking passion and are challenged to create dishes that are not only delicious, but fit the selected restaurants current menu offerings. Viewers at home will get to watch the creation of the winning dish from conception to execution, and then the winning item will be on the menu. Unlike other cooking competition shows-you can ACTUALLY go try the winning dish, in store, the very next day. The first three weeks of the show airing, the viewer can download a special offer for the first three restaurants (Chilis, Dennys, California pizza kitchen) to try the dish! How cool is that?!
I find that premise for the show so exciting. I totally want to do it and I am not going to wait! I played a little in my own kitchen and I won!! Shhh, it doesn’t matter that I didn’t actually have any competition, I did in my head.
I created something fun for dinner. I came up with a new dinner bread idea that will knock your socks off! Its savory muffins that are made with roasted garlic. The flavor, the texture and aroma is so amazing, you will love the bread more than dinner.
The second I bit into one of these muffins, I said “Oh, my gosh, Stinky Rose should serve it in their restaurant!” These muffins are perfect for a unique restaurant like Stinky Rose. If you are not familiar, they are located in San Francisco and they definitely share my love for garlic. In their decor and on their menu, garlic is a heavy feature. Precisely why these muffins would be perfect there.
