Mr. Sideline Chef was the inspiration behind the theme for the Battle. He had requested that I try my hand at Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage Kolaches. I figured his request for a meat filled pocket would make for a perfect challenge. I wanted to select a winning entry based off of his taste preferences and something that he would love.
Our original idea was to make our favorite entry and then blog about it today but our laptop crashed and now I am writing this post on a brand new laptop. Thank you Mr. Sideline Chef for saving the day. I have been without Internet for two days and didn't realize what a lifeline having it is. How does one get through a day without it? Since we had no Internet I ran out of time and couldn't get to the winning recipe to make a grocery list and print off the recipe. Such is life.
We have no doubt that the winning recipe would be delicious. The photos are incredible!
The winner of the Culinary Smackdown Battle - Hand Held Meat "Pies" and a $10.00 gift card to Barnes and Noble is Amy with her recipe for Prosciutto di Parma with Smoked Gouda Crescent. Please email me your full name and address so I can get you your gift card!
Looking forward to what you'll come up with for the month of March! Copy and paste the badge and have fun with it! Thank you all once again!
