Parmesan Chicken Sandwiches for Taste of Home Tuesday

Are you a klutz in the kitchen?  Do you have the best intentions, but then as things get underway it all goes sideways?   Even the best of us can suffer a disaster in the kitchen.   There was the time that I slaved over a double layer pineapple upside down cake and managed to flip it out of the pan and onto the floor instead of the serving plate.  Or the time that I made blackened chicken parmesan...

My husband worked 2nd shift when we were first married and wasn't a fan of leftovers or reheated food.   I used to wait up and make his dinner for him so that it was ready when he got home.    Chicken parm is hands down his favorite meal.  I'd bread and bake the chicken at a normal hour, and then about 15 minutes before he was due home, I'd pop it back in the oven with the sauce and cheese to finish.   I'd had a particularly long day at work, and didn't press the button on the timer.  

I dozed off in front of the TV, and woke an hour later to the smoke detector going off.   Turns out, my husband had been required to work overtime, and failed to call and let me know.     The end result was blackened lumps of inedible chicken and a pan that was only saved because I had lined it with foil, and him having a bowl of cereal for dinner.  Luckily, I didn't burn the house down, and after that he was a lot more receptive to eating food reheated in the microwave!

Check out this awesome recipe for Parmesan Chicken Sandwiches, which cook up in a flash and are completely delicious.  I use thin sliced chicken breast, so no pounding.   I hold the salt until after the chicken is fried. Top them with the sauce, cheese and pop them under the broiler to melt it.  Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on top and you're good to go.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
