MAKE BRUSSELS THE BEST PART OF THE MEAL WITH BACON BRUSSELS GRATIN
Brussels Sprouts are one of our favorite veggies, in spite of the fact that they don’t have the best reputation. We typically chalk up people’s distaste for the green veggie to not knowing just how delicious it can be – roasting is basically the only way to go – and therefore not realizing how great it is, and we try to do our parts to show everyone what a great ingredient it is. Here, we took some lightly roasted Brussels (gotta get a little color on them) and then made a creamy, cheesy, flavorful gratin to showcase them and make everyone fall in love with them…you need to try this!
The key here is roasting your sprouts ahead of time. Not only does this ensure that your veggies will be perfectly tender by the time they’re cooked in the gratin and come out of the oven, but roasting them gives an amazing flavor that takes everything up a notch. Add to that the crumbled bacon, cheese, and rosemary, and you’ve got yourself a side dish that’ll steal the show. At least that’s what happened at our dinner!

Have you ever had avocado bread? This bread is made with buttery avocado goodness and chocolate. This is a great combination because the avocado adds healthy fats and nutrients to this dessert, while the chocolate hides the flavor of the avocado. You are then left with a chocolaty tasting bread that is soft and moist.

You NEED to know how to make Melting Potatoes
SERVES: 4 SERVINGS
2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1 c. low-sodium chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Cut potatoes into ¾”-1” thick slices, and place the slices in a medium bowl. Pour in the olive oil, melted butter, and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and toss until evenly combined.
Lay the potatoes flat, in a single layer, on a 9”x13” metal baking dish, using two dishes if necessary. (Do not use a glass baking dish, as pouring the chicken broth into the hot pan could resulting in the glass cracking.) Bake until the bottom of each potato is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven and flip each potato. Bake for another 15 minutes, until the other side of the potato, is golden brown.
Remove dish from oven, pour in chicken broth and sprinkle with garlic. Return to oven to bake until the potatoes are tender and the stock reduces slightly, about another 15 minutes.

Pumpkin spice pancakes with caramel and pecan sauce from the Breakfast Bistro- Thank you!
The fall season joke is always about how pumpkin spice is overused in baking, unfortunately, with Celiac Disease you don’t get to experience it as much. You don’t realize how much you miss it until you can’t have it. Terrific if you have a sweet tooth because these pumpkin spice pancakes are covered in a caramel drizzle sauce and sprinkled with pecans.
It’s not very often we get seasonal breakfast food so definitely suggest these pancakes!
