Lovely Leftovers

    Newer Older

    I was sent home from a Thanksgiving Family dinner to which we were
    invited as friends, with a bag of leftover swiss chard that had been
    braised with pine-nuts and spicy chipotle. I figured it would be a
    great filling for an omelette the next day for brunch. I decided to
    have fun and experiment with fancy presentation. I cut 6 disks from
    the bread I had bought with the intention of making a
    turkey-accompanying 'bread sauce' (very British). I didn't get round
    to making the sauce, so the bread was left over too. I lightly toasted
    the disks. I cut 4 of the same-sized circles from the swiss chard
    omelette and sandwiched them together with crispy fried strips of
    bacon. I topped each little tower with grated gruyere and then grilled
    until bubbling. How cute-looking is that? It tasted pretty good too!

      It was pretty good - a pleasant way to eat the dark greens!

      Hi Sam

      I really love this photograph. I work for a local council in Surrey, UK and I'm organising a Food Festival. Would it be possible to use you're photograph on the front cover of the event brochure? Of course, I'd be happy to credit the photograph to you and abide by any other conditions you may have.

      Look forward to hearing from you.
