Steel cut oats, ground beef, and ground pork are cooked until thick and soft, chilled until firm, and fried like bacon!
This popular dish originated around Monterey Bay, California. This version, created in San Diego, has a southwest flavor. Serve with large bibs, crab shell crackers, extra bowls for the shells, and finger bowls if you wish. Nice served in large, shallow bowls alongside crusty sourdough bread, a green salad, and chilled white wine. You can vary the seafood according to the catch of the day, yours or your market’s.
I tried finding a recipe to get my picky toddler to eat her vegetables. Since I couldn’t find a healthy one, I came up with this. Using one cup carrots and one cup zucchini is a nice way to get both the yellow and green veggies into the diet! Any type of nuts, raisins, etc. may be used in the recipe — whatever is on hand and toddler approved.
