Here’s a reason for Bobby Flay fans to smile ear to ear and chin to forehead: There’ll be back to back “Throwdowns” tonight. The first one is called “Wedding Cake” and features a new Wedding Cake Designer from Brooklyn. The recipes sound like something out of one of my most delicious dreams: Cinnamon Vanilla Wedding Cake with Mexican Hot Chocolate Buttercream and Chocolate Blackout Wedding Cake with Coconut Buttercream. Are you kidding me?!
The second Throwdown is a favorite of mine (It’s a Kentucky thing, or rather thang). The episode’s titled “Breakfast” and takes place in a beautiful, off beat city we used to live in: Louisville, Kentucky. One of the recipes featured on the show is Kentucky Farmhouse Scramble. For some reason, we Kentuckians love to get all kick-y with our eggs – we’re liable to try just about anything in there!
One of my favorite ways to fix scrambled eggs is to include chopped green onions, a chopped Roma tomato, crumbled, cooked bacon, good shredded cheddar cheese, and pepper. It’s absolutely out of this world. In fact, I find myself wanting some pretty badly right about now.
Below is the Kentucky Farmouse Scramble Recipe featured on the show:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
8 ounces diced boneless country ham
1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers
12 large eggs, whisked until well blended
4 ounces grated Jarlsberg cheese (recommended: Kenny’s Country)
Salt and pepper
Heat a nonstick 12-inch saute pan over medium heat. Add butter and oil and swirl around the pan until melted. Add the country ham and saute until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Turn heat to low. Stir in roasted red peppers and beaten eggs. After the eggs begin to set, stir slowly from edge to edge with a heat-resistant rubber spatula until large curds form. This will take 5 minutes or so. When eggs are still moist and slightly runny, fold in the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.
Remove the pan from the heat and serve with fried green tomatoes and buttermilk biscuits with sorghum butter.
