Roasted Beet, Goat Cheese & Arugula Flatbread Pizza is a hearty and earthy appetizer or meal with a gourmet twist.
Happy Friday Friends!!!
Our weekends can get pretty busy with hockey practice, hockey games, birthday parties, etc, etc. But, we so look forward to the weekend and totally embrace the chaos. There’s not always enough time to cook healthy home cooked meals so I do what I can to try and come up with short cuts here and there.
This one is a beauty….. Naan Bread! It’s still fairly new to me but it is a traditional East Indian bread that is very much like a flat bread. I find it in my grocery store bakery section and I stock up on it. You can make all sorts of quick meals with it. One of my personal favourites is flatbread pizza. The kids love it with bbq sauce and cheddar cheese (This is one of my faves too). But for the adults I came up with this gourmet pizza with roasted beets, goat cheese, arugula, and a balsamic glaze.
This is so delicious you guys. Especially if you like beets, you have to try this. It looks so fancy and delicious. You’ll look like a pro!
If you have any great flatbread pizza ideas, leave it in the comment section below. I’d love to hear them.
Now I’m off to the Halloween store to buy a few accessories for the kids’ costumes. Can’t wait to reveal their costumes.
Have a great weekend friends!
Slice the beets on the thin setting on a mandolin and toss them in some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is a rich and delicious twist on your classic tomato based lasagna. Alfredo Lovers behold!
I am all about casserole type dishes. You put them together, throw them in the oven and you’ve got dinner made. These are especially handy for our super busy nights when we are running from rink to rink (like tonight). I love it because we can just reheat the meal and it tastes just as good as when you first took it out of the oven (sometimes even better).
Now, my kids are all about Alfredo sauce. Whenever we go to the Olive Garden all pasta dishes must have Alfredo sauce on them. So I came up with this recipe for Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna. I had originally planned on making just Chicken Alfredo Lasagna but I wanted to sneak some veggies in there. It worked out great. The kids devoured it and we still have some left over for lunch today. Bonus!
I made this around lunch time and then just set it aside until after we got home from hockey. It was awesome to come home to a delicious home cooked meal.
So, if you’re looking for a yummy recipe to make ahead, this one is perfect.
(I took a lot of pictures this time…just skip to the bottom for the recipe)
Bake the chicken with a dash of olive oil in a 425 degree F oven for 20 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes for tender and juicy chicken. Flip after 10 minutes.
I love the smell of fresh garlic and butter cooking
Pour your Alfredo sauce allover the chicken and shred away.
Finely chop up your broccoli so the layers fit together nicely.
Lots of cheese = extra cheesy
These Coconut Chicken Nuggets with Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce are such a huge hit with the kids
It has been so crazy around my house lately. Three of the Four kids have birthdays in the Fall so we have had birthday after birthday. Yesterday was actually my oldest boy’s birthday. We went to Applebee’s because he was requesting the triple chocolate meltdown for dessert. One of my faves.
I am also helping with managing three hockey teams. Three! I don’t know why I do this to myself. Haha. It’s so much work. With my husband coaching I guess it only makes sense. But I’ve still been cooking up a storm, I just don’t always have time to snap pictures. Half the time we are running out the door to a game while we are eating. But now that the teams are almost all set up and organized I’d like to share a bunch more recipes.
I have had a few posts in the works and I wanted to share this one with you all today. This recipe for Coconut Chicken Nuggets is scrumptious. I love them, the kids love them. Everyone’s happy. I didn’t have much time to take pictures of the process but the end result is all that really matters. And the dipping sauce is so good too! We don’t have a Chick-Fil-A where I live so the fact that I can whip up a similar sauce at home is great.
So, if you’re looking for a chicken nugget recipe with a little twist, give this one a whirl.
Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon & Sage is a perfect Fall time meal. This dish is full of flavour and is the perfect lunch or dinner.
There’s something about fall time that makes me want to cook and bake like crazy. It must be the coziness that fills the house when something is in the oven or on the stove, and the scents that fill the house when it’s cooking.
I’ve got a huge list of recipes that I want to make and I pretty much want to just put them on hold so I can do my Fall baking before Fall is over. Because you know what it’s like. Time just disappears and before you know it, it’s Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas I feel like I’m on the ball. I have a few gifts purchased….woot woot!!! So if you’re a procrastinator (I usually am), jump on the band wagon and start buying things here and there. You won’t be sorry.
For now though, back to Fall. Here’s a cozy and yummy dish using sweet potatoes…or yams…whatever the heck you call them. I never can tell the difference…ha.
This sauce is jam packed with flavour….so tasty.
Who doesn’t love bacon and sage?!?!
Sweet potatos or yams? anyone know?
Yippee, here’s my handy dandy spiralizer again. LOVE this gadget! The sweet potato noodles are so vibrant.
