RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato

INGREDIENTS/EQUIPMENT

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • ▢4 strips of bacon, chopped
  • ▢3 green onions, chopped
  • ▢3-4 tablespoons basil pesto
  • ▢dash of everything bagel seasoning
  • ▢salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pesto
  • 3 cups basil leaves
  • ▢2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • ▢2 garlic cloves
  • ▢2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ▢2/3 cup olive oil
  • ▢salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Peirce potatoes all over with a fork to puncture the skin. Microwave sweet potatoes for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. You can alternately bake sweet potatoes for 45-50 minutes at 425°F.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until nicely browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop into small bits and set aside (bacon should be crispy).
  4. Once potatoes can be easily pierced through with a fork with no resistance, slice into equal halves lengthwise. Transfer halves to a baking sheet. Using a fork, mash each potato until the flesh is soft and tender. Season each potato with a pinch of salt and pepper. Do not remove the filling from skins. Form a trench in each potato half and crack an egg into the center. It’s OK if some egg white spills over the edge. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until egg whites are no longer clear.
  5. Remove potatoes from the oven and top each with a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning, chopped bacon, green onion, and dollops of pesto. Serve immediately.
  6. For the pesto
  7. Combine all pesto ingredients except for the olive oil in a food processor or blender. Blend until mixed and smooth. With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until combined. Pesto should not be too soupy or fine. Set aside. Can be made a day in advance. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a standard blender or single-serve blender instead. Just don’t blend too aggressively or it will turn into a creamy paste. Repeatedly pulse until smooth and granular. Add more oil if too thick.
  8. I highly encourage you to make this recipe with fresh basil pesto. It’s easy to make, freezes well, and is so much more fresh and flavorful than anything you can buy in the store.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cornmeal Skillet Cake

INGREDIENTS

Rosemary Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

3 (5-inch) rosemary sprigs

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cake

1 cup all-purpose flour (about 4 1/4 ounces), sifted

½ cup fine yellow cornmeal (about 2 7/8 ounces)

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (6 1/2 ouncse), at room temperature, divided

1 ½ cups granulated sugar

3 large eggs, at room temperature

1 ½ ounce goat cheese (about 3 tablespoon), at room temperature

⅓ cup buttermilk, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

1 cup halved fresh strawberries

¾ cup diagonally sliced fresh rhubarb (1/2-inch pieces) (from about 3 ounce rhubarb stalks)

2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the rosemary whipped cream
  2. Combine heavy cream and vanilla bean paste in a small bowl. Rub rosemary sprigs between hands to release their oils, and add to bowl; stir mixture until combined. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard solids. Beat cream mixture with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 45 seconds. Cover rosemary whipped cream with plastic wrap; refrigerate until ready to use, up to 12 hours.
  3. Make the strawberry-rhubarb cake
  4. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in oven, and preheat oven to 350°F. Let skillet preheat about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, cornmeal, and salt in a small bowl until combined; set aside. Place 3/4 cup butter in bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat on high speed, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl, until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating on high speed and stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl, until mixture is light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. With mixer running on low speed, crumble in goat cheese; beat until just combined, about 30 seconds. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until just combined, about 1 minute. Add buttermilk and vanilla bean paste, beating until just combined, about 1 minute.
  6. Carefully remove hot skillet from oven, and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Swirl skillet until butter is melted. Carefully pour in cake batter; smooth top if needed. Arrange strawberries and rhubarb in an even layer on batter; sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool slightly on a wire rack, about 15 minutes. Serve cake warm with a dollop of rosemary whipped cream.

Hurricane Ian Impacts! 

Well, the weather conditions for Saturday do not look so great (but thankfully, nowhere near what passed through Florida or South Carolina).  We’re thinking of those who were (or will be) in Ian’s path. 

Meanwhile, the Market plans to be open Saturday, but will have a VERY limited vendor set-up.  So, if you can, dodge some raindrops and come show support for those vendors that are able to be there to serve you, rain or shine.  AFAC will not be collecting from the market this Saturday. Westover will be operating Sunday in case you miss tomorrow’s vendors.

We will have: Twin Springs, Hog Haven, Great Valley and Kuhn’s Orchard at the market today!

Pease follow our social media, FacebookTwitter, or Instagram, or check our website, for last-minute updates; vendor and patron safety is always paramount!  For now, we plan to be at Barrett Elementary School, on Saturday, October 1, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pick-up!  We’ll see you at the Market!! 

WE HAVE SWAG!!!
