Ok, maybe not exactly fries.
After reading Beth’s post earlier this morning about sweet potatoes, I knew exactly what I wanted for lunch today. I also have a TON of these orange fellas in my kitchen, just waiting to be sliced and diced and baked.
I set the oven on about 375, sprayed a pan lined with foil, and lined these guys up for a trip to the oven. I turned them after several minutes. After I initially plated them, I noticed they were a little soft, so I left the rest of them in the hot oven as it was cooling down and just took them to work. They were a little crispy and totally delicious!
While they were baking, though, I got to work on the rest of my lunch. I bought some pumpernickel bread at Publix these week, and I have been dying to make a grilled cheese with it. So I did!
Winnie the Pooh and a grilled cheese, too! I used half a slice of Muenster cheese, and I drizzled honey on top. Sounds weird, but it was amazing! I love this bread. It reminds me of pickles. Maybe it’s the word pumpernickel? Maybe it’s salty? Who knows.
Fun Fact: In college, my roommate and I once bought a loaf of bread labeled, “PUMPERNICKEL PARTY LOAF.” Ever since then, I’ve always thought of pumpernickel as the shelf life of the party.
I grilled this in about a teaspoon of real butter. I considered eating it with some preserves (also a good combination) but decided against it.
My lunch was boss.
What’s one of the oddest combinations you’ve eaten? Does the word pumpernickel make you smile?
