This week on the #CookBlogShare round up we have five recipes that have a cured pork product as a main ingredient. Bacon, Prosciutto and spicy Chorizo all add their own unique flavours to these fabulous dishes. Plus you will find the #CookBlogShare linky for week 49.
Welcome to my penultimate #CookBlogShare of the year and once again I have had a fabulous bunch of recipes to choose from for this weeks round up. It never fails to surprise me how many amazing dishes get linked each week. We #CookBlogShare bloggers are a busy lot.
On both here on Recipes Made Easy and over at Only Crumbs Remain like many food bloggers, this time of year I have been rather busy creating and sharing new festive recipes. And in addition to these lovely pork recipes there were some delicious sweet and savoury festive recipes linked up to so do pop back and check them out if you haven't done so already.
As some of you may be aware, there are a few changes coming up. Last week Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie hosted her last #CookBlogShare and next week Monica at Everyday Healthy Recipes will be hosting her last linky. So let me take this opportunity now to say what fun it has been to share the regular hosting spots with these two fabulous blogs. Its been a privilege working with them and I will miss them.
Introducing guest hosts to this linky has been an enormous success thanks to the amazing bloggers who volunteered. So going forward #CookBlogShare will be regularly hosted by myself on the last week of each month and Lesley and Michelle at Lost in Food on the 2nd week of each month.
Having just two blogs hosting on a regular basis means we can free up even more spots for guest hosts. Thank you to everyone who has already put their name forward. If you would like to host and haven't already told me then do get in touch. Our guest hosts make #CookBlogShare one of the best food blogging communities to be in. I hope you agree.
and now to my pick of the recipes linked last week:
5 Cured Pork Recipes
Chorizo and Bean winter Stew
This flavourful stew from Lou's Kitchen Corner is the perfect winter warmer to put on the stove and let your kitchen fill with amazing spicy-earthy-warm smells.
Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Proscuitto
While I prefer English Asparagus, which only has a very short season I could be tempted to buy imported Asparagus at other times of the year to make this fabulous brunch dish from Feast Glorious Feast.
Meatloaf Wrapped in Bacon
Sometimes the tastiest dishes are not always the most photogenic. Meatloaf being a case in point. But what this dish lacks in aesthetics, it more than makes up for in flavour. With the addition of cheese and crispy bacon you can be sure this meatloaf from Foodle Club is going to be packed with flavour.
Bacon and Artichoke Quiche
This quiche is another recipe from Lou's Kitchen Corner and she describes it as "A go to recipe for busy people". Well, we all need those!
Bacon Wrapped Dates
With the party season just getting into full swing this is a great party nibble recipe to have to hand quick and easy to make Dates Wrapped in Bacon From Curly's Cooking are utterly delicious! As are prunes (devils on horseback) in my opinion
