It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page
for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day
is National Bacon Day
and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
I was making TRex steaks the other night (very good) and decided to do something different with the left over heat. [p]I split a butternut squash and tossed on some salt/pepper/EVOO. I threw some wine barrel chips on the fire and put the squash on the grid direct @ 350 for 30 minutes. The bottom started to burn so I added aluminum foil after that and cooked it until it was fork tender (another 20 minutes).[p]After that I brought it inside and ran the inside thru a blender with 2 roasted red peppers, 2 cups of milk, and 1 tsp of chipolte powder. It was quite spicy and smokey. Made about 4 cups of thick soup.[p]Yesterday I finished it with 2 pieces of bacon (julianed) and some crispy oyster crackers. [p]I'm pretty much a meat and taters kind of guy but this was very good. I guess I need to mix in a vegie every once in a while.
Who knew I had a vegetarian dish in me. [p]Doug
