Ok… White Bean and Bacon Soup Shots… gotta try…

March 1, 2015

So it’s been a while, but I’m back…    this party, which was actually last year (December), still has some humph in the memory menu…  As promised…

White Bean and Bacon Soup Shots..  ala  Ted Allen, but hiked up by Apply Heat and Eat… Mark Musante…facebookpic1

Please check out Ted Allen’s Recipe…  the thing is, I had to figure out how to make it for a party of 120, instead of 8 or so…

I like bacon…   so I did a whole pound and a half of lardons ( 1/4 inch bits)… instead of just one slice…

I used the bits partially for the soup, (dropped them in) and partially for the garnish…  a tasty tid bit that Ted missed…  when the shot glasses were full, I decided to drop in a few bacon bits along with the goat-cheese croutons…   It worked…   GOOD…

Bottom line…   this app was the best seller at the party that night…  PERIOD.smcha6singleshot

Ok…  I did more bacon so I could have the garnish, but more importantly, so I could have enough fat to saute the rest of the ingredients…

Making soup  101…   cook it, splash it…  boil it…  season it… eat it…

Cook and splash means  –  saute your onion, mushroom, celery, carrot, or what ever other veggie you might want to have star in your concoction…  Basically start with the veggies…

Make sure that when the time comes to add the Stock, that it’s trustworthy…  (make your own)  [see make your own stock]

So, if you went to the link, you saw the recipe…  I added more bacon, used rye for the croutons, I think I added a bit more cumin, and a little tabasco…  Blend, strain, pour into shot glasses, drop a bit of bacon and the cheesy crouton…  OH  MY  GOD !!!

The point…  please don’t be worried about shifting or changing or altering someone elses vibe…   it’s your party…   they (I) are putting this out there for you…  Have Fun…   Relax…  Heat it up and eat it up !!!    Simply Apply Heat… and Eat…   SWEET

Until next time,…                            Happy Heating !!!

    Genius idea to use the shot glasses for presentation! Not only does it look great, it’s also the perfect way to offer up soup as an app when you are in party mode!
