Green Bean & Country Ham Bundles

It is a well documented fact, both here and elsewhere that I love to cook and love to try new recipes. What I have not mentioned before is that I do not reserve my experimentation for dinners that are just my husband and myself; yes, I use others as guinea pigs. I like tradition as much as the next girl, but for the holidays, when I have people over, I itch to try something (usually many somethings,) I have never made before. One of this year’s new somethings is the following recipe. It will be a new way to serve green beans and bonus; it looks pretty! I have to admit, pretty in food presentation is not my strong suit, so yay for something that looks easy to accomplish. Since I am in TN and do not have Savannah River Farms readily available, I will most likely use prosciutto in place of the country ham. Also, never fear vegetarians, a veggie option would be to tie the bundles with chives instead of the ham. Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

Burrata With Romano Beans and Roasted Eggplant

Normally, since it is mid October, I would recommend a truly fall slanted recipe, but since we are nearing the end of green beans and eggplant, I thought I would share my favorite new recipe of the summer/early fall. I made this for the first time a couple of months ago and it was a huge hit! My husband is not a big cheese fan, he can mostly take it or leave it, but burrata, he will eat anyway and ask for more. Side note: If you have never heard of or had burrata, it is a most beautiful marriage of fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheeses and is a show stopper. Sadly ALG does not have a farmer that makes it (someone get on that,) but it can be picked up at Whole Foods and Fresh Market (it is a good deal less expensive at WF.) We absolutely loved this dish and it would be the perfect thing to serve a vegetarian when you want to impress. The recipe calls for a specific green bean, but no worries, any will do and the same goes for the eggplant. My advice would be, order your veggies today and then run out and secure your burrata, so on Tuesday night you can marvel at what a genius recipe whisperer I am. 🙂
