Every year about this time my thoughts turn to Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. Thoughts of these lovely aromatic herbs always make me think of the old Simon and Garfunkel version of the song "Scarborough Fair". This song has always sounded somewhat haunting to me. I'm not even sure that haunting is the word I'm looking for. I found this Carly Simon version of the song and I really enjoyed her take on it. I hope you will as well!
What time is it now? Why it's CrAzY CuPcAkE time!
This time we're trying:
1 tsp rubbed sage
1 tsp minced dry onion
1 medium apple, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp salt
pinch of nutmeg
While the "Cupcakes" are baking, prepare the sweet potatoes.
You will need:
2 large sweet potatoes, cut into chunks and cooked until tender
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp (or more) low fat buttermilk
Salt and pepper
Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whip until smooth and creamy.
Pull the cupcakes out of the oven and crank it up to 400 degrees. Place a generous scoop of taters on top and sprinkle with panko and herb topping (1 1/2 tbsp of melted butter, 1/2 cup panko, 1/2 tsp rubbed sage, 1/2 tsp thyme).
Place back into the oven for 5-6 minutes until breadcrumbs are nicely browned.
That's all there is to it really. These are super tasty! I really dug the apple and sage with the chicken. Super flavor!
I hope you all will join me for my CrAzY cUpCaKe Challenge!! Make it sweet or make it savory but just be sure to make it crazy! You have until November 19th to send in your recipes.
