Mussels in a Bread Bowl

You name it and you can most likely find it batter dipped and fried at your local fair. In my opinion, the best and most user friendly fried fair food is the corn dog.

Caesar Salad Bread Bowl

For this Caesar salad, I like to treat the bread bowl as if it was a crouton (a giant round crouton), seasoning with the same garlic flavor profile as I would a standard crouton.

A good tomato soup has always been a go to for me, both at home and in a professional capacity. Growing up tomato soup was sort of a comfort food item, a cold day offering, or as an easily prepared dish to serve when life was too busy for cooking, usually from a can… add water and serve.
