Cook bacon until almost fully crisp and drain. Cut into slices to cover the clams. 

Reserve 1 TBL bacon drippings.

Preheat oven to 425.

In a different pan, over medium heat, melt butter and drippings, and add garlic, shallots, scallions, parsley, and a splash of white wine and cook until soft – about 5 minutes. 

Add red pepper flakes and remove from heat.

To assemble, pour some of the butter mixture over the clam, add bread crumb, and top with bacon. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until the bacon and bread crumbs are browned . Serve with lemon.

Pesto and Roasted Red Pepper Brie

o 1⁄2 cup fruity olive oil – Sicilian or Ligurian

o 1 tsp salt

o 1/3 cup pecorino

Soak basil leaves for 15 minutes in cold water to remove bitterness

In food processor, combine nuts, garlic and cover with oil. Puree until 

creamy and add salt

Add the basil in small batches, and puree in short pulses to combine, 

not overblend

Add cheeses in the same fashion

• 3 tablespoons roasted sweet red pepper, chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. 

Slice an 8 oz. round of brie in half horizontally, making 2 equal layers. Spread pesto on bottom layer, spread peppers over the pesto, and cover with the top layer of brie. 

Bake on an oven-proof plate until softened and warm (10 - 12 minutes). Serve warm, with crackers, bread, or fruit.

Filet Mignon Crostini

Indredients

  • Filet of Beef – 1.5 lbs works well
  • EVOO
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 loaf Italian bread, sliced
  • 2 large sweet onions – Sliced
  • 1 stick Butter
  • Crumbled Blue Cheese

Directions

Put butter and onion slices in a large pan, and caramelize on low heat for about 30 minutes. Resist the temptation to stir them! Just flip them once or twice in the process 

Drizzle Filet with olive oil, season with salt and pepper.

Sear on a grill or grill pan 2-3 minutes on each side or to your desired doneness (Tip – you can re-grill after slicing for those who like it more well done).

Let the meat rest for 5 minutes, and then slice on an angle in very thin slices.

On another grill pan, grill the bread on both sides until slightly charred. This works well with the sweetness of the onions.

Top each slice of bread with filet, onion and bleu cheese
