Spar for the Spurtle 2: It's that time of year again.


It's that time of year again.  Bob's Red Mill is hosting there second annual Spar for the Spurtle contest where cooks from all over are invited to compete for the privilege to represent Bob's Red Mill at The Golden Spurtle, World Porridge Making Championship held in Scotland.  I entered last year with a wildly popular yet decadent dessert recipe, Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Porridge.

I didn't win.  But it is understandable, I did make steel cut oats unhealthy with that recipe.  Hindsight is always 20/20.

This year I entered a flavorful, savory Hors D'oeuvre.  Made with steel cut oats (soaked in almond milk), cauliflower, Jones Dairy Farm cherrywood smoked bacon, diced jalapeno, minced garlic, brown rice flour, salt, and pepper, fried in peanut oil then dipped in melted honey butter.   Great for parties!



Delicious?  Yes.

Here is a link to my video entry if you'd like to vote for me.  I'd appreciate that.

While you are there look around at some of the other delicious video entries.  I must try some of them soon, they made my mouth water.

Last years winner was Merry Graham with her recipe of Black Bean and oat burgers.  They were yummy and I still make them every now and then for dinner.

Good luck to everyone that entered!
