Easy Cinnamon Rolls with Sweet Potato Filling


Description

Easy cinnamon rolls filled with sweet potato and topped with brown butter glaze. This recipe is made with store-bought ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (12.4 ounce) cans cinnamon rolls
  • sweet potato filling
  • 1/2 cup pecans, optional, finely chopped

For the Brown Butter Glaze

  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 8 tbsp cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp milk

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Generously coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with melted butter.

Roll out cinnamon rolls and cut into strips.

Add sweet potato filling and roll, and place in greased baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

Pour egg mixture over the contents of the dish to make sure you dampen any dry pieces.

Sprinkle the pecans evenly over the dish.

Bake until light golden brown, about 18-25 minutes. The type of cinnamon rolls you use might vary cook time so watch carefully! You will also want to check a middle piece to ensure the dough is fully cooked.

Remove the baking dish from the oven.

Pour the warm glaze evenly over cinnamon roll pieces.

Serve immediately.

 

For Glaze

Heat butter in a small saucepan on medium-low until it turns a nutty brown, about 6- 8 minutes. Cool slightly.

Place cream cheese in a medium bowl. Using a whisk, mix in powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth.

Whisk in browned butter slowly. Add milk until smooth.

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

This Sweet Potato Casserole is creamy and topped with a brown sugar pecan crust, just like at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

sweet potato casserole

One of our family favorites, sweet potato casserole, is often served at Thanksgiving dinner— and is as important as the ham and cornbread dressing. The secret is baking the sweet potatoes; that way, they retain more flavor.

The sweet potatoes are mashed with butter, brown and white sugar, milk, eggs, and spices. Then the mixture is topped with a crunchy pecan crust and marshmallows for the perfect blend of flavors and textures.

SHOP MY FAVORITE OVENWARE

If you have to pick sides, I’d suggest this Sweet Potato Casserole! It’s a great compliment to the traditional Thanksgiving turkey or ham and can be served at room temperature. The brown sugar pecan topping gives this dish an added touch of elegance. I’m bringing it to my family gathering this year and can just see the smiles on everyone’s faces when the smell hits the air.

34 medium sweet potatoes, baked

1/4 c condensed milk

1/4 c evaporated milk

1 c white sugar

1/4 c brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/2 c brown sugar, packed

1 c pecans, chopped

1 c marshmallows


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a baking dish.

Peel baked potatoes and place in mixer.

Mix together the sweet potato, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, spices, and eggs.

Stir in the pecans and marshmallows.  Spread the mixture over the top of the sweet potatoes in an even layer. Bake until mostly set in the center and golden on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot.

Notes

You can boil the sweet potatoes also; baking preserves more flavor.

Creamy White Bean and Sausage Soup


Description

Hearty White Bean and Sausage Soup is a flavor-packed creamy soup filled with veggies, cajun sausage, and tender white beans.


Ingredients

Scale

1½ cups dried white beans

2 c vegetable stock, unsalted 

2 cups water

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

¼ tsp crushed red pepper

1 yellow onion, diced

3 stalks of celery, chopped

½ tsp minced garlic 

16 oz smoked sausage, diced

¼ cup olive oil

Parsley, for topping


Instructions

Place beans in a medium bowl and cover with cold water; let stand overnight. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Place the beans in a  pot and cover with water and stock; simmer, covered, for 50 minutes or until tender. 

Blend beans and reserved cooking liquid until smooth.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a saucepan; stir in onion and celery. Cook until the onion is tender and translucent. Add in garlic and cook for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the saucepan. Set aside.

Add sausage to the same saucepan; cook until crispy on both sides. Drain and remove from the pan. Set aside.

Once the beans are tender, stir in the onion, celery, and garlic. 

Remove 2 cups of the bean mixture from the pot and place in a blender. Remove the center cap from the blender and cover it with a paper towel. Blend until smooth.

Pour the blended mixture into the remaining beans in the pot and stir. If you prefer to blend the complete mixture, add it all to the blender.

Remove from heat and add in your sausage and serve.

Add toppings of your choice. I added in a little truffle oil and fresh parsley and served it with honey cornbread.

Enjoy!

Notes

If you don’t have time to let beans soak, you can use canned beans, rinsed and drained. Only cook for 20 minutes.

Baking a Cardamom Apple Pie For The Holidays

Baking a Cardamom Apple Pie For The Holidays

What better way to celebrate the holiday season with friends and family than with a delicious slice of pie? This Cardamom Apple Pie is sure to be a hit.

It’s so simple, fresh, and flavorful. Whenever I’m hosting, I like to prepare pies early in the day so they have ample time to cool before we’re ready to eat. It’s also a great way to make your home smell wonderful. To me, life doesn’t get much better than a relaxing conversation over a slice of pie.

apple pie

The best part of this recipe is using the apple peeler. I was able to get my apples peeled, cored, and sliced in less than 10 minutes. So as I told you, this recipe is sooooo easy and delicious.

The world’s best apple peeler and slicer!

The combination of apples, nutmeg, and cardamom in this pie is amazing. The apples in this recipe are thinly sliced, and you can use any type of apple you’d like, but I prefer something on the sweeter side with a crisp texture. My favorite types of apples for baking are Honey Crisp or Granny Smith apples. The cardamom adds an aromatic, warm flavor to this pie. If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute ground cinnamon instead.

I used homemade pie crust, but you could easily use store-bought. This recipe is so easy and delicious that I think you’ll want to make it again and again!

It’s important to balance out the unhealthy indulgences of the holiday season and take a moment to appreciate the simple things in life. By treating ourselves to healthy and delicious baked goods made by hand, not only are we relaxing and enjoying our free time, we’re also learning how to make traditionally great dishes that our loved ones might otherwise never get to experience. This is a recipe I think is well worth trying out.

For all the apple pie lovers out there this holiday season, we hope that you have a wonderful time together with family and friends. Let us know if you enjoyed it in the comments below!

Apple Cardamom Pie


  • Author: Belle Omniley
  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x

Description

A mixture of tart apples and brown sugar marmalade seasoned with nutmeg and cardamom and piled high. Topped with a buttery, flaky top crust and baked until golden brown.


Ingredients

Scale

6-7 medium honey crisp apples, sliced and halved

8 Tbsp butter, unsalted

3 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1/4 c water

1 c light brown sugar, packed

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

2 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp grated lemon zest

2 deep dish pie crusts, store-bought or homemade

1 egg +1 Tbsp water for eggwash


Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Whisk in flour for approximately 1 minute; next, add your water and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and return to simmer for 2-3 minutes. Set aside.

Slice apples approximately 1/8″ thick on a slicer and cut them in half. Set aside.

Prepare your pie crust in your pie pan.

Next, coat apples with nutmeg, cardamom, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix well. Add in your marmalade and stir again.

Pour mixture into prepared pie crust.

Layer your apples with cutouts, lattice, or another pie crust. Cut slits for venting.

Place in the oven with a pan or aluminum foil beneath the pie to catch drippings. Cook at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 40 minutes. Oven temperatures vary, so check after 1 hour of cooking. Pie is done when the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling through vent holes.

Better Than Honey Baked Ham | Brown Bag Ham

Better Than Honey Baked Ham | Brown Bag Ham

What could be better than Honey Baked Ham? Well, some say there is no substitute for HoneyBaked ham, but this pineapple brown sugar ham recipe will leave you more than satisfied.

If you want to prepare an amazing and unforgettable holiday dish that is fast, easy, and sooooo delicious, this pineapple brown sugar ham is definitely a recipe you need. I am sure you will love it!

honey baked ham

 This pineapple brown sugar ham will be gone before you know it!

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and I usually cook it at least once a year, for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.

WHAT’S THE TRICK TO THIS HONEY-BAKED HAM DUPE???

What’s the trick, or what makes this recipe different? A brown paper bag! It’s true! The bag not only helps with flavoring it also pulls the extra sodium out of the ham, so you don’t have a “salty pig.”

Where do you get a brown bag? Most of your grocery stores always ask “paper or plastic” right? just ask the cashier for an extra unused bag!

The brown sugar and pineapple juices caramelize on the outside of the ham, creating a delicious crispy crust. This is one of those super easy recipes that are so good you’ll want to make it again and again. The ham will be tender and juicy, and it has a delicious brown sugar crust on the outside. You can serve this with pineapple rings or slices, but I like to serve it with some pineapple sauce for extra flavor.

This is a great recipe to make if you’re hosting a large crowd at your home, especially for the holidays. It’s easy to make and has very few ingredients. I would recommend using a spiral-cut ham, but you can use any kind of ham that you like.

Ahh, the classic holiday ham. A delicious addition to your family’s Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.

This pairs well with our CORNBREAD DRESSING! CHECK IT OUT.
