Breakfast Pizza!

Since I had so much dough leftover from our pizza party Saturday night, it was inevitable that I would make breakfast pizza again!  This time: 3 oz. dough, 1/4 cup sauce, 1 ounce mozzarella, handful of baby spinach and 1/4 cup egg whites poured over the top.  You can taste the egg whites even if you can’t see them – it kind of blends into the cheese!

When I saw Beth@990′s spicy green beans with tofu, I knew I would be making that soon!   I just made 1/4 of her recipe for my lunch.  I didn’t think that would be filling enough, so I made pork potstickers on the side :D

4 ounces of fresh green beans

2 ounces of tofu

hot paprika, cumin, coriander, cury powder, salt and crushed red pepper

I deviated slightly from her recipe – I left out the onions and raisins!  :D

I made Alton Brown’s pot sticker recipe, but added 2 teaspoons of my spicy peanut butter!

Ingredients (printer friendly version)

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions (left out – but subbed in 1 cup of shredded cabbage)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Peanut Butter & Co. Spicy Peanut Butter
  • 35 to 40 small wonton wrappers
  • Water, for sealing wontons
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 1/3 cups chicken stock, divided

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

Combine the first 11 ingredients in a medium-size mixing bowl (pork through cayenne). Set aside.

To form the dumplings, remove 1 wonton wrapper from the package, covering the others with a damp cloth. Brush 2 of the edges of the wrapper lightly with water. Place 1/2 rounded teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper. Fold over, seal edges, and shape as desired. Set on a sheet pan and cover with a damp cloth. Repeat procedure until all of the filling is gone.

Heat a 12-inch saute pan over medium heat. Brush with vegetable oil once hot. Add 8 to 10 potstickers at a time to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, without touching. Once the 2 minutes are up, gently add 1/3 cup chicken stock to the pan, turn the heat down to low, cover, and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove wontons to a heatproof platter and place in the warm oven. Clean the pan in between batches by pouring in water and allowing the pan to deglaze. Repeat until all the wontons are cooked. Serve immediately.

I am submitting this recipe to the Great Peanut Butter Exhibition Recipe Contest.  Thanks Mara for posting  this!

the spicy peanut butter gave the pot stickers a nice kick!

a heaping teaspoon went into each wonton wrapper

fried in a touch of oil for a crispy bottom

here's how they look after being steamed

I had the spicy green beans with five pot stickers.  I drizzled the pot stickers with House of Tsang Szechwan sauce – only 25 calories a tablespoon – and a touch of sweet and sour sauce.  This was such a filling lunch!

Whenever my store sells chicken wings for .79 cents a pound, I cannot pass that up!  And what better way to serve them but fried! :D  I used this recipe for the chicken.   I don’t know what it is, but whenever I soak chicken in buttermilk, it is so tender!

I put this together yesterday morning, so it soaked about 9 hours

then mixed up the seasoned flour

I’ve discovered that if you let the chicken sit for at least 5 minutes after you coat the chicken, it stays on better.

My plate: (I only ate one wing), 1 cup mashed potatoes with gravy and 1/2 cup green beans on the side.

Dinner: 428 caloires, 38 carbs, 22 protein 21 fat and 6.5 fiber

I got mail! Thanks to Jen at Prior Fat Girl – I won new kicks!

New Balance! These fit like a glove!

I decided these are going to be my new “gym” workout shoes – I won’t use them outside.  I wore them while I was making dinner and it was like I wasn’t wearing shoes at all – and these retail for $65!! :D  Thanks Jen!

Stats for Monday: 40 minute walk at lunch.  1,429 calories, 185 carbs, 65 protein, 51 fat and 22 fiber.

So excited for breakfast – I made Can you stay for dinner’s lemon blueberry pancakes!  And for lunch I have my version of Jersey Girl Cook’s Stuffed Peppers!  Have a great day! :D

  1. I have yet to make my own wontons…I always want to, but tried years ago and it was a complete fail! Those look delicious – as does your breakfast pizza!

  2. There is a place around here that makes great breakfast pizza, but I know it is just a heart attack on a plate…I need to make my own!

    How was your 24, 24, 24 party?

  3. I’m glad you made the green beans and I hope you liked them.

  4. I love chicken wings! I have so many good recipes for them. I just wish they weren’t so high calorie because I can eat them by the dozen. I’d love to try potstickers but I think it would need to be a weekend try for me – they look time consuming. BTW I chatted with Charlie via email and he said I should yell at you for not yelling at him for not blogging. Brothers!

  5. Thanks for trying my recipe!! I’m so excited and honored. Your wings look out of this world! I’m craving some good Biz inspired food now!

    And it’s amazing that you can make tofu look good – seriously, I would eat it if you cooked it!

  11. OMG those pot stickers look so delish! Now I want to order chinese takeout lol

  12. Can I just have your day of eats?! Everything looks so good. Everytime I see you make potstickers, i want to make them. I think i need to try soaking chicken in buttermilk too!

  13. awesome new kicks!

    that breakfast pizza!! ahh looks so good! what type of dough did you use ?!

    So glad you got the shoes, they look great! Gotta admit though, I’m a little jealous!

  15. Amazing potstickers! Love the spicy peanut butter addition! It’s been a long time since I made potstickers. I’ll save your recipe right now! And you can never go wrong with breakfast pizza… Once again, I wish I lived at your house… :)

  16. I have that same PB in my pantry, but hate it plain. I need to remember to start using it in dishes. Do you have a good peanut sauce recipe I could use it in?

  17. Oh my goodness, so much delicious looking food!

  18. The tofu + green beans + potstickers look SO good!! Yummm

  19. I can’t wait to see those recipes you’re making today! The chicken looks wooonderful :) We made your chicken tikka masala last night…SOOO good! Biz, you and the kitchen are made for each other!!! I posted all about it today :)

  20. That’s an awesome gyoza recipe! I make them once and a while, but not often, as we eat SO MUCH when I do! I find it impossible to eat only 4 or 6 of them. I put the rest in the freezer, but they tend to escape to my pan too quickly!

  21. […] I’ve had this pair of New Balance shoes for a while – I had to look up how long – um, turns out they are THREE and A HALF YEARS OLD!  I won them from Jenn from Prior Fat Girl back on March of […]
