I’ve seen so many yummy recipes using Pork Belly however it’s one of those things I haven’t had any experience with. I was shopping at Costco recently and came across a package of Pork Belly that was already sliced. It looked almost like bacon but for the fact that it was cut into thick slabs. I wasn’t sure what I could do with it since it was already cut but I thought why not give it a try. One of my favorite pizza’s is a potato leek pizza that I usually make with bacon so I thought I would substitute the pork belly for the bacon and see how that turned out. Pork belly tastes quite different, you don’t get the smoky salty flavors of bacon. But I do think it goes quite well with this particular pizza, the tender chunks of pork belly matched with slices of fried potatoes, sauteed leeks and melted mozzarella make one savory slice of deliciousness.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any recipes. My camera was acting up and developed a lens error which prevented me from taking pictures. It took a few weeks to send it off and get it back in working order again. Then the holidays were upon us and I had my hands full with no time to blog. I’m just getting back in my groove and wanted to share one of my favorite pot pies with you. Pot Pie is a favorite of mine, however my hubby Joe doesn’t enjoy my enthusiasm for pot pie. So I compromised and made a pot pie with minimal dough, just a crusty puff pastry dough on top. And I added some spicy chicken and veggies that we both love, roasted corn, green chile and red onion. It had all the flavors of home and it couldn’t have tasted better. They were made in individual ramekins, just the perfect size to heat up for a quick lunch or have for dinner with a side salad.
