Gluten-Free Pork Schnitzel

26757095_788451031365523_6251534751525026988_o.jpgI have to confess before my husband, I had no clue what pork schnitzel was. And I still say it wrong. I was intrigued watching him make it for his frat boys, though. Needless to say it’s been on my list for awhile.

The last year I’ve been cooking up some delicious lunches and dinners for Zach and I. Taco Chili. Deep Dish Pizza. Ricotta Baked Chicken. Chicken Enchilada Casserole. Buffalo Chicken Dip. And Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf. The meatloaf was one of my favorites and I’ll post the recipe once I make a tweak to it. So good.

This dish though, was one of my other favorites. I really like using pork rinds in place of bread crumbs in pretty much every recipe. This meal was SO filling. Mashed cauliflower has kind of been my go-to lately too. It’s so easy. Just boil the cauliflower and puree in a food processor. I have found a tablespoon or tow of cream cheese makes it whipped and wonderful. Definitely gives the best texture.

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet

This recipe is a duet of sorts, a duet of culinary creations by husband and I. My husband can definitely throw down in a kitchen. And he is a for sure boss at managing and running one. But he cooks all day. Plus I love to cook as well, so I generally try to cook for us at home, so he can relax and get out of the kitchen. This also gives me ample time to play and experiment with new recipes. Which is good and bad for Zach. Not everything I make is a home run the first at bat (like the tator tots that took me three attempts or my first round of pot pie). But he is always gracious, kind, and he gives me his honest opinion. The part is the most important part. I do not need people to just fluff my tail feathers. If something needs adjusted or tweaked I NEED to know before I go sharing. So I am unbelievably grateful for being surrounded with such honesty and truth.

I had never planned on posting or sharing this recipe, though (I have them planned through July already). It was just something I sort of strung together. Zach had some pulled pork in the fridge. We love sweet potatoes, but we have only eaten them just baked one time (on our first camping trip to Brown County, around a year ago). So I just started baking potatoes. Thought I would stuff the pork inside of them rather than serving it on the side. And I fried a couple pieces of bacon, because, why not? Zach raved about this lunch the whole time we were eating. “Babe this is good.””Babe this is so good.””Seriously.”

With this feedback I could not, not post it. And I love that it is a combination of the two of us. Plus it’s easy. Make the pork in the crock pot. just bake a potato. Anyone can do it.

Bacon Wrapped Butternut and Apple Stuffed Pork Loin

001

OH MAN THIS RECIPE IS GOOOOOD! Thursday’s is girls night for my friend Tab and I, when we can get together, have dinner, and watch Grays and Scandal. Perfect for testing out blog recipes, because Tab is a straight-shooter. Verdict on this: killed it. There is just something about the butternut/apple combination that is delightful. Plus it pairs beautiful with pork. Why not wrap the stuffed pork in a bacon weave? Homey, with a layering of flavor, this is a winner for the Delishmas dinner!
