My eyes popped open at the pre-dawn hour of 4:30 am. I know, crazy, right?
I should have known it was way too early when the dogs didn't bother to wake up and follow me into the kitchen.
I already had one cup of coffee before I bothered to look at a clock - and by then there was no point trying to get back to sleep:(((
But, I consoled myself by making these:
|Savory ricotta balls.|
I rolled them into balls about the size of a walnut.
I rolled them first in some flour, then some egg yolk and finally in some matzo meal.
|Ready to go into the pan.|
I started by searing them in a pan on medium high heat - but they started getting too brown so I finished them in a 375 degree oven for 7 minutes.
|With a side of steamed asparagus.|
They turned out crunchy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside. The slightly sweet ricotta paired perfectly with the pungent blue cheese.
I also had some strawberries but I forgot to take a picture of those.
Oh, and I broke out the french press today for my coffee.
Have a great Wednesday!!
