Japanese “Fast Food”- Mini-Croissant

Filed under:Fast Food☆ — posted by IOjaw on June 28, 2006 @ 9:24 am

Although most people would not think of a croissant as a snack item, this particular type of the pastry being sold by a local convenience store chain is small (about 3 inches by 1.5 inches) and extremely flavorful. It can be eaten on its own or filled with some on-the-go ingredients.

When we grill, I usually help with the food prep. Hubby decided to give me a day off and did all the prep and cooking on this dish, Papa’s Grilled Foil-Wrapped Sausage-Liver Penne:

The pasta was precooked on the stove. Then topped with spicy sausage, smoked liver, mushrooms, and rosemary that had been grilled in a foil wrap on the BBQ pit. He added a simple salad made with homegrown greens from his first patio garden boxes. The greens were mixed with iceberg lettuce and cherry tomatoes and dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette.

Hubby used sesame oil, spam, mushrooms, garlic slices, bacon, and spring onions for this version of fried rice. He didn’t use eggs because they tend to upset my stomach on occasion.

Hubby is trying another delicious chicken dish, Papa’s Lemon Chicken with White Wine Sauce Penne Dinner:

Hubby arrived at the idea by combining two seperate recipes. First he a sautéed the chicken in olive oil, then added garlic, butter, lemon, oregano, and white wine. After plating the penne, he topped it with the chicken and then sprinkled with some parmesan cheese. To accompany the dish, hubby made a small salad of iceberg lettuce, arugula, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and bacon bits with creamy dressing.
