Great for Brunch or a light lunch. Fresh crab meat can be added to make even "more better" (Lenders makes frozen 2" bagel sold in groceries, this makes very good appetizers. But be sure to add the crabmeat and cut the cheese into smaller squares)
The mustard idea I got from Wolfgang Puck on a recipe he used with Ribeyes. I substittuded sauted onion rings for fried,pork for beef, added the shrooms and tomato. Came out fantastic, with requests to do it again.
We used to make this in much larger batches for a restaurant. Yes it has many ingredients, but once you make it and bottle it up, you will have it and your neighbors won't! Great on everything from ribs and chops, to burgers and seafood.
These fiery little friends are great for race days, tailgate parties and Sunday afternoon playoffs. Not suitable for synchronized water ballet get-togethers, though. After the last touch of oil is added they could be char-grilled if you don't want to heat the oven.
I like roasting chickens on one of those upright stands. Flavors run down thru the poultry, and excess fat drains out; and you can watch it turn nice and brown as it cooks. Herbs and spices can be added to the pepperoni when "stuffing". Carve and serve this dish with your favorite pasta and marinara sauce
