Renata of Testado, Provado & Aprovado! was our Daring Cooks’ April 2011 hostess. Renata challenged us to think “outside the plate” and create our own edible containers! Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 17th to May 16th at http://thedaringkitchen.com!
Since I am, so predictably, late on this month's challenge I'm not eligible for voting. But, hopefully I will be for the Daring Bakers challenge. Y'all know I'll let you know. Ha.
On to the challenge though. Edible containers. WOW. This was a really fun challenge. The first thing I thought of was the obvious bread bowl. This would have been delicious, fun, and truly a challenge for me but I didn't feel like it was "thinking outside the plate," so I nixed it and thought harder. One of the few things I remember my father cooking when I was a child were potato pancakes. They were kind of his "thing," and man are they delicious. I decided to try to make potato pancake cups and fill them with sausage and eggs.
