Our Favorite Gluttonous Foods of 2013

Chocolate Covered Oatmeal Ice Cream Cookies It's It Recipe 36

Another year is nearly past and the Glutton Kitchen has shutdown for 2013.  So let’s take a look back at the year that was and revisit some of our favorite recipes which fit into a few particularly appropriately labeled “Gluttonous Categories.”

Cardiac Arrest Gluttony

There’s a form of legitimate gluttony in everything we do, but the following recipes made me question my sanity and whether or not my heart could handle more than a few sinful bites of each.  This is not to say each aren’t great recipes, but they’re definitely not for the faint of “heart.”  Click on each image to view the recipe.

Lighter Gluttony

To prove that not everything developed in the Glutton Kitchens is a calorie loaded bomb we offered you a few memorable recipes on the lighter side.  Our “Deconstructed” Clam Chowder was one of the easiest/best foods we prepared on the grill this year and our Cuban Black Bean Dip was a tailgating favorite for the sports-glutton team prior to watching the Colts/Niners game back in September.

Twisted Gluttony

…or “gluttony with a twist” is how I’d define the following two recipes.  As lovers of everything kimchi our Kimchi Chicken Quesadilla was a particular satisfying alternative to this standard appetizer.  That said our twisted old bay caramelized onion hollandaise sauce for some enhanced eggs benedict was mind-blowing deliciousness…so good I’d bath in it.

Sweet Gluttony

Every true glutton has a sweet tooth and we’re no exception.  The bacon jam developed for our cornbread waffles recipe is sinful savoy sweetness and who could ever complain about any cake that’s made with Baileys.

Fiery Gluttony

I’ll admit it.  I’m a bit of a spice-a-holic. But our Tropical Canonball Meatballs even made me question the wisdom of using habanero peppers in the recipe.  Nothing a little sweet rum glaze can’t fix though.  Delish!

Addictive Gluttony

Sometimes you eat things and you just can’t stop at seconds or thirds. Cases in point our Jalapeno Deviled Eggs w/ Candied Bacon & Lamb Meatballs.

Healthier Gluttony

Longtime readers of sports-glutton.com know that the Glutton actually led a moderately healthy life-style.  As evidence we presented you with these burgers and tacos.

Refreshing Gluttony

Thirsty Thursday is typically all about reviewing other peoples libations, but that doesn’t mean we occasionally don’t create our own.  Our Prickly Pear Martini is an unwavering fruity adult refresher that is ideal for the spring and summer months.

We hope everyone has enjoyed all the recipes we posted this year.  Stay tuned in 2014 for some revisiting of the old and the continue creative gluttonous you’ve come to expect from our kitchen.

    Wowsers! I had forgotten just how gluttonous your blog really is! I think I gained five pounds just looking at your gorgeous photos! I’ve got a bacon jam post coming up so I’m going to check out your post, sadly I’d forgotten about it when I made my jam.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New a Year to you and Liz. JT and I wish you all the best for 2014.
