... And what a gorgeous presentation!
|That's one helluva crouton!|
|Mmmm, slurpy goodness!|

Fourth Dish - Cheddar Dumplings in Tomato Sauce
This tasty bit of cheesy goodness was Kari's and, unfortunately, it was the plate that broke our bellies' back. It also was a bit overdone. But the non-burnt parts were lovely!
Here's the recipe Kari originally used, but she used her own tomato sauce recipe, which is her secret, but the dumplings were super-tasty. Unfortunately, they were pretty dense and after 4 dishes full of cheese, that was about all we could handle.
|Full of cheddary goodness and snuggling a cat. Life is sooo hard!|
Now, there are still three dishes that we made but didn't get a chance to eat. I'll present those in a subsequent post.
So, the lesson learned from Iron Chef at Home? Well, for me, it's that the best part of kickass cuisine is always the preparation! Although the eating part isn't too shabby either...
Until next time, make sure your kitchen is the second most exciting room in your home!
