One of the awesome perks of working in social media is that I am often given the opportunity to try new things and write reviews about them. Sometimes, I am even afforded the luxury of offering a giveaway to you all. I am happy to report that today is one of those awesome days!
The other day I received this gorgeous package in the mail from Rose Romano's:
I was so excited to open it and give the topping a try. Unlike typical pasta sauces, Rose Romano's is more of a topping to be used as an enhancement to your meal. You don't need to pour a whole jar on your dish to make it taste good. A few spoonfuls is all your need to make any dish delicious. There are both red and green pepper varieties - all locally-sourced, gluten-free and low calorie.
I'll tell you, I've been putting it on EVERYthing since opening the first jar. Omelets, sausage & pepper sandwiches... so far my favorite has been using it to make this Italian hot dog (recipe below):
Italian Hot Dogs
8 of your favorite hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
1 small onion sliced thin
1 large russet potato diced
1/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons butter & 2 Tablespoons canola oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt & pepper
Rose Romano's Italian Pepper topping to taste
Place potatoes and water in pan on high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cover for about 5 minutes or until potatoes are almost cooked through. Drain any excess water. Add butter & oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Cook a few minutes over medium heat and then add sliced onions. Cook until potatoes get crispy and onions are slightly brown.
Grill hot dogs to the desired doneness and assemble them on a plate. Put a hot dog in each bun. Add a spoonful of the potato onion mixture and a dollop of Rose Romano's Italian Peppers on top. Delicious! (Serves four- 2 hot dogs apiece)
