Bacon Aioli Cauliflower Fritters

1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets or four cups frozen cauliflower
1/2 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour (almond flour works as well)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
1/4 cup milk
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoons minced scallions, plus more for garnishing
2 tbsp Terrapin Ridge Farms Bacon aioli for the mixture
Olive oil or Vegetable oil to fry

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add the cauliflower and cook it just until fork tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer it to a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut it into very small pieces (the cauliflower pieces should be the size of peas or smaller). Frozen chopped cauliflower will also work, simply microwave until warm 4-6 minutes.

Measure out 4 cups of the chopped cauliflower.

Combine the cauliflower, bacon aioli, flour, eggs, milk, garlic, scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl and stir until well combined.

Line a plate with paper towels. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and lightly coat it with olive oil. Scoop out 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the cauliflower mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly with a spatula and spacing them at least 1 inch apart. The fritters can also be fried in 1 Inch on vegetable oil, follow the same time instructions.

Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, flip them once and cook them an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they're golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate. Serve them warm topped with Terrapin Ridge Farms Bacon Aioli and a sprinkle of chives. Enjoy!

Cracker Crusted Chicken with Champagne Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce    

1 lb Chicken Tenders
2 C Buttermilk
1/4 C Franks Hot Sauce
1/2 C Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 C Wellington Croissant Crackers, crushed
1 tsp Poultry Seasoning
1/2 tsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste
Terrapin Ridge Farms Champagne Garlic Honey Mustard for dipping

In a large bowl, stir together the buttermilk and hot sauce. Add the chicken tenders and let soak in the buttermilk mixture for 30 min to 1 hour at room temperature.

In another bowl, stir together the panko, cracker crumbs, poultry seasoning, paprika, and salt and pepper.

Preheat the oven to 425 and line a sheet pan with foil. Put a cooling rack on top of the foil and spray with nonstick spray. This will allow heat to get under the chicken and they won't get soggy on the bottom.

Take the chicken from the buttermilk mixture and shake off any excess. Dip in the breading, pat the breading onto the chicken so it sticks, then place on the prepared pan. Continue with remaining chicken.

Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

Serve with Terrapin Ridge Farms Champagne Garlic Honey Mustard.
