Whatever types of foods you and your significant other like the most, we hope one of these recipes will help make an evening together truly special. Whether you want to surprise that special someone or cook together, give one of these delicious recipes a try this Valentine’s Day.
1. Scrumptious Stuffed Mushrooms on the Side
Stuffed mushrooms make a perfect savory appetizer or side with your meal. For a fantastic taste, use our recipe for Scrumptious Stuffed Mushrooms this holiday season. While the mushrooms bake, you and your significant other can prepare the other parts of the meal or just enjoy spending time together. And since this recipe already calls for some wine, you can sip on any that you have left over! Once the mushrooms come out of the oven, make sure to eat these bite-sized delights right away while they’re hot to fully enjoy the gooey cheesy taste.
2. Simmered Sausage and Seafood Bake
Check out our recipe for Chef Capon’s Premio Sausage and Clams bake. With the opened clams, shrimp and bright colored veggies, your significant other will think you spent hours preparing this dish! But, it only looks like a complicated recipe — it’s easier to make than you think! The toasted baguette adds the perfect side to this filling seafood and sausage bake, and the cast iron adds a delicious taste that the two of you will want to make again for other occasions. You can eat this filling dish on its own or make some egg noodles or rice on the side.
3. Romantic Breakfast Bake
Surprise your special someone with breakfast in bed, or serve one of their favorite types of foods in the evening as a breakfast for dinner. Our recipe for Bourbon Street Breakfast Bake is filled with all kinds of amazing flavors. The Premio sausage used in this recipe has amazing flavors just by itself, but when you add in the remaining ingredients, it all comes together for a to-die-for taste in every bite. The veggies, cheese and egg work perfectly together to create an amazing dish you can enjoy at any time of the day.
4. Snuggle Up With Flavorful Soup
Soup is one of the fix-it and forget-it type of meals. You chop up your ingredients, add them to a big pot and let all the flavors simmer together. For a delicious soup recipe to cook together, try our recipe for Grandma Mary’s One Pot Hardy Minestrone. This soup has it all — veggies, pasta, meat and herbs and spices. While the soup is simmering, you can pop in a movie or watch some TV while you snuggle under a blanket. Even pour a glass of your favorite wine! Once the soup is finished, you can keep up your casual evening on the couch or light some candles while you eat at the table.
