On Our Radar // 7 SAVORY DESSERTS

savory

We tend to think of dessert as the sweet conclusion to a meal — be it chocolate, ice cream, or fruit, it’s gotta have sugar, right? Not necessarily. By definition, dessert is just an “ending to a meal,” so finishing on a savory note is perfectly acceptable!  These scrumptious desserts prove that dessert is no longer just for the sweet tooth crowd. If your meal is best ended with cheese, or herbs, or…. bacon, then read on!

chocolate-brie-panini

This Chocolate and Brie Panini could be shared for a delicious dessert, or made for lunch, breakfast, or a midnight snack. We vote for savoring this after a long day at work, coupled with a glass of sweet red wine! (via Just a Taste)

bourbon-marshmallow-bacon-smores

What do you get when you mix a childhood favorite treat (S’mores) with grown-up marshmallows (bourbon!), and bacon? These Bourbon Marshmallow S’Mores with Bacon are off-the-hook outstanding! (via How Sweet It Is)

beer-and-pretzel-cupcakes

Does anyone else see these Beer & Pretzel Cupcakes prominently displayed at a tailgate party? Forks are a must for digging in to this unique treat! (via Bakers Royale)

strawberry-shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake with baby basil and brown sugar cream would be an elegant way to top off a dinner party. The wine soaked strawberries and brown sugar crème fraiche meld perfectly with the almond shortcakes. (via Feeding Time Blog)

caramel-bacon-popcorn

How about bringing a new treat to family movie night! Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn will delight everyone as they sit down to a classic flick. (via A Cozy Kitchen)

rosemary-lemoncello-cupcakes

Rosemary Lemoncello Cupcakes with Candied Lemon Slices are a delicious, palate-cleansing way to end a meal. You could also share them at a luncheon for an instant crowd-pleaser! (via A Cup of Sugar… A Pinch of Salt)

homemade-peanut-butter-oreo

Homemade is always better than store-bought. When you take a favorite treat, such as Oreos, and make them at home, you can put your own spin on them. That’s exactly what we have with this Homemade Oreos with Peanut Butter recipe. (via Two Peas and Their Pod)
