Savory Brioche Pockets

Oh yes, they were good. Homemade yeasty egg bread stuffed with cheesy potatoes (used feta, didn't have goat cheese in the house), caramelized onions, and asparagus tips. Yum! I think this would work beautifully with left-overs.

My ever-observant son commented that "something was missing". And what would that be? "Uh, MEAT?!?" What will I do with him? And then we discussed how bacon would have been a nice addition.

I feel guilty after whining about the cold weather last time. This week it started to warm up nicely. Even hit the 80s a couple of times. And with Memorial Day upon us, summer has officially arrived. School's out, swimming pools are open, grills are fired up, and there is SUN! Thank you, God! Life is good!

In other news, my husband started back on chemo. Just to stay on top of this thing. They've taken out the drug that causes the worst side-effects and that's been helpful. We pray that it will still be effective. Chemo days will still be on Tuesdays, but it seems that (for the moment at least) we are staggered with the Tuesdays With Dorie. So there's a chance that I might be able to bake on the right day. Not that you would know from this post...

The recipe for Savory Brioche Pockets can be found on Carie's blog here. She's also got some cool sewing tutorials. And the other TWD bloggers are listed here.

In honor of summer, here's a shoe:


  1. Yes, a little bit of meat would have been a nice touch :-) Mmmmm, bacon!

  2. Ah, bacon would be a brilliant addition! I hope things go well with your husband's treatments.

  3. Not a big fan of bacon, but yes, these were lacking something. I had fun making these and they are oh so beautiful! Just need a little tweaking. Memorial Day here, it sprinkled. :( Glad your day was a sunny one!

  4. I agree! Bacon would be an awesome addition. mMmMm bacon and eggs....Then you can have an fantastic breakfast version!
