Preparing quick, gourmet-inspired meals just got easier thanks to celebrity Chef Tyler Florence and Alexia Foods. Florence has created four recipes to pair alongside some of Alexia’s most popular premium, all-natural side dishes. From an open-faced, pulled pork sandwich and spicy coleslaw served with Alexia’s Spicy Sweet Potato Julienne Fries to Turkey Meatloaf paired with Alexia’s Oven Reds, the recipe combinations will help busy at-home cooks make everyday meals extraordinary.
Gourmet-flavored meal pairings from Florence:
- The Perfect Omelet with Watercress and Roasted Mushroom. Prepared with fresh eggs, crushed white peppercorns and finely chopped chives, this dish pairs perfectly with Alexia Roasted Red Potatoes and Baby Portabella Mushrooms.
- Open-Faced Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Spicy Coleslaw. Prepared with a dry rub of paprika, garlic powder, brown sugar and dry mustard and covered in a cider vinegar barbeque sauce, the flavors in this classic sandwich couple well with Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Julienne Fries with Chipotle Seasoning.
- Steak Sandwich with White Cheddar Sauce & Fennel Slaw. The white cheddar cheese sauce on this steak sandwich marries perfectly with the inventive combination of sweet Spanish onions and Japanese-style breading of Alexia Panko Breaded Onion Rings.
- Turkey Meatloaf with Tomato Relish. This down-home favorite comes to life with Florence’s delicious tomato relish served alongside Alexia Oven Reds flavored with olive oil, Parmesan cheese and roasted garlic.
