Lamb and Brie Sliders with Homemade Truffled Parmesan Potato Chips


This Easter I decided to do something non traditional…something snazzy and it was a big hit! I feel like every year we do the similar style dishes and that can get boring. So Evan was the Fry Daddy and I took over the grill! This was definitely not a boring meal! This was also the first Easter we spent without our families, Evan’s parents are in Singapore still and mine are coming up tomorrow to babysit their Granddoggie and Grandkitty babies (we don’t have kids so they fill that void). 😉

Evan is going to San Fran for a Bachelor Party Trip for one of our best friends and I’m going to Denver with 2 of my best lady friends for a beer extravaganza (we LOVE beer). I will also get to see my god father that I haven’t seen in ages on Saturday!!! So if you start to wonder where Zesty is… I’m ok 😉 I’ll be gone Thurs-Sun, don’t worry I’ll still be posting a pizza because I can’t let my pizza lovers down!

If ANY of you have any suggestions for awesome places to eat or drink in Denver or San Fran please drop me a line! We wanna know!

About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!

  1. We must be on the same wavelength–I am about to post Greek meatballs with tzatziki! Haha. This looks seriously delectable. And I just ate breakfast! Also, that cat is adorable, and I want to steal him.

    • Hahaha! Awesome! Thank you! I too make the mistake of blogging while eating breakfast and never feeling really full ha! I’m always hungry! 😉 He can be a pain, don’t let the looks fool you hahah!

  2. I gorged myself on brie recently so I’m really off it at the moment but it looks wonderful. I haven’t had lamb in what seems like months either… will need to try something like this soon!

  3. Lamb sliders with a big hunk of brie. Oh ya I’ll take some of that.

    I used to live in the Bay Area so I’ll sent you an e-mail with a few places Evan might want to consider.

  4. How unusual! I cooked your lamb and pesto for our Easter…my son-in-law is still talking about it! This would be very different and crowd pleaser in my family–and I do feed crowds! Ha! There are so many great places in San Francisco, but we frequently visit Kuleto’s for its ambience and easy location. When I’m with my cousins who live in the area we go to more “hidden” specialities, but I get turned around! Kuleto’s has a good website…you can see if it might be what you have in mind. We like it! Have a great time. Debra

  5. Yum that’s a good combination the lamb and brie in a slider that is awesome
    and you also truffles parmesan chips .Very Nice.

  6. I love the small bites ideas of mini sandwiches with these very exquisite ingredients. We have so many family members we can never sit down to all eat at the same time anyways so great idea for a gathering. Take Care, BAM
