I am no Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray or Paula Deen. I do wish to become a better cook, especially for poor Mr. Bigtime who was to endure all of my failures in the kitchen. My favorite was a dish I tried that basically consisted of tomato sauce, onions, tortillas and eggs. Let’s admit it, we both hated it, had a great laugh, and grabbed some In N Out. My Bigtime appropriately named that meal “egg slop.” Practice makes perfect, so there will always be a disclaimer for my recipes: they might taste a little like “egg slop.”
Thankfully, my amazing and talented mother-in-law used to be a caterer, so I get great tips and recipe ideas from her. The other day we went over and had some delicious Mango Brulee from one of Martha Stewart’s magazines! It’s such an easy recipe!!! Here it goes:
Total Time: 20 minutes
2 mangoes, halved and pitted
1 lime, cut into wedges
1/4 cup turbinado sugar
Heat broiler to high with rack approximately 6 inches from heat source. Sprinkle one tablespoon of sugar evenly over cut side of each mango half. Immediately broil on a foil-lined timmed baking sheet until mangoes are softened and sugar is hardened and golden brown, 5-7 minutes. Serve warm with lime wedges.
Nurse Frugal recommends serving it with a dollop of whip cream on the side or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
