You know when you see a recipe and you're so excited to try it that you can't get if off your mind?  That was me yesterday morning when I saw a recipe for french toast casserole with praline topping and decided that it was the perfect dish to make my parents for their anniversary today.  It was an overnight casserole, so I put it together yesterday afternoon before work and then this morning excitedly made the topping, piled it on the pan, and shoved it in the oven.  I imagined my parents waking up in about half an hour to the smell of sweet cinnamon and vanilla and stumbling down the stairs half asleep to be greeted with a melt-in-your-mouth delicious breakfast.  

Well, if there was a smell that woke them up, it was definitely not cinnamon or vanilla but a burnt smokey smell.  I didn't set the house on fire or anything, but I had to turn on the hood fan, open the doors, and stand under the fire alarm waving a towel above my head so that the fire alarm wouldn't set off.  There was so much smoke in the oven that I couldn't even see the casserole.  Fortunately, the topping actually turned out pretty good, but the bread itself was still sitting in egg batter and was rather goopy.  It wasn't a complete disaster, but I just wanted it to be perfect for my parents, and it was far from perfect.

That whole experience almost deterred me from doing any more cooking today, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and try out a recipe I had thought up in my head this morning.  Yesterday I bought some millet because I love trying new grains, and I love it in bread.  I also happen to have a ton of mint growing in my garden, and of course anything is better with fruit and cheese.  I sure am glad that I didn't let my cooking experience this morning stop me from whipping up this dish because it. was. incredible.  Good enough to serve at some fancy restaurant incredible.  Please do yourself a favor and try this.  I promise you won't have an experience like I did this morning with the casserole.
Creamy Goat Cheese Millet with Honey-Balsamic Roasted Strawberries and Fresh Mint
Serves 1

Ingredients:
1/4 cup uncooked millet
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk of choice (I used coconut almond milk)
Sea salt + fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 ounce crumbled goat cheese
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Fresh mint leaves

Directions:
For the millet:  Heat a small pan over medium-low heat and add the millet.  Toast, stirring frequently, until the millet begins to pop.  Cook for a few more minutes and then add 1/2 cup water and the milk.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Towards the end of  the cooking time, stir in the remaining water and continue cooking until the liquid is absorbed.  Stir in salt and pepper and about two-thirds of the goat cheese.
For the strawberries:  Preheat oven to 425 degrees, line a pan with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick spray.  In a small bowl, whisk the honey and vinegar together.  Toss with the strawberries and spread them out over the foil.  Save honey-vinegar mixture.  Roast the strawberries in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
To assemble:  Spoon the millet into a bowl and top with the roasted strawberries, mint leaves, and remaining goat cheese.   Drizzle the left over honey-vinegar mixture on top. 
This truly is one of those recipes that needs no perfecting because it already is perfect.  I'm not trying to toot my own horn, it just made me so happy that something actually turned out after I was nearly in tears with that casserole this morning!  This is also a perfect summer dish as fresh berries have actually been tasting like berries lately!  This dish definitely made up for my cooking flop this morning, and I know it will brighten your day as well.

Have you had any cooking flops lately?
What are you favorite summer foods?

LOL......oh geebuz what a scenario and outcome of what could have been potentially, an epic recipe! As for your successful one- um....YUM! I saw it on insta and got hungry- although I've never tried Millet before- except puffed millet in cereal form?

This looks amazing!!! I haven't tried millet before. Or mint either! But it still sounds delish! And that is too bad about the casserole! It sounds so yummy!

So (as your dad would start) what was burning in the oven? Something that had boiled over before? This happened to me many times after I popped something in the oven forgetting that grandpa had made scalloped potatoes last. He always boiled them over and got them out of the oven before it caught fire.

Aw man, I hate when things don't go as planned in the oven! :( I always stay away from the kitchen after things fail. However, this millet looks amazing. I have never had millet. Do you buy it in a bag like oatmeal? I will have to try out this recipe some time. I love recipes that are justttt perfect ;)

Ahhh I hate those kitchen disasters so so so much! I've lost track of how many times my oven burnt my food, actually. Not a fun thing, indeed :''(
Anyway, this millet porridge sounds absolutely amazing to me! That balsamic strawberry topping looks super delish!
Happy anniversary to your parents! xxx

Gosh this is such a unique way of using millet!! Gorgeous and delicious!

I hate those cooking mishaps! I wanted to make my mom her favorite Christmas cookies last year. I thought I followed my grandma's recipe perfectly until I realized I used evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. Ugh! I hate to remake it! Anyway, this recipe sounds amazing! I love fresh mint, goat cheese, fruit, and almond coconut milk! I've never used millet, but I'm sure I'd love it!

I love goat cheese! I have been trying a lot if new grains recently...but I haven't tried millet yet! I plan to start with this recipe!

I've done the same thing with a french toast casserole! Don't feel too bad!
Anyway, I love goat cheese, looks yummy!!!!

Oh my word, Alex- I am totally drooling at this recipe- it sounds so refreshing for summer! I especially love the combo of goat cheese with strawberries & balsamic. Summer for me (in terms of food) means lots of salads, smoothies, bbqs and ice cream!

Reply

This dish looks awesome! With the goat cheese and then those honey balsamic strawberries??

Oh man - sorry about the casserole. I hate when things like that happen. I get so so mad about wasting ingredients!

Reply

Sweet honey and strawberries paired with goat cheese and balsamic - am so drooling! Alex this sounds like a taste and texture party in each forkful!
Hey at least there wasn't a fire! I hope it doesn't keep you out of the kitchen for too long as you have more CHOCOLATE PROTEIN CAKE DONUTS to make for me!!! :)
