Whenever I get nervous I want to eat something warm and comforting. In fact whenever I get sad I want to eat something warm and comforting. Heck whenever I'm happy, excited, anxious, . . . I just like to eat. And, Sunday was no exception. I felt the first tinges of a cold coming on so what did I want...? Yep...something warm and comforting.
So I made a homemade lasagna and garlic toast. And, I finished it off with a mango brulee'. Here's how I made the mango brulee' - thanks to Martha Stewart for the idea - but my husband being so handy, I even had a torch to use. It might not have been a kitchen torch but no matter, it worked just fine. (I had to flip the video - my husband filmed it sideways)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cube of butter
Half the mangoes, taking out the seeds
put a pat of butter on each side of the mango
sprinkle with sugar
Bake at 425 for about 30 minutes
Then I took the mangoes out of the oven and used the torch to intensely heat up the brown sugar (in this clip I used a little white table sugar) and butter to caramelize the tops of the mangoes.
Then I served the warm and comforting mango brulees. Of course this wasn't your typical custard brulee or creme brulee but it was a fun twist to try for a change.
