Confession: When I say "sometimes", I really mean "more often than sometimes".
It's a known flaw in my operating system.
Laundry - I am so all over you.
Plant watering - not so much. For the love of Gertrude, please don't ask me to care for anything that requires more than a twice weekly watering.
Planning a vacation months in advance - I am your girl. I will have your reservations made and your itinerary delivered one month before take-off.
Reading directions before starting something - uh, who does that?
You get the picture?
So, it should come as no surprise that I went into this thinking the pockets were going to be stuffed with jam or some other equally delightful substance. (You would have thought that "savory" would have been my first clue...)
Fortunately, I have made enough brioche that I knew I would have to start this project the day before I wanted to eat them.
As I started to prepare the brioche - visions of strawberry jelly filling were still dancing through my head.
While the dough was in refrigerator resting, I finally sat down and read the recipe and was very baffled why my jam filled pockets were asking for onions, potatoes, goat cheese and asparagus.What was up with that?
Finally, I started paying attention.
Savory does not equal jelly. Vegetables and cheese equal savory.
Was I making hot pockets?
Um, kind of, sort of...
Once reality and I became friends again, there really was nothing else exciting to report on. The process was a lot like making ravioli - only with dough...
Buttery, eggy brioche filled with goat cheese-smashed potatoes resting on a bed of caramelized onions and topped with a couple tips of asparagus.
What I expected? No...
Am I complaining? No. (But I still wanted something sweet in the center...)
Will I read the recipe in advance next time? I would like to say yes, but the real talk answer is "Probably not."
Lesson duly noted, but not learned...
