Spooky Apple Pizza {Vegetarian} and Meatless/Vegan Monday Link-up

Day 255.

I'm over at OAMM again today with a Halloween treat, Spooky Apple Pizza. Can you tell I'm totally into Fall already? This is an excellent use for all those delicious apples, with or without the spooky spiderweb topping. And yes, it has cheddar cheese. It's a Southern thing I didn't entirely understand when we first moved here. The key to it working, in my opinion, is a small amount of cheese compared to the amount of apples AND a really good, sharp cheddar. The apples pair so well with that sharp cheddar it's shocking.

The Results
Wow. Delicious. It's a little on the sugary side for an everyday breakfast, but the apple and pecan mixture is excellent. The creamy cheese and sour cream really completes the range of flavor. I think you could definitely take this a more savory route by halving the amount of brown sugar and MAYBE even increasing the cheddar a bit. Love this and the kids thought it was hilarious.

Meatless/Vegan Monday Link-up

Today's Meatless/Vegan Monday meal is Veggie Grettie's: Mushroom Rosemary Dinner Pancakes. She had me at dinner pancakes. There were a lot of great submissions this week, so it was a tough choice. But this is such a creative blend of flavors. You should also check out Breakfast Polenta Cakes and Bruschetta with a Twist.

Now for the link-up rules: post your link to a meatless (vegan or vegetarian, or even an attempted meatless) recipe that you've posted on your blog. Next week, a reader recipe that was linked up this week will be highlighted on Meatless (Vegan) Mondays. Each week you link up or comment, gives you an opportunity to be featured the following week. Please join the Meatless (Vegan) Monday link-up. What Vegan or Meatless Monday Meal is your family having today?
