I Smell Garlic!

Do you like butter (non-dairy in Wildtree's case), garlic, wine, salt and parsley?
Are you allergic to seafood or dislike shrimp?
Then you are going to LOVE Wildtree's Scampi Blend!

Can you toss it with shrimp & pasta to make an easy & delicious dinner? Yes!
But did you know how many other ways you can prepare it?
Chicken Scampi
Veal Scampi
Scallop Scampi
Stuffed Mushrooms
Garlic Bread
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
White Pizza Chip or Veggie Dip (mixed with sour cream, or sour cream & mayo)
Stuffing for baked stuffed fish
Scampi cream cheese for an easy bagel spread

Here are a few other of my favorite recipes using our Scampi Blend:

~ Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin ~
 3 pieces of sourdough bread (our beer bread works great too!)
 2 TBSP of Wildtree Scampi Blend
2 TBSP of Wildtree Roasted Garlic GSO

Make crumbs in your food processor. Mix in the Scampi Blend and the GSO until you have moist (stuffing texture) crumbs. Add a little more oil if you need to. Pat the mixture around your beef or pork tenderloin (all sides) and bake. Each slice will contain a flavorful herb crust! Easy and delicious!

~ Scampi White Pizza ~
Wildtree's Quick and Easy pizza dough (unbleached wheat flour, and SO good!)
2 teaspoons Scampi Blend
Grapeseed Oil (I used the Basil Pesto in the dough mix, and brushed Roasted Garlic on the top)
Wildtree's California Garlic Pepper Blend
Shredded Parmesan and Cheddar Cheeses

Make the pizza dough (I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook and it takes just minutes!). Roll out onto lightly oiled cookie sheet dusted with cornstarch (to prevent sticking). Brush oil onto top of crust. Sprinkle with Scampi Blend and also California Garlic Pepper. Top with 1/4 Cup shredded parm and 1 cup shredded cheddar, (more if desired) and bake at 375 for about 15 minutes (more or less depending on your oven). You can also use this as an appetizer for a party and cut it into small squares like a really gooey garlic bread...yum!

~ Scampi Au Gratin Potatoes ~
Serve with a baked ham!

5 large russet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1" cubes (or use frozen Home Fries/Hash Browns)
3 TBSP unsalted butter
3 TBSP flour
4 cups low fat milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or more to taste)
2 TBSP Scampi Blend
Bread Crumbs (optional)

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly about 2 minutes until it becomes a paste, slightly bubbling. Don't let it brown. Add milk, and stir until sauce thickens. Bring to a boil. Add scampi blend and potatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the cheese and add salt/pepper to taste. Pour into greased casserole dish. Top with bread crumbs if you wish. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let it stand for a few minutes before serving.

~ Stuffed Mushrooms ~
Great appetizer!
(Or leave out the mushrooms to make stuffing for a Baked Stuffed Shrimp Casserole)

1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed. Add 1-1/4 sticks of melted butter. Mix in 2 TBSP of Scampi Blend and 1/4 tsp of lemon juice. Optional - Mix in 4 ounces of any seafood (crabmeat, lagostinos, etc). Arrange 1/4 pound of mushroom caps on a baking sheet. Spoon the mixture into the caps. Bake 7-10 minutes or until heated through and light brown on top.
