You read that right. Make your own adult version of the kiddy treat.
So, I should probably preface this by saying that I realize I said that ain’t nobody got time to make their own pop tarts, but come on! This is an exception if there ever was one, and as we all know, the exception proves the rule.
This recipe from F&B Department is inspired by the port wine and cheese plate pairing by the Assistant Sommelier at the Polo Club Lounge in The Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans. If any southern city knows food and booze, it’s NOLA. The mature spin on the classic breakfast of lazy people everywhere includes a ruby port glaze and a fig jam filling. Wipe the drool off your chin, please.
Let’s be honest now, this is really not breakfast, it’s an excuse to have alcohol. No judgment, I’m as excited about this as you are. Boozy pop tarts seem like they’d be a great dish to serve after a bachelorette party or at a birthday brunch. A nosh like this deserves an equally grown-up beverage, such as a mimosa or Irish coffee. Bonus points for anyone who is actually in New Orleans when they make this treat, where you can just waltz down Frenchman Street with your alcoholic snack in hand!
Meagan of F&B Department recommends you use sprinkles, but if I were making this (and believe me I will) I think I’d use sugar crystals instead, because I prefer my pop tart to be more grown up. I tie my own shoelaces and everything…but maybe not after a breakfast like this. [See More]
