I was going to come at you with another salad today, but since Mondays usually blow we’re taking a different direction. How about we start out this week with some Coco Loco Porter Caramelized Onion Crostini. Heck Yeah! And yes indeed I said Coco Loco Porter. It’s an award winning craft beer from Charlotte’s own NoDa Brewing Company.
So if you have to go back to work on a Monday, shouldn’t you start with beer right out of the gate? Who’s with me?
What? You don’t have beer for breakfast on Mondays?
Don’t judge me.
If you don’t have beer for breakfast, as an alternative you can feel 100% confident serving these Coco Loco Porter Caramelized Onion Crostini at your next NFL playoffs get together. I mean, seriously. It’s an appetizer or party food perfect for football because it also includes beer! Duh.
Trust me. You can’t go wrong. If you can’t get NoDa’s beer where you are, you can substitute a porter that’s totally your jam.
Happy Monday and Cheers to a fantastic week, yo!
