Friday Lunch at The Sugar Kettle Cafe

Dined at the Sugar Kettle Cafe in Daphne earlier today. What a treat! It is located just off Highway 98 — on State Highway 64. It’s just a stones throw (but really worlds away) from our neighborhood Target. Looks like a homey little place from the outside … kinda like a visit to Granny’s house. We circled the joint twice before we found a parking spot. That’s always a good sign.

The hamburger steak with mushroom/onion gravy tasted like the stuff my Mom used to make. And trust me, that is a really good thing! The cornbread muffins were soft and laden with corn kernals. There was a hint of sweetness that reminded me of Southern spoonbread. Sooo good!

Speaking of good, the Sugar Kettle’s soon to be world famous Tomato Pie was killer. In fact, I would have to say it was the best I ever put in my pie hole. “Attack of the Killer Tomato … PIE!!!”

Look at this slab of beauty — words can’t describe its innate greatness.

The collard greens were the real deal … none of that canned junk.

The Mac n Cheese was really flavorful and had a gooey nice texture.

We finished up with a tart Triple Berry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream.

The servers keep tabs of the food orders with playing cards like you see above. I must add that good eating will surely “be in the cards” for you at the Sugar Kettle Cafe. I was really impressed and will be back — hopefully often. It’s my new favorite when it comes to authentic home cookin’ here in beautiful Baldwin County.  

Here’s the recipe for the Tomato Pie – you cannot go wrong, people!

Tomato Pie Recipe
Ingredients:
1 round pie crust           

1 cup shredded mozzarella
2 or 3 tomatoes (peeled & sliced)        

1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup green onions (sliced)

salt & pepper
“Enjoy … compliments of The Sugar Kettle Cafe!”

Layer tomatoes, green onion, basil, salt & pepper to your own taste inside pie crust.   Mix mayo and cheeses. Spread on top of ingredients in pie crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

      1/2 a cup to a full cup — depending on how brave you are!
