Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Antipasti. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The NV Armon with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 16 dollars per bottle.

NV Armon

It is a very refreshing drink, with full berry type aromatic flavor. There are hints of dark raisins of the nose with appealing fresh Strawberry. Best served cold with ice cubes, as a dessert to any meal.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 In a heavy bottom pot fry bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove from pot and leave to cool on a plate lined with paper towel. Spoon off the bacon grease leaving 2 tbsp worth in the pot. Add the olive oil to keep the fat from burning and toss in the onions. Sautee for 2-3 minutes. Pour in broth and add the two sprigs of thyme. Bring the mixture up to a boil and reduce heat and leave to simmer covered for 5 minutes. Once onions are tender add white wine and leave to boil until the liquid is reduced by half. About 10 minutes. In a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until it forms a paste. Slowly whisk in half and half until combined. Remove from heat and add to the onion mixture. Stir until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside. Spoon into 4 ramenkins and top each with an uncooked biscuit. Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes until the biscuits are golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for ten minutes before serving. FOR THE BISCUITS Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add butter and basil. Cut the butter into the dry mixture using a pastry blender or two knives until it resembles a coarse meal. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the half and half. Stir until the dough comes together. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface. Flatten dough to an inch thickness. Using a 2 biscuit cutter cut out 12 biscuits.
