Must Have Monday 8.21.17

This week’s Must Have Monday is inspired by my time in South Korea.  It is…

A pair of scissors or kitchen shears.

You may question the use of scissors in the kitchen but they truly make prep time quicker and easier. In Seoul, I saw scissors mainly used to cut grilled meat, which worked great, but I have found it has many more uses.  Here are the items I use to cut scissors with:

  • Raw bacon, pancetta, or prosciutto
  • Herbs (chives work especially well)
  • Scallions
  • Slicing a quesadilla
  • Trimming fat off meat
  • Dicing up dried fruit
  • Slicing a pizza
  • Breaking up whole canned tomatoes
  • Romaine lettuce for salads

Buying

On Amazon, the prices for kitchen shears range from $10-$15.  I use regular scissors which work just fine.

Suggestions

A few recipes I have used scissors include deviled eggs and caesar salad
