Great food is a balancing act. Sometimes you balance it like a Calder mobile sculpture, with grace and delicacy. Sometimes you can only create balance by pitting things like acid against fat, or sweet, or bland (consider nachos, key lime pie, and vindaloo with rice).

This snacking cake may look a bit like cornbread, but it’s telling a Cirque du Soleil-style balancing story in your mouth. Turkey gives you great protein as a backdrop, and all the stars in front — onion, scallion, chili, garlic, cumin, cheddar cheese — make this glorious.

It’s just simply crazy good.

And wicked easy.

And it’s all done in a single, beautiful, big EuroCAST skillet. (You always need another skillet, especially with holidays coming. So take a look at the stir-fry wok plus 11” skillet deal I asked EuroCAST to put together — get the wok at a great price and the skillet is only $20 more. The offer is down below.)
