Chef George Duran Shares His Favorite Spring Eats

If you’re looking for a tasty balanced meal in a convenient bite-sized form, then check out the Bibigo Mandu. I feel comfort in knowing that whenever I want, I can pull these from my freezer and make my family really happy. Similar to a dumpling, it's the ultimate convenience of having a complete nutritious meal all in one bite. You can take the Mandu and pan fry them or for a healthier alternative just steam them. What about adding them to your favorite soup? What I love about Bibigo Mandu is that they are loaded with high quality meats, diced vegetables all in a tasty noodle wrapper. Top them with these Go Chu Chiang sauces like Sweet and Spicy or even Barbecue. Bibigo offers beef and chicken Mandu as well as frozen wonton varieties of every kind. Best of all, you can buy them in bulk at your local Costco, BJ’s and Walmart right now! Check them out at

I always like keeping good quality protein at hand at all times. In fact, when that protein happens to be America’s number one double smoked ham from Kentucky Legend, I feel confident that I can make almost anything taste good. What I love about Kentucky Legend hams is that they’re ready to just heat and eat. In fact, as Easter approaches you can choose from any of these three sizes depending on your family’s size. And don’t forget to glaze that ham as it adds the perfect sweetness to that amazing double smoked flavor. But best of all, these hams freeze beautifully and you’re able to keep them freshly frozen for many months, so that when you need to create a special dish, or just need to make those tasty sandwiches, you’re set to go!

I love to incorporate smoky ham into breakfast recipes that can be eaten all day long. So today I’ve made my infamous Spanish Tortilla, layered with eggs, thinly sliced potatoes and a ton of Kentucky Legend ham. This dish is not only great for breakfast or brunch, but can serve as a quick appetizer in a pinch. Visit for more information.

Recipe for Kentucky Legend Spanish Tortilla:


1 Tblsp. olive oil
2 C. Kentucky Legend Ham
1 C. chopped or sliced potatoes
10 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. salt
non-stick spray

Equipment needed:

10” non-stick sauté pan with heat resistant handle (alternatively, you may cover your plastic handle tightly with aluminum foil)


Place your oven rack on the middle position and pre-heat your broiler.

Add olive oil to a 10” non-stick skillet and sauté ham and potatoes for 2 minutes on medium-high heat.

Add eggs and salt in a medium bowl and mix potato mixture inside. Wipe skillet with paper towel and spray liberally with non-stick spray. Place on medium heat and add egg mixture. Once edges begin to bubble, cook for about 4-5 minutes, making sure to carefully loosen up the edges with a heat resistant plastic spatula. Place in the oven broiler and broil for 5-7 minutes, until the top has browned evenly and tortilla is fully cooked.

Using an oven mitt or pot holder, remove skillet and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Carefully loosen edges with a plastic spatula and shake pan until tortilla loosens.

Place a cutting board or large round plate on top of the tortilla and invert it.

Cut into slices or squares and serve.

Serves 6-8 as appetizer
