When it gets close to grocery shopping day and the larder is almost empty, you can come up with some good meals with limited ingredients. Use the best quality olive oil for this. Perfect for a light dinner entree. Serve with French baguette or rolls and a crisp salad; fresh fruit on the side. I also like serving this with Recipe #78791 if I don't feel like throwing a salad together.
Since I sometimes have to cook for just me, I've been on a search for recipes that make enough for just one or two people. So when I came across this one in the TOH 2002 Annual Recipes that was sent in to them by Edith Jennings of Prarie City, Iowa, I knew I had to try it.The time for peeling the potatoes has been included in the prep time. I guess if you wanted to speed up the time it takes to prepare this recipe, you could slightly cook the potatoes in the microwave or on the stove top. The addition of the French Fried Onions was my idea. Sumitted to " ZAAR " on October 21, 2009.
I love onion rings but I really don't like the grease that comes along with it so I looked around for some recipes for baked onion rings to get an idea of the technique and I came up with some unique touches of my own. Still working on this recipe though so bare with me.
I received rutabagas in my CSA box this week. I'd never had them before, but a friend told me I could cook them like mashed potatoes. So I peeled, boiled, and mashed them with butter, salt, and pepper. And took a taste... I was pleased to find they tasted a bit like smashed cauliflower, with a similar texture. And they hinted that what they really needed was onion and cheese. Here's how I made them:
I searched the internet for a recipe to use up some left over mashed potatoes.
This is what I found and made. It's simple, easy, and a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. This is one recipe that I always come to when I have leftover mashed potatoes. I once made these and I wasn't serving them right away, so I let them cool down then I froze them. A few weeks later I removed them from the freezer let them defrost and they were just as good. I have even added leftover chicken pieces and leftover meatloaf to this and it was yummy.
I have tried so many different recipes for Onion Rings and many were very good. However, I was looking for a real tasty, crispier Onion Ring and finally found this recipe posted by BlogChef.
I made some modifications and this is my crispy, crunchy recipe.
Raise the lowly cabbage to something extraordinary! This technique of sautéing brings out a wonderful sweetness you never knew existed in cabbage. You can add different spices to this recipe: curry, caraway seeds, or hot pepper sauce are just suggestions. But try it plain first! Adapted from The Low-Carb Cookbook by Fran McCullough
This is a another great way to prepare potatoes. If my husband and I are having sandwiches for supper...this is a great way to make them special. I use one medium sized potato and it makes enough chips for my husband and I. You can easily double or even triple the recipe for family and friends.
