This kugel involves some work, but it is worth it. I got it from one of my new cookbooks that promotes "new-ish Jewish" cuisine, combining traditional recipes with a modern slant. I usually make this when we have vegetarian guests. It makes a huge amount, so it's a good recipe to bring to potlucks or parties, and you will get all the ooohs and aaaahs when everyone sees the layers, and then again, when they taste a piece.
Lots of vegetables gives this sauce a meat sauce look but isn't. I had friends come over while it was cooking and taste it a thought it was a meat sauce. I great way to get a variety of vegetables into your family without the I don't like that veggie! This freezes well so you can divide into freezer bags for future use (if it lasts). Use on pasta, in stew, bean dishes, top a pizza, or in soups. This can make this on your stove top as well.
This recipe has become a regular for me. It can also be divided to make 2 slightly smaller casseroles. I love to mix it up and pop half in a disposable pan and freeze. This way, it is easy to take to friends in need, like after a birth or a death in the family.
I decided to post this because none of the other Kim Chi recipes have a key ingredient that all Korean women I know use: pul, or rice water. I have made kim chee with many different Korean women who come from all over South Korea. I have never made Kim Chee the same way twice, even when I've made it more than once with the same woman. Like good Korean cooks, these women never measure, and I never have either, so the amounts listed are estimates. The taste buds are the ultimate judges, so taste a little of the Kim Chee before you've mixed it all up. Read the entire recipe for tips before buying ingredients. Good luck!
I've had this recipe since 1968, cut from the local newspaper, and served at a large backyard party. It's been a favorite dish for many occasions, good for a buffet at home or to take to a potluck. You can easily halve this recipe for a smaller group.
My family loves cheese potatoes!!! If you can't tell this is the 3rd cheese potato recipe I've posted. This by far is the easiest! My 17 year old makes this to take to all of her school banquets....its her favorite!
Taken from Out of This World CookBook II. I have never tried this! I don't know if it's meant to be a main course on a buffet or for a large family, or just a meaty side dish -- so I'll categorize it as both.
My favorite recipe from my gramma. She always called it a souffle but it is more of a corn pudding. My kids request this especially at Thansgiving and Christmas turkey dinners, and they like it with butter melted on the top.
Dirty Rice is a staple in South Louisiana. I fell in love with this dressing at an Easter family gathering. I begged and got this wonderful recipe from my husband's Aunt Adine Laborde (TeeTa as she is known in the family) I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
This is a dish that we make every Thanksgiving and is quite easy and tasty. There usually isn't too much left. And the orange yam color adds some interest to the table. A lot of this recipe is dependent on the amount of yams and 'eyeballing it' so the measurements aren't always exact. This can also be made ahead of time and reheated. Servings are estimated as we make this for about 22 adults and 8 children under 8 yrs of age. Please note that if recipe is to be made ahead of time and reheated, it should be on the moist side since it will need the additional liquid during reheating.
I got this recipe from Ohio magazine and an article about Amish cooking. It says cream cheese is the secret ingredient, and if you aren't having a dinner party then you can divide the recipe in half easily. This has gone over well at my large family dinners, so far nobody has left it on their plate.
