These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.
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
A great side dish or a meal on its own. This is a Polish/Hungarian dish. Can use bacon but I cut back on that to make it meatless. Also can garnish with poppy seeds. Adding peas for color and nutrition. Bacon is a yummy addition for those that eat meat. Just brown drain most of the fat then add butter and oil and brown onions. Be sure to give the onions a nice brown color using a med high heat.
These are a lot more interesting than plain roasted or jacket potatoes. They're perfect to serve with a roast and easy to do. As the potatoes cook the slices fan out so, as well as tasting great, they look pretty too!
This dish has been served every year at my holiday dinner table, I double the recipe and sometimes even triple depending on how many people I have at my table, there is never anything left and I always receive rave reviews all around! --- two small cloves fresh minced garlic may also be added in and sauteed for one minute in butter before adding in the flour--- you will also find this recipe on my food blog http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/09/15/blue-cheese-broccoli-bake/
Adapted from a Chinese cookbook by Jim Lee that was published around 1970. This is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks; I was introduced to it by friends who were Chinese students I knew at University of Virginia. The gai laan which the Chinese eat is not actually broccoli, but broccoli is a good substitute which works well in America, where most of us don't have access to gai laan.
I love onion rings but try to stay away from deep fried foods. These are exceptionally good. This recipe serves 4 but I'll bet 2 can go through the lot of them. This is not my original recipe and I can't remember who to give credit to, but thanks to someone. enjoy!Try using Panko Crumbs- Don't worry if they are not completed coate the crunch will still be there
I had never thought of celery as the basis of a dish until I saw this recipe in the "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook" almost 15 yrs ago. Honestly I only tried it because we were on such a tight budget that I had no other veggies in the house one night. Boy, were we surprised! We have it fairly frequently, even when we don't have the cheese on hand, and it's a great conversation piece at dinner parties because it's so unexpected, so simple, and yet so good. When I want something totally vegan, I just substitute veggie broth for the chicken bouillon.
this is the first year i planted a garden here in pa. it was essentially herbs, but i threw in 2 tomato plants and one pepper plant, now this late in the season i am left with many green tomatoes. this recipe is courtesy of tyler florence, and worked perfectly.
This is my favourite potato recipe of all time. It makes the perfect accompaniment to a roast or any other meat dish. Traditional recipes for this take 1 1/2 - 2 hours to cook, so I start mine off in the microwave. Some recipes are very rich, calling for all cream plus butter and cheese on the top. I've found this version - even when made with low fat ingredients - tastes wonderfully creamy but not too rich with no compromise on flavour. One of the best things about Potatoes Dauphinoise is that if there's any left over it keeps well in the fridge for several days and it reheats beautifully in the microwave (unlike roast potatoes which can taste a bit floury when reheated). I've also frozen it, defrosted it in the fridge during the day, then reheated it in the oven for dinner. Try it - I know you'll love it!
These are your standard traditional English roasties. IMO there is an art to making these, at least the perfect golden crispy kind that I grew up with. The trick is to give 'em a good shake in a colander after par-boiling to rough up the edges of the potatoes. Then once roasting; position spaced apart, turning only once or twice and basting in the hot oil every so often. If you don't manage the crispy texture (which you will, if you do the above!), they'll still taste excellent. You can't go wrong. I sometimes like to sprinkle rosemary/paprika/thyme or even a little garlic on top of mine for extra flavour.
