Famous Chefs - Alton Brown recipes

A collection of recipes by Alton Brown. Raised in his mother's and grandmother's kitchens, Alton Brown worked as a cook throughout high school and college. But he never considered a career in food until—after a decade working as a cinematographer and video director—he realized that he spent all his time between shoots watching cooking shows, reading cookbooks and, yes, eating. After this epiphany, Alton and his wife DeAnna left the film business and moved to Vermont. Why ditch the film career? To pursue his first love: Food. Alton attended the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT, but during his years as a culinary student and throughout the restaurant and catering jobs that followed, he couldn't forget about television. Visions of comedy sketches, film noir and grilled beef filled his mind. He started to conceive a new kind of cooking show, one that would entertain and inform with wit and humor —- something for his sitcom-and-fast-food-junkie generation. With that in mind, he started writing Good Eats, a show that combines his passion for food with quirky pop culture.

from Alton Brown's show. Brining the bird is the key to moist meat. Made this again this year, only brined in just water instead of stock to save some dough. Again, the bird turned out perfect. Growing up, I hated white meat because it was always dry and grinding on your teeth ;-), now I love white meat. Cook time includes the brining time.

Recipe #13148

From Food Network's Good Eats: Zen and the Art of Omelet. I remember Alton saying that besides a decent pan, a good silicon spatula was ideal for omelet making. Substitute another favorite fresh herb if you wish;-French tarragon, parsley, chervil, etc. My husband swears by this recipe. Makes one omelet, but there is plenty for two people to share. Here it is, virtually verbatim:

Recipe #32306

This is my version of Alton Brown's Moo-Less Chocolate Pie. It is so easy and the tastiest of desserts! The first time I made it I didn't tell anyone it's made with Tofu. When I finally fessed up they wouldn't believe me! Prep time includes minimum chilling time.

This is a moist and flavorful bird with a crispy, spicy skin. I developed this particular recipe myself. I just don't like a soggy-skinned bird and the spices really kick it up. The roasting technique is my adaptation of Alton Brown's Good Eats turkey. The photograph that I included is actually a deboned bird that made for Thanksgiving 2003. The turkey (especially the leftovers) loses much of the gamy flavor if it has been deboned prior to roasting and it is so much easier to slice!

Recipe #98326

This is a recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats. My kids love them. You can get very creative with these burgers. I use potato rolls with these. Enjoy.

Recipe #95014

This is a wonderful recipe that is from Alton Brown of "Good Eats". They aren't dill, but boy are they addicting! Simple to make, I'm sure this can be adapted for canning - they never last that long 'round here. I can't stop eating them and others always want some to take home.

Recipe #113187

For all of the Alton Brown turkey brine fans out there, this is Mr. Brown's brine for shrimp cocktail. I personally like to add a few extra spices to my brine, which are listed above, but I've posted his original brine as he made it on his show. Ever since I found this recipe, its become ONLY way I ever make peel and eat shrimp cocktail. The shrimp come out so moist, and full of flavor!

Recipe #62878

I tried this slightly different way of cooking ribs when rain washed out our BBQ. We couldn't believe how tender and tasty these turned out and the method is quite easy as well.

Recipe #95414

Recipe #44287

This is in reply to a request for mac and cheese. I copied this from Alton Brown "Good Eats" from the food network. Does take a bit of work, but well worth it. You can add tuna, hot dogs or any other kinds of additions you want.
