Let these savory little puffs inspire you -- serve them plain or use a pastry bag to fill them, cream puff style, with a mixture of softened cream cheese, snipped chives and smoked salmon. This recipe came from a little book called Perfect Picnics. You'll want to double the recipe -- they freeze very well and are great to have on hand for company.
i love these cheese puffs. they are really wonderful with drinks and gluten free to boot - something i can offer a coeliac friend so they don't feel left out like they normally do. however, i've found that everyone i've offered them to loves them. i even made them when i went to london, and now my friend there can't stop eating them (or making them either). they are really cheesey and have a great chewy texture. tapioca flour is easily obtainable from asian grocery stores and the other items are pantry staples.
I made this for a Christmas party. It was a hit! Even my kids love it and they were excited to be able to help prepare it. I put down 30 minutes of prep time, but it doesn't include 4 hours for marinating.
I got this from epicurious.com and it has fast become a favorite with my three children. It's delicious - what made with puff pastry isn't delicious - and unbelievably easy. Makes a great appetizer and finger food (say for a ball game or other party) as well as the way we have it, for dinner. You can experiment with different fillings, adding ingredients like mango chutney - go crazy. It's all good. Note that the beef mixture goes a long way, so you might want to have an extra box of puff pastry on hand if you want to keep making them and freeze them - or you can use extra beef mixture heated up in a roll for a sandwich, which is equally good, actually.
Blueberries have to be my favorite food in the whole world, and in season I am eating them fresh as often as I can. I love blueberry muffins, but if you would rather leave the oven off on a hot summer morning, try this silly but yummy version of berry goodness.
These have reached comfort food status in my house. Very easy to make, spices can be added to personal taste, same with types of cheese, sauce, etc. This can easily be adjusted to a lower fat version by adjusting the ground beef fat content, biscuits and cheese. I am sure there are lots of these recipes or similar variations floating around the Zaar.
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.
You can substitute Curry Powder for the garlic powder and ground cumin. If you need an extra kick substitute chili powder and ground chipotle pepper for the garlic powder and ground cumin. This recipe was used in a 1100 watt microwave.
