I've made these for so long that I'm not sure of the recipe origin. They never fail, are easy to make & always good. They also work well & impress as a starter if served with crisp veggies, tartar sauce or a light mayo sauce thinned-with-milk & flavored with lime juice, dill & chives. Makes 4 patties of entree size or 6-8 of starter size. *Edited to Add* -- My spec thx to Chef JillAZ for reviewing this recipe for the Freezer Tag Game in the OAMC Forum & for the info she provided. Pls see Note #2 at the end of Prep Steps for this info. :-)
I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten. Editor's Note: Named Bourbon Chicken because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.
Fancy name for pork loin roast with potatoes and onions. This dish has been around forever and it's always a winner. If you can catch a pork loin on sale, then is the time to buy and freeze for special company dinners. This one is sure to wow them!
OH HEAVEN IN A BOWL! If there was ever a definition of comfort food, this would be one of them. Mom and Pop were poor when they got married and it just seemed only sensible to stretch leftovers tighter than the elastic on Sister Bertha's (second pew, piano side) pantyhose. This makes your leftovers something totally new! In fact, I've been known to stew a chicken just to make this. It's also good for when you're stuck in the snow.
My dietitian gave me the recipe during one of my counseling sessions. I told her it was deeelish. Their dietary dept. is really good about working with what you can/can't and will/won't eat for your special diet. Even though they are a hospital, the food there is surprisingly good.
I love a good meatloaf. What Redneck doesn't? The key to a good meatloaf, though is to get the right seasonings, the quality of the meat, and the right binding. Some put vegetables like carrots or other stuff in their meatloaf to trick their kids into eating healthier. A Redneck kid can sniff a veggie out from forty paces and will refuse to eat it. This does not apply to the mixed peas and mashed potatoes thing. This is a favorite recipe of mine. Haven't got a clue where it came from, nor does it matter. It satisfies this Redneck's palate. Give it a try.
I know there are a ton of Tso's Chicken (pronounced by the cook as "sho"). This one is exactly like the Tso's at Evergreen, the restaurant I frequent. This makes lots of sticky sauce, just great for going over rice. They are closed on Mondays, so if I'm craving Chinese, I have to make it at home, which is always better.
I LOVE shrimp. Rice too, actually. It doesn't hurt my stomach to eat either, depending on how they're prepared. BUT...this casserole, which I'm not a big fan of casseroles, is different. It's GOOD! and fancy enough for a dinner party. While it only serves 4, it's perfect for a small get-together of two couples. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy the praise you get from your guests!
This scrumptious chicken dish came from my Cooking for 2 magazine. It is from an article about dinner for guests. It is easily scaled down if it's just you and another person or you want to do some OAMC stuff. Catch those chops on sale like I do and hit the kitchen!
This is a wonderful, easy soup that is quick to put together for a nice weekend lunch or supper. You will probably have all the ingredients on hand, so why not make it tonight? I found this recipe on the internet.
