This is "chef's choice" because you can use whatever shellfish you have available or that you favor. You can use canned, frozen and thawed, or fresh. Whatever you decide, you are guaranteed to produce a quick, tasty bisque that is sure to impress.
This is a simple, quick recipe that I have relied on for almost 30 years. The ingredients are generally on hand so it is easy to throw together when someone in the house is not feeling up to par. I have doubled and tripled this recipe to freeze some for later.
This recipe makes enough sauce for 4 servings, but any extra is great as a dressing for potato or other salads, or can be used as a vegetable dip, or spooned on baked potatoes. Serve these burgers as is, on a bun, or on French bread, adding the usual lettuce, tomato, and onion if you like.
For those who like (or need) to eat breakfast on the go, this is a great option. Be warned, though, that this cooks at a low temperature for 2 hours, then it really needs to sit for a good day before you slice it (which is not included in the prep time) but it is absolutely awesome with coffee, tea, or milk. You can make this when you have the time and freeze it by the slab (I meant slice) for quick thawing.
The recipe was an "in store" cooking demonstration at my local Hannaford supermarket. It was quite tasty, and seemed so easy to prepare. I think it would be lovely served over rice. I also think you could successfully substitute salmond. Posted here for safekeeping.
Although I usually think of coleslaw as a summertime side dish, it seems to go really well with my Super Bowl spread. I serve pulled pork with baked beans and some of this lovely, creamy coleslaw, then sit back and collect the compliments! Again, this makes a LOT, so adjust accordingly. This recipe is easily increased or decreased. Use a 16-ounce package of coleslaw mix for every six guests.
I have several recipes for baked beans, and they all seem to suit a particular time of year or occasion. These are the baked beans I traditionally make on Super Bowl Sunday. They go very well with my pulled pork and other dishes on my menu. I do warn you that this recipe makes a LOT of beans. This recipe is easily increased or decreased. Use a 28-ounce can of beans for every six guests.
This rich, chunky soup makes even the coldest winter day welcome. Add a crisp, green salad, crusty bread, and a glass of Merlot to complete a memorable meal that will fill - and warm - you up! Adapted from Good Food Magazine, December 1987.
Growing up with an Italian grandmother, this is like chicken soup for the soul to me! This is fabulous on a chilly or rainy (or both) day. Add a crisp green salad, crusty bread, and a glass of Chianti. Adapted from Good Food Magazine, December 1987. Prep time does not include time to soak beans.
This sounds like an unusual combination, but it is actually quite yummy and perfect for one of those frosty days. A glass of riesling and some crusty bread are the perfect accompaniments to chase away the chill. Adapted from Good Food Magazine, December 1987.
