Hockey puck potatoes are delicious roasted potatoes that resemble hockey pucks in appearance, hence the name. Our family loves them! Well I had been giving my FIL credit for these, however I just found out that my DH (George) was the originator, so now I'm giving him credit. My contribution to the recipe was add the rosemary and basil. Please enjoy!
Our family was first introduced to the concept of "rare" Ahi Tuna when my sister-inlaw opened an inland NJ seafood restaurant. Frequently, she tested new recipes on us as well as her family & friends. The first time I tasted it, I was surprised to find out how good the rare tuna was! I then decided to create my own marinade that was more to our liking. The trick is to just sear the fish on a hot frying pan for 1-2 minutes per side and then serve immediately.
On Zaar I saw a recipe by Laurie for Tilapia coated in pretzels, so I just had to concoct one for halibut steaks. I can't begin to describe the flavor of the ingredients in combination with the crunchy texture of the pretzels!
I cut the cartilage, boney area and skin off the steaks, and then cut the pieces into 3"x2" chunks, which allowed the fish to cook uniformly and have the pretzels on all sides.
When the rest of my family would have chicken parmigiana, I created
this recipe for my one child who was lactose intolerant. And then it became
a regular favorite requested by the whole family as well. It can be adapted for
people who aren't lactose intolerant by just switching out the lactose-free milk
for regular milk I normally double this recipe. Enjoy!
This recipe is a family favorite and it is the number one requested food at family gatherings. I have no idea where the recipe originally came from, but I know my Mother has been perfecting it for years. Now in our family there are two thoughts on the proper way to eat them. Some like them with butter to cut the sweetness and the others eat them plain. Your choice! Enjoy.
