                                     Cheese Fries

          Featured Ingredient:  HAVARTI CHEESE

 

2 lb (32 oz)  package of frozen French fries (I like shoestring, crinkle cut, or curly)

1 cup shredded Havarti cheese

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

 

Cook fries on a cookie sheet in the oven according to package directions.  Remove from oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees.  Toss the two cheeses together and sprinkle over the baked fries.  Return them to the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 or 6 minutes.

 

Top with 1/4 cup of chopped dried or fresh scallions, or canned jalapenno peppers, and 3 or 4 strips of crispy crumbled bacon.  Serve with Ranch or Aioli dressing on the side.

 

Notes:  This is a recipe I used to offer when I hosted a "heavy appetizers" cocktail party, though usually I used Meunster cheese instead of the HAVARTI.  The men especially liked it if they were drinking beer instead of mixed drinks.

Chicken Limone

 

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 eggs

2 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil

8 lemon slices

1/4 cup melted butter

Juice of 1 lemon

2-3 cloves GARLIC, finely chopped

 

Heat oven to 350.  Cut chicken pieces lengthwise into eight pieces.  Place chicken between sheets of wax paper and pound to 1/4" thickness.  (Or buy thin chicken breasts if your store has them.). 

In shallow bowl, lightly beat eggs with water.  In another bowl, whisk together flour, salt and pepper.  In a third bowl combine bread crumbs and Parmesan.  Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess.  Dip in egg wash and coat in breadcrumb mixture.

 

Heat skillet, add olive oil and when hot brown chicken, about 3 minutes on each side.  Remove chicken to a cookie sheet (or baking dish); place a slice of lemon on each and bake for 20 minutes.  

In meantime, combine melted butter and lemon juice and pour over chicken after 20 minutes of baking.  Sprinkle diced GARLIC over chicken, if desired.  Return to oven for 10 minutes or until cooked through.

Mocha Spiced Hot Cocoa

 

1½ cups milk

½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons instant coffee granules (I use decaf - can't have the extra caffine)

1/8 teaspoon chili powder

 

Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and firmly secure the lid.

 

Select Variable 1

 

Start machine and slowly increase to its highest speed.

Notes: I have found this recipe to be very adapatable, if you do not have a Vitamix it can be done on a stove top watching it carefully so as not to scorch the milk. 

 

You can also leave out the chili powder if you prefer.  I like the chili powder in mine, but my DH doesn't care for the extra pop of spice, and it bothers his stomach sometimes - so I leave it out till the end, and put some in my cup of hot chocolate.

Fruit Cocktail Cake

 

FOR THE CAKE:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 15 oz can fruit cocktail in heavy syrup undrained
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (I like the kind that has flour in it.)

  • Pour cake batter evenly into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes (oven times vary so check after 30 minutes.) When done, cake should spring back to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
FOR THE SAUCE:
  • Combine all the sauce ingredients in a medium sauce pan.
  • Turn the heat up and bring it all to a boil for one minute.
  • Using a fork, poke a few holes in the cake.
  • Pour warm sauce over warm cake.
  • Make sure to spread out the coconut and pecans evenly over cake.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

Turkey and Dressing in Crock Pot

 

3# turkey breast

1 pkg. (8 oz) stuffing bread cubes

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 small/med onion, chopped

1 cup DRIED CRANBERRIES

3/4 cup chicken broth (or less)

1 tablespoon melted butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon thyme

 

Coat inside of crock pot with spray such as Pam.  Add stuffing, onion, celery and DRIED CRANBERRIES.  Mix together.  Combine broth and melted butter; pour over stuffing and mix again.  Remove any string from turkey and rinse.  Place turkey on top of stuffing.  Combine spices and sprinkle over it.  

Cook on HIGH for 1 hour; then LOW for 5-6 hours.  Dinner in a pot!!

 

( I do not know where I got this recipe. Here?  I have made it once and it is good.  As I recall, stuffing seemed a little too moist.  You may want to add some chicken broth but not all.  Can always add remaining amount later in cooking if needed.)

Re: NOVEMBER 2020 RECIPE GAME

Since we're less than a week from Thanksgiving Day I'll add this recipe for delicious cranberry relish:

 

Fresh Cranberry Relish Recipe
    (makes about four cups)

 

1 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
1 large orange (or 2 small), chopped into small pieces
1 apple, peeled, cored, and finely diced
1/2 cup crushed pineapple (drained of excess juice)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup sugar  (I use Splenda)
1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Rinse and drain the cranberries, then pulse in a food chopper until finely chopped.  Put in a large bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and allow to sit for two hours (or preferably overnight) in the refrigerator before serving, so that the sugar can dissolve and the flavors can mingle. This relish freezes well.  And it's a great addition to your Thanksgiving meal.
