This week I believe I’m going to do some “something out of the ordinary” recipes. These recipes will definitely break the winter hum-drum recipes. I’m headed for the kitchen and am going to get some new and exciting taste temptations from the “What’s Cooking at Tanner’s Grove” Second Edition cookbook. It seems everyone likes meatballs. However, we all think of Spaghetti and Meatballs. The first recipe I’m going to make is from TERESA SAMS. Here I go with her BARBECUE MEAT BALLS.
2 slices bread
1/2 cup milk
1 pound ground beef
salt & pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup catsup
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
Crumble bread in milk and salt and pepper to taste the ground beef. Form into medium balls. Place in a small casserole dish. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over the meat balls. Bake 45 minutes at 375º. (I’ve served this as a main course with vegetables and salad.)
This recipe is unique, fast and easy. It is also very tasty. From BRENDA KING, I’m going to make her CHICKEN BUNDLES.
4 chicken breast halves (bone in and skinned)
4 or 5 potatoes peeled and sliced
2 carrots peeled and cut in small pieces
1 onion, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter or margarine (you know I’m using butter - to me butter is always better)
On a square of foil, place one chicken breast rib side up; fill the hollow where the ribs are with the potatoes, carrots and onion, salt and pepper. Put one tablespoon butter on top, Close the foil wrap for each rib you make. Bake at 350º for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Unwrap, plate chicken breast up and enjoy.
Here is a recipe from KAREN PURSLEY. It will have your family and guests talking. She calls it CHEESE STRATA.
16 slices white bread
1 pound Cheddar Cheese grated
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the crusts from the bread and then cut each slice diagonally to make triangles. Layer half of the triangles in a greased oblong baking pan. Cover with 1/2 pound of the cheese. Repeat with the other 16 triangles and top with the remaining cheese. Now blend together milk, eggs, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Pour over the bread and cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Before putting in oven the next day, sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 325º for approximately 45 minutes until puffed and golden brown. You friends and family will smile and probably “say cheese!”
Get in the kitchen and show the love!
