Well we've not had one in a while. This is it.Need you to follow the instructions below.The competition is for a recipe that you have invented, or, at least a known recipe that you have complimented with your own version and/or add ons.
It can be anything from a main meal, to a sweet/pudding, even a starter.
Then you must not only write out the recipe, but take several pictures of the process. Not every part of the process, but enough that we (either Paula or I) can piece together for a Kool Crafts Blog entry. You dont have to do the mosaic of the pictures, as said we will do that. You do have to enter your pictures and recipe on this thread.
They must go on this thread because when all entries are in, we will add a poll and ask people (all of us) to vote for the best two entries. This (voting) will/should depend on the recipe itself, and upon the quality of the photographs, so ladies get those camera's out and dust them off...
darn- i keep forgetting to get the one item i need yet...
Oh lastnight... i took some carrot sticks, onions, and par baked potatoes (diced) added a tad bit of olive oil (just enough to lightly coat the veges so spices would stick less then 1/2 a lid) and tossed them then added garlic,pepper,chili powder, salt, red pepper flakes, shake of celery seed and shake nutmeg..tossed again...placed in baking dish covered-with foil baked 350 for 20 minuted then removed foil turned (stirred) then added 3 pats of butter returned to oven(uncovered) and baked til carrots were done...........HMMmm Mmmm they were good!!
Cows In Bed this recipe is one I came up with when I needed something for supper but was tired of all the usual prospects, While this is just a “hamburger” the taste is changed so it does not taste like the “typical hamburger/cheeseburger”. It is completely an original! Created with my crazy brain ha-ha
what you will need 1 ½ lb hamburger 1 medium onion peeled and minced 1 pkg of premade biscuits 1-2 slices of Cheese quartered (optional) hot sauce (optional) 1 knife, 1 cutting board 1 medium sized bowl 1 fry pan and 1 flipper 1 cookie sheet and 1 cooling rack ~mustard and catsup
take 1 ½ pounds of hamburger place in bowl take your minced onions in with the hamburger and with your hands blend well...then roll into 10 roughly the same size balls, once you have the balls you will need to flatten them slightly (but not too thin) place in your frying pan. wash hands with soap and water fry your hamburger for 8-10 minutes flipping once (DO NOT FLATTEN as they are cooking) once they are done remove from pan and place on the cooling rack that is sitting inside your cookie sheet- this will allow the burgers to cool and drain DO NOT touch them.
Once they are completely cooled about an hour. Then take the biscuits out of the refridgerator and open them as package discribes remove buscuits from its container and seperate them, then take them ONE at a time and flatten them within your hands at the same time you are flattening them you should be also making them bigger once you have done this look at your burgers and find one that looks like it will fit within your buscuit. Now if you want cheese on them place chees on buscuit then hamburger on top now pull the buscuit around your burger completely covering the burger and cheese. Place on the baking sheet you had them draining on (but first wipe the tray off to remove fat DO NOT wash it)
Once you have done this to ALL your burgers place a tooth pick in all the ones with cheese (I do this step as I am placing them on the cookie sheet so I do not forget.) bake as per directions for the buscuits dont worry the time is plenty of time to make the burger hot again.
When they are done remove them from the oven and let cool for a few minutes then place them on a serving platter. I take mustard and catsup and mix them together (¼ c catsup to 1/3 cup of mustard mixed well) place a dollup of the mixture on your plate and enjoy. You can serve this with what ever side dishes you enjoy- but since this is a “finger”meal I usually serve with chips and carrot and celery sticks or what ever is available.
The xtra burgers you can place on the tray about 5 minutes before the rolls are finished to heat them- this you can have a traditional burger (I have xtras because my son does not like buscuits)
NOTE Other options are a few dashes of hotsauce in the meat mixture- I do not do this all the time as it does also alter the “hamburger” flavor. Play with your food you might discover something new! To reheat do not reheat in your microwave as it makes the buscuit moist again and too chewy I recommend they be placed in your toaster oven or back in your oven. For 10-12 minutes You do not have to use cheese, if you prefer not too. careful tho as to which cheese you use,because some are wetter then others and this will alter the buscuit, I use what is considered yellow american cheese.
This makes an AWESOME on-the-go food I wait til the are cooled to place inside the buscuit because I do not want it too cook the inside of the buscuit too much to make mushy,which is also why I drain them. Also,these tend to be filling ENJOY!
the next few pictures the yellow bits in the biscuit are butter bits that are within the biscuits
