Roast Chicken with Creole Stuffing

1-1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
2 fresh Italian sausage links
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 cup diced fully cooked ham
1 cup frozen cooked small shrimp, thawed, optional
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 roasting chicken (5 to 6 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Dash pepper

In a large saucepan, cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook sausages in oil. Remove sausages, reserving drippings. When cool enough to handle, cut sausages in half lengthwise, then into 1/4-in. pieces; set aside.

Saute onion, garlic and peppers in drippings until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, lemon juice, basil, sugar, hot pepper sauce, bouillon, chili powder, pepper, thyme and 1 teaspoon salt; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add to the cooked rice. Stir in ham, shrimp if desired, parsley and sausage; mix lightly.

Just before baking, stuff the chicken with about 3-1/2 cups stuffing. Place remaining stuffing in a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish; cover and refrigerate. Place chicken on a rack in a roasting pan; tie drumsticks together. Combine paprika, pepper and remaining salt; rub over chicken.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Cover and bake 1-1/2 hours longer or until juices run clear. Bake additional stuffing for the last 40 minutes of baking time, uncovering during the last 10 minutes. Makes 8-10 servings (8 cups stuffing).

Marinated Lamb with Orange Chimichurri

Chimichurri is an Argentinean condiment commonly served with roasted and grilled meats. Here, it's a delicious match for lamb. Chimichurri also makes a nice tapas-style appetizer with toast points. For the freshest results, prepare the chimichurri while the roast stands.

Lamb:
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 (4-pound) boneless leg of lamb, trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray

Orange Chimichurri:
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
2/3 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup packed fresh parsley leaves
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, peeled

To prepare lamb, combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl; rub over lamb. Place lamb in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 400°.

Remove lamb from bag; discard any remaining marinade. Sprinkle the lamb evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roll lamb; secure lamb at 2-inch intervals with twine. Place lamb on a rack coated with cooking spray; place rack in pan. Bake at 400° for 55 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (medium-rare) or desired degree of doneness. Let roast stand 20 minutes before slicing.

To prepare orange chimichurri, combine the cilantro and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Serve with lamb. Makes 8 servings

6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Fit 1 piecrust into a 9-inch deep-dish pieplate according to package directions; trim dough around edges of pieplate. Place remaining piecrust on a lightly floured surface; cut desired shapes with a decorative 1-inch cookie cutter.

Brush edge of piecrust in pieplate with beaten egg white; gently press dough shapes onto edge of piecrust. Pierce bottom and sides with a fork. Line piecrust with parchment paper or aluminum foil; fill piecrust with pie weights or dried beans.

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Remove weights and parchment paper; bake 5 more minutes, and set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 350°. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tsp. drippings in pan. Crumble bacon, and set aside.

Sauté chopped onion and mushrooms in hot drippings 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Stir together bacon, onion mixture, half-and-half, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine cheese and flour; add to bacon mixture, stirring until blended. Pour mixture into crust.

Bake at 350° for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. (Shield edges with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning, if necessary.) Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings

Hen and Dressing

1 (3-pound) hen or whole fryer chicken
2 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper, divided
8 cups Cornbread, crumbled
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely diced celery
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage or 1 to 2 tablespoons dried sage
2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

Rinse hen under running water, remove giblets, and place hen in a Dutch oven with enough water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 hour. Remove hen from pot, and keep liquid warm. Pull meat from bone once hen cools, and discard carcass. Tear meat into small pieces (about 3 cups).

Preheat oven to 350°. Crumble Cornbread into a large bowl. Add onion and celery, sage, remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and remaining 1 teaspoon pepper. Bring reserved cooking liquid to a boil, and stir 4 cups into mixture, 1 cup at a time. Dressing should be loose but not gummy. Add more cooking liquid as needed. Lightly stir in chicken and egg.

Spoon dressing into a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, and bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until heated through and slightly browned on top. To make ahead, cover dressing and refrigerate up to 2 days before baking. Makes 10 to 12 servings

Cornbread

1 slice bacon
2 cups white self-rising cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 large egg
2 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450°. Place bacon in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, and place in hot oven 5 to 10 minutes or until fat is rendered.

Mix cornmeal and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Remove skillet from oven, reserve bacon strip for another use, and stir 1 tablespoon grease into cornmeal mixture. Pour batter into hot skillet, and bake 20 minutes or until slightly brown on top. Makes 8 cups crumbled

Apple Tart with Mustard Custard and Cheese Streusel

1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 tablespoons prepared mustard (see notes)
1 large egg
4 cups coarsely chopped peeled Golden Delicious apples (about 1 3/4 lb.)
Butter pastry
Cheese streusel

In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over medium heat, melt butter and stir often until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, in a bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat sugar, flour, and dry mustard until well blended. Beat in prepared mustard and egg. Add hot butter in a thin, steady stream, beating until mixture is cool, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently stir in apples.

Spoon apple mixture into warm baked butter pastry and spread level. Sprinkle cheese streusel evenly over filling. Set tart on a foil-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheet.

Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until streusel is golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. If tart edges brown excessively, drape lightly with foil. Cool on a rack about 1 1/2 hours. Remove pan rim. Cut tart into wedges. Makes 8 to 10 servings

Butter Pastry

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine, cut into chunks
1 large egg yolk

In a food processor or a bowl, whirl or stir flour and sugar to blend. Add butter, and whirl or rub in with your fingers until fine crumbs form. Add egg yolk; whirl until dough is blended and comes together, or mix with a fork until blended, then press into a ball. Press pastry evenly over bottom and up sides of a 10 1/2-inch tart pan with removable rim. Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cheese Streusel

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter or margarine, cut into chunks
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

In a food processor or bowl, whirl or stir flour, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until blended. Add butter and cheese; whirl or cut in with a pastry blender until fine crumbs form.

Lamb with Herbs and Garlic

1 leg of lamb (about 6 lb.), boned and butterflied (boned weight 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 lb.)
4 cloves garlic, cut into thin slivers
1 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons cream sherry
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
5 sprigs (4 to 6 in. long) fresh rosemary, rinsed
About 1/2 teaspoon salt
About 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Rinse lamb and pat dry; trim off excess surface fat. With a small, sharp knife, cut slits about 1/2 inch wide and deep all over lamb and insert slivers of garlic.

In a 9- by 13-inch noncorrosive baking dish or large bowl, mix wine, olive oil, lemon juice, sherry, thyme, rosemary sprigs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add lamb and turn to completely coat with marinade. Cover the lamb and chill, turning occasionally, at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

Lift lamb from marinade and spread out flat on an oiled barbecue grill over a solid bed of medium coals or medium heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 4 to 5 seconds). If cooking over charcoal, drop rosemary sprigs from marinade onto coals for aromatic smoke, if desired.

Discard marinade. Close barbecue lid. Cook lamb, turning once, until a thermometer inserted in center of thickest part registers 135° for medium-rare (still slightly pink; cut to test), 20 to 35 minutes; thin parts will be well done.

Transfer lamb to a rimmed cutting board or platter, cover lightly with foil to keep warm, and let stand 10 to 15 minutes. Slice meat thinly and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Makes 8 servings

Spotted Puppies

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (15 3/4 ounces)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 teaspoons sugar
1 2/3 cups buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl; stir in raisins and sugar. Combine buttermilk and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times with floured hands (dough will be sticky).

Divide dough into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a ball (cover remaining dough to prevent drying). Arrange rolls on a lightly floured baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400° (do not remove rolls from oven); bake an additional 8 minutes or until rolls sound hollow when tapped. Makes 12 servings
