Post  justmecookin on Tue Jun 23, 2009 9:44 am

Fontina, Caramelized-Onion, and Pancetta Pizza

Pizza Dough
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 ounces pancetta (Italian-style bacon) or Canadian bacon, chopped
8 cups sliced onion (about 3 large)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded fontina cheese, divided
Thyme sprigs (optional)
Cracked black pepper (optional)

Prepare the Pizza Dough according to directions. While dough is rising the second time, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add pancetta, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add onions, thyme, salt, and white pepper; cook 25 minutes or until onions are browned, stirring frequently.

Preheat oven to 475°. Brush each prepared pizza crust with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; top each with half of onion mixture. Sprinkle half of cheese over each pizza. Bake at 475° for 9 minutes or until crusts are crisp. Cut each pizza into 8 wedges. Garnish with thyme sprigs and sprinkle with black pepper, if desired. Makes 2 (9-inch) pizzas

Pizza Dough
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dry yeast (about 1/2 package)
3/4 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cooking spray

Dissolve sugar and yeast in 3/4 cup water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Stir 2 cups flour, oil, and salt into yeast mixture to form a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes).

Add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent the dough from sticking. Place dough in large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning dough to coat top. Cover dough, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 40 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Salt and pepper
4 slices bacon (4 oz. total), cut into 1-inch pieces
2 baked pizza crusts (7 to 8 in., 5 oz. each)
1/4 cup cream cheese (2 oz.)
1/4 cup canned diced green chilies
1/2 cup shredded jack cheese
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place in an 8-inch baking pan and coat with about 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until no longer pink at the center of the thickest part (cut to test), about 20 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle, then tear into bite-size chunks. In a small bowl, mix with remaining barbecue sauce.

Meanwhile, in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat, stir bacon until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.

Place pizza crusts on a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. Spread each with about 2 tablespoons cream cheese. Spoon chicken in sauce evenly over both crusts; top with bacon, green chilies, jack cheese, and hot chili flakes. Bake pizzas in a 400° regular or convection oven until cheese is browned and bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a board and cut into wedges. Makes two 8-inch pizzas

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Post  justmecookin on Tue Mar 02, 2010 8:32 pm

Corned Beef and Cabbage

1 corned beef brisket with spice packet (4 to 6 pounds)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 to 3 bay leaves
16 to 24 small potatoes, peeled
8 to 12 medium carrots, halved
1 large head cabbage, cut into wedges
Minced fresh parsley, optional

Horseradish Sauce:
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 to 1-1/2 cups cooking liquid (from brisket)
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup horseradish

Sour Cream anD Mustard Sauce:
1 cups (8 ounces) sour cream
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sugar

Place brisket in a large Dutch oven; cover with water. Add brown sugar and bay leaves. (If spice packet is enclosed with brisket, add it also.) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours.

Add potatoes and carrots. Return to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 30-40 minutes or until meat and vegetables are just tender. If your Dutch oven is not large enough for cabbage to fit, remove potatoes and carrots and keep warm (they can be returned to cooking liquid and heated through before serving).

Add cabbage; cover and cook about 15 minutes or until tender. Discard bay leaves. Remove cabbage and meat. Strain and remove about 1-1/2 cups cooking liquid. Let meat stand a few minutes. Slice meat across the grain. Serve with Horseradish Sauce or Sour cream and Mustard Sauce. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Horseradish Sauce: In a small saucepan, melt butter. Blend in flour. Add 1 cup cooking liquid; stir until smooth. Add vinegar, sugar and horseradish. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Adjust seasoning with additional vinegar, sugar or horseradish if needed. Thin sauce if necessary with the remaining cooking liquid. Makes about 1-1/2 cups.

Sour Cream and Mustard Sauce Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until well blended. Makes 1 cup.
