Apple-Sausage Stuffing

Post  doughgirl on Sat Aug 09, 2008 8:48 pm

Apple-Sausage Stuffing

1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
4 medium-size tart red apples (such as Rome or Empire)-unpeeled, cored, and diced
1 7-ounce bag diced mixed dried fruit
2 teaspoons dried sage
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 10-ounce packages frozen Parmesan garlic bread (such as Pepperidge Farm), thawed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup chicken broth

Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking up the meat as it cooks. When it's brown, add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the dried fruit, sage, and nutmeg. Fold in the bread and add the broth.

Lightly butter a 3-quart baking dish or casserole. Spoon in the stuffing. (The stuffing can be made to this point up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Place the stuffing in the oven while the turkey is cooking (or in a preheated 350║ oven) and bake 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden and toasted.

Timesavers: Prediced dried fruit doesn't need chopping. Using prepared garlic bread means one herb fewer to chop and no garlic to mince. Cooking the stuffing separately saves you anxiety over those food-safety warnings about stuffing a raw bird. Makes 10 servings

Roasted Acorn Squash Stuffed and Cheese Tortellini

Post  justmecookin on Tue Sep 02, 2008 10:28 pm

Roasted Acorn Squash Stuffed and Cheese Tortellini

2 medium acorn squash (about 1 pound each)
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups heavy cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 sprig thyme
1 cup grated Parmesan
1/8 tsp. grated nutmeg
1 lb. cheese tortellini (store bought)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Grated parmesan cheese for topping
Fresh sage leaves for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. Split the squash in half (cut lengthwise from top end to bottom end) cutting right through the stem so each half has a piece of stem attached. Scrape out the seeds with a spoon and discard.

Cut a small piece off the rounded bottom to give it a base to sit on. Place the squash halves, cut sides up, on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.

Meanwhile, prepare the tortellini mix. Heat a large pot of salted water to cook the tortellini in. In a separate saucepan heat the heavy cream over medium heat with garlic and thyme and reduce until thick and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Add the nutmeg and parmesan, then melt over low heat.

Cook the tortellini in the boiling water (3-4 minutes for fresh tortellini, or follow directions of brand) and then strain and toss into cream mixture. Use some of the pasta water to thin out sauce if necessary. Season with salt and pepper and then divide amongst cooked squash cups.

Turn the oven up to 400. Sprinkle the tops of squash bowls with grated parmesan and a fresh sage leave and then bake in the oven for a further 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Serves 8

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the casserole
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 pound cheese product, softened
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup grated Cheddar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 by 13-inch casserole. Steam the broccoli until tender, about 10 minutes. In the meantime, melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat and saute the celery, mushrooms, and onion until softened, about 10 minutes; drain. Combine the broccoli and the cooked vegetables in a bowl.

Heat the soup and softened cheese product in a saucepan over low heat until the cheese melts. Pour it over the broccoli mixture. Add the garlic salt and pepper and combine.

Put it into the buttered casserole dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle the top with the grated Cheddar the last 5 minutes of baking. Makes 6 servings

Jacket Potato with Bacon, Mushroom, and Peppercorn Sauce

Post  justmecookin on Tue Sep 09, 2008 8:51 am

Jacket Potato with Bacon, Mushroom, and Peppercorn Sauce

4 medium-sized russet or other baking potatoes, well scrubbed
12 ounces bacon, chopped
8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
1/4 cup brandy
1 tablespoon green peppercorns, drenched in cold water
1 cup cream
Salt and pepper
Butter, for topping

Potato: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prick potatoes with a fork and bake until soft, about 1 hour.

Sauce: Saute bacon, add button mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Pour brandy first into a measuring cup (for safety) and then into the pan and carefully ignite with a long match. After the alcohol burns off and the flame has died, stir in the peppercorns. Stir in the cream and heat through, without boiling. Salt and pepper, to taste.

Cut open baked potatoes. Top each with a spoonful of butter, then cover generously with sauce. Makes 4 servings
