White Castle Stuffing????? November 23, 2011

Filed under: Side Dish — De and Mi @ 11:41 pm

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I’m going with traditional stuffing again this year. Made in a crockpot o go with my sister’s  smoked Cornish Game hens.  Mmmm!

In my late teens/early twenty’s in the inner city, White Castle was the go to late night place. So when I spotted this unique stuffing recipe in a Sunday circular, I couldn’t resist posting it. If you dare to try, please let us know your thoughts! 

10 white Castle hamburgers (no pickles)
1  1/2 cups dices celery
1  1/4 teaspoons ground thyme
1  1/2 teaspoons ground sage
3/4 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cups chicken broth

In a large mixing bowl, tear the burgers into small pieces and add diced celery and seasonings, tossing lightly. Add chicken broth and toss well. Stuff turkey just before roasting. Makes about 9 cups, which is enough for a 10-12 lb. turkey.


Popovers August 17, 2011

Recipe Review:  I’ve tried many popover recipes. This one from Williams Sonoma gives me the best results – especially when served with honey, walnut butter. Yum!  This recipe makes 12 popovers, so you either need two pans (I use two Willams Sonoma pans) or  let the pans cool after the first batch is finished baking and repeat process. 

4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
6 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk, then whisk in 2 Tablespoons of the melted butter.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt, then whisk in the egg mixture. Whisk vigorously until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Spray the wells of a standard 6-cup popover pan with non-stick cooking spreay. Pour 1/2 teaspoon of the melted butter into each cup. Divide the batter amoung the prepared cups and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake for 15 minutes more. Remove from the oven and invert pan onto wire rack.

Enjoy! Mi
