For those of you who don't know, I'm putting together the cookbook for the upcoming Sunshine State Eggfest again. This is the seventh year I've done this, but I need your recipes in order to make this successful. Please send them to me at wjhall at windstream dot net as soon as you can.
I'm showing a recipe from a past fest so you can see what format I will need (in order to prevent a bunch of editing/typing). Please notice :
1) Recipe Title
2) Forum Handle
3) Ingredients Heading
4) BGE Setup
5) Preparation Heading
Also, it would be nice if you ran a spell checker if possible.
But, if you can't, or don't want to do any of all that stuff I just listed, then just send it on anyway......I'll fix it!! :woohoo:
Big Green Egg Marinara
by Kim Youngblood (Vidalia1)
6 Roma Tomatoes
1 whole Jalapeno (seeds & membrane removed)
1 whole head of Garlic
1 large Onion
1 can (28 oz.) crushed Tomatoes
2 cans (6 oz.) Tomato Paste
2 lbs. of Italian Sausage (mild)
1 Tbls. fresh Basil, chopped
1 Tbls. fresh Oregano, chopped
BGE Set Up :
Set BGE up indirect with the plate setter legs up. Place drip pan on plate setter. Stabilize the temperature at 325°-350°.
Place the jalapeno, garlic and onion in a heavy duty aluminum foil tray or make a boat to place the veggies in. Drizzle olive oil on the jalapeno, garlic & onion, just enough to lightly coat them. Cook the Roma tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, onion & sausages until they are done. All items will easily fit on the grid of a large Big Green Egg.
Cook all items for 30-45 minutes or until done. Rotate at least once during the cook to avoid hot spots. Once the tomatoes are done remove them to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for about 10 minutes. Peel away the skin of the tomatoes and discard the skin. (If using sausages for rustic lasagna set aside 1/2 of sausages to be used later)
Place all of the cooked ingredients in a deep dish pan such as a cast iron dutch oven. Add the canned tomatoes and tomato paste and puree all the ingredients together with an immersible blender. You can also use a regular blender or food processor to blend items together. Add the chopped herbs and stir into the sauce. Cook the sauce uncovered on the BGE at 325°-350° for 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
Notes : Depending on how much you blend the items together this recipe can be used as a chunky marinara or thinned down to be used as a pizza sauce. This recipe can be stored for several days in the refrigerator or frozen for later use. The recipe is also easily doubled to make extra.
