  • Jwirlwind,[p]How about some Yorkshire Pudding/Popovers?[p] Beef, Prime Rib, Roast, Yorkshire Pudding, Shishkaknob

    Some of these were from the oven and six were from the egg. If you look closely, the tall ones with the nice brown muffin "stump" and the sort of two-toned gold and brown tops were from the egg and the more all-over browned and shorter ones were from the oven. Too bad I didn't get a side-by-side shot.

    1 1/4 cup Milk
    1 cup All Purpose Flour
    pinch of Salt
    3 eggs

    1 Make sure the eggs and milk are at room temperature.
    2 Lightly mix up the eggs (don't beat them).
    3 Mix in the salt and the milk and stir.
    4 Slowly add the flour and whisk it in.
    5 Let the batter sit at room temp for 30 mins at least. Mine sat for an hour.
    6 Get the egg up to temp 425 dome. Indirect set-up.
    7 Add 1/2 tsp fat (vegetable oil or clear bacon fat) to the bottom of each muffin cup.
    8 Some say that you have to heat the pans and oil until smoking in the oven (egg) before you add the batter.
    9 I've done it this way and I've added the batter to the cups without pre-heating the pans and there was no difference. These ones were done without pre-heating. Fill the cups 2/3 full with the batter and place in the oven/egg for about 30 mins. Let em go until they brown up nicely. I kept an eye on them through the daisy wheel. I increased the temp to 450 or so for the last five mins to get the browning that I wanted.
    10 Just getting ready to come off...

  • Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Bananas, Bourbon and Vanilla[p]Preparation Time: 35 minutes.[p]3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2" cubes
    3 each very ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
    1 cup heavy cream
    1 each small vanilla bean, split and scraped
    1/4 cup honey
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon MakerÕs Mark bourbon
    1 tablespoon soft butter
    2 quarts water
    2 teaspoons salt
    Bring the water and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil, add the potatoes and cook until tender Ð about 15 to 20 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, in a separate pot, combine the cream, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, bananas and orange juice. Bring to a boil and cook on high for 5 minutes. Remove vanilla bean and either purŽe with a mixing wand or mash well with a potato masher.
    When the potatoes are tender, drain well and add to the cream mixture. Cook on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes and mash gently with a spoon leaving some chunks of potato. The mixture will thicken slightly as the potatoes absorb the cream. Stir in the bourbon and the soft butter. Can be held and reheated.

  • Caesar salad, WITH the egg and anchovy.
  • I'd go with a twice-baked potato. I make them with salted butter, a soft cheese like mozzarella or gruyere and horseradish.
