Classic Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
This is a good recipe to start with. I went to my local butcher shop and got a package of authentic Irish banger sausage. For the recipe, I pan-fried my sausages, then removed them as noted, to sauté the onions, which I did for somewhat less than the five minutes suggested, because we like them to still be crunchy, so long enough just to heat them through. Also, I never buy canned gravy, so I made some pan gravy. I removed the onions from the skillet, added some beef stock that I had in the fridge to and brought that to a boil while stirring with the juices still in the pan. I gradually sprinkled in a bit of Wondra flour to thicken it up just a little and then dropped the onions back into the mixture and stirred everything together. I let the whole thing simmer for another 8-10 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. I prefer to mix the onions into the gravy to give the gravy more of a flavor kick. For the potatoes, I did not add the chicken bouillon; rather, i drizzled a little bit of the beef stock in while I was mashing. When I had mashed the potatoes done and plated, I added the sausage on the potatoes and ladled the gravy mixture over everything. It was yummy!

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I made this today for dinner as a side dish with the smoked pork loin and it was very good. I used lite sour cream and an extra can of whole kernel corn with the red and green peppers in it, and threw in some cajun spice for a bit of extra flavor. It cooked up quite nicely. I cut the sugar in half, but next time I will take the advice of others here and leave it out completely as it really did not need it. I guess everyone enjoyed it -- there was none left. :-)

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
This is a good recipe, and red potatoes work better than the standard baking potatoes I think. I did make some changes. I used only 1/2 lb of bacon to cut out some of the fat and sodium, and only 3 eggs instead of 6. I used chopped green onion instead of standard white onion. Then I also added 1/2 cup of chopped dill pickle and half a cup of shredded lowfat Sargento 3-cheese mix. Finally, instead of mayo (which I don't particularly like) I used a cup of lite ranch dressing, which adds a whole different dimension to the flavor.

Chili Mac

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
I did not have the ground beef, but I did have canned chili with beans, which I used instead of making the ground beef mixture. The beans served to make the meal more substantial and added some extra protein. I also added some leftover black olives from an Italian dinner a few days ago. I garnished a serving with a dollop of sour cream on top, a few slices of jalepeno, and additional sliced black olives. It was a good "pulled outta thin air" dinner.
