I’ve acquired many emails inquiring what my household’s favourite dishes are. This week, I made a decision I’d share them with you. I requested my husband and two (grownup) youngsters for his or her all-time favorites. Right here we go!
ANDREA’S FAVORITE ONION RINGS
My daughter is an onion ring aficionado. Annually for her birthday meal, she at all times requests onion rings to associate with no matter I prepare dinner for her. We’ve had onion rings with ribs, lasagna, grilled hen and ribeye steaks. In case you like a thinly sliced, evenly battered onion ring, you’ll love these.
When selecting onions to your onion rings, choose the flattest and largest you’ll find.
• 3 giant yellow onions, thinly sliced and separated into rings
• 3 cups buttermilk
• 1 to 2 tablespoons of your favourite sizzling sauce
• 2 cups self-rising flour
• 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
• Peanut oil
Whisk buttermilk and sizzling sauce collectively in a big bowl. Place onion slices in buttermilk to soak for at the least half-hour. Mix the flour and Creole seasoning collectively in one other giant bowl. Warmth peanut oil in a deep fryer to 375 levels. Utilizing a fork, take away onion rings from buttermilk and dredge (a half dozen or so at a time) in flour and shake off extra. Fry in sizzling oil till nicely browned. Drain on paper towels and evenly salt. Devour instantly.
NATHAN’S FAVORITE CHICKEN POT PIE
This has been my son’s favourite since he was in elementary college. Throughout his highschool soccer taking part in days, he was identified to eat a complete hen pot pie by himself!
• Two pie crusts (both selfmade or store-bought)
For the filling:
• 2 cups shredded cooked hen
• 8 ounces bitter cream
• 1 can cream of hen soup
• 16-ounce bag frozen combined veggies, thawed
• 1 teaspoon freshly floor black pepper
• 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
• 1 egg crushed with 1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 350 levels. Line a pie plate with one of many pie crusts.
Add all elements (besides egg wash) to a big bowl and stir nicely to mix. Fastidiously spoon into pie crust and gently place second pie crust on prime. Both make a beautiful ornamental border for the sides, or do like I did and crimp the sides along with a fork to seal. I name this model “rustic,” which sounds higher than “I can’t make a beautiful ornamental border.” Utilizing a pastry brush, coat all the prime of the pie crust with the egg wash you combined up earlier. Minimize a number of slits within the prime crust with a knife.
With a pointy knife, reduce a number of quarter-inch slits within the prime pie crust. Place in oven and prepare dinner for 35 to 38 minutes. Close to the top of cooking time, verify the crust. You don’t need it to get too brown. If wanted, cowl the sides of the crust with foil throughout the previous few minutes of cooking. Let relaxation 5 minutes earlier than serving.
SWEET HAROLD’S FAVORITE FRIED PORK CHOPS
I knew earlier than I requested him what he would instantly reply when requested for his favourite meal. He completely loves my fried pork chops. You should utilize both boneless or bone-in for this recipe.
• 6 to eight bone-in pork chops
• 1 cup self-rising flour
• Salt and black pepper to style
• 1 cup vegetable oil
Combine flour with salt and pepper on a shallow plate with a fork till blended. Press every pork chop into the flour combination on either side till nicely lined. Warmth oil in a big skillet over excessive warmth till shimmering.
Cook dinner two to 3 pork chops at a time (relying on the scale of skillet) for five to six minutes on both sides. You will have to decrease the warmth to medium-high to manage the browning of the pork chops.
As pork chops are cooked, place on a plate in a heat oven to maintain heat whereas the rest prepare dinner.
