Reviewed grilled beer brats with peppers and onions

Friday, Jun 6, 2014 on

Some very fine brats, maybe the best ever. I used regular bacon, MGD beer, dried thyme and rosemary, Whole Foods' in-store made brats, French's yellow mustard, and left out the parsley. Will leave out the chicken broth next time, because it didn't add much and increased the time needed for the reduction. I simmered them gently for an hour.

Commented on Slow Cooker Shredded Pork

Love it. We didn't have tomato sauce. Have used orange marmalade in the past as in Sandra Lee's recipe. This time a 16 oz jar of Pace medium picante went in. Had light brown sugar, so we added a tbs of molasses. Tossed in an extra tbs of cumin and 2 roasted poblanos from the Pueblo chili festival. Really great in sliders or tortillas.

Found this while trying to recreate a crab noodle casserole mom used to make. Really light and easy. The panko and mushroom topping is great. If you like it saucy, you might want to add some milk and more cheese.

"Terrific. We riffed on it a little to use ingredients on hand. Made a half a recipe for the two of us in a 8" circular glass casserole. Used homemade sourdough, spread with leftover refried beans and sweet Italian sausage. We're at 7000' altitude, cooked covered for 40 minutes, uncovered for 20 minutes. Perfect."

"The proportions are totally off for this recipe. If you're trying to emulate the finished production on the show, make about one-half the filling. You can make your own dough using Giada's simple pizza dough recipe."

"Need the mix. That's where all the baking powder and flavor is. Tried cutting in butter, but it wasn't enough. Looked at ordering the mix. It's only a few bucks a bag, but $13 to ship. Back to Bisquick."
