MOVIE BITES – QUIDDITCH PLAYER’S PIE

MOVIE BITES – QUIDDITCH PLAYER’S PIE
Musical pairing – The Quidditch Match by John Williams I am completely in love with the world of Harry Potter. I wear my Gryffindor scarf with pride. I pick up sticks when I’m on walks with my husband just to wave them in the air at him and say “Expelliarmus!” When we visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter last October, I literally went running through the park like some sort of crazed madwoman just to get to the ride “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.” If there was an Olympic record for sprinting toward a theme park ride, I would be polishing the gold right now. So when I went search for Harry Potter-based recipes, I was excited to find so many. Quidditch Pie is one of the many culinary delights that I imagine Molly Weasley bakes in her charming cottage kitchen amidst all of her knitted potholders and dark wooden furniture. She uses magic. Anyone can be a great cook if they can wave a wand at their ingredients. The icing bags I was using were super thin. Related:  Tips & RecetasSidesLoading Bay

Parmesan Roasted Potatoes Recipe Ok fine. I’m officially ready to make the transition to fall. And I thought, what better way to do it than with my all time favorite Parmesan Roasted Potatoes! These are like candy. 100% addictive. I always, without fail, make these with Yukon Gold potatoes because here’s the truth… I’m too lazy to peel the skins off potatoes. This is more a technique rather than a recipe, since you can scale these potatoes up if you’re cooking for a crowd. You’re going to start with some naked potatoes…. Add on all the seasonings… Using your fingers, go ahead and toss everything together…. Put them in the oven for about 15 minutes. Once they are nice and golden and crispy, throw them onto a serving platter…. And then EAT!! And just a public service announcement – make a double batch and then serve them with breakfast the next morning too. Parmesan Roasted Potatoes Ingredients Instructions Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.Place the cubed potatoes into a baking dish.

31 Fun Treats To Make In A Muffin Tin Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch If french fries and onion rings ever got married and had a baby, I think it would be something like this…a potato ring. You have a light and crispy outer coating with a soft potato and caramelized onion center…why? Because we can I guess, who knows…but it’s kind of fun, right?! My boyfriend and his friends have this thing where every super bowl they have a “Deep-Fry Fest” where, well they deep fry everything; so if you’re anything like my boyfriend you now have another “Deep Fry Fest” recipe to use! Two things I can’t stress enough is: 1) the importance of having the potatoes completely coated; no holes please, or the mashed potatoes will pour out of the holes once they hit the oil. 2) the importance of the rings being frozen solid before entering the oil…it just helps with the frying, that’s all. Finally, since ranch is pretty much good with anything it only seemed natural to pair these savory, fried treats with a quick and easy homemade ranch sauce. Directions: 1.

When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. The first players up are: a few Russet potatoes (I’m sure other varieties will work equally as well), Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter. Start by scrubbing your potatoes good and clean. Then, using a sharp knife, make slices across the potato, being sure to stop before you reach its bottom. Cut up your butter. Then do the same with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Next, open the potatoes’ crevices and shove the parmesan and butter, alternating between the two. When they’re done baking, you’re still a few minutes away from cheesy gloriousness! Description
