Stuffed Baguette

Stuffed Baguette
Stuffed Baguette A hollowed baguette obviously makes a perfect shell for any filling you are in the mood for. And once stuffed and properly chilled, it becomes a neat appetizer. This particular one is filled with all my favorite things: goat cheese/cream cheese, sun dried tomatoes, olives, spicy salami, crunchy bell pepper, and fresh herbs. Makes one 12-inch long baguette; about 24 slices Ingredients: Baguette about 14-inch long8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature 4 oz fresh goat cheese 1 large garlic clove, minced ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper (about 1 medium) ½ cup finely chopped sun dried tomatoes in olive oil¼ cup finely chopped Kalamata olives 2 oz finely chopped spicy salami About 2 tbsp minced Italian parsley About 1 tsp minced fresh thyme Freshly ground black pepper Salt to taste (very unlikely since there’re plenty of salty ingredients) Preparation: Slice off both ends of the baguette. Using an electric mixer beat the cream cheese until smooth and lump-free.

bell'alimento authentic Italian cuisine Cheese Pinwheel Rolls Sooner or later, all my conversations inevitably turn to food. Don’t believe me? Call me up sometime and try to, say, sell me some insurance. I guarantee that before we get off the phone, I’ll be giving you my recipe for blackberry jam. Perfect example: I was in a meeting a few weeks ago at the office. What was the best way to make them? Ah, the Frankenroll This recipe borrows heavily from two fairly unrelated things. To make these rolls, spread pizza dough liberally with melted butter, sprinkle it with cheese and spices, roll it up like a stromboli—then slice and bake like a pan of cinnamon buns. The result? Fill them however you like The best part about these rolls? This is what I always refer to as a Sliding-Scale Recipe. You can toss it together with a ball of pre-made dough and a bag of shredded cheese from the grocery store—or you can go all out and make the dough from scratch and grate your favorite cheeses by hand. I like to throw these rolls together on a weeknight. Bake the rolls

Homemade Onion Rings « Straight from the Farm February 23, 2010 at 10:28 pm Jennie Oh the humble onion. How often I have overlooked thee in my winter local food stores. You might ramp up the flavor in a soup or an omelet, nevertheless I just wasn’t thinking about what you might do as the star of the show. But as we enter the “leanest month” – March – for locavores, I gave you a piercing stare as you hung there in your little mesh bags from a peg in my dry cool dark basement where you hold up indefinitely without a peep of complaint. What can I do with you? Caramelized onions or French onion soup would perhaps be more predictable fates for a large stash of onions like that leftover from my plentiful onion harvest in the garden last summer. I love onion rings with that crispy salty outside and that soft sweet onion on the inside. Unfortunately I don’t have the physique to get away with eating fried foods in any great quantity. Besides burning the first batch, I declare these a solid success! Cut the onions into a thick rings.

Mozzarella Sticks When I told my friends I was planning on making homemade mozzarella sticks for a guy’s weekend out of town the idea was met with a profound lack of enthusiasm. Everybody knows that I like to experiment in the kitchen, but somehow the idea of making a bar food staple like mozzarella sticks from scratch seemed like a complete waste of time to the group. After being lectured about the innumerable brands available in the freezer section at the grocery store and a heated debate about whether marinara or ranch is the better dipping accompaniment, I decided to risk further heckling and see if I couldn’t one-up T.G.I. It might have been the alcohol, but the first batch was gone within a matter of seconds. With the right breadcrumbs, fragrant Italian spices and an organized assembly line for the essential double-dredging technique, perfect, scratch-made mozzarella sticks can be made at home in no time and with little effort.

They are scrumptious! Dip some in marinara or serve them with a salad and pasta! To push them over the edge of deliciousness, I am going to tuck a little bit of Parmesan cheese in the middle of each roll before I form them into little dough balls next time! I used Trader Joe’s plain pizza dough for this batch! Start by mincing 4 cloves of garlic. While your dough is getting to room temp, get your muffin tin ready and put some oil in a little bowl. Cut the dough into 12 pieces. Put a pinch of garlic on top. Brush the tops with olive oil and place in the oven for 15-18 mins. Here’s what they look like after 17 minutes in my oven. Dip them in a bowl of melted butter and parsley. You have yourself a very delicious little garlic knot/roll. (recipe Real Simple Magazine) Makes 12
