    Secret Recipes Of The Bear & Famous

    I checked the Cyburbia archives. There are a lot of "recipe" threads, so I figured, why not start another one (1), kinda prepping for the upcoming 2004 Thanksgiving holiday.

    BEAR'S TURKEY STUFFING (This is so easy and so tasty and so unhealthy!)

    Put all this when completed in a BIG turkey and the remains in a big baking pan and cook 'em both.

    Grab them inards (giblets) from the inside of that turkey. Slice into teeny-tiny pieces and throw 'em in a pan that has about six (6) slabs of margarine simmering.

    Add in a bunch of cut-up fresh celery, fresh mushrooms, fresh green pepper, fresh onions. Sprinkle on a liberal dose of black pepper. Simmer cook all this stuff while you go for the break-bread-up activity.

    Couple loafs of bread: Any kind such as white, wheat, potato. Break that bread into a bunch of small pieces. Throw into a BIG pan.

    This is THE KEY: Get yourself a jar of chicken boullion. Boil some water.
    In a GIANT glass, mix a whole lot of the boullion with the water.

    Throw everything except the boullion into the pan with the bread. Slowly add some of the boullion. Stir it all real good.

    THIS IS THE OTHER KEY: Start to generously sprinkle on sage. Stir it in. Taste it. It will probably need more sage and probably need more of the mixed boullion liquid. Keep adding both till it meets your needs.

    Stuff.

    Eat.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good.

    My stuffing is different.

    Saute apples, celery and onions in butter.
    Break up a loaf of old bread in a big bowl.
    Mix a couple of cups of water and a couple eggs in a cup.
    Pour water mixture and veggie mixture in with the bread.
    Add small amounts of water until all is moist.
    Salt Pepper Sage
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Mine is an old, old family recipe. Dice and saute two medium onions and one German celery. Smash and cude four loaves of bread and add these. Add in the chopped heart and liver and cook on low until the liver browns. Add an egg and salt and pepper. The next morning, stuff it into the turkey.

    This is my one recipe that always gets raves and people begging for more:

    Spinach roll-ups

    1 10-oz. Package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 8-oz. Container sour cream
    1 bunch green onions, chopped
    1 1-oz. Envelope Ranch-style dressing mix
    1 3-0z. jar bacon bits
    9 10-inch flour tortillas

    Combine first 6 ingredients; spread on tortillas. Roll up, jellyroll fashion; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours. Cut into ½ inch thick slices.

    Yield: 6 dozen

    You can also make these and freeze them in plastic wrap for up to 3 months; thaw for an hour, and cut up.

    Thanksgiving is usually thought of as that one meal of the year where one doesn't experiment or try new things and everybody eats the same thing everywhere. But I have found this just isn't so. There are lots of regional variants on the traditional Thanksgiving feast....my wife's family always serves rutabega (must be a Swedish thang). I understand adding chestnuts to the stuffing is popular in some regions. Yams, or sweet potatoes, are particularly popular down south. Personally, I prefer the cranberry jelly that comes out of a can (grew up with it), but the in-laws think eating anything other than whole cranberries is sacrelidge.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Recipe Randoms

    ZG Random.....Nice of you to refer to me as "Jesus Bear" in your last recipe thread poste. Even though I am GOOD......I am not THAT good.

    ZG Random, Part 2.....Katie makes the same recipe for her roll-ups. They are mmmmmmm......goode....... . The "human eating machine" (teenager) devours them so fast that if she made a bunch for a party she has to hide them. He keeps finding the hiding spots.

    Chili Recipe Random

    Two (2) pounds of ground chuck. Fry and drain grease. Put in big pot.
    Dice and add the following: Couple onions, green pepper, red bell pepper.
    Slice and add the following: Big package of fresh mushrooms, using about half of the contents.
    Throw the balance of the package of fresh mushrooms into the big pot.

    Add to the big pot:
    Two (2) large cans of tomato juice.
    One (1) large can of stewed tomatoes.
    One (1) jar of mushrooms.
    One (1) large can of red kidney beans.
    OPTION THAT IS GOODE: One (1) big bag of frozen lima beans.
    One (1) jar of your favorite brand of hot sauce (taco sauce, salsa).

    As it is cooking, sprinkle chili powder on the entire surface so it is black. Stir in.
    Do that again. Stir in.

    Sprinkle in red pepper powder or red paper flakes. Little at a time, to taste.
    Sprinkle in cane sugar. Little at a time, to taste.

    Cook a couple hours.

    Eat with Ritz crackers OR.....
    Place fresh lettuce in a big bowl, break tortilla chips over lettuce, pour in chili.
    Then.....top with cheese strips and nuke in microwave.

    Heaven. Yum.

    Holy crap Bear. Lima beans? No way.


    Another Sunday morning brunch of eggs benedict, strawberries, and sparkling wine. No special recipe. We're getting good with the egg poacher.

    Bump

    Looking for some new, interesting, and easy recipes. I'm having a visitor this weekend that I'm trying to impress. I've got Friday night figured out. We're going to a wine tasting on Saturday afternoon so I'd like to have something light, easy but different when we return. Sunday? Should compliment a long day of football and margaritas by the pool.

    Any suggestions?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    SUPER easy lasagna

    Killer EASY lasagna recipe - NOT LIGHT - sorry just re-read RJ's post
    Need 1/2 Onion, 1 lb of hamburger, 2 egg, small jar of mushrooms, 1/2 bag of shredded cheese, small tub of cottage cheese, lasagna noodles (preferrably no-boil Barilla brand) and a jar or 2 or regular pasta sauce (no meats). Total cost of about $12-15...

    Use 9 x 13 (or 8 x 8 pan), spread thin layer of sauce on bottom of your pan.
    Brown hamburger with half a chopped onion. When brown, add jar of mushrooms.
    While browning burger, mix the cottage cheese with the eggs.
    Begin THIN layering burger/shrom/onion mix cover lightly with cottage cheese/egg mix, add thin layer of sauce on top of that. Then noodles to cover the entire pan. Keep using this methodology until you have 3 or 4 layers then top the last layer with sauce and shredded cheese. Cover in tin foil, bake at 350 for an hour, take the foil off for the last 25 minutes to allow cheese to "brown" if you like.
    Addition:
    Get a loaf of multigrain bread, slice in half, cover the flat sides of both halves well in margarine (it spreads easy), then liberally apply garlic salt - top with shredded cheese if you desire. Put this in when you take the foil off with about 20 min remaining in the lasagna bake.
    Guaran-dam-tee she'll love it.

    Variation:
    Use same ingredients and methodology to do "stuffed shells", although you have to boil (and be more tedious filling) those giant shells. Another awesome pasta dish.

    Good luck and good eats.

    Sloppies

    Another thread mentioned "sloppy joes".....

    Ground chuck (amount determined by how many slops ya making). Brown it and drain fat.
    Cut-up and throw in a big bowl.....onions.
    Cut-up and throw in the same bowl.....green pepper.
    Cut-up and throw in the same bowl.....fresh mushrooms.
    About a cup of oats.....throw in the bowl.

    Put the cooked ground chuck in the bowl. Mix it all up. Add a very liberal amount of black pepper. Mix some more. Throw in a couple eggs. (Less the shells, Jocko.)

    Cook in a frying pan, over medium heat. While it is cooking, stir in liberal amounts of BBQ sauce. I use a brand that is popular in Swanton.....but you can use any brand that is tangy and sweet.

    Stir in a half a cup or so of mustard. Stir in about half a dozen good shakes of Worcestershire sauce. Stir it all and continue to simmer. Then, add a half cup or so of sugar, spread evenly, Stir it in. Taste. If not quite sweet enough, add a little more sugar.

    Eat. Yum.

    Good call on the sloppies Bear. Made them for dinner . Didn't use the oats though, was fine without.

    I've made those tacos before DP, but it only served two.

    Put all this when completed in a BIG turkey and the remains in a big baking pan and cook 'em both.

    Grab them inards (giblets) from the inside of that turkey. Slice into teeny-tiny pieces and throw 'em in a pan that has about six (6) slabs of margarine simmering.

    Add in a bunch of cut-up fresh celery, fresh mushrooms, fresh green pepper, fresh onions. Sprinkle on a liberal dose of black pepper. Simmer cook all this stuff while you go for the break-bread-up activity.

    Couple loafs of bread: Any kind such as white, wheat, potato. Break that bread into a bunch of small pieces. Throw into a BIG pan.

    This is THE KEY: Get yourself a jar of chicken boullion. Boil some water.
    In a GIANT glass, mix a whole lot of the boullion with the water.

    Throw everything except the boullion into the pan with the bread. Slowly add some of the boullion. Stir it all real good.

    THIS IS THE OTHER KEY: Start to generously sprinkle on sage. Stir it in. Taste it. It will probably need more sage and probably need more of the mixed boullion liquid. Keep adding both till it meets your needs.

    Stuff.

    Eat.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good.

    I like how this recipe sounds. I'm going to try use it this Thanksgiving, but I can tell Bear graduated from TasteAsYouGo Culinary Academy. I like the precise measures....."a bunch of", "some", "about", or a "GIANT glass", etc.

    When I make them, I cut or dice the potatoes with skin, add chopped onion, salt and lots of pepper. Fry them in oil (your choice). When they are crispy, pour in some good chicken stock, cover, turn down the heat and let them cook. They will absorb the broth as they steam. When they are done, turn up the heat to crisp them again.

    Peeled russet potatoes, 1/2 a diced onion, salt/pepper to taste, 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves.

    Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut in half lengthwise again. Cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices. Heat oil in a big skillet over medium high heat, add potatoes and onions, seasoning. Fry til starting to brown, then turn and keep doing this until potatoes are mostly browned. If the potatoes aren't cooked all the way through, cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes more.
