Warm Mushroom Salad

Warm mushroom salads were all the rage when I was a young adult back in the early ’80s. No restaurant with any pretensions to style would have neglected to have one on the menu. Inevitably their popularity waned, but they were often very good salads and are worthy of a come-back. I think they are coming back, and hopefully this …

Bachelor’s Omelette

This recipe caught my eye while I was leafing through Mrs. Norton’s Cook-Book. A little searching showed me that Mrs Norton had pinched it from Mrs. Beeton, almost verbatim. Tsk tsk. To be fair, Mrs. Norton did improve on Mrs. Beeton to the extent of suggesting that the onion Mrs. Beeton called for should be sautéed beforehand, and I agree. …

Quick Pan Chicken Gravy with Incidental Chicken Fingers

Pan-fried chicken fingers barely merit a recipe, but to have them with homemade gravy will take them out of the ordinary. Sometimes I just want gravy! Particularly if there is going to be mashed potatoes. Any bits of barley flour left in the pan will help thicken the gravy, and it adds a very nice crunch to the chicken fingers; …

Russian Mushroom Cutlets

The Russians make about a thousand (my estimate!) versions of cutlets; things chopped up, formed into patties and fried in a skillet. Most of them are variations on the theme of meat, but these mushroom cutlets are a happy exception. Serve them with potato pierogies (or pelmeni, if we are staying strictly Russian), sautéed cabbage and sour cream for complete …

Chicken In Goat Cheese, Mushroom, & Dried Tomato Sauce

It seems to me a sauce this rich and thick is calling out for noodles or rice to mop it up, but good crusty bread would work well too. Mashed potatoes, maybe. This is a party-quality dish, but it goes together in week-night time.  4 to 6 servings45 minutes prep time Make the Sauce:1/4 teaspoon dry rosemary2 teaspoons rubbed oregano1 …

Grilled Mushroom Caesar Salad

This is a recipe I developed over two years ago that never saw the light of day. With BBQ season now upon us I thought would dust it off. There is perhaps nothing I love more that a marinated, grilled oyster mushroom. And certainly everyone will think you’re a fun guy when you make this traditional side salad as the main …

Umami Burgers

These burgers came about from trying to use up the cans of chickpeas in my fridge from making batch after batch of Lemon Meringue Tarts. I first turned to my three go to sources of umami: tomatoes, soy sauce, and mushrooms. For texture, I used barley (like my Tourtière recipe). The end result is a durable (i.e. grillable) and non-mushy …

Sloppy Joes

I’ve done a few versions of Sloppy Joes but the kids never really liked any of them. This recipe is a nice compromise–some lentils, some mushrooms, some veggie ground round–that we all love. INGREDIENTS– 1/3 cup brown lentils, cooked– 1/4 cup olive oil– 2 medium onions, diced– 2 celery ribs, minced– 2 clove garlic, minced– 1 green pepper, chopped– 3 …
