Get Stuffed. Get Stirred. Get Cooking…Main Course / April 9, 2017
Creating a meal is not unlike the above description. Except my process usually begins standing in front of my open fridge gnawing on a piece of aged cheese. (For inspiration, of course.) while contemplating how I will mix flavors and textures into my latest bling masterpiece. Most of the time I don’t have a grand example to mimic. In fact my entire cooking portfolio is dominated the kind of inspiration based solely on what’s left in the cupboard and veggie drawer.
Not always easy but ALWAYS FUN. In this case I have taken three familiar comfort food combinations and added some new twists.
Now, nearly every cook has a personal recipe for stuffed peppers, dumplings, or pork stir fry, so when something more elegant is just too elusive they have familiar flavors to fall back on. Those mainstays are the core of today’s post.
1. Take my first featured recipe, a vegetable sausage casserole topped with a creamy mushroom sauce and cheddar biscuit dumplings. Looks like something straight out of “Betty Crocker’s most loved recipes” list. I wish she was around to try my version. She just might add it to her repertoire.
