Tender gnocchi in rich, rustic sauce is a comforting dinner classic – especially when enjoyed during colder weather months. Arrabbiata is a fiery tomato-based pasta sauce so be sure to add chili pepper flakes – either simmered in the sauce or made available for sprinkling at the table.
Top these appetizer-sized croquettes with herbed sour cream – with or without an additional piece of cooked bacon as garnish – and serve on a platter at a buffet table or as passed canapes. Feel free to double the first five ingredients as you’ll have more of the breading ingredients than is needed for this number of croquettes.
This creative breakfast entrée features over-easy eggs nestled in crisp onion rings with a well-seasoned twist on traditional hash browns. Serve as is, pair with sausages or bacon, or top grilled strip loin steak with an onion ring-wrapped fried egg for brunch or dinner. Go with either one or two eggs per order along with some of the seasoned hash – this recipe makes enough hash browns for four servings. Onion rings can be baked ahead of time then popped into the skillet for finishing to order with fried eggs.
For dinner or as a hearty lunch, this comforting casserole is perfect as a meatless main or served alongside roasted chicken. You may wish to blanch vegetables first to speed cook time along. Cooked potato wedges can be halved before casserole is baked for more evenly sized ingredients. The Parmesan cheese is optional, or you may choose to offer it on the side for sprinkling on at the table.
For lunch, dinner or as a late-night snack, this golden crust – made with potatoes in place of the usual dough – is a crisp and creative base for any and all of your favourite pizza toppings. Try topping with pizza sauce, pepperoni, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers and shredded mozzarella; bake until bubbly, then sprinkle with sliced green onions before slicing into wedges. Or, for an innovative breakfast pizza, top with shredded Cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon and sliced green onions.
