Paula Deen

Postby Snow-flake on Thu Nov 16, 2006 10:05 pm

I like the food channel.



I just watched Paula Deen doing her Thanksgiving special.



I think I am going to make the sweet potato balls she made. I looked the recipe up and it lookd yummy and easy:



7. Sweet Potato Balls



4 large sweet potatoes

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 teaspoon orange zest

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

2 cups shredded coconut, sweetened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 large marshmallow per potato ball



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, zest and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss the coconut with the sugar and cinnamon. Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating a 2 to 3-inch diameter ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully for the last few minutes of cooking; the expanding marshmallows can cause the potato balls to burst open.







I saw 2 appetizer recipes, that I think I am going to do for my Christmas party:



5. Mini Cheeseburger Puffs



1 pound ground chuck

2 teaspoons steak seasoning

1 teaspoon Paula Deen's Silly Salt*

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 Vidalia onion, minced

1 package puff pastry sheets

20 (1-inch) slices Cheddar



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the first 5 ingredients. Hand-form patty to 1/4 normal burger size, about 2-inches in diameter. In a grooved black skillet, cook burgers to medium. Turn once. Do not overcook.



Roll out thawed puff pastry. Cut 10 (6-inch) even panels. Place burger in center of square and top with 2 slices of cheese. Fold edges up and twist on top. Bake 20 to 25 minutes and serve warm.



* Silly Salt is a blend of salt, dehydrated onion and garlic, spices, soybean oil, and lemon flavor.







and:



4. Bacon-Wrapped Breadsticks



4 1/2-ounce box sesame seed breadsticks

16-ounce package bacon

8-ounce container grated Parmesan



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wrap breadsticks in bacon. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Dredge through Parmesan while hot. Allow to cool and crisp, then serve.

OMG, THE BREADSTICKS!! I just had (I swear) this convo last night about how my mom would make these around Thanksgiving and that I wanted to make them this year! My fiancee and roommate practically drooled over the idea!

I like Paula Deen alot. I have made her Gooey Butter cake, the pumpkin version on one Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I always try to make some pumpkin dessert that isn't necessarily the standard pie.

Paula Deen is awesome. I probably shouldn't have been on this topic right now because I want to make all that stuff, i am starving.
