Smokey Stuffed Portabellas

Smokey Stuffed Portabellas

I had a couple of portabellas and some ground beef, so I thought, “Hmmmm….what if?” So here is what I did….
2 large portabella mushrooms, centers removed, membrane scraped out and rinsed well.
2 T olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 lb ground sirloin or chuck
1/4 c shredded mozzarella

2 slices smoked mozzarella cheese
2 T shredded cheddar cheese
2 T diced onion
2 T diced green pepper
1 egg
1 T Worcestershire
1 T soy sauce
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 jar marinara, primavera, or your favorite sauce

Coat mushrooms on both sides with olive oil. Salt and pepper the rounded sides and arrange hollow side up.
Mix meat well with all other ingredients and stuff 1/4 of the meat mixture into each mushroom and pack down slightly.
You can easily make 4 mushrooms with this amount of meat, but I made patties out of the rest and put aside for tomorrow.

I baked them in an air fryer at 350F for 15 minutes. Removed and place into a small greased casserole dish, top with smoked mozzarella and marinara sauce. Bake in preheated oven at 400F for about 10-15 minutes. Top with crushed red pepper flakes.

This was great with green beans! So, go enjoy a little smoky stuffed shroom!!! ~Debbie

Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs
6-8 hard boiled eggs, peeled and rinsed
1 T mayonnaise
1 T yellow mustard
1 tsp pickle juice
1 tsp sugar or Splenda
1/4 dill pickle, diced (bread and butter are really good!)
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 slice crisp bacon, crushed
1/4 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp sweet paprika

Cut eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Mix everything except the paprika until creamy. Put mixture into a baggie, push all egg down into the bag, cut the corner off and pipe into the egg whites. Garnish with a little dill weed and paprika.

Enjoy! ~Debbie

Beef Stew

Our weather is bipolar this time of year: cold one minute, hot the next. With that said, it’s always a good time to throw on a pot of homemade beef stew. The taste and smell takes me back in time to a place full of amazing memories growing up in south Arkansas. Mom’s was always the best, but here is my version…

1 lb. lean beef stew meat

2-3 T olive oil

2 small potatoes, peeled and diced

1 white onion, diced

1/4 bell pepper, diced

3 carrots, peeled and chopped

2 stalks celery, diced

1 can LeSeur peas, drained

1 can whole kernel corn, drained

1 small can sliced mushrooms

1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes

1 small can tomato paste

1/4 c flour

28 oz beef broth

1 T kitchen bouquet

1 tsp Herbs de Province

1 tsp oregano

3 bay leaves

1 tsp garlic powder

1 T soy sauce

1 c dry red wine

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat a heavy Dutch oven, add olive oil until it’s hot and rippling. Add meat and seasonings and stir to coat well. Sauté until evenly browned. Add 2 T flour and stir until thick and coated. Remove meat.

Add 1/2 c wine and deglaze the pot, then add vegetables, sauté until the onions and peppers are soft. Then return the meat, add the remaining flour, stir until soft and thick, and add soy sauce, broth and remaining wine.

Next, add the canned vegetables and kitchen bouquet, bay leaves, bring to a low boil, turn to low, cover and cook for about an hour.

Remove the bay leaves and serve smokin’ hot. This is such great comfort food and perfect for any season! I hope it takes you back in time and warms your soul! have a beautiful weekend! ~Debbie

Smokin’ Hot Salmon Salad

Okay, I am not a big fan of salmon and most of my friends know this about me. With that said, I will say that I grew up eating and rather liking canned salmon with hot pepper sauce (it’s a southern thing, I think), and salmon croquettes (fancy term for “salmon patties”) with ketchup. Maybe that killed the fish taste, I don’t know, but whatever mother served is what we ate, like it or not….except for liver, but that’s another story.

I had some canned salmon in the pantry, and one of my friends had just made some Buffalo Chicken Dip for the Super Bowl that I really liked, so I started thinking, “What if I made something similar with canned salmon?” Much to my surprise, it is better than I would have ever expected. Here is how I made it:

32 oz. canned boneless, skinless salmon, drained and flaked with a fork (I’m sure you could use fresh grilled or even smoked salmon for this)

1 small onion, diced

2 stalks celerey, peeled and diced

1/4 green pepper, diced

1/2 jalepeno pepper, diced (seeds in if you like hot)

1 medium kosher dill pickle, diced

3 T light mayonnaise

1 T ketchup

1 T fresh lemon juice

1 T rice vinegar

1 T Tapatio hot sauce

1-2 tsp Old Bay seasoning

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp fresh ground pepper

1 tsp pickle juice

Assemble all of the diced vegetables in a large bowl, mix well. Add the salmon, mix into the vegetables, then add the wet ingredients which starts binding everything together. Continue mixing and add the spices last. Mix thoroughly and add additional seasonings to your taste preference. If you want wetter salad, simply add more mayo and/or ketchup. Serve on crackers and top with hot sauce and a little fresh lemon juice.

This is some smokin’ hot salmon, and maybe a recipe that I will continue making to get my fish in! Hope you enjoy! ~ Debbie
