It is December 21, 2009 and it’s four days until Christmas. I finally made it over to the East Coast to visit with family and friends for the holidays. I arrived right on time which was a miracle in itself considering all the snow they have gotten over the past couple of days. I have been talking to my sisiter-n-laws mother, Shelvie, who gave me two recipes off the top of her head. You know, those recipes that you add a little of this and a little of that…
Since I missed posting a blog yesterday I am giving you two recipes in this one… 🙂
First Recipe – Sausage and Cheese Pinwheels
Ground sausage of your choice- Shelvie’s choice Jimmy Dean Sausage
Grated cheese of your choice – Shelvie’s choice is extra sharp cheddar
Pre heat oven to 450 degrees
Follow recipe on Bisquick box for the biscuit recipe. Roll out like a pie crust. Shape should be about 12 inches long and 8 inches wide. Spread your sausage on to dough. (easier if your sausage is at room temperature) sprinkle your grated cheese on top. Roll into log. Slice your log into pinwheel size pieces (about 1/4 inch thich)
Place your pinwheels on cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for approximately 8-10 mintues.
Second Recipe – Chicken Salad
(this was awesome writing down – made my day) 🙂
Hellman’s Mayo (it has to be Hellman’s)
Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Go to your local supermarket and pick up an already made rotisserie chicken. While you are there, pick up a jar of Hellman’s Mayo, celery, and Mrs. Dash’s garlic and herb seasoning. If they have a salad bar you can pick up the celery there and it’s already chopped for you. By the time you get everything home your chicken should be cooled enough to pull all the meat off. Chop into fine pieces
Chop your celery (unless you got it from the salad bar) into fine pieces. Add your Chicken and celery together with you Hellman’s Mayo. Add the mayo to your taste but enough so the mixture holds together. Add Mrs. Dashs’ garlic and herb seasoning to taste.
Chill and serve on your favorite cracker. Shelvie likes Ritz crackers or Wheat thins.
Both of these recipes sound like they would go great with Passaggio Unoaked Chard. Who knows maybe Shelvie will make them over the holidays…sure hope so because they sound great.
