Notes

You can substitute the ground beef for healthier ground chicken or turkey or for shredded chicken.

You can make this vegetarian by used plant-based meat.

You can make this vegan by going one step further and substituting with a vegan cheese alternative.

This recipe is naturally gluten-free, BUT, as always you need to check the labels on all of your brands. Old El Paso enchilada sauce doesn't use a wheat thickener, but it's made in a factory where wheat products are produced. Same with the naturally gluten-free corn tortillas.

Any special plans for the 2020 Memorial Day weekend ?   Family gatherings of 10 or less with masks ?  Fireworks ?  Some good FOOD ?

And do remember the meaning of the holiday remembering the Americans who fought and some gave all for our country.

For Friday and Saturday meals we were hungry for pasta but we're planning on meatloaf so what to do.......easy make meatballs with the meatloaf mix.....but we didn't want to bother with meatballs......easy again:

OUR EASY ROTINI PASTA BOLOGNESE with QUICKIE BOLOGNESE STYLE MEAT SAUCE

Start with meatloaf mix we like beef, pork and veal which also makes good meatballs -or- good meat sauce.  

Brown the meat in a skillet reserve in a bowl then we use a variation of the barefoot contessa Ina Garten's recipe for spaghetti sauce look it up for quantities.

It's basically EVOO, one onion, minced garlic, 1/2 cup red wine, crushed tomatoes, parsley, salt, pepper -plus- we add one jar of Ragu or Prego spaghetti sauce (for extra sauce).

Combine meat and sauce in a big fry pan and heat until it is warm throughout.

Make your favorite pasta like angel hair, linguini or my favorite like penne or today ROTINI according to directions.

We keep pasta and sauce separate for leftovers the next day or combine them. Top with freshly grated Parmesan and/or my favorite Romano.

Serve with your choice olives, Italian bread and butter, your favorite wine (mine is the same Ruinite Lambrusco in the sauce).  ENJOY for two days !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Sunday or Monday we're grilling ribeye steaks and baked potatoes with butter and sour cream S&P and a green veggie. Cold Sam Adams Boston Lager to finish.

Bon appetit !

Want to try something delicious and easy ?

Whole Roasted Cauliflower With Butter Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • Fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cups (1l) vegetable or chicken stock, more or less, depending on the size of the cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup (70)g melted butter
  • Fresh cracked pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200°C). Trim the bottom of the cauliflower and remove all the leaves and the stem, but without breaking apart. Give it a quick rinse and pat dry.
  2. Place the whole cauliflower in a pot and cover with stock, add fresh thyme and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer for 12 minutes.
  3. Drain and transfer the cauliflower head in a cast iron skillet or any oven proof pan. Ladle a little of the cooking stock over the cauliflower then drizzle with melted butter on top. Sprinkle with fresh thyme and pepper.
  4. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of your cauliflower, until golden. Baste with cooking juice from time to time. Check with a knife, if it slides in easily, then it’s cooked. You can broil for an extra 2 minutes if you want to give it a bit more color, but keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
  5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh thyme. Slice, and serve with an extra drizzle of the buttery cooking juices.

I ran across this article on cooking the perfect burger and would like to hear your ideas on:   

The Art of the Perfect Burger

By Ezra Brooks Bourbon May 21, 2020 | Lifestyle

 

While the Fourth of July may look a little different in 2020, there’s one thing that’s a given — the all-American burger is a staple for that day. As it stands, it’s the undisputed star of any summer grilling menu, and with a few simple steps, you can ensure you’re putting a perfect burger on everyone’s plate.

 

First off, if you’re new to grilling, review our basic techniques suggestions here. But also keep in mind that if a grill isn’t available, you can flip a great burger right out of your kitchen skillet, too.

Burger Trifecta
Everyone thinks they’re a burger expert, which is why one man’s perfectly cooked burger may be another’s overdone hockey puck. And while there may indeed be a double-decker venison burger stacked with bleu cheese, avocado, bacon, and portobello mushroom in your culinary future, it’s better to just get the three basics right first — burger, bun, and the all-important condiments. Start simple and all will be well. The most important thing is to think fresh: steer clear of pre-packaged burgers and head to the local bakery for the buns.

Meet the Meat
A great burger is all about the meat, and the best meat will have a decent amount of fat in it to keep it juicy after cooking. You have choices here, but you can’t go wrong with buying ground beef chuck at the meat counter.

When you’re ready to make your burgers, gently form round patties of about six ounces each, or slightly larger than those fresh buns you have (to allow for shrinkage during cooking). Again, emphasis on gently — you want the patties loose, as this makes for a juicier burger. Don’t pack them into tightly formed patties. Note: Some people suggest mixing an egg or breadcrumbs with the meat as a binding agent — we don’t. We like the meat to stand on its own. Plus, overhandling the meat with lots of aggressive mixing just makes your burger less tender.

A classic tip is to make to a small thumb indentation in the middle of the burger to keep it flat while cooking, rather than plumping up and tempting you to press your spatula down on the patty while it’s on the grill. (That just squeezes the juices out of the meat, so don’t do it.)

Lastly, don’t forget to liberally season the burgers with salt (we prefer kosher salt, as the flakes are bigger) and pepper before placing them on a well-seasoned grill.

Bring the Heat
Cook the burgers on medium-high to high heat and flip as seldom as possible. About four minutes a side should put you in medium territory. If you’re cooking a bunch of burgers to different orders plan ahead: divide the grill into sections, put the well-done order on first, then medium, then rare, and take them off in reverse order.

Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger
While there are a variety of cheeses to choose from, a classic cheeseburger really requires the cheese slice to be melted over the burger in the final moments of cooking. American cheese is the hands-down go-to standard, but cheese is your launching pad for future experimentation.

Stacking It Up
To toast or not to toast the bun is also a personal choice. If you are grilling a lot of burgers it can get hectic attending to double the number of bun halves as well. Consider browning them slowly in the oven instead. We like a toasted bun because it’s less likely to fall apart as easily.

When it comes to actually building the burger, there is no real wrong way. But there are better ways.  Our personal preference is placing lettuce on the bottom bun first, followed by pickles and onions, then the meat — the lettuce on bottom helps prevent the meat juices from soaking the bottom bun and turning your burger into a soggy mess. If you like tomato, that should go on top of the meat — again, you’re keeping juice away from the bottom bun, plus, if you have cheese on top of your burger, the tomato melds with the melted cheese and has less of a tendency to slide off your burger (see, there is an art to this).

Plenty of people prefer to build their burgers with all the toppings on top of the burger, though, so to each their own. If you’re doing that with a cheeseburger, if you put your patty cheese-side down on the lower bun, that can help prevent a soggy bottom bun as well.

Burgers and Bourbon
Even a basic burger is a juicy taste extravaganza, and a sturdy bourbon will be the best accompaniment. That’s why we opt for the 117 proof, barrel strength of Old Ezra 7 Year to sip alongside our best grilled creations. The mixture of America’s favorite meal and the rich complexities of Old Ezra 7 Year may just prompt a call for seconds.

So what can be better than a burger hot off the grill ?  Remember GAMEDAY meals and tailgating may be coming up soon.   Ummmmm, bon appetit !
