Cook a pierced potato in the microwave until it’s soft all the way through – about 6-7 minutes total, flipping over every 1-2 minutes. Cut the potato in half, then cut each half into squares. Don’t cut all the way through, just down to the skin. Season with butter, parmesan cheese and Lowry’s seasoning salt, then pop them into the middle rack of your oven set to broil for 10-15 minutes.
Cheesy Corn Cakes - These were a hit! Made for Thanksgiving, without the avocado dip. Used very little oil in the pan because they did get greasy very easily. Also made them smaller than recommended for faster and easier cooking. Recipe made 30-35 patties. They cooled off and were a great poppable side dish for everyone.
Summer Vegetable Tian Made 6/4/2014 and again the next day because it was so good. Added Japanese eggplant and just sliced onions for bottom layer. Also sandwiched transparent thin slices of garlic in between some of the sliced vegetables. Also brushed olive oil over the top of dish before baking to keep it from drying out.
How did I NOT know this? Never boil corn again! Want to know the easiest way to cook corn on the cob? Throw it in the oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Thats it. Leave the husk on, it will trap in the moisture, leaving you with juicy, tender corn. The husk and silk will peel away easily once its cooked. Cut off the large end and it slides right out with no silk.
Fill pot with water then add a stick of salted butter and 1 cup of milk. Bring to a rapid boil. Put ears of corn in turn heat to low simmer for 5-8 minutes. It will be the best corn on the cob you have ever had !!!
