Any blow your mind Recipes?

  1. I sometimes make it with Canadian bacon, sometimes with Prosciutto, and I believe you might get a lot of compliments when serving it with marinated artichoke hearts on the side.

    1. Variations on a theme. Smoked salmon, boar bacon, roasted peppers.

      1. I like poached eggs served on wiener schnitzel with a slice of tomato and hollandaise sauce, all on top of spaetzle...... mmmmmmm.

          Now that sounds crazy good. Do you use homemade spaetzle or store-bought? Any favourite recipes?

          1. re: Lenox637

            over spaetzle!!!! Now that is pretty creative. Gonna have to try that one!

            1. re: The Professor

              Always homemade!! 4 cups flour - 4 eggs - pinch nutmeg - salt to taste and enough whole milk to make the batter a little denser than cake batter. I have a spaetzle maker, they're really cheap, but my mom always used her colander to squeegee the "batter" into slowly boiling, heavily salted water.

              Reminds me of two things.....

              1. Wiener Schnitzel a la Holstein... yes, I know it's a fried egg

              2. Breakfast @ Cracker Barrel.......Chicken Fried Steak with milk gravy and eggs. I'll have to try this with poached eggs next time.

                never been to a Cracker Barrel..... what is it?

                1. re: Lenox637

                  A chain restaurant with a comfort food type menu.

                    Never been to a Cracker Barrel????

                    Regardless of what the food police and chain bashers will tell you, Cracker Barrel is normally a very good place to get a meal when traveling on the road. My very first experience at a Cracker Barrel was during a return drive from Florida on my way home to NJ, and my halfway point to stop for overnight sleep was in Lumberton, North Carolina. I ordered two dishes, Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken and Dumplings. Now, I'll sometimes go there for breakfast before playing golf on my way to western NJ or Pennsylvania, but their lunch and dinner are good in my opinion as well. Any mishaps I believe to be more location specific than the chain itself and it is a welcomed diversion from the usual New Jersey diner experience.......e.g. they always have this hash brown potato casserole concoction with cheese......., plus other sides as grits, biscuits, dumplings, fried okra, collard and fried chicken. It's pretty hard to find those sort of menu items in most Northern New Jersey restaurants.



              2. eggs benedict is our Christmas morning tradition.

                last year, my gramma came down from annapolis, maryland. in honor of her, i made what i called "crabbs benedict".

                english muffin, slice of tomato (i cut it in half crosswise, not from stem to flower, and gently squeeze out the seeds first), a little mashed avocado, jumbo lump crab meat, hollandaise sauce and a light sprinkle of old bay on top.

                it was my best one yet!
