Recipe News: A healthier recipe for monkey bread

I absolutely love the recipe re-dos from Eat Better America. They have a fantastic recipe for zucchini bread that I've made with great results. This month they've rehabbed an Easter favorite -- monkey bread. Be warned -- eating things like monkey bread on a regular basis will not do your weight-loss plans any favors, but have a nibble every now and then -- like on holidays.

Recipe News: Recipe: Ham Panini with Smoked Gruyere and Pear

Ham leftovers are an easy way to crank out fast meals that pack tons of flavor. Just be sure to go easy on the salt. Most hams are cured and brined, which crank up the sodium. Taste the finished dish before adding more salt.

A frittata is an easy choice. Cut the ham into small chunks, then saute with diced onion and bell peppers. When the ham is lightly browned, pour several beaten eggs over it. When the eggs have set on the bottom, top it with cheese and broiler for several minutes.

Or try a ham and cheese... on pasta. Toss finely chopped ham, grated fontina (or other good melting) cheese with warm pasta and just a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water for an all-but-instant mac and cheese. A splash of hot sauce give a nice finish.

Recipe News: Make Your Easter Entertaining Easier With These Recipes

This Easter, impress your friends and family with a delicious dinner buffet that allows you to entertain with ease so you can spend more time with your guests and less time in the kitchen. With a host of recipes from the French's® test kitchens, you can prepare simple appetizers like Crunchy Coconut Shrimp and Crispy Onion Veggies as well as main dishes like Crunchy Onion Chicken and Baked Penne and Ham. Many of these simple-to-prepare recipes take only ten minutes to prepare and cook in thirty minutes or less. The secret: the experts in the test kitchen have discovered that crushed French's French Fried Onions can be used as a delicious coating for a variety of ingredients like chicken, pork, vegetables and fish; and while the coating creates a crispy, crunchy exterior it also locks in natural juices to maintain a moist, tender interior. In addition to using French's French Fried Onions at holiday time, try them for quick everyday recipes to make meal times easier. This simple coating technique can be expanded to incorporate regional and ethnic flavor preferences by adding customized herbs and spices, for example, the basic recipe for Crunchy Onion Chicken becomes Mexican Chicken with the simple addition of chili powder and chopped fresh cilantro to the crushed French Fried Onions or turn a typical weeknight into a "trip" to Thailand by adding some toasted coconut and fresh basil to your coating mixture – use your culinary imagination and every day meals just became exciting again.

Includes recipes for:


  • CRUNCHY COCONUT SHRIMP

  • CRISPY ONION VEGGIES

  • FRENCH'S® CRUNCHY ONION CHICKEN™

  • BAKED PENNE & HAM

Recipe News: Recipe: Chuck Steak Goulash

A budget dinner doesn't have to come at the expense of rich flavors.

Chuck blade steaks, for example, need just a bit of extra love (and time) to be transformed into a tender, tasty and richly seasoned meal, all for about $1.50 per serving.

Cut from the muscular and often tough chuck or shoulder, these affordable steaks do best with a moist-heat cooking method, such as braising, which helps tenderize them. This chuck steak goulash — a simplified version of the Hungarian classic — provides that.

Recipe News: Traditional Irish stew recipe for St. Patrick’s Day

This Irish stew recipe is a traditional peasant food in Ireland. Chunks of leftover meat are added to potatoes and any other root vegetables that might be available and slow cooked to make a tender, tasty stew. The vegetables are filling and healthy, low in fat and calories. Peasants would have made this dish with water, but the Guinness gives an excellent flavor. Beef, chicken, or vegetable broth will also work. This is a good dish for the crock-pot. No browning is required, and after simmering all day, the meat will be very tender. All of the ingredients except the parsley go into the crock-pot together. The parsley gets stirred in at serving time for a fresh flavor and color.
