Each week I talk with Annie Mitchell on the Sonrise Morning Show about a Bible food or herb. Today we talked about cheese and how important it was in the Bible diet. Homemade cheese was made with curdled milk in Bible days, much like we make some cheeses today.
I wanted to share a couple recipes using cheese. I bet a lot of you have your own hanky panky recipe. Try my version to his yummy, retro appetizer.
And don’t forget to make the sophisticated grilled cheese – perfect alongside a bowl of steamy tomato soup.
Super bowl will be coming up soon so be sure and save these recipes.
I love the fact that this recipe is being embraced by a younger generation of fans. Simple, comfort foods like this are the ones that disappear fast when we’re entertaining. I usually double this and freeze some. Here’s my latest version.
1/2 pound ground sirloin
1/2 pound hot sausage (you can use regular for a mild version)
Few dashes Worcestershire
1 pound cubed Velveeta
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Garlic powder to taste
Party rye rounds
Cook the beef and sausage. I use a potato masher to break the meat up, then stir in rest of ingredients and cook until cheese melts. Serve on party rye or in hollowed out rye round. You can refrigerate this mixture and run the rounds under the broiler to reheat, or reheat mixture in microwave
Sophisticated grilled cheese
Not your ordinary sandwich. We love these.
1 cup each: shredded Swiss and cheddar
1/3 cup mayo
1 tablespoon each: yellow mustard and chopped green or red onion
Spread on bread and grill in butter. Makes 4 sandwiches.
