FISH ‘N CHIPS

Pan-Fried Ocean Perch

There isn’t much easier than pan-frying a nice fish filet and serving a heaping pile of French fries on the side. Today we had Ocean Perch, but any kind will work.

INGREDIENTS:
2 Fish Filets (Your choice)
½ cup Panko bread crumbs
4 TBSP grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 egg, beaten
Seasonings: Pepper, garlic powder

PREPARATION:

In a flat bowl or on a paper plate, mix bread crumbs, grated cheese, and seasonings. Dip fish filet in beaten egg, press filet into crumb mixture and fry in a bit of butter until golden brown on both sides and fish flakes when you poke it with a fork.

Serve with lemon wedges, tartar sauce, cole slaw, and French fries.

BLUEBERRY CINNAMON COFFEE CAKE

IMG_4718

It’s blueberry season! Here’s something new to try. I had blueberries in the freezer. I didn’t even thaw them. I took them out when I began making the batter and threw them in when it was time. They are great! This is my old standby coffee cake, you know . . . the one I’ve been making forever. The one with the slightly crispy edges like cornbread and brownies have. Oh yes, I need another piece.

The cake is a quick, throw together operation with a tiny little extra step of making the cinnamon swirl part. The really good news is that once you pour the thick luscious batter into the baking dish, you can use the same bowl to mix the cinnamon mixture.
INGREDIENTS: for an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan. (Feel free to double. You can make one to give away or make mini coffee cakes in a cupcake tin.) NOTE: If doubling, don’t forget to double the streusel.
¼ cup Crisco
¾ cup sugar
1 TBSP sour cream or 1 TBSP soft butter
1 egg
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla
¾ cup milk
1 ½ cup flour
½ tsp salt

STREUSEL PREPARATION:
In the same mixer bowl, mix with a pastry cutter or two forks, or two knives:
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup flour
½ tsp cinnamon
3 TBSP room temperature butter
You want to see small lumps in it. Don’t mix until it’s smooth, or you’ll ruin it.

CAKE PREPARATION:
In mixer bowl, beat Crisco and sugar until light and fluffy. Add sour cream or butter, egg, baking powder, vanilla and mix well. Alternately add milk and flour, mixing until combined. Pour the batter into a prepared baking dish, add the cinnamon mixture, swirl it and get your fork ready.

STREUSEL PREPARATION:

In the same mixer bowl, mix with a pastry cutter or two forks, or two knives:
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup flour
½ tsp cinnamon
3 TBSP room temperature butter
You want to see small lumps in it. Don’t mix until it’s smooth, or you’ll ruin it.

OPTIONAL BLUEBERRIES:
¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 TBSP flour
¼ tsp cinnamon

In small bowl, mix all ingredients and toss gently. After swirling streusel through cake, fold blueberries into cake.

BAKE at 375° F for 25 – 30 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

GLAZE INGREDIENTS:
This is something I’ve eyeballed for years. The measurements are approximate, but between testing to see if it’s drippy enough and dragging your finger through it for a little taste, it won’t be a problem.
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 TBSP butter
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp almond extract
Small dash salt
2 TBSP warm half and half or milk

GLAZE PREPARATION:
In mixer bowl, combine sugar, butter, vanilla and almond extracts along with a quick dash of salt. On low speed, begin adding the half and half until you have a nice drippy glaze. Then beat on medium speed for a minute. Using a large spoon, drizzle this on the cake while the cake is still a little warm, just don’t put it on a hot cake.
NOW . . . How easy was that??? Yep. Pretty easy for all this delicious, moist, cinnamon goodness.

SMOKED BEEF ROAST SANDWICHES

Smoked Beef Roast Sandwich

   If you’ve ever tasted a melt in your mouth smoked beef roast, it’s something you haven’t forgotten. It can be served sliced or on a sandwich piled high with sautéed mushrooms and onions. Here’s how Bob did it.

INGREDIENTS
3 lb beef roast
Brine
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder

PREPARATION

Brine the beef for 24 hours. Drain, season, and smoke over apple wood chunks and charcoal for 3 hours. If you use a larger cut of beef, you’ll have to cook it a little longer.

We served our sandwiches with broccoli salad, tossed salad and cole slaw. It was so good I’m even having a Westover Leftover sandwich right this minute.  French fries would have been great too.  Ohhhhhhh, I should have had French fries.  Too late now!

BBQ PORK OVER CURLY FRIES W/ONIONS AND CHEESE

BBQ pork (2)

     Here’s the newest Westover Leftover! What to do with leftover pork? Whether it is from pork chops, a roast, a tenderloin, or whatever. Here is the answer to something new and delicious! Bob had his on seasoned curly fries. I had a sandwich. SO GOOD!
Simply place the meat in a saucepan with a little water and your favorite BBQ sauce. Of course, we used my Kentucky Bourbon BBQ sauce. Cover, simmer until the meat is falling apart tender. Serve on French Fries with caramelized onions and a slice of cheese, or just make a sandwich! So yummy!
