2015: Onion Casserole
  • Chef: Hidemi Walsh

2015: Onion Casserole

Every year, green beans casserole is served for our family Thanksgiving and Christmas party and I pass it because I don’t care for it. But it is one of traditional holiday side dish and I love French-fried onions! So I made this for just myself using my favorite ingredients, onion, almond milk, smoked mozzarella cheese and French-fried onions. Smoky nutty flavored sauce, tender sweet onions and crunchy fried onions in a casserole! When I scoop it up, melting cheese is coming out which gives me extra happiness I just eat this all by myself!

2015: Potato Crock Monsieur Pie
  • Chef: Hidemi Walsh

2015: Potato Crock Monsieur Pie

Quick easy yet the cheesy creamy pie would satisfy you a lot. I wanted to make something for my family holiday party. I always see mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie on the table because everyone loves them. So I decided to combine both and make a one delicious meal to make my big family happy. I have made crock monsieur with mashed potatoes before and it was so good. So I decided to make crock monsieur pie with potato as a substitute for béchamel sauce. Also I used almond milk to add nice nutty flavor. More fun to eat than just mashed potatoes!

2015: Potato, Bacon, and Hickory Smoked Dry Jack Cheese Frittata

I grew up in Del Norte County with Rumiano’s cheese. Now, when my family returns for fishing, crabbing, and family get-togethers, I never leave town without visiting the cheese factory and stocking up on my favorite cheeses. I take them home, grate whatever we don’t eat right away, and freeze the cheese for cooking with later. I’ve been using Rumiano’s Smoked Gouda and plain Gouda and Pepper Jack cheeses with my fresh garden veggies in my frittatas all summer. I have backyard chickens that just began to lay this spring, so I’ve had to come up with tasty ways to use a lot of eggs. I love frittatas because I can vary the ingredients, adding vegetables, omitting or adding meats, but I always use cheese for that creamy texture and flavor. Today, I tried some of Rumiano’s Hickory Smoked Dry Jack with my potato, bacon, and onion frittata, and I love what happened! The flavor of the smoked dry jack really worked well with the potatoes, bacon, and onion! This is an original recipe, and I’ll definitely be getting more Hickory Smoked Dry Jack the next time I’m in town. This dish will be the one I serve to the family on Christmas morning this year!

2015: Savory Wild Blueberry Pizza

This a must try pizza. I know it might sound strange to put wild blueberries on a pizza, but they add a great flavor to this sweet savory pizza. The rosemary adds a nice savory taste that just makes this pizza so delicious. It is simple to make using a store bought crust or using a homemade Focaccia.

2015: Southwest Chorizo Brunch Bake

I am always trying to find quick and easy breakfast and brunch recipes the whole family can enjoy. This casserole is perfect for any occasion and combines the spices of the southwest with the comfort of a hearty morning casserole. The recipe can be spiced up by adding cayenne and hot peppers or mellowed by replacing the tomatoes and green chilies with mild salsa. The versatility and ease of preparation has made this a favorite in my family. To save time on holidays, I like to cook and layer the sausage, tortillas and cheese and onions in the pan the night before. Cover and refrigerate until morning. Then simply whisk the remaining ingredients and bake.
