Swedish Meatballs Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup warm milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth, low sodium or homemade
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, optional
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated on a Microplane or minced
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch cloves
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed for drizzling
  • Chopped fresh parsley or dill, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, soak bread crumbs in warm milk while you prepare the onions.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Stir in onions and a pinch of salt and cook until pale golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer half the onions to a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Prepare sauce: Add brandy to skillet with onions and ignite with a long match or igniter (or if you’re using a gas stove, just swirl pan, brandy should catch fire). Let flame die down, then add the remaining butter, letting it melt. Sprinkle in flour. Sauté until flour browns, about 3 minutes. Whisk in broth, cream and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Simmer, whisking, until reduced to a sauce, about 5 minutes. Add mustard, if you like, and season with more salt, if needed.
  4. To large bowl with onion, add remaining 1 3/4 teaspoons salt, soaked bread crumbs, beef, pork, eggs, garlic, pepper, allspice, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Roll into 1-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons each), placing them on one or two rimmed baking sheets as you go.
  5. Heat broiler. Drizzle meatballs with oil. Broil meatballs, switching pans’ positions if using more than one so they both get close to the broiler, until well browned all over, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with gravy, garnished with herbs.

  • 3 to 4 tbsp (45 to 60 mL) ice cold water

Classic Butter Tarts Recipe

Directions

  1. In large bowl, whisk flour with salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender or rub through fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. In small bowl, whisk egg yolk with vinegar and 3 tbsp (45 mL) water. Stir into the flour mixture until dough just comes together. Do not overwork. Stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) more water if needed. Form dough into a flattened disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hr. 
  2. Roll dough on lightly floured work surface. Using 4-in. (10-cm) round cutter, cut into 12 rounds, rerolling scraps as needed. Fit each round into standard muffin tins. Chill 10 min. in freezer. 
  3. Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Set rack to lowest position. To make filling, in bowl, whisk corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, vinegar and salt until blended. Spoon filling into pastry shells 3/4 full. Place muffin tin on baking sheet lined with parchment or foil to catch drips.
  4. Bake 18 to 20 min. or until filling is puffed and bubbly and pastry is golden brown. Transfer muffin tin to a wire rack. Let stand 5 min. Run paring knife around tarts to loosen. Carefully slide metal spatula under tarts to remove. Transfer tarts to rack to cool completely.

Apple Pie Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) all-purpose flour, plus 2 tbsp (30 mL) for filling and more for dusting
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 tsp (4 mL) salt, divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 4 cups (1 L) peeled, cored, finely diced apples (about 4 apples)
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

  1. In food processor, combine 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) flour, sugar, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt. Pulse until blended. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) cold water and pulse just until dough forms and holds together when squeezed between fingers. If mixture is too crumbly, pulse in 1 tbsp (15 mL) cold water at a time to moisten. Transfer to lightly floured work surface. Shape into two large discs; wrap in plastic. Chill 30 min.
  2. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, combine apples, 2 tbsp (30 mL) flour, 1/4 cup (60 mL) water, brown sugar, lemon juice, 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 min. until apples are tender and juices are thickened. Transfer mixture into bowl; cool slightly, cover and chill.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. On lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disc of dough to 1/8-in. (3-mm) thickness. Using 2 1/2-in. (6.5-cm) round cutter, cut 16 dough rounds. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover and chill. Roll out second dough disc into 1/8-in. (3-mm) thick rectangle. Using sharp knife or pizza cutter, slice 96 strips of dough, each 4 in. X 1/4 in. (10 cm X 5 mm) — each cookie requires 6 strips. Remove dough rounds from fridge; brush edges with beaten egg. Top each round with 1 tbsp (15 mL) chilled apple mixture, leaving thin border around edges. Press ends of 3 dough strips along “left” edge of dough round (fold strips away from filling). Press ends of another 3 strips along “bottom” edge of dough round (at 90 degrees from first 3 strips), also fold off filling. To weave lattice, lay middle strip from “left” edge onto filling, then lay “bottom” edge strip farthest on left onto filling. Next, lay top and bottom “left” edge strips onto filling. Continue weaving strips under and over each other to create lattice. Firmly press down strips at edges of cookie. Trim off excess dough. Make 16 cookies.
  4. Brush remaining egg wash over lattice tops. Cover and refrigerate cookies 30 min. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake 25 to 30 min., until cookies are golden brown and filling is bubbling. Cool completely on wire rack.

Weiner Schnitzel Recipe

Jordon used to enjoy these while attending Aldersgate College and it took me forever to find the recipe but now that I have, I am posting it here.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless pork cutlets (the thinner the better)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Vegetable or Canola Oil for cooking

Directions

  1. Pound the pork cutlets to 1/4-1/8 inch thickness (the thinner the better), then cut a couple of small slits around the edges of the cutlets with a sharp knife to prevent curling when cooking.
  2. Combine flour, seasoned salt and pepper on a large plate. Combine the egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs and paprika on a large plate. Dredge the cutlets in the seasoned flour, then dip the cutlets in the egg mixture, then into the bread crumbs and paprika mixture.
  3. Place breaded cutlets on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for several hours. (Keep in fridge for at least an hour…this is the secret to making a great schnitzel. It gives the breading time to bind and ensures a nice, even and crispy coating).
  4. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a large skillet. Sauté the cutlets for 6-8 minutes on each side or until coating is nicely golden. (Make sure cutlets have enough room to lay flat. Do in two batches if necessary). Take care not to piece the breading with a fork, to keep the oil from invading the inside.
  5. Remove the cutlets form the skillet and place on a heated platter to keep warm until serving.

Smoky Mac and Cheese Bites Recipe

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Brush 24 mini-muffin tins with olive oil. Sprinkle bottom of each cup with 1/2 tsp (2 mL) panko.
  3. In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook 1 min. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Continue whisking while bringing to a boil; simmer 5 min., or until thickened. Whisk in smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in each of the following, mixing in each ingredient before adding the next: 2 cups (500 mL) cheese, chives and egg yolk. Stir in drained cooked pasta; mix well.
  4. Fill prepared mini muffin tins with macaroni and cheese mixture. Sprinkle top of each macaroni and cheese bite with remaining panko and cheese.

Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

Directions

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 2 tsp hot English mustard or Dijon (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Mix in the salt and a few cracks of black pepper. Create a well in the flour and add the eggs, milk, cold water and mustard. Mix well. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. If there are lumps strain through a fine sieve into a jug for pouring. The consistency should be like whipping cream; if it is too thick, pour in a bit more milk.
  3. Divide the vegetable oil between a 12-tin muffin tray and place in the preheated oven for at least 5 minutes. It is really important that the oil is sizzling hot, almost smoking.
  4. Working quickly, pull the tin out of the oven and fill the muffin holes ¾ full of batter. If you want giant Yorkies, fill them right to the top (you’ll just have less). Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. The puds should be golden brown and crispy. If they’re not crispy, they will sink as soon as they come out of the oven.
