Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Sauce
The dessert menu at Brigtsen’s restaurant in New Orleans offers “Bread Pudding du Jour,” which changes with the seasons. This sweet potato version plays well during the holidays………..

Spiced Apple Bread Pudding
This silky apple dessert recipe–a spiced apple bread pudding made with apple cider in place of the usual custard–gets a double hit of apple flavor from both the cider and plenty of sliced tart apples. Mace, the lacy red spice that coats the nutmeg fruit, adds a particularly lovely floral note, but you can substitute nutmeg if you don’t have any mace on hand……………

Breakfast Fruit Bread Pudding
Studded with strawberries, this breakfast recipe is a cross between a baked French toast and a dessert bread pudding. Swap in almost any fruit depending on what’s in season. Although we typically advocate using whole-grain bread, we stuck with challah for this recipe, because the results are so luscious………….

One of America’s Favorites – Club Sandwich

Club Sandwich

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich of bread (occasionally toasted), sliced cooked poultry, or fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. It is often cut into quarters or halves and held together by cocktail sticks. Modern versions frequently have two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread.

The club sandwich may have originated at the Union Club of New York City. The earliest known reference to the sandwich, an article that appeared in The Evening World on November 18, 1889, is also an early recipe; “Have you tried a Union Club sandwich yet? Two toasted pieces of Graham bread, with a layer of turkey or chicken and ham between them, served warm. Several other early references also credit the chef of the Union Club with creating the sandwich.

Other sources, however, find the origin of the club sandwich to be up for debate. Another theory is that the club sandwich was invented in an exclusive Saratoga Springs, New York, gambling club in the late 19th century.

The sandwich is known to have appeared on U.S. restaurant menus as far back as 1899. The earliest reference to the sandwich in published fiction is from Conversations of a Chorus Girl, a 1903 book by Ray Cardell. Historically, club sandwiches featured slices of chicken, but with time, turkey has become increasingly common.

As with a BLT, toasted white bread is standard, along with iceberg lettuce, bacon, and tomatoes. The sandwich is traditionally dressed with mayonnaise. Variations, however, on the traditional club sandwich abound. Some vary the protein, for example, a “breakfast club” that includes eggs or a “roast beef club.” Others include ham (instead of, or in addition to bacon) and/or cheese slices. Vegetarian club sandwiches often include hummus, avocado or spinach, as well as substitute the real bacon with a vegetarian alternative. Mustard and sometimes honey mustard are common condiments. Upscale variations include, for example, the oyster club, the salmon club, and Dungeness crab melt.

The sandwich is commonly served with an accompaniment of either coleslaw, or potato salad, and often garnished with a pickle. The coleslaw or potato salad is often reduced to a “garnish” portion, when the primary accompaniment is an order of french fries or potato chips. Due to high fat and carb content from the bread, bacon and dressing, club sandwiches have sometimes been criticized as unhealthy. In 2000, Burger King came under fire for its chicken club, which contained 700 calories, 44 grams of fat (nine of them saturated), and 1,300 milligrams of sodium, as well as the trans fat from the fryer shortening.

Smoky Mushroom Bread Pudding with Three Cheeses
Bread pudding is one of the comfort foods. This savory version features smoked cheddar, processed cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, and can be served as a satisfying meatless entrée or hearty side dish.

Recipe Ingredients:
8 slices firm textured bread, not sourdough
2 tablespoons butter – divided use
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped unevenly
Salt and pepper
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon dried (powdered) mustard
Dash hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco™
3 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1/2 cup shredded Wisconsin Smoked Cheddar cheese
4 slices (3 ounces) diced Wisconsin American processed cheese
1/2 cup Wisconsin Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated

Cooking Directions:
1 – Trim the crusts from the bread and place half the slices in an oblong baking dish, about 10 inches in length. Cut the bread to cover the bottom of the casserole. Reserve remaining slices.
2 – Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
3 – Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a deep, large skillet and add the onion. Crumble the oregano and thyme over the onion and mix. Cook the onion over low/medium heat until it is soft, about 12 minutes. Add the remaining butter and mushrooms. Stir so the mushrooms are coated. Cook the mushrooms for about 5 minutes, until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
4 – In a large bowl, whisk the milk, dried mustard, hot pepper sauce and eggs. Stir in green onions. In another bowl, mix the cheeses.
5 – Spoon the mushroom mixture over the bread in the casserole. Layer with half the cheese. Place remaining bread slices over and top with remaining cheese. Pour milk mixture over all. Cover with foil. Bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15 minutes longer.
6 – Serve hot.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

One of America’s Favorites – Texas Toast

A slice of Texas toast on top of a bagged loaf of bread.

Texas toast is a toasted bread with butter, and often garlic, that is often made from a type of packaged bread that has been sliced at double the average thickness of most sliced breads. The Texas toast loaf itself is often more squarish compared to most sliced breads which have a more curved side and top. While Texas toast bread can be used in the same manner as ordinary bread slices such as in sandwiches, it is especially useful for dishes involving liquids, such as barbecue sauce, or where extra thickness could improve the product, such as French toast. In addition, the often increased thickness of the slices of Texas toast lets it retain moisture and softness better than regular sliced bread. It is usually a white bread although there are whole wheat varieties. Producers of Texas toast in the United States include Franz Bakery, Mrs. Baird’s, and Safeway/Lucerne Foods.

Popular in Texas and its bordering states, Texas toast is often served as a side with southern-style dishes such as chicken fried steak, fried catfish, or BBQ. Texas toast can also be used when making toasted sandwiches.

The actual toast itself is made by putting butter or margarine on both sides of the bread and broiling or grilling it until it is a lightly golden brown. Depending on the recipe, the spread may contain seasonings including garlic, yielding a form of garlic bread. The toast may include cheese on one or both sides, similar to an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich.

The best-selling varieties of Texas toast are frozen breads, sold with a garlic or garlic and cheese spread which is applied immediately after baking. The best selling brands are the New York Brand of the T. Marzetti Company, Pepperidge Farm, and Coles.

Mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheese Texas toasts

Some recipes suggest regular or thick-sliced bread be cooked in a frying pan alongside fried steak, bacon, or other meat product in order to absorb the grease from the meat (cf. fried bread).

One claimant to the invention of Texas toast is Kirby’s Pig Stand. The once-thriving chain, whose heyday in the 1940s saw over 100 locations across the United States, also claims to be the originator of the onion ring. Texas toast may have been first created in 1946 at the Pig Stand in Denton, Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook, Wiley W. W. Cross, suggested buttering and grilling them as a solution. Another Pig Stand cook in Beaumont, Texas claimed he created the idea of grilling the bread. W.W.W. Cross is also credited for combining the Texas toast with chicken fried steak to create Kirby’s Pig Stand’s famous Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich.

Healthy Greek Recipes

Find healthy, delicious Greek recipes including Greek desserts, salads, soups, chicken, moussaka and pasta. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Greek Salad with Sardines
The fresh, tangy elements of a Greek salad–tomato, cucumber, feta, olives and lemony vinaigrette–pair well with rich-tasting sardines. Look for sardines with skin and bones (which are edible) as they have more than four times the amount of calcium as skinless, boneless sardines. If you’re lucky enough to have fresh sardines available in your supermarket, try them in place of the canned sardines. Lightly dredge them in salt-and-pepper-seasoned flour and sauté them in a little olive oil…………

Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers
We steam brightly colored bell peppers in the microwave to save time and then stuff them with orzo, spinach and feta. This basic recipe will work with almost any filling–try substituting different types of cheese, herbs or beans. Serve with whole-wheat pita bread and cucumber salad…………….

Greek Chicken and Vegetable Ragout
Chicken thighs stay moist and succulent during slow cooking, infusing the accompanying vegetables with superb flavor. This easy braise has a luxurious finish of avgolémono, a versatile Greek sauce made with egg, lemon and fresh dill…………..

Freezing Bread Will Save You Money…………

If you do not eat bread that often and don’t want to throw away the leftover every time it goes bad, why not save it in the freezer? Freezing bread is super easy, it doesn’t affect the flavor, and the best thing is that you will have fresh bread available at any time. Plastic packaging, freezer bags, airtight containers or heavy-duty aluminum foil work really good to package bread before freezing. Cakes and home-baked goodies can also be frozen! P.S. Bread is only well preserved when stored in the freezer, not in the fridge. Now who doesn’t like to save money?
