Thank you to D.L. for sharing this hint…..

 
A good way to reheat biscuits or rolls is to sprinkle them lightly with water and wrap them in foil. Reheat them in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes, and done!

Make those Rolls Special…..

 
Before you put rolls in the oven, make a delicious glaze for their tops. Lightly beat an egg white with a tablespoon of milk and brush on each roll. Everyone will love them!

Today’s Menu: Steak Hoagie Patties w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 010
For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Love these Sausage Links,only 65 calories for 2 links. Then I made some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, toasted 2 slices of healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another really humid day out there again! Not quite as hot, 84 degrees, but it was humid early in the morning and had a couple of passing showers. Not a whole lot to do today, just got caught up on some small jobs around the house. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Steak Hoagie Patties w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

Steak Hoagie Patties w Baked Crinkle Fries 002

While at Kroger yesterday I was in the frozen foods and spotted some J.T.M. Beef Hoagie Patties. It had been quite some time since I’ve had these and they looked good and I grabbed a package of them. Growing up we would have the J.T.M. Burger Patties all the time, and it’s been even longer since I’ve had the Burgers. So after getting a package of the Hoagie Patties I picked up a package of Kroger Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls. I’ll also need some Baby Bella Mushrooms, Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Provolone Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. I’ll also be baking some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries.

 

 

I started by preheating the oven at 400 degrees, I’ll be baking the Fries and toasting the Hoagie Buns. The Fries take 18 minutes and the Buns about 3 minutes.

As I said I’ll be using the J.T.M. Beef Steak Hoagies. They come pre-cooked and frozen so all you have to do is warm them back up. You can bake them, pan fry them, or grill them, I pan fried mine. It took about 3– 4 minutes per side, after flipping them over I added the Provolone Cheese with a minute of cooking time left. As the Hoagies were cooking I sliced up some Mushrooms and sauteed them and in a small sauce pan and I heated up the Sauce in another small sauce pan on medium low.

With everything getting done at the same time I assembled the Hoagie. Started by placing the Cheese covered Hoagie Pattie on the bottom Bun. Next added the Sauce and topped it with the Mushrooms and the top half of the Bun. I’m not a big Beef eater anymore but these are really good! Nice flavor and cook up very easy.

Served it with the baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries along with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Bread or Rolls leftover from dinner or going stale……..

 
A great way to use a stale loaf of bread or rolls is to make croutons! Cut up into blocks, fry up for a minute or so with some butter and oil and sprinkle on seasoning of choice, Garlic Salt and italian Herbs work well. Then toast in the oven! The leftovers can be frozen and used as needed.

A baking hint….

 

Breads and pies bake best and will have the best crust when baked in a dark-colored pan that absorbs heat well. Cookies, biscuits and cakes do better in a shiny pan that reflects the heat for a more delicate browning of the crust.

A lobster roll from “The Lobster Claw” in Bar Harbor, Maine

A traditional lobster roll is a sandwich filled with lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed hot dog bun or similar roll, so that the opening is on the top rather than on the side. There are variations of this sandwich made in other parts of New England, which may contain diced celery or scallion, and mayonnaise. The sandwich may also contain lettuce, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Traditional New England restaurants serve lobster rolls (made with butter, not mayonnaise) with potato chips or french fries on the side.[citation needed] The lobster roll was first originated at a restaurant named Perry’s, in Milford, Connecticut as early as 1929, according to John Mariani’s,

 

“Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink.” Once Perry’s put the new sandwich on its menu, its popularity spread up and down the Connecticut coast, but not far beyond. For those residing in Connecticut, a lobster roll served warm is simply called a “lobster roll” while the lobster roll served cold as it is throughout the rest of the northeast region and the world is called a “lobster salad roll” . The lobster salad roll took off on the Eastern End of Long Island, New York, starting in 1965, pioneered by the Lobster Roll Restaurant The Lobster Roll.

 

 

As far back as 1970, chopped lobster meat heated in drawn butter was served on a hot dog bun at road side stands such as Red’s Eats in Maine, Lobster rolls in the U.S. are associated with the state of Maine, but are also commonly available at seafood restaurants in the other New England states and on Eastern Long Island, where lobster fishing is common. They tend to be virtually unheard-of in landlocked regions (such as the Upper Midwest), where fresh lobster is more expensive and more difficult to obtain.

Lobster rolls prepared in Maine generally have several common characteristics: first, the roll itself is a “New England” or “Frankfurter” roll that is baked slightly differently from a standard hot dog roll, so the sides are flat and can be buttered on the outside and lightly grilled or toasted, and is split on the top instead of the side; second, the lobster meat in the roll is usually served cold, rather than warm or hot; third, there can be a very light spread of mayonnaise inside the bun or tossed with the meat before filling the roll, though usually do not have any other ingredients typical of the “lobster salad” variation in other parts of New England. The lobster meat is usually knuckle, claw, and tail meat chunks, with 4oz of meat (“1/4 pound”) the common advertised serving size.

They are a staple summer meal throughout the Maritime provinces in Canada, particularly Nova Scotia where they may also appear on hamburger buns, baguettes, or other types of bread rolls — even pita pockets. The traditional sides are potato chips and dill pickles.

Save that leftover Bread….

 
Save all kinds of leftover bread, bagels, baguettes, sandwich loaves, rolls, crackers, biscuits, and buzz to very fine crumbs in the food processor. Freeze in self-sealing plastic bags and use for stuffing and toppings.
