Kick up your Christmas Dinner another notch with this week’s Meatless Monday Recipe of the Week, Holiday Rosemary Smashed Potatoes. It uses my favorite Potato, the Fingerling Potato. Ad Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Rosemary, Sea Salt, and you are set to go! It’s from one of my favorite sites, PBS/RECIPES website. Which has a great selection of recipes of all cuisines. http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

 

 

Holiday Rosemary Smashed PotatoesPBS

Ingredients
35 to 40 ounces fingerling or baby potatoes, scrubbed
1½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon crushed dried rosemary
½ teaspoon sea salt, plus more as needed

 
Directions
1 – Fit a steamer basket into a medium-sized saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add 2 to 3 inches of cold water to the pot and then add the potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam the potatoes for 10 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and let cool 10 minutes.
2 – While the potatoes cool, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
3 – Add the olive oil, rosemary and sea salt to the cooled potatoes and toss to lightly coat, using a large spoon, letting the excess olive oil and rosemary run to the bottom of the bowl. Arrange the potatoes about 1⁄2-inch apart in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Using a sturdy, flat spatula, “smash” each potato so it is slightly flattened. Brush the tops of the flattened potatoes with the seasoned oil that settled into the bottom of the mixing bowl.
4 – Roast for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and slightly crispy. Season with more sea salt, if desired, while still hot. Let cool 10 minutes and serve warm.

Herb and Spice of the Week – Rosemary

Rosemary in flower

Rosemary in flower

Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers, native to the Mediterranean region. It is a member of the mint family Lamiaceae, which includes many other herbs. The name “rosemary” derives from the Latin for “dew” (ros) and “sea” (marinus), or “dew of the sea”. The plant is also sometimes called anthos, from the ancient Greek word ἄνθος, meaning “flower”. Rosemary has a fibrous root system.

 

 

Rosemary is an aromatic evergreen shrub that has leaves similar to hemlock needles. The leaves are used as a flavoring in foods such as stuffings and roast lamb, pork, chicken and turkey. It is native to the Mediterranean and Asia, but is reasonably hardy in cool climates. It can withstand droughts, surviving a severe lack of water for lengthy periods. Forms range from upright to trailing; the upright forms can reach 1.5 m (5 ft) tall, rarely 2 m (6 ft 7 in). The leaves are evergreen, 2–4 cm (0.8–1.6 in) long and 2–5 mm broad, green above, and white below, with dense, short, woolly hair. The plant flowers in spring and summer in temperate climates, but the plants can be in constant bloom in warm climates; flowers are white, pink, purple or deep blue.

 

 

Rosemary is used as a decorative plant in gardens where it may have pest control effects. The leaves are used to flavor various foods, such as stuffings and roast meats.

 

Flowering rosemary

Flowering rosemary

Since it is attractive and drought-tolerant, rosemary is used as an ornamental plant in gardens and for xeriscape landscaping, especially in regions of Mediterranean climate. It is considered easy to grow and pest-resistant. Rosemary can grow quite large and retain attractiveness for many years, can be pruned into formal shapes and low hedges, and has been used for topiary. It is easily grown in pots. The groundcover cultivars spread widely, with a dense and durable texture.

Rosemary grows on friable loam soil with good drainage in an open, sunny position. It will not withstand waterlogging and some varieties are susceptible to frost. It grows best in neutral to alkaline conditions (pH 7–7.8) with average fertility. It can be propagated from an existing plant by clipping a shoot (from a soft new growth) 10–15 cm (4–6 in) long, stripping a few leaves from the bottom, and planting it directly into soil.

 

 

Dried Rosemary

Dried Rosemary

Fresh or dried leaves are used in traditional Italian cuisine. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods. Herbal tea can be made from the leaves. When roasted with meats or vegetables, the leaves impart a mustard-like aroma with an additional fragrance of charred wood compatible with barbecued foods.

In amounts typically used to flavor foods, such as one teaspoon (1 gram), rosemary provides no nutritional value. Rosemary extract has been shown to improve the shelf life and heat stability of omega 3-rich oils which are prone to rancidity.

 

 

Rosemary oil is used for purposes of fragrant bodily perfumes or to emit an aroma into a room. It is also burnt as incense, and used in shampoos and cleaning products.

Turkey Sausage and Cheese Crescent Balls 008

Made an Appetizer/Snack for the family today, Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls. Found this recipe idea on a Pillsbury Recipes Email. Love getting these recipe emails everyday found many a recipe from these.

 

 

 

I changed 3 ingredients from the original recipe to cut back on the Calories, Carbs, and Fat. I’m using Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage instead of Pork Sausage, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar instead of regular Cheese, and I used Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls instead of the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Cutting Calories, Carbs, and Fat where you can all adds up!

 

 

Turkey Sausage and Cheese Crescent Balls 002

I’ll need the following; 1 – lb Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage, 2 – cups Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, 1 – can (8 oz) Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls, 1/2 – teaspoon dried rosemary leaves (crushed), and 2 – tablespoons all-purpose flour. To prepare them, Heat the oven to 375°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with Pam Cooking Spray. Unroll crescent dough on work surface; coat each side of dough with 1 tablespoon flour. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into about 1/4-inch pieces. Mix crescent dough pieces into bowl of sausage mixture in small amounts until well blended. Then shape mixture the into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place in pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. They came out golden brown and delicious! The Turkey Sausage, Cheese, Crescent Rolls, and Rosemary are perfect together! The perfect Party Appetizer or just a Snack for the family, thank you Pillsbury! I’ve left the original recipe and web link below.
