On the other hand, he also brought an obsession with The Bachelor -- and In The Kitchen with David Venable on QVC...
|I NEVER would have thought I'd learn anything about cooking from a shopping channel??!!|
Honestly, without Ross -- I never would have known anything about these television shows. I will spare you our Bachelor observations (even though, every Monday night, I am rolling on the floor with laughter...)
But, last week, on In The Kitchen with David Venable, I learned about a Panade. AND I REALLY MUST SHARE THIS TREASURE!!
|An internet picture of a Panade!!|
David was showing off the QVC Le Creuset dutch ovens with a fabulous Panade. It starts like french onion soup -- sauteing and stewing a bunch of onions until they are golden and delicious, then layer the dish -- onions, stale bread, cheese, broth...repeat. Bake in the oven until it all comes together - like a delicious cheesy onion soup souffle, with bits of crispy, crunchy bread and melted cheese.
Here's a link to the recipe I used: Panade Recipe I love any excuse to get out my Dutch Oven...and I made some modifications. I left out the Swiss Chard, and I added a lot more cheese. Also, I added about 8 oz. of cooked spicy hot sausage to the beef broth...which gave it a nice kick.
|We ate it so fast, I didn't get a chance to take a picture. But it really did look kinda like this...|
I made a huge pot, and the good news is that the leftovers were also delicious!! (just a quick nuke, and the cheese got all pully again...YUMMO...)
