My Pie Monday: Chive Blossoms, Potato Pizza, and More!

@Tipsykit: I just sweated a little finely minced onion and garlic in olive oil, added heavy cream and reduced slightly. I didn't measure anything but you need very little of it for a 12" pizza.

Your first pie looks great, btw. The Kenji fool proof pan pizza is all kinds of awesome.

@ Adam: I've been experimenting with both. I have a hard time with my metal peel so the cold start is much easier for me. It is essentially Kenji's fool proof pan pizza on a flat pan.

In regards to the "cold start". I've been preheating the oven to 500 with the rack as low as it goes. Make sure I have some oil under the crust and it fries up nice by the time the top is ready.

Squash Casserole from 'Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking'

I like to start the onion sautéing in a pan big enough to hold the squash. When the onion is about half done, pile the cut up squash on top, put a lid on it and let it steam a while. Take the lid off, stir it up and cook uncovered until most of the water is gone.

It's real good to eat just that way. Add some green beans, a sliced tomato and some cornbread you are good to go.

Enough, Paula! Nominations for our next Southern cooking star...

I like John Edge and the Lee brothers.

FN already has the Neely's, buried somewhere, I think. They kind of get on my nerves.

too much basil (Thai and sweet/Italian)

I have been reading this thread with interest because I planted a thai basil this year for the first time. So far have added some to a curry and to laab.

Have been growing sweet basil for many years and you must be brutal with it. Keep it pruned back. Even if some (or a lot) goes to waste.

Help! Incapable of thinking or decision making.

hamburgers, at home

You are welcome.

Pizza Hut Strikes Again, Unveiling 'Firebaked Style Flatbread Pizzas'

I would eat it. I don't cull much.

I wonder how many of the square Wendy's meat patties would fit on one rectangle?

My hamburger pizza is the most awesomest pie ever. Check mail for inbound slice next week.

Don't get the appeal of this or any other sandwich stacked up that high. I would just eat the three triple burgers as they came.

Should I buy lodge cast iron pizza pan?

I like mine a lot. You could use it for lots of things other than pizza.

What's new around Savannah, GA...

Two fairly new places are A Lure and Local 11 ten. I've read good reviews about the former but have not been, the latter was very good on our one visit.

My Pie Monday: Squash Blossom Pizza, Potato Pie, and More!

@Dan, would appreciate some more details on the potato pie. I've got new potatoes in my garden now that I need to use up. Yours looks delicious.

Excellent Homestyle Cuban Cuisine at Jose's in Bradenton, FL

Wonder if you could get the piccadillo without the hardboiled egg? Looks like the kind of thing they would make a vat of first thing though.

We are going to be down there in the fall and will check this place out.

Tell me I can cook fried chicken?!?!

You do not need two inches of oil in your frying pan though. If it's 3/4-1" deep before you put the chicken in it will be plenty. Maybe less, if it comes half way up the chicken parts you are good to go.

Tell me I can cook fried chicken?!?!

The recipe above will work like a champ. As long as you don't walk away and forget about it, your house should be safe. Your stove will be greasy though.;

Open Thread: How Do You Say These Food Words?

Having lived in rural Georgia all my life, I put one or two more syllables in most of these than the rest of ya'll.

Braising Pork in Milk

Click the link; casserole at the bottom of the last picture, what is that?

Of Course Shopsins Makes Great Onion Rings

We used to eat at a place that did an onion loaf that looked exactly like the one in Jamie Feldmar's post. It was ridiculously good.

Lodge pizza pan and Weber kettle

I'm sure this has been discussed but I can't find it.

How would this work: build pie on cold Lodge pan, get grill screaming hot, put pan on cooking grate, cover with lid?

I guess what I'm really asking is would it be any better than doing the same thing in a 550 oven?

Bolillo rolls

The recent posts on tortas had me looking for recipes to make Bolillo rolls. Most of the formulas I found seemed to be the same one and I modified it a little and proceeded.

Mine came out very good I thought but I had no interest in making the corn starch and water glaze to go on them so I skipped that part.

My question is; have you made Bolillos with and without the glaze and do you think it is worth fooling with?

I would put up a pic of mine but it doesn't seem to be done here.

Enriched dough pizza crust

Dinner roll type dough with plenty of butter, eggs and milk. This is how they made them at my elementary school back in the late 60's.

I recall them being delicious. Small individual pies with a thick, puffy and tender crust, just a dollop of sauce, ground beef and government cheese in the middle.

Anybody here ever do this?

I think I'm going to give it a try. I bake sandwich bread every week or so now so it's not going to take a lot of effort to take out a few ounces of dough to experiment with.

Freezing bread

Every week a make a batch of French bread for our dinner. I produce six small boules and the two of us split one for dinner.

I have noticed, and my wife concurs, that it gets better after being frozen for several days. The flavor seems to continue developing but since it's frozen it doesn't stale.

To prepare for dinner I generally let it thaw on the counter for an hour or two and then reheat for 15 minutes at 350f and then let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Has anybody else noted this effect?

Otto mashed potato pizza ?

Saw this on a show last night and was not paying too much attention until the end. I want to make it this weekend and was unsure if there was some kind of sauce on the dough. I saw somebody using creme fraiche as sauce but it might have been another pie. Seems like just a little oil on the crust would be fine.

Anybody know? Or care to offer a suggestion?

Pizza Inn Cheeseburger Pizza

We were coming back from a vacation and looking for lunch. Rolled through a small town on Sunday, right after noon, and it appeared that everybody in town was eating at Pizza Inn so we joined them at the buffet.

This pizza tasted exactly like a Crystal cheeseburger. Mustard for sauce, ground beef, pickles and onion.

Anybody here ever have one?

Pizza and potato chips

I like to eat potato chips (regular Lays chips) along with pizza. It makes me a little sad when I eat pizza someplace where potato chips are not available which is why I mostly eat at home.

Anybody else? If not, I strongly recommend giving it a try.
