Recipe: Chinese ham and egg fried rice

Recipe: Chinese ham and egg fried rice

Ingredients 1/2 c. frozen peas 3 tbsp. vegetable 2 eggs, lightly beaten 3 c. boiled rice 1 tsp. salt 2 oz. boiled ham (1/4″ cubes) 1 scallion Instructions Prepare ahead: Place frozen peas into 4 cups boiling water and cook for 5 minutes until tender (defrost). To cook: Set a 12 inch Wok or 10 inch skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Pour in 1 tablespoon of oil, swirl it above in the pan and immediately reduce the heat to moderate. Pour in the beat eggs. They will form a film on the bottom of the pan almost at once. Immediately lift this film gently with a fork and push it to the back of the pan so that the still liquid eggs can spread across the bottom of the pan to cook. As soon as the eggs are set, but before they become dry or begin to brown, transfer them to a small bowl and break them up with a fork. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil into the pan, swirl it around and heat it for 30 seconds. Add the rice and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes until all the grains are... Read the rest of this article »

Recipe: Garlic Rosemary French Bread Pizza Dough

Recipe: Garlic Rosemary French Bread Pizza Dough

From Jessica Bybee Ingredients 1 ½ C. Warm Water 1 T. Fresh Rosemary, chopped (generous T.) 2. T. Oil 1- 1 ½ T. Garlic (I used the pre-chopped stuff- if yours is fresh you will want to use less) 2 T. Sugar 1 ½ tsp. Salt 4-5 C. White Flour 1 ½ T. Gluten Flour 1 T. Yeast Instructions Put on a large cookie sheet that has been greased/sprayed and has a layer of cornmeal. I form into a long skinny form and use a sharp knife to cut slits in the top like the stores do. This loaf will rise large. It should be about double its size on the pan when you put it in the oven. While it is rising I keep it covered with sprayed saran wrap. Before putting in the oven I beat 1 egg and use a basting brush to brush a layer over the top of the bread. Be gentle so it doesn’t fall. Bake at 350 for 27-30 minutes. For normal French/white bread just don’t add the rosemary and garlic. Pizza Dough Variation Use the French/White Bread recipe but only use 1 T. Oil. You can take the dough out of the... Read the rest of this article »

Recipe: Breadmaker Never Fail Wheat Bread

Recipe: Breadmaker Never Fail Wheat Bread

From Jessica Bybee Ingredients 1 1/3 C. Warm Water (hard water works best) 2 T. Oil (Vegetable, Canola, or Light Olive Oil) 3 T. Sugar (Honey or Brown Sugar) 1 1/3 tsp. Salt 4 C. Flour (I usually do 1 C. of white for one of them to make the bread lighter) 1 T. Gluten Flour (heaping T.) 1 T. Yeast Instructions Add ingredients in order on list into bread pan of the bread maker. Start and leave alone. Mine usually stops the mixing/rising cycle after about an hour so that is when I transfer it to a bread pan and let it rise while the oven heats. I keep a piece of sprayed saran wrap on top while it rises, adjusting as it gets taller, to keep the dough moist. I let it rise about 1 ½-2 inches above the pan at its highest point before putting in the oven to cook. Bake at 350 for 26-30 minutes. (My oven is gas and I cook it for 27 minutes). Different pans may affect cook time as well. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)VN:F [1.9.22_1171]Rating: 0 (from 0 votes) Read More →
