Here are recipes for a few family favorites for Thanksgiving from the WCCO Morning Show’s Jamie Yuccas.
Sliced Lemon and Lime, cut and run over the top of the glass, rub glass over celery salt. (Make Bloody Mary first and then use lemon and lime to garnish at end.)
Fill 1/3 of glass with Absolute Peppar Vodka
Add one-third of a tablespoon of each of the following, or eyeball to your taste: Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, fresh garlic
Fill the rest of the glass with fresh tomato juice
Garnish with a stick of one jalapeno, spicy fresh cheese curds, and Sriracha bacon (see immediately below)
You can make Sriracha bacon by putting 1 lb. of thick slick bacon in a roasting pan.
Cook on 375 degrees for 20 minutes until crisp.
Drain the grease.
Squeeze a line of Sriracha on each piece.
Sprinkle brown sugar, covering each piece (you will likely use one cup of brown sugar for the whole pan).
Put it back in oven for 7-10 minutes or until sugar is melted.
Put it on non-stick foil or parchment paper until cool.
2 pie crusts (Pillsbury out of the box)
2 cups of cream
3 cups grated Swiss Cheese (you can sub if you don’t like swiss)
3-4 drops of Tabasco
2 tablespoons grated onion
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
2 cups chopped ham (best to do in food processor)
Put pie crusts in pie pans, scrunch sides with fingers.
Sprinkle grated onion on bottom of crust.
Sprinkle in ham. Sprinkle in cheese.
Mix eggs and cream with Tabasco and parsley, pour over top so they’re both even.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce oven to 325 degrees for about 30 minutes or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean (no egg residue).
