3 cups rice krispies cereal
1 cup pineapples
1/2 cup mandarin oranges
I am not so sure I care for working with phyllo but I made three of these wrap things and we'll see how it tastes. After cutting into triangles, top with extra cranberry mixture and yogurt. The brie cheese is extremely dominant and this tastes a little European, if you know what I mean...
about 2 bread bags filled with assorted breads
Hawaiian, whole grain, gonnella, butter, cubed and lightly toasted in butter and oil
2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup butter
2 onions, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cups celery, chopped
3 Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped
2 boxes brown and serve sausage, cooked and chopped
6 large eggs
salt and pepper to taste
dash of cayenne and paprika
1 can cream of celery soup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
some chopped nuts
a couple sprigs of fresh thyme and sage
Preheat oven 350 degrees. In small bowl, combine chicken broth and cranberries and let soak for 30 minutes. In a large skillet, melt butter and saute onion, pepper and celery for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until tender. Add apples and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place in large bowl.
Beat 6 eggs in a separate bowl and add salt and pepper. Set aside.
In the large bowl with veggies, stir in chicken broth mixture, celery soup and cinnamon. Add toasted bread cubes, sausage and nuts, stirring gently to combine. Add eggs. Mix with hands to get in there real good.
Just as a tip for hosting these gatherings, it really helps to pre-prepare a couple of days ahead by having all your veggies chopped and bagged and then all you have to do is pull them out when putting together the recipe. The day before, which would be today, I combined all the ingredients and have them at the ready to pop in the oven. There is no way on God's earth I could make all these dishes the same day I entertain. No way, Jose. Thanks to Wayne-O for running around today to get sausages at Selena's in Lemont and Stevie's birthday cake in Hinsdale. Much obliged and extremely grateful. xo
