Waffles?

My family prefers waffles over pancakes, do you think the sweet potato batter could be used in a waffle iron?

For the Cinnamon Rolls, I made it both ways, overnight in the fridge & in one day. They both turned out good, but not the same.

For the icing: I didn't have cream cheese either, so I found a butter powdered sugar recipe on the internet that tastes great.

1/3 c butter, melted
2 c powdered sugar
2 t vanilla
hot water

Mix butter & powdered sugar & vanilla, add hot water by the tablespoon til a spreading texture.

Review San Angel Inn dishes

Sopa De Elote ( p. 83) & Polla A Las Rajas (can't find the page; recipe below)

Happy to rerport...both were excellent! I ordered both on our Dec. '07 trip because I'd liked them so much from the previous trip.

The corn chowder seemed smoother at San Angel Inn- maybe next time I will throw it in the food processor for a few whirls. My family really like it... and we can't believe there is no cheese in this soup! A little 'chunky', but still very good.

Cooked my chicken a little long, but other wise the dish was excellent. Had a little trouble peeling the poblano... any hints? I did not place in indvidual dishes as the recipe called for, but in one... "family style, like Disney" as my 8 years old said.

This coming week I'm hoping to try Coral Reef PepperJack Cheese Grits, 50's Prime Time Cafe Mom's Meatloaf LTT William Penn Pasta I'll be sure to post a review.

Lynninpa... sure hope you are feeling better Thanks again for keeping this thread updated... it's my favorite!

Pollo A Las Rajas ~ San Angel Inn at Epcot's Mexico Pavilion Yield: 4 servings.
4 chicken breast halves
1 cup of chorizo, casing removed and diced
1 large red bell pepper
1 large Spanish onion
1 large poblano chili
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup half-and-half cream

1. Season the chicken breast halves with garlic, salt, and black pepper. Place the chicken breast halves in a roasting pan and bake in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or until cooked.
2. In a saucepan heat 2 tablespoons of oil and lightly sauté poblano pepper until skin starts separating. Peel skin from poblano pepper. Make a slit and remove all the seeds. Slice onion, bell pepper, and poblano pepper into strips.
3. In a heavy skillet heat remaining 3 tablespoons of oil and add chorizo, garlic, onion, and peppers. Cook over medium high heat stirring occasionally until onions and peppers are soft.
4. Add sour cream, half-and-half, black pepper and salt and simmer for three minutes.
5. On ovenproof serving dishes, place 3/4 cup of vegetable mixture. Top with roasted chicken breast. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese on each serving plate. Broil until cheese melts and turns golden. Serve.

The best way to peel any type of pepper is to char or blister the outside with open flame (gas burner or BBQ grill) or in an oven (coat outside of pepper with oil) first. As soon as the pepper is charred or blistered you should put into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap or drop into a zipper bag and seal. Allow the pepper to cool completely then peel skin while holding under warm running water. Then charred or blistered skin will come right off and you will be left with a pepper with an awesome roasted flavor and no skin! If you need more info on the process just let me know!

I have a couple of questions about making Fried Boursin like they serve at the PTC. Is this something that needs to be eaten soon or can it be allowed to sit like at a cocktail party? Also, has anyone tried this recipe with the apple,cinnamon & cranberry Boursin? I thought that would be a nice evening treat.

Anyone?

Just a guess here, but I do not think this would hold well during a cocktail party. The appeal of this appetizer is the warm, crispy outside that contrasts the warm, soft inside. If it was left sitting out it would end up being soft and cool from the outside to the inside and that may not be what you want. If you can ensure it gets eaten quickly go for it, but if it would be sitting around for a while I would pass on it.

Cobblestone Cheese Bread

Quote:

I had the same experience when I made the Canadian Cheddar Cheese soup and ended up throwing it into the blender at the last minute. It wasn't completely smooth (as that wasn't the point) but ended up being much closer in texture to the one in the restaurant.

llyninpa - if you're getting this nasty flu/cold that's been going around make sure you get plenty of rest. I caught it coming home from Orlando and I'm STILL not 100%. One feels draggy and tired and you need to get a lot of sleep.

My Mother borrowed the "Cooking with Mickey and the Chefs of WDW Resort) and made the Cobblestone Cheese Bread from it for a party. I had some of it and boy oh boy, is it ever good! So fluffly and light. I actually could eat more of that than dessert.

Cobblestone Cheese Bread
Yacht Club Galley, Chef David Hoffman
Makes 2 loaves

2 cups coarsely grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup milk
5 cups bread flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted and cooled
Two 1/4-ounce packages active dry yeast
1 tablespoon salt

1. Place the grated cheese, tightly wrapped, in the freezer for 1 hour before beginning to make the bread.
2. In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the water and the milk over medium low heat to 105°F - 115°F.
3. In the large bowl of an electric mixer, place the milk mixture, flour, sugar, butter, yeast, and salt. With the dough hook, beat the mixture on medium-high speed 5 to 6 minutes, or until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
4. With the mixer on low speed, and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese to the bread dough and beat until the cheese is well combined.
5. Lightly grease 2 - 81/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch loaf pans. Divide the dough in half, lightly knead each half until smooth, and shape into 2 loaves. Transfer the dough to the prepared pans and divide the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over the top. Put the pans in a warm place, cover with a towel, and let rise about one hour, or until doubled in size.
6. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool bread on a rack before serving.

Note: when this bread is served warm with Vegetable Cream Cheese (recipe below), it quickly disappears from the tables of the Yacht Club Galley at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort.

Vegetable Cream Cheese
Yacht Club Galley, Chef David Hoffman
Serves 4 to 6; makes a generous 1 cup

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons Knorr Swiss Vegetable Soup Mix
a pinch freshly ground pepper, or to taste
a pinch Spike seasoning or other spicy salt-free seasoning

In a medium bowl, with a fork, whip the cream cheese until soft and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to blend completely. Let the spread sit at room temperature for least 1 to 2 hours to allow this soup mix vegetables to soften and the flavors to develop. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
Note: this quick and easy spread was designed as the perfect accompaniment to the Cobblestone Cheese Bread. It's equally tasty with crackers or croutons.

Just wanted to thank you again, for this wonderful thread! I made the Mickey Waffles(pg. 39) yesterday and they were wonderful! I had noticed that they looked just like a recipe I had years ago that came with my Belgian waffle maker, but I had lost it. I've searched for that recipe for the last few years and couldn't find it.

Since DD8 and myself don't like to use syrup (I know-crazy, right?) on our waffles (I don't like them soggy and she thinks syrup is too sweet ) I just put a little butter on them and then sprinkle them with powdered sugar. So, since we don't have all the sweetness of the syrup, I added a little extra sugar, and vanilla, to the waffles, and they came out just great. I wasn't sure how many waffles the recipe would make so I cut it in half (just for 2 of us). The 1/2 recipe made 5 of the standard Belgian waffle square (approx. 6" sq). DD liked them so much that she actually had 2, and she normally only eats 1 when we make them with Bisquik. (She's never had one of the frozen kind ).

So, thanks again, for the recipes-The Mickey Waffles will now be our waffle recipe of choice. DD8 even said that they didn't take that much longer to make than the Bisquik ones.

Tatania, when adding cheese to any soup or sauce you need to make sure the temperature of the soup or sauce is not higher then 180 degrees. When adding cheeses at temperatures over 180 degrees the cheese will actually go through a separation process rather than a melting process (cheeses like to melt slowly at lower temps). This results in a less than smooth end product. When you ran it through the blender you re-homogenized the the product via the intense movement of the bender and all was well with the soup universe.

Ingredients
Serves 4
Shrimp Marinade
½ cup hot chili garlic paste
1 Tbsp. Minced garlic
½ cup Minced fresh ginger
1 cup Sweet chili garlic paste
2 cups Honey
2 cups Lemon juice
1 quart Canola oil
1 tsp. Fresh ground black pepper
2 tsp. Kosher salt
Method:
1. Mix all ingredients well except for oil
2. Whisk briskly while slowly adding the oil
3. Take out 1 cup of this to baste the shrimp while they are cooking
4. Use the rest to marinate the shrimp

'Ohana Shrimp
Ingredients:
5 lbs. peeled and de-veined shrimp 16-20 count
All but 1-cup shrimp marinade
METHOD:
NOTE: Best if you use outdoor grill as these really smoke up the grill.
1. After shrimp have marinated for two days, take them out of the marinade.
2. If you can find some kabob skewers use them to skewer the shrimp. If not use bamboo sticks or just grill them loose.
3. As you are grilling baste them occasionally with the marinade you saved.
4. When they reach an internal temperature of 145ºF, remove and serve.
This is definitely the OLD recipe (grilled...the new shrimp are cooked in a WOK)...Thank you so much!!! I had this at one time (stored on my computer)...my computer got some crazy virus and I lost it...when I tried to get it again I was told it was not something they could locate....I am making my shopping list now!
