Here is your Good Day Columbia GDC Morning WACH for Thursday November 21, 2013:
Lotâ??s of fun food, spirits, football, and health on the show today. Letâ??s get to it.
If you are stressing about the big Turkey Day feast, fear not â?? Chef Jason Scarborough from US Foods joined Tyler, aka the Weekend Chef for some culinary magic. As promised, here are the recipes:
Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes with a Sage Brown Butter
4 Sweet Potatoes washed and dried
4 oz Heavy cream
3 oz Unsalted Butter Dices into fourths
½ Tsp Nutmeg
6 Fresh Sage Leafs chopped
TT Kosher Salt
TT Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Rub oil all over each sweet potato coating well. Sprinkle with Kosher salt and place in the over for 30 to 40 mins. Until fork tender. Remove from oven and allow to rest long enough to handle and remove the skin. After all the skin has been removed, melt butter in a medium sized pot until light brown in color add sweet potatoes along with sage, nutmeg, heavy cream, and S&P to your taste. Serve right away.
Pan Roasted Applewood Bacon and Brussel Sprouts
6 slices of thick Applewood Smoked Bacon
20 Brussel Sprouts cleaned and cut into 1/8 slices
1 Red Bell Pepper small dices
3 sprigs Thyme just the leaves
2 Shallot small dice
1oz Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper TT
Cook bacon on a sheet pan in the oven at 375ºF. Once the bacon has cooked remove it from the pan and save the fat. Chop the bacon into smaller ½ in. pieces, save for later. Toss the shaved brussel sprouts with the bacon fat, diced red bell peppers, shallots, and thyme leaves. Now, SautÃ© the mixture in a medium sized pan over high heat with the olive oil until slightly charred. Finish with crispy bacon and serve.
