Easter Side Dishes

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I know people are very passionate about how they like their mashed potatoes – there’s the soft, smooth ‘n creamy camp and then there’s the hearty, full textured camp. Me? I like ’em full flavored, skin-on and with roasted garlic.

To please as many people as I can, I’ll give instructions for both the smooth/soft/creamy and the hearty/skin-on mashed potatoes. You can decide what you want to make!

Asparagus Gratin

This recipe for Asparagus Gratin originates from Cook’s Country Magazine, May 2011 issue. What I found fascinating about this recipe: instead of just discarding the woody asparagus ends, it is used to make a flavorful quick broth that will be used to create the sauce in the recipe.

Miso Roast Chicken

Easiest way to make foolproof roast chicken is to spatchcock it. The backbone is cut out of the whole chicken so that the chicken can lay flat while cooking. Thus cuts down the cooking time and helps the chicken roast evenly. Carving the chicken is much easier too, you can even carve it with a small knife.

Roast Split Chicken with Lemony Artichoke Sauce

I don’t know about you, but cooking a chunk of meat larger than the size of my head sometimes intimidates me. How do I get the thing to cook evenly? Do I need to rotate it? Breast side up or down? Will it implode like Clark Griswold’s turkey on Christmas Vacation? Ah, I have the perfect Roast Split Chicken recipe for you..the chicken skin thin and crisp, the meat succulent and the sauce divine. Best of all, its so easy!

Prime Rib Roast with Miso Jus

Prime Rib seems so intimidating to cook, but in all honesty, it’s easier than roasting a turkey. There’s no brining, stuffing a cavity, flipping halfway or injecting with marinade. Cooking the most tender Prime Rib only uses one cooking rule – slow ‘n low. All you need is time.
