Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Olive-stuffed Meatballs

vegetables, sauces, pork

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup onion, chopped
2 small cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 lb ground meat, preferably
1 mixed pork and veal
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup parsley, chopped fine
1 large egg
1 cup heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
16 small stuffed green olives
1/4 cup peanut oil
3 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1. Heat the butter in a small skillet and add half the onion and garlic. Cook until wilted. Let cool briefly. 2. Put the meat in a mixing bowl and add the cooked onion and garlic, the bread crumbs, parsley, egg, half the cream and nutmeg. Mix well. Divide into 16 equal portions. 3. Flatten each portion into a small patty and place an olive in the center. Bring the edges of the meat together and seal in the olive. Press into a ball. 4. Heat the oil in a skillet large enough to hold the meatballs in one layer. Do not crowd them. Cook, turning often so that they brown evenly, about 5-10 min. Remove and keep warm. 5. Pour most of the fat from the skillet. To the skillet add the remaining onion and garlic and cook until wilted. Stir in the flour, then add the wine. Cook about 1 min., stirring. 6. Add the broth and tomato paste and stir with a wire whisk to remove any lumps. When the sauce is thickened and boiling, add the meatballs. Cover and cook 10 min., shaking the skillet occasionally. 7. Blend the remaining cream and the mustard into the sauce.
