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.


Pork Chops Calvados


6 1thick loin pork chops well trimmed
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 1/2 cup gruyere cheese,finely grated
2 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup heavy cream, divided
1/4 cup plus 2t. calvados brandy
1 or any apple flavored brandy
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Saute' pork chops until browned in melted butter in an oven proof skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper; cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Combine cheese, Dijon mustard and 4 Tbl. of heavy cream; spread mixture evenly over pork chops. Broil 5-6 " from heat, remove from oven immediately when cheese is lightly browned. Remove pork chops from skillet to a serving platter (keep warm), reserving all drippings in skillet. Add Calados brandy to dripping in skillet; cook over fairly high heat, deglazing skillet by scraping particles that cling to the bottom. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add remaining heavy cream and continue cooking, while stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Pour sauce over pork chops and sprinkle with paprika and parsley. From the recipe files of
