Weird, But Really Good Eats!




I actually made an open face, broiled treat from slices from that large Puff ball mushroom! Seasoned it with Worchester sauce, and a blend of dry seasonings,topped it with turkey and cheese- and turned it loose! Not half bad! Good mushroomy flavor, and original-I'm sure! Tonight, we had a Chicken tenders, with Swiss cheese and bacon concoction, that couldn't be called Cordon Bleu, but had the same flavors... I even topped mine with blue cheese dressing..and a couple of cobs of some of the last Michigan fresh corn we are liable to get this season! I'm no Dog Bloggy, but I do get my "cookin' out of the box" groove on- once in a while!

Next time I would slice them thin, into 3" by 3"s, batter them and deep fry... Imagine your own dip- and only your beloved Donna would look better than that! Be well, BamaBoy!

Vodka Mom said...

buffalo you pulled this so far out of the box it fits in a tube! The open face puffball and then the tenders cordon bleu - very nice - very nice indeed! deconstructed and - excellent! same ol' stuff different arrangement - my favorite food!

buffalodick said...

DogB- You and I might be the only people who understand this when cooking! Our restaurant would be a huge success!

buffalodick said...

VMom- When I write one, the autographed copy is yours "On the house"!!

Rachel said...

To say you think outside the box would be an understatement! I love mushrooms, and never thought to do anything like this. Nice work ;)

blueviolet said...

I love how you used that mushroom, an unexpected gift from nature.

I too have been thoroughly enjoying the local corn. We're so lucky with our fresh produce here in the summer, aren't we?

buffalodick said...

Rachel- Hope you return every time! I have even said in corporate meetings- why a box, when zip-lock bags work so well? This kind of talk did not serve me well in my career.. I will always be the square peg trying to get into the round hole..
BlueV- People are almost scared to use Nature's bounty, unless in has a bar code on it!

deb said...

looks like good home cooking. i'm taking myself off blogger for awhile. archiving olive. start something fresh. i'll still check in with you. thanks for all your kind words. you too db.

buffalodick said...

deb- Well, I'll miss you.. Hope things go better for you soon!

G-Man said...

Concoction doesn't apply to you Buff....Masterpiece does though!!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Very, very nice Buff. you definitely cooked outside of the box. Everything looks incredible.

Akelamalu said...

Sounds a great 'concoction' to me! :)

Marjie said...

You probably know I don't eat fungus. But this is a nice creation for one. You were indeed channelling Dog on this one.

buffalodick said...

G-man- The mushroom was the first time I broiled a Puffball like that, but it was tasty, firm, and surprisingly filling!
Katherine- I'm starting to experiment a little again, we tend to get in ruts here!
Ake- Both worked out, and both were new techniques for those foods for me..
Margie- We play off each other for ideas once in a while, and swap techniques, too!

Beth said...

put cheese on ANYTHING and it's instantly better!!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Ohhhhh! You make mushrooms look so delectable! :)

buffalodick said...

Beth- I agree! Three sliced Puffball mushrooms had sharp,smoked Povolone, while one had sharp Cheddar.. The chicken tenderloins had Swiss... I usually have eight or more versions of cheese in the house- but never drink milk! Goofy, or what?
Stacy- Good job on the wine making article- right as rain! The Mushrooms were a little adventuresome for my wife, but were good in flavor and texture- but felling like Portabella can be. Same ability to soak up flavor of marinade, but never marinade too long- gets soggy..Pick and eat quickly, do not store with other foods- as they will pick-up a mushroomy smell!

♥ Braja said...

It's me the poser! Ha! Just came over to "give some back." So here it is:

Change "dick" to "brain" and POOF! You're on target!!

buffalodick said...

I'm not selling anything, begging, or pretending- how about you? I'm not the one you called you on this- others said it to me! Why don't you see if you can find them? Run your scams somewhere else, this is a friendly blog..

Chef E said...

Oh my gosh, this sounds great! I think all your food is wonderful! I also want to steal the dishes after I eat the food...well borrow them :) cause hubby likes that color combination...

Mona said...

that looks yummilicious! :)

buffalodick said...

Gene- Next day was endoscopy- throat doesn't feel much like eating for a couple of days!
ChefE- Out of production now, but we have a Phaltzgraff outlet 30 miles from here, where you can really save money on dishes, and find replacement pieces sometimes..

buffalodick said...

Mona- Both were pretty tasty- and easy!

Talita said...

Well, I love to try new things! Even more if the dish has cheese.

buffalodick said...

Talita- Cheese is a passion of mine, and I don't hide it!

Scarlet said...

Everything you post is completely new to me and things I KNOW my family would love. Can you e-mail me your cookbook?? ;) No, seriously!

buffalodick said...

Scarlet- I need my cook book- it's my brain and it's kind of attached to the rest of me! I will E-mail you on how I did this..
