Ammo's Crackers

Ammo's Crackers

Source: Ammo Restaurant - Hollywood, California

Infused Oil
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon paprika
Whisk together the oil, chili powder, pepper flakes and paprika in a small bowl. Set aside.

Crackers
Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons honey
Salt
4 cups all-purposeflour
Infused Oil
Pepper
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Spray 5 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the water, honey and 1 tablespoon salt in a medium-size bowl and mix until the salt is dissolved.

Place the flour in the bowl of a mixer and, beating at low speed, slowly add the water mixture until a dough forms that pulls away from the sides of the bowl, forming into a ball. The dough will be sticky.

Knead the dough on a floured surface 1 minute. Divide the dough into pieces small enough to fit your pasta machine. Dust both sides of the dough with flour. Start by running one piece of dough through the machine at its widest setting, then repeat, narrowing the setting each time, ending with the next-to-the-narrowest setting. You'll have a long dough strip when you're done that's as thin as fresh pasta. Place the dough strip on one of the prepared baking sheets. Repeat this step with each of the remaining pieces of dough. Some of the dough may tear or become too thin, but you should end up with about 15 long, thin pieces on the baking sheets.
Brush the dough with the Infused Oil, sprinkle each with salt and pepper to taste, and then with the pepper flakes, oregano and cheese
.
Bake the crackers until browned and crisp, 6 to 10 minutes. Cool them on racks, then break into pieces and serve.

Applebee's Santa Fe Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Applebee's Santa Fe Stuffed Chicken Recipe

8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 (8 ounce or larger) package Monterey jack cheese,
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 small red bell pepper
1 small green bell pepper

Cut some of the cheese into 8 slices, and reserve part of it for the cheese sauce. Place 1 chicken breast between two sheets of wax paper. Working from the center to the edges pound with a meat mallet until flat and rectangular shaped. Repeat with remaining breasts. Wrap the flattened chicken breasts around cheese. Secure with wooden picks or uncooked spaghetti noodles.

Combine the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, cumin and pepper. Roll the secured chicken pieces in the melted butter and then in the bread crumb mixture. Place chicken breasts in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish, but don't crowd them. Drizzle the remaining butter over all eight of the breasts. Refrigerate for 1 hour or freeze to bake later (baking time will be increased by about 5 to 10 minutes).

Bake in a preheated 400 degree F (205 degree C) oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
Make a roux with butter and flour. Add about 1 cup milk. Bring to a simmer. Add cheese and lower the heat, stirring constantly so cheese does not burn. Add milk as needed to thin out the cheese sauce. Dice bell peppers.

When chicken is done, pour some cheese sauce over top and sprinkle with diced peppers.

Yields 4 servings.

Boston Market Cornbread

1 box Jiffy Mix Cornbread Mix
1 box Jiffy Mix Yellow Cake Mix
OR
2 boxes Jiffy Mix Cornbread Mix

If you have only boxes of jiffy mix, use a brownie size 8-inch square baking pan. If you use a box of regular cake mix, use a 9 x 13-inch pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F until done. This takes about 30 minutes. Test for doneness.

Balducci's Tiramisu

Balducci's Tiramisu

Source: Balducci's - New York, New York

24 ladyfingers, toasted in a 375 degree F oven for 15 minutes
2 cups espresso coffee, cooled
6 eggs, separated
3 to 6 tablespoons granulated sugar, to taste
1 pound mascarpone
2 tablespoons Marsala wine
2 tablespoons Triple Sec
2 tablespoons brandy
2 tablespoons orange extract
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

Arrange the ladyfingers on a plate and lightly soak them with the cooled espresso. Put half of the soaked ladyfingers in one layer in a rectangular serving dish.

While the ladyfingers are soaking, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the yolks turn pale in color. Add the mascarpone, the liquors, and the extract, and stir gently.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a wire whisk until they are stiff. Gently fold the whites into the mascarpone mixture.

Use half of this mixture to make a layer on top of the ladyfingers in the serving dish. Sprinkle with half of the chopped chocolate. Repeat the procedure with another layer of soaked ladyfingers, the mascarpone mixture, and chocolate. Cover with tin foil and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
