Here in Kansas, it seems that Fall needs a little coaxing. The cooler weather and changing leaves are taking their time arriving, but we’re not waiting any longer. It’s soup season! We’re combining two of our favorite things, beer and cheese, to make a creamy, delicious, gonna-eat-it-even-though-it’s-still-warm-outside soup!
Chef Tom breaks down the few simple steps to taking your standard pre-cooked ham and turning it into a holiday meal masterpiece. A little smoke and a sweet mustard glaze take this ham to amazing heights.
We have a real treat this time. Bratwurst sliders with beer cheese on a pretzel bun. We cover making the brats, smoke house onions, the jalapeno cheese sauce and even the pretzel buns. This is a great treat for the big game or just relaxing on the deck.
Macaroni and cheese. Hot cheese dips and sauces. Creamy baked vegetable or seafood dishes. Pasta with white sauce. These are a few of the places béchamel sauces can take you. Béchamel is one of five mother sauces from which many other hot (or cooked) sauces are built. It’s ideal for improving pasta, vegetables and fish. We’ll lay out the basic recipe for making béchamel and where to go from there.
