Mashed Potato Souffle
The most amazing mashed potatoes you'll ever have! A little cream cheese, scallions, and Tabasco®! Absolutely divine! It takes a little time, but well worth it. Don't go too light on the Tabasco®, it really adds GREAT flavor!
Smoked Bacon and Irish Cheese Mash
I have this on my menu at the moment. I serve it straight from the oven under a juicy ribeye steak. It's glorious when the oozing cheese mixes with the juices from the ribeye. It's very popular with my customers and my girlfriend loves it. Why not try it with a big lump of mature Cashel blue cheese melted on the top and a wild mushroom sauce poured over it all? Very heavy and full of fat but great as a treat every now and then.
Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One
This is the real Monte Cristo sandwich. It has a nice thick batter and is absolutely delicious. Enjoy hot sandwich with currant jelly or make a currant sauce with currant jelly, water and heavy cream.
Grilled Bacon Jalapeño Wraps
Bacon-wrapped, cheesy jalapeño poppers are grilled for an easy party snack.
Baked Stuffed Brie with Cranberries & Walnuts
Rich and creamy baked brie stuffed with dried cranberries and walnuts.
Chef John's Potato Roses
Baked rose-shaped potato gratins would be great for entertaining, since you can make them ahead, and keep them warm in the pan, or cool and reheat in the oven when you are ready to serve. The technique is straightforward, but make sure you season the potatoes generously.
