Vietnamese Beef Pho
This pho lemongrass soup is served with a plate full of fresh garnishes and various sauces — this allows each person to season their serving to taste. The soup is somewhat unusual because the meat is cooked in the serving bowl. The beef is sliced very thin, almost thin enough to see through; you might want to have the butcher slice it. The boiling hot broth is poured over the noodles and raw meat. The meat is quickly cooked in the hot broth while you garnish the soup.
Basil Tomato Soup
'After bringing this six-ingredient soup to a teachers' function, I had so many requests for the recipe that it was published in the school newsletter,' relates Sarah Perkins of Southlake, Texas. 'I serve the rich soup in mugs with a Caesar salad and crusty bread.'
Cajun Potato Soup
This is a hearty and rich potato soup with cream and spicy andouille sausage. Serve with fresh garlic bread. Use Polish sausage in place of the andouille for a slightly different flavor.
Breaded Brussels Sprouts
This is an excellent recipe for Xmas dinner and is very simple to prepare. This recipe is from my cookbook, From Uncle Bill's Kitchen.
Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts
Kielbasa slices and baby Brussels sprouts cooked with red onion make a hearty main dish. I serve this with macaroni and cheese and a loaf of French bread. Even the kids love it! My husband likes to eat his with spicy brown mustard.
Leftover Pot Pie
The perfect way to use up all the leftovers from Holiday Feasts. You can substitute any meat for the turkey. I have used beef as well, and it makes a wonderfully tasty dish that doesn't remind you that this is the 4th time you have eaten Christmas dinner. Turkey stock can be used in place of turkey gravy.
