NB Iron Chef: Independance Day Style
I didn't want to derail Tim's excellent thread (even though it wasn't totally off topic) so I decided to make this forum about one of my favorite things: FOOD!
What are you planning for our glorious holiday? I will start with the Tater Salad recipe I tried to derail Tim's blog with:
Southern style Tater Salad:
4 taters (medium to bigguns)
4 eggs (bigguns)
1/2 stalk celery, chopped up
1/4 cup sweet relish (or dill relish)
1 clove garlic, minced (or 2, never can wrong with garlic)
2 or 3 or... tablespoons mustard
1/2 cup mayo
salt and pepper like crazy (ok, that's just me)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add taters and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain and chop 'em up in 1 inch cubes.
Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water; peel and chop.
In a large bowl, combine the taters, eggs, celery, sweet (or dill) relish, garlic, mustard, mayo and salt and pepper. Gently mix together and serve warm. Will be also awesome the next day right out of the fridge.
Y'all take it from here. I know J is gonna come up with some awesome, delish recipe's. : )
