NORWEGIAN MEATBALLS

NORWEGIAN MEATBALLS & LUTEFISK minus the LUTEFISK
I adapted this recipe from Molly Yeh

Lutefisk is one of those things that you either love or you hate it – there is no middle ground. It may be super common around where she lives during the holidays since so many families have Scandinavian heritage, but it wonā€™t happen here LOL šŸ™‚

Lutefisk consists of a dried white fish that is pickled in lye & it has a very strong smell and a gelatinous texture. She is ABSOLUTELY correct that itā€™s quite polarizing to a lot of people but to others, it’s very nostalgic and usually served with meatballs and lefse.

Molly used unsalted butter as did I the first time and we found it really lacking in salt so I switched to salted butter.

MEATBALLS
3 tablespoons butter
1 LARGE shallot, FINELY choppedĀ 
1 LARGE bunch green onions, FINELY chopped
1 tablespoon FRESH chopped sage, about 6 leavesĀ 
1 1/2 cups crustless white country bread cubes
1/4 cup WHOLE milkĀ 
13 ounces 80/20 ground beef
13 ounces ground porkĀ 
2 tablespoons FRESH chopped Italian parsleyĀ 
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground allspiceĀ 
1/2 teaspoon ground gingerĀ 
1/4 teaspoon FRESH grated nutmegĀ 
1 LARGE egg, beatenĀ 

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. I like my enameled cast iron sauce pan.
  • Add the shallots, onions and sage, stirring occasionally, cooking 15-18 minutes until a deep golden color.
  • Remove the pan clean with a paper towel, no need to wash.
  • While the onions cool, add the bread cubes to a large bowl.
  • Drizzle the milk over and toss to saturate it. Let sit 5 minutes or so until the bread is softened. Squeeze the bread through your fingers to make a paste.
  • Add the beef, pork, parsley, FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, egg, and cooled onions. Mix well with your hands.
  • Use a scoop or roll by hand 20-22 meatballs about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and rest on a baking sheet or large plate.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat.
  • When the butter is melted, brown the meatballs all over, in batches, removing them to the plate or baking sheet as they brown, about 5-6 minutes per batch. Donā€™t worry if they arenā€™t cooked through at this point, theyā€™ll cook more in the sauce.

SAUCE
3 + 1 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons FRESH chopped sage, about 4 leavesĀ 
1/4 cup WONDRA flourĀ 
3 cups beef stockĀ 
1 tablespoon QUALITY Worcestershire sauceĀ 
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper, to tasteĀ 
1/4 cup FULL FAT sour creamĀ 
2 tablespoons FRESH chopped Italian parsleyĀ 
Prepared pasta, for serving (optional)
Mashed Potatoes, for serving (optional)Ā 
Lefse, for serving (optional)Ā 

  • Once all the meatballs are out of the pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and melt.
  • Add the sage and cook until sizzling, about 30 seconds.
  • Sprinkle in the flour and stir to make a paste. Cook toasting the flour, 1 to 2 minutes until golden.
  • Whisk in the beef stock and Worcestershire sauce until smooth.
  • Adjust the heat so the sauce is simmering and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add the meatballs to the sauce and simmer 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and the meatballs are cooked through.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Scoot a few of the meatballs to the side to make a space in the pan and whisk in the sour cream until smooth.
  • Sprinkle with the parsley and serve over mashed potatoes or pasta if desired.

SPINACH ARTICHOKE CHICKEN

SPINACH ARTICHOKE CHICKEN adapted from REE

2 tablespoons salted butter
2 tablespoons avocado oilĀ 
4 thin-cut chicken breast steaks
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
WONDRA flour, for dredging

3/4 cup heavy creamĀ 
1 cup gratedĀ Parmesan
One 4-ounce jar diced pimientos, drained WELLĀ  (optional)
3 cups baby spinachĀ 
1 MEDIUM lemon, juicedĀ 

  • Heat the butter and avocado oil together in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Generously sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, dredge with flour lightly and add them to the skillet.
  • Cook until nicely browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove to a plate.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the skillet and stir until slightly softened, about 30 seconds, then add the artichokes and cook, stirring, until the artichokes are hot and the onions are translucent, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the wine and stir, then add the cream and more black pepper adjusting seasoning to your tastes.
  • Let the sauce come to a simmer, then add the Parmesan and cook for a minute to thicken.
  • Add the pimientos if using, spinach and lemon juice, then stirĀ  1-2 minutes until the spinach has wilted.
  • Nestle the chicken back into the skillet, spooning a little sauce over the top.

RANCH CHICKEN QUESADILLA FOLD OVERS aka STACKED TACOS

I’d been making something similar to Ree Drummond’s version of these for several years now that we called stacked tacos. When I saw her recipe in a magazine it reminded me how much we enjoyed these. For some reason they are a cold weather meal for us that we made regularly when we were back east šŸ˜€

RANCH CHICKEN QUESADILLA FOLD OVERS aka STACKED TACOS
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-2 cups rotisserie chicken pieces
2 cups of shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1 batch Jalapeno ranch dressing
4 (8-10) inch flour tortillas
2 tablespoons butter
Salsa, for dipping
Sour cream, for dipping

  • On each tortilla make a slit from the center to the edge.
  • Spread a dollop of the dressing over the entire tortilla.
  • Toss chicken pieces and green onions with the remaining dressing.
  • Arrange a layer of chicken pieces over one quarter of the tortilla.
  • Fold tortilla over chicken.
  • Add a layer of cheese to the quarter of tortilla that overlaps the chicken.
  • Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the cheese.
  • Spread a thin layer of salsa on the next layer.
  • Fold last quarter of tortilla over the cheese and bacon layer. You should now have a stacked triangle looking quesadilla.
  • Press down gently to secure the pieces.
  • Heat butter in large skillet or griddle over medium high heat.
  • Grill each quesadilla, carefully flipping to toast and crisp until both sides are golden, the cheese is melted and the chicken is heated through.
  • Serve with salsa and sour cream.

JALAPENO RANCH DRESSING
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups mayonnaise
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon crushed parsley flakes
2 tablespoons Penzeyā€™s California crushed jalapenos
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

  • Whisk all together and chill overnight before serving if you have time. The flavors meld together better with time.

CHICKEN THIGH FRICASSEE

Fricassee is a weird sounding word, but it’s also a fun sounding word. It’s French and literally means to lightly brown, stew and serve a meat, especially chicken or veal in a sauce made with its own stock. I saw this recipe on an episode of Guy’s Ranch Kitchen and Aaron May made this wonderful dish. I made very few changes to his recipe.Ā  My changes are in red. šŸ˜€

CHICKEN THIGH FRICASSEE adapted from ala Aaron May

2 tablespoons olive oil (avocado oil)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
1 Vidalia onion, diced
4 stalks celery hearts, diced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
2 cups chopped fresh tomato (grape tomatoes, halved)
1/2 cup Vermouth dry sherry
2 quarts chicken broth (I used homemade bone broth)
1 tablespoon FRESH chopped thyme
2 cups roasted red peppers, julienned
1 roasted pasilla or ancho pepper

  • Heat the avocado oil and butter in a large Dutch oven over high heat.
  • Add the chicken a few pieces at a time and brown on all sides. As they brown, sprinkle with salt and pepper and transfer to a platter.
  • Add the onions to the pot and cook over medium heat to soften.
  • Add the celery and garlic and cook until they turn a rich brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 3 more minutes.
  • Deglaze with dry sherry, then add the chicken broth and thyme.
  • Return the chicken to the pot and bring to a simmer.
  • Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Add the roasted peppers and peppers, then cover and cook until the chicken is fork-tender and the thigh bones are loose, an additional 30 minutes.

BETTY WHITE’S CHICKEN WINGS

I ran across an article about celebrity recipes and the one that stuck out to me was BETTY WHITE’S CHICKEN WINGS. They claim this recipe went viral before viral was a “thing”. Well, I LOVE Betty White, so I had to try them. šŸ˜€ I altered them very little. The biggest alteration was eliminating the “death to me” allergy ingredient of dry mustard. Hubby said in his opinion, it wasn’t even necessary. The other alterations I made were substituting Bragg’s liquid aminos for the soy sauce because it reduces the sodium A LOT and decreasing the water which made them stickier and in my opinion tastier! Anytime I make wings I start them in a buttermilk soak to plump them also. That said, these wings were AMAZING!

BETTY WHITE’S CHICKEN WINGS
3 pounds plump chicken wings
1/2 cup butter
1 quart buttermilk
1 cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Arrange wings in shallow baking pan or 2 as necessary for a single layer.
  • Pour buttermilk over top and refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Drain off buttermilk and rinse wings. Let them drain while you prepare the marinade.
  • Return wings to baking dish(es) in a single layer.
  • In a large sauce pan combine the butter, liquid aminos, water, garlic powder and brown sugar whisking to combine until butter melts and sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to a SLOW boil.
  • Turn off heat and cool 15 minutes.
  • Pour marinade over wings and refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Remove pan from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Bake 75-90 minutes depending on plumpness.
