INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 - pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
1 - cup boiling water
1/2 - ounce dried wild mushrooms, such as morel, chantarelle, oyster, and/or porcini mushrooms
7 - 8 - slices bacon (8 ounces), cut into small pieces
12 - ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 - cloves garlic, minced
3 - tablespoons butter
3 - tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 - cups half-and-half or light cream
2 - teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon ground black pepper


DIRECTIONS


In an extra-large skillet cook beans in boiling lightly salted water about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Drain again; set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl pour the 1 cup boiling water over the dried mushrooms. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.


In the same extra-large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a small bowl lined with a paper towel; crumble bacon. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings in skillet; discard the remaining drippings. Cook cremini mushrooms in the reserved drippings over medium-high heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in green beans.


Meanwhile, use a fork to remove the dried mushrooms from the water (do not discard liquid). Chop the mushrooms; add to green bean mixture.


For sauce, in a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in all but about 2 tablespoons of the mushroom liquid (discard the liquid at the bottom of the bowl, which may be gritty). Stir in half-and-half. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in rosemary, salt, and pepper. (To serve today, omit Step 5 and continue as directed in Step 6.)


Transfer crumbled bacon, green bean mixture, and sauce to separate airtight containers. Cover; chill for up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Stir the sauce into the bean mixture. Spoon into a 2-quart square baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly. Top with bacon. Bake for 5 minutes more.

3/4   cup   vegetable oil
4    large  shallots or 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced (about 1 cup total)
1/2   cup   milk
1    cup   all-purpose flour

directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 2 1/2- to 3-quart au gratin or baking dish; set aside. In a 12-inch skillet cook beans in enough lightly salted boiling water to cover for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Transfer beans to a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Drain again.
In the same skillet cook pancetta over medium heat until crisp. Remove from skillet, reserving drippings; drain on paper towels. When cool, finely crumble or chop pancetta; set aside.
Meanwhile, add mushrooms, garlic, and thyme to drippings in skillet (if using pancetta, you may need to add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil); cook and stir for 5 to 6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and liquid has evaporated. Stir in pancetta, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add mushroom mixture to beans, gently tossing to combine.
For sauce, in a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add half-and-half all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in the semisoft cheese, the 1/8 teaspoon salt, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Remove from heat; stir in wine. Pour sauce over green bean mixture, stirring gently just until combined. Transfer green bean mixture to prepared baking dish.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and beans are tender. If using, top with the French-fried onions during the last 5 minutes of baking. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir green bean mixture. Sprinkle with Crispy Shallots.
Crispy Shallots
If desired, preheat oven to 375 degrees . In a small saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Dip a small handful of sliced shallots in milk, letting excess drip off. Toss shallots in flour; shake off excess flour. Place coated shallots in hot oil. Cook about 2 minutes or until golden and slightly crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shallots to paper towels to drain; if desired, sprinkle lightly with salt. Repeat with remaining shallots, milk, and flour. If desired, line a baking sheet with foil; place shallots on prepared baking sheet. Reheat for 10 minutes before topping casserole.

ingredients
 
  • 4      eggs, separated
  • 4    pounds   sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1/2   cup   packed brown sugar
  • 1/2   cup   half-and-half or light cream
  • 1/4   cup   butter, melted
  • 1/2   teaspoon   finely shredded orange peel
  • 2    tablespoons   orange juice

  • 1    teaspoon   vanilla
  • 1/2   teaspoon   cream of tartar
  • 1/2   cup   granulated sugar
  • 3/4   cup   pecan pieces, toasted
 
directions
Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grease a 2-quart square baking dish; set aside. In a Dutch oven cook sweet potatoes, covered, in enough boiling salted water to cover for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender; drain. Return potatoes to the pan.
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mash potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in brown sugar, half-and-half, melted butter, orange peel, orange juice, and salt. Cool for 5 minutes. In a small bowl lightly beat the egg yolks with a fork. Stir the egg yolks into the sweet potato mixture. Transfer sweet potato mixture to the prepared baking dish.
 
Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, for meringue, in a large mixing bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed about 4 minutes more or until mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks and sugar dissolves.
 
Sprinkle pecans evenly over hot potatoes. Immediately spread or pipe meringue over top, carefully sealing to edge. Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the meringue reads 160 degrees F.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or until marshmallow creme is puffed and light brown.
Make Ahead Tip
  • To Make Ahead: Prepare sweet potatoes as directed, except cover and chill egg whites. Do not preheat oven, but do cool sweet potatoes to room temperature after mashing. When cool, continue with Step 2. Cover tightly with foil; chill for up to 48 hours. To serve, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 45 minutes; stir. Prepare meringue as directed in Step 3 (or spread with marshmallow creme). Bake as directed.

Summer Squash Ribbons
ingredients
 
  • 2      medium zucchini
  • 2      medium yellow summer squash
  • 2    ounce very thinly sliced  prosciutto (3 to 4 slices)
  • 2    tablespoons   butter
  • 1    teaspoon   cracked black pepper
  • 4    ounces   Parmesan cheese, shaved into thin slices (curls) with a vegetable peeler (1 cup)
 
directions
For squash ribbons: Trim each end of the zucchini and summer squash; rinse and pat dry with paper towel. Using a vegetable peeler, cut wide ribbons from the whole length of the zucchini and summer squash. (Slices should be slightly less than 1/8-inch thick.) Rotate the squash, peeling all four sides to get the most color; stop peeling when you get to the seeds. Set aside ribbons; discard squash centers.
 
 
In a very large nonstick skillet, cook prosciutto over medium-high heat until crisp, about 6 minutes, turning once; drain off and discard drippings. Crumble prosciutto. Set aside.
 
 
In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the squash ribbons and cook about 2 minutes or until just tender, turning occasionally. Sprinkle with cracked pepper; remove skillet from heat. Add the shaved Parmesan cheese; toss gently to coat. Transfer squash mixture to a serving platter and top with the crisp prosciutto.

Spinach Soufflé
ingredients
 
  • 2    packages  (10 ounces each) fresh whole-leaf spinach, trimmed and washed
  • 1    bunch  scallions (about 6) or other small spring onions, trimmed and halved crosswise
  • 3    tablespoons   butter
  • 6    tablespoons   all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4   cups   milk
  • 1 1/4   teaspoons   salt
  • 1/8   teaspoon   ground nutmeg
  •     Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 4    ounces   Havarti cheese with dill, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4   cup   fine dry bread crumbs
  • 6      eggs, separated into yolks and whites between two clean bowls
  • 2    teaspoons   lemon juice
 
directions
Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add spinach and scallion, stirring and submerging; cook about 2 minutes or until wilted. Drain well. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess water. Finely chop.
 
 
In medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons flour; whisk about 1 minute or until blended and cooked slightly. Add milk, whisking to prevent lumps. Cook over medium heat about 3 minutes or until mixture reaches a low boil, whisking in 1 teaspoon salt, the nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Remove saucepan from heat. Whisk in cheese; let cool slightly.
 
 
Heat oven to 375 degrees . Lightly coat eight (7-ounce) oval baking dishes or one 10-cup oval or souffle dish with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, tilting dish to coat.
 
 
In large bowl, whisk half of the cheese mixture into egg yolks. With wooden spoon, vigorously stir in remaining cheese mixture and the spinach mixture.
 
 
In large clean bowl with electric mixer on medium to high speed, beat together egg whites, lemon juice and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt until stiff peaks form. Sift remaining 3 tablespoons flour over egg whites and gently fold in. Stir one-quarter of beaten egg whites into spinach mixture to lighten. Gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon about 1 cup into each 7-ounce dish or scrape whole amount into souffle dish. Place individual dishes on baking sheet.
 
 
Bake individual souffles at 375 degrees about 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffed (or bake for 35 to 40 minutes for souffle dish). Serve immediately.
