Hot Little Suppers

Savory Thyme Butter

Posted by Callies Biscuits on

The best thing about this savory topping is that you more than likely already have these ingredients in your kitchen, and whipped butter is so versatile. Try this savory butter on bagels, steaks, and baked potatoes. You can shape the butter into a log, wrap it in plastic, and freeze to keep on hand for those holiday appetizers, or even as a post holiday dinner snack. 

Savory Thyme Butter

Ingredients

    - 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, at room temperature - 1 clove garlic, minced - 2 tablespoons minced green onion (1 onion, white and green parts) - 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme, or more to taste - Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (more than you think you'll need) - Makes about 2/3 cup

Instructions

    1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl with a rubber spatula, or whip with a handheld mixer. 1. Transfer to a ramekin, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge, or roll into a log on plastic wrap and freeze until ready to use.

          Thanksgiving Prep Checklists

          Posted by Callies Biscuits on

          Here in the palmetto state, we know two things: a good biscuit recipe is a secret weapon in every southerner’s kitchen, and family always comes first! I named my handmade biscuit company after my mom, Callie, back in 2005. 15 years later, I am a mom to three with a passion for holiday gathering. So much so, that I make a commitment every year to spend the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving collecting food for family recipes from purveyors across the state. Get the scoop inside my lowcountry life, as I share my secrets to preparing for Thanksgiving in South Carolina here on @discover_sc every Friday! 


                  Things To Do With Leftover Turkey

                  Posted by Callies Biscuits on

                   

                  Here in the south, we know that nothing goes to waste. Here are my favorite things to do with leftover Thanksgiving turkey: 
                  I use this turkey stock to make my cornbread dressings, I steam my rice in it, make gravy with it, and I always cook my green beans in it. The flavor that the turkey stock adds is absolutely phenomenal!
                  Turkey Salad is an inspiration from my Nantucket days and being nostalgic for Something Natural sandwiches. Use the turkey meat from a batch of stock and have lunch for a week! 
                  This recipe is super easy. Take the strained stock and add the below ingredients and let it simmer. Perfect for warming up on a chill evening! 

                   

                   


                          Asparagus Bacon Roll Ups

                          Posted by Callies Biscuits on

                          It's a little hard to believe we're so close to the holidays... this time of year, all I can think about is entertaining (even if it it looks a little different from years past). These Asparagus Bacon Roll-Ups are great for tailgates or dinner parties. Plus, who doesn't love veggies wrapped in bacon?! 

                          Asparagus Bacon Roll Ups

                          Ingredients

                            - 1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, at room temperature - 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese - 3 teaspoons finely minced garlic - 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice - 1/4 teaspoon kosher slat - 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper - 32 spears asparagus, trimmed - 16 slices bacon - 16 slices white bread - 4 tablespoons butter, melted

                          Instructions

                            1. Beat together cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the asparagus in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and place in a bowl of ice water until cold. Drain the asparagus well and dry each spear. 1. Partially cook the bacon, keeping it limber, as you will wrap the bread with it. Remove to a paper bag to drain. 1. Use a serrated knife to remove the crusts from the bread. Flatten each bread slice with a rolling pin. Spread each slice of bread with cream cheese mixture. Place 2 asparagus spears in the center of the bread, from one corner to another. Pick up a free corner and roll. Wrap each roll-up with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. 1. Place the roll-ups on a baking sheet. Use pastry brush to brush the bread with melted butter. 1. Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Serve warm.

                              To make these vegetarian, simply skip the bacon!
