    Default Bare Cupboard Recipes

    Bare Cupboard Potatoes

    This dish gets its name because you only need three very basic
    ingredients but boy does it taste good! It's important to leave the
    potatoes unrinsed, to make sure the pieces stick together when you
    turn the "cake" out of its pan.

    1? hours 15 min prep

    26 1/2 ounces large potatoes
    2 2/3 ounces butter
    salt and pepper
    1 clove garlic (optional)
    fresh parsley (optional)

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F or 220 degrees C.
    Scrub or peel the potatoes.
    Use a mandoline or the cucumber slicer on a cheese grater to slice
    the potatoes about 1/4 cm thick.
    Do not rinse.
    Use one third of the butter to grease a round cake tin on the bottom
    and the sides.
    Layer the potatoes in the dish, seasoning with salt and pepper and
    bits of butter as you go.
    Make sure to save some butter for the top.
    Cook for 30 minutes, then lower the heat to 400 degrees F or 200
    degrees C and cook for another 15-30 minutes.
    When the top slices are crisp and golden brown test to see if the
    middle feels tender when pierced with a knife.
    When the potatoes are cooked, run a knife around the inside of the
    pan to ensure the potatoes aren't stuck anywhere.
    Place a plate over the cake tin and quickly invert.
    To make a garnish, finely chop the garlic and parsley.
    Mix together, sprinkle over the hot potato cake and serve.

    Roast Chicken-Bare Minimum

    1? hours 15 min prep

    1 (2-3 lb) farm raised whole chickens
    kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
    2 teaspoons minced thyme (optional)
    unsalted butter, for serving
    Dijon mustard, for serving (also optional)

    Preheat the oven to 450?F
    Rinse the chicken and dry it inside and out very well. The idea is to
    create very dry heat and prevent steam. (Strange, I know).
    Salt and pepper the cavity lightly, then truss the bird.
    Scatter about 1 tablespoon salt over the skin of the bird, as evenly
    as you can. Season with pepper. Don't add any liquid or anything.
    Place the chicken in a saut? pan or roasting pan and in the oven.
    Roast it until it's done, 50 to 60 minutes.
    Remove it from the oven and add the thyme, if using, to the pan.
    Baste the chicken with the juices and thyme and let it rest for 15
    minutes.
    Remove the twine. Carve into individual portions.
    The cookbook says to serve with the mustard and butter
    for "slathering" on the bird, but I found this a little excessive and
    left it out. Anyway, it was still delicious.

    Re: Budget101.com : Bare Cupboard Recipes


    In the Chocolate Chip cookie bar recipe, what is baking butter? This may be a
    silly question, but I would like to make them and just want to make sure that
    regular butter will work.
    Thank You

    RE: Budget101.com : Bare Cupboard Recipes - baking butter


    I looked up what baking butter is and it is apparently a low fat butter substitute.



    Note: Mrs. Bateman's Butterlike (tm) Baking Butter (tm) is a very low-fat butter substitute that I have been pleased with, overall. If you don't have a local source, contact Bateman's Baking Butter, Inc., 125 South State Street, Rigby, ID 83442, (800)574-6822 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
