Four Foods on Friday #50
50! Val is always thinking of questions for Four Foods on Friday on her fabulous cooking and recipe blog, Fun, Crafts and Recipes. Here are this weeks questions.
#1. Pasta. How do you tell when it’s done? Do you cook on medium or high?
I have heard that you can throw a noodle onto the ceiling and if it sticks it is done. I haven’t tried that one. I cook pasta on medium, where it is just barely boiling. I cook it as long as the package directions say. Usually it is 10 – 12 minutes.
#2. Deep frying. What kind of oil do you use? I use Wesson oil.
#3. Grilling. Do you grill on foil or directly on the grill? Hubby puts the meat directly on the grill. The grates give it that grilled flavor. (I think that is why. Who really knows? Hubby cooks, and I am not questioning his methods. LOL)
#4. Share a recipe that involves cooking something two different ways.Example, for lasagna you might fry the meat and bake the whole dish.
I like Bratwurst when it is fixed on the grill but sometimes I fry it in a little water in a frying pan. (Lame this week. No real recipe.)
