Frannie's Fixin's & Cookin' Tips

Making Bread Crumbs
Need to make bread crumbs? Use frozen bread because you can grate the frozen bread into crumbly pieces more easily than using fresh bread.

Substitute for Sour Cream
If you've run out of sour cream or cream cheese, you can put cottage cheese in a blender and process until it's smooth to use in dips or spreads. You also can thin it with a bit of yogurt.


Broiled Roquefort Steaks

INGREDIENTS:

4 ounces Roquefort (or a Bleu) cheese, crumbled
6 Tablespoons butter, softened
Dash or two of Worcestershire sauce
4 (8-ounce) strip steaks or fillets, 1/2 to 3/4–inch thick
and at room temperature
Pepper to taste
4 slices rye bread, toasted and lightly buttered
(butter optional)

TO PREPARE:

1. Place cheese in a small bowl. Add 4 Tablespoons butter
and Worcestershire sauce and mix with wooded spoon
until smooth.
2. Wipe steaks dry and sprinkle with pepper. (The
Roquefort topping will provide enough salt.) Saute
steaks over high heat 2 – 3 minutes on each side in
remaining butter. Remove pan from heat.
3. Spoon Roquefort mixture over steaks, and put under
broiler for a few seconds, until mixture melts.
4. Toast rye bread and butter lightly. Arrange steaks on
top of toast and serve at once.

I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.

God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.'
