Homestyle Fried Potatoes

Homestyle Fried Potatoes

I’ve been making these potatoes since my daughter was very young. She loved them so much that they were a regular side dish on most nights.

Working in a diner, I serve home fries, as a side with eggs and bacon all the time. People love their potatoes for breakfast. Imagine having them with dinner. Let me show you how I make my Homestyle Fried Potatoes.

Crab Rangoon Dip With Wonton Chips

2013-10-28 18.46.15

I have to believe, everybody loves Crab Rangoons, they’re so delicious! The luscious lump crab and cream cheese wrapped up in a wonton wrapper then deep-fried, so yummy!  I’m sure there are a lot of recipes out there for Crab Rangoon, but I’m biased. My Crab Rangoon Dip is one you’ll really enjoy.

Yields: 2 servings
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
1 pound lump crab meat
1 8-ounce bar cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup of Greek Yogurt, plain
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon confectioner sugar
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons freshly chopped chives (reserve 1 tablespoon for the top)
2 cups of freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (reserve 1/2 cup for the top)
1 cup of bread crumbs, plain

Directions:
First, preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
In a large bowl, place the cream cheese, plain Greek yogurt. Add Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, lemon zest, freshly squeezed lemon, confectioner sugar ( to balance the acidity), Old Bay, garlic powder, freshly chopped chives, (reserving 1 tablespoon back for the top),  and 2 cups of freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (reserving half a cup back for the top). Mix to combine

Finally, double check the lump crab for any shells. Fold in the lump crab meat so it doesn’t break up too much. You want to have large pieces of crab meat running through the dip. Spray a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add the crab mixture into the dish spreading it evenly throughout.

Sprinkle the reserved grated cheese all over the top. Next, evenly sprinkle the bread crumbs all over the top of the grated cheese. Finally, the reserved chives. Drizzle the top with olive oil so it browns nicely.  Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.

Directions For Wonton Chips:
Simply take wonton wrappers and cut them into triangles, spray them on one side with non-stick spray, lay them out on a baking sheet, bake at 350 for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with crispy wontons.

Serve hot with a side of the wonton chips.

Note: To double the amount of dip, double the ingredients.
