Cheesy, yet they're full of good taste

Postby fire_code » Tue Mar 13, 2007 2:21 pm

When this article came up in my search results I thought they were talking about our regular members... well except for the having good taste part :p .

Anyway, here's a receipe submission from Jason Martindale "a Mississauga firefighter who likes to cook". That's all good, but can anyone from Mississauga actually verify that he's a good cook? :D

You don't have to wait for a party to prepare a cheeseball. This one makes a tangy spread for sandwiches as well as snack crackers.
Salmon Cheeseballs
Adapted from a recipe sent in by readers Jason Martindale and Amy Bartholomew. They don't recall the origin. Martindale is a Mississauga firefighter who likes to cook. I used premium wild Atlantic salmon.
Two 250 g packages block cream cheese, at room temperature
213 g can salmon, well-drained
1/4 lb (120 g) medium orange cheddar, shredded (1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups)
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
1/4 cup prepared horseradish, pressed in sieve to drain well
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup walnut pieces
About 1/2 cup minced parsley
Put cream cheese in large bowl. Mash with fork to break up. Stir in salmon, cheddar, green pepper, horseradish, onion, lemon juice and salt. Mash with fork to blend. Mix in walnuts.
Divide cheese mixture in half. Using moistened hands, roll each half into ball. Wrap each ball in plastic and refrigerate 1 hour to firm up.
Place parsley on flat plate. Roll balls in parsley to coat. Wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow flavours to blend.
Makes 2 cheeseballs.

I used to live on Tuna melt omelettes back when I was trying to drop a few pounds.

just beat 3 eggs and when they are set up crumble a drained can of tuna in there toss some shredded cheddar on top and "flop over the flap"---cook till it starts to brown,then flip the omelette over and brown that side.

If you want you can use 4 eggs but remove 2 or 3 yolks for a lower cholesterol version.
