This is really good spread on crackers, or small party-size slices of bread.

Beer Cheese Spread Recipe

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. minced parsley (optional)
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
1/3 cup (about) beer

In small bowl, mix cheeses, garlic, parsley, salt and hot pepper sauce. Beat with electric hand mixer, rotary beater or wire whip. Beat in enough beer for creamy spreading consistency. Cover and chill for several hours, or overnight. For easier spreading on crackers or breads, remove from refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving. Makes 1-1/2 cups.

Leftover Ham Recipes  

This is for "Drink" who wanted to know how to make perfect homemade bread. I learned how to do this from my Mom who died a couple years ago at the age of 99. She was of German background and was a wonderful cook. This is a recipe that can't be rushed. All good things take a long labor of love.

Rye Bread Recipe

1-1/2 pkg. of dry yeast
4 C water
4 T sugar
2/3 portion rye graham flour (see change below if this is not available)
1/3 portion white flour
4 t. salt

Mix together 1 1/2 pkg. yeast, 1 T. sugar, 1 C warm water. When the yeast is dissolved add remaining 3 C. water, 4 t. salt,3 T. sugar. Stir in 4 cups rye flour, and 2 cups white flour. I usually alternately add 1 C rye, 1 C. graham (if available), and 1 C. white and repeat once. This makes a nice sponge. Let rise until double. Using only white flour add until a knead able consistency. Knead on floured surface for at least 8 minutes adding more white flour or until satiny. My Mom was really insist ant about the 8 minutes and it takes that long for it to become satiny, Grease bowl and place dough in bowl and pat top with shortening. Let rise until double. Punch down and form into loaves. Let rise again. Bake 45 to 50 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden born. Brush top with margarine or butter.

Just a note about the flour. For many years Mom could get rye graham flour but they quit making it so she told me to use the rye, graham and white. I have purchased the rye, graham (or you could use whole wheat) at Whole Foods or a health food store. Last tip is when allowing dough to rise cover with a cloth and place in a warm area.

This has always been a dish I have enjoyed preparing for company.

The gravy from it, is so good served over mashed potatoes.
I like to dredge the chicken in Krustez Bake & Fry Mix rather than seasoned flour. If desired, remove skin from chicken.

1 fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 lbs.) cut up
6 cups dry bread cubes
Cooking oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
1-1/4 tsp. sage
2 tbsp. chopped onion
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can cream of chicken soup

Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixed with some salt and pepper; brown in hot oil. Combine bread cubes, salt, pepper and sage, onion, melted butter and 1/2 can of the soup. Arrange chicken in large roasting pan.

Pile dressing in the center. Make gravy with pan drippings; adding 2 tbsp. flour and enough water with remaining soup to make 2 cups. Cook and stir until thickened. Pour over the chicken. Cover tightly and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
6 servings.
