This is a simple recipe for sweet potato casserole. But it is also the best I have tasted, enriched with eggs, milk, and rum, and topped with a crunchy pecan streusel. It is a standard at all holiday dinners in my family. The amount of rum can be varied according to taste (the casserole is also good without it, if you so desire.)
Delicious rolls of breaded eggplant with the taste of eggplant Parmesan are stuffed with a garlicky Italian cheese filling and baked. Serve with your favorite tomato sauce or cream sauce, sprinkled with cheese.
An savory mix of veal, pork and beef, cooked with onion, celery, carrots, garlic, wine and herbs, is enriched with an opulent Parmesan cheese sauce. Roll the mix with strips of fresh pasta to make stuffed tubes, then bake with a creamy tomato sauce.
Envision a thick taco brimming with chopped tomatoes, ground beef, lettuce, and lots of shredded cheese. You'll have a pretty good idea of what this nifty salad will be like. Except this one you top with a Catalina dressing. Refrigerate overnight and enjoy.
Best if cooking is started the day before serving. Boston butt is the easiest to make on a small scale. Use a shoulder or a whole shoulder (which is a shoulder plus the Boston butt) for larger crowds. The sauce skimmed off the top is very, very hot and can also be used to make terribly hot chicken wings.
