Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
Ingredients
  • 2 medium eggplants
  • 1 bunch thyme, divided
  • 10 cloves garlic, 2 finely diced, 8 whole
  • ½ cup plus 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion, small dice
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 8 sprigs fresh oregano
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • 1½ cups coarse breadcrumbs
  • 6 small, fresh mozzarella/burrata
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons basil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut each eggplant in half lengthwise, and spoon out flesh, leaving ½-inch border around each. Chop eggplant and reserve for the tomato sauce.
  3. Divide eggplant rinds, thyme sprigs, whole garlic cloves, and ½ cup oil between 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Turn eggplants to coat with oil; season with salt and pepper and place cut side down. Cover baking sheets tightly with foil, and bake until eggplants are very soft, 40 to 45 minutes.
  4. While the eggplant is roasting, heat two tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add chopped garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chopped eggplant and sauté for two minutes. Add tomatoes, crushing them with your hands as you add them; season with oregano, salt and pepper.
  5. Simmer, partially covered, mashing tomatoes occasionally, until slightly thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Add fresh cherry tomatoes and thyme and set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, toss breadcrumbs and remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Transfer eggplants, thyme and garlic to 2 large, shallow baking dishes, placing eggplants cut side up. Top eggplants with tomato sauce and mozzarella, then sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Bake until mozzarella is bubbling and breadcrumbs are golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with basil. Serve warm.

Recipe of the Day: Grilled Peach and Corn Salad
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Salad
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 4 ears corn, shucked
  • 3 peaches, each cut into 4 wedges
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ Fresno pepper, halved, seeded and thinly sliced into half-moons
  • ½ small shallot, finely minced
  • ⅓ cup toasted sliced almonds
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta (2 ounces)
  • 4 cups baby arugula (2½ ounces)
Instructions
  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Drizzle some olive oil on the corn and peaches and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill the corn and peaches, turning them periodically, until they develop dark grill and char marks on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes for the peaches and 10 to 12 minutes for the corn. Let cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, Fresno pepper, shallot, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Cut the corn kernels from the cobs and discard the cobs. Slice the peach wedges crosswise so each piece has some grill marks. Add the corn kernels and sliced peaches to the large bowl of dressing along with the almonds and feta. Toss gently to coat. Check for seasoning and add more salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Arrange a bed of arugula on a large platter. Top with the peach and corn salad.

Burgers

Almost-Famous Animal-Style Burgers

Almost-Famous Animal-Style Burgers
It’s sooo pretty.
Author:
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Burgers
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • ½ teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 pounds ground beef chuck (preferably 60 percent lean)
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • ¼ cup sliced dill pickles
  • ¾ cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 to 8 thin slices tomato
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • 8 slices American cheese
Instructions
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and ¾ teaspoon salt, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and soft, about 30 minutes. (If the onions brown too quickly, reduce the heat to low.) Uncover, increase the heat to medium high and continue to cook, stirring often, until caramelized, about 8 more minutes. Add ½ cup water to the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer, stirring, until the water evaporates, about 2 more minutes; transfer to a bowl and set aside. (The onions can be made up to 3 days ahead; cover and refrigerate, then reheat before using.)
  2. Mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar in a bowl; set aside. Shape the beef into 8 patties, about 4 inches wide and ½ inch thick.
  3. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat; lightly brush with vegetable oil. Toast the buns on the griddle, split-side down. Spread each toasted bun bottom with about 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture, then top with a few pickles, some lettuce, 1 or 2 slices tomato and another dollop of the mayonnaise mixture; set aside. (Keep the griddle hot.)
  4. Season both sides of the patties with salt and pepper. Working in batches if necessary, put the patties on the griddle and cook 3 minutes. Spread about 1½ teaspoons mustard on the uncooked side of each patty, then flip and top each with 1 slice cheese; continue cooking about 2 more minutes for medium doneness. Top 4 of the patties with caramelized onions, then cover with the remaining patties, cheese-side up. Sandwich the double patties on the buns.

Lasagna

Lasagna Party Ring

Lasagna Party Ring
Move over, chips and salsa.
Author:
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Lasagna
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ pound ground beef, 80:20 ratio of lean to fat
  • ¾ pound ground sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 28 ounces tomato sauce
  • 15 ounces ricotta
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan
  • ¼ cup basil,chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 18-20 cooked lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup marinara sauce, to serve
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large pot over high heat, add oil, onions, and garlic, and cook until they begin to brown, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the beef, sausage, salt, and pepper, cooking until all of the moisture has evaporated and the meat is starting to brown on the edges, breaking the meat up as you stir.
  4. Add the tomato sauce, then reduce heat to a simmer, cooking the sauce down until the mixture becomes extremely thick, almost paste-like. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. In a bowl, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, basil, and egg, mixing until smooth. Set aside.
  6. Slice 6 of the lasagna noodles in half. These will serve as the layers in between the meat and the cheese mixture.
  7. Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray, then lay about 10-12 noodles into the bottom of the pan, fanning them out in an overlapping pattern. One end of the noodles should be just as tall as the center of the pan, and the other end of the noodles should hang over the sides of the pan.
  8. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella into the bottom of the pan on top of the noodles. This will help bind the noodles together when cooked.
  9. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in a ring over the top of the mozzarella, then lay half of the cut noodle pieces over the top to create a noodle layer. 10. Spread all of the ricotta mixture over the noodles in an even ring, then layer with the rest of the noodles and the rest of the meat sauce.
  10. Fold the edges of the lasagna noodles hanging over the sides of the pan back towards the center, creating another overlapping pattern.
  11. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella evenly on top.
  12. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the cheese is a deep golden brown.
  13. Cool for about an hour, then carefully invert the ring onto a cutting board.
  14. Slice the ring, then top with any extra Parmesan and basil.
  15. Place a small bowl filled with marinara at the center of the ring, for dipping.
  16. Serve!
