makes 8 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

Guests will be clamoring to devour every last morsel of this indulgent appetizer. Serve the high-flavor bread with a serrated knife close at hand to cut through the bottom of the bread loaf.

1 1/2-lb artisan bread loaf
1/2 cup melted butter
3 garlic cloves, pressed
3 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 {8-oz} package extra sharp Cheddar cheese
1 {8-oz} package Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
1 {4-oz} jar diced pimientos, drained
8 cooked & crumbled bacon slices
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut the bread loaf to the bottom but not all the way through crosswise & lengthwise into 1-inch cubes using a serrated knife. Place the loaf onto a lightly greased foil-lined half sheet pan. Stir together the butter, the garlic & the chives. Gently pull apart the bread cubes & spoon the butter mixture into the crevasses. Repeat over the entire loaf. Cover the bread loosely with foil & bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, using a box grater, shred the cheeses & toss them together with the pimientos, the bacon & the parsley in a large bowl. Remove the bread from oven & let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Gently pull apart the bread cubes; generously stuff the cheese mixture into the bread crevasses. Repeat over the entire loaf. Return the bread to the oven & bake uncovered 15 minutes or until  the cheese is melted & bubbly.

The Extra Point

A variety of your favorite cheese would make delicious substitutions. Try Havarti, Swiss or Gouda, if desired.

makes 6 servings

Game Changer

The ribs carry a traditional flavor due to the ingredients used in the dry rub. They are delicious with or without barbecue sauce. Honey-Ginger Barbecue Sauce can be brushed over the ribs 10 minutes before removing them from the grill, if desired. 

2 cups hickory wood chips
2 {3-lb} slabs St. Louis-style or baby back ribs
2 limes
Sweet & Spicy Chili Rub

Soak the wood chips in water for about 30 minutes. Drain. Place in heavy-duty foil & make a packet. Poke a few holes in the foil. Pull the thin membrane from the backside of the ribs. Juice the limes over the slabs. Pat the Sweet & Spicy Chili Rub liberally on both sides of the ribs. Let stand 20 minutes. 

Build a fire with the charcoal & push it over to one side of the grill. Add the packet of wood chips. Top with the grill grate. Place the ribs over the empty side to utilize an indirect heat cooking method. Top with the lid & adjust the vents in order to maintain a temperature between 225 to 275 degrees. Cook the ribs over indirect heat 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 185 to 190 degrees. You’re looking for a pink smoke ring in the pork. Check the progress every 30 minutes. Be sure the side closest to the heat isn’t cooking too quickly. Rotate the ribs if necessary. Once the ribs reach the correct temperature, remove them from the grill. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

The Extra Point

Accompany the ribs with Classic Macaroni & Cheese & Buttermilk Fried Okra for a delicious weeknight meal.

makes 5 servings

Game Changer

Subtle ingredient substitutions can change the flavor instantly. Try sorghum or molasses in place of the honey & coarse ground or spicy mustard in place of the Dijon for richer, seasonal notes.

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 {16-oz} package cole slaw mix
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1 celery rib, sliced
4 bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
Garnishes: Fresh parsley & ground pepper

Whisk together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk in the oil in a slow steady stream until combined. Stir in the slaw mix, the onion & celery. Fold in the bacon & the blue cheese just before serving. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

Try topping the slaw over mixed salad greens with grilled chicken & potato salad for a delicious lunch meal.
