Hot Dog's & blueberry's

Hot dog's,blueberry's and baked beans month! The fourth ingredient, "pickle"
Never had that combination..Our hot dog is just with sauerkraut and mustard or ketchup and onion.But with a little help and imagination I created a hot dog you've never seen before.
I can't find the original hot dog sandwich,so I used an ordinary similar sandwich.
The pickle was sliced very thin,with an peeler and dried in an oven on 90┬║C for about 1 hour.Now this is amazing! a very crispy pickle.
For the sauce I used a can of baked beans 150gr,1 shallot (diced),2 cloves garlic (crushed), 50gr chorizo and 1 cup olerosso sherry.
Saute the garlic and shallot, add the beans and the sherry and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
Let it cool down and blend it untill you've got a sauce..Add some olerosso to smooth it.
I really didn't know what to do with the blueberry's and don't like them.But as a jam it's perfect.
For 100gr blueberry you need 100gr sugar,heat up and let it cook for 15 minutes.Serve with
carmellised walnut,and the blueberry sauce,on ice cream.

The Dutchess Cooks was started in 2010. After years of cooking, grilling, baking and reading other people’s blogs, I thought “why not start my own blog??” And I did, in 2010, but already after a short period of time, a blog wasn’t enough, and I started my own website. It’s not my goal to publish or come up with fancy and difficult recipes: just good and delicious food with an international twist! Straight from my plate to yours!

White eggplant "Who's the boss" #133

Last weekend we were at the NKBBQ (Dutch championship).
The things I've seen there had inspired me for doing a lot of new things on the bbq.
One of the first things we see was the stand of the "BBQBabes" with an great eggplant slice..
On the other site of the event there was an stand with fresh white eggplant,and a lot of peppers.
We also bought some salt from "the man with the pan" and the" Sweet Baby Ray's" sauce.
Ok here's the plan,I've got a lot of eggplant ,pepper,potato and onion.Cut everything in pieces.
Put a skillet on high heat and bake the veggies and potato's.
Add the sauce to the veggies,and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
Make some skewers from chicken breast and grill direct.
We had a perfect dinner..Now who's the boss....the sauce or....

Enjoy with....

Grilling @ Work #132

Today I had to bring my grill to work..this is so much fun....Your colleague's will love it!!
Great for lunch and for the mood!!
I opted for two types of burgers, The Jalapeno's & Booze burger...o yeah booze at lunchtime....
Ok here we go.
For 10 hamburgers use 1Kg ground beef,fresh Jalapeno's to taste,1cup brown sugar,1cup Sweet baby Ray's sauce (or ketchup) 2 gloves garlic (crushed),1 sweet onion (diced), 2 eggs,1 cup breadcrum.
Put everything in a large bowl and mix well.
For the booze burgers change the Jalapeno's for 1 cup Whisky. The rest is all the same.
Make the hamburgers with a special tool,or like I do, with the cover of an old jar!
Now I've got burgers from around 100 Gr.
As a topping we used cheddar,pineapple and onion.
The boys at the office loved it...You've got to try it!

Thanks Robyn (Grillgrrrl) for introduce of the grill at work scene;-)

Beer Sausage & Eggplant #131

Last Weekend we were on the NK BBQ (Dutch championship BBQ).
We had a very nice day,with beautiful weather and good friends JW and Marjolein from "Picture a recipe".
They bought us a nice bottle of Mississippi spicy sauce.and we picked up a bag of "BlackRanch charcoal".
With a car full of goods,it was time to go to the BBQ event and look, taste, and buy some things.
I bought a sweet baby Ray sauce and a special salt from "the man with the pan"
We also getting some eggplants from the "BBQbabes" and a bunch of Jalapeno's.
Inspired on the bbqbabes,grilled eggplant,and the sausage I've seen at JW's place,I decided to make beer sausage and grilled eggplant.
I'm telling ya it was soo good... Cooking with booze is always good.
Okay,back to the grill,heat up till high heat,place a skillet on top and saute an sweet onion.
In the meantime put the sausage on the grate for a minute or so,(just for the grillmarks) and put them with the onions in the skillet.
Get a bottle of beer of your choice (we had the Wieckse rose beer)open with your Dickies buckle..so glad I had a buckle with opener.;-)and do the beer in the skillet too.
Cook for about 20 minutes with the lid closed.
Grill the eggplants slices with some "man with the pan" salt and some olive oil.
