Great Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

This is one of my own creations. There are many stuffed bell pepper recipes in American cuisine, of course. Usually the peppers are baked. I find, however, that steaming the bell peppers produces a texture in the bell peppers’ flesh that is more desirable – still a little firm and chewy, and sweeter than when baked.

Preparing this Great Stuffed Bell Peppers recipe can make for a whole, balanced meal, as you will see in the ingredients. Still, they can just as well be served as one course in a multi-course meal. They go great with chicken dishes, fried rice, salads and soups or stews as well.

One of the most important holidays in America is Thanksgiving Day, and this Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham Au Gratin dish is perfect for the occasion.

Also sometimes referred to as “scalloped potatoes”, this is distinctly North American. Some will argue the original recipes for scalloped potatoes came out of Ireland and/or England. However, potatoes are native to America. It follows logically that early European settlers would take advantage of their availability. Regardless of actual region of origin, Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham au Gratin is, and has been for centuries, an American traditional and beloved dish.

Shrimp Scampi

Italian-American Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

Shrimp Scampi Supreme is a classic example of Italian immigrant influence on American cuisine. “Scampi” are actually lobster-like crustaceans, but much smaller – about the size of a jumbo prawn (shrimp). They have pale pink shells, also like the larger lobsters. When Italian cooks immigrated to America, true scampi were hard to come by. So, they started using jumbo prawns with exceptionally satisfying results. They continued to call the dish “scampi”, but added “shrimp” to the name. Hence, “Shrimp Scampi” came into existence, a truly original American dish. There are many versions of it, but this one is my favorite, thus the name: Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

One of the more traditional methods of preparing scampi in Italy is to sauté them in white wine, olive oil, chopped onion and minced garlic. This American Shrimp Scampi Supreme recipe follows that much of the tradition, but adds a couple herbs: parsley and tarragon.

Southern Soul Deep Fried Alligator is about as American “Soul Food” as you can get. If you’re too squeamish about the idea of eating alligator meat, you can substitute pork or chicken. But for the real ethnic experience, hey – turn the tables on those man-eating amphibians and serve some up on the table.
