Jordan Pond House Popover Recipe

This is the recipe that comes with the popover pans purchased at Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park near Bar Harbor, Maine. One thing the chef told us - make the dough in the morning, refrigerate all day, then remove from the fridge 1 hour before cooking to bring the dough back up to room temperature. Mix again then bake.

Frozen veggies added to Trader Joe's Chicken Breast Medallions w/ Coconut Red Curry Sauce to make a more well-rounded meal. Delicious served with some rice

Healthy Chicken Nuggets with Herbs

Baked, not fried! But full of flavor.
Note - you will use less than half the egg/milk mixture, hence the nutritional values entered. If you want to double the recipe, do not double the egg/milk values as you'll just be wasting them.

Mexican Chicken Filling

An adaptation of a Rachel Ray recipe.

A great filling for any Mexican dish, such as tacos, enchiladas or burritos. Health numbers calculated with corn tortillas for enchiladas. Freezes great!

Turkey Lasanga with Veggies (no spinach!)

Put in turkey instead of beef, use low-fat or fat-free cheeses and add some veggies, and bam! A great tasting lasagna for under 300 calories per serving.

This recipe makes a LOT of food. Great for parties. I make this in one 9x18 pan, and one 9-9 pan, then bake both pans at the same time, however you could prepare 2 9x12 pans, and cook one on Monday and one on Tuesday, for example.

Shrimp Stir-Fry

A great, easy to make stir fry. Use fresh or frozen veggies; recipe calculated with frozen as it's now winter here.
