Sleep On It: Prepare Delicious Meals the Night Before That You Can Pop in the Oven the Next Day!
Company is coming and you can’t imagine how you’re going to find the time to cook for them. That’s when you will reach for Sleep On It by Carol Gordon, an paperback compilation of homey recipes from innkeepers across America. All of these recipes are intended to be assembled the night before, refrigerated, and popped in the oven the next day.
The recipes are organized by course. Appetizers include classic dips and meatballs as well as easy versions of shrimp rémoulade and chicken liver pâté. Breakfast stratas (layered casseroles) — like Southwest Strata, composed of flour tortillas, refried beans, spinach, and cheese — can make a fine lunch or supper. There are dinners featuring pork loin, veal, lamb, brisket, chicken and shrimp. Dessert recipes include Vietnamese Bread Pudding, black raspberry crepes, pies, cakes, and frozen and baked fruit.
