Good morning everyone! I hope you had a terrific weekend and that you're ready for a great week! If you're not quite ready, I think I may have just the thing to take a bit of the sting out of this Monday morning! How about a giveaway !? Maybe a basket of wonderful mixes and kitchen items like this...
Not too long ago the lovely Christy from Southern Plate asked if I would like to be a part of this amazing giveaway and I am so glad I said yes! I'd never used House-Autry Mills products before now, but I tell you I am hardily impressed with everything I've tried so far.
The first product I tried was the "Pork Breader." I used it to deep fry some very lean boneless pork chops and it was delicious. The breading is light and flavorful. It was delightfully seasoned, not heavy... you could still tell it was pork that you were eating and the coating helped to keep those lean chops nice and moist. Some of the breading products available in the market are so heavily seasoned that it over takes the flavor of the meat. The House-Autry breader enhanced the flavor of the pork just beautifully.
I know that some folks won't want to deep fry their food, so I'm happy to let you know that House-Autry also makes a line of breaders that are made for oven use! Personally, I think a little deep fried food is good for the soul on occasion! Just in moderation :)
The other House-Autry product I tried was their hushpuppy with onion mix. Oh my word! So good! I served them with the fried pork chops, some mashed potatoes and fresh sautéed green beans and we were in heaven. I love hushpuppies but I just never think to make them. Now that I know there is such a simple and quick way to make them, I'm sure I'll be making them more often. I'm dreaming up some new recipes for those "puppies" already :)
