Reviewed Parmesan Finger Tots

Jun 25, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These were extremely tasty, as was the dip. I baked them on a foil lined pan so the cleanup was easy. I flipped them after 10 minutes and salted the bottoms. The yogurt dip was good and I'll try adding chopped fresh chives to the leftovers and use on a baked potato. Don't skimp on the Parmesan cheese! "

Move over Manwich!! I made this tonight along with the Parmesan Finger Tots. The sweetness of the pineapple juice was great. I cooked it a little longer in the end so it wasn't so runny. Make sure that you toast the buns. I buttered the buns, then toasted them in my toaster oven. They held up well to the Sloppy Los. I am allergic to beef, s"

I made 1/4 recipe for myself last night. They were great and went well with the meatloaf. I saved the skins and used them for "hash browns" in the morning with a little shallot and a strip of bacon. I added some water and let it evaporate as they cooked since my skins were a little dry. Really tasty! It was a bonus to get the additional meal "

Since you eat first with your eyes, I knew immediately that I would make this tart. I used grape tomatoes and made this just for myself. I added one slice onion cut in fourths to the tomatoes and ended up putting it in a pot pie for one pan. After I plated it, I lightly drizzled it with balsmic vinegar. I ate it hot and it was terrific! I'll...

This rice was very, very good. I didn't have lime, so I used lemon rind and it was still tasty. We made the whole menu from the show and my family can't wait till we have this again. The cilantro really made the rice special. It didn't taste too coconutty at all - just delicious!""

This was my first attempt at making Thai food. What a great introduction! I only added about 2 TBSP of curry paste because I thought it would be too spicy.It wasn't. I could have added more, but now I have some left over to use when I make it with shrimp. I couldn't find my lime, so I used a mix of lemon and clementine orange juices. It was ...

I made this for our 4th of July breakfast grill. I used peaches and it came out terrific! I bought a lemon verbena plant and this was the first time I used it in cooking. It imparted a mild lemon flavor and scent. Yum! I would make this again in a heartbeat."

I made these last night and they were so tasty. I only did 4 jalapenos, so I cut back accordingly. These were terrific! The surprising thing was that they were just as good or better served cold with ham and eggs the next morning. This recipe really shows that Aarti is a great chef, even when she's not using strictly Indian spices!
