Reviewed Sausage Gravy

Aug 22, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Super good!! I have made this three times already. I use regular breakfast sausage, and 2% milk instead of whole because that's just what we always have. Sometimes, if I have it in hand, I add a spash of heavy cream to add a little bit of richness, since we don't use whole milk. I use canned biscuits because I don't like to bake. This recipe is...

Aug 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these with tilapia, and I followed the recipe as directed. I made them for my husband and my little sister. She loves fish, my husband hates fish; they both really loved these. They both requested it again. As for the remoulade, my sister thought it was too mayonnaise-y, so she added mustard, lemon juice and hot sauce to her liking. I don't"

The sliders were great. I changed the recipe a lot. I used .66 pounds of ground beef, about 10 minced white mushrooms, 3 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce and the whole can of beans. I forgot to use the mustard, but it's ok. I ended up with 16 patties, and I served them with bbq sauce, bacon and crispy fried onions. My husband loved them and I l"

I only made the crispy onion straws and they are great. We put them over the Neely's recipe for sloppy joes, and also over BBQ bacon cheese burgers, and they compliment both dishes very well. These onion straws definitely beat the ones from the can :) "

This is my go-to recipe for sloppy joes. My husband and I LOVE it. I usually don't use red bell pepper, just to save money. I also don't use as much beef because it's just two of us. I use just a little over half a pound, and I add minced mushrooms to make it a little healthier. We also add about 3/4 of an onion. Sometimes we use ground turkey. I "

My chicken came out good, and moist. However, the breading didn't stay on :( Especially not after the 6 minutes in the oven. That was probably my fault, that's why I didn't take a star away. My family likes it, though, and I had to make more after lunch so they can eat it again for dinner. "

Amazing! The potatoes came out SO good! I had to make two batches to feed my family, and so the potatoes could be in a single layer in my small oven pan. I also seasoned them with extra pepper and some garlic salt because I like potatoes with lots of seasoning. They turned out great! They are well worth the effort! I used a non stick pan and had n"

Super good, even though I was only able to let the chicken sit in the buttermilk for two and a half hours because we planned poorly. But otherwise, this was delicious. My family made sure to tell me to make it again. The best part was I could set it up, and my husband finished it up in the oven while I did an errand. Super easy, and super good! "

I just tried this recipe and the fish came out super good! Everyone in my house loved it. My mom even said was better than Denny's lol! The potatoes were ok, but that was my fault because I did not execute correctly, I think. The tartar sauce was too "mayonnaise-y" for me (that's not Sandra's fault), so my sister doctored it with more relish, a lo"

This dish came out very tasty! I don't know much about beer and had never cooked with before, but I am pleased with the results. I used a bottle of Newcastle and a bottom round roast. Also, I forgot to buy prunes at the store, so I used raisins. I added some mushrooms because we really like them, and I let the whole pot simmer on the stove for tw...

I made this chicken again last night, and it was great! I placed aluminum foil over the chicken before placing the second skillet on top (I'm too lazy to wash it haha) and I think that made the chicken release more juices. With that and the brown bits, I made a gravy and it was delicious! My family couldn't get enough! There's never leftovers afte"

Excellent recipe! We made a few modifications: I cooked the chicken first, then added diced onions and garlic until soft. After, I added a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes and the balsamic vinegar, along with a couple sprigs of mint. I wanted more liquid to the sauce so I added a can of tomato sauce and a little more vinegar. The outcome was exc"

This dish came out very delicious for me. I substituted chicken stock for the wine and canned tomato sauce for the tomatoes because we aren't huge fans of chunky tomatoes. Overall, it was tasty and had just the right amount of sauce. A good way to use up tuna cans :)"

Awesome recipe! I've never cooked with balsamic vinegar before and I didn't like the smell of it, but the ketchup balanced it out nicely. I probably will add a little less next time, and some sriracha, but for the first time making it, it was amazing. Very nice change to my usual boring pork tenderloin :)"

I made this recipe because I thought it would be an easy way to sneak avocado into my husband's diet, since he hates it. I made a few substitutions: I used brown rice, two avocados, and a combination of mint leaves and cilantro, since I had no basil. I also used chicken broth to cook the rice and in place of the water in the dressing. The outcome...
