Sometimes the tastiest recipes are the simple ones.
Could make my own, but Wishbone did it for me. 🙂
1 cup BBQ Sauce
Lots of variety, from sweet to hot. I like Sweet Baby Ray’s.
1 can Cranberry Relish
Unable to find cranberry relish locally, I have used cranberry sauce (NOT cranberry jelly).
Marinate brisket in dressing for a few hours or overnight
Preheat oven to 300°
Wrap brisket in foil and bake in pan 21/2 hours
Remove from foil and refrigerate with juices overnight
Combine pan juices, BBQ sauce & cranberry relish to make ‘gravy’
Slice meat against the grain
Pour gravy over sliced meat and reheat at 300° for 1 hour.
Juno’s Pregnant Dates
24 dried, pitted dates.
24 Marcona almonds, toasted
(Regular almonds also acceptible)
Place almonds in a heavy, ungreased skillet.
Stir often over medium heat until golden brown.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread nuts in one layer on ungreased shallow baking pan.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden.
12 slices thick-cut bacon.
Preheat oven to 400°
Stuff an almond into each date.
Cut each slice of bacon in half crosswise
Wrap each date in 1/2 slice of bacon
Secure with toothpick near end, to avoid almond
Place dates on baking sheet lined with foil.
Bake about 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through, until bacon cooked.
Baking time varies depending on accuracy of oven and thickness of bacon.
Serves 6 as appetizers
