Pampered Chef: Outstanding Rectangular Baker recipes

    :eek: Help! I need a good show recipe for the "Rectangular Baker"! My host just booked for next Thursday (1 week), and wants to use her new Burgandy Baker...I'd like to send her several options to choose from. I know I can do any of the brownies or many desserts, but what about a savory meal other than roasted meat/chicken? A good casserole or something like that to demo? The show is at 6pm, and she really likes to put on a good party. I use my pyrex 9x13(don't have the stone baker yet) for everything, but wasn't sure what would be a great demo recipe. Thanks for all your help. I love coming here for advise, and usually find it before I even ask!
    Have a great night,

    I know you're looking for savor ybut the only thing I have done in my 9x13 is the Berries & Cream Brownie Squares - I did them the day before yesterday for a PTA meeting and the whole crowed was totally WOW'ed.

    If it's at 6pm and she wants to feed the group, try the inside out lasagna from the Stone!! I serve that at dinner parties where I know I am going to have a crowd. I am usually entertaining young troops, so they eat alot!!!! She can have the pasta boiled for you ahead of tiime. You can even show the Rice Cooker for browning hamburger, or have her do that ahead too!! It's a great way to show the 12" pan!! It does bake for an hour, so you may have to take orders while it's in the oven. Demo, collect, mingle, then eat???

    Inside Out Lasagna

    1 package (12 oz) uncooked bow tie pasta
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1 1/4 pounds 95% lean ground beef or Italian sausage links, casings removed
    2 garlic cloves, pressed
    1 jar (26 oz) marinara sauce

    1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cook pasta according to package directions in Professional (8qt) Stockpot; drain

    2. Meanwhile, chop onion using Food Chopper. Place onion and ground beef in Family (12in) Skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking beef into small crumbles. Press garlic into beef mixture using Garlic Press. Stir in pasta sauce and tomatoes, remove from heat.

    3. In Stainless (2qt) Mixing Bowl, lightly beat eggs with Stainless Whisk. Add cheeses, parsley, salt and black pepper; mix well.

    4. To assemble lasagna, place cooked pasta into bottom of Rectangular Baker. Top with meat mixture. Spoon ricotta mixture over sauce; spread evenly. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour or until ricotta mixture is set and lightly browned.

    This is always a big hit with the troops at my house!! It would be too much for a normal show, but in this case it might be right up your alley!!

    If you do a recipe search on Cheesy Mostaciolli (sp?) I got that recipe here awhile back, then found it's in an old retired cookbook. It is sooo yummy, and only bakes for about 30 minutes.

    How about doing the recipe for Berries & Cream Brownie Squares. It's featured in the catalog on page 32. Since the hostess has the baker, she could prepare the brownie base ahead of time and you could finish it up at the show. It's pictured beautifully on the page. It is very yummy and seves 20. You could prepare another recipe like Mandarin Pasta Salad or something like that for the savory recipe. HTH

    Ember, where in AK are you?? I am in Wasilla. The thing I love to make is baked penne. Cook the noodles, throw some spaghetti sauce on top, mix it up and sprinkle cheese on top. 350 for 30 mins. Great with the garlic pull-apart bread!

    I agree on the Inside Lasagne - it is one of my favorite PC recips altho I do not do it at a show very much because of the long time to cook. The good thing is you can talk about how easy stoneware is to clean. Be sure to point out that this is one lasagne pan that wont have to soak for 3 days!

    Ember, it's nice to see another consultant in my area! There are many, but not on Chef Success! My parents are building in Willow off Little Lonely Lake. Little town, but so peaceful! Good luck to you in your business!

    Touch Down Taco Dip

    I've made the touch down taco dip and doubled the recipe. That works nicely in the rectangular baker :)

    What we're making...

    Cindy decided on the Inside-out Lasagna and the Mandarin Pasta Salad. I've never made either, so this will be practice week! If she gets $100 in orders before the show I'll provide the Tiramisu Brownie Squares which are sooooo delicious! Thanks for all the advice, I'm always up for more!

    There is ALOT of prep work with both recipes you chose, I would definetly(sp?) make the dressing for the salad ahead of time. Also prep as much of it as you can, this also lets you show off the prep bowls.;)

    How about some recipes in current cookbooks we can sell?

    I love the attached BBQ beef (brisket) and so do my kids (aged 6 & 7)! Leftovers are sliced thin and put on buns. Yum ~ food for a week!
