Pampered Chef: Theme Show Theme Show binder

    Help!! I'm putting together my theme show binder and am having a problem finding/thinking up recipes for my Desperate Housewives, Jimmy Buffett/Margaritaville and Hawaiin Luau theme shows.

    For Desperate Housewives, I've got Lawnboy Lemonade and Apricot-Almond Baked Brie.

    For my Hawiian Luau, I've got Luau Lemonade and Hawaiin dip w/fruit kebabs.

    For my Buffet/Margaritaville show, I've got Slushie Margaritas & Cheeseburger Stuffed Calzone.

    I don't need the actual recipes, just suggestions as to what recipes to offer. Most of the good ideas I have already, I got from this site. I can't begin to thank everyone enough for all the support that they give. I know everyone says it but that's because it's true! Thanks in advance to everyone!! Pam :cool:

    Here's are some...

    For the Margaritaville, at least.

    Cheeseburger Stuffed Calzone

    2 packages (11 oz. each) refrigerated French bread dough, divided
    6 slices (3/4 oz. each) American pasteurized process cheese food
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup dill pickle slices, diced
    3/4 cup ketchup
    2 teaspoons yellow mustard
    1 garlic clove, pressed
    1 pound 95% lean ground beef, cooked, crumbled and drained
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/4 cup (1 oz.) grated fresh Parmesan cheese (optional)
    Shredded lettuce, tomato slices and dill pickle slices (optional)

    1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Unroll one package of the bread dough onto Large Round Stone; roll and stretch to edge of baking stone using Baker's Roller. Cut cheese slices in half and arrange evenly over dough to within 1 inch of edge.
    2. Chop onion using Food Chopper. Dice pickles using Utility Knife. In Classis Batter Bowl, combine onion, pickles, ketchup, mustard and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; mix well. Add cooked ground beef; mix well. Spoon meat mixture over cheese; spread evenly. Unroll remaining dough directly over filling by matching top edges of dough and shaping to fit as dough is unrolled. Trim excess dough from corners using Pizza Cutter, forming an even edge. Roll and crimp edges to seal.
    3. Drizzle oil over dough; spread evenly. If desired, grate Parmesan cheese over dough using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Using Pizza Cutter, make three crisscross cuts, about 6 inches long, across center of dough to vent. Bake 18-20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cut into wedges. Serve with toppings, if desired.
    Yield: 8 servings

    Margarita Slushies

    1 can frozen margarita mix or limade
    1 can 7-UP
    1 bottle Corona (no substitutions)
    1 to 1 1/2 cups tequila

    Hope this helps,

    DH recipe ideas

    Hi Pam, I also just wanted to add an idea for your Desperate Housewives theme. I did one over the summer and I served "Tempting Tapas" from the celebrations recipe collection from last season. They were a big hit! Along with a recipe I found in a magazine called "Wysteria Hysteria". It was 1 liter of 7-up, 1 liter of mountain dew and 1/2 cup vodka. (You can always add more or less vodka :p ) And sliced lemons as a garnish on the glasses. You can never have too many ideas with recipes for theme shows!!

    This is from another thread by scottcooks. I just "named" it Lawnboy Lemonade. Actually, I didn't name it, I got the idea from this site. ;) Here you go.

    Fresh Lemonade - sells QSP and USG
    3 large or 4 small lemons
    1 c sugar
    2 qt water

    Slice lemons with USG V-shaped blade right into QSP. add 1c sugar, 2 qt water. Plunge until sugar is dissolved. Pour over ice in glasses. You can remake the recipe using the same lemons once, add another 1 C sugar, 2 qt water, plunge about 18-30 times. This recipe does not store more than 2 or 3 hours - you need to pour it out into another container (no lemon rind) to save it overnight. Raspberry Lemonade: crush 2 handfulls of raspberries before plunging - mix as above. Strawberry Lemonade: chop 4-6 strawberries, add before plunging. Float added strawberry slices in individual drings using ESP.
