Marianne’s Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing

While Hubby and I were back home for the holidays, we got to experience my Mom’s Caesar Salad. It’s just so perfectly good and I ate a lot of it.
I made my Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs yesterday and completely forgot to make a Caesar Salad…. The balls were just that good I guess.
Tonight we do salad! I add fresh sliced mushrooms to mine to give it a bit more substance… Sometimes I add cucumbers too.

Marianne’s Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing
1 egg
Dash or 2 of Worcester Sauce
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic, grated or more
2 Tsp anchovies paste or more
Dash of sugar
Salt & Pepper
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Blend and chill. I actually put it all in a jar and shook the shit out of it. Then passed the jar to Hubby and he shook the shit out of it.

Rub the bowl with garlic.
Rip up some fresh romaine leaves
Add sliced fresh mushrooms
Add your own mixed bread croutons
Add fresh grated parmesan cheese.
Taste it and adjust to your liking
Toss with the dressing when it’s time to serve. It will go slightly soggy if you don’t wait.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! PS, it’s not too strong in flavor, it’s just right, so not to worry you won’t offend your guests with bad breath. Ok well maybe a little. It’s totally worth it! Maybe set up a side dish of Brush Strips! LOL

Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

The holidays are over. Finally!
I mean, I love the festive season, but it always seems to cause such a big blip in life. Everything gets put on hold and you forget how to get back going on as usual. Plus I feel like I need to sleep and sleep and sleep, although I’ve gotten more sleep lately than usual. Maybe that’s the problem…

Ok let’s get back to it shall we? It’s been a tad long since I’ve posted anything! {except for a Merry Christmas wish which attracted a few more followers!}

Hubby picked up the biggest tube of extra lean ground beef from Costco before Christmas and like the sweetheart he is, he divided it up in ziplock bags and froze it. Now I open up the freezer to find all the new bags and 4 from October. That’s a lot of beef! Soooooo, a ground beef, easy peasy, recipe from me to you.

MOZZARELLA STUFFED MEATBALLS
INGREDIENTS
2lbs extra lean GROUBD BEEF
1 cup BREADCRUMBS
3 EGGS
1 Tbsp ITALIAN SEASONING
1 PREMADE HOMEMADE GARLIC BALL {or 4 cloves, minced}
SALT & PEPPER
OLIVE OIL
3 sticks MOZZARELLA STRING CHEESE
PASTA SAUCE
COOKED SPAGHETTI
PARMESAN CHEESE

DIRECTIONS
1. Mix the beef, crumbs, eggs, seasoning, garlic, s&p together. Hands work best!
2. Form into 12 balls, approximately 2″
3. Cut the cheese sticks into 4 pieces each. Should have 12 cubes
4. Press a cheese cube into the middle of each meatball and seal the ball closed again. Work them good so you don’t spring a leak!
5. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and brown the balls on all sides.
6. In a separate pan heat the pasta sauce, then add in the browned meatballs.
7. Simmer the stuffed meatballs in the sauce until they are cooked through. Don’t have the heat too high. It’s hard to stir and you don’t want the sauce to burn.
8. Serve over the spaghetti and top with Parmesan cheese.
