The Best Way to Make Drumsticks

chicken drumsticks

Last Friday, our family was invited to a picnic table party.  Everyone brings a dish to share. Lots of bodies and hungry mouths to feed. I was up for the challenge. Lots of mouths means I'm going to need lots of space to cook.  First thought was how many chicken drumsticks can I fit on the Baking Steel Griddle?  I stopped at Whole Foods and bought 21 chicken legs for a grand total of $18.27.  That is a deal.

One thing I'm really loving about the Griddle is the balanced heat and the spacial cooking surface.  With this much space, I can literally load on almost 20 drumsticks per batch.  This thing is a beast.  My favorite way to eat chicken is to add salt, pepper, a little olive oil and heat. Cooked perfectly, after one of these drumsticks you will want another and then another.  I couldn't stop eating them!  Luckily I don't live too far from the market and the size of the Griddle allowed me to whip up another batch in no time!

3. Place drumsticks on Griddle and cook for 5 minutes, turn and repeat.  Continue cooking for approximately 20 minutes or until tender.

Some may ask why get frozen tuna? The process that happens to 80% of the tuna made for high end sushi establishments and other fine restaurants is right after catching the fish, blasting it at -60 degrees celsius.

Sliders, because everyone loves 'em


Sliders have been a trend for quite a while now, but for me, they are a great way to sample different flavors. I have never been much of a large meal eater, more of a snacker and sliders fit right in there with my ways. Most sliders, whether it be a beef patty, crab cake or portobello mushroom, usually weigh in around 2 oz. Now that's a diet meal right there!

These little guys showed up first and foremost in a big way at White Castle back when they were only 5 cents a pop. Called "sliders" for a cheeseburger that "slid into the bun".

You can really do just about anything, hot or cold, in "slider" form. Dinner rolls make great size buns and now, they even carry "slider" buns because the size has become so popular. We decided to make our own, using Four Star Farms Bolted Glenn Bread Flour, with Jim Lahey's no knead recipe, and they were fantastic.

The Baking Steel Griddle does a fantastic job in providing a massive surface area on which you can cook plenty of burgers, with extra room to toast buns (because who wouldn't?) and assemble, all on a hot surface for an awesome snack or meal. We used toppings leftover from our pizza class to put our burgers together - carmelized onions, muenster cheese & baby bellas, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella & basil, and baby fontina with arugula.  Until you can get your hands on our Griddle (June 2nd pre-orders), the Original Baking Steel works perfectly for these babies, especially out on the grill.

Lost Bread

Lost Bread

What is French Toast? Well for most, French Toast is a battered bread product served with Maple Syrup and some compote on the side. In France, they call it Pain Perdu, or lost bread, where they use stale or unused ends of loaves to soak and pan fry in butter.
