Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!

  • Got a few extra minutes? Why not make your own fried onions! To do so, simply cut thin slices of onion, place them in a plastic storage bag with flour, and shake, shake, shake, until they are well coated. Then fry them in a deep skillet in about an inch or so of vegetable oil until crispy. Season with some salt and you’ll have the best fried onions ever.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
