3 Recipes To Warm You Up This Winter
The winter months can be cold and lonely, but it’s easy to warm up with the right ingredients in your kitchen, and friends won’t be shy about braving the snow if you’re cooking something that tastes like home.
Lady Luck® Casino Caruthersville wants to help bring you some tips for passing the time until the warm weather makes its triumphant return, and we think that a few recipes might be just the thing. Check out these three delicious ideas that are easy enough for even novice chefs to recreate.
1. Chicken Cordon Bleu
To make traditional cordon bleu, the chef should layer prosciutto (or any other ham) and cheese in between thin slices of chicken or veal before breading and sautéing the entire stack. This quick, easy version from Eating Well keeps the flavors the same, but skips the fussy layering and breading steps. It’s easy, too – This recipe carries less than 250 calories per serving!
2. French Onion Soup
Layered with brandy, dry sherry and sweet onions, Ina Garten’s soup staple is best soaked up with crusty bread. The Food Network states that French Onion Soup only requires 10 minutes of prep before an hour of cooking. How’s that for easy?!
3. Classic Winter Fruitcake
This festive cake is delicious, the icing is easy to use, the finished product looks aesthetically pleasing, and a fruitcake always makes for a lighter end to any meal; it’s the perfect centerpiece for a winter dessert. BBC Good Food recommends avoiding moving the icing around more than five minutes after frosting the cake, even though it’s more forgiving than other icings in the event of a mistake.
If you’re trapped inside this winter, these recipes are so simply, and the results are so delicious, that they almost seem like a no-brainer. If the roads are clear, though, skip all the cooking and cleaning and head to Lady Luck® Casino Caruthersville, where you can dine on a home-style meal at Otis & Henry’s® or O&H Express®!
Otis & Henry’s® Bar & Grill serves the best in comfort food while you enjoy a casual setting featuring a fabulous view overlooking the Mississippi River. If you don’t want a meal to get in the way of your action on the floor, you can stop at O&H Express® for a quick, delicious meal! No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll never have to worry about leaving these comfortable confines to enjoy it.
