One of my obsessions is The Salonniere created by Texas native Carla McDonald. Today they shared some favorite New Year's Eve recipes just in time for your last minute trip to the grocery store.
Check out The Salonniere for all the recipes...my two favorites are below:
This fancy popcorn from Outstanding Chef winner Patrick O'Connell is so delicious you'll want to make enough to last beyond the end credits. O'Connell's secret is adding a pinch of sugar to bring out the rich truffle flavor.
1/2 cup popcorn kernels, popped
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons good quality truffle oil
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of sugar
1 small fresh white or black truffle (optional)
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Method:Place the popcorn in a large bowl; add the butter and truffle oil and toss to coat. Add the cheese, parsley, and sugar and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Grate truffle over popcorn just before serving, if desired.
