One of the major stumbling blocks for many Sudden Bachelors is food (lack of, preparation, etc). While we’ve delivered a few somewhat edible recipes, most of you will default back to pizza. So SBs, in an effort to help bring some new flavor to your lives, we are very excited to have our friend Celebrity Chef Sara Moulton check in and hand pick one of her recipes from her new book “Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners” (Simon and Schuster, 2010) specifically for you Sudden Bachelors. If you want more Sara, be sure to check her out on The Cooking Channel and Good Morning America. Now – over to Chef Sara Moulton:
“Fried” Catfish BLTs
This is a good recipe for a Sudden Bachelor because:
A. It is not something alien – meaning it is simply a take on a BLT and
B. It is a perfect recipe for a novice and
C. It is healthy and filling, basically enough for dinner with just a simple side dish such as cole slaw
The Husband tends to scorn the BLT as an “air sandwich.” Of course it’s delicious – nobody ever goes far wrong as long as bacon’s involved – but it’s hardly what you’d call filling. That’s why I’ve bulked up the traditional BLT with some “fried” fish. (Actually, the fish is breaded and sautéed, which gives it that fried crunch without all the oil.) I’ve also tricked up the standard-issue mayo with some fresh basil and a little lemon zest. The result is a sandwich buff enough to kick sand in the face of the skinny little BLT. Indeed, it is a sandwich worthy of dinner entrée status.
