Cartofi evantai umpluti cu prosciuto si branza / Croque Monsieur Hasselback Potatoes



Ingrediente / ingredients:

 - 4 cartofi mari - 4 large potatoes
 - prosciutto   - prosciutto
 - cascaval   - cheese
 - mozzarella  - Mozzarella
 - 2 cani de sos bechamel - 2 cups of bechamel sauce

Pentru inceput feliem cartofii. Punem cartoful intre 2 linguri de lemn si il feliem dar nu pana jos.

Begin by slicing parallel lines down the length of each potato, using two wooden spoons as guides to prevent the knife splitting your tater in half.


Ii punem intr-un vas ii ungem cu ulei de masline si ii presaram cu sare. II tinem la cuptor aproximativ o ora.

Rub each one with oil and sprinkle with salt, then bake for at least one hour.



Dupa ce s-au copt, ii umplem cu cascaval si prosciutto. Pe unul l-am umplut cu branza de oi. Turnam sosul bechamel si ii mai bagam la cuptor pentru 20 de minute. Cu 10 minute inainte de a scoate tava punem mozzarella.

After they are baked, fill them with cheese and prosciutto. I filled one with sheep cheese. We pour the bechamel sauce and put them in the oven for 20 minutes. With 10 minutes before we remove the tray we put the mozzarella.


Lasam sa se racoreasca putin.

Let it cool a little.



Bon appetit!

Pui pe sticla in sos de bere / Roasted Chicken On a Can / Chicken On a Bottle Recipe



Ingrediente / ingredients:

- un pui - a chicken
- 1000 ml bere - 1000 ml beer
- 100 ml ulei de masline - 100 ml of olive oil
- o lingura de cimbru - a tablespoon thyme
- 5-6 catei de usturoi - 5-6 cloves of garlic
- o lingurita de boia dulce - a teaspoon of paprika
- 1/2 lingurita de fulgi de chili - 1/2 teaspoon of chili flakes
- sare si piper dupa gust  - salt and pepper to taste
- o lingura de unt - a tablespoon of butter

Facem un amestec din ulei, cimbru, boia, fulgi de chili , sare si piper.

We make a mixture of oil, thyme, paprika, chili flakes, salt and pepper.


Cu acest amestec ungem puiul.

Brush the chicken with this mixture.


In suportul in care va sta puiul ( sticla, borcanul, cana) punem bere si  2-3 catei de usturoi striviti.

In the stand where the chicken will sit (glass, jar, mug) put beer and 2-3 crushed cloves of garlic .


In tava punem restul de bere, o cescuta de apa , usturoiul strivit si restul compozitiei de ulei de masline. Lasam la cuptor aproximativ 90 minute, in functie de marimea puiului. Din cand in cand mai ungem puiul cu sosul format.

Put in the tray the rest of the beer, a cup of water, the crushed garlic and the rest of the olive oil mixture. Put in the oven for about 90 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken. From time to time we grease the chicken with the formed sauce.


Dupa ce scoatem puiul, luam sosul ramas, si berea din sticla , punem toata compozitia intr-o craticioara, adaugam untul si lasa la foc mic pana se ingroasa.

After we remove the chicken, we take the remaining sauce, and the beer from the glass, put the whole composition in a saucepan, add the butter and let it on the low heat until it thickens.


Se serveste fierbinte cu garnitura preferata  - noi am vrut cartofi prajiti.

Serve hot with the favorite garnish - we wanted french fries.
