Chopped Schader Style

Have you ever seen the Food Network show "Chopped"? Josh and I are addicted to it. The basic idea of the show is these top chefs are given a basket of ingredients that they have to use to make an appetizer, and entree, and a dessert. After each round one of the chefs is chopped. Well Saturday, Annaliese and I took a little nap on the couch when I woke up Josh had me come in the kitchen and he had set up a Schader Chopped. He had secret ingredients for me to use and I had to come up with these recipes off the top of my head.

Appetizer Ingredients: Sausage, Crackers, and Shredded Cheese
Entree Ingredients: Chicken Breasts, Corn Flakes, Butter Beans, Bacon
Dessert Ingredients: Oats, Brown Sugar, Mandarin Oranges

What I did?
Appetizer: Sausage Cakes (Sausage, crackers, cheese, egg mixed up and fried into a a little cake, I also made some gravy to dip them in)
Entree: Corn Flake crusted lemon herb Chicken Breast with my own lemon herb honey mustard dipping sauce and herb butter beans with a bacon topping.
Dessert: Mandarin Orange Oatmeal Cake with Mandarin Orange Frosting

Well Josh LOVED it!!!!

You should try it.... it's a lot of fun to come up with something real quick like that and not know ing what your ingredients are going to be.
