Polk Salad Annie Days

In honor of the King of Rock and Roll, who passed away Aug. 17, 1977, and who absolutely loved food, I am starting this week to list recipes here on Tuesdays. I hope they will be helpful to you. If you have any you’d like to share, please do so!

The Spice of Life

My husband cooked an amazing brisket this past weekend. What made this slab of meat so different than any other we’ve had before? I’m convinced it was the spices he used. Recently my children attended a cooking class. One of the many things they made was ‘Baby Bam’ courtesy of Emeril Lagasse. So, BAM! Here it is:

3 Tbsp. paprika
2Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. dried parsley
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
1tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
½ tsp. celery salt

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir well. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Sprinkle this over a brisket and cook it slow at 325 degrees. Add a salad and some baked beans a few years of corn and BAM! You’ve got a great meal.

Also, if you are on Facebook, come to my fan page and join in the fun. I’m giving prizes away this week in honor of Elvis.
