Holiday Potluck

For my company’s holiday potluck I decided to do some other folks recipes.

Mini Steak Sandwiches with Mustard-Horseradish Sauce

I made Mini Steak Sandwiches with Mustard-Horseradish Sauce an adaption of a recipe from My Recipes. Beef tenderloin was too pricey for me I bought a 1 lb top sirloin, pan seared it and sliced it thinly to stretch the recipe out make 25 servings. My local Publix also did not sell watercress so I substituted it with arugula.

Grasshopper Pie

The grasshopper pie is the recipe my grandmother uses which came from a newspaper clipping. Written by Nan Wiley.

Crust:

  • 16 chocolate sandwich cookies (e.g. Oreos)
  • 7 tbsp of melted butter

Crush the cookies with a rolling pin and mixed with melted butter and pat the mixture on the bottom and sides of a pie pan. (I didn’t make the crust instead I bought a premade crust at the grocery store)

Filling:

  • 26 regular size marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 1/2 ounces of creme de menthe
  • 1 1/2 ounces of creme de cacao
  • 1/2 pint of whipping cream

Melt the marshmallows in the milk in a double boiler. Add the two liquors. Mix and cool to a syrupy texture.  At the same time whip the cream to the point it has soft peaks. Fold the mint mixture into the whipping cream and pour into the crust. Chill.
