As I mentioned earlier in the week, the department store Kohl's let me pick out a few items to review from their Food Network line of products. I was like a kid in a virtual candy store trying to choose, but one of the items I finally decided on was this Mini Food Processor (just searched for it online and it might be sold out!) because I didn't own one. This little guy holds 3 cups of food, has chopping, slicing and shredding options, is dishwasher safe and comes in a bunch of colors (which is usually important to us gals). I've only tried the chopping function so far but it worked like a dream!
I used my new food processor to make something I'm going to call Mushroom Crumbs. Like bread crumbs, only these are mushrooms. Do you understand? Great, you're smart. These would be a great gluten-free alternative to bread crumbs, actually! But I sprinkled these on top of a hot dog that was placed in a regular old, gluten-packed bun. It, was, delicious. All I did was throw some sliced mushrooms into my food processor, chopping them finely. Then I heated a thin layer of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, tossed the mushroom crumbs in, and lightly fried them for roughly 7 minutes until they got golden brown...
I removed them from the pan using a slotted spoon, let them rest on some paper towel, and seasoned them with salt and pepper. Done.
p.s. Always soak your hot dogs in beer prior to grilling. ALWAYS.
