6 Notes

Need a simple and delicious appetizer? Try making baked brie with mushrooms, onions, and thyme. I made it for Thanksgiving two years ago, and I got a special request to make it again this year. It’s absolutely delicious and great for any kind of party or gathering! 
Ingredients:
One package of brie cheese (preferably in wooden box)
1/4 cup chopped mushrooms (can use any kind you like)
2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme
1/4 cup of diced onions
1 tbsp of butter
Directions: 
Pre-heat conventional oven to 325 degrees.
With a sharp knife, cut of the rind on the top of the cheese. Place cheese back into the wooden box without the lid and paper. Wrap foil around the bottom while folding the sides leaving the top exposed. 
Melt butter in a medium skillet. Sauté onions, mushrooms, and thyme for 5 minutes or until onions turn brownish.
Pour the mushroom mixture on top of the brie and place the cheese into the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese melts. 
Serve immediately while cheese is warm.
Spread melted cheese on slices of toasted french bread. Enjoy!

5 Notes

Katz’s Delicatessen is a rooted establishment located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan since 1888.  The deli is famous for their smoked meats (pastrami and corned beef sandwiches) and hot dogs. They are also famous for a particular scene in the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally.
You are handed an orange ticket when you walk in.  Don’t lose this ticket as this is how your tab is tallied.  If you lose the ticket, you’ll be charged $50 for a “lost ticket fee”. Hand in your blank ticket even if you don’t eat. 
Tables along the walls are for waiter service; though it is much more fun to stand on line behind one of the counters and watch your carver build your sandwich.  They will usually give you a small sample of the meat.  Also be sure to tip your carver! He might give you a few extra pieces. 
Other favorites are liver and onions and a hot bowl of matzo ball soup. Want breakfast at midnight?  Try their tongue sandwich with fried egg. 
Open until 2:45AM on weekends, we found that it’s a great place to stop by after a night of bar hopping in the LES.
