Game Day Recipe Hacks
1) Onion Hacks: How to Chop Onions Without Shedding a Tear.
Here are my top 3 Onion Hacks for keeping the tears away in the kitchen.
1. Put your onion in the freezer for 10 minutes before you chop it.
2. Cut your onions next to hot running water.
The steam will help to disperse the vapors.
3. Dice your onion by cutting vertically and then horizontally.
Slice your onion vertically without going all the way to the bottom. Then make cuts horizontally to create squares. when you turn the onion on its size and cut it in slices it will already be diced up.
2) Chicken Hacks: How to Easily Shred Chicken in a Hurry.
I love cooking with baked chicken, but I hate getting my quisinart dirty just to chop chicken. By shredding this as soon as it comes out of the oven I can save time and dishes.
1. Use one fork to hold the chicken still, and then use a second fork to shred the chicken by pulling it apart.
2. Sprinkle salt and pepper on your frozen chicken tenders before you put them in the oven.
3) Crockpot Hacks: How to save time on Game Day by Meal Prepping.
If you are in a hurry on game day, think about opening your cans ahead of time and putting them in a food saver bag or storage bag and put it in the freezer or fridge until it’s time to dump in your crockpot.
Cook your onions and celery ahead of time and store them in a food saver bag or plastic bag in the fridge until you are ready to use them.
I even put my spices in a small bag so that they were already measured and ready to throw in the crockpot.
All of these Game Day Recipe Hacks helped me to prepare my Black Bean Soup Recipe ahead of time. All I had to do was throw all of the ingredients in the crockpot and let it cook together!
