We have a winner! Wolf guessed scones, I was afraid the currant would give it away.

Note the rather large proportion of flour to sugar. And yes soda bread would call for more soda.

I knew it was scones, too, but came in late (better than not coming at all, eh?)

Okay, I'm filing that one away next to "The difference between soup and gravy is mostly how much you reduce it." Interesting, and it increases my understanding.

This will doubtless go astray, but it looks to me like it would make cookies:

1/4# sugar
1/4# butter
2 C flour
4 eggs
1C old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C raisins ... the slow oven says they get cooked gently.

Nice idea, I may try it, but I think it would be a bit dry even for cookies.
You've got three cups of dry in total, and a cup of eggs would make it a pretty chewy cookie.

I'll be back later, I've got a meeting

sounds too simple. not edible. equal parts cocoa powder and flour? Gah. Where's the sugar? I like my brownies sweet-er than that. And what would that yield? About a cup and a half of brownie mix? What do you make it in, a single serving rammekin?

Southern-Fried Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper-and-Vidalia Onion Gravy
Grand-Prize Winner: Susan Rotter, Nolensville, TN

INGREDIENTS
4 ounces PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup dry chicken-flavored stuffing mix
½ cup (2 ounces) finely shredded Romano cheese
½ cup chopped Vidalia onion
¼ cup minced fresh basil
4 large boned chicken breast halves with skin
4 OSCAR MAYER Ready to Serve Bacon slices
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 cup BISQUICK Original All-Purpose Baking Mix

Stir together first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Place chicken, skin side down, between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to ¼-inch thickness, using a mallet or rolling pin.

Spread one-fourth of cream cheese mixture on skinless side of each chicken breast half; top with 1 piece of bacon. Roll up chicken, jellyroll fashion, lifting skin and tucking roll under skin.

Whisk together egg and milk in a bowl. Combine baking mix, Creole seasoning, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dip chicken rolls in egg mixture; dredge in baking mix mixture.

Pour oil to depth of 2 inches in a large skillet; heat to 350°. Fry chicken rolls, in batches, 10 to 12 minutes or until dark brown and done, turning chicken rolls often. Drain on wire rack over paper towels.

Spoon ¼ cup Roasted Red Pepper-and-Vidalia Onion Gravy on each of 4 individual serving plates; top with 1 chicken roll. Drizzle with additional gravy.

Dice 1 onion half; set aside. Cut remaining onion half into slices. Place onion slices and bell pepper, cut sides down, on a baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil; drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt.

Broil onion slices and bell pepper halves 5 inches from heat about 10 minutes or until bell pepper looks blistered. Place bell pepper halves in a freezer bag; seal and let stand 10 minutes to loosen skin. Peel bell pepper halves; finely chop 1 bell pepper half. Reserve and set aside chopped bell pepper and remaining pepper half. Finely chop roasted onion slices, and set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add reserved diced onion, and sauté 10 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly, until flour mixture is caramel-colored (about 5 minutes). Stir in chicken broth and Creole seasoning. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.

Process gravy mixture and reserved bell pepper half in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Combine gravy mixture, chopped roasted onion, reserved finely chopped bell pepper, basil, and black pepper.

Yield: Makes 3 cups
Prep: 20 min., Broil: 10 min., Cook: 25 min., Stand: 10 min.

hehehe

it's really not as bad as you're imagining, but you need to like the taste of old bay.

1 shredded zucchini - smallish
1 egg
salt, pepper, old bay to taste
bread crumbs

Mash it all together - like you're making salmon or crab cakes.

Brush with melted butter, broil for 4 minutes.
