Howling Point’s Greasy Spoon

She’s not trendy, and she doesn’t have a nice production deal with the Food Network.  I don’t think she’s done a TV show in years.  Actually, I think she’s dead.  That doesn’t stop me from giving a shout where one’s due though.  We had a guinea pig friend up to casa for dinner last night, and it gave me the chance to use and tinker with Camille Glenn’s recipe for Chicken Newburg.  It totally rocked with that perfect creamy goodness that lets you know your arteries are going to be tough enough to survive a nuclear blast.  She describes it as “sinfully rich, deliciously good, and very easy” and I usually like anything where you can use the descriptors sinfully, rich and easy together.  I’ve had her Heritage of Southern Cooking book since I was in law school, and she’s never done me wrong.  I did tinker with the recipe a bit though, and thought I’d share.

Camille Glenn’s Chicken Newburg, with Howling Point tinkering.

1.  Melt 2 T. of the butter in a small skillet, and sautee the mushrooms until tender.  Put aside.

2.  Melt the remaining butter in a heavy saucepan.  Add flour and whisk until smooth.  Add the stock and cook until smooth.  Add the cream, chicken and mushrooms. 

3.  Beat the yolks in a small bowl.  Add the yolks and sherry/juice to the chicken.

4.  Simmer (but DO NOT BOIL), season with salt and pepper, and serve over rice.

    …and man was it ever good! Butter, creamy, and the mushrooms gave it a nutty flavor as well. LD is a great chef…

    I don’t have any idea who you are or how you had the wisdom to connect to Camille Glenn. I was learning to cook at the Upperline in New Orleans with good old chef Tom when he “turned me on” to this lady’s work. Since that time I have never been without a bottle of Cognac Vanilla. Emeril did another version of Kentucky Colonels which is as good or better, but true to the spirit of Mrs. Glenn’s. Her pickled oysters and pickled shrimp are landmarks, if not benchmarks. She packed more righteous Southern goodness into her Heritage cookbook than anyone outside the old testament could imagine.

    Thanks for the memories.
