PHOTO – DRUMSTICK CROWN ROAST – SPRING DRUMSTICK CROWN ROAST ADDS WHIMSY TO EASTER FEAST
The symbols of Easter are happy ones, full of the joy of the day$spring flowers and spring greens, new clothes, cuddly animals and their chocolate look-alikes, jelly beans, fancy breads and cakes, colored eggs and Easter egg hunts. Catching the spirit of the day, Perdue Farms’ home economists developed a playful main course to “crown” the Easter meal. It is a roast of drumsticks fashioned into an edible crown by baking them upright around a coffee can. When baking is complete, a corn bread stuffing that you make replaces the can. The technique is not difficult and the can actually helps brown the outside of the chicken.
Pilaf-Stuffed Crown Roast With Herb Gravy could be the centerpiece to a Greek feast, including a classic Greek soup, artichoke casserole, and salad with feta cheese. Traditional touches such as a garnish of red-dyed hard-cooked eggs and luscious rich baklava from the bakery will add authenticity to the celebration. For an American-style meal, serve Cornbread-Stuffed Crown Roast of Drumsticks with Madeira Sauce. Either way, Happy Easter!
