I've had these for a while but never thought about posting. Maybe it's because I'm starving now. They're recipes derived from American restaurants (fast food) and having tried a few, they're pretty good. With some, you have to substitute certain ingredients for others but they work...

Bennigan's Hot Bacon Dressing

Serving Size : 1    Preparation Time :0:00

Amount Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
   2      ounces        Bacon grease
     1/4 pound        Red onion -- dice fine
   2      cups          Water
     1/2 cup           Honey
     1/2 cup           Red wine vinegar
   2      tablespoons   Dijon mustard
   1 1/2 tablespoons   Cornstarch
   1      tablespoon    Tabasco

Place the bacon grease in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until the onions start to blacken. While the onions are carmelizing, in a mixing bowl place the water, honey and red wine vinegar. Using a wire whisk, mix the ingredients well. Add the cornstarch and whisk well. After the onions have carmelized, add the Dijon mustard to the onions and stir together with a rubber spatula. Add the water, vinegar, pepper (sic.) honey and cornstarch to the mustard and onions and mix. Continue stirring until mix thickens and
comes to a boil. Remove from heat and store in refigerator until needed. Note: To reheat use a double boiler. I put the tabasco on the ingredient list if you like it. In different parts of the country Bennigan's omits this ingredient.

Chili'sŪ Southwestern Vegetable Soup

If you like a soup that's packed with veggies,
that's low in fat, and has some of that Southwestern
zing to it, this is the one for you. Just toss all the
ingredients in a pot and simmer. Garnish with some
shredded cheese and crumbled tortillas, and prepare to
take the chill off.

6 cups chicken stock
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 cup water
1 cup canned dark red kidney beans, with liquid
1 cup sweetcorn (creamed corn is lovely)
1 cup frozen cut green beans
diced green chilies to taste
1/2 cup diced Spanish onion
1/2 cup tomato sauce
6 corn tortillas, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
dash garlic powder

Garnish
1 cup grated cheddar/jack cheese blend
1 cup crumbled corn tortilla chips

1. Combine all the soup ingredients in a large saucepan or soup pot over high heat. Be sure to mince the corn tortillas into small pieces with a sharp knife before adding them to the soup.
2. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the soup has thickened and tortilla pieces have mostly dissolved.
3. To serve soup ladle 1 1/2 cups into a bowl. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the grated cheddar/jack cheese blend over the top of the soup, and then a heaping tablespoon of crumbled corn tortilla chips over the cheese.
Makes 6 servings.

My own sweetcorn fritters:

One can of creamed corn
cornflour
2-3 chopped spring onions
1 tablespoon of onion powder
water

Method:

Combine the corn, spring onions and onion powder in a good sized bowl then generously pour over the cornflour (don't be stingy with it). Add the water bit by bit until the mixture forms a gloopy batter (it can't be runny). Shallow-fry tablespoonfulls of the mixture in a frying pan until crispy, turning regularly to ensure even cooking. Then serve 'em up.

The black pepper one is also brilliant. Not keen on the original stuff.
