1 cup peeled, cubed kiwi
1 cup peeled, cubed figs
1 cup halved grapes
1 cup halved strawberries
1 cup raspberries
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Champagne
Heat broiler to its highest setting.
Divide the cut fruits into 4 soup plates, arranging them decoratively.
Make sauce by combining egg yolks and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Whisk briskly until the yolks begin to turn a light lemony color.
Add the Champagne a little bit at a time, whisking constantly until well blended.
Place the mixing bowl in a pot or pan and pour about 1\” of water around it.
Bring the water to a simmer and continue to whisk vigorously until the mixture becomes light and foamy.
Once the mixture starts to thicken, remove the bowl from the heat. Do not overcook.
Continue to whisk for 10 seconds.
Pour equal amounts of sauce over each fruit salad.
Place the plates under the broiler about 3 inches from the source of heat and allow them to cook just until they are lightly browned on the surface, rotating as needed.
Serve immediately with remaining Champagne to accompany.
6 Oz Bottle Hot Sauce (I used Louisiana)
1 Tbsp. Onion Powder
8 Oz Bottle Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing
16 Oz – Grilled Chicken (I used the Fajita Chicken at Wal-Mart)
½ Cup Cheddar Cheese
2 8oz Blocks Cream Cheese
Preheat oven to 350.
Empty bottle of Hot Sause into a medium sauce pan with the onion powder, add heat till it begins to bubble.
As the sauce heats, chop the chicken, and lightly mince some of it. Add it to the Hot Sauce.
Once the sauce begins to bubble a second time, add the full bottle of ranch.
Once the pot begins to boil again, slowly add the cream cheese, mixing it thoroughly to ensure complete melting, and proper mixing.
Once all of the cream cheese is mixed, add the shredded cheddar cheese, mixing thoroughly.
Transfer mixture from the pot, to a baking bowl, add a layer of your favorite cheese to the top and heat in oven for 15 – 20 minutes.
