Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2002

2 (10-ounce) packages fresh spinach, well rinsed and stems trimmed
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup chopped yellow onions
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup 1/2-inch cubes rindless Brie
1 cup grated Monterey Jack
1 (6 1/2-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
4 strips bacon, fried crisp, drained and chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
Assorted chips for dipping (pita chips, tortilla chips, bagel chips)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch round chafing dish and set aside.

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the spinach in batches and cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and refresh under cold running water. Squeeze to remove all excess water and chop. Set aside. In a medium pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, to make a light roux, about 2 minutes. Add the milk and cream in a steady stream, and cook, stirring constantly, until thick and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cooked spinach and lemon juice, and stir to incorporate. Add the cubed and grated cheeses, artichoke hearts, and bacon, and stir well. Remove from the heat and pour into the prepared dish. Top with the Parmesan and bake until bubbly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot with chips.

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons Creole mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Angels and Devils on Horseback, Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2002

1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
12 medium to small oysters, shucked and drained
12 scallops, side muscle removed
12 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise

Preheat the broiler.

In a shallow bowl, combine the wine, garlic, and pepper sauce. Add the oysters and scallops and toss to coat. Let marinate for 10 minutes. Place the bacon flat on a work surface and scrape with the back of a knife to prevent from shrinking while cooking. Place 1 oyster or scallop on each piece of bacon and roll up to enclose. Secure with a toothpick and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Place on the top rack of the oven and broil, until the bacon is crisp and the edges of the oysters have curled, turning once to cook both sides evenly.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Spinach and Feta Puff Pastry Bites, Recipe courtesy Dave Lieberman

1 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach
1/4-pound firm feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
2 cloves garlic, pressed
About 20 grinds black pepper
Small dash nutmeg
Flour, for dusting
1 (10 by 9.5-inch) piece of packaged puff pastry

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Thaw frozen spinach in microwave according to package directions or by running under warm water. Drain spinach, squeezing the excess liquid from it. In a bowl, mix the spinach, feta, garlic, pepper, and nutmeg together.

Flour a clean, dry countertop or other flat working surface. Lay out the puff pasty on the floured surface. Flour the top of the dough. Roll out the puff pastry until it is half as thick (about 1/8-inch) and about 24 by 12 inches. Trim edges to size if necessary. Cut into 3-inch strips crosswise and lengthwise, making 32 (3-inch) squares. Make sure the squares are well floured then stack them in a little pile.

Fill a little dish with some room temperature water. Imagine each square you work with is separated in half by a diagonal. Place a couple teaspoons of filling in the top half. Dip a finger into the water and moisten the edges of the top half with water. Fold the bottom half to meet the edges of the top half. Use a fork to seal the edges.

Place finished pockets on a nonstick baking sheet and bake about 15 minutes until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.
