Get Fired Up

By Jamie Deen

So you’re not supposed to like one child better than the other right? That’s what my momma tells me anyway. I can’t help but thinking about all of our books as children. When you’re smack in the middle of working on them, it’s all you can think about and when they finally arrive –well it’s a miracle! I love all The Deen Brothers’ cookbooks, and you can sure tell if you come in my kitchen, ‘cause they are all dogeared and splattered with food stains. A sure sign of love. But this new book…Get Fired Up, the fourth book by my brother Bobby and me along with our friend Melissa Clark, well it’s something special. Get Fired Up has over 100 easy down-home recipes for tailgating, picnics, clambakes, camping trips or just playing catch in the yard! It may sound like just a dude’s cookbook (definitely a great gift for Father’s Day), but my wife, Brooke, and my momma, Paula (y’all might already know her) tell me the girls love it too. I gotta run, because I’m wrappin’ up a bunch of the Ham and Chutney Hungry Brothers Biscuits to take to our Lady and Son’s softball game tonight. Hopefully they’ll help get us a “W”!

Come on out and see Bobby and me if we are coming your way as we cook up a bunch of delicious recipes from Get Fired Up. We always love hearing what you folks have to say.

Ham and Chutney Hungry Brothers Biscuits
serves 8

1 (16.3 ounce) can jumbo refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 pound thinly sliced Virginia ham
1/3 cup prepared mango chutney
Sliced Vidalia or red onions (optional)

Bake the biscuits according to the package directions. Let the biscuits cool slightly, then split them in half horizontally.

Spread the cut side of each biscuit half with the butter and mustard. Sandwich the ham, chutney and onion between the biscuit halves.

I love to watch your shows. I have copied every one of your recipes I can find. My grand-daughter gave me Paula Deen's Kitchen Wisdom and recipe Journal for Christmas. I have added your recipes along with my Mamaw's and Mama's recipes. My kids are now fussing about who gets it one day.I think I will have to get 3 more. Thank you for being the wonderful person you are. I enjoy all of your recipes and the brothers as well. Thanks.

Hello Hello- Couldn't love the women and her "children" anymore than I do. Her shows draw all kinds of crowds and only recently have I started watching to learn some new skills. This coming from a man who has never cooked a meal a day in his life until about a year ago. EVERYTHING I now have under my belt came from Paula, Bobby and Jamie. I was hoping to be able to broaden my menu with the "boys" new book but sadly it's not in the budget. Times are tough for everyone and certain things must fall to the wayside but I wanted to say how proud I was to see a new book and the reviews have been wonderful, not that I am surprised. They are so great to watch and learn from! Truly the two of them gave me the inspiration to want to learn to cook for my wife. She's been doing it for so many years and tells anyone who will listen that she learned everything she's got from the Food Network and Paula. So glad and proud to see a new book out there. That whole family is just amazing. The love they share in the kitchen is something to literally be envious of!! Thanking you for giving us such joy and I hope that sometime this year I might find the extra money to enjoy and spread the word on the most satisfying and easy recipes!! have a great day folks and thanks for letting me share a comment. My best buddies make fun of me for learning how to cook and wanting to learn more but I say " There is no better love and joy and great times than spending it in the kitchen with the ones you love!!!" Best dishes Thomas
