There is nothing more Southern than the combination of comfort food and country music.
If Zac Brown can put a little bit of chicken fried in his music, then you can certainly put a little music in your chicken. If you’ve got a hankerin’ for some soul food to accompany your soulful music, turn on the radio and fire up the stove, because it’s time for some country recipes that will be music to your taste buds!
5. Trisha Yearwood’s Squash Casserole
Many may not know that the Grammy award-winning songstress has quite a flair in the kitchen, but she does! In fact, Trisha Yearwood has published two cookbooks with her mother and sister. This is a squash casserole recipe she shared with the San Diego Union-Tribune in 2010, shortly after the release of her second cookbook.
4. Kimberly Schlapman’s Hot-Dipped Chicken
Little Big Town singer Kimberly Schlapman is such a whiz in the kitchen she is currently hosting her own cooking show on Great American Country TV. On the show, Kimberley picks up recipe ideas on her tour stops with Little Big Town and then combines them with her own down-home recipes. This dish is a great way to spice up fried chicken.
3. Miranda Lambert’s Peanut Butter Pie
She may be Hell on Heels, but the bite-sized spitfire blonde Miranda Lambert also has a sweet side. This peanut butter pie is said to be a favorite of her husband, country singer Blake Shelton. She shared this recipe with Good Housekeeping around Thanksgiving.
2. Martina McBride’s Zucchini Mozzarella Tart
1. Kevin Fowler’s Jalapeño-Wrapped Venison Backstrap
Let’s not forget that men are amazing cooks as well! Texas country singer Kevin Fowler had just enough beer, bait and ammo to bag some good venison, and that’s the main ingredient of the dish he shared on his show, “Kevin Fowler TV”. This twist on the country favorite is wrapped in bacon and has just enough Jalapeño to make it exactly spicy enough.
