Corn dip, jambalaya, Doritos casserole, Mexican spaghetti, shrimp and grits, and poundcake are among the dozens of recipes in the new Nissan Family Cookbook! The book is a collection of 140 family-favorite recipes and treats shared by employees of Nissan’s U.S. manufacturing team. Did we mention there are recipes in the book for fried pickles, frog legs, and fried Oreos?!
“While our team is best known for assembling some of the highest-quality vehicles for consumers, they are also quite crafty in the kitchen,” said Steve Marsh, senior vice president, manufacturing, supply chain and purchasing, Nissan North America, Inc. “The kitchen is typically the center of holiday activity. It’s where everybody wants to be, and there’s no reason why this can’t continue, even during these unprecedented times.”
Here are some of our favorites from the Nissan Family Cookbook. The cooks have also shared what inspired the recipes.
“This is my wife’s grandmother’s recipe. Grandma Betty is 84 years old and has lots of amazing recipes!”
“This was one of my dad’s favorite recipes. Making it reminds me of him!”
“This recipe was inspired by recipes from several different restaurants.”
“This is a family favorite!”
“My dad, Tim ‘Boss Hogg’ Boisseau, retired from the Smyrna plant a few years ago. His recipe is well-known, and I’m happy to keep the family tradition going by sharing it with our Nissan family and neighbors.”
“My chili recipe was concocted over the years from family recipes and my own changes to those recipes. It has won several different chili cook-offs.”
“I have a son with special needs that loves to help me cook. He loves bacon and chicken so much that we had to put it together.”
“Easy and everyone loves this dish!”
“This is a recipe that has been in the family for many years and has been slightly modified with different ingredients.”
“Born and raised in Rochester, New York, I grew up surrounded by apple orchards, so I ate a lot of apples. This is my favorite way to enjoy them.”
“My granny would make these special butter cakes for me growing up. The whole family loved them. I have taken on the duties of making them for my family since she has passed away. She would be so tickled to know her recipe could become ‘famous’ at Nissan!”
“This recipe is one I developed over several years. It reminds me of my home, New York, and the various places I could go to treat myself. The biggest thing is I can’t eat store-bought cheesecake. The flavor and textures are all wrong. I know you’ll feel the same once you’ve tried this recipe!”
