What dishes are particularly impressive when made with a Food Processor?

sweet100s | Jan 10, 2007 08:32 AM

OK Chow Mavens,

I've never had a food processor in my life, and I just ordered the 12 cup KFP750 in black. I put one on the "to-get" list over Thanksgiving when slicing and dicing seemed to take forever, but am interested in trying out all the uses of it.

Question is this:

I have company coming this weekend and would love to make something impressive specifically by virtue of the FP !

Maybe a really cool looking veggie dish (or other dish)?

One guest mentioned she's been craving meatloaf... But I'm game for any ideas.

It should arrive on Thursday !!!

To research the purchase, I surfed the following websites:
- Chowhound
- (odd forum software, but a great resource for lots of major appliances- was invaluable for a dishwasher purchase)
- eGullet
- Cooks Illustrated
- Kitchenaid forum

Biggest decision point was between the KFP750 and the KFP760 was that safety mechanism on the ultra wide mouth. I went back and forth but ultimately I think needing to have the pusher in the mouth before it would work would be more of a pain than not. Looked at the 760 in a store to see if I could trick out the safety mechanism into thinking it was engaged when it wasn't. Ultimately decided against trying that because the options I considered didn't seem reliable enough.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom & experience!
