Years ago when Champ Williams had the food concessions at the Orlando airports (both at Herndon and McCoy/Orlando International) he operated the Skyline Buffet. Actually it was quite nice for a buffet operation and offered real china, crystal, and tablecloths, as well as good food. I recall most of the dishes fondly, in particular the apple muffins and a dressing (stuffing) side dish that was loaded with Brazil nuts. I've contacted The Orlando Sentinel and checked out some of the cook books from the area that had recipes featured from various area restaurants, but have had no luck finding a recipe for that Brazil nut dressing? Do any of you longer-term residents or collectors of local items of interest have a copy of this item? Any help would be appreciated.

Can't help you with the recipe, but, could you help me with the Lobster Newburg? My husband doesn't remember having that dish at Orlando Municipal Airport restaurant. But, I remember having it and it was delicious. Am I correct, or, am I having a Senior Moment???? By the way, if you do get the Brazil nut dressing recipe, I would love to have it, also.

I'm looking for an old picture of the Skyline Restaurant sign - I believe it may have been a neon sign. It was mounted above the Main Entrance to the small terminal, of what was then, the Herndon Airport. Does anyone have such a picture? In this age where Google can track down anything - I cannot BELIEVE how hard it has been to find this picture!!

LOBSTER THERMIDOR SKYLINE RESTAURANT
2 cups milk, heated
1 1/2 lbs langostinos or lobster meat
5 tbsps butter
7 tbsps flour
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced, or stems and pieces, drained
1/4 cup white wine
1/8 tsp prepared mustard
Salt and white pepper to taste
1/4 tsp minced garlic
Parmesan cheese
Chopped fresh parsley to garnish
In a heavy saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour to make a roux. Stir the roux constantly with wire whisk. Simmer 8 to 12 minutes, being very careful that roux does not scorch or turn brown. Add milk a small amount at a time to the roux, mixing constantly. Bring the sauce to just below the boiling point, then add lobster, white wine, mustard, minced garlic, mushrooms and salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer 8 to 20 minutes, being careful that the thermidor does not stick. Place lobster thermidor into individual baking dishes and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in 350 F oven until the thermidor begins to bubble. Garnish with fresh parsley.
Makes 8 side-dish or 4 main-dish servings.
