Supermarket Food Treasures

These foods may seem like one-trick ponies. But take a closer look and you'll find they have plenty of hidden talents.

ROOT BEER
Even if a float isn't in your immediate future, pick up this sweet-spicy soda. Simmer it until syrupy, then drizzle over hot french toast. Or have it for dinner -- it's perfect for basting baked ham.

 

COCKTAIL SAUCE
This tangy concoction rubs shrimp in all the right ways. We also love it when prawns aren't in our dinner plans. Add olive oil and garlic and you've got a new bruschetta topping. Or spread it on a plump frankfurter.

 

HONEYDEW MELON
Sure, extra-sweet honeydew can chill out with the best of 'em in a (yawn) fruit salad. The cooler option: Purée a cupful and whisk in oil and vinegar for a refreshing salad dressing.

 

FROZEN SHREDDED HASH BROWNS
We think it's an injustice that these bad boys only spend quality time with eggs. Stir the convenient veggies into your favorite soup. Or use them to coat chicken cutlets.

CIDER
Nothing signals autumn like this juice. But we've got news for you: It ain't just for sipping! Use it in place of broth to add zest and depth to gravy.
