Looky, Looky; look who I found! After taking way too much time off, due to a mental breakdown in the kitchen, ha ha, I figured I better get back to work. But seriously, I really have not felt like being in the kitchen that much let alone coming up with new things to try. It’s also due to the fact that Husband and I have shaved back on how much we eat as the weight has piled on a little much! During my absence I did manage to do a couple of things and this meatloaf was one; I also have a couple of others simple recipes to get out in the near future and a few more ideas in mind. The holidays also had a big factor in posting as we have slowed down in getting all the decorations up, down and the house back to normal until next year (OLD AGE stinks!)…. This recipe was not originally meant to be a breakfast food but after making it for supper, all Kenny and I could think of was how it would taste as a compliment to our eggs in the morning and that’s how we finished the rest of it off. We sliced it and then tried to brown it, only problem we had was it kind of fell apart in the frying pan but it sure didn’t take away from the flavor, no sireeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Breakfast Meatloaf
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 medium size baking potatoes or enough to make one pound
  • ½ cup shopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup dried bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Shred potatoes on a medium size grater, blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  2. Mix together with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Shape mixture into loaf and place in a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until nicely browned.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Simplicity at one of its best for sure, especially for breakfast! I mean you got your meat and potatoes all in one dish, just add eggs and toast!!

I’d also like to share that our daughter just graduated form WHU (Waffle House University) and is now a manager who will be running her own store starting this week! So proud of her!

Bacon & Onion Tricks

Berry topping and rain 013

Today I’m just going to share a couple of things that we have tried lately and it’s just too damn hot to go outside to do anything else; so I’m just sitting here goofin’ off and hoping that Bambi might come sneaking around the corner and say Hi as I sit here!

Berry topping and rain 002

Picked another pound of blueberries this morning before the heat took it’s toll and I still have more to pick this afternoon, hopefully before we get the much needed rain that is predicted. My daughter’s cheesecake with the blueberry topping that I just posted was a big hit last night at her church supper with the ladies as was her zucchini lasagna that I taught her to make. She’s a lot like me when it comes to cooking, always game to try new ideas. Speaking of which….

A couple of weeks ago on Fox News, I saw a chef from one of the New York City restaurants make these onions on the grill and all the newscasters went bonkers for them. Okay, now it’s bacon folks, do I have your attention now? He took onion rings, sprinkled them with some seasoning and then wrapped them in bacon strips, no joke! I was hooked before I even tasted one. So one night not too long after that, we were doing kebobs on the grill and I decided it was time. I cut the rings in about 1/4 inch slices, omitted the seasoning for the first try, and went on to wrapping them in the bacon securing them with a toothpick. Let me say something here, if you are short on patience, DO NOT ATTEMPT! Wow, wrapping them was surely a chore and I was glad to be doing only a few to try. When you’re done preparing them, grill them over medium heat until the bacon is nice and crisp, flipping them a couple of times as they cook. Next time I think I will use a thicker bacon and maybe it will go a little easier! But all in all, we were in hog heaven (love puns) and will make them again. Maybe I’ll do it when the kids come over and when they ask what they can do to help, I’ll pass the buck and let them figure it out, ha  ha  ha, I’m such a mean grandma!

Next up was some burgers for dinner and these can also be done on the grill, but I cooked them inside that night to spare Husband from the heat that evening as it was brutal. I cut a piece of sweet onion to the thickness of my burger and then filled it with my burger meat, pressing it out to fit snugly inside it’s onion nest. I cook a burger for me on the medium-rare side and before you say anything about that, don’t forget that I only use our own fresh ground meat and after too many years to mention, I have yet to get sick on under-cooked burgers! This one was easy to do and I don’t think I’ll ever make a burger without doing this again. They were fabulous! Just remember to use an onion ring large enough for the size patties you’re making and cut it to the thickness of the your burger too………….

Hope you enjoy a couple of tips for your grilling pleasure and have a nice weekend! Don’t forget to like us on Facebook  and Twitter and join our Saturday news letter..up there..at the top.. to keep up with the latest recipes!
