paddy day shot 002

Come on over and join us!

For the first time in many moons, Kenny and I will not be home tomorrow to have our corned beef dinner due  to appointments with the doc, so we will be celebrating on Friday in lieu of the holiday itself. Now don’t get me wrong, there will still be a couple of shots of some kind of Irish whiskey and of course a round of cold brewskies when we get home tomorrow! But I did want to wish all of our Irish friends out there a happy St. Patty’s Day and leave you with a couple of our favorites from the past. This year I may try a different way of cooking of our beef and I do have a new sauce I want to try for those delicious sandwiches that will be coming this weekend, my mouth is watering as I type……..

Some of our recipes from the vault are:
Corned Beef Coney Style (sorry the picture is missing which we have had happen in several of our posts)
Corned Beef Burgers
Quick Corned Beef Chowder
Hawaiian Corned Beef
Corned Beef And Granny Smith Apples
Split Pea And Corned Beef Stew
But one of our favorites for the day after is my sister’s, Pat’s Open Faced Irish Sandwich. It is just sooo yummy!!!!

I will leave you with those, have a great day and may the luck of the Irish be with you…………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!

Pigs In A Bacon Burger Blanket

Oh! Don't count the calories....Just enjoy!

Oh! Don’t count the calories….Just enjoy!

Got this idea from a restaurant that was cooking for Fox News one weekend awhile back and thought it would be a great idea for Super Bowl Sunday! They wrap a whole dog for their restaurant but I made them as a finger food….  They didn’t say what ingredients were used, just that it was a hot dog stuffed in burger meat and then wrapped in bacon. I thought to myself, okay, you put relish and mustard on top of the dogs and onion and dill pickle on top of your burger so why not put those ingredients into the burger meat?

For this recipe I will only use one bun size hot dog which will make 8 nice size balls and you can multiply that for desired amount you would like to make……….

Pigs In A Bacon Burger Blanket
  • 1 bun size hot dog, cut into 8 pieces
  • ¼ lb lean ground beef
  • 8 strips of bacon cut in half
  • 3 tbsp chopped onion, I used sweet
  • 2 large tbsp dill relish, you can also use sweet
  • 2 tbsp horseradish mustard
  1. Combine the burger meat with the onion, relish and mustard, mix well.
  2. Take a scoop of meat about the size of a rounded tablespoon and place 1 piece of the hot dog in center, surrounding the hot dog completely with the burger.
  3. Wrap one piece of bacon around one side and then another piece around the opposite side.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven on a shallow baking sheet, do not use a cookie sheet as the grease will run off into your oven.
  5. Cook until bacon is done, turning occasionally for about 20 minutes.

It’s Saturday and I’m out of here until next week when husband and daughter will be taking the spotlight in the kitchen, OH God help us all…….. Have a great weekend and enjoy the big game tomorrow, til then!
