Cheesey Bacon Potato Slices Update

First of all, let me apologize to anyone who couldn’t access our site yesterday. Apparently there was a glitch with our server but the problem has now been solved! I wanted to get this in yesterday but as I explained, we were down for most of the day. I then thought about getting our seeds started for our fall garden and again I was foiled as it was sooooo hot, you couldn’t even breathe outside. With our site back on track today, I thought I would do my seeding thing in the morning and get this out this afternoon however, Mother Nature decided otherwise as we had heavy storms all morning and another 6 inches of rain has graced our property, YUK!

Go ahead...Try one!

Go ahead…Try one! They would really be good for game day as well!

So with all that behind us, let me continue…. I talked earlier this week about doing potato recipes to herald in Potato Month and this week I made our Philly Meatloaf and with having left-overs the next evening decided to take our Cheesy Bacon Potato Slices and doctor them up to compliment the meatloaf with the following recipe: Your gonna love it!

Cheesey Bacon Potato Slices Update
  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • Melted butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • ½ medium bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups Asiago cheese, grated
  • 8 strips of bacon
  1. Scrub potatoes and cut into ½ inch slices.
  2. Dip potatoes into melted butter and place on a cookie sheet; bake for 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven, turning after 15 minutes.
  3. While potatoes are baking, cook bacon until crisp and drain on paper towels.
  4. Pour off the bacon drippings, leaving a light coat in frying pan and saute the onions and peppers until softened.
  5. When potatoes are done cooking, top with the grated cheese, onions, peppers and bacon that has been crumbled.
  6. Return potatoes to oven to melt cheese and serve.


And they went so well with the meatloaf!

Creamy Vanilla And Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

As some of you know, a couple of weeks ago I picked up an older yogurt maker and I have to say that I am not a big fan of just plain yogurt! I ended up with it sitting in my frig trying to figure out what to do with the rest of it after I ran out of strawberries to top it off. Husband doesn’t care for yogurt at all but I think now I might be able to remedy that situation. My Country Living Magazine had all kinds of different ways to spruce up plain frozen yogurt and after making my version, I can’t wait to experiment with more ways to make this treat as husband even thought it was pretty good and very tasty. It still had a little of the sourness that good yogurt has, but now I know exactly what is in it versus the store bought stuff! Of course you will need some kind of ice cream maker for the freezing part to make it easy on yourself or you can do it the old fashion way by freezing it and after a little while in the freezer, take it out, stir and refreeze.

This is really good yogurt!

This is really good yogurt!

Creamy Vanilla And Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
  • 1-1/2 cups store bought plain Greek yogurt or homemade
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 oz fresh honey
  • ¾ tsp French vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teas kosher salt
  • Heaping cup of chopped fresh strawberries
  • ⅛ cup of sugar
  1. Whisk together the yogurt with the next 5 ingredients, cover and chill until very cold, two hours or more.
  2. Place chopped berries in a saucepan with the ⅛ cup of sugar over medium-high heat and cook until fruit has softened, about 6-8 minutes; cool completely.
  3. Pour yogurt mixture into your electric ice cream maker bowl and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions, adding strawberries during the last few minutes of freezing time or fold into frozen mixture before placing in your freezer.
  4. Wait at least 2 hours before eating, if you can wait that long!


Hope you enjoy this wonderful, healthy treat! Have a great week end! Let me know if you have a favorite yogurt recipe!
