Fun & Tasty Food Tricks
With another busy week (getting our septic tank back in running order as we speak), I thought I would just compile some recipes that have a little twist to them. Some of these I’m sure you have tried and if not, go for it as they’re great!
The first thing I want to share is the baked, hard-boiled eggs. They have been all over the internet lately and I just had to try them…. In a mad search to find my mini cupcake pan, I figured that I must have given them or loaned them to one of my granddaughters. Nope, found them hiding under a large pot where I didn’t look; Kenny is rubbing off on me, you know how men can’t find anything even if it’s right in front of their noses, ha ha! I am not fond of hard boiled eggs but husband is a huge fan and I don’t think I will ever boil them again. Just set your eggs in a mini muffin pan with the large part of the egg in the bottom. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes, remove from oven and immerse into ice water to cool. No cracked eggs, easy as hell to peel and best of all, Kenny said they were wonderful. What a great way to fix a large amount of eggs with summer and BBQ time upon us.
Secondly, the next time you make your favorite scalloped potatoes, try adding a layer or two of cookedspinach in between your potatoes. I swear this will be done every time I make them from now on and one of the great things is that you’re adding another veggie to the mix. On dish dinner…….
Sticking to the spinach thing, with hot weather here what better for dinner than a nice healthy salad. Make a bed of baby spinach. Have desired amount of bacon cooked and crumbled along with chopped tomatoes for topping. Drizzle all with a little of the warm bacon fat and top with some feta cheese. Serve with some fresh dinner rolls and you’re ready to go.
I’m sure a lot of you have tried this but if you haven’t, make your favorite meat ball recipe and stick a small cube of Mozzarella cheese in the center, covering the cheese completely so it does not leak out. Bake as you normally do and have some spaghetti sauce for dipping,,,,,,,,,,,,Oh yeah!
And finally, Kenny’s Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Sandwich that is great for breakfast, lunch and even dinner! Do I need to describe this? Just cook off your burger to desired temperature (medium rare for me and burnt to a crisp for husband), top with cheese and cooked bacon and then slap it on your cooked egg (over easy, poached or even scrambled) and serve in your favorite toasted burger bun, yes, yes and more yeses!
I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day as I really enjoyed husband’s cooking for me all day, what a GUY!
