Potato And Green Bean Chowder

I ate the whole thing!!!

  I ate the whole thing!

Just a very simple recipe today to share with you with the cooler and in some cases, colder weather moving in to most of us. We here in Florida, have had a beautiful week of mornings near 50 degrees and days in the 70’s! Thursday night, we were lucky enough to have some of our kids over to share a bonfire with us and granddaughter even brought all the ingredients to make Smores!

You do remember Smore's...Don't you?

You do remember Smores…Don’t you?

It was the first time we got to see daughter since her visit to Washington D.C. and along with a beautiful shot glass with a picture of the original Constitution of the United States printed on it to go along with our large collection of bar glasses, she also brought home a cookbook by the Army Air Operations Group called the Responders’ Recipes. Of course I had to sit right down and read it to see what I might be able to conjure up in my kitchen. Without much desire to try things lately with Kenny and his oral surgery, I did find a couple of recipes by a lady named Terri Casey McGrath that I wanted to combine as I knew husband would be able to eat without too much of a problem and with the cooler temps we’ve been experiencing it was a perfect idea other than the fact I could’ve made more! About another week of sipping on soups and eating lots and lots of egg dishes, things might get back to normal and if not, Husband will just have to suffer and watch me eat fried chicken and all the other good stuff I have fasted from being the nice wife that I am, ha ha! On with the chowder………

Potato And Green Bean Chowder
  • ½ lb fresh green beans, French cut
  • 3 large baking potatoes
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked crisp reserving some fat for cooking green beans
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup grated cheese of you choice, I used cheddar
  • Sea salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Steam green beans and onions with a little of the bacon drippings drizzled over them until crisp tender and set aside.
  2. Add enough water to the bean water to boil potatoes and cook them until you can just run a knife through; drain and grate on a large grater.
  3. Melt butter in a large saucepan, whisk in the flour and gradually stir in the milk.
  4. Add the cooked beans with onions and grated potatoes.
  5. Beat egg yolk and beat in a little of the thickened sauce and then stir into mixture of veggies.
  6. Add cheese and stir to melt.
  7. Add bacon or sprinkle bacon on top of your soup in a bowl as I did because Kenny has a little trouble with the bacon at this point in time!

Chopped ham also goes well with this chowder!

Hope you enjoy and I’m off to the kitchen to put dinner together with a recipe given to me by my daughter’s friend Jackie! Hope you’ve all been well and hope to see ya soon with her recipe……….

Kenny’s Kiss My Grits & Burger Breakfast Biscuit

Yesterday I turned Kenny loose in the kitchen again, oh boy! I knew what he was planning as I had to make the grits ahead of time so they would stick together in order to be fried, of course that is an option as you could put a helping of fresh cooked grits on this sandwich and it would still be yummy, a little messier but still yummy! Another substitute you could do, would be to make up some pork sausage patties versus the burger as I know a lot of people shy away from ground beef these days. He made enough to make 4 biscuits and let me tell you, one was all I could eat although my mouth was watering for more; they were just that scrumptious and filling! So with that, Herrrre’s Kenny……

Hey ya’ll…Hope everyone is having a great Thursday. Ya know it’s so close to WEEK_END it makes ya a little crazy. That’s why I was sitting and it dawned upon me that no one has put grits on a breakfast biscuit..not that I could find anyway. SOOO..I got together with my better half and we concocted this awesome breakfast sandwich.

One problem I had was keeping the egg in the onion…

See what i mean...How do you keep the egg in the damn onion?

Then about half way threw this awesome recipe..I told Wify we have earned a little nip for this venture….

After about three of these...that sandwich started to look pretty damn good..If i do say so myself!

And moving forward…This is a very filling breakfast sandwich and as you know I had to have Mayo and Ketchup on mine. Now, don’t wait to long before you try this…Toooo many of those little nippers will start a kitchen up with ya!  ;-)

That's a whole lotta good eaten right there!

Kenny's Kiss My Grits & Burger Breakfast Biscuit
  • 1 cup precooked grits
  • 4 sweet onion rings about the size of a biscuit and cut about ⅓ of an inch thick
  • 3 eggs, whisked with desired amount of salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of bacon cut in half, cooked crisp
  • ½ lb ground beef (or breakfast sausage)
  • 2 slices of American cheese
  • 4 fresh baked biscuits
  1. Divide grits into 4 patties and brown in a little of the bacon drippings on both sides. Set grits aside and keep warm with the cooked bacon.
  2. Divide ground beef (or pork) into 4 patties and cook in same pan as you cooked the grits until well cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, in another frying pan with a light coating of bacon drippings, place onion rings and brown a little on both sides.
  4. To the onion rings, divide the beaten egg evenly into each slice (egg might run over the top or under the bottom of the onion a little depending on size eggs used and how even you slice the onion as seen in pic!) and cook until fairly set, flip and continue cooking until egg is done.
  5. When eggs are almost done, top each with1/2 slice of cheese to melt.
  6. Stack each biscuit with an egg, burger patty, grit patty and top with two bacon slices.


I’m still trying to figure out why I put this recipe in instead of husband, all I did was make the grits! Enjoy…………
