All ya need is a cold beer and a dash of hot sauce..

These little sandwiches are sure to please your Super Bowl guests! You can also have most of the ingredients prepped early so all you have to do is basically throw them together, pop them in the oven and their ready to be enjoyed by all…. But first let me share my week……………………

Tuesday we had to go to Gainsville to have a recall fixed on our car and while we were there, looked at some cars they had for sale. We were tired of having to drive all the way down there just to get the Tiguan serviced and wanted to have a vehicle that we could have taken care of here locally. Well folks, we drove home in a 2015 Equinox LS which is like brand spanking new; moved on up in the world, love it!

Kenny was happy to get a Chevy back in the driveway!

It took us 4 hours at the dealership and we were due to go visit granddaughter which we did do, but just not for as long as we would have liked. Urlic was sound asleep when we arrived and still out like a light when we left. Brother Niklaus on the other hand, was wide awake and Gram and Pappy got to hold him and give him lotsa  hugs and kisses as he is becoming much more alert now. He is only two months old and almost too heavy for this old body to pick up, gonna be just like his older brother and daddy, BIG boy! We also got to take Eric’s pickles to him (Normally Sweethot Dill Pickles which we will also enjoy on our platter on Sunday) and as he was at work already he didn’t get to try them when we were there. When he got home though, he about demolished the whole jar before the night was over, guess he liked them, YES, score one for Gram!


Back to the Super Bowl and these little bites from heaven. Rooting for the Panthers Sunday but really don’t care who wins as we like both teams, picked them to see some newer blood take the title! We will be having Kenny’s traditional Po-Po Platter filled with lots of cold cuts, cheeses and assorted pickles piled high on all different kinds of crackers…. Can’t wait as it always seems to taste better on the actual day of the Bowl. I was so excited shopping the other day as I found that crescent rolls now come in sheets without the perforations, so perfect for this and so many other recipes! So with that I give you…..

Taco Sandwich Bites
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) crescent rolls or sheet
  • ½ lb lean ground beef
  • ½ pkg taco seasoning
  • 1 small tomato chopped small
  • ¼ to ½ cup of chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Taco sauce and sour cream for dipping
  1. Cook ground beef and season with taco seasoning; drain off any fat.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls or sheet and halve (if using rolls, press together perforations on both halves.
  3. Place one half on a lightly greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with one cup of the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle seasoned beef over cheese followed by the onions, peppers, tomatoes and finally with the remaining cheese.
  5. Place the other half of dough on top and pinch edges together to seal.
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Crunchy Turkey Crescent Pockets

As Steve Harvey always says, “Boy, we gotta a good one for you today!”

Make plenty...because they go fast!

Make plenty…because they go fast!

With a little turkey left over in the frig and all the other ingredients needed for these little sandwich pockets, I was on a roll, literally! Coating these little morsels in melted butter,  followed by a nice coating of bread crumbs before hitting the oven, made them soooo very moist and tender they just melted in your mouth! It was almost impossible to eat them slowly so you could savor the tastiness and I found I wanted to just devour them quickly but did manage to hold myself at bay!

Crunchy Turkey Crescent Pockets
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 6 oz whipped cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped jalapeno peppers, more or less to your taste
  • 16 oz chopped, cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 pkg crescent rolls
  • Melted butter for coating
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • Dried cilantro and cumin powder to taste (I used about 2 teaspoons of cilantro and 1 teaspoon of cumin)
  1. Cream the softened butter and cream cheese together and mix in the turkey.
  2. Separate the crescents and add about ¼ cup of the meat mixture to the wide part of the roll.
  3. Roll up each being sure to enclose the filling and seal.
  4. Coat each pocket completely with the melted butter and then roll into the bread crumbs that have been seasoned with the cilantro and cumin.
  5. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Just happened to have some homemade cole slaw left over it was a great side to an already super sandwich and with our temps peaking at 100 degrees or more in the afternoons, who feels like doing much cooking either inside or on the grill anyway………….Enjoy everyone!
