Corn Muffin Stuffed Peppers

Really meant to get back here sooner to share this recipe that actually came out much better than expected and not the disaster that I thought it might be! It’s been a very busy few weeks here as Kenny and I decided to have a garage sale that started with one weekend and ended up two with people coming even in between! Digging stuff out from sheds, the barn, closets and anywhere else you could think of, we filled our carport plus the back porch with all kind of goodies no longer of use to us. Even thinking about doing it again in the beginning of April to downsize our junk a little more; you know, one man’s junk another man’s treasure!!!
We also lost both of our chickens to some kind of varmints, opossums most likely and that was not a pretty picture. We have since replaced them thanks to our wonderful neighbors and are getting eggs again. There are also baby chicks in a box in our home waiting to grow up and go out to their  own coop for more eggs down the road! And now let me get on to what I fixed and you’re gonna have to trust me on how they came out as my photographer (husband) has somehow lost the pics somewhere between cyber space or the camera,,,,,,,, gonna have to trade him in, haha! But trust me that the next time I bake them off, I will get more pictures. I am not going to write this in the form of an actual recipe as it is can vary in many ways!

Our future egg layers…

In my thoughts on this, I didn’t want to make the traditional pepper stuffing of meat and sauce as I thought the sauce would have too much liquid with adding the corn bread mix on top. Instead I made a large stir-fry pan of pork sausage (our home made sausage) with chopped bell pepper, onions, seasoning, oyster sauce, salt, pepper, ground ginger and a little soy sauce. You will need to season to taste with the amount you make. I figured it this way, if the peppers were a bust, I at least had more food that was edible, ha ha! Made a big pot of rice and mixed some of the pork mixture with enough rice to fill three good sized bell peppers. I made a batch of our Country Corn Bread for the topping or any corn bread recipe you use, and just baked off the extra batter for use later on. I did not cook off the bell peppers prior to filling, just cut the tops off and remove the seeds and proceed to fill them with the pork and rice mixture to about 1-1/2 inches from the top. Filled the top with corn bread batter to almost the very top. Placed them in an appropriate sized dish and baked them off in a 350 degree oven until the corn bread has risen and is golden brown on top! Well, I will be making these again real soon because they were a big hit here at home. The peppers by not precooking them were nice and crunchy as you would have in a stir-fry dish and totally delicious.

Well I hope you enjoy and let me know how yours comes out!

P.S. Just bought one of those Power Air Fryer as seen on TV and be prepared for more of that as we are addicted…….

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……….

Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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!
