Bacon & Eggs in Toast Cups (6 cups) 6 slices of bread 6 slices of bacon 6 eggs 1/2 cup of shredded cheese salt & pepper 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin pan with butter non-stick spray. 2. Using a cookie cutter, cut circles out of bread slices about 3 inches in diameter. (I confess I do not have a cookie cutter so I use the lid to my tub of orzo pasta and just cut around the edges ;D) 3. Take bread circles and press them into the muffin pan, set aside. 4. Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Cook bacon on the skillet until partially cooked but still pliable, about 3 minutes. 5. Shape bacon strips into the toast cups, fill with 1 Tbs of shredded cheese. Place in the oven for 5 minutes, allowing the bacon to toast just a little more. Remove from oven. 6. Crack your egg and separate out most of the egg white. Drop eggs into the cups, sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Place back in the oven and cook until white begins to set, about another 8 – 10 minutes. The yolk should be creamy. 7. Remove from oven when done and pop out using a spoon, serve warm.
Golden Macaroni and Cheese Adapted from Southern Living 2004 Annual Recipes Ingredients 1 (8-ounce) package elbow macaroni 2 cups milk (I use whole milk) 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon onion salt 2 (10-ounce) blocks sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded and divided ( I use one block of Sharp Cheddar and one block of Extra-Sharp Cheddar cheese) 1 cup soft plain breadcrumbs ( The recipe suggest homemade breadcrumbs, but I use store bought - not Italian breadcrumbs, just plain) 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted (I use butter) COOK macaroni according to package directions; drain well. Set aside. PLACE milk, flour, and onion salt in a quart jar; cover tightly, and shake vigorously 1 minute. STIR together flour mixture, 3 1/2 cups cheese, and macaroni. POUR macaroni mixture into a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish or 2 (11 inch) oval baking dishes. Sprinkle evenly with breadcrumbs and remaining 1 cup cheese; drizzle evenly with melted butter. BAKE at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Easy Parmesan Knots 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits ( I used Pillsbury Golden Layers Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits) 1/4 cup canola oil 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (I did use the green can stuff) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes Roll each biscuit into a 12-in. rope and tie into a knot; tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; brush the warm knots with the mixture. Yield:10 knots.
Preheat the oven to 220˚C (425˚F). Put the potato on a chopping board, flat side down. Start from one end of the potato, cut almost all the way through, at about 3 to 4 mm intervals. Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between the slits. Scatter some butter on top of each potato. Then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh is soft.
