The Ultimate BLT

The Ultimate BLT

BLT’s are one of my favorite quick and easy meals for lunch or dinner.  I typically just make the standard BLT sandwich that includes the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato on some bread with mayonnaise, but once in a while I like to add a special treat to the sandwich.

To make the Ultimate BLT sandwich, the two special ingredients are an egg over medium and sliced avocado.  The perfect addition to any BLT.  I just wish I had used Sour Dough Bread! 🙂

BBQ Uglies Recipe Review

 

Uglies Recipe Review

I give this recipe FIVE STARS ★★★★★

The other day I was making stuffed tomatoes and realized I had double the amount of beef that would fit into the tomatoes.  Luckily, I had just seen this recipe and the first few steps for each are exactly the same.  Turns out, we liked the Uglies so much better than the stuffed tomatoes.

This recipe can be found at AllRecipes.com.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
  • 1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Here’s are the brands that I specifically used for this recipe:

  • KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
  • Pillsbury Butter Grands
  • Kraft marbled cheddar

5 Things I Loved Most About This Recipe:

  1. Uglies are cheap.
  2. Uglies are delicious, even though they look like a mess.
  3. Uglies are easy to make.
  4. Uglies are freezable, although they do taste so much better fresh
  5. Uglies are something everyone in the family loves.

Cheese Doritos Meatballs

Phototastic-1_10_2015_f2c9d033-6972-420a-97c6-4662a1125111

This recipe comes from the ‘Beef it’s What’s For Dinner: Thirty Meals in 30 Minutes’ recipe book.

I’m a big fan of cute appetizers but I always find that when it comes time to host a party I don’t want to try anything new just in case it doesn’t turn out.  Because of that, every so often, I made little appetizer sized lunches to try out new things.

This has been one of my favorite recipes because it’s so easy and tastes delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 can mild green chilies
  • 16 cubes of Cheese (1/2″)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups crushed nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips

Sauce

  • 6 tablespoons thick taco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400*F.
  2. Combine beef, taco seasoning and chilies.  (I left out the chilies)
  3. Divide the mixture into 16 portions and set aside.
  4. Cut 16 cubes of cheese
  5. Wrap each portion around a cube of cheese
  6. Beat an egg white into a bowl (I used the whole egg)
  7. Dip the meatball into the egg and fully coat then press the meatball into the chips (I used Spicy Nacho Doritos).
  8. Place the meatballs on a greased baking pan and cook for 15 – 20 minutes.  (Be careful to watch as it gets close.  The cheese all melted out a bit too much for me)
  9. Combine the sauce ingredients into a bowl for serving.
