Ingredients:

4 beefsteak tomatoes, hollowed out
1/2lb very thinly sliced beef (I used pre sliced spedini meat from my local meat market.)
4 slices provolone cheese
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/4-1/2 onion, thinly sliced
Mushrooms are optional, I will probably add them in next time I make these
Onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°

Hollow out tomatoes with a spoon, then season and add a half slice of provolone to the inside.

Add some olive oil to a fry pan, then veggies. (Add mushrooms later, as they cook faster than the peppers and onions.) Sautée for a few minutes, then add the beef. Cook until no longer pink and remove from heat.

Stuff tomatoes with meat and veggies mixture. Top with remaining half slices of provolone. I baked the tomatoes in a muffin pan to prevent and rolling while cooking. Cook until cheese is melted and the tomatoes are semi soft, but not mushy. (The skin will easily peel off.)

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
3 large potatoes, washed and sliced 1/8″-1/4″ thick
6 slices of cooked and chopped bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 cup chopped green onion
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375*

Cook bacon until crispy. Set aside bacon grease for cookie sheet and potatoes.

Wash and slice potatoes, then place the slices in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and keep boiling for about 5 mins. (Don’t let em get mushy!) Drain and then layer them on a cookie sheet which has been greased with reserved bacon grease. (Or olive oil)

Brush bacon grease (or olive oil) on potato slices, then season with salt/pepper/onion powder. Top with cheese and bacon (cooked and chopped ahead of time) and bake around 15 mins. You can chop some green onion to sprinkle on after they are cooked. Enjoy!

Biscuits N’ Gravy Casserole

Here’s a wonderful weekend recipe that keeps well in the fridge.

20140109-102908.jpg

Ingredients:
3/4 lb breakfast sausage, cooked
1 pkg McCormick Sausage Flavor Country Gravy, prepared (I used milk and water)
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 can of Bake House Creations Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits (or any brand of 8 canned biscuits)
Salt and pepper to taste

20140109-102411.jpg

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350* , then grease or spray a 3qt baking dish. Take four biscuits and flatten them out covering most of the bottom of your baking dish. (Doesn’t have to be perfect!)

Scatter cooked sausage and cheese, leaving some cheese aside to sprinkle on top. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour evenly over sausage. Cut the remaining 4 biscuits in four, then use the biscuit pieces to top the casserole. Lastly, pour gravy on top and sprinkle remaining cheese.

Bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes. Make sure the center biscuits are cooked! Keeps great in the fridge, and tastes just as good reheated the next day. Enjoy!
