Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Thighs

honey mustard chicken thighs 010

Warning: The chicken thighs are cooked in a pan in the oven. Be careful when taking the pan out, so you don't burn yourself like I did! I used an oven mit first, but when I went to take a picture of it, I forgot the oven mit. Ouch that kind of hurt somewhat, but only for a couple of seconds. Hot pan, hot pan! These chicken thighs are flavored with every persons favorite dippin sauce: honey mustard, and then topped with bacon. No need to dip the chicken in any sauce here. Unless you can find a ...

Baked Brie with Maple Bacon Onion Jam

baked brie 028

I got a lot accomplished today! Got my final project done, my portfolio, and Christmas shopping. Now, I can just sit back, relax, and wait until next week when I get 5 days off. That is going to be so nice, looking forward to that. Maple Bacon Onion Jam from Stonewall Kitchen on top of melted brie cheese will change your life! I find the rind on the cheese to be a little nasty, so I cut that all off and melted the cheese in a ramiken. The cheese gets all melty and gooey, and when you take a ...

Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies

tator tot sausage pie 043

Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Little Smokies - Pork wrapped in even more Porky fat goodness. Mmmmm My heart just stopped pounding for a bit. The first time I ever had these, somebody had brought them for Treat Day. At my old job, we had that every Thursday at 930am. One person would take turns bringing snacks for the week and usually our treat day team, had the most elaborate gourmet snack food. Sure, there were some teams that brought sugary baked treats like donuts and cookies all the time, but ...

Bacon Wrapped Stuffing

bacon wrapped stuffing 027

Bacon wrapped stuffing is the ultimate Thanksgiving appetizer. Screw serving stuffing as a side dish for Thanksgiving this year and make these little puppies instead. :) I first tried bacon wrapped stuffing at a friends house and I remember it being the best thing I ever had at that party.  I asked how it was made and it couldn't be easier. Just take a package of cooked stuffing mix and wrap some bacon around it and pop them in the oven. For my stuffing I added some sausage, cranberries, and ...

Twice Baked Potatoes with Bacon and Cheddar

twice baked potatoes 036

These twice baked potatoes are weight watcher friendly and loaded with cheese, sour cream and milk and topped with bacon! Can I tell you a secret? All these potato pictures were taken with no natural light. Yep, that is right. Some of you already know this, but I have a little studio down stairs next to the laundry room, where I'll go down stairs and take pictures. Sometimes, that can be quite the challenge, cause I'll have to hall everything down there. Sometimes, I'm afraid that I'll just ...

Weight Watcher’s Spaghetti Carbonara

spaghetti carbonara 021

I've been eating a lot of eggs lately with an English muffin. I was getting kind of bored of that, so I changed it up a bit. I can't get enough of English muffins with the nooks and crannies and then a little melted butter on that. Yummmmmm.....   Sometimes, I'll add some bacon on top and cheese to make a breakfast sandwich. Spaghetti Carbonara is almost like a deconstructed version of that sandwich. The noodles are the English muffins that the cheese and egg sticks too, and then the bacon. If ...

Caramel Bacon Popcorn

caramel bacon popcorn 004

So, it's Boy Scout pop corn season again. They were at the Cash Wise store trying to get us to buy some on Friday night. We told them that we have a neighbor who sells the same popcorn. We've bought from them the last two years and we STILL have two bags of popcorn in our pantry. I'm trying to use up the popcorn and found this recipe for Caramel Bacon popcorn. I have never tried making popcorn over the stove top before since we have an air popper. Caramel and me have a bad history together. ...

Bacon, Egg, and Gruyère Breakfast Sandwich

breakfast sandwich 018

This week has been lasting FOREVER. Does anyone else feel that way?  The time feels like it has just stopped on some days, and the only way to make it through the day is buy buying some Halloween candy at the grocery store. Yep, already have bought my first bag and I couldn't help myself. The store likes to do this sneaky thing where they have this display of fruits right by the deli check out and right next to the fruit is bags of Halloween candy. Yikes. I'll probably end up going through a ...
