Bacon, Swiss and Mushroom Meatloaf

As you can see I took full advantage of the hamburger I bought on sale.  When I first tried this recipe I was a little worried about the swiss cheese due to the fact my children do not like it.  The fact is they did not even notice it and loved every bite of it.  It is a fabulous recipe to double and freeze one for later.  The red you see in the picture is the bacon.  I made sure that it got cooked throughout.  I was a little freaked out the first time I made this when I cut into it and thought that it was not cooked throughout.  I was relieved when I realized it was the bacon. (Uncooked meat tends to "freak" me out a bit!!)

Bacon, Swiss and Mushroom Meatloaf
1 package bacon,cooked crispy and diced.
1- 4 oz can mushrooms or 4 fresh mushrooms sliced.
1 small onion finely chopped .
1 1/2 lbs. hamburger
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 cups swiss cheese shredded
1/2 cup crushed corn flakes

In a large bowl mix beef, egg and milk. Add mushrooms, onions, cheese and corn flakes and mix together well. Shape into a loaf and place in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Then drain fat and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese (or swiss) and return to the oven for 10 more minutes until the cheese is melted. Allow to rest 10 minutes out of the oven before slicing. 
*Optional sprinkle with bacon pieces after adding the cheese on top.

To make it easy to cook after freezing.  Shape into a loaf in the pan.  

Dump it out of the pan and wrap it in plastic wrap.  Place back into the pan.
Freeze for a short period of time.  Then dump it out of the pan. Wrap in tin foil. Throw back in to the freezer. This way it is already to go right back in the pan when you are ready to cook it.  Simple for a crazy time!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
