Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf

Bacon makes everything better, and meatloaf is no exception. Wrapping the meatloaf in bacon imparts wonderful flavor, and keeps the meatloaf from drying. Click for the recipe

Fried Hard-Boiled Eggs

I love hard boiled eggs. I love them plain, with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I love them topped with a variety of toppings – mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce. Obviously, I love them deviled (who doesn’t?).

I make a dozen hard boiled eggs at least once a week, so we can always have one or two if we’re hungry between meals.

My latest egg discovery: hard boiled eggs halved and fried in butter until golden-brown. They come out so delightful: warm and buttery, soft yet crispy. Fried hard boiled eggs make a perfect snack, a great breakfast, and they are also very good for lunch or dinner, as a salad topping. Click for the recipe

Beef Kabobs

While I wouldn’t dream of turning a fatty, juicy ribeye steak into kabobs, I find that top sirloin is a bit on the lean side for my taste, so when it’s on sale and I do buy it, I like to turn it into well-seasoned beef kabobs. Click for the recipe

This delicious grilled cheese sandwich is made with my super easy, super quick low carb microwave bread. And while admittedly it’s not exactly like real bread (it’s soft and a little eggy), the cheesy, buttery goodness of this warm sandwich definitely hits the spot! Click for the recipe
