Loaded Bake Potato Salad


Another easypeasy recipe that I whipped together. i take ideas here and there from other recipes then tweak them to make them my own. This one is super easy and tasted amazing.

6 to 8 white potatos peeled, quartered and boiled for about 10 just before they get tender

1/4 cup of mayonnaise

1/2 lb of bacon cooked (extra crispy)

1/4 cup of diced scallions

1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste if needed but I didn’t even have to use it because between the bacon and scallions there was so much flavor in there already.

Mix all the above ingredients together and serve

Mini Taco Muffin Bites


These are so simple to make and they call for really basic ingridients. We were going to a friends house to have a fire and I didn’t feel like running out to the store so I used what I had on hand. Bisquick, ground beef, taco seasoning, eggs, Franks Red Hot Sauce, and shredded cheddar cheese.

2 cups of Bisquick

1 1/2 cup of milk

2 eggs

1 lb of ground beef

1 pkg of taco seasoning(any kind will do)

Franks Red Hot Sauce

All you need to do is mix your Bisquick, eggs, and milk and set aside.

Brown your ground meat, drain fat, and add your taco seasoning mix(follow recipe on the package as if you were making tacos). I like to add about 3 tsp of Franks Red Hot Sauce to give it a little kick.

Grease your mini muffin pan with either Crisco Shortening or just softened butter

Layer starting with your Bisquick mix first, then your taco meat mixture, and then top with your shredded cheddar cheese!

I showed it in steps here.

Bake about 12 to 15 mins on 375. Just be sure to preheat your oven at about 425 for 5 or 10 mins first.

Let cool before removing and then they should easily pop right out.
