I was trying to think of what to stuff in this mini bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and then my husband brought in a bunch of poblanos from the garden. Usually I stuff the poblanos with meat and cheese, so it was just … Continue reading Inside-Out Stuffed Poblanos. Smoked. With Bacon.
This recipe makes eight large empanadas—I’m freezing four for later—but you could easily make smaller, snack-sized empanadas. I used half venison and half ground beef in the filling, but you could substitute any other ground meat combination, or even a … Continue reading Venison Empanadas
. . . if you use a griddle, of course. I hope you haven’t tried it right on the grill grate, but I’d like to see the pictures if you did. 😉 It means my husband won’t be getting his … Continue reading You Can Smash Burgers on the Grill . . .
Personally, I think the term patty melt is stupid, well, maybe not stupid, but not very creative. Wikipedia doesn’t seem to know its derivation, but does trace it back to the 1940s, at least. I’m guessing it was developed in … Continue reading Patty Melt on the Grill
This sauce is a nice change from tomato sauce—actually, we hardly ever eat tomato sauce, but we’re not normal. The roasted pepper sauce is mild and sweet, but if your peppers are red, you might just fool your family into … Continue reading Baked Rice with Roasted Pepper Sauce
It was one of those what-to-do-with-ground-beef days. I almost, in desperation, fell back on grilled burgers, even though it was only 54° outside, then wondered if I could do something different with meatballs—and I mean different from all the meatball … Continue reading Spicy Skewered Meatballs
I’m surprised there’s not a meatloaf blog, where every day illustrates a different version of the loved (or not) fare. There are a few blogs with meatloaf in the title, but they turn out to be about other things, even … Continue reading Just Another Meatloaf
I’m roasting some of the garden tomatoes today while I’m housebound with the roofers who are stomping and banging all over the rooftop. Oh, wait, one of them just turned on way-too-loud radio, so I won’t be reading that half-finished … Continue reading Roasted Tomato Stuffed Zucchini
What are the chances that my roasted poblano peppers will behave and let me both peel and seed them and still remain in one piece to be stuffed? I know from experience that the chances are slim, which is why … Continue reading Grilled Stuffed Poblanos, Theoretically
Feeling like getting your groove on this weekend? Then ease on down the road to this one dish (sort of) meal in a pie pan, the Crazy Crust Taco Pie. If you never made one before, don’t worry, because thanks … Continue reading 70s Flashback: Crazy Crust Taco Pie
Well, these happen to be beef, but they work with a variety of fillings. Today I used ground beef, but most of the time I use pulled chicken or beef from a chuck roast. Pulled pork is another great filling, … Continue reading Beef Enchiladas
I’m pretty sure you never saw this recipe before. My mother made “Hamburger Stew” all the time and said that her grandmother, who lived with them, made it, although she also said that her grandmother wouldn’t allow her to be … Continue reading Hamburger Stew
