Bacon CornbreadBy Ginny's Team"They" say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But no one ever said breakfast had to start the day. Breakfast foods aren't just for morning anymore. We have quite a few breakfast recipes that work great for any meal of the day. One recipe that works with any meal is Bacon Cornbread. It's great for breakfast with maple syrup drizzle, with a pad of butter for a mid-morning snack, or as a side for chili on the cooler days. We like to make this recipe using the loaf pan from our new 3-Piece Eco Ceramic Bakeware Set.
One-Pot Cowboy BeansBy Ginny's TeamIf you want a hearty and fulfilling main dish, look no further than one-pot cowboy beans! We love the simplicity of the cooking instructions: simply cook bacon, cook ground beef and onion, and mix everything together in a Dutch oven! The brown sugar coats the beans and meat for a sweet, surprising glaze. Plus, any recipe that calls for a half pound of bacon is sure to be a winner. You can also top the one-pot cowboy beans with any shredded cheese you might have lying around.
Grilled Bacon Jalapeño PoppersBy Ginny's TeamPrepare the perfect party food with grilled bacon jalapeño poppers! Only seven ingredients and only eight minutes of grilling means you can feed a crowd without losing any time. Bacon and cheddar cheese are a sure crowd pleaser, while cream cheese and green onions add a complex taste to these delicious party treats. Don't forget to avoid touching your eyes when preparing the grilled bacon jalapeño peppers; you don't want to get any pepper juice in your eye! Grilled bacon jalapeño poppers are a great choice for spring barbecues or backyard parties. You'll be surprised at how fast they disappear off the plate!
Bacon Green BeansBy Ginny's TeamIf you're looking for a simple side dish that can be whipped up in a hurry with a few classic ingredients, look no further than these bacon green beans! You only need bacon, onion, garlic, fresh green beans, and a little bit of seasoning to get the perfect complement to any main dish. We love the crispness of the fresh green beans mixed with the sweet savoriness of bacon. Another delicious treat? Use the bacon grease leftover from frying your bacon and use it to cook the onions and the garlic. Bacon green beans have never been so simple, so delicious, and so much fun!
