Bacon Roll Ups II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This recipe was simple to make. Rolling up the bread and bacon got messy but not unbearable. I recommend buying good quality bacon. I went through 1.5 packages because some of my bacon was fatty and I did not want to use one strip of pure fat. Also, I baked the roll ups for 30 minutes at 350 and it did not seem like enough. I increased the temperature to 375 and baked another 10 minutes and they were perfect. Before I served them I pulled out the toothpicks because I did not want anyone to accidently pop one in their mouth with the toothpick still in it. I will defiantly make this again.

Cheesy Bacon and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I am rating this recipe 3 stars for now. I have not served it yet but I am excited to hear what everyone has to say. I used a frozen bag of Potatoes O’Brien. After I mixed everything together I realized it would have looked and probably tasted better if I browned the potatoes first. I also added 2 pounds, yes I said 2 pounds of bacon. I made this for my husband to take to work and he works with a bunch of men who are bacon lovers. I used about 1.5 pounds of the bacon crumpled up in the mixture and used the remaining .5 pound of bacon to sprinkle on top of the casserole. I also had 3 cups of cheese on hand so I threw all of that in. I did not have shredded parmesan cheese so I used the cheap canned stuff. Otherwise I followed the recipe as listed. Overall this was a pretty simple recipe to throw together. I think my version needs to be renamed Heart Attack Casserole. I hope the guys like it. If I remember, I will update this once I get some feedback on how it tastes.

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This is my favorite fudge and it is simple to make. I melted the chocolate in the microwave. I put it in for 30 seconds at a time and took it out to stir. I continued until the chocolate was smooth and creamy. Also, make sure to leave cut or break the cookies into large chunks to prevent the fudge from turning to a dingy gray color. I make sure to pick up the cookie pieces from the cutting board instead of sliding them off the cutting board into the chocolate. This was I don’t get any crumbs in the fudge.

Easy Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
So good and so easy you would be silly not to try this recipe. One thing I should mention…do not make this on a cookie sheet. The first time I made this in a 9X13 dish. It worked well. The next time I got lazy and made it on a cookie sheet, BIG MISTAKE! The toffee melted and spilled into the bottom of my oven.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This is my third time making this recipe and it surely won’t be my last. This time it came out a little on the soggy side even though I drained out most of the egg mixture. Still, it tasted delicious. Next time I will be sure to flip the bread after a couple of hours and drain all remaining liquid before baking. I love the sticky buttery topping. Make sure not to skip this step. You really don’t have to warm the butter on the stove. You can let the butter get to room temper and then blend the topping without heat. Then spread the topping on before you bake it. If you are trying this for the first time and you and not completely happy with the results then try again. I promise you it is worth it. This recipe is simple and yummy. I think that each time you make it you have to adjust the amount of liquid depending on the size of eggs you use and the freshness and size of the loaf of bread. Since these variables greatly impact the outcome I do not think it is fair to grade the recipe based on consistency since it is likely that no two attempts will turn out the same.
