These nachos are the perfect appetizer for Super Bowl Sunday.  What makes them perfect is bacon!  Anything with bacon in it is guaranteed to be a big hit for your Big Game day party.  I got this recipe comes from the July 7, 2014 issue of People magazine.  These nachos are loaded with cheddar cheese and creamy avocado.  They are simply delicious.  I suggest that you top these babies with a dollop of sour cream and a jalapeno pepper.  This recipe is sure to be a winner!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

I like to use pickled jalapenos in this recipe.  I place each sliced jalapeno on paper towels to remove the excess moisture before placing them on the nachos.

The first time that I saw a clafoutis was at a little French café in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  I remember thinking, "I don't know what it is, but I want it."  The clafoutis that I had in that café was beautiful, sweet, and simplistic.  Clafoutis are traditionally made sweet with fresh fruit.  Cherries are the usual choice of fruit, but you might see any type in this classic French dish.  I decided to do a savory one as I have a lot of tomatoes from my garden that I needed to use.  The recipe is simple, and you can change it according to your tastes.  If you can make pancake batter, then you can make a clafoutis.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

You can use any mature cheese such as: gruyere, mature comté, or cheddar.

The recipe calls for cherry tomatoes, but any small tomato will do.  I used small Roma tomatoes from my garden, and the results were lovely.

You can also use different herbs too.  The next time I make this, I will use a thyme and chive combination.  Some herbs to c...

If you love bacon and cheddar cheese, you are going to love this savory pie!  I have had this recipe for many years.  I do not know where I got it, but I am very glad that I have it!  Bacon and cheddar cheese compliment each other (taste-wise), so they are perfect in this pie.  I like to say that everything is better with pie! (I certainly think so.)

This bacon cheddar pie tastes good and works for any meal - breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  You can even eat it as a snack if you want.  It is an easy meal for company when served with either fresh fruit or salad (depending on the time of day).  When I make a sweet pie using my water whipped pastry shell (click 'pastry shell' to go to that blog post), I often use the extra shell for this recipe. Here is the perfect pie recipe for those bacon and cheddar cheese lovers!  Enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

Super bowl Sunday is fast approaching, and it is time for chowing down on game food.  When I think of game food, I usually think bacon!  This recipe is fast and easy to make, and your family and friends will love it.  I know mine do.  If that isn't enough for you, it also has bacon!  This party food will be a hit on game day (or on any day that you have company).  While it may be a cold day on Super bowl Sunday, this dip is served warm out of your oven.  So dig in and may your team score as big as this bacon dip will on game day!

Bon Appetit!

A few tips:

1.  I use real bacon in this recipe.  The original recipe calls for bacon bits, so I kept it in the list of ingredients for those that prefer to use the bacon bits.

2.  I like to use a high quality block of cheddar cheese and shred it myself with a cheese grater.  I find that the taste of a block of cheese far surpasses the pre-grated packaged cheese.

3.  The green onion can be thinly sliced rather th...
