My thoughts wandered back to a dish that my friend, Jen, made for a little get together we had. I remember eating one serving and then casually passing by the food table about 100 more times to keep getting more.
I wish I had gotten a picture of this dish last week, because they look so yummy! By the time I thought of taking a picture, they were practically gone!
~These are quite the crowd pleaser~
- 24 party size potato rolls
- 1/2 lb. sliced swiss cheese
- 1/2 lb. sliced ham
- 2 sticks (1cup) butter
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 2 Tbls. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tbls. mustard
- 2Tbls.poppy seeds
- Slice rolls in half and place bottoms in 9 by 13 baking pan.
- Layer on cheese and ham and top with roll tops.
- Melt butter in a saucepan and add sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and poppy seeds. Bring to a boiland let boil 2 minutes.
- Immediately pour over rolls and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Can be made ahead and heated when ready to serve.
~This took less than 10 minutes to make!~
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 bell pepper (any color), cut into four 1/2 inch thick rings
- 4 large eggs
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 tsp grated Parmesan (I actually shredded some sharp Cheddar instead)
- 4 slices multigrain bread, toasted
- 8 cups mixed salad greens (I scrapped this and make some home fries with a potato I had laying around)
- In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp oil over medium-high.
- Add bell pepper, then crack 1 egg into the middle of each pepper ring.
- Season with salt and pepper and cook until egg whites are mostly set but yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Gently flip and cook 1 minute more for over easy. Sprinkle with Parmesan (or Cheddar) and place each egg on a slice of toast (I put the eggs between two slices of toast to make a breakfast sandwich).
- Toss salad greens with 1 tsp oil and season with salt and pepper, serve alongside eggs (like I said before, I didn't do this because I didn't have any greens...but I made some home fries instead).
~These are my husband's favorite cookies~
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 cups quick cooking oats
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (I skipped these)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
