I'll go first:

Mac n' Cheese

3 cups pasta (elbow macaroni or shells or whatever)

2 cups milk

2 tbsp butter

1/4 cup flour

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

8 oz pkg Velveeta


Cook pasta until al dente, drain and set aside.

In saucepan melt butter and slowly incorporate flour, cook approximately 3 minutes but do not let it burn or turn brown. Start adding milk and stir until there are no more clumps of flour & butter. Add Velveeta chunks and shredded cheese, cook until smooth and creamy.

Grease cooking dish. Mix cheese and pasta together, add to pan. Cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

I called it Easy Chicken Bruschetta:

- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1.5 lb chicken breasts/thighs thawed
- 1 box Stovetop stuffing (I use Savory Herbs)
- Shredded mozzarella

Preheat over 350. Dice chicken.

In a bowl, combine diced tomatoes including the liquid with stuffing mix. Mix well.

Grease 9X13 casserole dish. Add chicken to dish, creating a single layer. Cover chicken layer with tomato/stuffing mixture. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Once Chicken is cooked, top with cheese. Bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Or breakfast, only you use a second package of bacon, and dinner is bacon WITH a bun, right?

I recommend asking if the Natalie's Nummies cookbooks can still be purchased, by the way. Great cookbook compiled by a fellow BOLer with recipes from family, friends, and BOLers too!

We do this, except we use whole breasts, grill the veggies and breasts without skewers, and replace the tarragon with oregano and a little thyme.

The Sovereign State Of Oklahom...
This is a cornbread recipe I came up with....
1 10" cast iron skillet
1 box of jiffy cornbread mix
1/3 cup of milk
Two tblspns of honey
Three strips of finely diced bacon
One finely diced jalepeno
One finely diced green chili
1/4 of a finely diced white onion
A handful of shredded cheddar

First render the bacon in the skillet till crispy. Add about a quarter of the peppers and onions. Fish them out and put in a mixing bowl and transfer the skillet full of bacon fat to a 420 degree oven while you mix the other stuff all together in the mixing bowl. let the mixture rest for a few minutes then pour it directly in the hot bacon grease. Then bake until it rises and is golden brown with a gorgeous brown crust. Serve with real butter and honey!
