Makin’ Bacon Pancakes…

This put a giant smile on my face today. From “Adventure Time” and then looped…

I’m sorry about this last week, between work, a charity event, election night and date night (yeah, I had one of those too) I just wasn’t able to sit down and craft posts. I’ll do better this next week.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Thankin’ for Bacon – Stuffing & Potatoes…

It’s a twofer tonight as we finish out our side dishes.  So far on our Thankin’ for Bacon Thanksgiving table we have:

  1. Bacon Apple Pie – Dessert
  2. Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts – Appetizer
  3. Spinach, Bacon and Onion Dip – Appetizer
  4. Green Beans and Bacon Sauté – Veggie Side
  5. Carrots with Country Bacon – Veggie Side

What’s missing?  Some good old, stick to the ribs, potatoes and stuffing!

Let’s start with the taters…

Cheddar and Mashed Potato Gratin

Ingredients:

  • 4 bacon (slices chopped)
  • 1 cup shallot (sliced)
  • 6 cups mashed potatoes (leftover)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped, thyme and chives)
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (grated)

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cook bacon and shallots in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until bacon is crisp, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in mashed potatoes and herbs. Mix in 1/4 cup milk, adding more milk if mixture is dry. Season potato mixture with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer to 2-quart gratin dish. Sprinkle cheese over and bake until cheese is beginning to brown, about 30 minutes.

Aren’t those yummy?!?  With something as heavy as that, I thought we’d go a slightly different route with the stuffing…

Wild Rice Cranberry and Cornbread Stuffing

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice bacon (chopped) – Ed. Note: feel free to add more ;-)
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 2 onions (chopped)
  • 3 celery ribs (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups cremini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 cup cranberries (fresh)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups cornbread (crumbled)
  • 1 1/2 cups wild rice (cooked)
  • 1/2 cup pecans (toasted and chopped)

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon until crisp, remove and set aside.
  2. Add butter to pan and melt. Add onions, celery and mushrooms. Saute for 8 to 10 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add cranberries and chicken broth. Bring to boil, then remove from heat.
  4. Add corn bread, cooked wild rice, pecans and bacon.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Roast inside turkey or in casserole dish (about 30 minutes at 350 degrees).

We wrap up our week tomorrow with the star of the show…
