Boston Terriers

It's only a few weeks into vacation and my family is already tired of "summer" foods.    I love the ease of tossing a few burgers or hot dogs on the grill, so I have to find ways to make them more interesting.     Since the challenge ingredient on Taste of Home Cook's Corner is beans this week, I thought I'd give these Boston Terriers a try.   

I used a can of navy beans that I drained and rinsed well.    I chopped up my bacon too much, next time I would leave it in bigger pieces, it pretty much disappeared in the final product.    Overall, this was a nice, easy from scratch-ish BBQ baked bean.      :)

Boston Terriers

1 onion, diced (I used a Vidalia)
1/4lb bacon, chopped
1c white beans (I used canned Navy, drained and rinsed)
1/2c ketchup
1/2c water
1T brown sugar
1T mustard
1T apple cider vinegar
Hot dogs (we prefer all beef, Ball park or Oscar Meyer)
New England Style Rolls, buttered and toasted to golden brown

Saute bacon and onion together until the bacon is brown and the onion is translucent.   Add beans, ketchup, water, mustard, brown sugar and vinegar.     Add hot dogs and simmer until mixture becomes thick.     Place hot dog into toasted roll, and top with the bean mixture.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
