705 – Tater Tots w/ bacon

Tater Tots w/ bacon

What you need:

Tater Tots
BBQ sauce
Brown sugar
Toothpicks optional
Cookie sheet & a cooling rack to sit atop the baking sheet

Mix ¼ cup of ketchup
3 Tbls of BBQ sauce
2 Tbls of Brown Sugar

Mix the ingredients until they are smooth
Take the bacon from the wrapper and cut in half
Take one piece of bacon and lightly brush the mixture over the bacon strip – fold bacon strip long ways and place a tater tot on the bacon and roll the bacon around the tater tot. You can hold in place with a toothpick but sometimes the toothpick will separate the tater tot

Place the tater top on the cooling rack that you have placed inside of a baking sheet so the grease will drip down and leave your food crispy. Line your baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.

Bake 30-35 min. at 425 until bacon is crispy

Ham and Onion snack sandwiches

What you need:

Store bought dinner rolls I like the extra small rolls that come in the tin holder
1 lb. Ham slices
1 large Onion sweet if you can find one
1 stick of Butter
*Poppy seeds optional

Take the rolls out of the tin and cut in half so you have a bottom and a top of the rolls
Brush the bottom rolls with butter and add well-chopped onions add a thin layer of mustard (I like spicy). Take the ham and chop it so you have small bits and place on the bottom roll. *Add in Poppy seeds over the ham if you like. Take the roll tops and cover the now made sandwiches.
Take foil and cover and seal the rolls (or put back in the tin) and cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes at 350.
Let sit till cooled off a bit and enjoy

Simple Colorful Dessert

What you need:
Drained or fresh strawberries
Store bought tapioca pudding
Clear punch cups or something small like that.

Take some clear cups and put in a large helping of drained (or your favorite fruit) and then add tapioca pudding and serve chilled
