This is a simple yet delicious meal and one of my favorites. A cast iron skillet is my preference, however, it works well in any oven-safe pan. I like to add root vegetables to the pan, including carrots and potatoes, seven ingredients, 1 1/2 hours later, dinner is served.

It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again.

If you want great barbecue go to Can’t Stop Smokin’. I had no idea how this restaurant was going to be, but decided to try it. I was so glad I did! The place was clean, the employees were friendly, the décor was beautiful and the food was so good and well priced. The brisket was moist and cooked perfectly. Everything I’ve had there has been really good and if you can’t decide the employees are very helpful.
November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!
