Bacon. Need I say more?
Not just ANY bacon....but seriously the BEST BACON EVER.
I'm not even joking here. Two plates of this were polished off in a matter of minutes. Even our boys proclaimed this was "The BEST BACON EVER"....so it must be true.
If you've never tried seasoning your bacon, you've been missing out. And I will say "You're welcome" in advance...because I know you are going to thank me.
So here goes:
NOT TOM'S Best Bacon Ever
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp Not Tom's All Purpose Seasoning
Thick cut bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix NOT TOM'S and brown sugar together and pat to coat onto both sides of bacon.
Placed coated bacon slices on a roasting rack on a foil lined pan.
Bake for 15 mins and then flip and bake another 15-20 mins (to desired crispiness). Checking bacon frequently to avoid burning.
If you love some good home cooking you have GOT to try this mouthwatering recipe for your next biscuits and gravy! Seriously..the boys could NOT get enough. Just enough spice to give it that extra savory flavor - you definitely want to make a whole batch (and some extra biscuits), because this will be gone in a flash!
NOT TOM'S Sausage Gravy
1 lb ground breakfast sausage
1 lb ground spicy sausage
1-2 Tbsp Not Tom's All-Purpose Seasoning (to desired flavor)
1/2 cup flour
5 cups whole milk
Salt to desired taste
Brown sausage over medium heat. Add NOT TOM’S, and 1/2 cup flour and stir in. Allow to cook for 1-2 mins, stirring frequently. Add milk slowly, one cup at a time, while stirring continuously to create your gravy (the gravy will continue to thicken as it cooks). Continue to cook on medium heat while stirring periodically as the sauce cooks. Add salt to desired taste.
Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally until gravy is to desired consistency.
Serve with biscuits and enjoy!
Sometimes there is just NOTHING better than some good comfort food and that was the case this weekend. I was craving some chili - yes even WITH the 100 degree weather we were having here in Phoenix! Despite the heat I wanted some heat....in the form of some delicious, home cooked chili!
I scrounged thru the cabinet and fridge and totally lucked out that I had everything I needed to make a giant, delicious, mouth-watering pot of it!
I could literally eat half the pot of this in one sitting, it is sooooo good! Simple to make (just over 30 minutes) and sure to have all of your chili-lovers asking for a second helping!
Heat the oil over high heat in a large heavy pot and sautée diced onions, bell pepper and garlic until golden brown (about 5 minutes).
Once lightly browned, add ground turkey and cook over medium heat until browned (around 5-10 minutes).
Liquefy 1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes in blender and add to pot, along with 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, broth and all three cans of beans (after draining and rinsing). Mix in 3 Tbsp NOT TOM's. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve in bowls and garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, diced green onions, sour cream and lime wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
