Bacon Explosion- http://www.food.com/recipe/Bacon-Explosion-353308

My Dh made this last year and it was ahuge hit.

2 lbs thick cut bacon
2 lbs Italian sausage
3/4 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite)
3 tablespoons barbecue seasoning (your favorite rub, recommended Bad Byron's Butt Rub, Rendezvous Famous Seasoning, or Steven Raichlen)
Directions:
1
To kick off the construction of this pork medley you’ll need to create a 5x5 bacon weave. If the strips you’re using aren’t wide enough to span 5x5 inches, then you may need to use a few extra slices to fill out the pattern. Just make sure your weave is tight and that you end up with a nice square shape to work with.
2
The next step is to add some barbecue seasoning on top of your bacon weave. (BBQ Addict recommends Bad Byron's Butt Rub, Rendezvous Famous Seasoning, or Steven Raichlen's All-Purpose Rub).
3
Now that you’re pork is well seasoned, it’s time to add more pork. Take two pounds of Italian sausage and layer it directly on top of your bacon weave. Be sure to press the sausage to the outer edges of the bacon creating a patty that is the same thickness all the way across. Most grocery stores carry loose sausage, so just pick out one you like.
4
Next up is bacon layer number two. Take the remaining bacon slices and fry them up the same way you would for breakfast. If you like soft bacon, make it soft. If you like crunchy bacon, make it crunchy.
5
Since this is a barbecue recipe, we need to add another layer of barbecue flavor. Take your favorite sauce and drizzle it all over the top of the bacon pieces. (BBQ Addict recommends Burnt Finger BBQ’s homemade competition sauce). Once you’ve sauced the bacon, sprinkle on some more of the barbecue seasoning you used on the bacon weave.
6
Very carefully separate the front edge of the sausage layer from the bacon weave and begin rolling backwards. You want to include all layers EXCEPT the bacon weave in your roll. Try and keep the sausage as tight as possible and be sure to release any air pockets that may have formed. Once the sausage is fully rolled up, pinch together the seams and ends to seal all of the bacon goodness inside.
7
At this point we can start to see the final shape of our Bacon Explosion, but we’re missing one key item. To complete the construction process, roll the sausage forward completely wrapping it in the bacon weave. Make sure it sits with the seam facing downward to help keep it all sealed up.
8
Sprinkle some barbecue seasoning on the outside of the bacon weave, and now it is ready for the smoker. Cook your Bacon Explosion at 225°F in a constant cloud of hickory smoke until your meat thermometer gives an internal temperature reading of 165°F Normally this will take about 1 hour for each inch of thickness, but that could vary depending on how well you maintain your fire and also how many times you open the smoker to take a peek. BBQ Addict recommends 2.5 hours, for a roll 2.5 inches in diameter.
9
Now that the Bacon Explosion is fully cooked, you need to add some finishing flavors. Remember that barbecue sauce you used for inner flavor? You'll be using that same sauce to glaze the cooked bacon weave. Using a basting brush, coat the entire surface with a thin layer of sauce. Sweet sauces are loaded with sugars, so they’ll give your fatty a nice glossy finish. Spicy and vinegar based sauces don’t contain as much, so they won’t set up as well. If you’re dead set on using those sauces, just cut them with a bit of honey and you’ll get the same effect.
10
Slice the Bacon Explosion into quarter to half inch rounds to serve. If your roll was good and tight, you should now see a nice bacon pinwheel pattern throughout the sausage.
11
Obviously pork is best served by itself, but if you feel the need to make this meat monster into a sandwich, BBQ Addict recommends placing a couple Bacon Explosion slices on a warm Pillsbury’s Grands Biscuit.

Spinach Dip

16 oz of mayo
16 oz of sour cream
2 10 oz bags of frozen spinach (defrosted and drained)
2 yellow onions (chopped fine)
2 cans of water chestnuts (chopped)
2 packages of dry vegetable soup mix

Mix all ingredients together and chill for a least an hour in the fridge. I like to serve it in a rye bread bowl.

I got the recipe from my mom but I'm pretty sure that she got it from the back of a Knorr's vegetable soup mix package back in the 70's

Greek Inspired Grilled Shrimp:

1 pound medium shrimp, peeled & deveined
juice and zest of one lemon
3 tablespoons of fresh oregano chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped small
2 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper

bamboo skewers (soaked in water 10 minutes prior to grilling)

Mix in a small bowl juice & zest of lemon, oregano, garlic, olive oil and salt & pepper.

Skewer shrimp on skewers (I usually do 5 shrimp per skewer). Put on a baking dish and pour mixture over. Turn skewers to coat, and allow to marinate while you start your fire (I prefer charcoal, but gas is fine).

Once grill is up to temperature, grill approx 3 minutes per side, basting once with leftover lemon mixture in between flips, until shrimp are pink.

http://www.heathersdish.com/1/cilantro-lime-chickpea-salad/

Love this - perfect summer side. I go easy on the dijon, i think 2tbsp is too much! I also add a couple of hot cherry peppers to the blend for a little bite.

External Image


2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 loosely packed cups fresh spinach
1/2 onion, chopped small
juice from 4 limes
1 bunch of cilantro (about loosely packed cup)
3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or grated on a microplane
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 cup olive oil

Chop the spinach very finely (feel free to use a food processor and pulse 3-4 times). Add the chickpeas, onion, and spinach to a large bowl. In the same food processor add the lime juice, cilantro, sugar, mustard, garlic, chili powder, and olive oil. Process til it comes together into a dressing, about 30-45 seconds. Pour over the chickpea mixture and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let sit for about 10 minutes on the counter or overnight in the fridge to let the flavors marry. Enjoy!

Nothing says Summer more to me than Gazpacho Soup. Here is my favorite recipe for Watermelon Gazpacho Soup:

Ingredients:
8 cups finely diced seedless watermelon,
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons shallots
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation:
Mix watermelon, cucumber, bell pepper, basil, parsley, vinegar, shallots, oil and salt in a large bowl. Puree 3 cups of the mixture in a blender or food processor to the desired smoothness; transfer to another large bowl. Puree another 3 cups and add to the bowl. Stir in the remaining diced mixture.

You can serve room temperature or chilled. I prefer chilled and even add a little tabasco. This recipe is healthy and the best part is most of the ingredients I pick out of my Summer garden.Chat Icon

I am obsessed with Zucchini Carpaccio!

Ingredients
2 medium zucchini
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese, for shaving

Directions
Using a sharp vegetable peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise, creating very thin slices. Discard the first slice that is very dark green skin. Arrange the slices on a platter, overlapping the slices.


In a small jar or bowl, place the lemon juice, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Cover and shake well or whisk to blend. Pour the mixture evenly over the zucchini slices. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes, or for up to an hour.


Use vegetable peeler to shave thin slices of Parmesan over the zucchini, and serve.

I'll make it for dinner (and add either fresh mozzarella or burratta too!)

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri

External Image

Chimichurri Ingredients
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup sherry wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced shallots
3/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 (1 3/4 to 2-pound) skirt steak

Directions
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the olive oil, sherry vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, basil, oregano, garlic and shallots. Pulse until well blended but do not puree. Add 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the crushed red pepper. Remove 1 cup of the chimichurri sauce from the processor and transfer to a non-reactive bowl, cover with plastic wrap and reserve at room temperature for up to 6 hours. (If cooking steak another day, refrigerate sauce and return to room temperature before serving.)

Season the steak with 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt on each side, as well as 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper per side and place in a large, resealable plastic bag. Add the remaining chimichurri sauce from the processor. Seal bag and refrigerate the steak for at least 2 and up to 4 hours.

Preheat a grill to medium heat.

Once the steak has finished marinating, remove it from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Brush the excess chimichurri sauce off the steak and set the steak over the hot grill. Cook for 6 minutes on the first side. Rotate the steak 45 degrees, and cook another 6 minutes. Turn the steak over and continue to cook until the steak is done, about 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Once cooked, lay the steak on a clean cutting board, and allow it to rest for 5 to 7 minutes before slicing across the grain into 2-inch wide strips. Serve with crusty bread and the reserved chimichurri sauce.

Pizza on the BBQ- Nonna

So simlpe and sooo good!!!

We make our own dough but you can buy it from the pizzeria for 2 bucks.

1. roll out your dough

2. Lightly oil dough

3. Place dough on grill. Cover. Cook until top of dough is raised and puffed and bottom is just crisp, about 3 minutes

4. Flip the dough over so the crisped side is up

5. Add your sauce, cheese and toppings
We do fresh tomatoes, basil, a little sauce and little cheese. salt/pepper/garlic

6. Cover

7. Grill until cheese is melted and dough is browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Check the underside often to see that it is not burning

8. Remove and serve

It's so delish and so easy to make. Make a nice romaine salad as a side dish and dinner is done!
