Here’s another great eggs and bacon dish that’s not only for weekdays but would also be great for a weekend brunch party.

Bacon and Eggs Pie

Ingredients

1 (11 ounce) package piecrust mix
1 (6 ounce) package Canadian-style bacon
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

Prepare the piecrust mix for a one crust pie as directed on the package. Divide the pastry into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into a 6 inch circle on a well floured, cloth covered board with a floured, cloth covered rolling pin.

Fit the pastry over circles on the backs of large muffin cups (3 x 1 1/2 inch), or 6 ounce custard cups. Make pleats so the pastry will fit closely. If using individual pie pans or tart pans cut the circles 1 inch larger than the inverted pans and fit into pans. Prick the surface. Place the tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and carefully remove from the cups. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

Place 2 Canadian bacon slices in the bottom of each pastry cup. Sprinkle cheese over the meat making a slight well in the centers. Break 1 egg into each. Add 1 tablespoon milk into each tart. Sprinkle with nutmeg and pepper. Place the tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until eggs are soft cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Great stuff. Serve it to your mother-in-law and watch her turn green with envy.

Delicious pork tenderloin done in an Asian fashion. 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Asian
Calories: 290 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Asian chile paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 2 pound fat-trimmed pork tenderloin
Instructions
  1. Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Whisk in the brown sugar, green onions, garlic, chile paste and the pepper.
  2. Place the pork tenderloin in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over it. Turn the tenderloin several times so the marinade coats it well. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or more. Overnight is better.
  3. Alternately you can place the pork tenderloin in 1 gallon sized Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Squeeze as much air as you can from the bag and zip it up. Place the bag in the refrigerator and just turn the bag over every two or three hours.
  4. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer the pork tenderloin along with the marinade into an aluminum foil-lined baking pan.
  5. Roast in a preheated oven 80 to 90 minutes. Remove the roast from the oven and cover it with a foil tent for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. While the tenderloin roast is resting pour the marinade into a saucepan and reduce to sauce consistency. You can also make additions to the sauce like diced button mushrooms. The sauce can be thickened with a flour or cornstarch slurry instead of reducing.
  7. Slice the tenderloin and pour the sauce over the slices to serve. With plain cooked rice and steamed bok choy as side dishes your family will think they're enjoying Chinese takeout instead of your own Asian Pork Tenderloin Recipe.

Apricot, steak sauce and ketchup makes up the glaze for this delicious family entree! 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6
Calories: 275 kcal
Ingredients
  • 6 pork loin or rib shops each 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup steak sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Season the pork chops with the kosher salt and black pepper and set them aside.
  2. Whisk together the apricot jam, ketchup and steak sauce. Add the minced garlic and dry pepper. Heat the mixture in a small saucepan, and let it simmer about 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the broiler to high. Broil the pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side, then baste with some of the glaze. Continue to broil the pork chops, basting every 5 minutes, until the chops are cooked through.
  4. Remove the glazed pork chops to a heated platter and serve hot. Serve the remaining apricot glaze as a sauce on the side.

On Your Own – To make the glaze a little tangier, use 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup Dijon mustard and 1/4 cup steak sauce to blend into the apricot jam.

If the glaze has gotten too thick by the time you serve the pork chops, thin it out with a little apple juice or warm water.

Good To Know – It’s o.k. to substitute another jam or preserves for the apricot jam, just try to choose one without seeds or big chunks of fruit.

You could also try blackberry jelly, which melts much easier and blends better with the other ingredients.
