Recipes off the box!

I am sure you are still anxious to get more recipes and tips from my crazy Better Homes & Gardens meets Pee-Wee's Playhouse party. I already gave you Pee-wee's refrigerator. Here is the 1968 housewife section: three quick recipes which are full of fun and flavor.

**As a quick disclaimer, I am sort of embarrassed by some of my recipes. I can guarantee they are all tasty, but as some of you out there don't know much about my cooking style yet, I just want to assure you, Velveeta and Jimmy Dean sausages aren't daily ingredients I use in my food. However, if you want to cook like a 60's housewife, they are a must!

Jimmy Dean Sausage Cocktail toasts.

To create these divine munchables just brown together
  • 1lb of Ground Beef (the best organic free range drug free Kobe beef - or just the cheapest you can find)
  • 1lb highest quality JIMMY DEAN pork sausage
drain grease

Mix in 1 lb VELVEETA!!
  • 1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder.

Heat until melted
Spoon over cocktail rye bread

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min!

(They didn't even pay me for all that gratuitous product placement. Am I a sucker or what?)

Cocktail Wieners!!
  • 1lb "smokies" cocktail wieners
  • 1lb bacon cut in thirds
Wrap smokies in bacon and pierce with tooth pics

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes
When top looks cooked, flip over and cook other side for 20 - 30 more minutes

Place in saucepan with:
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. ketchup
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 2 Tablespoons of whiskey
Simmer 15 minutes. Serve. If you have a slow cooker you can put them out in this on low to keep them warm.

**note on above: I increase ketchup to 2/3 cup and obviously I add way more whiskey. Come on!

All right everybody, run to the store, purchase some Velveeta and Jimmy Dean Sausage and let's get partyin!
