Friday Foodday

Happy Friday! Here are my favorite recipes this week.

Bourbon Lemonade Cocktail
  • Handful fresh mint leaves
  • Ice 
  • 4 cups prepared lemonade
  • 3 cups club soda
  • 4-6 shots (2 oz each) Bourbon
  1. In a large pitcher, muddle the fresh mint leaves well. Fill pitcher halfway with ice.
  2. Add lemonade, club soda and bourbon. Stir well.

Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

  • 4 bell peppers, any color
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8 ounces canned corned beef hash
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash the bell peppers and slice the tops off. Remove the stem and seeds from the inside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, water, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  4. Add the ground beef to a large skillet and brown over medium heat. Drain the fat and return to the skillet. Add the corned beef hash to the pan and cook until heated through.
  5. Add the sloppy joe sauce to the pan with the beef and stir to coat.
  6. Spoon the meat mixture into each of the 4 bell peppers and place in an 8x8 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove the foil and top each pepper with the cheese. Continue baking for another 10 minutes, uncovered, or until the peppers have softened to your liking.
  8. Serve immediately.

Apple, Cheddar, and Bacon Fritters with Caramel Sauce
  • 1 pound apples, peeled, cored and shredded
  • 1 cup aged cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
  • 1/4 cup flour (or rice flour)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for shallow frying

  1. Squeeze as much excess liquid from the shredded apples as you can in a tea towel. (Reserve and enjoy the fresh apple juice!)
  2. Mix everything except the frying oil.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add heaping tablespoons of the apple mixture, forming patties and fry until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes per side, before setting aside on paper towels to drain.
