Ultimate Hangover Breakfast Burrito

Ultimate Hangover Breakfast Burrito We’ve all been there… The morning after an epic night out filled with a pounding heading, aversion to light and a pain in your stomach that could or could not be helped by food.

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

I'm about to blow your minds with some serious bacon and cheese action. You may think that it couldn't get any better than the fried mac n cheese we busted out earlier this week, but we just outdid ourselves. Yet again.

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Pull apart breads are my new favorite recipe to whip out for a party, especially a huge spread like the one I'm hosting on Super Bowl Sunday in a couple weeks. This bread is so ridiculously simple, there's really no excuse for you to NOT make it. In about 5 minutes of prep time, you'll be a hot 15 minutes away from a cheesy, bacon-packed mess of a bread that everyone will gladly get messy for. Just take a gander at that cheese....

Ok one more... All that cheese and bacon stuffed into the cracks of that warm, crusty bread...

Enough torture, I promise. But seriously, can't you just taste the deliciousness that this cheesy, bacon bite must pack? Are you hungry yet?

Using a serrated knife, cut the bread on a diagonal angle into 1-inch diamond shapes, making sure you don’t slice all the way through the loaf of bread.

Gently open up the cracks with your fingers. Drizzle each with a tsp of the butter mixture and a pinch of the cheese and bacon mix.

Wrap the loaf of bread in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes, until the cheese has mostly melted. Remove from the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, directly on the rack. Serve immediately.

With the playoffs all wrapped up, that only means one thing. Time to get ready for the SUPER BOWL! Fried Bacon Mac n Cheese Bites

Since this year is the big number 50 for the Super Bowl, I'm going ALL out with the Super Bowl spread. Instead of the typical chips and dip, I'm opting to bring in the big guns with these golden, delicious fried bacon mac n cheese bites. They are crispy on the outside and warm, cheesy and bacon-packed on the inside.

Fried Bacon Mac n Cheese Bites

The best part of this recipe is that you can simply use a few cups of leftover mac and cheese to make it! No need to let that mac and cheese sit lonely in the fridge anymore, you now have the best ever round two recipe for it that comes together in minutes.

No one will be able to step themselves at one, so be sure to triple this recipe if you've got a lot of hungry people headed your way on game day.

INSTRUCTIONS: In a medium bowl, mix together the mac and cheese and diced bacon. Form small balls (either one or two bite depending on your preference) out of the mac and cheese mixture and add them to a flat baking sheet. Once you have formed the balls (make sure you press them together tightly), cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 to 3 hours.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs. In another small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and flour; season the coating with salt, pepper and cayenne. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat 3 to 4 inches of canola oil over medium-high heat. Working in small batches of 3 to 4, dredge the mac and cheese balls in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture. Add the the hot oil and fry until golden brown and hot in the center, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and repeat until all the mac and cheese balls are fried. Serve immediately.

Pumpkin spice everything season is here! I don't know about you, but sometimes I need a break from all the meats and BBQ to satisfy that sweet tooth of mine. These little cakes are perfect for fall.

I love making these cakes in the larger ramekins because they end up looking like giant frosted cupcakes! You can also make them in smaller ramekins if you don't want to be SO gluttonous. But who really wants to do that, right?

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

When beer, bacon and cheese come together, it's a beautiful thing. It's an even more beautiful thing when it's all baked up into a gooey dip like the one you see right here. I don't know of anyone who could resist diving into this dish headfirst. I mean, it's bacon and cheese so it's a given that everyone will be obsessed with it.

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

But it's the beer that really makes this dip insanely delicious. The hoppy IPA gives the dish a little bite of beer flavor that pairs so perfectly with all that crispy bacon and massive amounts of cheese. The result is a dip that needs to be busted out on the regular, especially during tailgating season. As you gather around the TV to watch your favorite team bring home the win, this cheesy mess of goodness will make the win that much sweeter (or cheesier....). Beer and beer always go hand in hand. Don't try to argue with that logic, because you'll lose.

Load up those chips and get to eating, piggy fans!
