Corn Chowder with Bacon
Pureeing some of the corn-and-potato mixture in a blender gives this soup rich creaminess without much cream. Red bell pepper imparts a beautiful golden hue to the chowder (and is a great source of vitamin C). For a final touch, a little bacon crumbled over this easy corn chowder recipe goes a long way…………

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tacos
Breakfast tacos are quintessential morning eats in Austin, but with this breakfast taco recipe you can enjoy them wherever you are. The smoky, earthy ancho chile salsa is what makes these extra-special, though for a quicker weekday breakfast, feel free to swap in your favorite store-bought salsa……………….

Slow-Cooked Baked Beans with Bacon
It’s easy to purchase baked beans in a can, but making your own in the slow cooker results in a rich and deliciously flavored side dish that you’ll feel better about serving to guests…………..

Today’s Menu: Bison Steak, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast Breakfast

 

To start my Morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and did some light cleaning around the house. Had thunderstorms and a big change in the temperature, only a high of 79 degrees. Felt like having a Breakfast again for Dinner tonight. I prepared a Bison Fillet, one Egg Sunny Side Up, Hash Browns, and Toast!

 

 

 

 

For my Steak I fried up a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Fillet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. I it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the the Steak and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day! Again I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. I fried these for 14 minutes. When done I sprinkled some Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped them with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I had one hearty Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SayersBrook Bison Petite Filet Mignon (1 lb)

Cut from bison tenderloins, these are, by far, the most tender of buffalo steaks. This is a boneless, premium cut sure to give you the ultimate dining experience. Each steak is hand-trimmed so that virtually all of the surface fat is removed. Season them to taste and prepare them medium rare to appreciate the best that nature has to offer. You deserve it! You’re getting a steak that is 99% fat free, they won’t shrink as much as beef so you’re getting more edible steak for your money. 4 (4 oz) Petite Filets.
The most tender of buffalo steaks. 4 (4 oz) Petite Filets.

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Put a lid on it………….

I love having my Eggs Sunny Side Up. For perfect Eggs every time always put a lid over your skillet. It will get the yolk and egg whites done and give the yolk a nice light glaze on top it. Enjoy
