Quiche Lorraine is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Easy to make, and filled with bacon, eggs, and cheese... you're gonna love it!

Quiche Lorraine is a versatile, easy and delicious dish, which can be enjoyed as a main dish or as a side dish! I’ve always wondered “just WHO is Lorraine, and why is HER quiche so famous?” So I did a little bit of research to find out the history of this yummy dish.

Turns out, LORRAINE isn’t a woman (who knew?). It is a region in France that borders Germany. The story goes that in medieval times, this region (originally called Lothringen) was under German rule, and a recipe for a savory cake was created there. The French word “quiche” is derived from the German word “kuchen”, which basically means “cake”. Many years later, after the region had returned to French rule, the “Quiche Lorraine” recipe was “enhanced”, and became the name of this beloved dish.

There are multitudes of quiche recipes with a variety of ingredients created throughout the world, but the Quiche Lorraine remains the most famous and loved. Apparently chef Julia Child is often credited for exposing  America to this classic dish, which typically includes pie crust, eggs, bacon (or other meat), and cheese.

We love this dish because it is so EASY to make, and tastes absolutely wonderful! This is my “go-to” favorite quiche, and I’ve been making it for over 40 years! Here’s how to make it:

A Word About The Pie Crust

For this recipe you can use a homemade 9″ pie shell OR a purchased deep-dish pie shell. Either type will work just fine for this recipe. Of course, a purchased pie shell is quicker and more convenient, but I like to use my Mom’s recipe for homemade pie crusts. 

Arrange the prepared pie dough in a 9″ pie pan, and crimp the edges to form a crust. Use the tines of a fork to prick the bottom and sides of the crust (as shown below).

A 9-inch unbaked deep dish pie shell is pricked with a fork before adding ingredients.

Making The Quiche Lorraine Is EASY!

Preheat your oven to 425°F. Okay… putting this quiche together is EASY!  Place the cooked, crumbled crispy bacon on the bottom of the pie shell, spreading to cover. Add the chopped onions, and then top it off with grated Swiss cheese.

Cooked, crumbled bacon and chopped onions are added to pie shell.Grated Swiss cheese is added to the quiche ingredients in pie shell.

In a medium bowl, whisk together heavy whipping cream, eggs, sugar, salt and cayenne pepper until fully combined. Pour this liquid over the ingredients in the pie shell. The pie shell will be very full!

Carefully give the ingredients a tiny bit of a stir, bringing some of the bacon, onion and cheese up to the surface. You don’t have to mix it up real well, just enough to kind of “marry” the ingredients. Now you’re ready to bake your Quiche Lorraine!

Eggs, whipping cream and spices are whisked for the Quiche Lorraine.Egg and cream mixture is poured over bacon, onion and cheese in pie shell.

Baking The Quiche Loraine

Carefully place the Quiche Lorraine on the middle rack of a preheated 425°F. oven. Be careful to not slosh it around, because it will be full (just a helpful tip!). Bake at 425°F. for 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 300°F. and continue cooking it for 30 more minutes.

You’ll know it’s done when the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer the quiche to a wire rack to cool down a bit (still in pie pan). You’ll see how puffy the quiche is, from the hot air inside. The top of the quiche will “flatten” as the air dissipates inside while it cools. That is what it is supposed to do!

Ready To Eat!

Once the top of the quiche has flattened and it has cooled for 10-15 minutes, it’s ready to slice and enjoy! The Quiche Lorraine can be eaten hot, warm, cold, OR at room temperature, whichever way you prefer.

Slice the quiche into 8 portions (or 6 if you want larger pieces!), serve, and enjoy! It’s filled with GREAT flavor, lots of cheese, and yummy bacon. We love this quiche, and have it for breakfast, lunch OR dinner! Cover and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. You can easily microwave leftover pieces of quiche to bring them back to the temperature you prefer!

I really hope you will try this quiche, because it is sooo good! It is by far the most famous of all quiches, and is a great dish to have around, for a delicious dinner, lunch or breakfast! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day. Come back soon!

You're gonna love these absolutely tender, delicious, Italian-seasoned Parmesan Garlic Potato Wedges. Easy to make, and baked to perfection.

Anyone out there love potatoes? We sure do! Whether they’re mashed, baked, grilled or fried, we love the humble potato. Today I want to share with you a wonderful way to season and bake potato wedges. I found the recipe online several years ago, and they’re delicious! These potatoes will compliment a variety of meat dishes, so they’re a wonderful choice for a simple, flavorful side dish.

The recipe is for Parmesan garlic potato wedges (using russet potatoes), and they are so EASY to prepare. This recipe will make enough for about 4-6 servings. The potato wedges are well-seasoned, and then they’re baked until soft and tender, and let me tell you… they taste GREAT! Here’s how to make them:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Potatoes For Baking

The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 375°F, and grease or spray a 9″x13″ baking sheet (set aside). Okay… now let’s get these potatoes ready for baking! Scrub the outside of the potatoes clean, but leave the peel on. Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 3 wedges. Try to keep the wedges about the same thickness in size, so they will all cook consistently in the same amount of time.

Place the potato wedges in a large bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Toss them to coat with oil, then add grated Parmesan cheese, and toss again to coat the potatoes with cheese.

Make The Seasoning Mix

Measure garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt into a small bowl, then stir to combine. NOTE: If you want to make your own Italian seasoning, here is how I make mine. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over the potato wedges, tossing again to cover the potatoes with the spices.

Time To Bake The Parmesan Garlic Potato Wedges

Hooray- now it’s time to bake these tasty spuds! Remember that greased baking sheet you set aside earlier? Yep… grab it, and place the seasoned potato wedges (peel side down) on it, in a single layer.

Bake the potatoes at 375°F. for between 25-35 minutes. Check for doneness at the 25 minute mark. They are ready when they can easily be pierced with a fork or knife (very tender), and are light golden brown in color.

Time To Eat!

Once they have finished baking, they are ready to eat. Place the Parmesan Garlic Potato Wedges on a serving platter, and sprinkle them with chopped parsley or cilantro. You can also serve them with a dipping sauce if you want, but that is completely optional. We like them just the way they are, to be honest!

The potato wedges are so delicious… the Parmesan cheese and other spices give each bite incredible flavor! I’m confident you’ll enjoy this easy side dish that pairs especially well with chicken, beef or pork. YUM!

Blueberry Cranberry Crisp, with sweet blueberries, tangy cranberries and a buttery streusel topping is an easy to make, delicious dessert!

Fruit cobblers and crisps are a delicious way to enjoy dessert (and fruit)! They can be enjoyed year round thanks in part to many flash-frozen fruits that are available in grocery stores. This recipe for blueberry cranberry crisp can be made with either fresh or frozen fruit, which is great news!

I always try to keep a bag of blueberries and a bag of cranberries in my freezer, so they can be easily used in any recipe that calls for them, year-round. Today I want to share this super simple dessert recipe a fruit crisp that I’m positive you’re gonna enjoy! It’s delicious, and hardly takes any time or effort at all to make. Here’s how to make it:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Fruit Filling

Before beginning, preheat your oven to 350°F, and lightly spray or grease an 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Now it’s time to make the fruit filling for the crisp! It’s EASY!

Place blueberries, cranberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice and a dash of salt in a large mixing bowl. Gently stir these ingredients until fully combined. NOTE: You can use frozen OR fresh blueberries and cranberries. If using frozen berries, just toss ’em frozen into the bowl, cause they will thaw quickly! Once combined, pour them into the lightly greased or sprayed baking dish. See how easy that was?

Make The Streusel Topping

Now it’s time to make the buttery streusel topping for the fruit crisp. Place flour, brown sugar, COLD butter chunks, ground cinnamon and old fashioned rolled oats in a medium sized bowl.

Use a pastry blender (shown in photo), two forks, or your fingers to cut the cold butter into the crumb topping. Continue until the butter is about the size of peas, and is fully incorporated into a crumbly mixture. NOTE: You can also do this step in a food processor, if desired. Pulse off and on until the mixture is crumbly.

Time To Bake The Blueberry Cranberry Crisp

Evenly spread the crumb streusel topping over the surface of the fruit filling. Place the blueberry cranberry crisp on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake at 350°F. for approximately 32-35 minutes.

When done, the fruit juices will be bubbly around the edges, and the top of the crisp will be golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven, and transfer it to a wire rack. Let the blueberry cranberry crisp cool down for approximately 5 minutes before serving.

Grab a spoon, dig in, and enjoy this simple, tasty dessert. The blueberries are nice and sweet, and the cranberries are sweet, but with a bit of tang to balance it out.

Learn how to make an Egg In A Basket! Toasted, buttery sourdough bread cradles a fried egg in the middle, in this easy to make breakfast!

Have you ever heard of making an egg in a basket? It can also be called egg in a nest, and is a fun way to serve an egg and toast in a cute little “package”. Several well-known family restaurants have served this dish over the years (including Cracker Barrel). 

Today I want to show you how to make an egg in a basket for yourself or someone you love. I found the recipe in one of my cookbooks many years ago. Typically I use a thick slice of sourdough bread because it holds up really well, but truthfully, you can use whatever bread you enjoy.

I finally took some photos of the cooking process to share here on the ol’ blog. The “recipe” can be easily doubled, tripled or quadrupled for as many servings as you want! Here’s how to make this fun breakfast dish:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

How To Make An Egg In A Basket

Butter one side of a slice of sourdough bread, (reserving a little bit of butter to add to your skillet later). Use a 2¼” biscuit cutter OR a pint jar lid or jar to carefully cut out a circle from the middle of the buttered side of the bread. Save both pieces of buttered bread.

A jar or jar lid is used to cut out a circle in buttered bread.A hole has been made in the slice of sourdough bread.

Heat a skillet (or a griddle) on medium heat. Place the slice of bread (and the round cut out) BUTTER SIDE DOWN in the hot skillet. Cook them for about 2 minutes, or just until the bottom side begins to turn golden brown. Place the reserved tiny bit of butter into the hole and let it melt.

Buttered bread and circle are cooked butter side down until browned.

Cooking The Egg In A Basket

As soon as the butter has melted, carefully crack an egg into the hole, being careful to not break the yolk. Lightly salt and pepper the egg.

Cook the egg in a basket for 1-2 more minutes (I usually do 2 minutes), until the egg begins to set and solidify in the bread. Carefully turn the bread and egg over to the other side, (trying to not splash egg white all over the place) or break the yolk. Just be gentle and patient and you can do it! Flip over the little toasted bread round at the same time, too!

Butter is added to hole in bread, then an egg is cracked into hole.After cooking for a couple minutes, the egg in a basket is flipped to other side.

Continue to cook the egg for another minute, or until it reaches your desired “done-ness”. Transfer the egg in a basket to a serving plate, and garnish with chopped parsley or chopped chives, if desired.

Serve the little toasted round of bread on the side, and enjoy this scrumptious breakfast with some fresh fruit, and sausage or bacon. YUM!

The finished egg in a basket is sprinkled with parsley and served.

I hope you enjoy this breakfast dish. It’s a cute and different way to serve up a traditional egg and toast breakfast! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day. Come back soon!

We tend to eat more chicken than any other meat in our house. How about you? There are so many great chicken recipes out there, and I never get tired of finding new ones to try. Especially if they taste great, like these garlic lime chicken thighs, for example.

I discovered the original recipe in an old cookbook called “The Best Of Cooking Light”. It features lighter calorie meals, so I thought I would give it a try, and my husband and I really enjoyed this dish. It is easy to make, the chicken has lots of flavor, and the meat is very juicy after baking. I hope you’ll consider trying it… it’s GOOD! Here’s how to make it, step by step:

The spice mixture for the chicken is very EASY to make. In a small bowl, combine minced garlic, ground cumin, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Add 1 Tablespoon (HALF of the total amount) of fresh squeezed lime juice, and stir these ingredients, until fully combined.

Rub the spice mixture onto four (6 ounces each), bone-in, skinless chicken thighs. Make sure to add the spices to all sides of the chicken, using all of the mix. 

Garlic, cumin, oregano, lime juice, salt & pepper are mixed in bowl.Four bone-in, skinless chicken thighs are coated with spice mix before cooking.

Place the four chicken thighs into an oven-proof skillet (cast-iron works GREAT!). In a separate bowl, mix together chicken broth, the remaining Tablespoon of lime juice, and white vinegar. Pour this liquid over the chicken thighs in the skillet.

Bring the liquid to a boil on medium heat on the stovetop, then remove the skillet from the heat. Cover the skillet with a lid, or with aluminum foil.

Chicken broth, lime juice and vinegar are brought to a boil in skillet with chicken.

Bake The Garlic Lime Chicken Thighs

Now it’s time to bake the garlic lime chicken thighs. Place the covered skillet on the middle rack in a preheated 350°F. oven. Bake the chicken for 30 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 180°F.

When done, remove from oven, and transfer the chicken thighs out of the skillet to a platter (and cover, to keep them warm). Keep the accumulated juices in the skillet.

Garlic lime chicken thighs are baked in a covered skillet in oven.When done, the chicken will be transferred out of the skillet while sauce cooks.

Cook the juices remaining in the skillet on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the liquid reduces to about 1/4 cup. The sauce will be used to spoon over the pieces of chicken when serving. Now you’re ready to enjoy this delicious main course!

The juices are cooked until liquid reduces to about 1/4 cup in the skillet.

Serve The Garlic Lime Chicken Thighs

Place the chicken thighs onto a serving platter (or individual plates). Each serving is 2 pieces, so this recipe will serve two people (or more, if you only want to eat ONE piece).

Spoon some of the reduced sauce in the skillet over each piece. Garnish each piece of chicken with chopped cilantro, and a thin slice of lime.  We enjoyed the garlic lime chicken thighs served with green beans and delicious potato wedges on the side.

Lime slices and chopped cilantro garnish the garlic lime chicken thighs for serving.Wedge potatoes and green beans are served with two garlic lime chicken thighs.

Asian Cucumber Salad

Asian Cucumber Salad is an easy side dish, with sliced cucumbers & green onions marinated in an Asian-inspired sauce, served cold and crispy!
Asian Cucumber Salad is an easy side dish, with sliced cucumbers & green onions marinated in an Asian-inspired sauce, served cold and crispy!

I grew up eating marinated cucumbers, because my Mom made them quite often, especially in the hot summertime. I’ve shared her basic recipe, called “Mom’s Marinated Cucumbers” here on the blog previously, and hope you will check it out, if interested. They’re really good!

This recipe I am sharing today has a slight Asian twist to it, due in part to it’s use of rice vinegar and soy sauce. Asian Cucumber Salad is simple to make in about 10 minutes, but you will have to allow time for the cucumbers to marinate for the best flavor, so plan ahead! I like to make up a batch in the morning to be able to enjoy later in the day! Let me show you how easy this salad is to make:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Cucumbers

Trim the ends off the cucumbers, and then use a vegetable peeler or knife to remove all the peel. Once peeled, thinly slice (about 1/4″) all of the cucumbers. You can use regular cucumbers OR English cucumbers for this salad.

NOTE: I used one really large English cucumber for these photos, but you can also use 2 large or 3 medium sized regular cucumbers, if desired. There is enough marinade for either way you choose to fix this dish.

The cucumbers are washed, ends trimmed off, then peeled.Cucumbers are peeled, and cut into thin slices for Asian Cucumber Salad.

Now it’s time to get the cucumbers ready for marinating! Place the cucumber slices and chopped green onions (scallions) into a container with a lid or a large re-sealable plastic bag. You’re going to use all the white parts of each green onion, and SOME of the green tops, okay?

NOTE: I prefer to use a large dish with a lid when marinating these, because sometimes the plastic re-sealable bags can leak (and that’s not good).

Marinate The Cucumbers

It’s EASY to make the Asian-inspired marinade for the cucumbers. Measure rice vinegar, water, reduced sodium soy sauce, granulated sugar, salt and black pepper into a small bowl. Whisk or stir well, until these ingredients are fully combined. Pour the marinade over the sliced cucumbers and green onions, and gently stir until the cucumbers are coated on all sides.

Place a tight fitting lid on the dish (or seal the bag), and place the dish into your refrigerator. For BEST flavor, let the cucumbers marinate in the sauce for several hours to saturate them with flavor (or even overnight, if you want). Stir occasionally, to ensure the cucumbers remain coated with marinade.

Asian sauce is mixed then poured over cucumber mix to marinate.

Serve The Asian Cucumber Salad

After they’ve marinated for several hours (or overnight), it’s time to serve the Asian Cucumber Salad. Remove the cucumbers with a slotted spoon, letting the marinade drain off the cucumbers before serving.

Transfer the drained Asian Cucumber Salad to a serving dish, and lightly sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve the salad – the cucumbers will be crisp, cold, and full of flavor! They’re so good, I find myself grabbing one or two slices out of the fridge for a quick, tasty snack any time of the day.

You can also use the marinated, drained cucumbers on your favorite mixed green salad, for a crunchy, tasty pop of flavor! They’re delicious when used in this way, as well.

I hope you have the chance to try this simple recipe, and am positive you will enjoy it. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today. Have a great day, and come back soon, okay?

Mom’s Southern Hush Puppies

Mom's Southern Hush Puppies are a simple, delicious side dish (fried till crispy, served hot w/ butter) to accompany a favorite soup or chili.

I grew up eating hush puppies. My East Texas born and raised Mom made them every couple of weeks for our family, and they were always served with a big pot of spinach and turnip greens. As a kid, I never quite developed a love for the “greens” part of that meal, however… give me a few hot, crispy hush puppies with soft butter on them! Now THAT spoke to me… ha ha!

Growing up our family didn’t have a lot of money, so that simple meal could be made quite inexpensively, yet fill all five of us up! I have wonderful memories of watching my Mom lovingly fry a batch on our old kitchen stove. She made them like her Mom made them. Hush Puppies are a classic Southern staple dish, and are made with fairly common ingredients. There are a LOT of ways to make them. There’s also a LOT of history and myths detailing the origin and legends about them, which you can read here. It’s pretty interesting.

Some hush puppy recipes include corn, jalapeños, or green onions, and fried in small balls until really brown. My Mom’s recipe is for basic hush puppies, with minced brown onion, and are a little more disc-shaped. They are fried until crispy and lightly browned on the outside, but amazingly soft on the inside. They are so delicious and easy to make. Here’s how:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe At The Bottom Of The Page

What Ingredients Do I Need To Make Hush Puppies?

Seven ingredients (plus vegetable oil for frying) are what you will need to make a dozen hush puppies. The ingredients used are cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, minced onion, an egg, and milk.

I try to always keep  a box of cornmeal in our pantry. If you’ve never bought it before, it can usually be found on the flour aisle in most grocery stores. Very basic ingredients, right?

Hush puppy ingredients are cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, onion, egg and milk.

How To Make The Hush Puppy Batter

Sift the dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl, and then add the minced onion. In a separate dish, lightly beat the egg with a fork, and then add the milk, and stir to combine. Pour the egg/milk mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients.

Dry ingredients are sifted into bowl, and minced onion is added.Milk and egg mixture is added to dry ingredients in bowl.

Stir the ingredients until fully blended together. The batter for the hush puppies will be fairly thick. Once that’s done, you are ready to fry some of Mom’s Southern Hush Puppies!

Frying Mom’s Southern Hush Puppies

Heat enough oil in a large skillet to cover the bottom with 1/2 inch of oil. Heat the oil on medium heat until it is REALLY hot, but not smoking. I like to use a cast iron skillet when I make hush puppies, but it isn’t necessary. Plan on a skillet large enough to cook about 6 at a time.

Drop by generous Tablespoons into the hot oil, leaving space between each hush puppy. The batter should sizzle when it hits the oil. Do not move them once they hit the hot oil. Fry them until you see the bottom edges turning brown all the way around. This usually takes 2-3 minutes. You may need to fry the hush puppies in a couple of batches. I fry about six at a time, so I don’t overcrowd the skillet.

Use a spatula and a large spoon to CAREFULLY turn the hush puppies to the other side. Lightly press down on the hush puppy with a spatula to flatten the top slightly. Be careful… that oil is very hot. Continue cooking until the hush puppies are golden brown on the bottom again. Depending on how brown you want them, you can cook the second side longer, if desired.

When Mom’s Southern hush puppies finish frying and are browned and crispy on all sides, remove them from the skillet and place on several thicknesses of paper towels. The paper towels will quickly absorb any leftover grease.

Paper towels absorb oil from the fried hush puppies before serving.

Serve Mom’s Southern Hush Puppies HOT!

Serve Mom’s Southern hush puppies hot! Slice them open, spread them with softened butter, and dig in! The finished hush puppies should be really crispy on the outside, and delicious and soft on the inside.

They are such a simple side dish… if you enjoy the flavor of cornbread, it’s pretty certain you will like these, too! Once you’ve gobbled down a hot hush puppy with butter, it’s hard NOT to grab another… and another!

A white plate full of Mom's southern hush puppies, ready to eat!Hot, sliced, and spread with soft butter is the best way to enjoy hush puppies!

If you enjoy these hush puppies, perhaps you would also be interested in my recipes for Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread, or Marie Callender’s Cornbread (copycat recipe)? All taste wonderful, and are another great option to serve with a variety of homemade soups or chilis.

I hope you will have the opportunity to try my Mom’s Southern Hush Puppies recipe. They really ARE easy to make. We love ’em, and hope you will, too! Thank you for stopping by, and humbly invite you to come back soon.

    Creamy Mashed Butternut Squash

    Enjoy delicious, creamy mashed butternut squash, made with only a few ingredients. This tasty veggie dish is EASY to make - you'll love it!

    If you’re looking for an easy to make vegetable side dish, I’d like to share a delicious recipe for creamy mashed butternut squash. This recipe is a “copycat” recipe from Boston Market, a restaurant based in the United States. The restaurants were in over 1,110 locations back in the 1990’s. They’re still around these days serving delicious homestyle food, but now in only about 400 locations in the U.S. I found the recipe in one of my “Top Secret” cookbooks by author Todd Wilbur.

    I’ve really grown to love butternut squash over the past 4-5 years! It is what is called a “winter squash”, but nowadays it is available year-round in the grocery store.  My family and I have enjoyed this veggie in Butternut Squash Soup with Bacon, Black Bean Butternut Squash Chili or Roasted Butternut Squash with Cranberries, Honey & Feta. I even enjoy making Glazed Butternut Squash in our Air Fryer!

    Honestly, the hardest thing about this recipe is peeling the butternut squash, and that’s not hard at all! After the peeled and cubed squash has been steamed, it is mashed along with a few spices, brown sugar and butter, and served. It’s easy, and the finished creamy mashed butternut squash is delicious, and can be served alongside a number of main dishes. Here’s how to make it:

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    Prepare The Butternut Squash For Steaming

    Use a vegetable peeler to remove all the peel from a medium-sized butternut squash. Slice off both ends. Cut the squash into two halves lengthwise, and then remove (and discard) the seeds and “pith”.

    After all seeds have been removed, cut the entire squash into 1″ cubes. Try to cut them all about the same size, so they cook evenly while being steamed.

    Steaming The Squash

    Place the cubes in a steamer basket sitting in a large saucepan over boiling water (water about two inches deep). Cover the pan. Let the squash steam for about 30 minutes, OR until the squash is fork-tender. Once done, remove the steamer (and squash) from the pan.

    The squash cubes are cooked in steamer in a pan over boiling water

    Prepare Spice Mix While Squash Is Cooking

    While the squash is steaming, get your spice mix and butter ready, so they are ready to ad to the squash once done and mashed. Melt the butter, and in a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, salt and pepper. Set aside.

    Spices and a bowl of melted butter to add to squash, once cooked.

    Preparing Creamy Mashed Butternut Squash For Serving

    Place the HOT, steamed butternut squash cubes into a large bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the squash, until this mixture becomes very smooth, and NOT lumpy!

    Add the melted butter and the spice mix to the squash and continue mashing it all together. Once fully combined, let the squash sit for about 5 minutes to give the flavors of the spices a chance to permeate the squash.

    After the creamy mashed butternut squash has “rested and mingled” for 5 minutes, give the squash a quick re-heating in a microwave  for about 1 minute. Now this delicious veggie dish is ready to serve.

    Give it a quick taste, and add additional salt, if needed, to suit your own personal taste. The flavors of this creamy dish pair well with many main dishes, and I think you will really enjoy it!

    Cheesy Italian Meatloaf is easy to make, and with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese in the middle and on top, it's a delicious meal!

    I came up with this meatloaf recipe after experimenting in our kitchen several months ago. I had decided I wanted to try making an Italian-inspired meatloaf, so I thought about what ingredients I wanted to incorporate, and came up with this recipe. It’s easy to make, and yields between 6-8 servings, depending on how thick you slice it.

    I’ve made meatloaf for years and years, but wanted to try something “different”. I pulled together some of my favorite ingredients… Italian sausage, ground beef, onions, garlic, Italian spices, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and marinara sauce, and launched from there. This layered, cheesy Italian meatloaf is the result… and it is quite yummy!  Here’s how to make it:

    Prepare The Meatloaf

    Place ground beef, Italian sausage, garlic, milk, Panko crumbs, eggs, onion, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning into a large mixing bowl. Using your clean hands or a large spoon, thoroughly mix these ingredients together. I usually just get in there with my hands… seems to get mixed together quicker!

    The ingredients for the meatloaf are combined in a large bowl.Once combined, the meatloaf mixture will be divided in half.

    Once mixed, divide the meatloaf mixture into two equal sized halves. Place one half of the meat mixture onto wax paper, and use your hands to shape it into a rectangle, about 9-10 inches long and 5 inches wide.

    Brush 7 Tablespoons of marinara sauce over the top of the meatloaf half, evenly dividing it over the surface. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of grated mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.

    Half of the meat mixture is formed into a rectangular shape.Marinara sauce and grated mozzarella cheese cover the meatloaf half.

    Finish Making The Meatloaf

    Use the remaining half of meatloaf mixture to cover the top of the meatloaf. I apply it in small “clumps” of meatloaf mixture, then gradually spread it out to mirror the bottom half in size. The cheese should be fully covered with this top layer of meatloaf mixture. Now you should have a bottom layer of meatloaf, a filling of sauce and cheese, and a top layer of meatloaf mixture, okay?

    Spoon enough of the remaining marinara sauce (a few Tablespoons) into a 11 x 7″ OR a 9×13″ baking pan to lightly cover the bottom. Carefully lift the meatloaf and transfer it (minus the wax paper) to the baking dish. Brush the remaining marinara sauce over the top and sides of the meatloaf.

    Top layer of meatloaf mixture is now covering the bottom half and cheese layer.Meatloaf is covered with marinara sauce before baking.

    Baking The Cheesy Italian Meatloaf

    Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake the meatloaf in a preheated 375°F oven for 1 hour. Remove the meatloaf from the oven, and immediately cover the top with the remaining 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese. Place the meatloaf (uncovered) back into the oven and let it cook for 10 more minutes.

    When done, the meatloaf should have an internal temperature of 165°F. The cheese will have melted all over the top of the meatloaf, and be beautiful and bubbly! Let the cheesy Italian meatloaf “rest” for 2-3 minutes, then slice and serve!

    After baking, meatloaf is covered with mozzarella cheese and baked 10 more minutes.Melted mozzarella covers the finished cheesy Italian meatloaf.

    Time To Eat Some Cheesy Italian Meatloaf!

    We enjoy the cheesy Italian meatloaf served with creamy mashed potatoes and a veggie. As you can see in the photo below, there is a middle layer of melted cheese, and lots of marinara sauce and cheese on the top.

    The ground beef and Italian sausage combination is a winner, along with all that sauce and cheese! YUM! When I eat this, it reminds me of eating Italian meatballs!

    A Way To Use Leftover Cheesy Italian Meatloaf!

    I have found that if we have leftover cheesy Italian meatloaf, it can be re-purposed to make a new meal with little to no effort. A couple days after we had the cheesy Italian meatloaf, I cut a couple slices into small bite sized pieces, and added it to homemade pasta sauce.

    Once again, the spices, cheese, ground beef and Italian sauce flavor in the meat paired perfectly with spaghetti! Yahoo! What a great tasting way to enjoy “LEFTOVERS”.

    Leftover cheesy Italian meatloaf can be cubed and added to spaghetti sauce.

    Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a chance to try this yummy meatloaf recipe. You might also want to check out my recipe for “Really GOOD Meatloaf“, which has been our “go-to” meatloaf recipe for many, many years. Have a great day… and come back soon!
