Foodie Friday!

I thought
I would start out this Foodie Friday
with something enticing.

Everybody loves bacon...
It was on sale this week at the grocery store.
Besides Grampa was craving a BLT....

I've discovered that this is the perfect way to prepare it.
I put tinfoil on a baking sheet.
Spread the bacon out nice and straight.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 18-20 minutes.
It comes out nice & straight & just perfect!
And the clean-up is a snap!

By the time everybody munched on apiece or two,
Grampa barely had enough left for his sandwich.

My Aunt made these yummy brownies
for our Family Reunion Picnic
and I have been craving them ever since.

They're called S'more Brownies.

Start with a regular brownie mix.

They're pretty simple.
They just require these few added extras.

Spread the Brownies into a prepared 9x13 pan
and bake as directed for about 18 minutes.

When you take them out of the oven
immediately cover them with the
entire bag of
Miniature Marshmallows,
and the entire bag of
Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips.

Then just top it off with
the Graham Cracker squares.
(I think that maybe next time
I may crush the crackers into large chunks
and then sprinkle them on top.)
Return them to the oven
for about 5 minutes
until everything is nice & melty!

They are best
when you let them cool
before eating.
Although that is very hard to do.
Just don't burn your tongue!

Actually, they are better
the Next Day!

loved that bacon tip! I do mine in the micro, but this is even better. Glad to hear I made you feel great about your own Can you believe those were in magazines.

Stacey said...

That all looks so good! I've tried that bacon trick before and forgot all about it. Thanks!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

My g'kiddo's would love those brownies!! Yum!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Robin! I am going to try making my bacon like that. It is always so messy in the microwave and even worse in the skillet. So greasy, and it looks pretty good out of the oven. Now those brownie smores. I am going to be in trouble when I go to the dr.s next week. I am going to try these when the grandkids come on Sunday. What a wonderful treat that would be. Please stop by and say hi. Country Hugs, Sherry

Mary said...

Thanks for the tips and taste treats. The brownie/s'mores look incredible :-). Have a wonderful weekend.

Beverly said...

Yum, Robyn. I would like one of these this evening while I'm working on tomorrow's post.

Justine said...

OMG, Robyn, I got a sugar rush just looking at the pics. But OMG, they look SO good. I wish so bad that I could eat sweet stuff. Damn this hypoglycemia!!!! Arghhhhhhhhhh!

And one of these days I'm going to try the bacon in the oven like that. I have an electric griddle that works wonderfully, but I hate cleaning it.

Justine :o )

I've made bacon in the microwave but never in the oven....great idea. Those brownies look delicious and WHO doesn't like S'MORES. I'm making those the next time I make brownies. Happy Friday@

ksarra said...

Yummy, glad I stopped by just in time! That is a great idea for the bacon, I hadn't heard of that one before. The smores look delicious. I always love getting new recipes at our family reunion. We usually have it around the 1st weekend in November so that we can be outside! My favorite part is looking at all the photos from the previous reunions. My aunt and uncle are so good about keeping the photo albums updated.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Mmmm...bacon! Nice tip on how to ook it.I haven't had any in ages. I think I'll buy some as my toamtoes should be getting ripe soon and there is nothing better than a BLT sandwich!

The s'mores is one one fabulous dessert!

Have a good weekend!

hugs, Pat

xinex said...

Bobbie said...

i too cook th e bacon in oven- it is so much easier- but I never thought of using the tin foil on the sheet pan! I bet that makes it so much easier! it is hard to clean.

D said...

I will try the bacon thing tomorrow. Do you cover the bacon? And does it pop and splatter if you don't?



salmagundi said...

I've got to try the brownies - yum, yum!! And, bacon - why isn't is healthy for you like lettuce? Then we could have it every day!! Sally

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Oh man, it has been a long time since I've had a bacon sandwich, boy that sounds really good! I wish I could eat some of those brownies, they look so good too. Oh well, the upside of not being able to eat sweets is that I'm fitting back in to all of my clothes again!
