Pepperoni Squares

Here is another recipe that I cooked on TV in June.
Like I said before I am running very behind on my blogging... Busy Summer 
But this is another recipe that is really easy and the kids love!

Studio 4 asked me to do a few of my cooking segments at the Wonderland theme park
Wonderland Theme park is an amusement park in Amarillo Texas. 
And Yes it was HOT!
In the middle of the summer heat during the worst drought since the 1930's! 
I know this is so us... we leave the wettest year Arkansas has in years and move to a drought! 
But the Lord will provide and thank God we have plenty of water and irrigation to make that corn grow!
OK, back to Wonderland...
It was like the 1st week of June and I thought the kids might enjoy doing a cooking segment at a amusement park.  So, I loaded up all the girls and my recipe and we went live on Ch. 4!
The girls did great!  They liked to have roasted in the heat, but they did great!

 Ok, here is what you need.... 
2 cups of flour, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 12 ounces Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 cups milk, 1 packaged sliced pepperoni, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Mix flour, eggs, salt, oregano, cheddar cheese, and milk

Whisk it all together!
My girls describe these as cheese bread sticks with Pepperoni in them!

So, now I throw, literally, pepperonis in.  
I  like the diced ones because they cut better than the regular sized ones.

Now I pour it into a well GREASED 9 x13 baking pan.  

Then I sprinkle it with the Parmesan cheese
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes 
Let them cool and cut into squares.

I serve these with pizza sauce.
Really great summer or after school snacks! 

This recipe came from a wonderful Junior League cook book!
Junior League of Pine Bluff  Arkansas has 2 great cook books.  
One is called "Southern Accent A second Helping" and the 2nd one is "Southern Accent'.  
Both can be found online!

Here is the link to the girls and I cooking on Studio 4!

Sausage Stars

Sausage Stars 

I have a collection of recipes from all 3 different states that we have lived in.  This one for sausage stars came from Vacation Bible School one summer in Arkansas.  I was teaching and a group of ladies had made snacks for the teachers.  I tried them and I had to get the recipe.  This recipe is from my dear friend  Charlotte Wafford! 
Hope you all enjoy them as much as my family does. 

I cooked these on TV in the month of May so I am running behind blogging about them.  I attached the link where you can watch!

Start off with Sausage

You want to brown your sausage meat and drain it

A small bottle of wishbone Ranch dressing.
You will learn quick that I don't use fake anything!  If I can't have real Mayo, Ranch, Butter, Cream Cheese, Or sour cream then I don't cook it!  I believe that the real is better for you any way.... just get your butts up the next morning and run it off.  And just because you cook a whole pan doesn't mean you have to eat the whole pan!!!!!

Mix the drained Sausage and 1/2 the bottle of ranch together.
Then you are going to add 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese and stir it all together.
You may need more dressing because you want it to all stick together from the dressing

Then you add a small can of chopped black olives...
This is my helper for the morning... 
She is in her swimsuit we are heading to the pool today because it has not rained in TX in like a year!

Here is helper #2..
She wants you to take Jewish Rye bread and cut the slices in half

Spray you pan with Pam and spread the Rye bread on the tray

Now top with the olive mixture and bake at 350 degrees long enough to melt the cheese
and toast the bread

Then you serve.
Mrs. Charlotte told me that you can freeze these and use them later!
But I can assure you they will be a big hit!

Here is my link to when I cooked them on TV...
