Default A Few Of My Favorites!

BLT Spread

1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Mayonnaise (Hellmann's works best)
1 pkg. Bacon
1 large tomato
1/2 cup lettuce

Mix sour cream and mayo in medium serving bowl until well blended. Stir in bacon and tomato; top with lettuce. Serve with assorted crackers. You can double the recipe for larger gatherings!

8-10 medium potatoes, boiled, peeled and cubed
1-1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 small onions - finely chopped
1-1/2 cups mayonnaise

Mix and spread all of the above ingredients into a 9 x 13 pan (use cooking spray to coat pan). Sprinkle on 1/2 lb. half-cooked bacon and 1 small jar chopped green olives (optional). Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Delicious!

BBQ Beef Sandwiches

2.5 to 3 lbs lean boneless chuck roast
1/4 cup tomato ketchup
1 tbsp. Dijon-style mustard
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

10 to 12 French rolls or sandwich buns

Place beef in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients, except rolls of course! (Can you believe my ex brother-in-law shredded the rolls and put them in with the rest of the ingredients? LOL! Definitely a burger shy of a Happy Meal!)

Pour over meat. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 9 hours. Shred beef by pulling it apart with 2forks. Add one cup sauce. Reheat mixture in microsave or on stovetop. Spoon on warm, open-face rolls or buns. Top with additional warm sauce if desired.

Double or triple the recipe, as needed.
