Hot Meat & Cheese Sliders

Hot Meat and Cheese Sliders

These are an easy quick meal. We like to change it up with different meats and cheeses. Ham & Swiss, Roast Beef & Cheddar, Turkey and Munster.


18 – 24 King Hawaiian Rolls
1 – 2 lb Meat (Depending on how thick you like your sandwich)
1/2 – 1 lb sliced cheese
4 – 8 T Honey Mustard (We love Sweet Baby Rays)
1/2 cup Butter
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1 T Dehydrated Onions


Pre-heat oven to 350. Slice Rolls, spread honey mustard on one half of each roll. Cover with meat and cheese. Put the top on. Melt the butter and add garlic and onions.  Brush butter mixture on top of each roll. Bake for 10-15 minutes until hot and the garlic and onions are browning.

Creamy Mac & Cheese

Macaroni & Cheese is a comfort food for me. I have played around with different recipes for years before coming up with the this one. It has been a family favorite for over 15 years. My family prefers it baked.


4 T Butter
4 T Flour
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Onion Power
2 cups Milk
1 tsp Minced Onion
1 cup American Cheese
1 cup Sharp Cheese
1 cup Colby Jack Cheese
6 cups Cooked Macaroni


Cook your macaroni while preparing sauce. In a large stock pot melt butter. Combined flour, pepper, salt, and onion powder. Whisk into butter creating a paste. Whisk in milk and garlic, continue whisking until it starts to thicken. Add cheeses and whisk until all the cheese is mixed in and smooth. Stir in macaroni.

Baked option:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Pour mac & cheese into a casserole dish and top with 1 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs. Bake for 30 minutes.

It also bakes well in a dutch oven.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

I learned this recipe from my mother-in-law. I have to admit I have increase the amount of cheese and bacon from her recipe. Who doesn’t love cheese and bacon? This is a family favorite that we enjoy year round. It can me doubled or tripled easily for a large gathering. It can easily prepare a head of time since you stir in the dressing right before serving. I do have to admit it is only good for the first 24 hours of having the dressing, but at our house there is rarely left overs.


2-3 cups Broccoli
1-2 cups Cauliflower
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Bacon Bits
1 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Milk
2 T Sugar
2 T Mustard


Cut broccoli and cauliflower into bite size pieces. Add cheese and bacon bits. Stir together mayonnaise, milk, sugar, and mustard to make dressing. Stir on dressing right before severing.
