Onion Bacon Rolls
(adapted from Mr. Food – Cookin’ Quickies)

8 slices of bacon
1 small onion – diced
1/2 tsp. black pepper
16 oz. refrigerated roll dough (I used Pillsbury)
1/4 cup milk

*After baking these once before and getting 2 thumbs up, I suggest adding seasoning of your choice to the roll dough to give it even more flavor. Perhaps some garlic salt or onion salt!

Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon, reserving 1 tbsp drippings. Crumble bacon.

Saute diced onion in the bacon drippings until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Mix bacon, onions, and black pepper in a small bowl.

Pat each roll of dough into about a 3″ circle and spoon about 1 tbsp bacon mixture into the center of each roll. Bring up the edges and pinch them together to seal closed.

Put dough pockets seam side down into a lightly greased muffin pan.

Brush rolls with milk (you can sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top too if you wish).

Bake in a preheated oven 375° for 15 minutes or until golden.


Smith Family Night – The Letter “O”


Since our previous Fun Nights had been for friends only, we decided to have an evening to show our families what these fun nights were all about. And so Smith Family Fun Night evolved and the letter O was chosen. The event took place on Saturday, September 3, 2011. We had a great time and our families did too!

It’s been cold this weekend so I figured I’d post a recipe that will warm you up! I find this recipe to be so yummy that you don’t necessarily need other foods to accompany it…it’s so good that you could eat it by itself if you so desire!

Sweet Potato Bake
(makes about 10 servings)

3 cans (15 oz. each) sweet potatoes – drained
1/4 c. butter – melted
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350°.
Beat the sweet potatoes, butter, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl with mixer on medium speed until blended.
Spoon into a lightly greased 1.5 qt. baking dish.
Sprinkle marshmallows on top.
Bake 15 – 20 minutes until it’s heated through and the marshmallows are lightly browned.
