Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Burgers

Instead of asking "why stuff a burger with bacon and cheddar?"...ask yourself WHY NOT?!?

1 lb ground beef chuck


In a large bowl combine ground beef, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce together. Form the meat into 8 equal portioned patties. Place patties on a plate and cover under refrigeration until ready to use.

In a small bowl, combine cheddar cheese, bacon, barbecue sauce and onion together. To stuff burgers, place a small about of cheese and bacon mixture in the middle of four patties. Cover the filled patties with the plain patties, securing the burgers by crimpling the sides with your fingers. Chill burgers until ready to cook.

Broil, grill or sauté burger until cheese has melted and the meat is cooked well. Place on toasted hamburger buns and top as desired. The filling in these burgers will be VERY hot, be careful when eating.

Linguine with Garlic Shrimp

Never met a shrimp dish I didn't LOVE! (But then again, my dad did own a restaurant named The Shrimp House!!)

12 oz fresh shrimp, deveined


For garlic paste, cut 1/2 inch off the pointed portions of garlic bulbs. Remove the outer papery layers of the garlic. Place both bulbs on a piece of foil. Bring edges of foil together to form a pouch. Seal. Bake garlic in a 375° oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until very soft. When cool enough to handle, use your fingers to press garlic pulp from each clove. Mash pulp with a spoon or fork to make a smooth paste (should have about 2 to 3 tablespoons). Set aside.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook mushrooms and sweet pepper in hot oil until pepper is tender.
In a small bowl stir together the garlic paste, water, basil, cornstarch, oregano, bouillon, granules, and black pepper. Add to mushroom mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add the shrimp to the mushroom mixture. Cover and simmer about 2 minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Stir in tomatoes; heat through.
To serve, spoon shrimp over pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Toss to combine.
