I made this as part of the "Annual Sunday After Christmas Youth Breakfast." It was big hit. Creamed dried beef on toast or home fires is an absolute winner where I live. A layer of eggs in the middle is a bonus! Somehow it didn't seem right to not have the toast or home fries. So I prepared a bottom layer of store-bought hash browns browned in olive oil. The little bit of crunch brought this great recipe home!

Oops! Pushed the wrong key! I may have misread the instructions. There was not enough of the chorizo-potato mixture for all 24 mini-muffin cups. Another time I will use a regular muffin pan adding more baking time. No question. I will make it again trying some of the suggested variations.

Sticky Orange Chicken with Nectarines

I made Sticky NECTARINE Chicken instead. I have some very ripe nectarines that I pitted and boiled in enough water to cover them. I added some non-sugar sugar. Puréed the nectarines and skin with an immersion blender. Then added the rest of the sauce ingredients. We are not folks who like it really hot so I halved the pepper sauce. It was still more heat than we wanted. I added some more nectarine juice which helped.

This is a definite keeper. I don’t use my air fryer enough so this was a good test of my air dryer skills [still need some to develop]. Didn’t have any sausage; used bacon [had to pan fry it first]. Didn’t have red pepper; used yellow. Added some spinach and arugula. It didn’t look like very much before cooking. Was plenty for 2 with leftovers. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Turkey-Lentil Chili

I recently saw a cooking show where cooks were encouraged to seek and find “soon to expire” fresh and canned vegetables. So used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and a can of black beans [washed & drained]. We are not big sausage eaters, so I found a sausage recipe and extracted the spices [marjoram leaves, cloves, brown sugar]. Added some salt and pepper. Nice soup for a cold, wintry day. And pretty healthy, too.
