Peanut Butter Fudge

Is there anything better in the world besides peanut butter fudge? Maybe fudge fudge or dark chocolate fudge. Still, PB rocks and this recipe from my Grandmother is the BEST! I remember her making fudge for the Holidays when I was little. She would make all kinds….PB, plain fudge, fudge with nuts, white chocolate fudge. Really, there was way too much fudge, if there can be such a thing. I think that I am going to try to make Dark Chocolate Fudge this year. This is an afterthought, though, as I just bought the supplies for all of my baking yesterday and it didn’t dawn on me to try dark chocolate.

Peanut Butter Fudge

12 oz Peanut Butter
½ pound oleo (butter)
3 TBSP milk
4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Melt the first 3 ingredients over low heat and add vanilla. Work in powdered sugar. Press into pan. Grandma’s recipe didn’t say what size pan, I think an 8 x 11 would work great. Cool in the fridge for several hours before cutting.

In the pan before cutting.

Cut into small squares and wrap for gifts or enjoy! The moans & groans coming from Jon and I after eating this were enough to make Aaron look at us like we were crazy! LOL!

Inside Out Burgers ~ Take #2

I posted a week or so ago that I had tried to make Inside Out Burgers and it hadn’t worked out so well. I had hypothesized that I needed to cook the burgers in a pan or on a grill, not on the George Foreman Grill because I figured out that that had squeezed all of my toppings out. So, tonight we went for “Take #2″ and had success!! YAY!! I used the same recipe for the meat. The only change I made was using hot pepperjack cheese in the middle of my burger. What I ended up with was excellent! I placed my burger on a bed of iceburg lettuce & roma tomatoes, flanked with portabella mushrooms sauteed in Ken’s Lite Olive Oil Vinaigrette. YUM!! I served steamed broccoli and sweet potato french fries on the side. A very tasty dinner. The hot pepperjack cheese added just the right kick to my burger. Normally I put Frank’s Red Hot on my burger, but there was no need to tonight.

Here are a couple of shots:

Cheesy, yummy goodness…

So, here is the meat mixture again:

1 – 1.5 pounds ground beef (or half ground turkey)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used hot pepperjack tonight)
1 1/2 tsps paprika
1 TBSP worchestershire (I use Lea & Perrins)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

I mixed all ingredients, except the cheese, together in a bowl. I then formed thin patties and placed a bit of cheese on each patty, then another small patty on top. I sealed those patties around the cheese.

**you could add any number of things to the inside mix….bacon, olives, spinach….anything you like.
