Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

 A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.





Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread


1 demi baguette
1/3 C butter melted
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
5 slices Applewood Smoked bacon, chopped
1 C part skim mozzarella, grated
2 green onions, green tops only, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a serrated knife cut slits into the baguette, making sure NOT to cut completely through the bread, about 1/2 inch apart. Place into a baking dish and set aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, mix the butter and garlic. Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds, until the butter is hot and melted. Set aside to let garlic infuse.

In a small skillet, over medium heat, cook bacon, to desired doneness. Remove cooked bacon with a slotted spoon, to a paper towel to drain. Once bacon has cooled, toss it with the mozzarella and green onion.

Gently separating each slice of the baguette, brush the insides of the bread with garlic butter. Next, insert generous pinches of cheese-bacon mixture into each slit. Brush stuffed bread with remaining garlic butter and top with any remaining cheese-bacon mixture.

Bake in upper 1/3 section of your preheated oven, for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese has completely melted. Serve warm.

Beginners Guide to Meal Planning: 6 Time Saving and Money Saving Tips

It's 5 pm and I'm exhausted from a busy day in the cafeteria. Weary I stand in front of the open fridge debating whether the brownies on the counter would be an acceptable dinner. Sound familiar?

With so many pressures of everyday life, it's easy to take the easy way out and reach for your cellphone to order take out. It gets delivered right to your door! But like many others, our income took a huge hit with the recent pandemic. As income decreased, our eating increase. What else are we suppose to do stuck at home?

I've always been a fan of meal planning, but when I stopped blogging 5 yrs ago, the meal planning also stopped. I was no longer sharing with you guys, and exhausted from returning to work after 14 years of being a stay at home wife and mother. The result? I fell into the take out, "let's go out" rut. It's a delicious rut to be in, but not great for your health, or your wallet!

So today I wanted to share some tri…

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pops

Peanut butter cheesecake batter is dipped into melted chocolates, creating these simple treats, perfect for Halloween!






This is Halloween, this is Halloween.... I made these cute little cheesecake pops a few years back, when I hosted a Monster High party, for my daughter and her friends.
I have to tell you that these pops were a total hit. The kids (and moms alike) LOVED how cute they were and how delicious they tasted. By the end of the party, I think there was only 2 or so left. Just enough for my son to try one. I decided to decorate my pops as pumpkins and mummies, because I had some fun black/orange, and black/white, paper straws that I had bought over the summer. 
This recipe could not be easier. 3 ingredients, plus your different colours of melting chocolate. I think the hardest and most frustrating part was that as the pops sat, after being dipped, some started to crack. Not sure why. I simply piped a small amount of chocolate on the cracks and went on with my work. Queenie wat…
