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.

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn commission from these links. I offer them to you at no extra charge. I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are deliciously tart, not too sweet, and pillow-y soft.  I have so many wonderful holiday baking memories. It wasn't until I was older, that Mom actually let me help her with all the tons of baking she did. When I was little, I'd sit and watch her work, fascinated at how easy she made it look. When I moved out on my own, my holiday baking tradition became one of re creating the desserts of my childhood. I went many years not being able to spend Christmas with my family, so my tradition was a way to feel closer to my them. After my children were born, I had wonderful plans for holiday traditions. Baking cookies, while the snow was gently falling outside. My children, prim and proper, not making a single mess, decorating cookies until they looked like works of art. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it? My wake up call came when my son was two. The cookie dough had been chilled and we were set to roll, cut and decorate our cookies. That's when I almost
