CHEF'S SECRETS

What is better than bacon? Millionaires Bacon!!!

Ingredients:

1 Pound thick cut bacon

5 Tbsp packed brown sugar

 Directions: Set your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil. Combine your spices and sugar together into a bowl and mix thoroughly. If you want your bacon more coated in sweet and spicy flavor, add more ingredients to your liking. Apply liberally to each strip of bacon by taking each strip and hand rubbing them (Or just pour it on and push in to the bacon!). Bake until crisp for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!

 

RANCH Meatloaf - so easy to throw together and put in the oven, and who doesn’t love ranch? You’ll probably want to double this recipe and make 2 at once - it’s even better left over!

Ingredients:

¾ pound ground beef

1  egg- beaten

1 packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix

1⁄3 cup dry bread crumbs

Directions: Set your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, but avoid excessive handling for a moist meatloaf. Form into a loaf and place in a baking dish or loaf pan. Bake for 40–45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.  Remove from oven and let the meatloaf stand covered for 10–15 minutes before slicing.
