My own Signature Dish - Omelets Monterrey

First, thinly slice three large slices of avocado, and gently sautee in brandy; remove before they disntegrate or melt!

Second, make five one-egg omelets; melt two generous slices of cheese in each of four of the omelets (this is personal choice on the cheeses); in the last omelet, place the sauteed avocado

Plate to a 14" platter with a single ladle of Hollandaise sauce on top; garnish with single tbspn/scoops of sour cream and guacamole on one side, and an orange-peel twist on the other

Serve with Champagne for brunch, or white wine for dinner.

Here's a personal favorite:

(low altitude recipe - adjust oven heat, as necessary, for higher altitudes)

Applesauce Meatloaf

4 lbs. lean ground beef
6 eggs
2 cups bread crumbs
2 cups applesauce
1-1/2 cups milk
small onion

Combine, by hand, the ground beef, onion, and eggs. Once completely blended, fold in the applesauce and bread crumbs and blend into mixture. Add milk and work it into the mixture.

Next step, form 2 loaves and set side by side on baking pan. Use a baking pan with a rack, if possible, to keep excess juices away from the meat. (Try to avoid making the center of the loaves too high as this can cause cooking time to increase.)

Cover (with foil) and bake at 375 degrees for 1-1/2 hours.

Remove from oven and spread topping over the loaves.


"Light" Brown Sugar
Dry Mustard

Combine ingredients to taste - it should be similar in taste to bbq sauce.

Leave uncovered and place back in oven for additional 30 minutes.


Remove from oven and serve with mashed potatoes and vegetable of choice.


Serves 10.
Makes excellent sandwiches, the next day. :)
Freezes well.

Stovetop stuffed chicken rolls
Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 40 min
Makes: 6 servings

I think my son likes this because he can pound the chicken flat<g>

1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
1 cup water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. paprika

PREHEAT oven to 400F. Combine stuffing mix and water in large bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in eggs. Spread stuffing mixture evenly onto chicken breasts to within 1/2 inch of sides. Roll up from one of the short ends to enclose stuffing mixture.
PLACE, seam sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish. Mix soup and milk; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with paprika.
BAKE 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Since he is a single father raising three kids ages 6-9 he needs something healthy, filling and quick and easy.
