cheeseburger in … mount’n home!






Yes, I’ve returned… and once again, because of my long absence, I feel I have to apologize and explain away.  I have a job. In a real place, with real people, and they actually pay me! The lovely Mountain Home AFB Airmen and Family Readiness Center (where I volunteered for some time) is a dream job, and after almost 25 years of marriage, 20+ years of volunteering at one base or another, raising 3 lovely children, getting 3 degrees, moving to 11 different bases, on 3 different countries, I guess it is my time ~ anyway, I’m trying to figure out where everything fits, and coming to the realization that I don’t have unlimited time to cook and write and work and clean and care for the family…




With all that said, tonight’s dinner was something close to AH-mazing!  What was it? you ask? Cheeseburgers. On homemade, toasted, onion and pecorino buns. Stuffed with cream cheese, bacon, jalepeno, garlic and pepper jack. ‘nough said.

For the buns, I used my sandwich roll recipe, added 2 T minced onion and 1/3 c Pecorino cheese to the dough, after shaping and the single rise, I brushed the tops with an egg wash, sprinkled more onion and cheese on top.
