Cinnamon Rolls Made in a Waffle Iron

1)   Cinnamon Rolls
2)   Non-Stick Spray
3)   Cream Cheese

1)   Preheat the waffle iron.
2)   Spray with the non-stick spray.
3)   Separate folls and cook 1 1/2 to 3 minutes.
4)   Remove from the waffle iron and place on a platter.
5)   Squeese the cream cheese topping over the waffled
       cinnamon rolls.

Bacon Cooked in an Oven

1)   1 lb. thick-cut Bacon

1)   Preheat the oven to 400 degrees f.  (You won't be broiling the
       oven, so put your oven rack in the middle of the oven to
       distribute the heat evenly.)
2)   Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.   Make sure the
       foil extends up the sides of the pan so it captures all the
       bacon grease and clean up is easier.
3)   Arrange the bacon strips directly on the foil.  It's okay if the
       bacon overlaps slightly, because it will shrink slightly as it
       bakes.  OR place the bacon on a rack.  Place the baking pan
       in the oven.
4)   Cook bacon for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how chewy
       or crispy you like the bacon.
5)   Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined platter.  The
       extra grease will be absorbed by the paper towels, and the
       bacon will crisp up a bit as it cools.  You can then transfer it
       to a clean plate to serve.

Microwave Muffins

1)   1/3 cup Original Bisquick Mix
2)   3 tbs. Sugar
3)   1/4 tsp. ground Cinnamon
4)   1/2 mashed ripe Banana (about 1/4 cup)
5)   1 tbs melted Butter
6)   1 tbs. fat-free Egg Product
7)   1/8 tsp. Vanilla
8)   1 tbs. chopped unsalted Nuts (Pecans, Walnuts)

1)   Spray bottoms of 2 microwavable mugs (about 12 oz. each)
       with cooking spray.
2)   In a small bowl, stir Bisquick mix, sugar, cinnamon, banana,
       melted butter, egg product and vanilla until mixed well.  Stir
       in nuts.
3)   Divide batter equally into mugs (about 1/3 cup batter each),
4)   Microwave one at a time uncovered on High 45 to 60 seconds
       or until muffin top is set and edge pulls away from the side
       of the mug.
5)   Let stand 1 minute before serving.  Serve warm directly from
       the mugs.
6)   If desired, serve with butter.

Egg & Cheese Hash Brown Waffles

1)   One 20-ounce package Hash Brown Potatoes
2)   3 Eggs
3)   1/4 cup Milk
4)   1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar Cheese
5)   1/4 cup fresh chopped Chives, plus some for garnishing
6)   Salt and Pepper
7)   Sour Cream for serving, if desired

1)   Heat waffle iron on the medium-high setting.
2)   Spray each side generously with non-stick cooking spray
       or brush with melted butter.
3)   In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and
       milk.  Stir in potatoes, cheese, chives and season with
       1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
4)   Depending on the size of your waffle iron, scoop a layer
       of the potato mixture on the surface (for the round waffle
       maker Kathleen used about 1 cup of the mixer).
5)   Spread to about 1/2 inch from the edges and close the
       waffle iron.
6)   Cook for about 5 minutes, checking every few minutes to
       avoid burning.
7)   When the entire waffle is golden brown in color, carefully
       remove from the waffle iron with a fork or tongs.

1)   Turn your oven to the "warm" function and place finished
       waffles on a baking sheet in the oven to keep warm while
       the rest are cooking.
