It’s summer!! Well at least in Florida. And summer means drinks and barbecuing and fun outside.
To kick off summer I made bacon wrapped hotdogs stuffed with cheese. The bacon made a great wrap but requires constant watch on the grill. To round out the meal I made myself a Dirty Shirley Templr. Because hey, sun’s out so the rum’s out.

It was a rough day of being sick, and the last thing I wanted to do was cook. This meal is not only easy, but simple enough I could enlist my kids to help. Bacon, eggs, cheese and tater tots; the perfect breakfast for dinner combination!
Tater Tot Breakfast Cups
36 Frozen tater tots
1 package of bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tin by spraying with non-stick spray.
Cook bacon in skillet until desired crispness. Chop into small pieces.
Place 3 tater tots per muffin cup. Crack one egg over each cup. Season with salt and pepper. Top with bacon and cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Run a knife around the edges to loosen. Serve warm! Top with salsa or eat on their own. Enjoy!!
It takes a little creative thinking to get my kids to eat certain veggies. Zucchini is one of those veggies. So, since I know they love ground chicken patties and corn, I mixed them all together with a little bit of shredded zucchini and they gobbled them up! Best part, they had no idea here was any green veggies in them!
Zucchini Corn Chicken Fritters
1 zucchini; shredded and drained of Ezra water
1/2 can of corn; drained
1lb of ground chicken
1 handful of Monterey Jack cheese
1 egg; whisked
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 tsp of pepper
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of dried minced onions
Preheat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet to medium heat. Shred zucchini and press out any excess water. Place into medium bowl. Drain can of corn and add half to the zucchini. Add ground chicken, cheese, egg, bread crumbs and spices. Mix well with hands.
Form into parties and place into the heated oil. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until chicken is cooked through. Continue with the rest of the chicken mixture. Top with extra cheese.
