  • 1 lb Mousetrap Pimento Cheese
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup Sorghum

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove pits from the dates (You can do this by slightly cutting a slit into one side of the dates and carefully removing the pit. You don't really want to cut your date into two halves).
  • Stuff each date with a heaping spoonful of pimento cheese.
  • Wrap each date with a 1/2 slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  • Place on a cooking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Be sure to spray the aluminum foil with cooking spray, so they don't stick.
  • Drizzle lightly with sorghum.
  • Cook for approximately 14-18 minutes or until the bacon is done (flip them half way). Be sure to keep an eye on them just in case. Depending on the type of bacon that you use, it could affect the cooking time.

Bourbon Praline Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

Servings 6

Equipment

  • Aluminum foil
  • Baking dish

Ingredients

  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • 3 tbsp Serious Foodie Kentucky Bourbon Rub
  • 1 jar Dr. Pete's Praline Glaze
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili flakes

Instructions

  • Begin by rubbing the drumsticks with the Kentucky Bourbon rub. Then bake your sticks in a sprayed, foil covered baking dish in the oven at 325 degrees for about 1 hour, checking them after 45 minutes and then every 5 minutes. You want them just underdone so you can finish them on an outdoor/stove top grill or just broil them for a few minutes to get a crispy finish.
  • Once done, brush or drizzle warm Dr. Pete's Praline Glaze and finish with a sprinkle of chili flakes. thie chili flakes balance the sweet of the sauce.

Pimento Cheese and Candied Bacon Burgers

Servings 4

Equipment

  • Parchment paper
  • Aluminum foil
  • Baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Mousetrap pimento cheese
  • 1 lb ground beef chuck, shaped into 1/4" patties
  • 4 buns
  • 2 tbsp cracked pepper
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 8 pieces bacon

Instructions

How to make candied bacon:

  • Preheat the oven to about 330 degrees.
  • Put the bacon in a bowl and season them with pepper. Toss the bacon and pepper with about 1/3 cup of light brown sugar.
  • Cover a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Make sure there is a single layer. If there is any sugar left over, sprinkle it over the bacon.
  • Place another layer of foil or parchment paper on top, and then place another baking sheet on top to flatten the bacon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and then check on it. If it isn't golden brown or a little crispy, cook again for another 10 minutes. Check it again. Repeat if necessary. I ended up cooking the bacon for about 40 minutes. Just something to remember: the bacon will still cook a little even after it has been removed from the oven.

How to make the burgers:

  • Grill burgers to desired temperature, adding a generous layer of pimento cheese to the top after they are done.
  • Add finished candied bacon and serve immediately.
