Main Course - Pork


Baby Back Ribs

Place a rack of baby backs in a shallow baking pan with a metal rack underneath. Sprinkle on garlic powder and spoon on apricot preserve. Cook in the oven at 250 for about 6 hours. When the preserve turns black, the ribs are done. These ribs are sweet and the meat will fall right off the bone.


The Heart Clogger

Melt a package of cheddar cheese in a small sauce pan, along with a cup of bacon bits.
Serve with steak fries.
This is like having potato skins, but with less potato and more cheese and bacon!


The Pepperoni Pizza Omlette

This omlette is a welcome change from just having bacon as a side dish.
Make an open face omlette with swiss cheese and add:
crisp pieces of pepperoni and slices of tomato.

Spanish Rice

Mix together in an oven dish:
Cooked rice,
Chopped up Italian sausage that was cooked in spaghetti sauce and
Mozzarella cheese. Top with more Mozzarella cheese.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Sausage and Peppers and Onions

This is a staple in an Italian household.

Fry up some onions and remove.
Cut up some Italian sausage in about 3 inch sections and brown on each side.
Add some roasted peppers (Mancini brand is best).
Put the onions back in and fry another 10 minutes.
Serve with some Italian bread.

Breakfast Burrito

This combines Italian sausage, onions and potatoes in a burrito.

Fry up some onions, cut up potatoes and Italian sausage.

Next, add a couple of eggs to the pan and scramble up.

Place a flour burrito in the oven and broil each side until warm.
Add the pan contents and fold.

Pepperoni Pizza

You can make your own dough, but I'm lazy. I just buy it.

Roll out the dough onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle garlic powder on it.

Spoon on the pizza sauce (I prefer Classico's).

Next add your cheese (I prefer 6 cheese Italian).

Then spread on the pepperoni. I use the packaged, sliced pepperoni.

Bake on the top shelf at 500 degrees until the crust turns brown (10 - 15 minutes).
If the bottom isn't brown, put the sheet on the bottom rack and cook until brown.
