Bacon Makes Everything Better!

Last weekend I had a HUGE craving for a cheeseburger.  Specifically a bacon mushroom cheeseburger.  And even though it was freezing out, my awesome boyfriend braved the snow of the backyard to grill them for us.  This was not a half-assed cheeseburger!  First we cooked the bacon, then sauteed the mushrooms in a tiny bit of bacon grease with some minced garlic.  Onions got caramelized in a metric ton of butter.  The meat got mixed up with some seasoned salt and some chili pepper.  Meat was grilled – bacon and Muenster cheese added and the whole shebang was topped with the caramelized onions and the mushrooms.  Look – it’s so tasty!

The potatoes we had are a favorite “recipe” that my mom makes.  Everyone loves them.  It’s a bunch of cubed potatoes, enough to fill a 13 x 9 pan, about 1/4 cup olive oil and a packet of onion soup mix.  Mix it all together (just use your hands!) and pop it in the oven at 375 for 45-ish minutes, until the potatoes are soft when you poke them with a fork.  (Yes, I use -ish a lot with the cooking – it all works, I promise!)  I like to eat them with a tiny bit of ketchup, but they are really good plain too.  I’ve been having a feeling that this would work good with a ranch mix as well, and if I try it I’ll post the results here!
