BLT, turkey and avocado wraps

BLT. Yes please! In a wrap, yes and yes! Although I hated blt’s as a kid they are one of my favorites!

What you need:
Bacon– I actually prefer turkey bacon but my hubby quickly. vetoed it. He says it is too healthy 🙂
Lettuce– I ALWAYS use spinach, it is the healthiest.
Tomato (in case you do not know what BLT stands for)
Tortilla
Your topping choice– mayo/ ranch.
Deli meat
Avocados (optional)

What to do:
Cook the bacon to your liking. In my house, the crispier the better.
After cooked and cooled, chop to smaller pieces.
Layer deli meat, tomato, lettuce, bacon and avocado. Wrap it in a tortilla!!

I served it with oven fries for dinner tonight.

Enjoy!

Sausage stuffed shrooms

We had appetizer night! I am only sharing two because the third was not so good. Sometimes I do have flops!!

What you need:

1-2 packages large mushrooms (with stems)
1 package cream cheese (I didn’t need the whole package because i was making for two!)
12 oz sausage– take out of the casing
2 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
1 handful of shredded mozzarella, goat cheese and Parmesan cheese.

*sometimes I do not measure very well– I blame my mom for that 🙂

What to do:
Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Keep the stems and chop.
Cook the sausage and drain grease.
In a mixer blend: sausage, cream cheese, stems and all cheeses.
Spoon in mushrooms
Bake or grill until lightly brown at top!
I used the oven tonight and actually used a muffin tin and they did not fall over.

Enjoy!
