Something kind of special...

Hi, everyone...
I am sorry for all the snow that's been dumped on so many states.
I have never been in that much snow for an extended time ...
* here in West Texas, in 1956, we had over 30 inches but nothing like that since.

This following is such an easy way to dress up a meatloaf
or any kind of meat mixture you might want to use
for the next time you have a party...or just a group of friends over for
drinks and snacks.

 I added cheese, onions, peppers, spices, chili sauce/ketchup,
bread crumbs, egg....not remembering what else.

Roll it up....roll it up and throw it in a pan...
that's a patty cake.

After filling the long log of pastry,
cut it in pieces...bite size or a little larger.

Brush a little egg white on each piece and you will have such a
delightful browning to these little morsels.

I made a dipping sauce..(I just LUV dipping sauces)
with Ranch Dressing, Cayenne Pepper
 and a splash or two of FRANKS RED HOT SAUCE.

I've made these little honeys with thin ham slices hugged in sharp cheddar
and they are DELICIOUS....especially dipped in HONEY MUSTARD....UMMMM

I think next time, I will do sausage and cheese...
ummmm....sounds good to me.

  1. BJ, How clever are you...that looks so tasty . Nice for a party gathering. I have been cold today snow in our forecast, maybe. I could not take all that snow on the east coast...I would be so sad. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. Yum…looks so tasty! We have had over 80" snow so far - and more to come this weekend - I am hoping for SUN on Saturday so I can venture out to MacKenzie-Childs for their Valentine sale!!

  3. What a MARVELOUS idea!!! I need to pick up some of that pastry next time I'm in a grocery store!!

  4. My mouth's watering ... and not so much for the main event, as that Ranch dressing dipping creation. Love how you experiment with flavors and don't mind sharing!

  5. Ok, I just might be able to eat meatloaf now, if it's rolled in puff pastry! Brilliant!

  6. Your sausage rolls look great. And I've never thought of using a dipping sauce with them!
    Anyway, nice to meet you. And yes, the signs, signs is a Wednesday link. Hope to see you again.

  7. What an interesting way to dress up a it!

  8. HI bj! I bet you thought I fell in the toilet and drowned! Darn near did. Anyway, I've missed getting over here and being charmed off my chair.
    I'm so sorry. I'm a terrible blogger friend, Your simple and delicious recipe sounds wonderful. I must make these for Downton Abby night. The kids always come and we watch together. This will make great snacks. You are well? I read clear to the bottom of the page. Your snowey background sure fits the season the east is having. Nothin' but sunshine here! A bit of wind today..and that's the weather report for the evening.
    Big HUGE hugs and love to you.

  9. Again, I am so glad I do not live next door. I would love the friendship and chats, but they would have to be from my bed as I would be so FAT to get through a door. You have the best ya!!

  10. This is a must try! I'll have to tell my daughter about it also she is looking for new things to make for her children.
    Thanks Bj!

  11. Oh my, what a fabulous idea! These look so delicious, and a great way to dress up meatloaf!

  12. Oh BJ....I think you won first prize on this one! Can't wait to make these!!! Thank you for sharing love!

  13. Wow, that looks delicious! I will definitely have to give them a try!

  14. BJ, a clever way to make a meat loaf. It's my hubby's favorite, and he always has some left over for a sandwich.

  15. It looks yummy! I might try it. But odds are - it won't go over well at our house. My husband doesn't eat much bread (which is what makes it look yummy) and I don't eat much meat. I actually have quit liking ANY meat. I can eat Chic Fil A chicken and pepperoni on my pizza and tacos, burritos or other Mexican food - where the meat is somewhat disguised, but if the meat looks or taste like meat, I have to pass.

  16. Wow looks good sounds delicious. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  17. Oh man that sounds good!

    BJ, aren't you the one that told us about Rosa's Cafe? Seems like you mentioned it several years ago. We have one here in Rockwall now and we are eating Taco Tuesday for $3.99 about twice a month. It's more food than I can eat but cheaper than making that meal yourself. :)

  18. I can almost smell it...sounds so good!! Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog Hop! Hope you can visit me Have a great weekend!

  19. BJ, I make tiny little sausage rolls (popular in the UK) but have never thought to make something similar with meatloaf! Aren't you the clever girl! You can call it meatloaf rolls, meatloaf en croute, meatloaf wellington, all kinds of things. Delicious!

  20. bj, these sound wonderful!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  21. You're not helping my diet, bj LOL


  22. This looks so good bj. I will have to keep these in mind for next Christmas when all the family is here. My Son loves snacking before lunch.
    I think I would like the sausage and cheese.
