Homemade Bird Dog Pizza Recipe

Homemade Bird Dog Pizza Recipe

This Bird Dog Pizza recipe is the basic Bird Dog recipe in pizza form. The Bird Dog pizza is also available from a local pizza restaurant. It’s our son’s favorite one to order. He orders it every single time we get take out, and every single time I sort of cringed thinking how odd it must be. That is until I tried it myself during that one very satisfying homemade pizza night a couple of weeks ago. No more cringing from me. No sirree bobtail. I couldn’t believe how unbelievable the combination was in pizza form. We were all fighting for the last piece.

Honestly, I get bored with lunch. The same old, same old, well … it gets old. But it doesn’t have to. Enter the White Bean Cheddar Melt, a recipe I discovered at Bush’s Beans. Yep, white beans in a sandwich. I know. It sounds a little different, but different is good, right? Especially with this sandwich.

Grilled Cheese with Gouda, Roasted Mushrooms and Onions

I could go on and waste your time rambling on about how so wonderfully scrumptious this Grilled Cheese with Gouda, Roasted Mushrooms and Onions sandwich was that it didn’t even make it to the table. But I’d rather just tell you to get you some bread, gouda, mushrooms and onions, and get to it.

Beer Cheese Soup

Beer Cheese Soup - a lighter version of the decadent comfort food

The soup came together in no time and disappeared just as fast. Although this lighter version uses a reduced-fat milk instead of heavy cream, it was still mighty rich and creamy. Serve alongside a salad, and/or a baked potato for the perfect lunch, or low-key weeknight meal. I can’t see how you’d be disappointed with this one. It’s one totally satisfying soup.

Easy Bean and Cheese Flatbread


This past year I’ve kept ingredients on hand for making cracker pizzas: crispy individual pizzas that are baked in no time. The kids have really enjoyed making their own versions for dinner or even as a great after school snack. I revised the Easy Bean and Cheese Flatbread recipe from Bush’s Beans to use the thinner tortillas we use for the cracker pizzas.

Poached Eggs with Gouda on Toast


Poached Eggs with Gouda on Toast. Nothing fancy. Nothing especially interesting. But sometimes, those are the best kind of dishes ever. And this is that sometime. Try it. You’ll like it. It’s really good. Good, I tell ya.
