Doodling in the kitchen

Master Indy is waiting for a transatlantic flight and slave is sitting here bored! So it was time for some “doodling” in the kitchen. Just rummaging through what is available and what strikes the fancy.

Son of a gun if some interesting things didn't come out of it. Try these as finger food for your next card party or guys night out.

1 lbs ground beef
½ lbs sausage (Used pork & bacon – fantastic!)
1 large yellow onion
1 egg yolk
3 tbs soy sauce
S & P to taste
6 slices American cheese
Hawaiian rolls for slider buns.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
In large bowl mix 1 lbs grounded beef with ½ lbs sausage. Stir in the egg yolk with salt and pepper.

Finely chop the yellow onion up with chopper. Spread this in a 9 x 14 baking dish.

Spread the meat out on some wax paper the shape of the dish.

Invert this in an even layer over the onions and press down.

Use the tines of a fork to poke holes throughout the meat. Bake for 30 minutes.

As it bakes, the meat will shrink away from the sides and liquid will accumulate around the edges of pan.
When fully cooked, remove the pan from oven.
Carefully lift this out of the pan and place on a cutting board and cover with cheese.

The cheese will melt while you cut open the rolls for the buns.
This makes about 8 to 10 mini-hamburgers.

Easy pinwheel Roll-ups
Shaves deli turkey
shaved deli ham
Cream cheese spreads:
chive & onion
small tortillas – warmed
½ cup water with 1 tbs cornstarch dissolved in.

These wrap so very fast and make a great finger food.


Lay out some wax paper on the counter.
Open the tortillas.
Alternate spreading some cream cheese spread on the lower half of the tortilla. Half with the chive & onion, half with the pineapple.

Lay our 3 shaved pieces of turkey on the chive & onion and the same of ham on the pineapple. Roll them up tightly and seal with a pastry brush dipped in the cornstarch water.

Wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours to blend and set.
Before serving, carefully slice these rolls into 1 inch thick pinwheel disks. Hold with toothpicks if necessary. Makes great finger food with little effort.

Here's an idea for some music:

These treats are so easy with just what is on hand in your pantry.

Slave is so lucky to have a Master like Master Indy.

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
