Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich
Very Good 4.7/5
(15 ratings)

If you time it so that the egg and the muffin are done at the same time, the heat between them will perfectly melt the cheese for this drippy sandwich that easily rivals your fast food service.

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers
Very Good 4.0/5
(2 ratings)

Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off? Instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses--Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well.

heart healthy, and loaded with antioxidants!! boiling your pasta in green tea gives you similar benefits to drinking it, and gives the pasta a really nice flavor, almost like spinach pasta. to reduce the calories even more, grill the chicken rather then pan frying

When my mother told me she makes this recipe for lunch every day I didn't think it sounded too delicious. But then she made it for me and... yummy... the combination of flavors is surprisingly delicious and very healthy! Eat as a snack or in larger portions for lunch.
