Onion Cheese Muffins
1-1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
Combine biscuit mix and 1/2 cup cheese in a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk.
In a skillet, saute onion in butter until tender; add to milk mixture. Stir into cheese mixture just
until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Top with sesame seeds and
remaining cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until muffins test done.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
Yield: about 6 muffins
TIP: I like to sprinkle some garlic powder to the batter for more flavor.

Savory Meatballs with Sweet Peppers
5 slices of firm-textured white bread
In a medium bowl, soak bread in milk until soft. Squeeze to remove excess moisture and
crumble into the bowl. Add cheese and eggs , mix well. Add meat, parsley, salt, pepper
and mix until blended. Using about 3 tablespoons of the mixture for each, form into meatballs.
Roll the meatballs in the dry bread crumbs. In a large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat.
Add the meatballs and cook, turning often, until browned all over, 10 to 15 minutes. Use a slotted
spoon to transfer to paper towels to drain. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the skillet. Add
the bell peppers and garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until peppers are softened,
about 10 minutes. Stir in the balsamic vinegar. Return the meatballs to the skillet. Cook, uncovered,
stirring and turning the meatballs often, 5 minutes longer.
