My hands down favorite dinner is Pasta Alfredo with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

I also love to make flatbreads and pizzas for dinner like this Queso Pizza with Bacon and Corn

Dixie Mac & Cheese Poppers are a cinch to make with using prepared mac & cheese~ just fill jalapenos or baby sweet peppers with mac and cheese, roll a strip of bacon around and pop them on the grill or in the oven

 This is a perfect side dish for grilled meat, chicken or shrimp
