Strawberry Bruschetta

24 slices French baguette
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
1/4 cup white sugar, or as needed
Preheat your oven's broiler. Spread a thin layer of butter on each slice of bread. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
Place bread under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, just until lightly toasted. Spoon some chopped strawberries onto each piece of toast, then sprinkle sugar over the strawberries.
Place under the broiler again until sugar is caramelized, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Fried Green Tomatoes
My husband likes to keep this simple so this is his way of making fried green tomatoes.
2 green tomatoes- sliced
1 cup flour
oil for frying
sal and pepper
1 egg
Heat oil in pan on medium heat.
In a small bowl whisk egg. In another small bowl mix salt, pepper and flour. 
Dip tomato slices first in egg mixture, then in flour mixture. Carefully place slices in hot oil and cook until browned on both sides.
Mac & Cheese Muffins
1 box mac & cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Parmesan cheese
Shredded cheese or cheese singles
Bacon bits (optional)
Ranch dressing (optional but gives it great flavor)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin tins.

Make mac & cheese as directed on box.
Add bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, shredded cheese, ranch dressing & bacon bits to the mac & cheese mix.
Add mac & cheese to muffin tins.
Add some cheese ontop.
Bake until cheese is melted and edges are cripsy.

Biscuit Dogs

1 can refridgerated biscuits
5 hotdogs
5 slices of cheese

Grill or boil or however you like to cook your hotdogs then cut in half.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Unwrap cheese singles and cut in half,
Flatten biscuits a little. Lay cheese on biscuit, add hotdog ontop then wrap biscuit. Put on cookie sheet with the overlap of biscuit faced down, so you don't have to use tooth picks.
Bake in preheated oven until biscuits are brown, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Sorullitos De Maiz

1¼ cups corn meal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
2 cups water
1 cup shredded cheese (in Puerto Rico they use Queso de Bola) -  I don't add this.

In a medium saucepan boil the water. Add salt, sugar, and corn meal and stir until it forms a soft ball that separates from the sides of the pot. Remove from heat. Add the cheese and stir. Cover with clean dishcloth and wait 5 minutes or so. Then form the sorullitos by scoping about a heaping teaspoon, forming a ball first, then rolling on your hand into a sorullito. Fry in plenty of oil.

We also make a simple sauce for dipping. I never measure the amounts for each ingredient.
