I'm trying to cook smaller portions to control leftovers, that being said the ingredients I used made enough to feed 4, especially if a salad and bread is provided

 I have 5 chicken tenders
 half a large sweet potato diced and frozen
 half a zuccini diced and frozen
 2 small summer squash diced and frozen
 4-5 small red potatoes diced
  half a medium red onion diced
 7 slices of low sat bacon
 1/2 a block of sharp chedder cheese, shredded

Step 2: The spice of life

My one dietary extragavance is the bacon. However my local grocery had this low sodium bacon on sale, 2lbs for $4.00, each pound got broken into 5 servings and individually bagged before being frozen. Remove as much air as possible to prevent freezer burn and place the indivual bags in a main bag.

 to cook the bacon I decided to get creative  and bake it but I needed a way to raise the bacon so it drained, I dug out a slotted rack that almost fit the top of the baking dish and even leaned a little to help drainage, I added a 1/4 cup of water and 2 teaspoons of liquid smoke laid the bacon on the rack and baked  at 350f until almost done

Thank you for stopping in and leaving a comment
Is there anything that lurks in your refrigerator, freezer, and/or pantry that you can't whip up into a deliciously unhealthy and filling meal for four?

Sorry General, not at the moment but fear not, there are several new recipes, that my cardiologist wouldn't approve of, in the works. This got rave reviews from my dining companions, although, I thought it could use some heat, but then I'm never far from a bottle or 12 of hot sauce..........
