    I’ve noticed that you post recipes that you enjoy from time to time, so here’s a couple of really good recipes that even my toddler loves eating that you might enjoy:

    Cheesy Taco Stuffed French Bread
    1 lb. ground beef
    1 package taco seasoning
    1 can nacho cheese soup
    2 C. shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 loaf firm French bread (Bakery reduced racks are great for this)

    – Brown ground beef and drain all fat. Cut off just the top of the French bread and pull out inside of loaf, making a shell of about 1 inch thick. While your ground beef is still warm, stir in taco seasoning, cheese soup and bread crumbs.
    – Pour this mixture into loaf shell and spread evenly. Cover with Cheddar cheese and put top of bread loaf back on.
    – Wrap this in foil and bake at 350°F. for approximately 20 minutes. Take out and slice for individual servings.

    * We enjoy the taco meat this way so much that we always include a can of nacho cheese soup to our regular taco mix. There’s also some southwestern variety cheese soups that can be used for a spicier flavor.

    Guy Approved Meatloaf
    1 1/2 pounds ground beef
    2 eggs
    1 onion, chopped
    ½ cup barbecue sauce
    ¾ cup crushed crackers
    1 cup crushed potato chips
    ¾ teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring (We never have this, so I omit it)
    ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the beef, eggs, onion, barbecue sauce, cracker crumbs, potato chips, liquid smoke, ground black pepper, salt, garlic powder and cayenne pepper and mix well. On a lightly greased cookie sheet, shape the mixture into a loaf. Lay the bacon slices across the width of the loaf so that the entire surface is covered. Cover the loaf loosely with foil. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours.

    * If you make this and form it into two thinner loaves (about the size that half of a slice of bacon would fully cover it width-wise), then it takes half the time to cook. We also, occasionally, put slices of cheese under the bacon for added flavor.

    Just thought I’d share!

    I made this yesterday too! When I mixed it up I really didn’t think I was going to like it, but it was really good. It goes on the make it again list.

    mmm, cheesy stuffed taco bread looks great. Thank you! I like meatloaf but I don’t get to make it often because Josh isn’t a big fan. I keep trying to convert him though 😉

    Jennifer, I didn’t think I’d like it either. It just looked odd mixing it up, but it was surprisingly good.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
