The Boyfriend watches an obscene amount of football on Sunday’s. I, however, don’t really watch football at all. Something about fantasy football…blah blah blah…he has to beat his friend…blah blah blah…whatever!

Football Sunday’s are a time for me to relax, surf the internet, and whip up some interesting creations for him to try during the game. Boyfriends are great guinea pigs 🙂

On the menu for today were two of his favorite food items ever put together into one dish!

Biscuits and hot dogs!

(Good thing his favorite foods aren’t something like pickles and ice-cream. Ewww, not a good combination.)

Here’s what you do…

I was feeling adventurous the other night thinking of what to throw together for dinner.

Didn’t want the same mundane roasted chicken or ground turkey with chili seasoning, I was looking for something a little more satisfying.  Since I had lean ground beef thawed in the refrigerator, I started to look for recipes that I would be able to make with it.  I found a recipe titled “Cheeseburger Meatloaf.”  This caught my attention and required ingredients I already had on-hand, so it was a winner.  Now, considering I was not cooking for a crowd, I halved the recipe and made a few changes and was completely blown away by the results!

It was the most juicy, soft, cheesy, caramelized meatloaf I’d ever had!

I’ll set the scene, it’s pouring rain outside,flickering  lighting and roaring thunder, lame talk shows on  TV, totally not in the mood to run to the grocery store.

What do I whip up for lunch?

I curl up with my laptop trying to browse through what seems like zillions of recipes, most requiring a plethora of ingredients I don’t already have in my pantry.

Then it happened, DING DING DING, I found a winner!

Black bean veggie burgers.

I mean, a can of black beans, some spices, a few chopped veggies, and a binding agent (such as bread crumbs).  I almost wondered how tasty they could be considering their simplicity.  I quickly got to work to find out.
