He Put A Potato On A Wooden Skewer…When He Started Cutting It, I Was SO Confused

Baked potatoes are great. Throw some butter and salt on ’em right when they come out of the oven, and I’ve reached carby nirvana. But then one man posed the question, “How can you make baked potatoes better?” and his answer is beautifully crispy and all-around perfect.

Just grab a wooden skewer and get ready to drool:

These spirals are everything. Pass the ketchup, please!

These Doughy Biscuits Are Hiding A Meaty And Cheesy Secret — Oh. My. God.

Personally, I don’t understand why people would choose not to eat gluten.

I mean, me? I can’t get enough of it! For starters, tons of foods that I love have gluten in them. And then there’s the whole thing — science — that says gluten isn’t actually bad for you (unless, of course, you have Celiac disease). If anything, you’re just causing yourself annoyance by having to pay for special gluten-free foods.

But back to the good stuff…this recipe!

When you combine biscuits (in all their gluten-y goodness), ground beef, cheese, and bacon, you’re bound to have a mouth party by the end. Just watch — and try not to drool all over yourself.

First you’re going to need mini biscuit dough. These geniuses used 24 biscuits.

Roll out some ground beef and then cut it into one-inch squares.

Cook it up!

Cook a pound of bacon too, because…well, bacon.

Flatten the biscuits out…these guys are about to get stuffed!

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95db1a193”, auid: “537251602” });

Add little chunks of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

On goes little hamburger pieces.

And the bacon!

Repeat, finishing off with a squirt of ketchup.

Fold in the edges to make little balls…

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95db1a303”, auid: “537251604” });

And load them into a cast-iron skillet — bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Grind up the extra bacon and beef in a food processor.

When they look like this, take ’em out of the oven.

Top with cheese, beef, bacon, and cheese — in that order.

Put the delicious dish back in at 400 for ten more minutes.

Serve with ketchup, mustard, mayo, or whatever your heart desires.

If your reaction is something like this, we don’t blame you.

It’s totally warranted.

This Dessert Is Epically Delicious…And You Don’t Even Need To Bake It

If you’re like me, your oven acts more like an extra storage space for your cramped kitchen than it does a functional home appliance. Sure, sometimes I clear it out for the ambitious pie or baked chicken, but those things take so long to make and require so much effort.

But what if I told you that there’s a simple dessert you can make in minutes…without ever touching an oven?

Yes, friends, this no-bake cheesecake is a thing of beauty and it’s so easy to whip up!

I know what you’re thinking — you never knew cheesecake was so easy to make!

What She Does With 7-Up Is Pure Culinary Genius (And It Looks So Delicious)

Okay, okay, soda might not be great for you, but you can’t deny that it’s delicious, right?

Sitting out by the pool with an ice-cold glass of fizzy goodness is basically the definition of refreshing. Speaking of foods that aren’t really healthy but taste way too good, let’s talk about cake for a second. Actually, let’s talk about soda and cake. If these two treats are high on your “gotta have this right now” list, this amazing recipe is the one for you.

I really need to learn how to bake, because this is just too good to miss.

This Hero Loves Bacon So Much, He Decided To Cure His Own

How much do you love bacon?

No matter how many meals you arbitrarily sprinkle it on, you’re never going to love the savory topper more than Reddit user fourthwardco. When he bought 8.6 pounds of pork, he decided to actually cure his own bacon.

As he walks us through the steps, you’ll realize the difference between cooking bacon and curing it is like the difference between babysitting a child and having one of your own. And rest assured, this guy loves his little bacon baby!

When fourthwardco bought this 8.6-pound slab of pork at his local butcher, he knew exactly what to do with it.

First, he lathered his prize in a layer of pure maple syrup.

Next, he made his own rub with pink curing salt, kosher salt, brown sugar, and ground pepper.

He made sure to spread that deliciousness all over the meat on both sides.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95a7e1a27”, auid: “537251602” });

Now for the actual curing…fourthwardco put the meat into a 2.5-gallon Ziploc bag (yes, apparently those exist) and stored it in an aluminum pan, in case it leaked.

For seven days, he let the juices marinate the meat, flipping it over at least once a day to redistribute the seasoning.

Finally, it was smokin’ time! The meat went onto a smoker with 200°F coals and chunks of hickory wood for extra flavor. The smoking process took around four hours.

When the meat reached an internal temperature of 150°F, it was ready.

He put the pork back in the fridge overnight and sliced it up the next day.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95a7e1bab”, auid: “537251604” });

Ahhhh the good stuff…

It may have taken over a week to make a BLT, but I think we can all agree it was SO worth it.

And that’s how bacon babies are made, ladies and gentlemen.

Honestly, I’d eat that bacon seasoning on its own. I may have a bacon problem.

He Put Mashed Potatoes In His Hand, But What He Places Inside Will Make You Drool

Mashed potatoes are great on their own — I mean, what’s not to love about creamy, mashed-up carbs?! If you add garlic or gravy to the mix? Forget about it…you’ve got me for the whole afternoon.

But what happens when you make mashed potatoes into finger food? I’d be inclined to say you’re crazy, but it gets better

If you’re prone to drooling, get a napkin before hitting play.

By Mixing Peanut Butter And Eggs Together, You Can Make These Delicious Cookies FAST!

With winter comes the very real possibility of getting snowed in. Much of the east coast just experienced that with Winter Storm Jonas. This can leave you feeling restless and bored, so if you start to get cabin fever, you might want to find something to do.

What better way to pass the time than by making some delicious cookies? These suckers take very little time to whip up and only have a few ingredients. Next thing you know, you’re going to be chowing down on chocolate chip cookies that don’t even require an oven!

Who wants to wait 20 to 30 minutes for cookies to come out of the oven when you can get near-instant gratification right from your microwave?!

Bring it on, snow.

19 Recipes That All Use One Unexpected Ingredient — YUM

There’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot day, but any other time of the year, you’re more likely to find me with a spirit in my hand than a lager.

I Need These Mini Deep-Dish Pizzas In My Life, And So Do You

If there’s one problem with pizza (there honestly isn’t), it would be that when you order it, you sometimes get way too much for one human to handle.

It satiates my cravings without making me feel like a pizza monster is going to burst out of my stomach like something in Alien. Sound like a recipe you need in your life? Check this out.
