My friend Debbie is a great cook and recently shared a couple of recipes with me. I thought you would enjoy.

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
8 slices bacon - slightly sautéed and chopped
¾ tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce

Mix all ingredients together. Pile on slices of French baguette and cook @ 350 for 15 – 20 mins.

Manhattan Clam Chowder

5 slices bacon
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. chopped celery
¼ c. finely chopped green pepper
3 c. water

1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. thyme leaves crushed
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 cans minced clams (drained)
16 oz. can un-drained tomatoes

In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from saucepan reserving 2 tbs. drippings.
Crumble bacon and add back to the pan along with the onions, celery, and green peppers. Add all other ingredients, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 35 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaf. Heat gently, stirring frequently, do not boil.
