Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip

I found a Bacon, Cheddar Ranch dip at Trader Joe's a couple of weeks ago.  I demolished the giant container almost immediately.  So this week I decided I could totally make it myself.

1 cup shredded cheddar

Mix all ingredients together and chill for at least one hour before serving.

Bacon & Cheddar Egg Salad

I didn't know I liked egg salad until today.  I'll never eat another one.  This is amazing.  I mean, duh, of course you should pair bacon and cheese with eggs and mayo.  So simple!  I'm not putting it on a sandwich, but you could pretty much eat it for any meal and even on a salad.  Amazing!

6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 tsp dried minced onion
3 bacon strips, fried and crumbled
1/2 tsp salt (optional-I left it out)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded cheddar

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until creamy and well combined.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Parmesan Chicken Wings

I've been watching a lot of "Bar Rescue" lately and almost every show has wings.  I've been craving buffalo wings, but I didn't have any hot sauce (I KNOW, don't worry, I've shopped).  This came out so well and I can't believe I've never posted them before.  Enjoy!

Parmesan Chicken Wings

1 cup grated parmesan
2 tbsp parsley
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 stick butter, melted
1 lb chicken wings

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and a baking rack.  Spray with non-stick cooking spray.   In a bag, combine all ingredients but chicken and butter.  Shake to toss and combine.  Pour melted butter in a small bowl.  Dip chicken pieces in butter and put in the bag.  Shake to coat.  Place on the baking sheet and repeat until finished. Bake for 45 minutes.
