Woo-Hoo! I’m loving that Franken Pantry is back! LOVE IT!

And I like the idea that it is a month long. Nice!

This pantry rocks. I can cook out of this one all month and never get bored. Great stuff. Nice work guys!

So, for my first entry into this wonderful pantry, I offer:

Pork Chop Fried in Bread Crumbs with Stuffed Tomato, Twice Baked Potato, and Bacon & Garlic Sautéed Spinach.

First, cook some bacon and set aside, save bacon grease!

Bread Crumb Pork Chop
Take some old bread, cut it into cubes, drizzled in oil, and then baked till crunchy. Cool down, then run through a food processor along with Herbs de Province for flavored bread crumbs. Dip the chops in chicken broth (from bouillon cubes) and then dip in bread crumbs. Fry till done, about 4 minutes per side.

Stuffed Tomato
Cook rice (wild card) in water with chicken broth (from bouillon). Once done, drain and set aside. Chop onion and set aside. Break Italian sausage out of casing and crumble. In a pan, sauté crumbled Italian Sausage till done. Drain. Add cooked rice and chopped onion to sausage till warm. Cover and set aside.

Cut top from tomato and scoop out the insides. Stuff with rice mixture and bake at 400 till bubbly and tomato is soft. Top with cheese and bake 5 minutes more. Set aside.

Twice Baked Potato
Do this: http://www.netcookingtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13186

Now load the mash with crumbled bacon, cheese, chives (onion), and a touch of chicken stock (from bouillon). Mash well and load the potato. Bake till browning as shown in link above.

Spinach Sautéed with Bacon and Garlic
In a large pan, add some bacon grease. Once hot, add minced garlic. Stir on medium high heat till fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add fresh spinach. Sauté till soft. About 2 minutes. Serve.

Thanks Karen! Dad always said the biggest commodity is time. Never got that when I was 16, but now, I’m finally seeing his point full on!!

It’s good to see you and the rest of the gang still here, and a big round of applause should go out to LethatGTS for getting Franken Pantry going again.

And I have to admit, this pantry is awesome! I can cook from this for quite some time!! Great job all!!!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I have to say that this is one of the very best Franken Pantry meals I have cooked. In fact, it is one of the tastiest things I have EVER cooked: Zuppa Toscana. I wish I could have taken pictures as I made it (I love the way you do that, Keltin), but my camera isn't working well, and I also got interrupted while preparing dinner by a drop in guest and a couple of phone calls. It has Italian sausage, olive oil, bacon, garlic, onion, spinach, bouillon, potatoes, parmesan cheese, basil and a little cream. And I also made some bread, so I included that picture as well. Trust me. This is good stuff. I'll write up the recipe and post it if anyone is interested.

My cat Millie likes to walk around on my laptop keyboard - she even ordered an Aretha Franklin album from iTunes once! I don't know how she did it...
