  1. Made these as written though I omitted the tomatoes. The Ranch dressing and the cajon seasonings really were the hit with us. They made a great dinner along with some fries, and some soup. Made for your win in Football Pool.
  2. Yum! These were fun and good. I used King's Hawaiian rolls for the buns and regular tomatoes and monterey jack cheese for these. These were easy to make and made a cute presentation. Thanks twissis for sharing this keeper recipe. Congrats on another win in the football pool!
  3. Made these exactly as posted except I cooked them on the charcoal grill. We love that smoky taste! We really enjoyed the cajun seasoning, and I used the ranch on my burgers. DS tried one with ranch, and then switched to regular mayo and ketchup. Great quick little meal or appetizer. Thanks for sharing! Made for your win in Football pool.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
