    2 lbs. spaghetti - bring water to boil, let'er rip.
    1 lb bacon - cut in small pieces - fry to crispy; do NOT get rid of the grease (seriously)
    8 eggs well beaten, salt and pepper, mix in...
    8-12 oz fine shredded cheddar

    when spaghetti is al dente, drain, put back in pot...

    pour in egg mixture, begin to mix while adding the bacon chips and some of the bacon grease...

    mix well. salt and pepper to taste.

    "Yellow Spaghetti"...an American-ized Italian USMilitary dinner. Cheap and easy.

    One of my favorite breakfasts was at a Bed and Breakfast called Seven on Shelter Island. It was also one of the few times we had sex this summer. image.jpg

    Sounds good, might have to try that.

    My chilli recipe:

    (amounts are approximate, I don't really measure stuff, I just chuck it all in and adjust as I see fit as I taste as I go along ;) )

    1kg beef mince (2.2lbs of ground beef for the americans)
    2 white onions diced
    2 red/yellow bell peppers chopped into 1/4" squares
    300-400 ml of good dark english ale (Hobgoblin/Old Peculiar etc. but any nice dark malty ale will do)
    4 Beef Stock cubes
    2 tsp english mustard powder
    Good pinch of sea salt
    good crunch of freshly ground black pepper
    4 tsp ground cumin
    2 cinnamon sticks
    2 fresh bay leaves
    2 tsp paprika ( or 1 plain, 1 smoked if you like/have available)
    2-3 tsp of hot chilli powder (depending on how hot you like it)
    your choice of fresh chilli's diced very finely, I like 3-4 Scotch Bonnets for some real fire
    25ml Worcestershire sauce or (Hendersons Relish if from oop north)
    3-4 tsp of bournville cocoa powder
    1 tin chopped tomatoes
    1 tin kidney beans (or your choice of bean/starchy produce, potatoes cut into cube make a surprisingly good substitute).
    2-3 tbsp tomato purée concentrate.

    Brown the mince in a little bit of light oil (sunflower/vegetable/rape seed)
    When browned, keep the liquor from the mince in the pan and sprinkle enough plain flour over the mince to soak up the juices so that its a dry mix.
    Add the beer
    add the spices (stock cube, mustard, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, cocoa) and stir into the mince/beer mix
    add the bay leaves & cinnamon sticks - stir in
    add the tomatoes, onions, kidney beans (or whatever other veg you have) - stir
    add the Worcestershire sauce & tomato puree - stir
    add the onions and bell peppers - stir
    add anything I've forgot to list and stir in :p
    keep on a low heat - covered - for about 40-50 minutes until the veg is tender and the mince well cooked.

    It should be quite a thick consistency, but keep stirring every few minutes to stop it sticking to the bottom of the pan and if you think its too dry add more water/beer (a splash red wine doesn't do bad either if you only need 100ml or so to get where you want it to be) as you see fit but it should be very thick with the sauce merely holding everything together.

    It tastes better the longer you leave it on the heat so give it chance to mature before adding any spices/condiments to adjust flavour. remove the bay leaves & cinnamon sticks when you dish up.

    I tend to make this into several batches for the freezer for quick meals when I get in from work. Defrost/reheat in the microwave and a good winter warmer of a meal is excellent with a good cold lager :)

    Here's a homemade sloppy joes recipe I use. :cool::)

    Sloppy Helldawg burgers

    2 lb. ground angus Chuck
    5 fresh sweet peppers
    1/2 medium size sweet onion
    5oz of ketchup
    2 oz sweet baby rays bbq sauce
    tsp of onion salt
    tbsp of paprika
    tbsp salt
    2 grinds of fresh ground ghost peppers


    Chop and dice peppers and onions
    Brown beef, drain grease and continue to cook on medium
    add peppers and onions and all spices and keep stirred in pan for about 3 to 5 minutes, be sure to keep vent fan running the ghost peppers will blind you otherwise. :p;)
    Add ketchup and sweet baby rays and cover pan and simmer on medium low for about 10 minutes.
    Serve on hamburger buns and top with shredded cheddar if you like. Some good mofo shit now! Damn!! :D

    You can adjust the heat of the BBQ by cutting the ghost peppers back, but myself think thats what sets this seperate from conventional sloppy joes. I have used roasted NM peppers in place of Ghost and that fucking rocks as well. :)
