Bacon Potato Pie Recipe
1 lb bacon, thick-sliced and lean
1 lb baking potatoes
1/2 lb cheddar cheese
Cut the bacon slices into square pieces. Fry the pieces until
well-cooked, then drain on paper towels.
Peel the potatoes, then grate them. To prevent the grated potatoes
from discoloring while you prepare the other ingredients, you can put
them into a bowl of cold water. When you're ready to use them, be
sure to drain well and squeeze them dry.
Grate the cheese. Mince the onion. Butter a 9x13 inch shallow baking
dish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients and
stir. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and bake in the preheated
oven for about 45 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked. Serve hot,
warm or at room temperature.
* A brunch casserole with potatoes, eggs, bacon and cheese -- This
is a very easy brunch dish, similar to a fritatta in texture, but
full of traditional breakfast ingredients. The recipe comes from a
cookbook published by the _Contra Costa (California) Times_
newspaper, called "Tastes of the Times." Yield: Serves 4-6.
* It really does make a difference if you use good meaty bacon for
this. I find the best bacon at my local butcher shop.
* You can prepare part of this ahead. I think egg dishes are better
if they haven't been refrigerated. So if you want to work ahead, you
can cook the bacon, grate the cheese and potatoes and mince the onion
the night before. Store all these things separately in the
refrigerator, covering the potatoes with water. Then in the morning
just mix it all up and bake it.
: Difficulty: moderate (tedious).
: Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking and cooling.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* You can create really great smoothies using low carb yogurt.
Admittedly, itís not technically cooking, but if you really love smoothies you can make them with low carb yogurt and fruit. Clearly, you should make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use all of the fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
