A Delicious Burger

Took one pound of ground beef (85/15) and added ca. 15 tbs of Sparky’s sauce, 3 cloves of minced garlic, and some salt and pepper. Mixed this thoroughly. Made three patties and grilled them. To this grilled burger I added a bit more sauce, a slice of cheddar cheese, and an over-medium egg. Served this burger on a toasted croissant.

Chicken Breast Bake

Bowl 1 — Two eggs with about 3 tablespoons of water, whipped together with a fork.

Bowl 2 — 1 cup of bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. All ingredients mixed together.

Two skinless/boneless chicken breasts were rinsed under cold water and pated dry with a paper towel. Each breast was dipped in the egg wash, and then in the bread crumb mixture. This gives a nice breading for the beasts. Each breast was pan-fried (vegetable oil) on each side for about one minute, just until golden brown on the surface. Then the breasts were transferred to a baking dish and baked at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes. The baking dish was removed from the oven and about 10 tablespoons of Sparky’s sauce was placed on the breasts. The breasts were cooked for another 5 minutes to get the Sparky’s sauce hot and bubbling! Remove from the oven and enjoy. We paired these delicious breasts with sweet corn and a baked potato.

Scottish Eggs Dipped in Sparkys

6 Hard boiled eggs
1 tube Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage
1 cup fine cracker crumbs

You can use any type of crumbs, like a flavored shake n bake or whatever depending on your flavor.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

Take the sausage and make little patties and flatten out real thin. Then wrap the patty around the egg making sure the egg is totally covered. Then roll in the crumbs to coat. Do this to all 6 eggs and that should use up one of those tubes of sausage.

Place a cookie cooling rack inside of a bigger pan that has sides around a 1/2 inch high. This way the sausage grease drips off but doesn’t make your Scottish egg soggy.

Place in oven for 20 minutes then raise oven temp to 400 Degrees for another 10 minutes. Temp of sausage should be 165 degrees now.

Dig in and deep each bite into Sparkys wing sauce for a great breakfast.

I would imagine you could put the sausage in a bowl and add a 1/4 cup of Sparkys sauce and maybe some jalapeno slices to really give that sausage a little kick before wrapping around egg.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza/Sparky’s Style

This recipe is made to fit in a 17x12x1inch deep cookie sheet pan.

1 Jar Sparky Sauce
1 box Chef Boyardee Pizza Kit
2 Chicken Breasts depending on size or number of pizzas made.
1 large package Shredded Colby jack and Monterrey Cheese(Goes great with pizza, trust me)
Ground Pepper
Extra virgin olive oil

Cook chicken:
First off begin preparation of the chicken. I like to slow roast mine in a crockpot, but you can also boil if you lack time. I prefer the slow roast because it comes out more tender.

Prepare Dough:
When the chicken is close to being done mix the dough both packages from the Chef Boyardee pizza kit. Drizzle it slightly with olive oil(slightly), cover and let sit for time recommended.

Shred Chicken:
Take chicken out of crockpot or pot it’s boiling in, and shred it as much as possible. Again, using a crockpot makes this much easier and tastier in my opinion.

Preheat oven to 385degrees

Take cookie sheet and lightly brush it with Olive oil.

Take out dough, roll it out on to cookie sheet, making sure the edges stick up above the rest of the dough.
Poke holes with fork.
LIGHTLY brush olive oil on top of dough and edge crusts.

Now spread Sparkys sauce on top of dough, get a pretty decent layer, just not TOO thick. Remember you can always dip your pizza into more!!

Take chicken and spread it all over the pizza, inch by inch. This should use most of your chicken, if not all.

Then take Colby and Moterrey Jack cheese, and put it on top of chicken, make it heavy, as it will melt and settle amongst the chicken. This helps to keep everything together nice and tight.

Sprinkle Ground Pepper on top for extra flavor.

Put in oven for about 15 min. or until cheese is golden, lighty brown, and dough crust is brownish.

Take it out, and let it sit for about 10 min or so. It will need a little time to cool and form together.

From there cut up and serve. Serve with ranch, or even Blue Cheese, or some more Sparky’s. ENJOY!!! Best pizza I’ve ever had.
