Creamed Corn with Roasted Red Peppers and Bacon

2 T. butter
4 cups corn, fresh or frozen
4 oz light cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup milk
**½ cup roasted red pepper, diced
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
¼ cup green onions (optional)
salt and pepper and cayenne to taste
1. Melt butter over medium heat, add the corn and cream cheese, stir until cream cheese has melted.
2. Mix in the milk, red pepper, bacon and green onions and cook until hot, about 5 minutes.
or... make a day or two ahead, place in baking dish, cover and refrigerate. When ready to serve, remove cover and bake about 15 minutes at 350º.
** How to roast red peppers...
1. Cut the red peppers in half, remove the stem and seeds.
2. Place the red peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side facing down.
3. Preheat the oven to 450º and then change it to broil.
4. Place the baking sheet on the top shelf in the oven and broil until the outer layer of the skin has blackened, about 10-20 minutes.
5. Place the peppers in a zip-lock bag or other sealable container, seal and let them cool until you can handle them, about 20 minutes.
6. Remove the skins from the peppers. The skins should easily "pinch" off.

National Bologna Day

National Bologna Day

Today is National Bologna Day! Bologna is a lunchtime favorite for sandwich lovers across the country. Although this American sausage is spelled bologna, it is commonly pronounced "baloney." In some parts of the country it is also referred to as “jumbo.”
Bologna can be made with beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. It is cooked and smoked with a wonderful bouquet of spices that add to its delicious flavor. There are many different variations including German bologna and Kosher bologna.
Did you know that Americans eat 800 million pounds of bologna annually? Add a slice or two to your sandwich today to celebrate National Bologna Day!
