Bacon & Mushroom Pasta Florentine – Great Deal with the Farmland Bacon Coupon!

Bacon & Mushroom Pasta Florentine

Have you guys noticed that we are a bacon loving family? If I have a package of Farmland bacon on hand, I can turn it into a delicious meal. Whenever I can grab some savings, I am going to take advantage of it. So of course I have already printed my coupon from the Winter Family Savings site.

The Publix coupon offers us a nice discount. Look for the booklet in store or just head over and print your coupon. Once you have your Farmland Bacon, try my recipe for Bacon & Mushroom Pasta Florentine. It’s so simple to put together and is done in no time. You can have dinner on the table in just the time it takes to cook your pasta.

Farmland bacon is slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, they’ve taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique – a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite. We love this bacon and I am always happy to add a pack to my fridge.

Spinach Cheese Swirls Recipe – Great Deals For Your Holiday Gatherings With The Pepperidge Farm Publix Coupon

Spinach Cheese Swirls

I am in holiday mode right now. I mentioned that I have two Thanksgiving dinners over the next two weeks. This week I will be hosting my family so I am finalizing my menu. In addition to the standard fixings, I also have a list of appetizers that I will put out so folks have something to nibble on while I work on dinner.

One of my all time favorite things to cook with is Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. It is super easy to work with and everything I have ever made with it has been delicious! One of my all time favorite things to make are puff pastry swirls. You can add anything you like to the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Then it’s just a matter of rolling it, cutting it and baking it for a simple and tasty appetizer (or snack) that your guests will love.

I thought I’d share a recipe for Spinach Cheese Swirls. This one has no meat, so it’s perfect if you have family members who are vegetarians. Of course if you have meat lovers, a little bit of bacon makes these just delicious.

Did you notice that we have a great Publix coupon in the new All The Trimmings booklet? It’s time to stock our freezers so we’ll be ready for all those hungry guests!

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Turnovers, $3.79, Sheets, $4.59, or Shells, $3.85

Serves: 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • ½ cup shredded Muenster cheese or mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ pkg. of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • 1 pkg. (about 10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Stir the Muenster cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion and garlic powder in a medium bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Brush the pastry sheet with the egg mixture. Top with the cheese mixture and spinach. Starting at a short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into about 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 2 baking sheets. Brush the slices with the egg mixture.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks for 10 minutes.
  5. For best results, make sure to remove as much liquid as you can from the spinach before adding it to the pastry. If it's too wet, it may make the pastry soggy.
  6. For Pesto Swirls, omit all ingredients but the flour and the puff pastry. Unfold the pastry sheet as directed above. Spread ½ of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened, on the pastry sheet to within ½ inch of the edge. Top with 3 tablespoons pesto sauce and sprinkle with ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts. Brush the edge of the pastry sheet with water. Roll up the pastry and proceed as directed above.
  7. For Ham & Broccoli Swirls, omit the spinach, cheeses, onion and garlic powder. Unfold the pastry sheet and brush with the egg mixture as directed above. Spread ½ of an 8-ounce container whipped cream cheese with chives on the pastry sheet. Top with 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well drained and 1 cup finely chopped cooked ham. Proceed as directed above.
  8. For a flavor twist, try a different cheese. Any shredded cheese will work in this recipe.

Bake a One-of-a-Kind with Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats and Save!

Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Cookies

I love this time of the year. The combination of family, friends and food make the holidays so much fun! I usually end up spending a good chunk of time in my kitchen but I really don’t mind at all. Being able to whip up delicious foods to share with those that I love makes that time in the kitchen totally worth it.

While I do have some traditional items that I serve every year, I am always looking for new recipes to share with everyone.  The folks at Quaker® sent me their new Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe, created exclusively for Publix® shoppers, and I couldn’t wait to try it out – we are huge oatmeal fans. Let me tell you, that was the best oatmeal cookie I have ever had. I made a big batch for the baseball party we had a couple of weeks ago, and the plate was empty by the end of the night!

I have a cookie swap coming up in a few weeks, and this cookie is a definite on my list to make. My husband has already put in a request for another batch, so I’ll probably have to double the recipe so that I have enough to share!

 

Banner ad-2Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats are not just for breakfast—they’re the perfect ingredient for all your best holiday baking! Right now you can pick up a great deal at Publix® with the Advantage Buy flyer sale and coupon.
