d-E-Licious Recipe {Review and Giveaway}

Do you own a Kindle, Nook or other e-reader? Do you enjoy downloading cookbooks to it, and taking it into the kitchen w/ you? Well, until now, I had never downloaded any e-book, let alone a cookbook! But that was before my friend Jenna at Newlyweds Blog contacted me about reading, cooking from, and reviewing her new e- cookbook, "E-licious"!! Exciting, right??!!


Inside you will find:
  • Over 45 delicious recipes w/ easy to find ingredients ( just right for this everyday mom)
  • 10 sections like: Weeknight Meal, Crock-pot meals, Date Night, Backyard Barbecue and more.
  • Recipes like Strawberry Spongecake, Chicken Divan, Shrimp stir-fry..


The recipe I chose to make for my family was a quick, easy and so cute little burger. We love sliders in our house ( I even own a slider maker-- thank you Billy Mays!) and I'm always looking for new combinations of flavors to pair w/ them. They make a great weeknight supper if you don't have much time (Hence why I made these on a Taekwondo night) or the perfect party snack. These are packed w/ flavor, and the bacon....Oooo the bacon. What doesn't taste better w/ bacon? (I mean it. You could put bacon on a piece of cardboard and I'd try it!) These are definitely something I will making again and again, not to mention trying other yummy things from my first e-cookbook! Thanks Jenna for sharing your wonderful creation w/ me and all the EMM fans! You did a fantastic job and should be so proud!!

Bacon Ranch Mini Burgers directly from E-licious
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1 TBS real bacon pieces
Shredded lettuce
1 tomato, thinly sliced 
Sliced cheese, your choice, cheddar, swiss, etc.
12 ounce package Hawaiian rolls, split and toasted 

Combine ground beef, dressing mix and bacon bits. Shape into 2-inch small patties. Butter grill on medium high heat and grill or pan sauté 2-3 minutes each side. Toast rolls and serve with favorite toppings; cheese, lettuce & tomatoes. Makes 8 mini burgers.

My Changes
I used 2 TBS bacon bits ( I said I love bacon), and sliced a Roma tomato. We also added pickles. For the cheese I chose sliced Mild Cheddar. And instead of Hawaiian Rolls, I used leftover dinner rolls I had in the freezer, didn't toast them and flattened the bottoms a little.
