Luckygardnr, I posted a recipe similar to that earlier this month. Don't they look like you could eat the whole batch in one sitting?

This looks like good football treats--why wait for the Kentucky Derby for hot browns?


Mornay Sauce
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
1/2 cup coarsely grated Gruy�re or Swiss

Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in flour, and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute. (Do not let mixture brown.) Add milk, whisking constantly. Bring to a low boil, and cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes more. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Remove from heat, and stir in cheese. Allow to cool slightly.

1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup finely chopped turkey
1 cup mornay sauce
2 slices bacon, chopped
1 tomato, diced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine finely chopped turkey and mornay sauce. Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with non stick cooking spray. Unroll crescent rolls and press dough into one large rectangle. Cut rectangle into 24 squares. Press dough squares into muffin cups and shape up around the edges. Fill each muffin cup with some of the turkey mixture. Top each bite with some diced tomato, bacon and parmesan cheese. Bake 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

These are really tasty and since I have a lemon tree bearing fruit all year long, I make these a lot. Easy and no artificial ingredients.
Here is the Lemon Brownies recipe......

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Use 9X13 inch pan.
1.5 cups flour
1.5 cups sugar
1 cup real butter- room temperature
4 eggs- room temperature
juice from half a lemon....I use over 1/4 cup
zest from one lemon
(1 tsp. baking powder) I use it but can be left out.

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice and zest as desired. I use lots.

Grease and flour pan.
Put dry ingredients into a bowl. Add butter and mix. ( I use food processor and just pulse it a few times.)
Stir together eggs, juice and zest and stir into batter. ( I use food processor for this, too.) I don't over mix it.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until set.
Original recipes call for cooling the brownies before mixing up glaze but I mix it up after removing from oven and add mixed glaze while still very warm.
