1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

Roasted red peppers add sweetness and color, and provide more than half the recommended-daily intake of immunity-boosting vitamin C. Basil, black olives, zucchini, provolone cheese, olive oil, and a dab of mayo are the other flavorful ingredients sandwiched between two pieces of rustic bread.
– Prep Time: 20 minutes
– Cook Time: 4 minutes
– Yield: 4
Ingredients
– 1/2 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil, divided
– 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
– 2 tablespoons finely chopped oil-cured black olives
– 8 slices rustic whole grain bread (about 1/2-inch thick)
– 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
– 4 slices provolone cheese
– 1 jar (7 oz.) roasted red peppers, drained and sliced
Preparation
1. Combine 1/4 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil, basil with olives in small bowl. Evenly spread bread slices with mayonnaise mixture, then layer 4 bread slices with zucchini, provolone, peppers and bacon. Top with remaining 4 bread slices.
2. Spread remaining Mayonnaise on outside of sandwiches and cook in 12-inch nonstick skillet or grill pan over medium heat, turning once, until sandwiches are golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.

BAILEY’S IRISH CREAM MINI-CHEESECAKES

Whether for  a dinner party or just a treat, who couldn’t resist the great taste of Bailey’s Irish Cream Mini-Cheesecakes!  Enjoy!

For the crust:
16 whole Oreo cookies, finely ground in food processor
3 Tbs unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:
2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups sour cream
3 Tbs Bailey’s Irish Cream
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled slightly

For the ganache glaze:
8 oz semisweet chocolate, finely chopped (or 1 cup mini chocolate chips)
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp instant coffee granules

baileys-irish-cream-chocolate-cheese-cakePreheat oven to 350°. Combine the ground Oreos and melted butter into a bowl until well blended. Spoon into 24 mini cheesecake cups.* Press into the bottom of each cup so the crust is flat. Partially bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven.

Using a stand or hand held mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in sour cream, Bailey’s, and vanilla. Spoon the batter over each crust, filling to a little less than half of the cup. Add the melted chocolate to the remaining batter. Spoon the chocolate mixture over the cheesecake batter, filling to about 3/4 full. Bake for 25-28 minutes until cheesecake is cooked through. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Place a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Add the chocolate, cream and the coffee. Stir occasionally and heat just until chocolate has melted.

Once the cheesecakes have cooled, loosen the edges with a plastic knife and remove them from the pan by pushing up on the removable bottoms. Arrange them on a piece of waxed paper and spoon the glaze over the top.

*Mini muffin tins will not work with this recipe. Use a mini cheesecake tin with removable bottoms.
