Copycat Bell Beefer Burger

A long time ago when I was growing up with Pebbles Flintstone, Taco Bell had a burger on their menu. The burger was originally called The Bellburger but was later changed to Bell Beefer and Bell Beefer Supreme. The Supreme version had shredded lettuce, cheese and tomatoes on it. This was on the menu from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. I loved this burger. It was taco meat, diced onions, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, cheese and mild taco sauce. I was gifted a bottle of Red Duck Mild Organic Taco Sauce. I am going to be very honest, this is my favorite taco sauce I have ever tasted. I have already ordered 5 more bottles. Yes, it is that good! The Bell Beefer kind of resembles a Sloppy Joe but so much better.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds of ground chuck

1 cup onions, diced

Garlic salt and pepper

1 packet taco seasoning

1 8 ounce bottle of Red Duck Organic Taco Sauce*, or your favorite taco sauce

Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated (optional)

Iceberg lettuce, shredded (optional)

Tomatoes, diced (optional)

Place beef in a skillet. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Add diced onions and cook until meat is no longer pink. The onions should be translucent. Drain off all fat. Sprinkle taco seasoning over beef and combine. (DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE TACO SEASONING PACKET) Pour one bottle of Red Duck Mild Organic Taco Sauce and stir to combine. Lower heat and simmer thoroughly about 10 minutes. Serve on buns, add cheese, lettuce and tomatoes if desired. Enjoy! Espero que te guste! #ad #redDuck #sponsored

Just cheese please.

*redDuck can be found on Amazon or ordered directly from the redDuck website. I ordered off their website and the shipping was free. If you are lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, you can probably find it in your grocery stores.

My Sinful Sundae

This was my dessert of choice from that Australian Steakhouse chain. It was called Sidney, only they spelled my name wrong. It should have been Cydnee’s Sinful Sundae. Sadly, it’s no longer on the menu. Today I have recreated this sundae and paired it with my friend Candi from The Devilish Dish’s Red Wine Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge Sauce.

Ingredients:
Vanilla Ice Cream (I used 3 scoops)
1 cup coconut, toasted*
Strawberries, sliced
Hot chocolate sauce, see recipe link
Whip cream

*Toast Coconut on a microwave safe plate in microwave. Cook for 30 second intervals until golden brown and toasty. Set aside and let cool completely.

Scoop ice cream into round balls. Roll in cooled toasted coconut and place in bowl. Add sliced strawberries. Add warm chocolate sauce on top of ice cream and strawberries. Top with whipped cream and a whole strawberry. Garnish with more toasted coconut. Enjoy!

Now if you want to be very naughty, put one of my Breakfast Brownies underneath the scoops of ice cream and continue building this decadent sundae.

Aussie Dipping Sauce

This is a copy cat recipe from the Australian steakhouse chain restaurant. This multipurpose sauce can be used with so many different things. I have used it on The Big O Burger and it’s perfect with onion rings, fries, veggies or anything you want. I have linked The Big O Burger and Crumbs In My Mustachio’s Beer Battered Onion Rings with this sauce. My burger and sauce are pictured with Crumbs In My Mustachio’s recipe for her onion rings.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of ketchup
1 1/2 Tablespoons of creamy horseradish, I used Inglehoffers
One pinch of salt
One pinch of black pepper
1/8 teaspoon of chili powder, or more for more heat
1/8 teaspoon of dried oregano

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Best if made a day ahead. Store in refrigerator.

I paired this sauce with Crumbs In My Mustachios Beer Batter Onion Rings and The Big O Burger.
