My husband loves this. It's not my recipe (got it from a Kentucky cook-book and a coworker) but it's tasty and easy! It's called Benedictine Spread.

1 cucumber, peeled and finely grated
1 tsp finely grated green onion
1 8-oz cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp salt
2 drops green food coloring

Squeeze excess liquid from grated cucumber. You can wrap it in a couple of layers of paper towel to do so. Combine ingredients in a bowl, mashing with a fork, leaving the food coloring until last. Use on white bread. If you want to make a dip, leave more of the cucumber liquid.

I'll do one healthy, one NOT. Smile

This is a Weight Watchers one we really like. We eat it probably twice a month.

Cheddar-Stuffed Buffalo Burgers

1 pound ground buffalo meat
1 small vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup low-fat shredded cheddar
4 English Muffins (instead of buns)
romaine lettuce
sliced tomato

mix the meat, onion, worchestershire, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Divide the meat mixture into four balls, With your finger make a deep indentation and fill it with one fourth of the cheese. Pinch the meat closed to cover the cheese, and gently flatten into a 3/4 in patty.

toast the english muffins, cook burgers 4-5 minutes per side for medium. Serve with lettuce and tomato.

Toll House Pie.

9 inch pie crust (unbaked)
2 eggs, beaten until frothy
1/2 c flour
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c butter, melted and cooled
1 c chocolate chips

preheat oven to 325 F. Combine beaten egg, sugars, flour, and mix thoroughly. Add melted butter and chocolate chips, mix and pour into pie shell. Bake for one hour until top is golden brown.
