Divide mixture into 8 portions and spread on buns, being sure to spread well over edges of buns. Place on broiler rack. Set in oven with top of food 3 " below broiler unit. Broil 8 minutes. Top each pizza with 2 strips of cheese, lay cross cross. Return to oven and broil until cheese melts. YIELD: 8 pizza burgers I hope to get to come to your Resturant in Atlanta sometime

So glad I found this recipe on Paula's website. I originally found it on the Food Network site and tried to make it, but it didn't work. Subsequently found out that the ingredient amount for the mashed potato was incorrect on Food Network. Lots of comments there complaining about the recipe not working. Might want to get them to fix it. I sent a message to them, but it hasn't been fixed yet. Thanks, Charmion

Here is an old fashioned omelet that your family may enjoy. In a medium cast iron frying pan, fry ham slices until slightly brown leave them in the pan and then add the following. In a bowl beat one dozen eggs and One cup of milk. Set aside. In another bowl add one heaping tablespoon of all purpose flour One rounded teaspoon of baking powder dash salt/pepper enough milk to make this to a soupy consistancy (Thin) Pout your egg mixture into this Beat until well mixed. Pour this right over the meat in the frying pan. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and when a butter knife is inserted it comes out clean. The omelet will look like it is sinking it Don't let this fool you it will puff up. If you try this please let me know if you enjoyed it. You can cook whatever you want to put in it if you dont't like ham.

Here is aother version of your Chocolate covered potatoe eggs. 5 Lbs. confectioners sugar 3 small bags of coconut 2 medium potatoes (boiled and mashed) 2 teaspoons vanilla Mix these ingredients all in a bowl. Then add jst enough evaporated milk to make your dough sticky. On a piece of waxed paper put some confectioners sugar on it (enough to roll your dough around so it isn't so sticky and easy to handle.) Shape them into eggs and put in fridge overnight. The next day - dip them in the melted chocolate. Put them on waxed paper to set. Keep in a cool dry place. Enjoy.

I just love watching Paula Deen shows! Went to see Paula in Atlantic City with my husband. Really enjoyed seeing the show. We also drove to Savannah to go to the Lady and Sons. We were treated really well at the restaurant and the staff was very accommodating to my husband and I since I was in a wheelchair at the time. The meal was very good. I was pleased to see that Paula had some of our Servicemen in for lunch on the house and they were so grateful for the hospitality. I was really please to see her taking care of our troops. I also had the chance to visit the store and purchase all of the magazines I did not have in my collection. I believe I have all of them. Really would like to travel to Savannah again so we can do some site seeing and visit Uncle Bubba's too. I will be watching Paula when she visits Rachel Ray Show on April 4th, can't wait! Keep the good things coming. Sincerely, Jane Hall

I use this recipe during the Christmas holidays with some exception...I roll the potatoe mixture out evenly, spread with a thin layer of peanut butter then roll in jelly roll fashion, chill then slice. I also have taken melted chocolate chips and made a thin layer on the peanut butter layer then rolled and chilled and sliced. This is a very sweet confection but so good!!!!
