The first recipe is from Lorry Evans. She serves it with shredded pork barbecue sandwiches.

6 tsp. chili powder
3 tsp. spicy brown mustard
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 to 5 drops hot pepper sauce
3-1/2 lbs. boneless pork, cut into 1-inch cubes
12 to 14 hamburger buns, split

Cheesy Brussels sprouts casserole
2 lbs. Brussels sprouts halved (fresh or frozen and thawed)
1/2 lb. bacon, crumbled
1 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 C fontina cheese, grated
1 C heavy cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. fresh thyme, minced
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss Brussels sprouts in olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place them in a large baking dish and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until semi-softened. While Brussels sprouts are roasting, cook bacon in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat until crispy.
Drain off fat and add garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant, and season with fresh thyme. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and heavy cream, then stir in cheeses. Remove Brussels sprouts from oven and add 3/4 bacon and garlic to the baking dish. Pour cheese mixture over top and stir everything together, then top with remaining bacon.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees, return baking dish to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and just set. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before serving.
Thought – When people see a litter box they say, “Oh, do you have a cat?” Just once I’d like to say, “No, it’s for company.”
