    • Description
    • Place eggs in a saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, and cool. To cool more quickly, rinse eggs under cold running water. Peel the hard-cooked eggs, and cut in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to a small bowl. Mash egg yolks with mayonnaise, crumbled bacon, cheese and spices. Stir in mustard. Fill egg white halves with the yolk mixture.  Garnish with thinly sliced green onion, shredded cheddar and bacon bits, sprinkle with smoked paprika (or regular paprika) and refrigerate until serving.
  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Michter's US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
  • Description
    • Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is made from a carefully selected mash bill that features the highest quality American corn. It is then matured to the peak of perfection. Truly “small batch” each batch of our US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is batched in a holding tank sized to fit a maximum of twenty full barrels, leaving no margin for “blending out” imperfection and thus necessitating excellence from every barrel. Reflecting the spirit of the Bluegrass State, Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is nuanced, mellow and earthy.
