1    pound   bulk sage-flavor pork sausage (casings removed, if present)
3/4   cup   chopped red sweet pepper (1 medium)
1/2   cup   chopped onion (1 medium)
9    4 inches   leftover or toasted frozen plain or buttermilk waffles, halved
3      eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2   cups   half-and-half, light cream, or whole milk
1    tablespoon   snipped fresh sage
    Fresh sage leaves (optional)
    Pure maple syrup
Line a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner; set aside.
In a large skillet cook sausage, sweet pepper, and onion over medium-high heat until meat is brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. Spread one-third of the sausage mixture in the prepared cooker; top with one-third of the halved waffles. Repeat layers twice more.
In a medium bowl combine eggs, half-and-half, and snipped sage. Pour egg mixture over layers in cooker. Using the back of a large spoon, press down lightly to moisten the top layer of waffles. If desired, sprinkle with sage leaves.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting about 3 1/2 hours or until a knife inserted in the center of egg mixture comes out clean, giving the crockery liner a half-turn once halfway through cooking, if possible. Remove crockery liner from cooker, if possible, or turn off cooker. Cool for 30 minutes. Serve bread pudding warm with maple syrup.

8    ounces   rich rectangular crackers, such as Club crackers
3/4   cup   butter (1-1/2 sticks)
3/4   cup   honey
1    cup   packed brown sugar
1/3   cup   whipping cream
2    cups   finely crushed graham crackers
1    teaspoon   vanilla
1/2   teaspoon   fine sea salt

Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick foil, extending foil over the edges of the pan. Arrange half of the crackers in a single layer over the bottom of the prepared pan. In a medium saucepan combine butter, honey, brown sugar, and cream. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Add graham cracker crumbs, reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook mixture for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon of the sea salt.
Pour half of the caramel mixture over the crackers in the prepared pan, spreading to cover. Sprinkle with chopped peanut butter cups and peanuts. Pour remaining caramel over. Arrange remaining crackers in a single layer over the caramel, pushing slightly to secure.

4      boneless pork sirloin steaks (pork cutlets), cut 1/2-inch thick (about 1 pound)
1/4   cup   soy sauce
1/4   cup   sesame oil
3    tablespoons   honey
1    tablespoon   rice vinegar
1    tablespoon   minced garlic
1/4   teaspoon   grated fresh ginger
1/4   teaspoon   Dijon-style coarse ground mustard
4      flatbreads, such as naan or pocketless pita
1/2   cup   sliced banana peppers, drained
Sesame Slaw
3    cups   finely shredded red cabbage
1    cup   finely chopped celery
3    tablespoons   sesame oil
3    tablespoons   honey
3    tablespoons   rice vinegar
2    tablespoons   soy sauce
3    tablespoons   sesame seed, toasted
Place pork cutlets In a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup sesame oil, 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, the garlic, ginger and mustard. Seal bag and massage gently to combine ingredients and coat meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes. (Meanwhile, make Sesame Slaw, if you haven't already.) Drain pork, reserving marinade.
Grill pork cutlets on the rack of a covered gas or charcoal grill directly over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink, brushing with reserved marinade and turning once during cooking. Remove from grill and slice crosswise into strips. Add flatbread to grill and grill 1 to 2 minutes or until softened and lightly toasted, turning once.
To assemble sandwiches, divide sliced pork, Sesame Slaw and banana peppers among warmed flatbread. (Use a slotted spoon with the slaw.)
Sesame Slaw
In a large bowl, combine cabbage, celery, 3 tablespoons sesame oil, 3 tablespoons honey, 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Toss well. Cover and refrigerate at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours. Before serving, stir in toasted sesame seed.
Use regular sesame oil here, not toasted sesame oil.

2    cups   dried cavatappi (cellentani) pasta
1    3 1/2ounce package  thinly sliced pepperoni
1    pound   lean ground beef
1/3   cup   finely chopped onion
1    8 ounce package  mushrooms, sliced
1    15 ounce can  pizza sauce
1    8 ounce can  tomato sauce
1    6 ounce can  tomato paste
1/2   teaspoon   sugar
1/8   teaspoon   ground black pepper
1/8   teaspoon   garlic salt
1/8   teaspoon   onion salt
2    cups   shredded mozzarella cheese
1    tablespoon   grated Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to the package directions, except omit the salt; drain. Return drained pasta to pot.
Meanwhile, cut 3/4 of the pepperoni slices in quarters; set aside.
In a large oven-going skillet, cook ground beef, onion and mushrooms until meat is brown and onion is tender; drain off fat.
Stir in the reserved quartered pepperoni slices, the pizza sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, pepper, garlic salt and onion salt. Add beef mixture to the cooked, drained pasta in the pot. (Do not rinse skillet.) Stir to combine.
Return half of the pasta-beef mixture to the skillet. Sprinkle with half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Top with the reserved whole pepperoni slices and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
Bake in a 350 degrees oven about 35 minutes or until casserole is heated through and cheese and pepperoni are lightly browned.
This recipe is very flexible. If you like, add or substitute other favorite pizza toppings. You can add chopped red or green sweet peppers with the beef and onion or stir in sliced pitted ripe olives with the pepperoni. Or try substituting sweet or hot Italian sausage for the ground beef.
