Tempura Batter with Coors Light
Dip the wings in flour, then the franks red hot and the flour again. Fry the wings to 100 degrees this will lock in the flavor from the hot sauce. Allow the wings to cool. Mix your tempura batter. Dip the cooled hot wing in the tempura and fry. Serve with extra hot sauce on the side.

Bacon Cheese Burger Stuffed Mushroom
2 tablespoon butter
Large stuffing mushrooms,washed and stems removed
1/2 pound cooked lean ground beef, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled into small pieces
2/3 cup pepper jack cheese or your favorite cheese, shredded
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/3 cup french fried onions
In a saute pan melt butter and add mushrooms cooking for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove to an oven safe dish.
In a bowl combine browned ground beef, bacon, cheese, mayo and garlic salt. Mound filling into each mushroom cap and sprinkle with french fried onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked through and cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
Reuben Stuffed Potato Skins
8 russet potatoes, scrubbed and thoroughly dried
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces thinly sliced corned beef
1/3 cup Thousand Island dressing
1 cup sauerkraut, thoroughly drained
1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Pierce each potato several times with a fork or sharp knife. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake until the skins are crisp and a knife easily pierces the potatoes, about 50 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Set the oven to the broil setting.
Slice each potato in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch intact; reserve the flesh for another use. Brush the insides of the potatoes with the melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Flip the potatoes over, brush the skin sides with butter, and season with salt and pepper. Evenly space the potato halves skin side up on a baking sheet and broil until the butter foams and the skins start to crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the potato halves over and broil until the top edges just start to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes more.
Divide the corned beef evenly among the skins and top each with about 1 teaspoon of the dressing. Evenly divide the sauerkraut among the skins and sprinkle each with cheese. Place in the broiler and broil until the corned beef is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbling, about 4 to 5 minutes.
