Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is hands down a favorite snack in my house, for both me and my kids. I began making beef jerky at home as I was spending a fortune! Cooking beef jerky at home makes this high quality, delicious, healthy snack affordable. You can pick up a food dehydrator for a very reasonable price on Amazon and many other retailers.

I thought what better way to start out the first recipe of the New Year but with the first meal of the day. When I make this I cut it into eight pieces after it cools. I then put it in a sealed container layer with paper towels. The paper towels are key in keeping this omelet pie delicious all week long. I put a layer of paper towels on the bottom then...
