Month 1   Week 1   Recipes

Texas Toast Sloppy Joe makes 8 sammiches

Ingredients:
2 boxes of Five Cheese Texas Toast

1 lb burger

1 can of Manwich

8 slices of American cheese

1 can Manwich

Can of Tomato Soup or another side of your liking

Directions:
Preheat Oven to 425 degrees.

Fry 1 lb of burger.

Drain grease (important so toast does not get soggy; pour into bowl & sprinkle some quick oats on top of the grease and it will soak up nicely.)

Place burger back into frying pan, add Manwich.

Place 5-Cheese Texas Toast on pan, cheese side up; add another slice of cheese of your choosing to every other slice.

Bake for 7 minutes, or so.

Remove from oven, put Sloppy Joe mixture on top of the extra cheesed toast.

Bake for 3 to 4 more minutes.

Remove from oven, cool slightly, add empty Texas Toast on top of your grilled cheese.

Enjoy with tomato soup or another side of your liking.



Chicken Spaghetti

Ingredients:
16 oz Thin Spaghetti

2 cups cooked Chicken (rotisserie or throw 2-3 breasts into crockpot with some water overnight the night before)

1 can Cream of Mushroom

1 can Cream of Chicken

1 cup Thick & Chunky Salsa

1 cup Sour Cream

4 oz (half block) of cream cheese

1 cup shredded Mexican Style Cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon Taco Seasoning

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cook pasta according to package.

Mix together cooked pasta, diced/shredded chicken, cream of mushroom/chicken soups, salsa, sour cream, cream cheese, taco seasoning and 1 ½ cups of shredded cheese.

Pour into greased pan.

Top with cheese, cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.



City Fried Chicken *a baking dish with wire rack is needed for this recipe*

Ingredients:
2 lbs boneless Pork, cut into 1 ½ cubes

14, 4 inch (or whatever size you find) skewers (or shish-ka-bob sticks)

Seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder

4 large Eggs

3 TBSP Milk

2 cups Italian Panko or Breadcrumbs

2 cups of Water

2 cups of Vegetable oil

Directions:
Thread 2 – 3 pieces of Pork to each skewers, sprinkle skewer on all sides with seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder (BADIA Complete Seasoning and Lawry’s Adobo Seasoning with Pepper are pretty well-rounded to use together, if you can have salt!)

Pour 2 cups of water in the 9 x 13 baking dish with wire rack set in the dish. Set aside.

Whisk eggs and milk in bowl. Place seasoned bread crumbs in another bowl.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat vegetable oil in large saucepan.

Dip each skewer of pork into the egg mixture, then dip in crumbs; dip the skewers a second time into egg mixture and then crumbs. Gently lay the skewers, a few at a time, into the hot oil, and brown until the coating is crisp and golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Set the fried skewers aside while you finish the rest.

Once the skewers are all browned, set them on the wire rack in the baking dish. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.

Carefully place the baking dish with the skewers into the preheated oven and bake until hot and no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 10 minutes more to dry out the crumb coating. Serve hot.

While City Chicken is in oven, make side of your choice.

Honey Buttered Corn is a delicious idea, plus you should have some cream cheese left over from last nights dinner:

2 tablespoons butter, tablespoons honey, 1 bag (16 oz) frozen corn, 2 ounces cream cheese cut into chunks, salt and pepper.

In a skillet pan, over medium-high heat, melt the butter and honey. Once melted add the frozen corn and cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked through.

Add cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir together and let it cook, about 3-5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

1 lb Kielbasa, cut up

1 ½ cups Onion, diced

½ cup Milk

1 cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

8 oz Rotini or Bowtie Pasta (ONLY 8 oz or will be too dry)

Directions:

Add oil to pan, fry kielbasa and diced onions, add garlic.

Add broth, tomatoes, milk, pasta and seasoning. Simmer 15 minutes.
