    Default Crock Pot Italian Beef

    Italian Beef

    From: ChristaM
    Serves: Lots! Or you can 1/2 this recipe. But, it also freezes well

    Ingredients:
    5-6 lbs Beef Roast (fat removed)
    2 Pkgs. Dry Italian Seasoning Mix
    Garlic Powder to taste
    2 Cans of Beer
    6 Beef Bouillon Cubes
    Submarine or other such buns
    Condiments of your choice

    Put all ingredients (except buns/condiments) in a crock pot / slow cooker and cook covered over night on low heat; about 12 hours. Shred the beef (should be very tender) and serve on buns.

    Optional: Au Jus can be served in small dishes for dipping (similar to French Dip) and/or provide condiments (mayo, butter, horse radish, onion, pickle, etc.).

    Hint: Beef can be made ahead of time and frozen.

    Default Scotch Eggs

    Scotch Eggs

    From: Christam
    Makes: 12 eggs




    Ingredients:
    • 12 hard boiled eggs
    • 2 rolls Jimmy Dean Sausage (regular or Italian flavor)
    • 1 Container, Stove Top Chicken Stuffing
    Directions:
    • Boil and peel the eggs
    • Divide sausage tubes into 6 pieces each (12 total pieces)
    • Flatten the sausage into pancake type pieces. Wrap one piece of sausage around each egg (you will have to work with it; I find it best to just sort of roll/pat the egg in my cupped hand)
    • Take 1-2 cups of stove top (dried mixture - not cooked) and place inside a plastic bag. Roll/crush the mixture until it is like bread crumbs. Pour into a bowl.
    • Roll each egg/sausage combo in the crushed stove top mixture.

    Default Broccoli Chicken Casserole

    Broccoli Chicken Casserole
    From: Christam
    Makes: 9x13 dish

    Ingredients:
    • 3 cups cooked chicken (I use breasts)
    • 2 cups uncooked macaroni noodles
    • 16oz package frozen broccoli florets
    • 1/2 cup velvetta cheese (or more depending on your tastes)
    • 1 Tbsp chopped dry onion
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • 2 (4oz size) cans of chopped mushrooms; drained
    • 1/2 stick of butter melted
    • 1-2 tubes of Town House Crackers
    Directions:
    • Cook the chicken breasts and then chop into dice size pieces
    • Let the broccoli thaw to room temperature; I also chop up the big pieces since this is how my family likes it best
    • Mix** all the ingredients together (except the crackers) and then pour into 9x13 pan.
    • Let stand, covered, in refrigerator over night or 4-6 hours
    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    • Crush the crackers (inside a bag) and then sprinkle the crumbs on top of the casserole.
    • Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour
    • can bake and then freeze to reheat (if freezing; omit the crackers until you reheat the dish).
    ** If it's only going to sit for 4-6 hours, I find it best to put the noodles on the bottom of the pan, pour on the liquids and then layer the remaining ingredients on top. I let it set in the refrigerator like this and then stir to combine just before baking. If it sets all night, then it's okay to combine right away.

    Default Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie

    Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie

    From: Christam
    Serves: 4
    1/4 of the pie is 5 points for those on WW

    Ingredients:
    • 2 Tbsp light margarine
    • 1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (I just use the canned/sliced mushrooms to save time)
    • 1-1/2 cups (16oz pkg) frozen broccoli florets; thawed (I chop them up some)
    • 1/2 cup sliced/shredded carrots (I use store bought shredded carrots to save time)
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 8 oz cooked skinless turkey/chicken breasts; cubed/diced
      • I use jennie-o cooked turkey breast and just chop it up
    • 2 tsp all-purpose flour
    • 2 tsp dry mustard
    • 1 tsp thyme
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth
    • 1/4 cup skim milk
    • 1 egg white
    • 2 tsp dijon-style mustard
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk baking mix
    Directions:
    • Place large non-stick skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds. Melt the margarine. Add mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, & onion. Cook; stirring frequently, cook until just tender. Add the cooked turkey/chicken, stir to combine.
    • Sprinkle flour, dry mustard, and thyme over turkey mixture. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Wisk in the broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is cooked down/thickens
    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • In a seperate bowl, combine, the milk, egg white, dijon mustard and baking mix. Mix until batter is thoroughly combined
    • Spary an 8 inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon the turkey mixture into plate, spread evenly. Top with batter.
    • Bake at least 20 minutes; until golden brown. (I find it needs to cook about 40 minutes or so).
    Tips:
    • I usually mix everything up the night before. But, I don't add the batter to the top until just before baking (although I do mix up the batter the night before too).
    • Can make the turkey mixture and freeze for later use. Thaw thoroughly, place in dish and then top with batter to bake.

    Default Diet Soda Cake!

    Diet Soda Cake


    Ingredients:
    • 1 package store bought cake mix (any flavor you want)
    • 1 can diet soda (any flavor you want)
    Directions:
    • Combine the cake mix and diet soda until creamy. Be sure to mix well - this is important
    • Prepare a 9x13 cake pan -- spray with non-stick cooking spray and lightly flour
    • Pour cake batter into prepared pan
    • Bake according to cake package directions. Although you may need to bake it a bit longer. Cake is done when tooth pick inserted into center comes out clean.
    Tips:
    You can get creative with this using different flavors of soda/cake mix. I've done diet cherry 7-up and a white/yellow mix. I've heard people do chocolate with root beer. Have fun!
