All families have favorite recipes that everyone loves
regardless of their age. The first three are favorites
of my family. I've also included a couple of favorites from our community members.
Puffed Pizza Casserole
Brown meat and onion-drain. Add sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes.Spoon hot sauce into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle cheese on top. Put in oven to keep warm. In a bowl beat eggs and milk until frothy. Add flour and salt, then beat until smooth. Pour over hot meat mixture, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until dough is puffed and up and browned.
Pizza Macaroni Casserole
Brown beef and onion, while breaking up with spoon. Drain fat. Add sauce, water and spices. Divide meat mixture in half and pour 1/2 of this portion into 2 pie pans (cake pans will work also). Divide pasta between the two pans for second layer. Pour remaining sauce into the two pans for the third layer. Divide cheese and sprinkle evenly, then top with the pizza toppings. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes 6-8 servings.
SautÃ© ground sausage, drain well. Place on a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up more grease. Make pizza dough according to instructions and pat onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Top with drained sausage. Add shredded potatoes over the sausage so that most of sausage is covered. Pour beaten eggs on sausage and potatoes so that the entire surface is covered, but not going over the edges of the dough. Add shredded cheeses over the top. Bake in a 350-375 oven for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Serves 8 pieces.
kdeedee's Chicken Enchiladas
Saute' in butter:
To the gravy add:
Mix half of the gravy with the following:
Using the large flour burrito shells put about 1/2 cup (or more) of the mixture & roll. Place in casserole dish, seam side down. Cover with the remaining gravy. Sprinkle the remainder of the shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. We always like to add extra sour cream, jalapenos' or salsa when we eat ours! ENJOY!
Jenni's Black Bean Quesadillas
One of my favorite "quick" summer dinners is black bean quesadillas. We are having this tonight with some homemade pineapple salsa. ~Jenni
Mix the black beans, corn, tomato sauce, and 1/2 package of taco seasoning (save the rest for another use!) in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave until warmed through.
Place a tortilla in a frying pan. Sprinkle some cheese over it. Spread some of the black bean mixture on top, then add some more cheese on that. Top with another tortilla. (You don't want it to be too full or it will be difficult to flip, but fill most of the tortilla with a layer about a half-inch thick.) Heat for about a minute, until bottom layer of cheese starts to melt, then carefully flip the quesadilla and cook for about a minute more. Since the black beans are already warm, you just have to melt the cheese. Repeat for as many quesadillas as you like. (The mixture will make several quesadillas, or save the rest of the black bean mixture for another use. You can add some cooked ground beef or cooked chicken and more taco seasoning for a great taco filling!) Cut into wedges and serve with sour cream, salsa, or whatever else you like. I sometimes add some rotisserie chicken to the black bean mixture when the chickens are on sale at the grocery store!
