OK, time to expand my crock-potting. Got that lasagna recipe? :)


There's more, and if you've got a slow cooker, I'll hunt up that lasagna recipe. 

;D  OK, OK, I got the hint from that other thread! ;)

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Ingredients
  • 8 Lasagna noodles, uncooked (if you've got No-Boil noodles in your area,  the wife is telling me those work excellent, if not, go with whatcha got)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning (or roll your own - basil, oregano, parsley flakes, garlic powder)
  • 28 oz jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 4 oz can of sliced mushrooms
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese (cottage cheese works just fine too)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (a 16 oz bag if you buy it pre-shredded)

Directions
  • Break the noodles in half.  Place half the noodles in the bottom of greased slow cooker.
  • Brown ground beef and drain.  Stir in Italian seasoning.  Spread half over noodles in slow cooker.
  • Layer half of the sauce, water, mushrooms, ricotta cheese and mozzarella over the beef.  Add remaining noodles over the top, add remaining beef, and lastly, all remaining ingredients
  • Cover and cook on Low for 5 hours.

I may have to try that for my wife, sounds like her kind of thing. Stupid question - what's "cream" --- sour cream?

My husband makes this for me all the time.  My favourite dish.

Chicken Mikaele

6 chicken pieces (or 3 double chicken breasts)
Oregano
2 cloves of garlic
1 can tomatoes
1 cup cream (or whole tub of cream if a lot of chicken)
3 medium zucchinis sliced
1 medium onion sliced
1 packet Continental Chicken Supreme Soup (or the US packet soup equivalent)

Dust chicken pieces with garlic and oregano in a baking dish.

Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken.  Bake for 1.25 to 1.5 hours in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius so convert for US farenheit).

Serve it with boiled rice.

The flavours are so incredibly tasty.  You'll be wanting more I promise.

Love Sez.

Gee Saint - you guys don't have regular cream over there?  Um pouring cream?  Whipping cream perhaps?  Definitely not sour cream.

Hope that helps.
Love Sez.

Saint, that's regular ol' heavy cream.  I bet half and half would work too.

Sez, I bet what threw Saint off is when you referred to a "tub" of it.  I dunno how they sell it down under, but it's in a quart jug or milk carton looking thingamabob

I'm starting a pool for anyone who wants to put some money down.  Get in on which recipe you think Saint will screw up, Lasagna, or "The Cream Incident" ;D

I'll post odds as the bets are placed :laugh2:

Heh...Heh...all in good fun, right Saint?  :-\   ;)

I've found that most crockpot recipes are for a 2 quart machine, since that's the most common size sold.  Adjust any and all recipes I give accordingly.  For anyone considering buying a crockpot (slow cooker, are they the same type of machine?), Sam's club usually has one for sale that has 2 liners.  One is simply a big single pot, and they include an extra one that's divided into 2 sections in case you want to make 2 things at once.  Nice for making dinner in one side (although remember, it's half the size) and dessert or a side dish in the other.

Well, Drew.... thank the wife for me!  Recipe turned out really delicious and I'd recommend it (even tho I only used half of it currently)!  Both the wife and I each had one large serving out of the crock and emptied it.. lol..  Good Stuff!!

Me and my wife end up going out too often because it's hard to cook for just 2 sometimes (wind up with too many leftovers and it ends up costing more when we throw the leftovers out a week later...)

We have been trying to cook more at home as well (it's really expensive to eat out all the time as you've stated), and one thing that has really helped is having kitchen shortcuts.  Stuff that makes it really easy to make something when you don't have a ton of time to make something.

We buy our ground beef in the large family pack in a 5, 6 or 7 lb size. We then brown it all in a very large pot, adding some minced garlic and salt & pepper to taste. When it’s browned and all of the meat is cooked, we measure out 2 1/2 cups into quart size ziploc bags and toss them in the freezer for future use. Each baggie holds the equivalent of 1 lb. of browned ground beef, and all we do is throw it into the microwave, frozen solid, and cook it for for 3 minutes on high, and it’s ready to use in any recipe we need. All you need to remeber is 1 lb. of browned ground beef = 2  1/2 cups. It has saved us so many times and we can get dinner onto the table a lot faster too.

I also usually leave most of the cooking to my wife, but I do have a few things that I cook when my wife needs a break.  All really easy to make and tastey.

Easy Breakfast Burritos

 - 1 Cup of frozen Hash Brown or French Fries
 - 4 eggs
 - Handful of pepperoni
 - Grated cheese

In a large frying pan (medium high to high heat), cover the bottom with some vegitable oil and frozen hashbrowns or french fries.  If you are using french fries, use your spatula to chop into smaller bits as they soften while cooking.  Once the potatoes are cooked and as crispy as you like, remove to a plate with a paper towel on it (I do this to get rid of some of the oil, I guess you could skip this step if you dont' care).  Now take the pepperoni and tear into small pieces and throw onto the pan (same heat) and fry them until they are as crispy as you like them.  Again, I move them to a plate with a paper towel (can skip this step if you don't mind the extra grease).

Now turn heat down to medium, and crack all 4 eggs into pan and cook as if you were cooking scrambled eggs (just stir them all around and break yokes if you've never made scrambled eggs before ;) ).  I usually ad a few drops of hot sauce (up to your preferance) and salt and pepper the eggs.  Before the eggs are completely done cooking (still a little liquidy) I add all of the potatoes and pepperoni back to the pan and mix it all together.  Then I just sprinkle grated cheese on the top and turn the heat down to medium low.  Once the cheese is all melted, it's ready to eat.

Just scoop some filling into a tortilla, and I personally like it with bbq sauce in it (there is a specific kind that I like called texas pit).  I know it sounds a bit weird (with pepperoni and bbq sauce, but everyone in my family who has tried it, now makes it for their family all the time).

There is usually enough for 4 - 5 people (could easily add more potatoes, eggs, and pepperoni if you need more).  I also don't really measure out the hash browns or french fries, I usually just dump some on the pan, but it's probably like a cup.  You can add or subtract those as they are kind of filler.  Some people don't like a really potatoe-y taste to their breakfast burritos.

My specialty pizza.  Everyone who's tried it loves it, and my wife "demands" that I make it regularly.

Xar's Famous Pizza

Ingredients:
Dough
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 tsp suger
1/2 pkg active dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2   Tblsp veg. oil
1-1/4cup flour

Sauce
2.5 oz. tomato paste
2.5 oz. water
1/2 tsp salt
1   Tblsp veg. oil
1/2 tsp crushed oregano
pepper, tobasco sauce (to add a little kick, add to taste)

Toppings
Diced Pepperoni, Salami, Ham, Bacon
1 can sliced mushrooms
Chedder, Mozzarella, and Monteray Jack cheeses (Apply to your own taste)
Diced Green Pepper
1 can sliced black olives
Whatever else you like on your "za"

Directions
Mix water + suger together in a large bowl.  Sprinkle yeast and stand 10 mins.  Then stir well.

While waiting for the yeast to rise, I'll usually combine the sauce ingradients in another bowl.

Stir in salt, oil, and 3/4 cup flour and beat until smooth.
Stir in remaining 1/2 cup flour

Turn out onto lightly floured board, work in flour and knead until smooth and elastic. (additional flour MAY be required, but you don't want the dough to be totally dry, just not sticky.)
Form dough into a ball

Roll out into 18" circle
Place on grased pizza pan and turn edges up slightly

Mix sauce ingredients and spread over dough circle.

Spread toppings
bake 400F for 20-25mins

Enjoy!

I have a similar recipe and wholeheartedly agree that the microwave does wonders to prep the potatoes and reduce the probability of the innards being undercooked or mealy.

Only other thing I'll note is that 6 tsp = 2 TBL   Just to make things easier :)

Microwave Breakfast burrito's:

this is one of my favorite breakfast foods. You can cook it on the stove, but the microwave is grease-free and quick.
Ingredients:
4 eggs
milk
1-2 slices cheese, or a handful of shredded cheese (personal preference)
approx 1/4 package kielbalsa, or smoked sausage (get the kind made with turkey for less fat.)
burrito shells

- Peel skin from Kielbalsa , and cut into small chunks. Set aside on paper towel
-Crack the eggs into a microwaveable bowl. Add about 1/4 cup milk.
-mix together well with a utensil of your choosing
-Heat in microwave in 30-40 second intervals. Stir briefly after each interval
- Once eggs are about halfway cooked, add the cheese.
- cook until cheese is melted and there is a slight amount of uncooked egg still in the bowl
- Remove egg mixture, and cook kielbalsa for 40-50 seconds. Squash with paper towels to remove grease.
- Add kielbalsa to egg mixture and stir thoroughly.
- cook mixture for additional 30 seconds
-spoon mixture into heated burrito shells

I put mustard on the burrito shells, and I encourage you to try it at least once.

She said something about the layering, not using the Italian seasoning (because the sauce had it in it already), and adding the meat to the sauce beforehand.

I'm not much into measuring unless I'm baking, so here are my 2 favorite "eyeball the amounts" recipies.

Chicken Divan

3-4 boneless skinless chicken boobies
1 can cream of mushroom soup
same amount of mayo that is in the mush soup
1-2 heads o' broccoli
lump o' colby or co-jack cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350.

Boil the boobies in water until they are done all the way through.  Cut however you want, cubes/strips... just make them bite-size-ish.

Cut the tops off the broccoli into bite size pieces up and lay in a pan.  Put enough water to go about 1/2 inch  up on the pan.  Crank up the heat to a boil.  Cover and let it boil/steam for a few minutes (not until it is done, just cook it a little bit).

Be sure to drain both the chicken and broccoli well.  Open and dump the can of soup into a bowl, mix it with an equal amount of mayo.

In a baking dish big enough to hold all this junk:

Put chicken on the bottom.  Broccoli on top of that.  Soup mixture on top of that.  Grate the cheese and put it on top of that, cheese should pretty much cover everything.

Bake uncovered until the cheese starts to brown on the top.  Remove, let rest for a few minutes.  Serve with rice.


Sloppy Joes

some ground beef
small onion, chopped
green pepper, chopped
ketchup
bbq sauce (i like kraft bbq sauce the best)
mustard
chili powder

Brown beef with onion and green pepper in your favorite neighborhood browning vessel, i really don't care what you use.  Drain grease.

Put equal amounts of bbq and ketchup in with the meat.  You can make them as saucy or as non-saucy as you want.

Squirt a little bit of mustard in, like only about a dime size (it doesn't take much), mix.

Put a little bit of chili powder in, mix.

Taste. Put more of any ingredients you want until you like it.

NOTE: If you are going to use this for leftovers, don't over-chilipowder it.  Once it sits in the fridge, like chili, the chili powder will become much more pronounced with age.

Slow cooker lasagna turned out good.  I think I did the whole mess for under $10.  Used a big can of that cheap catalina spaghetti sauce (which I think is better than any of those more expensive jar ones, other than the sauce I make myself) some hamboogie, half the italian seasoning.  I mixed the sauce and meat together in the skillet and i used 3 layers instead of just the 2.

I'm not sure about the 5 hours though, mine was done within 2.5 hours.  I like my noodles a bit on the al-dente side, though.

Ingredients

-  20-30 Mushrooms (a couple of those 8 oz. packs if you buy them prewrapped)
-  1 package of cream cheese (regular size...I think they're 10 oz, but maybe 8 oz)
-  1 package of *Hot* Jimmy Dean sausage (it isn't actually spicy...black pepper is too spicy for my wife and this poses no problem for her).
-   Some butter


Directions

1- Wash the mushrooms (don't go nuts, mushrooms should only spend a few seconds under cold water....they're very porous)
2- Twist all the stems out of the mushrooms
3- Chop up the stems into small pieces
4- On medium heat fry up the sausage, breaking it all up like if you were frying ground beef for tacos.
5- Put all those small stem pieces that you chopped up into the pan with the sausage (still on the burner) and mix it up.
6- Put the cream cheese in the pan (stil on burner).  Start breaking it up.  At first it will be difficult to work with, but pretty soon it will have the consistency of nacho cheese and mix right in.
7- Take the sausage mixture off the heat and start the oven preheating at 350 degrees.
8-  Scoop a big dollop of the mixture into each mushroom and place the mushrooms in a casserol dish or on a cookie sheet (that has no open sides).  You want the mixture in heap, overflowing out the top.
9- Slice up some pats of butter and arrange them here and there between mushrooms.  You just need it to melt down and create a pool of butter that the mushrooms will sit in while they bake.  You'll probably need about a half-cube for a regular 12x9 casserol dish.  You just want to make sure there's enough that All the mushrooms sit in butter (so you'll need more if your oven isn't very level cos it'll tend to pool up at one side of the pan.   It doesn't have to be deep at all.
10- Bake for 25 minutes.
These things are STUPID awesome and insanely easy to make. Made them for the first time for a party I went to Saturday night, took maybe 15 minutes to get everything chopped and fried (I browned the sausage while I chopped the mushrooms, saved some time there) and then 25 mins in the oven while I jumped in the shower. On a plate and in the car and arrived at the party. People kept eatting more of them everytime they came back to the table-a couple of people were even (jokingly) fighting over them. I had people who normally hate mushrooms say they were good-seriously.

For the record, it's Jimmy Dean Hot sausage (they don't make a Spicy).

Do yourself a favor and make these the next time you have a party to go to, you won't regret it and your friends will love you for it.
$6.75 the hard way-one quarter at a time.

Heh . . . I edited it when he PM'd me to ask if Hot was the same as Spicy, before he quoted the recipe in the above post.  He's not crazy.  It did say to use Jimmy Dean *Spicy* sausage.

Thanks for the good review.   :)

Thought I'd add some life to this thread with a new recipe.

Easy to make, no official name, call it corned beef casserole.

Ingredients :

1 can corned beef.
1 can cream of chicken soup.
1/2 of aforementioned can of milk.
1 lb bag of egg noodles.
1 2oz bag of potato chips (flavored, unflavored, thin or rippled, your choice)
8 oz of velveeta or other cheese, but velveeta melts better
few spoonfulls of butter/margarine.


Preheat oven to 350.  If you're like me, after 10 minutes open the oven, curse, and pull out the hot as hell iron skillet you left in there.    :angry:

Grease/spray a casserole dish big enough to hold everything (I use a deep round one myself)

Start boiling your noodles.  Add salt to taste.

While noodles are boiling, take the soup, dump in a bowl, add 1/2 can of milk, stir well.

Once stirred, add in the corned beef.  I find it helps to sort of moosh/chop the corned beef before-hand, it makes mixing with the soup easier.

Cut the velvetta into cubes.

Crush the chips.

Once your noodles are cooked, drain off the water.  Mix the soup/corned beef mixture with the noodles, coating evenly.

Take the resulting stuff, and dump it into the casserole dish.

Take the velveeta cubes and strategically place into the casserole dish, pushing it down into the noodles.

Apply crushed chips to the top of the noodles.  (You may need more than a couple oz if you use a wide dish)

Take some butter/margarine, and strategically place some on top of the crushed chips (I generally put maybe 3-4 spoonfulls of margarine)

Now, cook in the oven for about 40 minutes.

Enjoy!   :cheers:

Meat and cheese eh?  I learned this one the other day and it's awesome...

This is a great breakfast dish, don't know what it's called

grease the bottom of a pan, line it with unrolled Pillsbury Croissants
scramble up some eggs
add cooked bacon
add cooked ham and cooked sausage (Jimmy Dean style)
add cheddar cheese

Mix all that together, put it on top of the croissants, and then put anothe layer of the unrolled croissants over the top of that.

Bake it in the oven about 45 minutes at 350 or until the top is golden brown.

 :cheers:

Pork Fried Wontons

Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients:

1 lb. ground pork
1 can water chestnuts, minced
1 medium yellow onion, minced
1 small bowl warm water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 package Wonton skins

Cooking Instructions:
Brown pork; drain. Mix in water chestnuts, onions, salt, and pepper. Lay 1 wonton skin in palm of hand, place 1 tbsp. of pork mixture on it. Squeeze edges together and wet a little to seal. (Pay attention to this, if it’s not sealed the oil will seep inside and they will be very greasy.) Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Serve with Sweet and Sour Sauce or Duck Sauce (We like Gold’s Szechuan Style Duck Sauce.)

Makes a lot of wontons, probably 50-ish.  Not for dieters.  :)

Just tried this recipe as a snack and I'm stuffed.  It was so nice.  For those in the UK I got a pack of 6 chilli and coriander sausages (it was the only spicy one available) from Sainsburys.  Very easy to make, easy to eat, easy to clean up.  Damn delicious.  Thanks shmokes  :cheers:

Okay....it's hard for me to give this out, because it's so easy, and so powerful, but I love y'all so... 

I know that stuffed mushrooms don't sound like something that the kids will want, but trust me they'll only have to be forced to eat the first one.  EVERYBODY (besides vegans/vegetarians) loves these.  My wife actually got invited to a faculty party at one of the graphic design director's house once when she was a student, on the condition that she bring me and my mushrooms cos he had tasted them once before.

Ingredients

-  20-30 Mushrooms (a couple of those 8 oz. packs if you buy them prewrapped)
-  1 package of cream cheese (regular size...I think they're 10 oz, but maybe 8 oz)
-  1 package of *Hot* Jimmy Dean sausage (it isn't actually spicy...black pepper is too spicy for my wife and this poses no problem for her).
-   Some butter


Directions

1- Wash the mushrooms (don't go nuts, mushrooms should only spend a few seconds under cold water....they're very porous)
2- Twist all the stems out of the mushrooms
3- Chop up the stems into small pieces
4- On medium heat fry up the sausage, breaking it all up like if you were frying ground beef for tacos.
5- Put all those small stem pieces that you chopped up into the pan with the sausage (still on the burner) and mix it up.
6- Put the cream cheese in the pan (stil on burner).  Start breaking it up.  At first it will be difficult to work with, but pretty soon it will have the consistency of nacho cheese and mix right in.

And... back to recipes.

Got lazy last night.  3 year old wanted to eat.

Nuked a chicken breast until mostly done.  Cut into cubes.

Stick in casserole dish.

Add frozen peas and corn.

Make up 1 packet chicken gravy.  Pour into casserole.

Unroll pack of crescent rolls, and use as is to cover dish.  Trim.

Cook for 30 minutes at 350.  Instant chicken pot pie.
But wasn't it fun to think you won the lottery, just for a second there???
