If your family is like most, then dinner is the one meal where everyone sits at the table together. When you eat dinner, why not prepare something that is mouthwatering? You can create a meal that has everyone asking for seconds, and possibly thirds. It only takes a few ingredients to get the kind of meal that will leave everyone talking.
If you have a crock pot, then a roast is one of the comfort meals that you can prepare without slaving over burners. Put a small amount of water in the pot in the morning, and place the roast in the pot, setting the temperature between low and medium. You can leave the crock pot on during the day while you are at work. When you get home, you will have a tender roast that you can pair with potatoes, carrots and other vegetables.
Children are sure to love these small pieces of chicken as they are coated with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. You can bake the chicken or fry the pieces in a small amount of oil. Remove the chicken from the heat when it has a golden crust. You can add a variety of dipping sauces so that everyone has their favorite. Chicken that is cut into tenders works best for this recipe.
This is a southern dish that can be prepared a variety of ways. If you want a classic meatloaf, then combine hamburger meat with seasonings, ketchup, and egg and bread crumbs. You can add shredded cheese and bacon bits for a cheeseburger meatloaf or salsa for a Mexican twist. This is a dish that works well with mashed potatoes. Add a little sour cream in the potatoes to make them creamy.
Whether you use chicken or another favorite meat, you can create a delicious casserole out of almost anything. Use a stand mixer by kitchenaid to combine the wet and dry ingredients. This combination will serve as your base and some of the layers of the casserole. Add items that your family enjoys like noodles, pizza sauce and pepperoni for a pizza casserole or lemon pepper and chicken for fresh taste.
This is a twist on the classic spaghetti dish. Prepare your spaghetti, but instead of combining the ingredients in a bowl, place everything in a casserole dish. You can find dishes and pasta makers at MendingShed.com. When the spaghetti is in the dish, add shredded cheese on the top as well as pepperoni slices and other ingredients that you would like to use with your noodles.
There are several dishes that you can create simply by using a basic meal idea. Expand on something that your family enjoys by adding spices and other items that you might not normally add to your meal. Cheese is always a good addition if you want to make the dish filling, and chicken is a good protein that you can add numerous items to so that you have meals for the entire week.
