Easy Ham and Potato Casserole

This is one of those quick and easy recipes that you can just toss some ingredients together into a casserole dish and throw it in the oven.

Easy Ham and Potato Casserole

Simply mix cut up ham and peeled, cut up potatoes in a casserole dish wish some green beans and a can or two of cream of mushroom soup. If you don't want to peel and cut up potatoes, tater tots make an excellent substitution! Then it's called Tater Tot Casserole. Yum! It's especially good on a chilly or rainy day/night. Makes great leftovers, too.

Tuna Crescent Roll

This is one of those quick and easy recipes that you'll go to if you're lazy like me crunched for time. I can't recall where I got this recipe from, but I've been making it for years.

Tuna Crescent Roll
A couple cans of tuna
shredded cheese
refrigerator crescent rolls

Mix up a couple cans of tuna with mayo and mustard. If you don't like mustard, leave it out. Adding pickle relish might be interesting, but I haven't tried that yet since my son doesn't like relish. I think you could add pretty much anything you'd like!

Carefully unfold the rolled up crescent rolls, and lay flat on a baking sheet. I put tinfoil down since it can get kinda messy, and I like super fast clean ups.

Spoon in the tuna mixture down the middle seam and top with shredded cheese. Carefully fold the long sides of the crescent rolls up and pinch in the middle and at the ends. Sometimes the pinching doesn't stay put, as you can see from my above photo.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until crescent rolls look done. Remember, you'll have to bake longer than what the package for the crescent rolls recommends because it's got all that tuna in there. It'll be doughy if you take it out too soon. Trust me!

Pepperoni Quiche

This is a quick and easy recipe for something as fancy schmancy as quiche!

Pepperoni Quiche
1 unbaked pie shell
2 1/2 oz pepperoni, cut up
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons bacon bits
4 oz. shredded Swiss cheese
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup whipping cream
3 eggs

The recipe says to mix cream and eggs together in blender, but since I hate having a bunch of things to wash, I just whisked these together in my mixing bowl.

Put cheeses, onion, and bacon bits into bowl. Mix in egg mixture by hand. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Put pepperoni on top.

Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before cutting Ham, other kinds of meat, or mushrooms make good substitutions.

Also, I always used mozzarella instead of Swiss cheese because I just can't stomach the smell of Swiss (stinky feet) cheese.

Triple Layer Cookie Bars

I think I got this recipe from a yahoo group, but I'm not positive.

Anyway, it's super yummy and pretty easy. Tastes like a Mounds bar. It was a favorite when I served it in a cafe I ran.

Triple Layer Cookie Bars
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 (7 oz) package coconut (2 and 2/3 cups)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter; mix well. Press firmly onto bottom of 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Top evenly with coconut. Pour sweetened condensed milk over coconut layer.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until coconut is lightly browned.

Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter. Spread evenly over hot coconut layer. Cool 30 minutes and chill. Devour!

Orange Pop Cheescake Pie

Here's a creation of mine that I thought up while dinking around in the kitchen over the weekend:

Orange Pop Cheesecake Pie
1 can orange pop
2 bricks cream cheese, softened
1 vanilla pudding mix
1/2 cup sour cream
graham cracker pie crust

Beat together softened cream cheese and sour cream. Add pudding mix and slowly add one can of orange pop. Beat until thickened and pour into graham cracker pie crust. Chill.

If you want more of an orange pop taste, just use one brick of cream cheese, and adjust the fluid and amount of pudding mixture.

Please note the above are approximations. It's hard for me to go by exact amounts, since I'm not that kind of cook/baker. So add more pudding mix if you're trying to thicken it more, or if you need it thinner, add more pop or sour cream.

Yummmm! It really tastes cream cheesy and orange poppy!

I'm going to be trying this with different pop flavors, like strawberry and cream soda. I've made a root beer cheesecake pie before (using root beer flavoring). I'll have to dig that recipe out.
