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.
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
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!
Just found this yummy recipe while surfing around: Buttery Cream Cheese Bars. It has a bit more ingredients that a lazy chef like me wants to deal with, but it sure is an easy recipe. It looks too good to pass up!
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.
