Today’s WFMW is “the What Do I Fix? Edition” We are sharing recipes that are simple to fix for those crazy days that sneak up on you. I’ve got a few that I fall back on when it gets hectic…..well, more hectic than usual, that is!
2 lb. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
2 c. cheese crackers, crushed into fine crumbs (I use food processor)
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 t. garlic salt or powder
3-5 drops Tabasco sauce
Combine melted butter, garlic salt & Tabasco sauce. Dip chicken tenderloins in butter and roll in cheese cracker crumbs. Place on cookie sheet or shallow baking pan & drizzle any remaining butter over the top. Bake at 375 for
I tried a Betty Crocker recipe years ago called Easy Cheeseburger Pie. We did not like it at all, but I modified that recipe to create this easy breakfast casserole. My kids were little bitty at the time and named it Sausage Pie.
1 pound hot breakfast sausage
1 c. baking mix (like Bisquick)
2 c. milk
1 ½ – 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Cook sausage until brown; drain & spread in greased 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Mix together eggs, milk & baking mix. Pour evenly over sausage & cheese. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
Good served with fried potatoes.
Simple Salisbury Steak
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
In a bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup soup and onion. Crumble the beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties. In a large nonstick skillet, brown the patties on both sides; drain.
In a bowl, combine the milk, salt and remaining soup; stir in mushrooms. Pour over patties. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
Chocolate Oat Squares
I always have these ingredients on hand, so this is the recipe I pull out when I remember at the last minute that I’m supposed to take a dessert somewhere. Everyone loves them!
1 ½ c. flour (I use whole wheat)
1 ½ c. old-fashioned rolled oats
1 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
½ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
¾ c. butter (1 ½ sticks), melted
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 pan. Mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda & salt. Pour melted butter over flour mixture; stir until well combined. Spread into pan. Pat into an even layer. Bake until lightly browned, 15 minutes. Remove from oven & immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over bars. Let sit for about 5 minutes & then spread melted chocolate. Cool completely before cutting.
