This is from "More Make Your Own Groceries". There are instructions for both eating right away and freezing to eat later. This is one of several dishes I made in preparation for the birth of my daughter and would probably be good for someone who doesn't usually have enough time (or energy) to make a healthy meal for themselves every day, but has a period of time to make this. I've probably estimated prep time on the high side because I'm a slow cooker.
Forget about ordering in! These hearty stuffed "pizzas", filled with smoky ham and cheese are less expensive than take-out and a snap to bake. Just stock up on prepared pizza dough-readily available in the refrigerated or frozen food sections of the supermarkets.
My good friend Donna brought this to our Thanksgiving feast this year 2006' and it was the hit of the table. Not only is it low calorie but tastefully delicious. Made a great presentation, Thanks for sharing Donna. NOTE: The system would not allow me to put in the exact amount of the pkt of Dressing.... So when making this use only 1/2 pkt
This comes from the Time Life series of international cookbooks and has been a family favourite in our house for at least 10 years. It's best to set aside a morning to make these and haul someone in the kitchen to help put them together. Although they are not difficult to make, it does go faster if you set up an "assembly line". The seasoning given here is what I would consider a minimum but you may want to add more to your taste, especially when it comes to the hot pepper. You could also do half potatoes and half carrots for the filling if you like. The amount this recipe makes is also a guess based on our samosas, which are bigger than bite sized but not as big as you get in some Indian shops. If you don't have a deep fryer, you could use a wok instead. If you are really set on doing a healthier version, you could brush these with oil and bake in an oven until browned on both sides, however the texture of the dough is not as good as if you fry them. If you choose the baking option, you may also have to brush them with oil a few times and flip at least once to get them reasonably browned all over. Frying is really the preferred method.
Samosas are one of my all time favourite snacks, especially straight from the pan. I vary the filling to match my vegetable rack but i've always got a few potatoes knocking around and some peas in the freezer.
These empanadas require no browning of meat, no cooking of vegetables, or anything else time consuming! Instead, you just use refrigerated pizza dough and ingredients straight from the can or jar. The recipe is from Real Simple magazine.
This is an adopted recipe that I haven't had a chance to try. When I have tested it, I will make comments or amendments, as necessary. Original poster's comments: "Found this in TOH's Ground Beef Cookbook, made a few changes and here it is. This and my Easy Cheesy Breadsticks make a great meal! I prefer homemade pizza dough, so, I don't use the refrigerated dough like it calls for. Hope you enjoy!"
This is a creation of mine that was inspired by a chicken crescent square recipe. I took the ingredients from some of my baked spinach casseroles, tweeked them, and came up with this impressive looking vegetable. Great for a fancy dinner party or a romantic dinner.
