I got his recipe from "Emily Bites". She describes them as a healthy sub for tater tots and her numbers don't lie. These are soft inside and crispy outside. At 27 calories they pretty guilt free (ww = 1 per tot). I omitted the cheese because I didn't have any and they were still SO good. They are also a great way to sneak some veggies into picky kids!
A quick savory panini. Chicken breast with portabella mushrooms on crispy ciabatta bread with a creamy avacado mayo. You can make these with any variation of meats and veggies. We sometimes use deli meat, leftover beef or leftover veggies. Sometimes we vary the sauce by using cranberry mustard or chili sauce with mayo. This is a great way to clean out that fridge!
Slowly simmering lamb shanks make them fork tender. The smells of rosemary and leeks make the house smell amazing. This is very easy, based on A Williams-Sonoma recipe. While shanks are called for you can make this with a whole or half leg of lamb, just increase the simmering time. I always serve this with garlic mashed potatoes and peas. MMmmmmmm.
This came from an idea to use up left-over baked chicken. I adapted my favorite Italian Cacciatore recipe and the results were wonderful, so said my family. So I worked it a bit so it could be made from the start. This is now in my regular rotation. Play around with the spices until it suits you! This can be made with any type of chicken, with or without bones. And, of course, if using leftover baked chicken go to step 3 where veggies are added.
So many nice paella-like recipes out there, but since I didn't find one listed for how we make it, ' thought I'd share. Besides the sausage and mussels, we often add any leftover meats we might have, like steak or chicken, chopped up. I don't like to waste food.
A savory twist on the traditional sweet version, with sweet corn and rice. My DH found this recipe in the local paper, it's from Donald Link, chef of Herbsaint in New Orleans. I always substitute whole brown rice for white, but either way these are quick and great for a side with breakfast or dinner , or all by themselves. Also easy with leftover rice
This is an adaptation of Kittencal's recipe#69173. I wanted to be able to enjoy meatballs without the fat and had not, until now, found a good recipe for turkey meatballs. I made her delicious ones for the kids and hubby, but changed it up with turkey and extras for me(and my waistline). They are not dry and the flavor is slightly sweet from the basil. I usually have these with homemade pasta sauce and ww pasta.
This is a GH recipe that is a unique way to have lamb. I have also done
this with bone-in pork chops. It's very simple and goes well with rice
or potato. The gravy is delicious and a great way to sneak veggies into
Had enough green-bean casserole? I found this in BHG cookbook. I'ts creamy and delicious and always requested for family gatherings. It calls for cheese but I always omit as it has plenty of flavor without it.
