Tater Tot Casserole

(This is bad for you..but it’s OH so good!)

One pound ground beef

One bag of Tater Tots

One can of Cream of Chicken

Shredded Cheese (it’s much better if you buy the block of cheese and shred your own if you have time)

Worcestershire Sauce

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Brown meat, while meat is cooking add Worcestershire Sauce to flavor meat.  Add as much or as little as you’d like.  Once meat is cooked place in a casserole dish.  Add the can of cream of chicken and spread over meat.  Add a layer of cheese.  Then add a layer of tater-tots.  I like to add a LOT of tots!  Next, add a layer of cheese over the tots.  Cook for 35-40 minutes until tots are brown and cripsy.

Chicken Tenders that aren’t all that bad for you.

I got this from the Cook This, Not That cookbook.  They are actually really easy to make and very yummy!

Planko Bread Crumbs (like normal breadcrumbs but they are better)

Chicken Tenders

2 Egg Whites

Salt & Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 450.  Put egg whites in a bowl.  Pour a large handful of breadcrumbs on a plate, salt & pepper the breadcrumbs.  Salt & Pepper the chicken.  Dip the tenders in the bowl of egg whites and coat.  Put the tenders on the plate with the bread crumbs and cover the tenders with breadcrumbs.  Place on baking sheet.  Cook in pre-heated oven for 12-14 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked.  I like to use Ranch dressing to dip them in, which completely knocks out the healthy factor..but oh man they are good!

Beef and Bean Chowder

This is an adapted recipe I got from a friend..I have no idea where it came from but it’s one of my favorites.  I make it every time it snows.

1 pound ground beef (you could prob. use turkey but I never have…my friend uses ground sausage..yuck!)

30 oz tomato sauce

4 cans of kidney beans (I like to do a mix of light and dark because it makes it oh so pretty!)

3 cloves of garlic (or more if you’re feeling saucy)

1 quart water

Lawry’s Season Salt (I use lots of it)

4 potatoes (cubed)

1 onion (chopped however you like.  I leave ’em big because I love onion)

Italian Seasoning (again..lots!)

Brown meat in large skillet, drain fat & add to pot.  Then add all the ingredients except the potatoes.  Stir & let simmer covered for one hour.  In the meantime wash potatoes & cut into small cubes.  I like to leave the skin on but you can do whatever floats your boat.  Throw potatoes into the pot & cook until tender.  You can also add a green pepper at this point if you want too, I don’t because green peppers are the devils peppery fingers.

    I’ve been thinking. And I think I’m going to steal your idea. I’m going to start a “Sunday Supper” post where every Sunday I blog about the good, easy, eat we had during the week. Maybe between the two of us we could start a cookbook.
