Default Easy To Remember Recipe Exchange

After reading the cookbook thread I thought it might be nice to exchange recipes that are so easy you don't even have to get out the recipe card to make them. So please share your, O' so easy recipes. Here's one a friend of mine gave me. Her philosophy is if she needs a recipe card it's too difficult, just open a bag of salad and slap a chicken breast on it.

Dijon Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (still frozen is fine)
Dijon Mustard
Whipping Cream (pint like little milk, not Cool Whip)

Put chicken breasts in 9x13 pan.
Spead 1-2 tablespoons mustard on each breast.
Pour whipping cream over chicken.
Cover with foil and bake @400 for 30 minutes. (45 min if frozen)
Take off foil and bake for 30 minutes.
That's it.

I like to serve this over rice. My 5 & 7 year old girls love this meal. They also both know how to cook this one by themselves. Hmmm, could be why it's a favorite. After you cook this once you'll never forget how. Super easy, you just need to have the hour available to cook it.

Just a note my girls HATE mustard. I will not eat dijon mustard because it's so strong. And still, this dish is a family favorite. Go figure.

So how about sharing your super easy recipes.

My Favorite Summer Drink

"Bootleggers"

1 12oz container frozen lemonade
1 12oz container frozen limeade
1 package fresh mint

Take one of the frozen juices and dump into a food processor. Add the whole package of mint, minus the stems. Process. Pour into a freezer-proof container. Add the other container of juice and stir. Keep in freezer. Then, when you want a drink, add a couple of spoonfuls of the bootlegger mixture to a tall glass. Stir in some club soda and mix. Add more club soda, add ice and that's the virgin version. My kids LOVE this.

After they go to bed, my husband and I add a shot of citrus flavored vodka to our glasses and mix as mentioned above. HEAVENLY!
I like my mint more "leafy" like so I don't over process it. My neighbor on the otherhand, can't stand to see leaf bits floating in her drink so she processes the you know what out of it. Personal preference I guess.

Pasta Bake
1 box of rotini pasta (or your favorite kind)
1 jar of spaghetti sauce (big jar, your favorite kind)
1 to 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef or turkey (you can even leave out the meat)
1 sm. package moz. cheese
1 sm. pkg. parm. cheese

preheat oven to 400 deg.
Boil noodles and drain
Brown meat (drain grease)
mix spaghetti sauce w/meat
mix, sauce/meat mixture w/noodles in 9x13 baking pan
mix in a little moz. and parm. cheese, sprinkle a little extra on the top.
Bake for 20 min.

Very easy and good, this is a family favorite. I've made this so many times I could do it in my sleep.

Salisbury Steak (my 10 yo DD would eat this three times a day)

1 or 2 frozen hamburger patties per person, sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder
Fry in frying pan until browned.

for every 5 patties use:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup dry wine (color depends on if you mind purple gravy--we dont, but if you do, use white wine)
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes

Pour soup, wine, and flakes over patties in pan. Cover, lower heat, and cook till gravy happens. Serve over mashed potatoes (instant if you are in a hurry).

Talking Add a Couple Things

Chef2Die4's Salisbury Steak could be a one dish meal like what we call White Glop at my house (glop is the sound it makes as it hits the plate). Add as much frozen corn as you want, let bubble for a little bit, then serve over Minute Rice. I'll try the wine with mine, next time.

A one dish meal would be this with the hamburger browned and drained in the pan, adding the cream of mushroom soup and wine, making the sauce a little runnier, add the frozen corn, heat through, and then just dump a cup or so of Minute Rice in there, pop a lid on and five minutes later, voila, white glop!

Variation: Use a large can of tomato sauce and voila, red glop!

Default Here's an easy dessert

We have the main meal and a beverage so here's dessert

Dump cake
2 cans pie filling - any flavor
1 box white cake mix
1 stick butter
1 carton Cool Whip

Preheat oven to 350. Dump pie filling in bottom of 9x13 pan and spread to the corners (don't think it needs to be greased, but I did spray a little Pam in it this time). Pour the dry cake mix over the top and spread that out. Cut up a stick of butter and put on top of cake mix. Bake for 1 hour. When cool top with Cool Whip.
Variation: Use lemon cake mix with strawberry pie filling and spread strawberry Cool Whip over.

WHITE GLOP!!! RED GLOP!!!! I am laughing so hard right now, but I am at work, and I work at the LIBRARY!!!! Thanks guys, for getting me in trouble.... By the way, recipe sounds good...

Another favorite of ours -- use as a side dish for any grilled beast you care to have:
1 can whole kernel corn (vacuum packed tastes better), drained
1 can black beans, drained and well rinsed
1 small can chopped green chilies
1 can sliced olives, drained

Mix all together. Add 1/4 cup olive oil and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, then salt and pepper to taste. Makes a great relish--really wonderful with grilled salmon.

Thanks, Heather. Glad to get a fellow SCS'r into trouble at work! Called DH in to read your reply to my post. He laughed a lot, too! But it's true, white glop is easier to say than salisbury corn skillet. Your side dish looks yummie. Will have to try that one!

Really love your avatar. I really miss C & H!

This is my DHs favorite! He'll go to the store to buy all the ingredients if I'll just agree to make it! Quick & easy!

Tater tot casserole

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
2 c. cheddar cheese
1 bag frozen tater tots

Brown beef & onion & drain. Place in bottom of casserole dish. Combine soups & spread over beef. Cheese on top next. Tater tots on top last. Bake in preheated oven for the amount of time the tater tots need to cook. (usually 425 for 20 minutes)

We just had one of my family's favorite no-recipe meals. It's just plain old Beef and Noodles.

Brown stew beef with a little butter and chopped onion. When brown pour in a little water and simmer for an hour. Mix some eggs, salt and flour till a stiff dough forms. Turn out onto a floured board and kneed in as much flour as you can. Roll thin and cut into thin noodles. Add more water to the beef pot, throw in the noodles and a bit of Kitchen Bouquet. Simmer till the noodles are soft. All the flour from the noodles mixes with the water as they cook and you end up with a gravy like sauce. We serve it with mashed potatoes. It feels like a lead weight in your belly when you are done eating but they seem to love it. This was one of the noon dinners Grandma use to serve on the farm.

My family also loves Chicken and dumplings which is pretty much the same recipe as the Beef and Noodles except no kitchen bouquet and add a bit of Chicken boullion and some diced up celery and carrots. Oh, and cut the noodles much fatter.

BTW, that Tator Tot casserole someone posted... That was one of the favorite meals I made when I was a cook at a daycare except we used frozen diced chicken for the meat part.

Smile Never Happen!

Make your own noodles! Knead anything! Not gonna happen in this child's kitchen. Easy is opening the bag of noodles! Sounds real good otherwise.

As for the tater tot casserole above, my sister does it with crumbled up sausage, browned and drained, and somewhere in there is cream cheese, not cheese soup. Will ask her for recipe. Before my recipes went into storage, I made it with leftover cheddy brots cut up in it. Sometimes, I would cook up cheddy brots just for that casserole!

It is soooo much easier than it sounds. The worst part is cleaning up the flour mess when I'm done.

Default Crab Rangoon

I love these and everyone gobbles them up when I make them


1 pkg cream cheese
1 can crab meat
chopped up green onions ( as many or few as you like)
1 pkg wonton wraps

Stir all together. Put a spoonful in the middle of the wraps and fold over. Then deep fry them until done,, only takes a few mintues. I serve with hot mustard.

I use a little bowl of warm water and dip my finger in and put around outside of wrap so they hold together better. Enjoy



I can't wait to try some of these other recipes out TFS

Clean up on flour/kneading messes is really easy if you have a kitchen scraper. Looks like a flat sheet of stainless steel, about the size of an index card, with one long end rolled over on itself to make something to hold on to. You can buy them for about 6 dollars at any kitchen store. Just hold them at a 45 degree angle to the counter and scrape the flour and dough bits into a trash can! Then wipe off the dust...or let your kids do it!

Another great recipe our family loves:
Caramel popcorn:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
pinch salt
Cook, stirring, in a deep pot till sugars melt and the sauce boils. Then boil WITHOUT STIRRING about 8 minutes, or until it kind of drips in sheets off the spoon. If you undercook, it will not set up, if you overcook it will taste like crackerjack. Either way, you have about 3 or 4 minutes leeway.

Meanwhile, microwave 2 bags of movie theatre butter popcorn. Pour into a big greased bowl. Pour cooked caramel over, and toss with a wooden spoon until coated. Let sit to cool, or it will burn the skin off your fingers. To clean up the pan and spoon, boil the pan full of water gently on the stove for about 3 minutes.

Love this thread! Gonna try several of these! Here's our family fave:

Yummy Chicken

Place 4 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts in baking dish

top with 4 slices swiss cheese

spoon 1 can cream of chicken soup over top (don't dilute)

melt 1/2 stick butter, add 1/2 cup water, mix with about 4 c. stuffing crumbs (either Stove Top or Pepperidge Farm-type). sprinkle this over the chicken, cheese, soup.

Bake 350 about 1 hour.



This is so good!


The original recipe had 1 1/2 sticks butter and no water. Very tasty!

This is a super easy way to make Sloppy Joes.

Put 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger (raw) in a pot with 1 diced green pepper and 1 diced onion. Squirt in some ketchup... just empty whatever is left in the ketchup jar. Now cook and stir. It gets better if you let it simmer a while after the meat's all cooked. If you have a lot of ketchup on hand you can adjust till the color/tastes suits you. This freezes really well so I usually double it and then divide the leftovers into quart freezer bags for quick meals later.

My family loves this! We add: a bag of frozen veggies (broc, caul. & carrot mix) and we don't use the cheddar cheese soup. May have to try it though!

Talking Sounds gross but oh so good

Cranberry Chicken

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 can Ocean Spray wholeberry cranberry sauce
1 8oz bottle Catalina salad dressing
1 packet onion soup mix

In a 2 QT casserole, mix the cranberry sauce, salad dressing & soup mix until blended, it looks weird put the chicken on top, bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. This makes the best sweet and tangy sauce, REALLY!!! it does . We serve this over rice.
I am a big fan of one dish meals. You can add a little molasses (sp?) if you have it , or use regular french also, I have done it both ways and both are yummy.
Enjoy

Default Linguine and Clams

Here's my bestest recipe. It's my DH's absolute favorite, and it's so easy to make.

Melt a couple tablespoons of butter along with 1/2 c olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced. When garlic is heated (not browned) add the juice from one can of chopped or minced clams. I also add about 1/4 cup of clam juice from a bottle. Add salt, pepper, and marjoram to taste. (I use at least 1/2 teaspoon marjoram. Sometimes more.) Let reduce for 5 minutes, then turn heat to low. Add clams from the can (you used the juice earlier). Add parsley... amount is up to you -- a tablespoon or two. Cover and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve over hot linguine, adding parmesan cheese if you'd like.

It's so yummy. Even if you don't think you like clams, this recipe is SO good. It's very rich and very satisfying. It's the one thing DH wants me to make when we have guests, and he's a total food snob.

If anyone gets the chance to try the recipe, let me know what you think of it. I absolutely love it, and it's so quick and easy.

Your linguini and clams recipe sounds a lot like mine, except I add about half a cup of heavy cream before the final simmer. YUM!!

Another recipe:
Crock pot roast (really good for winter)
1 beef roast that will fit in your crock pot
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup red wine
two garlic cloves, pressed (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder NOT GARLIC SALT)

dump in crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve over mashed potatoes. If your roast is thawed (8-10 hours is with a frozen roast), then you can cook on high about 4-5 hours, which makes this a perfect Sunday dinner recipe.

If you don't have a beef roast, use a pork roast and a 16 oz jar of salsa, omitting wine, soups, etc. Serve with corn pudding: 1 box jiffy corn muffin mix, 1 can creamed corn, 1 cup sour cream, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup sugar. Bake in well greased pan till golden. Scoop to serve.

Saute 1 chopped onion, 2 stalks celery & 1 green pepper in olive oil. Add a package of crab meat (the fake stuff!) Melt 1 stick butter over this & sprinkle with dill weed & garlic powder. Stir in 1/2 package of coooked wide noodles.

Serve with a tossed salad & dinner rolls. Hope you enjoy this one!

Smile Testimonial!

I can attest that Deb's Yummy Chicken is just that. Last night I made it with Stove Top's smallest round box (held 4 cups) and put a lid on the casserole dish. Came out perfect. Russel declared it a keeper and is not going to complain about having it again tonight.

Sara's Dump Cake was also great, though I halved it as it's just DH and I. I used an 8X8 square pan, 1 can of apple pie filling, 1 Jiffy Cake yellow cake mix and half a stick of butter. It turned out a lot like apple Betty with a crunchy topping. We're having the rest of it tonight. When I told DH it can be made with any pie filling, his ears perked up!

Thanks ladies!

Here's an easy one. My DS16 has been able to make this, with appropriate supervision, since he was 4. It sounds gross, but most of our family loves this. (My mom used to make it when I was a kid - I have one sister who doesn't like it but otherwise we all love it.)


Hot Dog Creole
package of hot dogs, diced
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 can of corn
chili powder, to taste

Heat. Serve over hot noodles. The end. If you want to get very fancy you can use Mexicorn (corn with green and red peppers). Then again, if you're talking hot dogs, it's not gonna be fancy no matter how you dress it up. LOL


Cheers,

Her philosophy is if she needs a recipe card it's too difficult, just open a bag of salad and slap a chicken breast on it.

Dijon Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (still frozen is fine)
Dijon Mustard
Whipping Cream (pint like little milk, not Cool Whip)

Put chicken breasts in 9x13 pan.
Spead 1-2 tablespoons mustard on each breast.
Pour whipping cream over chicken.
Cover with foil and bake @400 for 30 minutes. (45 min if frozen)
Take off foil and bake for 30 minutes.
That's it.

I like to serve this over rice.
OMG!!! I just made this for dinner last night and it's honestly one of the yummiest chicken recipes EVER! I used a brew pub dark mustard (don't think it was dijon) and it was very mild, but soooo good! I served it over rice and I will DEFINITELY be making this again soon.........as soon as I go get more whipping cream!

Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

Jennifer, I'm glad you enjoyed the Dijon Chicken recipe. How easy was that meal to fix! Now that I'm back from my little Alaskan adventure I'm exhausted and printing off recipes as I'm typing this. Always nice to have a simple delish meal when you need it. Thanks for all of the recipes everyone.

Default Mexicorn Cheese Dip!

This is a really simple recipe for dip! It doesn't look to appealing but is just to die for! My husband could make himself sick on this.

1 can Mexicorn
1/2 c. Sour Cream
1/2 c. Real Mayo
1 pkg. Shredded cheddar cheese
3 Green onions, chopped

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Serve with crackers.

Okay ladies...warning for those who get creative with their recipes....Dijon Chicken recipe doesn't work with half and half...it separates (still tastes great but doesn't look so appetizing).

Am making with the heavy stuff Monday.

Anyone have a recipe to add? I just love this thread...more time to stamp!

Cheap and Easy (just like me!)

Mix together.
1 can tuna, drained
1 cup milk
1 can cheddar cheese soup
2 tbls minced onion

Place 1 pkg Hungry Jack Biscuits in 9X13 pan. Pour soup mix over biscuits. Bake at 350 for half an hour. If you like, sprinkle some cheddar shreds over biscuits before baking.

Serve with choice of green veggie, tomato slices, applesauce or tossed salad.

This is a favorite of my family even if it does 'sound' yucky.

A friend made this dip for a party.....everyone just raved about it.....she would not give out the recipe. After the party and most of the guests had left, I pried the recipe out of her.

1 container of pimento cheese
1 jar of salsa

Mix the two ingredients together and serve with chips.

How easy does it get?

Rainsong, cheap and easy is good. Gonna try that one. Sounds like my kind of meal. The chicken and dump cake does sound awful, doesn't it? Good thing that though they cook in the oven at the same time, they are in separate pans. LOL

Our family likes Hot Chicken Salad:

1/2 cup slivered almonds (toasted if you want--bake in single layer @350 degrees until lightly browned--be careful, they burn easily)
3-4 cups cooked cubed chicken breast meat
2 c chopped celery
1 can sliced water chestnuts, well drained
1/2 small onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder (NOT GARLIC SALT)
1/2 c sour cream
1/2 c mayonnaise
pepper to taste
potato chips

Mix everything but the potato chips in a big bowl. Spread in pan. Crush potato chips, sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 until hot (about 20 minutes or so). Serve with rolls and a big juicy watermelon. Great for summer.
