Here are a few quick fixes from the pantry for your someday!
3 INGREDIENT MEATLOAF
1 lb. ground beef (or whatever ground you have)
1 pkg. stuffing mix (like Stovetop or cheap brand or home mix)
1 C water
Mix all three ingredients together and form into muffin tins. Bake at 375* for about 35 minutes. Nice size for individual servings and easy to freeze.
**Slice horizontally to make leftover meatloaf sandwiches!!!
COWBOY SKILLET CASSEROLE
Approx. 1 lb. ground meat - depending on whatever else you use
diced peppers, onions, etc.
1 can baked beans or chili beans (or whatever you have)
1 pkg. taco seasoning (or equivalent home mix)
1 can corn - drained
****Seriously you can add together whatever you have available**** No strict rules here!!!
Fry up meat and fresh veggies - add others (all in a cast iron skillet)
1 pkg. cornbread mix
1/3 C milk
Mix these 3 together and pour over all over the other ingredients. Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes until top is browned.
Super easy and cheap one pot meal.
EASY FUN PANCAKES
1 pack of Martha White muffin mix - 7.4 oz. (or other brands) - comes in so many flavors
2/3 C milk
Blend together and make as normal pancakes. Makes about 7 regular size pancakes.
MINI POT PIES
Lightly grease your muffin tins.
1/2 C Bisquick or similar mix
1/2 C milk
Place about 1 Tablespoon of mixture in each muffin spot (normal size muffin) more if using giant muffin tins
Top mixture with about 1/4 cup of leftovers you have - taco meat, chili, stew, beefy cheese mac, broccoli/cheese, you name it - there are no limits to what can be added!!! Clean out that frig.!!!!!!!
Top with another tablespoon of biscuit mix
Bake at 375* for about 25 - 30 minutes.
Yummy bites for meal, breakfast, or snack. Easy to freeze as well.
Hope this helps someone on a busy day or day when the cupboard is getting bare and you need an idea or two.
I always love having easy ideas on hand. My motto - keep it simple!!!!!!
ENJOY your pantry and have fun!
