Ham, Potato and Green Bean Casserole – Crock Pot Dinner

As I mentioned in my last post, I cut the lawn on Wednesday and it is a long process so I wanted to get some ready to cook in the crock pot so that when dinner came along all I had to do was to dish it out.

This is a very easy recipe to make and is full of flavour. It is also a great alternative for using leftover ham!

Pulled Pork Mac & Cheese

I made a nice pork tenderloin the other night for dinner. I had some leftovers but not enough for another meal. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it… then I remembered seeing a Pulled Pork Mac & Cheese somewhere awhile back and decided this was what I was going to make.

With a nice creamy cheese sauce, BBQ sauce and the pulled pork itself, it was a delicious dinner that “the boys” loved! And it used up my leftovers!

(Instapot) Brown Rice Beef Burrito Bowl

The other night I made another great Instapot meal. I have been impressed with everything I have tried to make in it. I was a bit worried when I first got it because I wasn’t all the sure on the “how” it worked but I am really enjoying modifying recipes to make in the Instapot.

I think the Instapot will also be a great cooking means come summer…. I can still make great “indoor” meals without having to turn on the oven!

“Jerk” Burgers

Chris and Dillon LOVE the Jerk seasoning I make. Chris especially loves it on wings, even though I bake them in the oven and don’t deep fry them. While they are much healthier because of not deep frying them, for him it’s the flavour. I have made Jerk chicken wings, chicken thighs, drumsticks and now burgers.

With our BBQ still not being ready/replaced yet, I just threw these burgers in the frying pan, toasted the buns in the oven and they loved them! Lots of flavour and adding a slice of baked pineapple sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg on top was an added taste to the Jerk Burgers!

I find burgers hard to photograph…. and they probably would have looked better in the pictures if I had used smaller buns lol… but here they are!

Spicy Turkey Meatballs

I would have to say that meatballs are definitely on the favourites list in this house. Whether they are turkey, chicken, beef, or whatever, they just love meatballs lol.

When Dillon was little, every time I asked him what he wanted to have for his birthday dinner, it was always meatballs and always in a sweet and sour sauce by a brand called Diana. Those were his absolute favourite. He didn’t care what was served with them, he just cared about getting the meatballs.

While he is now a man, meatballs are still a favourite so I try to change them up and make different flavours often. This is one of those recipes.

Crock Pot (Quick and Easy) Pork Tenderloin

There is nothing like throwing a few things in the crock pot and then going back hours later to a delicious meal. When I cook this, I almost wish I ate pork because it smells SO good when it’s cooking!

This recipe is quick and easy to prepare and tastes delicious covered in the sauce/gravy made while cooking!

Poor Man’s Steak

This is a recipe I clipped years ago from a magazine or something and I always meant to try.  Even though it took years for me to actually try it, it was well worth the wait.  Chris and Dillon loved it!  As Chris was eating he was talking about what else we could put the “sauce/gravy” on lol.  If only he knew what it was made from and how easy it is!

I think almost everyone has a club pack or few pounds of ground beef in their freezers…. add some milk, crackers, spices and some condensed (or homemade condensed) soups for the “white gravy,” and you have a great main dish for your dinner!
