Steak Fajitas

Advertisements

Fajitas are delicious and very easy to make. I made these tortillas too, which only took another 20-25 minutes. I halved this recipe and made 8 tortillas instead of making 10, but this recipe makes enough filling for 10 six to eight inch tortillas. This recipe is very easy, and if you wanted to, you could also make this dish without the steak, and it would be just as good. Otherwise the recipe is what I made. My spices are a bit on the weak side, so you might need to reduce the amount of Cumin and Cayenne. This recipe makes 3-5 servings since 2-3 Fajitas is enough to feed one adult.

Smash Burgers with Quick Fondant Potatoes and Acorn Squash

Advertisements

Smash burgers are a classic form of burger that doesn’t need any altering. You simply form balls, place them onto a hot skillet or flat top, smash them thin with your spatula, then season with salt and pepper and cook one minute per side. These burgers are always delicious and are super easy to make. You can also make a lot with only a little bit of meat, which is another huge plus! Beyond that, I also made fondant potatoes and squash to go with these burgers. Fondant potatoes usually take a while to make since you cut your potatoes into large patties then cook them covered for almost an hour. This recipe makes it all so much easier, and adds a different flavor and texture with added squash. The savory broth adds amazing flavor to these potatoes and makes fondant potatoes one of my very favorite forms of potatoes. We also served this meal with a side of sliced dill pickles, and they were delicious! This recipe makes 8 burgers, which is 8 adult servings, and 5 servings of the fondant potato and squash side.

French Toast Casserole

Advertisements

This is a simple recipe that easily makes 8-10 servings. It’s as simple as soaking up the egg mixture, like you would to make french toast on the stove top, then baking it until it’s done! For this recipe, I used a loaf of homemade bread. My bread was very heavy so it took a while to absorb all the egg mixture. If you use a store bought loaf, you will probably need to whole loaf too, but if your in doubt, dip in two batches. Otherwise the recipe seems pretty straight forward, so I don’t have anything else to advise on. This recipe make 8 very large servings for us, so cutting it into 10 would be the better option.

Steaks and Stuffing

Advertisements

This is just a recipe for a meal I made last week. This was a new stuffing I had never made before. I had heard people usually use broth in their stuffing, so I thought it would be good to make a more healthy stuffing that the one I usually make with only butter. For this recipe, I used a half loaf of Homemade bread. Since homemade bread is so much more dense than normal bread, you’ll want to make sure your store bread is either an artisan thick bread, or that your store bought bread is one the stale side, or you could alternatively make it croutons before using it in this recipe. This stuffing was very good. The broth is very forward, and the spices are very evenly present. The butter adds a bit of fat to the dish and a bit of salt, but season as you like. As for the steaks, I just cooked them by themselves like an ordinary steak. You could add butter after the flip and baste during the final side, but I chose not to. I also added a bit of oil at the beginning of the cooking for the steaks, because I have very lean steaks. I served these steaks with some A1. The steaks were able to serve 2 adults, and the stuffing was enough to serve 3 adults.

What You Will Need

  • 1 Stalk Celery, Diced
  • 1/2 Onion, Diced
  • 1/4 Cup Butter, 1/2 a Stick

  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 2 tsp Ground Sage
  • 2 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 2 Steaks, 1 Inch Thick
  • Frying Pan
  • Medium Sauce pan

Directions

1. First, heat saucepan over medium heat. Add butter, celery and onion, and cook until onion is tender. Place Frying pan over medium heat. Add bread, broth, and spices to the stuffing. Reduce heat to low, and stir every 1-2 minutes until all broth is absorbed. Remove from heat once very hot.

2. Once the frying pan is hot, add the steaks. Cook for 4 minutes on the first side, and 3 minutes on the second for medium rare. Remove from heat, plate, and let rest for 5 minutes before enjoying your steak.

Cocktail Sauce Meatloaf

Advertisements

This meatloaf is a different experience from any other meatloaf you may have tried. The horseradish in the cocktail sauce is so potent, every bite has it’s flavor! This zesty meatloaf isn’t your mother’s meatloaf, it’s a different experience with more flavor and more textures. This meatloaf also doesn’t need any other sauce when you serve it since it has all the seasoning it could need. I made my own cocktail sauce for this recipe that was two parts ketchup to one part horseradish. If you make this yourself, start low on horseradish then adjust after. Also, letting the meatloaf rest is important if you want your slices to come out even partially intact. Finally, this recipe made 3 adult servings of meatloaf.
