Vegetarian Chili with pita bread. Always a favorite!
Vegetarian Chili with pita bread. Always a favorite!
Tater Tot casserole isn’t healthy, but super easy and good in a mac and cheese kind of way. Just brown one pound of hamburger and put it in the bottom of a casserole dish. Put about 3/4 bag of tater tots on top. Mix one can cream of chicken, one can cream of mushroom and one can of evaporated milk. Pour on top. Bake for an hour at, I believe, 350. You might want to google for the exact temp.
I also love all things mexican, breakfast for dinner, dirty rice, big salads, burgers, chili and pasta with either homemade or jarred sauce.
My Fiance loves this recipe….
Bake 4 boneless skinless chicken breast
when done put a piece of swiss cheese on top of each breast
pour can of cream of mushroom soup over breast I mixed with a can of milk)
then sprinkle dry stove top stuffing over that and bake just enough to warm up the soup and melt the cheese.
Its our favorite thing to eat for dinner.
i get a casseole dish pour in a half cup of Worcestershire and 2 tblspoon butter and you gotta let it mix together. put in a few chicken breasts and season’em up im a big fan of lemon pepper with this but u can put whatever i also like to add red pepper flakes and pop this in the oven at 350 for about 35 min and make white jasmine rice (i have a rice cooker that i also add a bit of olive oil in) and put the cooked chicken and juices over the rice.
i made it up so im not sure if the measurments are right…
also a goodin’ is chicken breast wrapped in bacon at 375 for 40 min then add a slice of swiss for another 5 min

We’re boring and tend to make the same ol’ stuff if we’re not eating out, so these recipes will help me come across domesticated to him, hahaha!
Tater Tot Casserole
1lb of browned hamburger
1 can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup
1 can of green beans
(some times I add corn- but I only like homemade canned corn, not the stuff from the store)
mix it all together, layer in a glass casserole dish (I usually double it and use a big dish)
Layer sliced velveeta (or any) cheese across the top
Spread out the tater tots completely covering the casserole and cook in oven according to tot’s directions.
I usually broil for the last minute to make the tots crispy.
my fiance LOOOOOOOVES this and its so easy.
southwest turkey chili verde….it is actually a weight watchers recipe but so good you’d never know! PM me if you want the recipe
This one is my new favorite. I just cooked it tonight!
Rub 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning onto both sides of a porkchop and pan fry on medium heat (7 minutes on each side). Add salt & pepper to taste.
In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup white wine, 1/3 cup of white balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 cup of strawberry jam. When the porkchop has cooked, remove it from the pan and pour the wine mixture in. Bring it to a boil and stir frequently until it has thickened. Once it has thickened, add 1 1/2 cups of chopped strawberries and cook for an additional minute.
Serve the porkchops on a bed of baby spinac and then pour the strawberry glaze over the porkchops and spinach. I also add goat cheese grumbles and crushed up walnuts.
It was AMAZING and the whole thing barely took 25 minutes to cook.
Whooooamygosh. ENCHILADAS! They are the easiest recipe. I discovered them from a TV show recipe (MR FOOD) on cinco de mayo and it’s quick, cheap, easy, and TASTY! They are on my non-wedding blog, I’ll PM you the link so I’m not all promotion-y and breaking WB rules.
lots of good ideas there ladies!! It gets tough thinking of meals all the time!
1lb to 1 1/2lb hamburger (I like a little more meat) browned
1 to 1 1/2 bags Simply Potatoes sliced (or just plain old very thinly sliced russets its just faster to use the precut potatoes and it tastes the same)
1 can cream of celery
1 can cream of onion
1-2 cans french green beans
Mix the two cans of soup together in a bowl. In a casserole dish – Layer potatoes, meat, green beans, potatoes, soup, meat, green beans, potatoes, soup, etc
Bake at 375 until a fork goes through easily (about 1 to 1 1/2 hours)
A few of my favorites:
Kicked Up Sausage Macaroni and Cheese (You’ll never eat “regular” mac & cheese again!)
Florida Seafood Casserole (And I love the leftovers from this for breakfast/brunch!)
Balsamic-Glazed Swordfish with Capers and Grape Tomato—Arugula Rice (It’s the 3rd varation on the recipe in the link. This is what I make when I want something that looks really fancy, it’s very pretty on the plate and looks like something you’d get in a restuarant.)
this is a fabulous post, keep ’em coming!
here is my contribution, even though it’s more of a side dish:
creamy corn casserole
I add sliced jalapenos on top just before baking. YUM! CHEAP! and EASY!
I cook almost every night to save $ and calories– here are some of our regular ideas. Some of them may not seem like “health” food but I keep track of my calories using the LoseIt app on my iPhone and usually save about 600 for dinner:
