If you haven't noticed from my most recent blogs, I'm trying to be more crafty and organized, and a betty crocker in the kitchen. For this reason, I joined a orgjunkie where moms post their menu plans every week (Menu Planning Monday). This gives people a chance to show their creativity with menu planning, and share recipes off one another's blog. I didn't really menu plan for this week, but i'll share the recipes from last night and tonight!
Monday: Mini Meat Loaves
2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion-finely chopped (you might opt to use half of an onion and make sure its FINELY chopped!)
2 packets instant oatmeal
2 large eggs
¾ cup ketchup
½ cup lowfat milk
2 tbs worchestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
glaze: 1/3 cup ketchup
3 tbs. light brown sugar
Heat over to 375.
In a large bowl, mix meat, onion, instant oatmeal, eggs, ketchup, milk, worchestershire sauce and salt. Divide meat mixture into 8 servings and shape into individual loaves. Pleace meat loaves in 9x13 baking pan.
Glaze- in a small bowl, blend ketchup and brown sugar. Brush top and sides of meat loaves.
Bake 35-40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes.
Tuesday: King Ranch Chicken
Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
10-12 corn tortillas
1 can Ro-Tel (Original!)
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup chicken broth (or 1 can)
1 onion, chopped
8 oz. Sour Crème
¼ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 lb. cheese grated (you can use a variety for different flavors; I usually buy the 3 cheese Mexican, already shredded)
Cook chicken (I do it in the crock pot; add 1 cup water). Shred or cube when its done.
Put the chicken broth in a small saucepan, simmer
Dip tortillas in chicken broth, tear into strips, layer the bottom of a casserole
Put chicken on top of tortillas
Combine all other ingredients except the cheese. Stir thoroughly.
Pour mixture over chicken.
Top with cheese.
Cover with foil, cook at 350-degrees for 45 minutes.
Remove from oven, take off foil and let it stand for about 10 minutes before serving…
