Potatoes Anytime!….That’s My Motto, Ore-Ida®

31 Oct

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I cook every night but sometimes I get a hankering for something but I just don’t know what I want to eat….we’ve all been there. Hungry, but you just don’t know what you are hungry for…yep, that feeling!  I keep at least one bag of Ore-Ida® tater tots, crinkle fries, or hash browns in the freezer for times like that!

Let me show you some of the recipes I found this month to satisfy those hankerings!

I had eaten a late lunch and just wasn’t hungry for dinner BUT I was nibbly. So here is a quick and easy recipe to satisfy the nibbles! Cheese and Bacon on Fries…cannot go wrong there! YUM!

A few nights later….I wanted tater tots…man, oh man….these are so good! Bake the tots almost done first…also maybe use your favorite cheddar or pepper jack to make them your own! Can’t wait to make these again!

Every once in awhile, when you don’t know what to cook….How about breakfast for dinner? Yes, bacon and cheese again! But I LOVE BACON and CHEESE! I used the hash browns in this egg dish….easy to whip together!

AUTUMN—Great Time for Johnsonville® Sausage!

31 Oct

As the weather get a little cooler, there is nothing like having a warm home style pasta dish for dinner!  I always keep sausage in my freezer and I really love the spicy hot fresh sausage from Johnsonville.

The following recipes I made this past month were easy and can be made within 30 minutes.  Add a green salad and some garlic bread and you have a great hearty meal!  All of these recipes, heat up perfectly the next day for lunch (if you have leftovers…unlikely), BONUS!

I made this one for my sister when she dropped in for lunch one day a few weeks ago, we both loved it!

This is an easy one that tastes like pizza, but no delivery needed!

I had this one for dinner one night… with lots of fresh peppers I found at the Farmer’s Market on sale. This also works great on a hoagie bun or over pasta (as I had it that night).

I really enjoy the spicy hot sausage the best, but mild and other flavored types are available. Check your local grocer for the different flavors and you can usually find it next to cold cuts, in the fresh sausage area. Or check out their website: http://www.johnsonville.com/products.html

BISON For Dinner Anyone?

1 Oct

My Husband was from North Dakota so we spent at least one vacation per year visiting family in North and South Dakota over the past 20 years or so. I have gotten to see buffalo as they graze on the prairies and hills in Custer Park and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. You drive thru the parks and often have to wait for a stubborn buffalo to move out of the road so we could continue on. I have had Buffalo Burgers several times on our travels and always enjoyed them. So when I was offered a chance to make a meal with Bison I signed up right away! Buffalo is a very lean meat, not very strong tasting but flavorful. I do not find it gamey tasting at all and I think if you didn’t tell anyone what it was, I don’t think they could guess that it was BISON!
