Make it Your Way Overnight Casserole

Do you love the convenience of mixing everything together and having it ready to cook later?  If you do, this Overnight Casserole is just that.  You can easily make it your own by switching the soup, meat and vegetables.  Use all veggies if you know someone that is on a no meat tangent, like one of my twins.  Toss in some fresh herbs to make it pop with flavor.  Your meal...make it the way you and your family like it.

Potatoes and Ham Soup

This brings back memories of my precious Mama cooking newly dug potatoes from the garden.  I would have to wash the dirt off and place them on dry grass to dry, turning them over to ensure even drying.  There is nothing better than fresh potatoes that have simmered on the stove, either with a cream sauce..Potatoes and Cream Sauce, or with a hunk of leftover ham.  Mama always put a lot of pepper in her potatoes and would sometimes but garden peas in with the cream sauce.   I started out not making this to write down and just added a little here and more there.  Adjust the recipe to suit.  Do you have a potato memory?  ~smile~

Stuffing Bites

What do you do with all the leftover dressing/stuffing you have from the feast you cooked yesterday?  Make stuffing bites, of course!  You don't even had to wait for leftovers..just mix a box or bag of stuffing according to directions, add whatever you want to it, form into a shape, pan fry or bake.  There you go..simple and perfect!  Great for watching the game, as appetizers for your guest, or just popping in your mouth while wrapping presents!  Enjoy! 


Stuffing Bites

Form leftover dressing/stuffing into shapes.  Spray skillet with non stick spray.  Brown bites on all sides.  Serve with Strawberry Cranberry Sauce or cranberry sauce.  Enjoy!

Refrigerator...Pantry Dip

Your child will love dipping veggies and homemade tortilla triangles in this quick and easy dip.  Look in your refrigerator and get leftover beans, meat and whatever veggies you have.  Or, look in your pantry and open cans of beans and vegetables,  add any leftover meat you have in the refrigerator to make this dip.  If this is going in your child's lunch...Remember to put Ice Packs, drinks, yogurt and/or fruit to keep their lunch cold.   You can leave the meat out also. 

My Boys went in the pantry and pulled out different cans for their dip.  They then went to the refrigerator and brought back more ingredients.  Here is the result...YUMMY!

Refrigerator...Pantry Dip

From the pantry:

Can of pinto beans
Can of tomatoes
Can whole kernel corn

From the refrigerator:

Green bell pepper
Sweet onion
Leftover chicken
shredded cheese, they usually grab string cheese to pull apart

salt and pepper to taste 

Puree pinto beans.  Add tomatoes and corn without liquid...puree.  Add 1/4 cup bell pepper and onion and a chicken breast....puree.  Stir in shredded cheese.  Salt and pepper to taste. 

Just get your leftovers out of the refrigerator, puree and serve as a dip or inside a burrito. I had leftover field peas, creamed corn, sliced tomatoes, celery, onion, carrots and red pepper.  I pureed all to make another great combination.

For Tortilla Triangles:  Cut flour tortillas into triangles.  Spray cookie sheet and lightly spray triangles.  Sprinkle with salt.  Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes turn if browned and cook for 3-5 more minutes or until crispy. 

Instead of salt you can sprinkle with parmesand cheese or cinnamon sugar for a treat.
