As I titled this post Sausage and Grits Breakfast Casserole, I wondered if I was limiting it. I mean. I suppose you could have this for lunch or dinner, but I really feel like it’s a great breakfast dish. It would also be great for brunch. Sausage and Grits Breakfast Casserole is very versatile, and it’s approved by my family. Just so you know, getting […]
What are your “must have” spices? Every home cook has certain spices, or seasonings, that they always reach for. These are the dried spices, or spice blends, that absolutely have to be in their pantry in order for them to create meals. I was recently cleaning out my cabinets and discovered that I had many dried spices that I’ve only used once or twice. They […]
Making Ravioli Lasagna from canned ravioli seemed like a good idea, and the final product tasted good. Unfortunately, the servings didn’t look like I wanted them to. In spite of this, my family devoured this Ravioli Lasagna even though it was made from canned ravioli. Occasionally, my children would come home from school with a food request. Once, one of their friends had told them […]
Stuffed mushrooms are a favorite appetizer here at Patty Cake’s Pantry. We have two other recipes for stuffed mushrooms on our site. There’s the recipe for stuffed mushrooms that are made in the oven, and there’s the recipe for slow cooker stuffed mushrooms. These seafood stuffed mushrooms are inspired by a comment from my friend, Brenda. She mentioned in a comment on one of my […]
Italian Egg Rolls were something that I created one evening when we were trying to decide what to eat. I don’t really like to turn on the oven during the summer months, and I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods. It’s not for health reasons. It’s because it seems so time consuming, and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove while the […]
Carrot Hot Dogs are something that our friends have repeatedly asked if we have tried during our 30 days of vegan. To be honest, we had never heard of the carrot hot dog, so it wasn’t something we had planned to prepare. We had planned to grill some portabello mushrooms to use in place of burgers, but carrot hot dogs weren’t on our radar. After […]
Have you ever reached into the fridge to get barbecue sauce only to discover that there isn’t any? You have a few choices in this situation.
This is a simple and fool proof recipe for Alfredo sauce that’s rich and creamy. Sue Chef and Baker’s Man created it one day when we had no jars of Alfredo Sauce in the house. This recipe creates a quick and delicious sauce, and once you’ve made this homemade version, you will never buy the Alfredo sauce in jars again. Everyone thinks that Alfredo sauce […]
Sum Gum is a simple and delicious combination of ground beef, green beans, rice, and Asian inspired seasonings, and it’s a perfect simple supper. The best part is that it can all be prepared in one skillet, as long as you have some leftover rice in the refrigerator. I love meals that don’t make a big mess, and they’re a real winner when my family […]
Roasted Onion and Mushroom Burgers with Potatoes is a one dish meal that gets a family friendly dinner on the table in no time. It’s simple, delicious, and is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight. I created this meal when my family requested burgers and roasted potatoes, but the burgers were still frozen, and my attention was needed in other places besides the kitchen.
