Recipes, Recipes and More Recipes! - 9/20

I've been a little behind on sharing my menus and recipes, but it's really been pretty slow between the holiday, my MOPS planning retreat, and hubby's screwy schedule again.
But, as always, I'm happy to share!


Steak and cheese wedgies (back East, we call them wedgies, but I guess they could also be called calzones, but they don't have tomato sauce on them.

Recipe for Steak and Cheese Wedgies:

2 containers of pre-made Pilsbury pizza dough
1 box of 16-count Steak-Um's (you could also use a smaller box or leftover steak)
1 bag shredded lettuce
2 sliced tomatoes
2 bags shredded mozzarella (sometimes I'll used sliced mozzarella and sliced provolone)
1/2 onion, sliced
1 bottle Italian dressing

Prepare Steak-Um's as directed on box, set aside
In a cookie sheet (one with sides works well and prevents drippings from splattering your oven) place one pizza dough
Layer Steak-Um's, lettuce, tomato and onion.  Top with mozzarella cheese and Italian dressing.
Put second pizza dough on top.
Brush a little olive oil with garlic salt on top of dough.
Bake in oven as directed on container or until cheese is completely melted.


One-Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Potatoes

Recipe for One-Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Potatoes:

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" wedges
2 boneless chicken breasts cut into 1/2" strips
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil (I substituted olive oil)
1/4 C sliced green onions (scallions)
2 Tablespoons prepared teriyaki sauce

Place potatoes into shallow 1-qt. microwave safe dish.  Cover with plastic wrap, venting one corner.  Microwave on high for 5 minutes until just tender.  (May need to extend time based on your own microwave.)

While potatoes cook, in a medium nonstick skillet over high heat, toss and brown chicken in oil for 5 minutes.  Add potatoes and toss until potatoes are lightly browned. 

Add onions and teriyaki sauce.  Toss again until heated through.  Serve.

Cookout at friend's house


My Marine was flying Tuesday night, so I bought a rotisserie chicken and made a chicken caesar salad for dinner.



Mommy had a break from cooking dinner and went to dinner with a good friend.  Fish and chips -- YUM!!

Sweet potato crisp

3 tbsp. sage

2 cloves garlic, minced
(4) 9 oz. flank steaks

Preheat broiler.  Blend rosemary, sage, olive oil, seasoned salt, garlic pepper, and garlic in small bowl.  Spread mixture evenly on both sides of steaks; press lightly to help mixture adhere to meat.

Place steaks on rack of broiler pan.  Broil 2-3 inches from heat for 6-9 minutes on each side or to desired doneness.

2 lb. sweet potatoes (about 7 medium), peeled, cooked and coarsely mashed

Mix flower and 2 tbsp. brown sugar in large bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in cereal.  Sprinkle over fruit mixture.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until heated through.

Happy Eating!!!

Those all look like great recipes, especially the flank steak! I kind of like when Tim is gone on Tuesday nights playing soccer because it's usually a salad night for us as well!
