Meal Plan Monday

Posted on August 27th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

Ever so often we end up with a lot of different meat in our freezer. I would guess because we buy it when it’s on sale whether we need it immediately or not. So the challenge this week is to cook from what we have to save money. If you have the same issue, I highly encourage you to cook with what you have. It frees up space in your freezer and encourages you to try different things.

Shrimp Casserole
8oz cream cheese
1 stick of butter
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 pound peeled shrimp
1 can cream of mushroom
1/2 tsp hot sauce
1 sleeve of ritz crackers plus 1/4 quarter cup of butter
Saute onions and bell pepper in butter. Then add everything but ritz crackers and spoon into 9×13 pan and top with cracker with butter. Cook at 350 for 40 minutes or until crackers are golden.

Amazing Chicken (that’s what we call it)

4 Chicken Breasts
1/2 c parmesan cheese
1 c mayo
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Spread mix over chicken breasts, bake at 375 for 45 mins

Crockpot Bacon and Cheese Casserole
This will seriously blow your mind. I think I’ve posted it before and if you haven’t tried it please do!

Steaks with baked potatoes and green beans. This was the husband’s request and since we have steak in the freezer it fits our plan this week.

Swedish Meat Balls
1 pound of ground beef
1/2 c crushed cracker
1 egg
2/3 c milk
2 T grated onion
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 t nutmeg

Mix well, make balls.
Bake 500 degrees for 15 minutes, turn balls over, add 1/4 c water, leave in for another 20 minutes.

The sauce
1 can mushroom soup
1/2 c milk
1/2 c sour cream
Pour over balls
Cover, bake at 350 for one hour or in your crock pot for 4-6 hours.
