White Castle Sliders

I found this recipe here.

1 1/2 pounds hamburger (I used ground turkey)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 package Lipton onion soup mix
1 tablespoon peanut butter (I used soy butter)
1/2 cup milk
About 15 Soft small-sized dinner rolls from the bakery, sliced in half
Cheese slices (you can use Kraft Singles or sliced Velveeta cheese.. we used Velveeta)

In a large bowl mix (with your hands or a spoon) the hamburger, Lipton onion soup mix, peanut butter, and milk. Spread the meat mixture on a cookie sheet with a lip. Use a cup or rolling pin to roll over the meat to smooth it out.

Put it in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. The meat will shrink. Take it out of the oven and put the diced onions all around the edges to flavor the meat. Place back in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Take it out of the oven. If you want onions on your sliders then spoon them onto the meat from the sides. Add your cheese slices. Put it back in the oven for 7-10 minutes (until cheese is melted). Then add the tops of your rolls (the bottom part of the rolls will just sit on the counter) and place back in the oven for about 5 more minutes.

Take it out of the oven. Slice the meat with a pizza cutter and pick up the slider/top bun with a spatula and set it on the bottom bun.

French Onion Chicken Pot Pie

1/4 cup butter
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 large onions, halved, then thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 packages (8 oz each) sliced fresh mushrooms (6 cups) (I used 3 small cans)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used wheat flour)
4 1/4 cups water
1 box (2 oz) onion soup mix (2 envelopes)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 can refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)
6 oz mozzarella cheese (shredded)

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9X13 with cooking spray. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from skillet; discard chicken juices.
  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet. Add onions and mushrooms; cook and stir about 8 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle flour over vegetables. Cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in water and soup mix; heat to boiling. Boil about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
  • Spoon chicken into 9X13. Spoon onion mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with pepper. Separate dough into 8 biscuits and place over onion mixture.
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden. Carefully remove from oven. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons cheese over each biscuit. Bake 4 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
This was so good. I found the recipe here.

These are a few hair bows I made today using scraps in my stash. I think they turned out pretty cute. I saw the tutorial here.

Shredded Beef Taquitos

These were a hit at my house. I found the recipe here.

1-2 Lbs. lean roast beef
1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 c. water
a few shakes of hot sauce (Tabasco etc..)
Shredded cheddar cheese

Add roast beef to crock-pot with onion soup mix, water, and hot sauce. Heat on low for 8-10 hours. Remove beef from crock-pot and shred. Add a little cheese and beef to each tortilla and roll up (remember to add cheese first, THEN beef.. that way the cheese won't melt out). Place taquitos seam-side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 400-degrees for 6-8 minutes. Turn taquitos once and bake for another 5-6 minutes or until taquitos are nice, golden brown, and slightly crispy (you could also deep fry them if you'd rather). Serve with sour cream, salsa and/or guacamole.

Winter Footprint Art

My Darlings and I made these little footprint Snowmen and Penguins today. We had fun. Made a mess, but had fun.
