Easy Eats: Sweet Mustard Chops

Easy Eats: Sweet Mustard Chops

These Sweet Mustard Chops are INCREDIBLE. Not only are they easy as can be they taste delightful and are a fun way to spin up your grilling night with a bunch of ingredients I’m sure you already have on hand.

Another reason this recipe is wonderful is because the pork chops can simply marinate overnight. That means when it’s dinner time or when your guests arrive you don’t have to be scrambling to finish the marinade. Instead, you can simply grab your spiced pork chops from the fridge, add them to the grill and looking like a professional cook.

No need to head to the grocery store for this recipe, simply make sure you have enough of these staple pantry items and your meal for four is completed. Enjoy Easy Eaters!

Easy Eats: Classic Tuna Melt

Easy Eats: Classic Tuna Melt

There’s nothing quite like a delicious tuna sandwich pressed between your favorite type of whole grain bread for a healthy and hearty lunch! Until recently I wasn’t a big fan of tuna. I think it was because I wasn’t having tuna in the right way.

Basically this recipe is like a tuna salad with some added flavor from onions, a crunch from celery and some cheese to accompany the flavor. To make simply mix together your tuna with mayo, diced onions and minced celery. Add some salt and pepper for extra flavor and then put your sandwich together with cheese and toasted bread. If you’ve never tried it I suggest trying Four Brothers Wholesome Harvest Bread. Not only is it the best bread in the business, but it is extremely healthy and a great companion to your tuna salad! Simply toast your bread by adding a touch of butter to each side, add a little bit of your favorite sandwich veggies such as lettuce or tomatoes and just like that your meal is ready to go!

Add a soup or salad and enjoy this delicious meal Easy Eaters!

Easy Eats: White Chicken Pizza

Everyone knows homemade is better than frozen… And this White Chicken Pizza is no different! Try this week’s Easy Eats Recipe out for yourself and marvel at the deliciousness of it!

We made a few alterations to the original Easy Eats Recipe, so feel free to add a touch of whatever you feel will make your tastebuds smile! Instead of using a boxed mix for the pizza dough, we used a Pillsbury roll-out dough. This simple pizza crust solution saved us time and cooked to perfection after nearly 20 minutes in the oven. Additionally, we loved our sauce and toppings, so we added a full cup of Alfredo Sauce to this pizza as well as two full chicken breasts as toppings so we could get a taste of chicken in each and every bite.

We hope you love the deliciousness of this White Chicken Pizza Easy Eats Recipe and you consider it to make for your next night in!

Easy Eats: Fried Cabbage and Sausage

Happy week of St. Patrick’s! This festive dish is sure to delight all cabbage and sausage lovers out there! If you really want to mix up the flavor, add some sauerkraut on top and the Irish folks will be sure to applaud!

My favorite part about this dish is that once the chopping and other prep work is done, the stove really does all the rest. Be sure you cover your meal once it is ready to cook in the skillet for 20-25 minutes, otherwise it will boil over and is sure to be messy!

Easy Eats: Red Lentil & Vegetable Curry

February 28, 2016

Red Lentil and Vegetable Curry

This low-fat meatless main course is a deliciously healthy way to get your day’s worth of veggies in! We loved this meal with a side of yogurt and chutney, bit it is also wonderful served over a bed of rice or wrapped in a tortilla shell to be eaten burrito-style. Adding chicken or pork could make a heavier meal, which would be great for a fun spin on taco night!

What’s so great about this recipe (besides the fact that it’s easy because it’s cooked in a crockpot!) is that the recipe can be either cut in half or easily doubled. It freezes very well so we suggest making the full recipe and then freezing any leftovers you have for later in the week or for lunches.

Want a new flavor? Simply substitute the water with a chicken broth or add in peppers or cayenne for a spicy addition to this tasty creation.

Hosting or attending a party? Simply serve this dip with pita chips and we guarantee everyone will think this meal is store boughten. The options are endless with this Easy Eats Recipe, so let us know how you decided to perfect it!

Easy Eats: Red Lentil & Vegetable Curry
 
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place lentils, onion, celery, carrots, zucchini, coriander, cumin, garam masala and ginger into crockpot.
  2. Add water and stir well.
  3. Press mixture down so most of it is covered by water.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until lentils are tender.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
  7. Serve with yogurt.
Notes
Grind the whole coriander seed in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, and use in recipes calling for ground coriander. One tsp. coriander seeds equals one teaspoon ground coriander.
Any veggie will do!: Tailor this recipe to any vegetables you like. Try potatoes, yellow squash or green beans, just keep the amount about the same as called for in the recipe.
Don't lift the lid: Lifting the crockpot lid to check on the food breaks the seal and adds about 20 minutes to the cooking time.
Know your lentils: The main differences between red and green or brown lentils are red cook faster and are mushier since their outer shells have been removed.
