Chicken Cottage Pie

I know, I know. Cottage pie is filled with beef and not chicken. But I love to switch it up from time to time. Whatever you’d like to call it, it was stinking amazing! I actually ended up liking it more than the traditional cottage or shepherd’s pie. Filling: 2 large Chicken Breasts; cubed 1Continue reading “Chicken Cottage Pie”

Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

There are few dishes that are as comforting and hearty as chicken pot pie. This is my weeknight version. You can certainly make homemade crust, but store-bought works in a pinch and it’s a major hit with kids and adults alike! 1 Pie Crust 1 medium Egg; whisked 2 large Chicken Breasts; cubed 1 largeContinue reading “Skillet Chicken Pot Pie”

Broccoli Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes

Yes, but have you ever made Scalloped Potatoes with Broccoli Cheddar Soup? SO delicious!! My baby brothers were in town and they eat out…a LOT. So I’m sending them home with something they can pop in the oven for 30 minutes. I saved one for tomorrow’s dinner, so that’ll make my day easier. 4-5 cupsContinue reading “Broccoli Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes”

Curried Goat

This was my first time cooking and eating goat, which is odd because we’ve been raising them for years. I’d always heard that it was really gamey, so I made sure to marinade it a good long while. It was amazing and so tender. I’ll definitely be making it again. The turmeric yellow rice andContinue reading “Curried Goat”

Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

One of my favorite dishes growing up was Kielbasa and Sauerkraut. I add half a teaspoon of honey to cut through some of the bitterness and the caramelized onions help with that too. Fermented food is so good for you and I used turkey kielbasa, which has half the calories of beef or pork. ItContinue reading “Kielbasa and Sauerkraut”

Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie

I had some leftover beef from last night’s BBQ Bacon Sliders, so some Cottage (or Shepherd’s if your American) Pie it is! Good thing too because some of my red potatoes were sprouting. Be sure to drain the beef! It’s a mess if you forget. Beef Filling: 2 lbs Ground Beef 1 cup Onion; dicedContinue reading “Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie”

Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Day 36 of the #PantryChallenge  I had a lot of the Curried Sweet Potato Soup I made last night left over so I repurposed it. Chicken & Vegetable Curry is what’s for dinner! I normally add cauliflower, sugar snap peas and zucchini but didn’t have any on hand.  1 quart Chicken Broth 3 large SweetContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”

Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Day 35 of the #PantryChallenge  Hey look! It’s soup…again. Still can’t really do the whole solid food thing, so immersion blender to the rescue! I love pureed soups and I added a bit more peppers to try and help clear out my sinuses.  It could have done with a splash of heavy cream, but IContinue reading “Curried Sweet Potato Soup”

Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup

Day 26 of my Pantry Challenge. ❤️  I told myself to only make 4 servings. But if I taste something and it needs another flavor I toss it in. Next thing I know, the soup’s doubled. Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup anyone?! I didn’t have any beef broth, so I used the stock from theContinue reading “Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge I had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. YAY!!! (sarcasm heavily implied) Sooo, I quickly thawed some chicken sausages and snagged a box of dehydrated Cheesy Hash Browns from my pantry, both of which I gotContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole”
