Homemade Sliders

My oh my, what do we have here?  Connie over at www.smokityfrocks.com post this recipe about  month ago.  We tried it twice since then.    All you need is 2 pounds of ground beef,  about 1/2 cup of dried minced onion,  a few shakes of season salt, 6 slices of cheese, dinner rolls ( or you could do what I did.  I toasted bread & cut in fourths.)


First thing ya do is sprinkle the minced onion on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Then you spread the 2 pounds of ground beef.  It will shrink down so spread it all over evenly.  After you have done that, sprinkle some season salt over the top of the meat.  Add it to a pre-heated 400 degree oven & cook for 20-25min.


It will shrink in size, as you see here.  Drain the grease is your next step.


Lay 6 slices of cheese on top and let melt a bit.


You can now cut them into "slider" shapes.  Simple, each slice of cheese gets cut into fourths.


So, now you take each slider and place on your cut dinner roll or toast.  Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!  One pickle slice is yummy!
Hope you get  a chance to make these & enjoy them!


A Yummy Lunch...

As most Mom's do, I enjoy finding & creating new meals for my family.  Since we home school, I make a homemade lunch for my 6 children each day.  We are not a "organic or Health food" type family.  If it tastes good & my crumbs eat it, then it is food for us!

Here is a simple example of something simple, that all but 1 ate.  You may have served this to your family before, but we just did for the first time not to long ago.


Peanut Butter & Jelly Quesadillas Surprise


What you need are flour or wheat tortillas, peanut or another nut butter, jelly, and a surprise ( I used mini M & M's).


Spread peanut butter on one side of a tortillas & spread jelly on one side of another.  Sprinkle on the surprise and lay the jelly side on the peanut butter side.

                
                                            Here is Abigail, waiting patiently for her yummy lunch.


Cook them as you would quesadillas.  Use a pan on the stove top or an electric griddle.  ( I love our so much, it was the best find and deal)


They were approved by my 8 yr. old.  If you make these I hope your children enjoy them as we did!
