The past few years at our home we have been doing Christmas brunch. We found this best so all the kids can come to our house after they have their own Christmas morning with their children. They can then stay at our house or head to the in-laws if they need to for a big Christmas dinner. I am starting to put my menu together, and came across this recipe. I haven’t tried it yet, but will before our gathering. How could you go wrong?!
1 (10.75 oz) can condensed fiesta nacho cheese soup
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk (water or milk will work too)
Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium to med-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and no longer pink. Drain and cool.
Preheat oven to 375. Combine sausage, baking mix, and shredded cheese in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir together the soup and buttermilk; add to sausage mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon until lightly greased mini muffin tins, filling to tops of cups. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.
Weight Watchers has been good to me so far down 11 lbs and learning each and every day to be more disciplined! Plus the Lion King and I have joined one of the nicer gyms in Broken Arrow. Yes, I drag my butt out of bed at 4:30 AM to be there at 5:00 AM, and it’s TUFF, no doubt! But, it gets me going for the day, and my energy level just keeps increasing!
This is one of the recipes they have talked about in WW that is just the bomb! I am making it tomorrow. I did buy the already chopped up cauliflower in the produce section, along with already chopped tomatoes and onions. I feel like I am at a point in my life, if I have to spend a little extra for convenience, that’s exactly what I am going to do. I love tabouli, so I am super excited to see how this turns out! I will post a pic once I get it made and share my thoughts on the taste. I am a huge fan of the cauliflower mashed taters, they have not failed me yet, along with the cauliflower rice. Pretty sure this will be just as good!
Let’s get healthy!!!
Hugs, Love, Peace & Roars,
1/2 large head of cauliflower chopped up into florets (discard the tough core)
3 large bunches finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 cups finely diced tomatoes (about 8 large tomatoes with flesh scooped out)
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped (white and green parts)
1 English cucumber, peeled and finely diced (after seeds scooped out)
I made this tonight and it was awesome! I used turkey smoked sausage and of course the shrimp, then poured it over some cauliflower rice. Plus I used Chef Paul Prudhommes Magic Seasoning Blend vs Old Bay seasoning. It was off the chart good!!
This egg salad combines two of our favorite things: eggs and avocado. In addition to the avocado, we add a little mayonnaise for moisture, celery for crunch, fresh herbs and a small amount of lemon juice to brighten things up.
Heat up an oven-safe skillet and cook the butter on medium heat until it starts to form and turn into golden brown. Add the garlic and quickly saute before adding the carrots. Stir a few times, then add the salt, black pepper, honey and thyme or parsley.
Transfer the skillet and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the carrots become tender. Serve immediately.
Ok, remember that Kahlua Cheese Cake recipe I was going to make over the weekend to enjoy with the White Russians? Well I couldn’t find the bottom to my spring foam pan, so I made this to replace it. (Seriously, how does one only have half a pan? Oh it’s me, so of course! )anyway…OMG!! It was the bomb! Yes, I will be making this again. Everyone loved it! I had enough to take to work, and it was a smash there too! It’s a must try! I did use the “new” cake recipe vs the “original” recipe, and I did a semi sweet chocolate, and white chocolate ganache.
It’s a must try, and well worth the time! Yum, yum, yummy!! Enjoy! It’s delish!!
Hugs, Love, Peace & Roars,
