Single Crust Turkey Pot Pie

Inspired by a recipe by Sparkuser CAPENKEYS2.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

This recipe came from Leanne Ely, Savingdinner.com. But instead of using crushed cornflakes as the original recipe suggested, I used plain breading and crushed tortilla chips. The finished product was very nice textured and tasted very good!

Pasta Pie

Came up with this to use up leftovers. Measurements are approximate. I used tomatoes and eggplant from my garden that I had frozen. For the vegetarian option, skip the bacon.

Chicken Cacciatore

I combined a couple different recipes into this creation.

Cornbread Crumb Chicken

Use your leftover cornbread for this recipe. You can use other breading as well. But the cornbread gives it a sweetness to the tang of the sour cream.

Sausage and Zucchini Frittata

These measurements can be changed.

Three Generation Baked Beans

This recipe has been passed down from my grandma. My mom made some modern adjustments to the original. I made some of my own as well. The varieties of beans can be eliminated or changed per your tastes and the quantity you want to make. All cans of beans should be drained except the baked beans. Beans can be rinsed as well to reduce sodium.

Bread Machine Egg Bread

For the Wel-bilt bread machine for 1.5 lb loaf. After making this, I've decided to add a bit more salt (perhaps 3/4 tsp) and a bit more sugar (perhaps 1/4 cup).

Hot dog and tomatoes

This is not the healthiest, but I used pork and turkey hot dogs so it made it a little better. Sometimes you still just need some comfort food. This can be served with lentils or brown rice or noodles, etc. That is not reflected in the nutritional info however. All measurements are approximate.

Blueberry sauce

Used this on waffles, but would also be good on pancakes, toast, cake, etc. Measurements are approximate.

Roasted Sweet potatoes (in the microwave)

Very easy. Spices can be changed up.

Tuna and Bean Salad

This is from Good Housekeeping with some changes of my own. Makes a quick supper or lunch. Delicious in hot weather when you don't feel like heating up the kitchen. You can add other ingredients to this as well, such as green beans, cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs, or stuff tomatoes with it. (Not reflected in nutritional info)

Lazy Lasagna with Spaghetti Squash

I was trying to use a leftover half of a spaghetti squash and came up with this idea. You can use a whole spaghetti squash. Just pierce with a fork several times, and microwave for approx. 10 minutes. Cool, then cut in half and seed, and then shred the flesh with a fork. It will look like spaghetti. Additionally, I have acid reflux so I used dried tomatoes for flavor, but you can use canned or chopped tomatoes as well.

Creamy Mashed Cauliflower

This is the ONLY way my husband and I will eat cauliflower! But this way is delicious and creamy. You can add whatever spices you wish in addition to, or instead of.

Eggplant Steaks

This recipe is from www.veggieventure.com. I froze extra, then thawed and broiled with cheese.

Dad's Chili

Mild chili recipe. Can be made in slow cooker or on stovetop.

Main-Rite Sandwiches

This is supposed to taste like the Maid-Rite, loosemeat sandwiches, which I've never had. But I also think this tastes very similar to White Castle hamburgers.
I actually added more worcestershire sauce than the recipe said. Very good.

You can use leaner meat, for less calories and fat.

Easy Baked Chicken

Got this from allrecipes.com, but added a few twists of my own. Measurements are approximate. You could use low-fat french dressing to help with calories and fat, but I only had regular on hand.

Mom's slow-cooker pork chops and sweet potatoes

This recipe is delicious and easy!

Mom W's hot dog casserole

This is not very diet-friendly, but oh so good for an occasional treat! My husband's absolute favorite meal!

Karen's Chicken Bruschetta Casserole

My sister-in-law created this dish. It is sooo good!

Nusskuchen ("Nut cake")

This was introduced to our family by my brother's German class back in high school and has been a family favorite ever since!

Tangy garbanzo beans

I just eyeballed these ingredients and then guessed at amounts on the recipe.

Slow Cooker ham and bean soup

Good for leftover cooked ham

Meatloaf muffins

Don't remember where I found this recipe, but we love it!

Kathleen's tuna salad

Got this from a friend. Never had tuna salad this way, but it's delicious!
