Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Ups

Standard

A super easy sandwich that kids can help make and love to eat!

Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Ups

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 8 thin slices cooked ham
  • 4 thin slices Cheddar cheese, each cut into 4 strips

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Separate dough into 8 triangles.  Place one slice of ham on each triangle; place 2 strips of cheese down the center of ham.  Roll up each crescent.  ( Typically, you start rolling from the wide end of the triangle but I started from the tip because it was easier to add a little more ham without worrying about making sure it all “fit” as I rolled them.)   Place rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet. (I accidentally greased mine but they turned out fine. 🙂 ) Bake 15 to 19 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.

Sloppy Joes

Standard

DSCN0833I’ve been wanting to make homemade sloppy joes for a while.  Today was the day.  BUT I made the mistake of starting to make them without making sure I had all of the ingredients first.  After I browned the ground beef, I realized we had no barbeque sauce or worcestershire sauce and one or both were required for the recipes I had saved.  We always have these!  I decided to improvise (with frozen pizza in mind in case it didn’t work out).  This is what I came up with instead and Scott said it was great.  So, it’s an accidental keeper!

If I wasn’t making this for the kids, I would probably add diced green peppers and onions but I thought they’d eat them better plain.  It’s hard to say what I’ll do next time though because Scott told me not to change a thing! 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion flakes
  • dash of steak seasoning
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • hamburger buns

Directions

Brown ground beef and drain.  Add remaining ingredients, mix well, simmer on low for about 15 minutes.  Serve on hamburger buns.

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Standard

This was the first recipe that I ever tried for egg salad and Scott loved it. I’d planned to add relish to it because my mom always used it but I didn’t have any. When I told Scott he was happy because he likes it without relish anyway! So, this was a good recipe for him. He’s been asking me to make it again for a while now… I finally got around to it! When I remember, I also add a few sprinkles of Old Bay seasoning in the salad and/or Paprika over the top.

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 8 hard-cooked eggs, diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup dried onion flakes (I use about an 1/8 of a cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 8 slices white bread

Directions

In a bowl, gently mix the eggs, mayonnaise, onion flakes, salt, mustard powder, garlic powder, pepper, and dill. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight. To serve, spread equal amounts on 4 slices bread; top with remaining bread slices to make sandwiches.

Note

If using promptly, begin by placing onion flakes in a small bowl and adding 1/4 cup hot water. Let sit 10 minutes, or until soft. Drain and discard the water, then add the rest of the ingredients to the onion, blending well.
