RECONSTRUCTED MEXICAN LASAGNA

A while back I found this recipe for Sour Cream Noodle Bake over at Food Network that I wanted to try and then realized we had a big move coming and that I didn’t have the exact ingredients so  I took quite a few liberties with this recipe and hubby loves it reconstructed!  So, I don’t think we’ll ever get around to trying her original recipe, but you can tell me what you think.

RECONSTRUCTED MEXICAN LASAGNA
1 pound ground chuck or sirloin
8-9 ounces tomato sauce, divided
Fresh ground Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 cups elbows or shells or any combo of
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cup small curd cottage cheese
1 large bunch green onions, sliced thin
1 cup grated medium cheddar cheese
10 ounce can Original Rotel tomatoes, DRAINED WELL
15 ounce can black beans, DRAINED WELL and RINSED
Salsa
Sour Cream

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Spray 11×9 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Spoon 2 spoons of tomato sauce into the bottom of your baking dish
  • Prepare pasta according to package directions to al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • While pasta is boiling, brown ground sirloin and half of the green onions, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste as browning.  Drain fat.
  • While meat is browning and pasta is boiling mix together the sour cream and cottage cheese in a medium bowl, seasoning with fresh ground salt and pepper.
  • Add in pasta and remaining green onions. Set aside.
  • Add remaining tomato sauce, drained Rotel as well as the drained and rinsed black beans to the meat and stir to blend well.
  • Assemble starting with the noodle mixture followed by the meat mixture and half the cheese and repeat.
  • Bake 20-30 minutes until cheese is melted and heated all the way through.
  • Top with a dollop of sour cream and salsa.

NOTE: This recipe also works well with no bake lasagna noodles.  Just omit the pasta from the cheese mixture ad assemble like Italian Lasagna.

BAKED OMELETS aka CRUSTLESS QUICHE & PAPRIKA CHEESE HASH BROWNS

This combination is perfect together. I prepare all the ingredients before I begin. I then assemble the omelet and while it is baking I prepare the hash browns. They are almost always done at the same time which makes it perfect in my book.
I broke down this recipe to a per person portion so you can make as few or as many as you want easily.

BAKED OMELETS aka CRUSTLESS QUICHE BASIC EGG MIXTURE per person

2 eggs
1/8 cup whole milk
1/8 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
Fillings to taste**

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Spray ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Fill bottom with your favorites.
  • Whisk together the eggs, sour cream and milk.
  • Pour over fillings.
  • Bake 30 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Let sit 5 minutes.
  • Invert onto plate and enjoy.

**I usually use bacon, mushrooms, sliced green onions, red onions, cheddar, swiss and tomato.

NOTE: When using meats, make sure they are pre-cooked.

PAPRIKA CHEESE HASH BROWNS

4 cups shredded or finely chopped potatoes, dry well with paper towels
4-6 tablespoons butter
1 small bunch green onions, sliced fine
paprika
celery salt
salt and pepper
1/2 cup finely shredded white cheddar (or cheese of your choice)

  • Melt butter in a large skillet* over medium high heat.
  • Add potatoes, onions and season well with salt, pepper, celery salt and paprika.
  • Brown well.
  • Sprinkle cheese over top and fold in.

NOTE: Use a skillet large enough to have a single layer of potatoes. They will brown better if they are not crowded.

OATNUT SOURDOUGH HERB DRESSING

Thanksgiving after Thanksgiving  I stood in my childhood kitchen watching my dad prepare the stuffing for dinner.  Daddy never stuffed the Turkey, but instead made the “stuffing” like a big casserole.  The stuffing was always my favorite part topped with daddy’s giblet gravy – YUMMY.  I can taste it like it was always those years ago again. Now daddy used Mrs. Cubbinson’s cornbread dressing as a base and doctored it, but several years ago my brother asked me to try and reproduce the recipe and VOILA’ I did it and it’s from scratch!
One of the great things about bread dressing is that the leftovers work for meal after meal and if you’re making gravy, it only enhances the flavor.
OATNUT SOURDOUGH HERB DRESSING
10 slices Oroweat OATNUT bread, cut into bite size chunks
1/2 loaf sourdough French bread, cut into bite size chunks
1 large sweet onion, chopped fine
1 small bunch celery (leaves and all), chopped fine
1/2 bag baby carrots, chopped fine
1 box mushrooms, chopped fine or shredded
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon white pepper
2 sticks unsalted butter
4 cups homemade chicken broth**
2 tablespoons Better than Bouillon Chicken base
2 tablespoons Buttery Herb & Garlic Mix (I believe McCormick makes it)
4-5 cloves garlic, minced

  • Cut bread into bite sized chunks and spread out in a thin layer over cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 200 degrees for 3-4 hours until pieces are actually hard.
  • Chop all the vegetables.
  • In a large cast iron pan melt 1/4 cup of the butter.
  • Add the onions and saute until translucent. The add the celery and carrots and continue sauteing until crisp tender.
  • Add the mushrooms and garlic last as they will burn first.
  • Whisk together the water, better than bouillon chicken base and all of the seasonings.
  • Add the melted butter.
  • In a large pan toss the bread slices together.
  • Add the sauteed vegetables and toss again.
  • Add the liquid mixture and toss again until well absorbed.
  • Fold entire mixture into at least a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered 1 hour.
  • At this point I use a small portion for our dinner that night and freeze the rest.
  • When it’s time to cook it again, I defrost it, put it back in the same baking dish and bake it again, but this time covered with foil until the last 15 minutes so it doesn’t dry out. We like it crisp on top so I remove the foil the last 15 minutes.

NOTE **:  I make my own broth from the carcass of a Rotisserie chicken each week to use in my recipes.  I buy the rotisserie chicken at Costco and use the meat to snack on or to make chicken salad or pastas.

DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS & yet we still had to have dinner ~ CHICKEN & DRESSING with CREAM OF CARROT BISQUE

I worked for quite awhile in the studio today and ran across several unfinished projects that NEED to be finished!  Binding for some reason is my least favorite part of quilting though it should be my most favorite since it is the last step to a completed project.  I’m still trying to figure out where to start!  I’m leaning towards starting with the smaller pieces just because there will be a bigger sense of accomplishment as I whip them out, but am leaning towards the larger ones so I can set them aside into the Christmas pile as completed presents.

I developed this recipe for a request from our youngest and it quickly became a family favorite.

Dessert was a recent inspiration from a new restaurant.  Tony Mandola’s Gulf Coast Kitchen is a fantastic place.  We had the BEST waiter who made our meal so enjoyable while he treated us to dessert and the history of two restaurant families (Carrabas Italian Grill and Ninfas Mexican Cantina) melding together to create this restaurant. I couldn’t find a recipe so I kind of made it up as I went and came VERY close.
