Blog maintence

Over the next few days I'll be working hard on fixing all the broken links for the photos with the recipes. Hopefully, I'll get the majority of it done on Tuesday and can start posting more recipes. Thanks for all the comments here recently. 

Have a blessed day

Easy Freezer Meatloaf

This is your basic no frills meatloaf. Don't be discouraged from making it though. It has a good flavor and cooks up nicely to make meatloaf sandwiches with the left overs. I was very surprised myself. Thankfully, I made two for the freezer. 

1 - 1/2 lbs ground beef  
1 cup milk
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp rubbed sage, or fresh chopped sage
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs or stuffing mix
1 small onion, diced

Combine all ingredients. Shape into a large loaf and place in an ungreased 9x5in baking pan. Wrap with saran wrap, then foil, date and store in freezer for up to 6 months.

Thaw over night in fridge. When you are ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Let cool to room temp and serve.

** Note: I use glass ware to prepare my meatloaves in. If you do the same be sure to let the pan sit out on the counter for one hour to become room temp or they will shatter in the oven. Pin It

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes And Sausage

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes and Sausage

Cheesy scalloped potatoes and sausage is hearty one pot meal that is man pleasing. Perfect for lunchbox meals for the working man. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for several days.

1 pound package of smoked sausage, sliced in rounds (I used applewood chicken by hillshire)
8 to 10 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 green pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 (8 oz.) package colby jack cheese, cubed
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons paprika
fresh parsley, for garnish

In a large mixing bowl slice up the sausage, peel and slice potatoes, chopped green pepper and chopped onions. Toss to mix. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and pour in the potato sausage mixture. Sprinkle cubed cheese on top. 

In a saucepan combine milk, sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder, flour and paprika. Over low heat melt the ingredients while stirring with a wire whisk until mixture thickens and is smooth. Do not boil. Remove from stove and pour over potatoes and sausage. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over top.

Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender when stuck with a fork. Remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes until cheese starts to brown on top. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh parsley.

Makes 8 to 10 servings
