Can't Decide Whats for dinner?
Can't decide whats for dinner? Here are more great dinner ideas! I hope you and your friends and family enjoy them as much as we do!
I made some Panko Crusted Shrimp one night for dinner and had some leftover so I decided to try making some Shrimp Parmesan. I had some spaghetti sauce in the freezer that I didn't put any ground beef in, so I thawed that out to use. If you don't have any homemade sauce, you can use your favorite sauce in a jar. All you have to do is cook some pasta (I used spaghetti) according to the package directions, heat your sauce and mix some in with the sauce, put it in a glass baking dish, arrange your shrimp and sprinkle with some Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses. Since everything is already cooked, all you have to do is pop it in a 350° oven just long enough to melt the cheese. This was wonderful!
Nothing says "Southern Cooking" like Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans and biscuits.
When I can't decide what's for dinner until the last minute, I like to fix some of these crab cakes. They make great appetizers too! I always keep a couple of cans of lump white crab meat in the pantry just in case. These are great served with a loaded baked potato too.
Here's an Easy Chicken and Dumplings that is full of flavor and a complete one pot meal!
For this Grilled Pizza,I tossed some green and red bell peppers, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil and roasted them on a baking sheet at 400° F. for 20 minutes before using them to top the pizza. I also finished it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the top.
Here's a simple summertime recipe that everyone loves. Green Beans and New Potatoes, with sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob and corn bread muffins
Here's an easy and tasty dinner idea. How about ,Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole with some steamed peas and cheesy chive biscuits (check out the bottom of my biscuit recipe for the directions to make these wonderful biscuits)
Soup really is "Good Food" and it doesn't get much better than this Hamburger Vegetable Soup with homemade cornbread muffins!
I found several recipes while looking for a grilled wings recipe that would be something a little different. I couldn't find one that I really liked so I took the best of several recipes that I found and made this Grilled Marinated Chicken Wing Recipe, I served it with some Au Gratin Foil Packet Potatoes and broccoli that I also cooked in a foil packet right on the grill so cleanup was a breeze!
These Chicken Croquettes may take a little time to make but the taste makes them well worth it! They're great served with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.
