If you are looking for a quick sandwich type dinner, this is it! These are perfect baked in the oven and even better cooked on the grill or right on the side of a bonfire. These are a must for our camping trips and as a dinner when we are cooking on the bonfire.
They are like a melted ham and cheese with a buttery rich mustard flavor.
I don’t really measure anything but it’s simple ingredients:
Sliced deli ham (use a good one)
Mustard (any kind you like)
Sandwich or Hamburger rolls
Mix mustard, softened butter, and onion in a bowl
Place 2 slices of ham and a slice and 1/2 of swiss cheese on the roll
Place a tablespoon of the mustard mixture on the inside of the roll
Close the roll and spread a little extra mustard mixture on top and sprinkle with poppy seeds
Wrap loosely in tent style in aluminum foil
If baking bake at 350 for 10 minutes to let the cheese melt and the roll get crusty.
If cooking in the fire set on hot coals for about 8 minutes
The roll gets crusty, the cheese and buttery mixture melt into the roll and you have a delicious quick lunch or dinner!
With Valentines day coming our way, these are a perfect treat for anyone! Who doesn’t like to receive any simple homemade gift?
These have been around for a few years and we really enjoy sharing them. You can see step by step how to make them on my Facebook page here: Hot Chocolate Cones
I recently posted two tips I use to keep our busy lives rolling. The first tip was to let family members (children/husband) choose a meal for the week. This is a HUGE load off my plate every week in our house with each child picking a meal and the man choosing one as well. We usually order out or go out to eat once a week so I am left with only planning 3 dinners a week. That’s awesome in my world as I have enough to plan daily.
The second was to try and think ahead and make “multi-meal” plans. You can see how I do it on my Facebook page here: Kitchen Tips
I shared the method to make hard boiled eggs that are always easy to peel along with our family recipe for Deviled Eggs on my Facebook page today. You will never have to worry about destroying your eggs when peeling again! The link is below:
Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
Planning ahead is a time saver and leads to eating healthier. Double win!!
I shared one of the things I do with just a little planning ahead which saved time and made 3 healthy meals on my Facebook page here: Kitchen Tip
FRUGAL KITCHEN TIP: Store bought pancakes are expensive and take the time to read the ingredients on the box. What is half of that stuff???
Pancakes are a favorite of the kids. One likes Chocolate Chip and the other likes Sprinkle Pancakes (using the rainbow jimmies).
When I make them I always make a few extra to keep in the freezer so they can pull them out on school mornings and microwave them for a quick breakfast.
Today we made 4 packages of both kinds for the freezer as well as a few for breakfast this morning.
You can find our basic pancake recipe on my blog here:
This is a great recipe you can add berries, wheat germ, flax seed, chocolate, butterscotch, or white chips, pecans etc. to as it works with anything!
I am asked quite often if it’s true putting a scallion in a bit of water that it will regrow. I always do this during the winter as it’s an inexpensive way to have scallion greens throughout the winter when your garden is not producing.
Place the white ends in a cup of fresh water and change it every couple of days. Chop what you need and in a few days it will sprout again and grow.
These 2 scallions were first used in mid December. I have since been using just these two when I need scallion greens.
You can see where I have chopped them and the new growth. This was 4 days after I used them.
This picture is 11 days later. They are almost full grown. The one laying down I was using tonight and started to chop it but decided to put it back in for the picture.
Give it a try for fresh scallions all winter 🙂
These sandwich wraps are a great investment and a great way to get rid of all those pesky sandwich bags!! I have used the first set I purchased for 2 years. My son recently “lost” his, as in probably threw it in the garbage at school in a rush to get outside to play after lunch, so I had to purchase a new set.
I have seen these all over in supermarkets and department stores. However, I believe these are the best around. They are a little pricier from here but when you factor in my first set is over 2 years old, these are a worthwhile purchase.
I bought them from: One Step Ahead.
When they get dirty they can easily be wiped off and once a week I soak them in hot soapy water and scrub the outside with a sponge as needed. When done, I hang them to dry.
I have used them for sandwiches, buttered bread, and rolls and never had a problem with them drying out. The food is always fresh!!
