Ham & Cheese Hasbrown Casserole 

 

YUM! This is not the first time we’ve made this, but I forgot to blog it last time. We had leftover ham from Easter and I wanted to make this dish again because it was so good the first time. The first time we had it, my son actually made the dinner. YAY for kids making dinner! Obviously, if my son was able to make this meal, it is pretty easy to pull off!

Not only is it easy, it is really tasty. Like it is hard to stop yourself from eating it and exploding. YUM! I used a mixture of cheeses this time and it was sooo good! Cheese just makes the world so much better! I’ll probably be making this dish anytime we have leftover ham…

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (32 oz) frozen hash browns
  • 1lb cubed ham
  • 2 cans condensed soup (cream of chicken or cheddar, or potato)
  • 1 16 oz container sour cream
  • 2 cups cheese – I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar
  • Parmesan Cheese

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 375 and grease 9×13 pan

Mix together the hash browns, ham, condensed cream of whatever you chose soup, and cheese. Pour into pan. Top with Parmesan Cheese and more cheese if you want. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until bubbly and light brown.

Brownie “Cake” with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filling & Dulce de Leche Topping

I asked my husband for a brownie cake with chocolate chip cookie dough filling from my birthday. Then I thought, let’s top it with Dulce de Leche. Then this delicious monstrosity was born.

It was SO FREAKING GOOD!

Nevermind the calories. It was worth every calorie it contained. It was my birthday, so time to splurge! YUM! So good. This may be my dessert every year for my birthday! Mmmmm….

To make this, he made my Favorite Homemade Brownie recipe. He baked them in round baking pans instead of the traditional 13×9

Then we made my Chocolate chip cookie dough recipe – only since we weren’t baking it, we simply removed the eggs and mixed in milk until the consistency was right. You can also leave out the baking soda/powder, since you don’t need it to rise! Tasted sooo good! We used mini chocolate chips too.

Then made a batch of my slow cooker Dulce de Leche

Then simply layer the “cake”

Soooo good! You’re welcome. If you’re really going ALL out, add some vanilla bean ice cream. Oh.my. Die from a diabetic coma, but sooo worth it!

French Onion Chicken

I think I have mentioned how much I LOVE caramelized onions. I haven’t made them in awhile, because they take so long/need to be babysat, but I was needing some again! Plus my baby is old enough to not be held constantly, so I can make recipes that are a little more complicated.

Now, it’s not complicated to make caramelized onions, it just takes time. I tried one of the shortcuts on Pinterest, and it failed spectacularly.  So now I just know if I want my delicious caramelized onions, I have to take the time to make them. They are totally worth it, when I have the time to make them.

This was soooo yummy! Chicken, Caramelized Onions, cheese – YUM! I served it with/over a loaf of french bread. So good! This will be made anytime I have the time to make some caramelized onion or when sweet onions are on sale. Mmmmm…

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2lbs cubed chicken breast
  • salt/pepper or Montreal steak seasoning
  • 2 cups beef broth or 1 can
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup shredded swiss or 1/2 lb sliced swiss cheese
  • french bread – if desired

 

Directions:

Caramelize your onions in a large skillet. To do this, cook the sliced onions in the skillet for about 20 minutes, Stirring occasionally to prevent burning. As the liquid leaves the onions and the onions condense, you will need to stir more often to prevent burning. This is the point that the onion starts to caramelize. Once they start to turn golden brown, you’re set. Stir in the balsamic vinegar. Take the onions our of the pan and set aside for a few minutes.

Place the cubed chicken in the skillet and cook the chicken with the salt/pepper or Montreal steak seasoning. Use a bit of olive oil, if needed. Once the chicken is browned and cooked through, remove from pan and set aside.

Heat oven to 350. Melt the butter in the skillet and deglaze the skillet. Whisk in the flour, creating a roux. Slowly whisk in the beef broth, incorporating the broth thoroughly before adding more. Cook until it starts to thicken. Then add the chicken and onions back into the skillet. Stir until combined. Sprinkle with the swiss cheese (or layer like I did, since I had slices) and place in oven for about 10 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. (see pictures)

Serve over slices of french bread. YUM!!!
