Black Bean Burgers

These black bean burgers are so flavorful and easy to make. Using 2-14.5 ounce cans of black beans add to a skillet and heat through, mash them well. Add one beaten egg, 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs, dash of chili powder, dash of onion salt, black pepper dash of cumin and mix well.

Form 4 large patties and place on a non stick baking sheet pan, bake 4-5 minutes per side, flip and bake 4-5 minutes longer. Use your favorite rolls/buns and any condiments you love, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion slices, etc.

Enjoy!

Super economical to make!

Baked & Breaded Sausage & Rice Balls with Marinara Dipping Sauce

These gems are so easy and delicious to make. I use 8 ounces lean crumbled pork sausage, 1-1/2 cups cooked brown or white rice, seasoned bread crumbs. After thoroughly cooking/browning sausage crumble, drain excess grease and place into a large mixing bowl, add cooled cooked rice of  your choice, add one teaspoon garlic salt and a few dashes of black pepper, mix well. Using clean hands form balls and roll into breaded seasoned crumbs.

Place onto a rimmed baking sheet pan and put into a hot 400 F oven, bake until golden brown. Warm a side of marinara sauce and serve.

Yum!

Anytime Chicken Salad

Using leftover chicken is a great money saver in this delicious, easy salad for lunch or light supper. I love to add grapes, plenty of greens, and use a combo of light mayo and sour cream with a bit of tarragon and black pepper. I also make it early and chill in the refrigerator before serving.

Give it a try, you too may enjoy it!

Cheese & Red Pepper Quesadillas

win_20170107_19_03_27_pro-2

Makes such a quick delicious lunch or light supper. I like to serve with a mild salsa sauce for dipping. 4 large flour tortillas, butter, 1/2 red bell pepper sliced, 1-1/4 cups your favorite cheese (I use a white sharp cheddar).

Using a grill pan add butter until melted, lay two flour tortillas flat, add cheese and red pepper slices and top with another flour tortilla, grill until golden in color and cheese begins to melt, carefully flip over and brown opposite side. Cut into triangles, plate and serve.

Enjoy, they are a favorite, economical meal.
