Cold Vegetable Pizza Recipe

Flatten a crescent rolls into a baking sheet. Bake as directed.

Mix 3 oz of cream cheese, 1/3 Cup of mayo, 2/3 Cup of lowfat plain yogurt. Stir in 1 packet of hidden valley ranch dressing.

Mix well. Stirring, spread the mixture over the baked crescent rolls and top with your favorite vegetables. This recipe uses about three cups of fresh chopped vegetables. Tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower and broccoli are favorites. Consider onions, thinly strips of carrots, black olives, cucumbers, sprouts and fresh peas too.

Top your veggie pizza with 1/4 lb. of mozzarella cheese and chill.

Serve cold. Eat & Enjoy!

There are a few ways to make this simple dish. However, this is the version that works best for young children and toddlers. If your crew is older OR just loves flavor packed, consider the option of adding dill to your spread, and even substituting sour cream. *This recipe will also work to bake in mini vegetable pizza. Instead of crescent rolls, simply pat down or flatten the mini “pop biscuits”. Bake as directed. Then proceed with the next steps as directed previously. I love making it this way for students or young children.

Happy Baking!

Sloppy Joe Casserole

Want a dinner that can feed a group of hungry men or kids? Sloppy Joes are a favorite among many kids, and tucking in veggies or a can of veg-all in the sloppy joe mix is one way to get their vegetables in, my preschool kiddos LOVED it, but another filling way to get your vegetables with a favorite (sloppy joes) is in this casserole! Best of all, it is SO SIMPLE!

Fry 1 & 1/2 pounds of burger in your frying pan.

When browned, add your favorite sloppy joe sauce, my kiddos eat anything, but LOVE Manwich BOLD the best!

After warming, place ready “sloppy joes” in a lightly greased 9X13 cake pan, if closer to 2 pounds of burger a lasagna pan (deeper) works as well. Next add 4 cans of green beans. Either kinds works, but french style bakes the best in this casserole. Spread evenly throughout the pan. Set aside.

Mix as indicated on the box of mashed potatoes for 10 servings. (*OR if you have left over mashed potatoes after a dinner, this will work too.) Spread evenly and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. OPTIONAL_ But so delicious! (The last 10 minutes top with shredded cheddar cheese.) Walla! Dinner is served!

Enjoy & Happy Baking!
