Weekend Potluck #163

Welcome back to the Weekend Potluck! First off I owe you an apology if you came to visit last week and noticed we didn't have the link party up. Last week at this time I was lounging on the beach in Maui reading a book and not giving a thought to what was happening in Kansas. By the time I realized that the post hadn't gone live I just figured I'd help myself to another Pina Colada and worry about it later! Seriously I am sorry we weren't here, but I'm sure you were able to find our other terrific co-hostesses. 



If you have a food blog we would love for you to share what you have been cooking. If you don't have a food blog this party is for you as well.

We love to poke around every week and see what everyone brings, and trust us...we are never disappointed! Have a terrific weekend!

Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake


Looking for a breakfast casserole that is a little different? This is especially popular with my kids, who love the canned cinnamon rolls. It takes me back to when I was young and my mom would make them on the weekends. I loved waking up to that smell. As you know we love a breakfast casserole around here. This is a nice change every now and then from a traditional egg casserole. 

Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake

3 tablespoons butter
2  cans cinnamon rolls
5 eggs
1/2  cup whipping cream
2  teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1  cup chopped pecans
1/4  cup pancake syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the butter in a 9 x 13 inch dish and put it in the oven for a few minutes until the butter is melted. Spread the butter around to coat the dish.

Separate the cinnamon rolls and cut each roll into quarters and place in the buttered dish. Set aside the icing to use later.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the whipping cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour evenly over the cinnamon roll pieces. Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle the pancake syrup over the top.

Bake for 25-28 minutes.  Spread the reserved icing over the top and serve.

Enjoy!

Sloppy Joes (Ditch the can!)

I don't know what caused me to crave a Sloppy Joe last week. Maybe I was just nostalgic for my childhood. Who knows, but they just sounded really good and my kids have always liked them. However, when I was a kid I wasn't a big fan of Sloppy Joe sandwiches. My experience with them was limited to the popular sloppy joe in a can or the school cafeteria. If you feel the same as I did about the lowly sloppy joe, this recipe will change your mind. It's a great weeknight meal for those busy evenings. For a variation sometimes I will use half BBQ sauce and half ketchup. 

Sloppy Joes

2  pounds lean ground beef
1  medium onion, diced
1  green pepper, diced
2  cloves (1 teaspoon) garlic
1 1/2  cups ketchup
1/2  cup water
1/4  cup packed brown sugar
2  tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1  heaping tablespoon yellow mustard 
1  teaspoon kosher salt
1/2  teaspoon black pepper
Buns for serving
Pickle slices for serving

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. When the beef is almost done, add the onion, green pepper and garlic. Continue cooking for 5 minutes until the veggies are soft. Add the ketchup, water, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, yellow mustard, kosher salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue simmering for 5-10 more minutes.  Spoon a generous amount on a toasted bun and top with pickle slices if desired.


Enjoy!
