Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Crock Pot Freezer Meal

Happy Monday! Time for another crock pot freezer meal

32 oz frozen tater tots
3 oz bacon bits
1 lb chicken, cubed
8 oz cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

If freezing, combine everything in a freezer bag with the cheese on the bottom so when you dump it into the crock pot the cheese will be on the top (mine was on the bottom of the crock pot and it was burnt).  

To cook, dump in crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Chicken Fingers

It's no surprise that I like chicken.  If we go out for dinner and I can't ever decide what to get, I resort to chicken fingers. You usually can't mess those up.  This recipe for homemade chicken tenders caught my eye on pinterest so I made them asap.

3/4 cup Bisquick mix
1 teaspoon paprika 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 tsp garlic powder
8 chicken breast tenders
2 eggs, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 450°F. Cover cookie sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray.  Stir Bisquick mix, paprika and salt in a dish. Dip chicken strips into eggs, then coat with Bisquick mixture. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with other pieces.  Bake 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway through, until no longer pink.

Corn Dog Casserole

I've mentioned my love of hot dogs before and when I saw several friends pin this recipe on pinterest I too pinned it and made it for dinner later that week.  I followed all the directions, but mine got a little burnt on the top.  It was still pretty good though. 

2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup diced onions
1 1/2 pounds hot dogs
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 packages (8-1/2 ounces each) corn bread/muffin mix
 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
celery salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in large pan.  Saute onion in butter until softened.  Mix in chopped hot dogs until lightly browned.   Set 1 cup of hot dogs aside. 

In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and pepper.  Stir in remaining hot dogs, corn bread mix, and 1 1/2 cups cheese.  

Spread mixture into baking dish. Cover with cup of hot dogs and remaining cheese.   Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Pizza Roll Up

I've made something similar to this before here, but I used bread dough. I wanted to try this recipe because it used pizza crust instead. This one was much better and had less prep than the other recipe.

1 can pizza sauce
1 can pizza crust dough

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread out dough and cover with sauce, pepperoni, and cheese. You could add any other toppings you wanted also.  Roll up dough. Tuck in the ends and pinch the seam together. 

Sprinkle some cheese on top.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until dough is golden brown.

Chicken Mac & Cheese Stuffed Shells

Raise your hand if you don't like macaroni and cheese. Nobody?! Okay, good! This recipe tastes just like mac and cheese but is better because it's larger and stuffed with chicken.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded precooked chicken 
1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
3-4 tbsp butter
12 oz evaporated milk
10.5 oz condensed cheddar cheese soup
12 jumbo pasta shells, cooked al dente

Preheat oven to 350 degree.  In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, chicken and 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. Mix well. 

Melt the butter on medium heat over the stove and add the cheese soup. Whisk until soup is less lumpy. Add evaporated milk gradually while whisking until smooth. Add remaining 1 cup of the cheddar cheese gradually and continue to whisk as cheese melts.

Stuff shells with the chicken mixture and place is a baking dish. Continue for all shells and chicken mix.

Pour cheese sauce over top of shells.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Homemade Mac & Cheese

I always have a hard time deciding what to make for lunch on the weekends since everyone is home. I had all these ingredients already in the cabinet so I searched for a recipe on Pinterest. This recipe caught my eye and it turned out pretty good.

1 8oz. pkg of elbow pasta
1 stick of butter
1 (14 oz.) can of evaporated milk
1 lb. block of Velveeta cheese, cut into 1″-2″ cubes

Cook the pasta until al dente.   Drain the water but keep ¼ cup in the bottom of the pot. Add the butter, the can of evaporated milk and the cheese.  Sprinkle some salt and pepper in there. Heat over medium flame until the cheese is completely melted and blended in.  Remove from heat and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. Stir and serve.

Mini Tortilla Pizza

These little pizzas are so cute. They were pretty delicious too.

3-4 tortillas
1 (15 oz) Can pizza sauce
3/4 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese
48 Mini pepperonis

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 12 count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Start by laying each tortilla out individually on a flat surface, and cut 3-4 medium circles out of each. 
Press each tortilla circle into muffin tin.  Drop about 1-2 tbs of sauce in each wrap.

Divide mozzarella cheese evenly over each mini pizza. Place mini pepperoni’s on top of each pizza.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Wait for pizzas to cool, and remove from muffin tin.

DIY Uncrustable Sandwiches

This is an idea I stumbled across on pinterest. I have seen the Wonder Bread Sealer and Decruster before at the store, but never really put two and two together to realize what it did. Now that I know I am in love! Haha! 

Super easy. All you need is the decruster and your choice of sandwich fixins. 

Make your sandwich. Then place the decruster on top. Push down the white part, then remove the crust. Then you'll push down the red part in the center to seal it up. 

I made a whole loaf of these then put them in the freezer. So easy to just pull on out and heat it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
