Sandwich Recipes for Jane
Here are some sandwich recipes for Jane. The second recipe may not work, as I know many won't eat sauerkraut. The third recipe is from a 2007 newsletter and was shared by Lisa Union Bridge MD
Robbie IN

Lasagna in a Bun

8 small hoagie or submarine buns 8" long
1 pound ground beef
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1slightly beaten egg
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese; shredded, divided

Cut thin slices off tops of buns and reserve tops. Hollow out centers, leaving 1/4" thick shells; discard or save for another use. In a skillet, brown ground beef; drain. Add spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Cook 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Meanwhile, combine egg, ricotta, Parmesan and half of the mozzarella cheese; mix well. Spoon meat sauce into buns; top with cheese mixture and replace tops . Place on a baking sheet. Cover loosely with foil and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is melted.

Place 8 slices of bread on 2 baking sheets that have been covered with aluminum foil. Spread dressing evenly over bread. Divide corned beef evenly over 4 slices of bread. Place sauerkraut evenly on remaining 4 pieces of bread. Place a slice of Swiss cheese over each piece of bread and bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese melts and corned beef is hot.

All American Cheeseburgers Crock Pot

1 lb. VERY LEAN ground beef, browned and drained
3 T. catsup
2 t. mustard
2 c. pasteurized process cheese spread, cubed (Velveeta)
10 hamburger buns, split

Place ground beef in a slow cooker; add catsup and mustard, mixing well. Top with cubed cheese. Cover and cook on low setting for 3 to 4 hours. Stir beef mixture gently; spoon onto buns. I have also done this in the oven. I placed the ingredients in a casserole dish sprayed with non stick spray, covered it with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes until heated through and cheese was melted. Can also add sliced onions and/ or pickles to the top of each sandwich.
Makes 10 sandwiches.

Pot Roast Recipes
This is for Linda, who in the 4/23 newsletter, requested recipes for Golden Corral pot roast. I have not had their pot roast, so cannot guarantee this will taste the same, but thought I would share it. The second recipe has appeared in the newsletter previously and many have commented that it is the best roast that they have ever had. My notes show that Barbara Al first submitted the recipe in 2007, but I apologize if someone else actually first shared it with the readers. Jane may want to consider both recipes for her family, if it is feasible for her to use a slow cooker or crock pot, while she is at work. They would also be options for weekend meals for her.

Golden Corral Pot Roast Clone
Serves 6

2 lbs beef roast
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1-1/2 cups baby carrots
1 large onion, quartered and pulled apart
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 (1-1/2 oz.) envelope dry vegetable soup mix

Place roast into crockpot misted with non stick cooking spray and surround with vegetables. Combine beef broth and vegetable soup mix, then add to crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW 6-8 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.

To Die for Roast

3 pound beef roast (cheapest, chuck works best)
1 pkg Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix
1 pkg gravy mix
1 pkg Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup water

My method:
Place roast in slow cooker. Mix the 3 pkgs of dry seasonings with the water and pour over the roast. (I do not brown the roast first.) Cook on low 7-9 hours, depending on your cooker. Some of the newer ones cook very hot and may not need that long.

Once mine is done, I carefully remove all the meat to another dish. It has usually pretty well fallen apart by that time. It will be VERY greasy because there is a lot of fat on chuck/cheap roasts, but that is what makes them good. I let it cool, then take all the visible fat off and toss it out, leaving just the lean. I cut the lean into slices, or chunks or shreds, depending on how I am going to serve it. Refrigerate. I then put the liquid from the cooker into a large jar and refrigerate it. ALL of the fat in the gravy will rise to the top and you can just lift it out, leaving a delectably, good gravy. Mix the meat and the gravy together and oh, my gosh is it good! You can use the meat with or without the gravy for various ways of serving it.

Two Minute Mug Brownie Recipe

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch salt
2 Tbsp canola or other mild vegetable oil
2 Tbsp milk, coffee or water
2 Tbsp chopped dark chocolate or chopped pecans (optional)

In a heatproof mug or ramekin, stir together the dry ingredients until no lumps remain. Stir in the oil and milk until you have a thick paste. Stir in the chopped chocolate or nuts, if you’re using them.

Microwave on high for a minute, checking it after 30 seconds (microwaves vary) – it will be done when it’s springy on top but still a bit gooey – like the very best brownie. Eat warm.

Raspberry Dark Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe
Yield: 1 loaf
I love raspberries more than any other fruit, so it was time to add them to banana bread!

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated white sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/3 cup plain low fat yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup halved raspberries, tossed in 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

In a separate large bowl, beat the sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Stir in the flour mixture; just until moist. Don't over-mix. Stir in the chocolate chunks and then gently stir in the raspberries. If you want, you can sprinkle a few additional chocolate chunks and raspberries on the top to make it look pretty.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
Since there have been some mixed reviews, we're adding in some tips to help you make this recipe a success (added 9/25/12)

This recipe turns out perfect for us, so here are the details: We bake at sea level in a greased pyrex pan and we bake on the middle rack in a gas oven.

Don't use frozen raspberries or freshly washed raspberries (they will add too much moisture).

If you bake in a dark metal pan or if you are baking at a different altitude or using an electric oven, you may possibly get different results.

Oven temperatures can vary quite a bit, so if you have an oven thermometer that is helpful to see if yours is recording the right temperature.

If the top is browning too quickly, cover the top with foil in the middle of baking to prevent it from browning further.
Hope those are all helpful tips- don't be afraid to try the recipe- it's so yummy!

Smothered Chicken Recipe

For the Cream Spinach:
1 large bag of spinach leaves
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 C shredded parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 T red onion, minced
2 T olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Sautéed Mushrooms:
8 ounce package of mushrooms, sliced
1/2 stick butter
2 T olive oil
1/2 C white wine
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Chicken:
4-5 boneless chicken breasts
8-10 slices Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/8 inch slices
1 T garlic powder
1 T seasoned salt, like Lawry's
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle the garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper on both sides of the chicken. Bake for 16 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the creamed spinach. Over medium-high heat, melt 2 T olive oil in a skillet. Add in the onions and saute 2-3 minutes. Add in the spinach and garlic. It will shrink ridiculously. When it's cooked through, stir in the cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Continue cooking and stirring until the cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

For the mushrooms, melt butter and 2 T olive oil in a skillet. Put the mushrooms in and cook until browned all over. Don't season with salt until they are browned or they will never brown. Deglaze the pan with the wine. Add in the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until most of the wine is cooked out.

Flip the chicken pieces over. Divide the spinach and mushrooms over the top of each breast. Lay two slices of cheese over each piece of chicken. Cook another 12-14 minutes until cheese is brown and chicken is done.
