Pizza Monkey Bread

Prep Time: 30 min
• Total Time: 1 hr
• Serving Size: Servings

Ingredients
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
• 1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
• 2 cans Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Biscuits
• 2 cups finely chopped pizza toppings (pepperoni, cooked sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions....whatever you'd like!)
• 1 cup marinara sauce
• 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

Directions
1. 1Grease a bundt pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
3. 3In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, garlic salt and Italian seasonings until combined. Set aside.
4. 4Remove biscuits from the cans. Take a raw biscuit, and cut a slit in the side. Use your fingers (or carefully use a knife) to open up the biscuit to form a "pocket" for the toppings.
5. 5Carefully tuck a pinch of cheese into the pocket of the biscuit, then add in a teaspoon or so or marinara sauce, then add in some pinches of your pizza toppings, top with a final pinch of cheese, then use your fingers to pinch together the dough to seal in the pocket. Be sure that it is well-sealed.
6. 6Dunk the pocket in the butter mixture on both sides, then place in the bundt pan with the seam side up.
7. 7Repeat with remaining biscuits until they are all filled and placed in the bundt pan side by side.
8. 8Pour any remaining butter mixture over the top of the biscuits in the bundt pan, then bake for 30 minutes until the dough is cooked and lightly browned. Remove and let sit for 5 minutes.
9. 9Carefully turn the bundt pan on top of a plate and give it a slight jiggle to release the monkey bread. Then remove the pan and serve the monkey bread with a side of extra marinara sauce for dipping.

Fresh Raspberry Breakfast Bread Pudding

5 to 6 cups coarsely crumbled or diced stale French bread, or rich white bread, crusts removed
1/2 pint container fresh raspberries
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups whole milk
1-1/4 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream for serving

Coat the slow cooker with butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray.
Layer half of the crumbled bread in the slow cooker, and sprinkle with half of the berries. Repeat the layers, ending with the berries on top. In a large bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Pour into the cooker over the bread cubes and berries, and gently push down the bread to evenly moisten.
Cover and cook on HIGH until puffed and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 2-1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 190 degrees F. Remove the lid and cook on HIGH for another 15 minutes.
Cover, turn off the cooker, and let the pudding stand to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature, with whipped cream, if desired. Serves 6-8.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 - 10 ounce can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 - 10 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 - 10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, mild or hot
10 flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Boil chicken until cooked through. Drain and cool. When cool enough to handle, tear the chicken apart.

In a large bowl combine the chicken, both soups, and tomatoes. Mix well.

Cut the tortillas into fourths. In a large 9"x13" baking dish layer tortillas, then chicken mixture and cheese. Repeat another layer or two, until chicken mixture and cheese are gone, making sure the top layer is cheese. Bake until it is heated through and the cheese is melted and hot, about 30 minutes.

Great served with sour cream and salsa.

1 can( 6 ounce) tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 pack (8 ounce) no cook lasagna noodles

1/2 pound ground turkey
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 28 oz jar spaghetti sauce (your favorite)
1/3 cup water
8 lasagna noodles
1 4 1/2 oz can mushrooms

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Brown meat and seasoning, drain.

Breakfast Pizza
8 servings Prep: 25 minutes
Bake: 10 minutes



Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1-1/2 cups frozen loose-pack diced hash brown potatoes with peppers and onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 6 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 14-ounce Italian bread shell (Boboli)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
2 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise and sliced
1/4 cup shredded fresh basil

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Add potatoes and garlic. Cook and stir about 4 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

2. In a small bowl, stir together egg, milk, the 1 tablespoon snipped basil, the salt, and pepper. Add oil to skillet; add egg mixture. Cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around the edge. Using a large spatula, lift and fold partially cooked egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and folding until egg mixture is cooked through but is still glossy and moist. Remove from heat.

3. To assemble pizza, place the bread shell on a large baking sheet or a 12-inch pizza pan. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the bread shell. Top with cooked egg mixture, tomatoes, and the remaining cheese.

4. Bake about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the 1/4 cup shredded basil. Cut into wedges to serve.
