I wish I could be one of those homeschooling moms who plans her meals out by the month, shops in bulk, saves tons of money, etc... But, I'm not (not right now at least!). I've had all I can do to focus on getting lesson plans done and keeping the house clean! So, sometimes I take shortcuts with cooking, but everyone needs a growth area, right?
Ever have one of those weeks when so much little stuff creeps up that you think you could explode? Well, I'm having one of those weeks. I'm thankful that I planned my menu on the weekend and made sure we have everything we need for the week, because if I hadn't I think the whole family would explode by dinnertime!!
While I was shopping on Sunday the store was offering free samples of their meal deal. I always try them and sometimes I take the recipe and fix it for dinner. The sample was Philly Cheeseteak Bake, and it was GOOD, so I'm going to try it tonight.
While I'd like to claim this recipe as my own, it's not - it belongs to the people at Publix Apron's Meals:
1 32 oz. bag tater tots
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 15 oz. pkg. frozen Steak Eze Angus Beef Steaks
8 oz. pre-sliced fresh baby portabellas
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 8 oz. pkg. American Cheese slices1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice onion. Cut sandwich steaks into thirds.
2. Bake garlic bread and tater tots following the package directions.
3. Coat a 9 inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Layer steaks, mushrooms, then onions, season with salt and pepper. Bake 8 minutes.
4. Stir meat mixture; bake 5-7 more minutes or until no pink remains. Top with cheese; bake 1-2 more minutes or until cheese melts. Stir meat mixture; let stand briefly before serving.
5. Add meat mixture to one half of the garlic bread; top with remaining half. Cut into 4 portions; serve.
