Oftentimes on Sunday you are tired. By the time Sunday evening rolls around you think to yourself, "where did the weekend go?" If you work the 40-50 hour week like I do, then you cram your laundry, grocery shopping, Target run, what I call my piddlin" run in. A piddlin" run is when I go to TJMaxx, Marshall's or the Painted Tree to just walk around and piddle. Once Sunday rolls around, it is Church, lunch, and whatever else you have to get done.
Greg and I always like to go to a movie sometime on Saturday or to a show at the Rep if there is one in town. We made it to Sunday evening and sometimes I am just beat! This is an easy meal to throw together. It is filling and a little lighter. I call it the "bread-less taco hamburger."
Here's the deal on the taco burger:
You will need:
Hamburger Patties (I used the lean angus beef)
Lowry's Garlic Pepper (a must in my house)
Salsa (I pick it up fresh at The Fresh Market or Walmart deli) I like mild. I can't handle the heat.
Living lettuce (this is the best lettuce there is)
Shredded Cheese --I like this either mild or sharp cheddar. Kraft is always good. Or you can shred your cheese if you like.
Tonight I served these with Alexa Crispy Rosemary Fries ( You can find these at The Fresh Market)
Lowry's Garlic Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil for these as well
For the Taco Burger:
On your grill pan cook burgers until there is no pink in the middle. You can put them on a griddle if you like or whatever stove top you have. Be sure and add Lowry's garlic pepper ( a few shakes) salt & pepper to taste.
After they are brown (with no pink be sure and pat off the grease. I always take and put mine on a paper towel and really pat the grease off.
Top with shredded cheddar cheese (about a palm size)
Top with the living lettuce and then add 1 Tablespoon of the salsa on top.
Guess what? You are done with those burgers. No need for bread. Remember, we are going bottomless for tonight.
Pre-heat oven to 400 Degrees
Spray a large cookie sheet with Pam Spray to coat
Scatter fries flat throughout the sheet
Sprinkle 1-2 Teaspoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top of fries
Sprinkle Lowry's Garlic Pepper on top
Bake at 400 Degrees for approx 20-25 minutes - (don't over bake - these don't need to be too golden)
You have yourself a simple, yet delicious #SundaySupper. You did the cooking, now let your significant other do the cleaning up!
Spaghetti is one of my very favorite meals. I love it cooked on the stove top or baked. It seems for Sunday Supper night, I do prefer it baked. That gives me a chance to do some work or cleaning around the house while it is in the oven. On a cold night, oven casseroles can be the best. Over the summer or hot days I tend to not do the oven as much.
I guess you could call this spaghetti casserole. Who doesn't love a good casserole? #yumilicious This recipe is simple and not expensive to make for a crowd of folks.
Serve this with some of my good 'ole sweet yellow cornbread and you have yourself a great #sundaysupper meal. #sweetyellowcornbread
