Monday Menus- June1

Ok gals.. There are a few followers now- anyone else wanna join me in the Monday Menu idea? I can always use new thoughts on foods to add to my menu! :)

Crockpot Swiss Chicken casserole*

Taco Tuesday ain't called Taco Tuesday for nuthin...
Tacos.. lol (although depending on what time I get back from Drool Prince's dr appt, it could be mexican pizzas instead.. we'll see)

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf**
parsley potatoes

Grill Nite aka whatever meat Daddy Chaos decides to toss on the grill
Pasta Roni side dish

Snack nite-- jumbo pretzels w/ pizza sauce, hot wings, quesadillas & hopefully a good movie!

Fill in Nite- for when whatever's on the menu doesn't sound good...
Biscuits and gravy

*Crockpot Swiss Chicken
4-6 chicken breast
4-6slices swiss cheese (or 8oz pack of shredded mozarella)
1-2cans cream of mushroom soup
1/4-1/2 cup milk
1-2boxes stuffing mix
1/4-1/2cup melted butter
(obviously if you do the smaller of each item it'll make for a smaller family, I do the larger and it works good) Spray your crockpot w/ nostick (I have a large crockpot). Place chicken breasts down- season with a little pepper if you wish. Cover chicken w/ cheese of choice - I prefer mozarella- the kids eat it better than swiss. Mix your soup & milk together and pour/spoon it over the cheese. Toss the stuffing mix on top & drizzle with melted butter. Cook on low 8-10hrs.

**Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf
(note-this is a new recipe given to me & I haven't tried it yet.. I will report back later on how it went over ;)
2 pounds meat
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 (8-ounce) package sharp Cheddar, grated
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Steak seasoning (gives it a bit more burger taste)
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 (3-ounce) can French fried onions

Preheat oven to 350*.In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck and next 8 ingredients, mixing
well.In a small bowl, combine the ketchup and mustard. Stir 1/4 cup ketchup mixture into meat mixture, reserving remaining ketchup mixture. Press meat mixture into a 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan, or shape into a loaf and place on a rack in a broiler pan. Spread remaining ketchup mixture over loaf. Bake 40 minutes. Top with French fried onions; bake another 10 to 15 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.
