Cheeseburger Wraps

I like these better than a regular cheeseburger. While I love bread, I am not a fan of burger buns. This is a great alternative!


INGREDIENTS:
1 lb ground beef
1/2 of a small onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons Ketchup
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Pickle Juice
Pepper
Flour Tortillas (we use medium for the kids, large for us)
Cheddar Cheese
Fillings (we use tomatoes, spinach or shredded lettuce, and pickles)

DIRECTIONS:
Brown the beef and onion. Drain fat.
Mix in the ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce, and pickle juice. Add pepper to taste. Cook a few minutes, until heated through.


 Put desired amount of cheese on tortilla, then add burger and whatever other fillings you want. Roll up like a burrito. 


Spray both sides with cooking spray. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Place wrap seam-side down and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

 Enjoy!

Crockpot Tortellini Sausage and Spinach

I feel like I say it often (mostly because I DO say it often!), but this is one of my favorite meals! Easy to make, not many ingredients, and super yummy, even as leftovers. We like it served with garlic bread, so that we can use the bread to mop up the sauce in the bottom of the bowl :)

You can also use refrigerated tortellini if you want, just don't add it in until the last 20 minutes or so, otherwise it will be overcooked.


INGREDIENTS:
1 lb ground sausage
19 oz bag frozen cheese Tortellini
Baby Spinach (I used just over half of a 6 oz bag, but I think it would be good with the whole thing too)
2 14.5oz cans Italian style diced tomatoes (do not drain)
8 oz cream cheese, cut up
3 cups chicken broth
Garlic Powder (I didn't measure, just sprinkled over the top)
Parmesan Cheese for topping (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Brown the sausage, drain the grease.
Put all ingredients in the crockpot.


 Cook on low for about 5 hours, stirring once in the middle so the melted cream cheese blends in.


Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese, if desired, and enjoy!


Parmesan Meatloaf Muffins

One of my favorite meatloaf recipes (ok, ok, only 1 of 2 I eat haha - the other is Taco Meatloaf!).
Italian flavor meatloaf, topped with tomato sauce and cheese. Yum!
This recipe makes 12 regular sized muffins and 12 mini muffins (much easier for the kids), or you could do approximately 16 regular sized.



INGREDIENTS:
1 lb ground turkey
1 lb ground beef
2 eggs
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried parseley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pasta sauce (I usually use tomato sauce with some Italian seasonings mixed in)
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese

DIRECTIONS:
Grease muffin tins with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.


Fill muffin tins almost full of the meat mixture, packing it down.


Spread a spoonful of sauce over the top, followed by the shredded cheese.


Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes, making sure meat is cooked through.


Let stand for 5 minutes and Enjoy!
