Well, technically this is the night before last night’s dinner, but it just doesn’t have quite the same ring.
I must dedicate a post to our “it’s a busy night and there’s no time to cook favorite dinner.” Jon and I love this dinner waaay more than I’d like to admit. On the health scale it’s only mediocre, but it’s cheaper and healthier than eating out. These days there are some nights where the stars align (read: the babies both take a good late afternoon nap) and I’m in the mood to cook something fun and fresh. Those nights usually result in crispy blackened tofu, brown rice and veggies or something similar. But on many of those other nights, this is our go to.
I simply cut a potato up, spray it with olive oil spray, sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, pepper and a bit of cayenne. Then I add two Dr. Praegers All American Burgers (the absolute best in veggie burgers) to the cookie sheet. I broil everything for 8 minutes, flip it, then broil for another 8.
Sometimes we’ll have steamed broccoli on the side, but on this particular night I had been craving a cucumber salad I’d seen in a recipe book for days. In the end, I actually used this recipe, but added chopped jalapeno pepper and onion. It was so fresh…simple and delicious. And I ate the entire rest of it the next day for lunch.
The best thing about this meal aside from how tasty it is, is that it gives us more time with these two:)
What is your favorite easy go-to meal? I love getting new ideas!
