Dump Dinner

Dump Dinner

Serves 4

 

This is an easy recipe my family enjoyed along with several other families during camping outings. The guys would cook huge batches outside in a couple pots and the kids thought it was fun to eat at the picnic table using newspapers as our plates. It’s very low maintenance and clean up couldn’t be easier! Here’s a single family-sized version that can be done on the stove top.

 

3 oz Old Bay Seasoning
Water
2 tbsp. salt
1 ring Kielbasa or Turkey sausage, cut into 1” pieces
8 ears of corn on the cob, cut in half
4 handfuls of pea pods
2 lbs. unshelled uncooked shrimp

8 small, red potatoes, quartered

Optional side: French bread and butter

 

The amount of items above can easily be modified to your taste.

Cover the table with several layers of newspaper.

In large stock pot, fill it half way with water. Bring to a boil.

Add the old bay seasoning and salt and boil for 5 minutes.

Add kielbasa. Boil for 20 minutes.

Low Carb Buns

Low Carb Buns

Inspired by One Minute Bread, The Next Minute Toast by Ginny

Makes 6 buns.

1/4 cup Butter

6 Large Eggs

1/3 cup Water

3 tbsp Parmesan

1/2 cup Almond Flour

1/3 cup Flax Meal

1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

2 tsp Erythritol

Melt butter in a large bowl. Add all other ingredients and whisk together really well.

Take 6 oven safe bowls, ramekins or tins, basically anything that will give you the shape and size you want. Spray with some cooking spray and line them up on a baking sheet.

Divide batter up evenly among the 6 tins, you’ll end up with approximately 1/3 cup of batter in each tin.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Let them cool for a few minutes, then carefully slice each bun. Toast them to desired crispness and enjoy!

I haven’t tried them not toasted so I have no idea what they taste like that way, but toasted they are great and you can use them for any kind of sandwich or burger.

Makes 6 buns.

{Holiday} Monster Cookie Bars

Ok, so these aren't so much a holiday monster bar as Monster Bar Cookies with holiday-colored candies in them. Since baking is not really my thing, that's good enough for me.

These bars are easy- you only need one large bowl- and some simple ingredients. There is definitely sugar in these but no flour- gluten free otherwise! I have made them with sugar alternatives (Erythritol and Stevia) but when you're bringing something to share at a party, you don't want to bring something that could potentially cause digestive upset. You gotta know your audience... So, here's the simple, gooey, {holiday} Monster Cookie Bar recipe. 

Ingredients

4 eggs

1 1/2 C Sugar

1 C Brown Sugar

3/4 t Salt
