Monday Menu pulls together tried and true recipes to create 2 family meals, a breakfast, snack and dessert for the week, along with kitchen and cooking tips to make meal prep and grocery shopping easy!
This week’s menu shows a little taste of all those yummy fall flavors we’ve been waiting for! From Fried Apples for dessert to a southern Queso Dip to BBQ Stuffed Sweet Potatoes and a green salad loaded with pears, figs and drizzled with an easy molasses vinaigrette, this week’s meal ideas are 100% fall ready!
This Menu’s Secret
Bacon and figs pull double duty this week as main ingredients in both the Autumn Salad and Bacon & Fig Pizza. That means an easier trip to the grocery story, more efficient use of ingredients and easier meal prep. Plus, the BBQ Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins use pulled pork you buy ready-made from your favorite BBQ joint!
Dessert This Week
Warm, crisp tender and buttery sweet, these easy Fried Cinnamon Apples fill your home with welcoming aromas of baking pie! Fill a bowl and grab a fork for a simple dessert or use these apples as a topping for ice cream.
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
It’s time to liven up that queso dip with a little southern flair! Everyone has their favorite crock pot queso recipe, but there is nothing wrong with taking it up a notch or two every now and then. That’s exactly what this recipe with spicy ground sausage, diced tomatoes and green chiles and tender collard greens does. This cheese dip is perfect for getting together with family and friends, tailgates, game days, movie nights, and just about everything in between!
Making Breakfast Easy
If you love a warm biscuit piled high with sticky sweet figs and topped with bacon, then this, my friends, is absolutely the recipe for you! Tantalizingly sweet & savory, Bacon Fig Pizza is topped with dried (or fresh) figs, fig preserves, chopped bacon, goat cheese and shaved Parmesan. It makes a unique comfort breakfast, is perfect for brunch and can double as a great dinner!
