Knowing exactly what to cook to make amazing meals this week without a lot of research, planning or just making the same old things is gold! Every week, Monday Menu puts together recipes for you so that you can make 2 easy family meals, breakfast, dessert and a snack without any fuss.
This Week’s Secret To Success
This week’s menu has so many possibilities! Full of mix and match recipes, these meal ideas can share side dishes, offer leftovers or even combine to help you host a brunch with friends this weekend!
Start the week with Million Dollar Spaghetti. It’s melty, cheesy center is everything when it comes to a pasta dish your family will crave. Add a super easy, bright Black Eyed Pea Salad, and instead of rolls, serve it up with Asparagus Twists! They are a deliciously sneaky way to add a veggie to a meal.
Follow that meal with a reader favorite- BLT Quiche! Hearty and filling, it is LOADED with smoky bacon just like a good BLT should be. Make the most of cooking up a pan of bacon by adding in a few extra pieces for a classic spinach salad and using the drippings to make Hot Bacon Dressing! Have any leftover Asparagus Twists or Black Eyed Pea Salad? Add them to your quiche meal!
Want to have some friends over this weekend? Make the BLT Quiche, Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing, Blackberry Fruit Pizza, Asparagus Twists and Creole Sausage Balls to create an incredible brunch!
Monday Menu makes it easy for you to have all the ideas! There are so many ways to use this week’s recipes to cook up something wonderful for your family and friends.
Dessert This Week
Mini Cakes are a fun cupcake alternative! Easy to make and and even easier to frost, everyone loves having their own mini dessert. Decorate them fancy with a few fresh flowers for a special occasion or a shower or go simple with a dollop of icing and your favorite cookie or candy.
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
With March Madness in full swing, I’ve got to make sure there are plenty of snacks on hand for basketball watching! This week, I’ll bake up a batch of these Creole Sausage Balls and have them on hand. A perfect snack for my sports fan and also a nice addition to my BLT Quiche meal if I get the notion.
Making Breakfast Easy
This Blackberry Fruit Pizza with subtly sweet Mascarpone cheese (substitute cream cheese or Fontina, if you like), plump blackberries, and blackberry jam is quick, easy and perfect for brunch, coffee or tea time. A gorgeous mix of bread, cheese, fruit, and herbs, this pizza has all the ingredients of a romantic picnic without the picnic basket!
