Monday Menu is meal planning made easy with recipes for 2 complete meals, dessert, snack and an easy breakfast idea! This week’s Monday Menu is all about getting classic favorites, like meatloaf and fried chicken, to the table by keeping the meal simple with make-ahead or easy side dishes! It’s an easy approach to making your week delicious!
Keep it simple with make-ahead or easy side dishes! Making a mouthwatering meatloaf smothered in a smoky, tangy glaze takes a little time. So keep it simple by pairing it with a make-ahead hashbrown casserole (instead of mashed potatoes) and quick roasted cabbage steaks.
Homemade fried chicken fingers with Ranch seasoning? Yes, please! While you put your energy into the fried chicken, let your peas cook themselves in the crock pot and an easy, make-ahead broccoli cheese and rice casserole bake away in the oven.
Choosing easy side dishes is a smart way to balance out the time it takes to get great meals on the table any night of the week!
Dessert This Week!
If you like chocolate, I mean really like chocolate, then this Buttermilk Chocolate Sheet Cake is your cake! It is not for the faint-hearted or the casual chocolate consumer. This cake is hide-in-your-closet-and-eat-by-yourself good, and it’s so easy to make!
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
Get ready for your new favorite snack recipe! A little smoky, a little sweet, loads of savory and super easy, these salty Honey Spiced Pecans are completely addictive. Made unbelievably delicious with a simple mixture of honey, garlic, Worcestershire, cayenne & cumin, there’s no way to eat just one!
Making Breakfast Easy
Who can resist spicy sausage, cool cream cheese, all wrapped in a flaky, tender crust? Not me! These cute little Sausage & Cream Cheese Hand Pies are unbelievably easy to make using just 3 ingredients, a pre-made crust and bake up in only 10 minutes. Serve with a spoon of jam for a fun little breakfast everyone will love!
