Kielbasa Rice Bowl / #SundaySupper

It seems like school just ended and summer just started, so I don't know how we can possibly be thinking about "Back to School" lunch ideas, but here I am with a Kielbasa Rice Bowl! My son always loved kielbasa as he was growing up and I love it because it is quick to cook if fried in a pan. Just add a side and you have a meal! Bowl meals are so popular right now, and I hope that continues for a while! They are fun and kid friendly!

Kielbasa Rice Bowl 
(makes 4 bowls)
(printable recipe at end of page)
1 cup uncooked White Rice
1 pound Kielbasa
3 ears Fresh Corn
1/4 of a Red Pepper 
2 stalk Green Onion
8 eggs
sprinkle of  Pepper
sprinkle of Garlic Powder 1-2 tablespoon BBQ Sauce
sprinkle of 4 Cheese


Cook your rice according to package directions. I used Basmati Rice, but whatever is your favorite will work best. Set rice aside.
Slice the Kielbasa rather thin. When I first made this for my son he was pretty young, so I would cut it into slices, and then quarter the slices so there was less chance of him choking. The smaller pieces were easier for him to handle.
Boil the corn in boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool. Chop red pepper and green onion in to small bite sized pieces.
Cut corn in half, and cut off kernels.
Place all eggs in a bowl and beat until whites and yolks are completely mixed. Set aside.
Start cooking the kielbasa, corn, green onions, and red peppers in a large skillet with a pat of butter. Cook on medium and stir often.
Add the rice and pepper and garlic powder. As the mix cooks, you will see bits of the ingredients sticking to the bottom of the pan, unless you are using a non-stick pan. You want those ingredients in your food. So you need to deglaze the pan with the chicken broth. You may not need the entire 1/4 cup. Add a little at a time, then mix, scraping the bottom of the pan, getting all of what is called the "fond" off the bottom and into the mix. This adds a great flavor that you will love. If you are using a non-stick pan, ignore the deglazing, but add 1-2 tablespoons of chicken broth for flavor. Bring the temperature to high and cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes.
 Add BBQ sauce to pan. Mix in thoroughly.
Mix the cooked eggs into the mix. As you mix them in, chop them in to small pieces with the spatula. Remove from heat.
Fill thermos bowl full of all this yummy goodness! Sprinkle with cheese, and enjoy lunch! (or dinner!)

Chipotle Chicken Sandwich / #SundaySupper

Have you ever had a great sandwich when you were dining out, and thought, "I could make this, and make it better"? That is my inspiration for this Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. I recently had a delicious sandwich at a local restaurant, and I loved it. But instead of going back to the restaurant, I decided to make it at home. It is quicker, less expensive, and simple to make! And that's what we are celebrating today for #SundaySupper~Simple Sandwich Recipes!

Chipotle Chicken Sandwich 
(printable recipe at end of post)

Chipotle Sauce
3 1/2 ounces Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
10 ounces Sour Cream
1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic
2 tablespoon Milk
2 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Sandwich
7 ounces raw chicken breast
Dry Chipotle Seasoning
1-2 teaspoon Butter
onion
4 Cheese Mix
red leaf lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise
avocado
Bakery Style Bun

Place all the sauce ingredients in to a food processor or blender. Mix until smooth. Set aside sauce.

Cut chicken breast to the desired weight. It can be smaller or larger than in the ingredient list. It depends on how much you want. I cut this one to 7 ounces because it would fill up the bun and look nice. Butterfly the chicken breast so it looks like the above picture. To butterfly the chicken, lay it flat on a cutting board. Cut away the small filet that is to the side. You can use it later. Use a sharp knife to cut through the middle of the chicken parallel with the cutting board. Don't cut all the way to the end. Stop right before the edge. Fold open the chicken.
Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the southwest seasoning. Melt butter in a medium frying pan on medium heat. Cook the chicken breast on both sides until cooked through to 165℉.
While the chicken is cooking, melt more butter in another pan. Thinly slice a couple onion slices. Separate the onions and saute them in the melted butter. Pull them off the stove when done.
As your chicken is almost done, within a few degrees, sprinkle the cheese all over the top. Cover the pan with an upside down pan, and turn off the heat. The cheese will melt and the chicken will cook to temperature.
Place mayonnaise on both sides of the bun. On the top side place avocado and onion. On the bottom side, place lettuce, chicken, chipotle sauce and tomato.

Enjoy!

Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars / #SundaySupper

Today we are having a picnic, and I brought these Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars! These bars are easy to make. They do take a little bit of time; but they are so worth it! Creamy, tasty, and full of chocolate and cherry flavor. They are a perfect dessert! They fit in at a picnic, a campout, a backyard party or anywhere you want to serve a fun dessert that everyone will love! 
Plan time to make this dessert. It has to be refrigerated for at least 3 hours after making it.  It can be refrigerated for several days if you wish to make it ahead of time!
 

Chocolate Cherry No Bake Bars
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 pound Fresh Cherries
1 cup Fresh Whipping Cream
2-3 tbl Confectioners Sugar
3 Cherry Yogurt Containers (6 oz. each)
Chocolate Graham Crackers
Chocolate Curls

 Wash the cherries, take the stems off, pit the cherries, and cut them in half. Place in refrigerator until needed.
Make whipped cream with the whipping cream, adding sugar as desired. I used fresh whipped cream, but pre made whipped cream will work also. Mix the whipped cream with the containers of cherry yogurt; just mixing with a spoon.
 Fit chocolate graham crackers onto the bottom of the pan, You can use any size pan for this recipe. I used a small one that is 6"x9". If you prefer to use a larger dish, adjust the amount of the ingredients to fit your pan. The graham crackers are easily cut with a serrated knife by "sawing" back and forth.
You will be making 3 layers, so divide your yogurt whipped cream mix accordingly. Place the first layer over the bottom layer of graham crackers.
 Add cherries, again keeping in mind that you will have three layers of cherries.
Add the second layer of graham crackers right on top of the cherries. Then spread a layer of the whipped cream yogurt mix on top. Add more cherries.
Add the final layer of the graham crackers when you are almost to the top of your pan. 
Add another layer of whipped cream and yogurt mix, and top with the cherry halves. Use a vegetable peeler to shave pieces of chocolate from the block of chocolate to the top layer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 3 hours. Check to see if the graham crackers have softened by sticking a toothpick in to several spots. The toothpick should go down through the crackers. Once it does, the bars are ready to be cut and served.
The bars should be kept refrigerated. The longer they are refrigerated, the better they taste and the softer the texture.
Serve right from the fridge!

Grilled Beef Skewers / #SundaySupper

I am so excited about these Grilled Beef Skewers! It's time for #SundaySupper and we are talking beef. But not just any beef.  Certified Angus Beef® is on the menu today and we are cooking up Cowboy Recipes! These Grilled Beef Skewers are made with a Boneless Beef Sirloin Tip Roast, and they taste incredible! I added onion bites for a really tasty flavor combination, and I paired the beef skewers with veggie skewers to add color and great flavor to the plate!

 Grilled Beef Skewers
(printable recipe at end of page)

Certified Angus Beef® Boneless Beef Sirloin Tip Roast
1/2 Vidalia Onion
1 each Red, Yellow, and Orange Peppers
12 Mushrooms
Black Pepper 


Cut down the veins that you see in the roast. They end up into beautiful steaks. Take the piece of steak and make slices down the length of the cut piece, approx. 1/2" wide. Cut those strips in to cubes.
Cut the onion in half and then the half in quarters. Wash and pat dry the mushrooms. Cut and and chop peppers into small squares.
Load the onions and beef on to the skewers. But before you do, wipe the skewers with a paper towel sprayed with cooking spray. Let the beef and onion have just a bit of room so they cook evenly. Sprinkle with pepper.
Cut the peppers and mushrooms to fit onto the skewers. Add more onions too. Sprinkle with pepper. 
Put the beef and veggies on the grill. Use a timer to turn the skewers every 2 minutes. The beef will be medium rare in about 8 minutes. 

Enjoy your Grilled Beef Skewers! I served them with a small pasta salad and a slice of bread~the beef had a great taste and texture. My family loved these! I bet yours will also! These skewers would also make a great meal for a party. You can build the skewers ahead of time and because they cook so fast you can start them as the party guests arrive!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Thanks so much to Cindy from Cindy's Recipes and Writings for hosting today's fun event!
