I tried this sample at Sam's last weekend and liked it so much I bought the smoked salmon ( it's in the can).

Came home to find no olives so I subbed relish and it's good, but not the same. :-(

I will definetly do it with the olives though. It was very good.

Chili Pork and Green Beans
Pork strips (I get a small pack already sliced at store)
1 can green beans
6-10 cherry tomatoes
Chili powder

Season pork with your favorite seasonings then stir fry pork in non stick skillet sprayed with olive oil cooking spray, until done. Remove from pan. Slice cherry tomatoes in half, add to pan, saute, when they start getting soft, add back pork, sprinkle with chili powder to taste, add green beans and mix all together until heated through. For extra heat, when I'm stir frying the pork I add red chilis too!

You can usually find this by the asian food section at your local grocery store. =)

I made this today - VERY yummy and not dry at all.

4 to 5lb turkey breast (thawed) (I got mine at Sam's in the frozen meat section - over by the frozen burgers and chicken wings)
Two 10.5 ounce cans cream of mushroom soup
Two 6.5 ounce cans of mushrooms (drained)
Spices to taste (I use salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder)

Put the turkey breast in your crockpot skin side up. Season breast. Pour in the mushrooms and mushroom soup (I made sure some soup stayed on the turkey to help flavor it and keep it from drying out). Season soup. Put the lid on and set for 10 hours on low heat.

The mushroom soup turns in to a pretty good gravy, does not need thickening.

This is a great thread!

Here is one that is more than 3 ingredients but is very cheap:

Unwich:
1 package of Carl Buddig Turkey
About 1/2 cup lettuce
About 2 nice thick slices tomato
A thin slice red onion (I like onion)
Mayo and mustard

Dice up the turkey, tomatos and onions, shred the lettuce, top with mayo and mustard, mix it up and enjoy.

This is one of my favorite quick and easy lunches.

Here is another favorite:

Tuna and crackers:
1 can tuna drained
1 diced hb egg
diced red onion
mayo
Linda Sue's cheese crackers

Mix the tuna, onion, egg and mayo to make a tuna salad
Make 2 slices of Linda Sue's cheese crackers with deli deluxe american cheese
Top a cracker with tuna salad and enjoy

Fried Cabbage and Bacon

1 pound bacon diced
1 large head cabbage shredded
½ medium onion diced

Fry bacon until crispy, remove from pan and set aside. Pour off about ½ of the bacon grease or not . Fry onions in remaining grease until translucent. Add cabbage and stir-fry until tender crisp. Stir in reserved bacon. Salt and pepper to taste. This is delicious and freezes very well.

LindaSue - do you remember where you found the chili garlic sauce? I checked Wal Mart and HEB here in Austin with no success. I work at Randalls (I believe it might be Tom Thumb where you are) and will check there tomorrow. Thanks - the picture of this recipe has been occupying my thoughts for 2 days now!

Parmesan Fish

Thin fish filets
Mayonnaise
Grated parmesan Cheese

Place filets in a greased baking dish. Combine equal parts mayo & grated cheese. (You can season this mixture with garlic & herbs). Spread mixture over fish filets. Sprinkle with a litle additional cheese and bake at 400 til fish is done. You can flip on the broiler to get the top crispy & brown

I've made this with just about every type of fish and used both the powdered (green can) parmesan and the finely shredded....it's great any way and FAST!

They have it at Kroger in the Asian food section. I don't recall if Wal-Mart had it or not. You should also be able to find it in an Asian food market. I haven't checked Randalls or HEB because they're not conveniently located for me. You might be able to request that your store get some. The company is Huy Fong Foods and they also make the Sambal Oelek that I use in some of my recipes. Since you're in Austin, you might check Central Market. I bet they'd have it.

Thanks LindaSue - I have to go to Central Market to get Fage yogurt. There is also an abundance of asian food stores here in Austin. Might also try HEB Plus - they seem to carry many more items than my smallish HEB...

OK - here's another favorite:

cottage cheese
diced sugar-free bread&butter pickles
diced raw bell peppers and/or other raw veggies


(the pickles are what really give it flavor, so adjust accordingly)

Linda Sues Sausage Cheese Muffins are a 2 ingredient super quick and inexpensive breakfast. I top them with some sour cream and salsa - this really makes the flavor pop!! I also add herbs and spices to the eggs before beating. I think next time I will try them with diced deli ham instead of the sausage and mozzerella or swiss instead of the cheddar!!


SAUSAGE CHEESE MUFFINS
1 pound pork sausage, browned and drained
12 eggs
8 ounces cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper
Beat eggs and combine with remaining ingredients. Ladle into 18 well-greased muffin cups. Bake at 350º 30 minutes until browned and set. Cool and remove from pan.
Makes 18 muffins

I found chili-garlic sauce today at King Soopers. The brand I bought has 1 carb per serving.

Orange Chicken

4-5 chicken breasts
1 can diet orange soda
1/3 cup soy sauce

Combine chicken, soda and soy in gallon freezer bag. Refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Basted it every now and then while it is cooking. I have also made this in the crock pot it has wonderful flavor.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I made this tonight for dinner with faux fried "rice." It was so quick and easy, not to mention one of my new favorite recipes!! The only tweak I made was I didn't put the chili sauce in the mix because I have two kids that do not like spicy. So, I made my plate and added the sauce then. When I made the kids' plates I added nacho cheese to their broccoli and chicken.

I had a little sweet tooth and this did the trick - fast

2 oz cream cheese
splenda packets (to taste)
1 packet of True Lemon

I did a search on the True Lemon product and most folks seemed not to like it, but for a portable and non perishable lemon substitute I find it nice from time to time.

At our house, the boys call that garlic-chili sauce - the "Rooster." They put it on EVERYTHING - pizza, pork, noodles, basically any food that I make for dinner I get it at Wal-Mart, but our container doesn't look like that. It is in a taller plastic "squirt" bottle - top shelf with the Chinese food.
