It's a themed Works For Me Wednesday so here you go! My quick, go-to meal when it's zero hour (that's what we call 5:15 at our house :)) is made-rights and oven fries. We love them so much that we have them even when it's not a last-minute meal. I know Shannon said sandwiches are out but these are not just any sandwich and it's not lunch meat... :) I grew up eating them!
Here are the recipes:
Made-Rights (loose meat sandwich)
1 lb. ground beef
1 med.-lg. onion, diced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Buns, sliced bread, bagels - whatever you have on hand
Brown the ground beef and onion together and add the salt and pepper. (The pepper is the key to this recipe!) Spread the mayo, ketchup, relish, and/or mustard (whatever you like) on the bread and top with the loose meat. Doesn't sound like much but trust me, it's amazingly yummy and filling!
Peel and slice 1 potato per person in strips, lengthwise (I use the fry cutter attachment for my Bosch)
Put the sliced potatoes in a bag with enough olive oil to coat them. Sprinkle with salt and dried dill. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Fruit or applesauce make a great finish to this quick meal. If you don't have time for the fries - chips work, too. :)
And that's what works for me! Check out Rocks In My Dryer for more last-minute meals.
