So, it’s Spring Break and that means the kids are home (if they ever went back to school) and jonesing for food. Do kids ever stop eating?
We’re back with another version of #notafoodblogger recipes to help you get through this Spring Break and well, any time. We asked our contributors for their best and easiest go-to meals for their families.
Disclaimer: we call this series “#notafoodblogger” because 1. we are definitely not and 2. these are super easy meals for those nights when you just need to feed the kids, but you’ve maxed the takeout budget for the week or just can’t bring yourself to go through another drive thru. We get it.
1. Crack Chicken (Submitted by Ashley Lessard)
-2-3 Chicken breasts
-Ranch seasoning packet
-1 cup cheddar cheese
-16 ounces cream cheese
-Bacon (1 pound, less if you don’t love bacon)
Put chicken, ranch and cheese in the slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. When ready, cook bacon in the oven. Stir crockpot and sprinkle bacon crumbles on top.
You can serve on buns, tortillas, or eat as dip with crackers! We usually get some fresh bakery buns, toast it and add a slice of cheese! We use the leftovers as dip with crackers!
2. Sweet Potato Pork Loin (Submitted by Megan Lankford)
-1 Pork loin (size dependent on how many servings you need)
-2-3 Sweet potatoes, cubed
-1 Jar of salsa verde
Put all ingredients in the slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4. If you’re going to be longer than 8 hours, we suggest not putting the potatoes in until maybe 2 hours before serving.
Serve with a salad or it’s great with bread, too!
3. 20 Minute Skillet Lasagna (Submitted by Kayla Lindholm)
4. Breakfast Tacos (Submitted by Kira Henning)
-Bacon or sausage, crumbled
-Greek Yogurt (as topping)
Put everything out on the counter and let the kids assemble themselves. Serve with fruit!
Pro-tip: all of these taste better on paper plates.
