It’s back to school for our family which also means making super quick recipes with as few ingredients as possible. If you’re like me it’s about keeping a few base ingredients in your fridge and then coming up with filling dinner ideas that I can pull off fast. Last week I did a video on Facebook Live all about ‘make-ahead meals’ that are fast, but also packed with flavor. We made pesto, turkey pesto meatballs and crispy chicken nuggets from the Weelicious cookbook. By making these 3 recipes and cooking up quinoa, rice or pasta I have dinner for 3 nights plus some which I was able to freeze. When it comes to dinner I feel like it’s all about strategy! Keep a few foods in your fridge that you know everyone will eat and then intertwining them together to make fun recipes.
I’ve had Halloween on my brain the past week and was thinking about Freaky Franks and Mummy Dogs (both made with hot dogs). If your family likes pizza and hot dogs (duh, who doesn’t?!) then you need to make these Cheesy Pizza Hot Dogs STAT! They’re made with pizza dough that turns out crusty and golden on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. The best part, though, is the surprise you get when you bite inside. Not only do you find a beefy hot dog, but also gooey cheese in every single bite. You can make them with vegetarian, turkey or beef dogs, so you can please everyone.
Watch the Cheesy Pizza Hot Dogs video for all of my little tips and tricks as there are plenty in this one! If you make them I would love to see! Just share it on Instagram and tag @Weelicious so I can see how you made them your own!
