Quick Yeast Rolls

Quick Yeast Rolls have a husband approved stamp in the recipe folder.  It does not happen often, but when he likes a recipe he will mark a rating on it with a date.  This one carries large letters that read VERY GOOD!  This particular one is from quite a few years ago.  Since then I have seen it pop up on Pinterest and several other recipe sites.

Since I am kind of lax at following rules and dislike kneading yeast dough, I usually turn to my quick rustic bread recipe or use the bread machine.  Using the bread machine requires me to disassemble the bowl to clean before and after use.  More kitchen cleanup is not on my list of favorite things.

But quick yeast rolls require no hand kneading, no bread machine, and does not require a whole lot of pre-thought.  Another one of my many faults, failure to plan early enough in a day to do things.  These can be on the table in less than an hour.  Perfect for me today, since I got preoccupied getting my chicken into a pot for chicken and dumplings.

Egg Bagel Sandwich

Egg Bagels with Canadian bacon and cheese makes frequent appearances for dinner on the nights we need something quick.

I started making these because before McDonalds started serving breakfast all day, you could only get a breakfast sandwich before 10:30 am.  Sometimes I want breakfast food for supper.  Pancakes, bacon and eggs, omelets, and even waffles sometimes

This really isn’t even a recipe, it’s more like an explanation of how to put simple ingredients together and make a quick meal.  It’s like a sandwich, but makes you feel like you actually cooked.

Egg Bagels are easy enough to make that you can ditch the frozen variety.  If you want a frozen breakfast sandwich, why not just make your own and freeze them.  I would wait to add the cheese until the Canadian bacon and egg were completely cool.  I would also skip the microwave step until the day I was ready to eat it.

Beef and Noodles

Beef and Noodles fit the bill perfectly for those days when all I want to do is eat carbs.  Simple comforting carbs.  Even when I have overcooked, undercooked, or even flat out screwed up this recipe, I eat it for dinner and then microwave leftovers until I have run out of noodles.  Corn, tomatoes, and some buttered white bread is all I need to make this meal complete.

I tend to make this with homemade noodles, but frozen noodles, and even dry noodles when I can find a decent dried kluski noodle somewhere will do.

As the food industry shifts its focus to please more and more “foodies”, basic, easy to make foods that even picky kids will eat, are getting hard to find and edged out of the market.  Like kluski noodles.  Which, by the way, were the only way I used to make beef and noodles until they became scarce.
