Top 2 Tuesday

Taylor over at Jimmy Choos & a Baby Too is doing a new link-up called "Top 2 Tuesday"! This weeks theme was recipes: this is two of our easy favorites!

Cheesy Hamburger Loaf:
1 French Loaf

2 lbs hamburger meat
1 small onion
1 small bellpepper (we leave this out!)
1 8oz can of mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 teaspoon worsteshire sauce.(we leave this out, too!!!)
LOTS of shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350.
Brown hamburger meat, onion, mushroom, & bellpepper.
Drain meat.
Mix meat, soups, and worseshire.
Cut the bread..we cut out the center, you could cut in half. (Just do what works best for you)

After we cut out the center, we put cheese on the bottom, add the meat, put more cheese, put the top you cut off back on top, and top with MORE cheese! (We love cheese!)
Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted!

This is a Paula Deen Recipe, but it's great if you like shrimp!

Wild Rice & Shrimp Casserole
1 (10 3/4 oz) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoon butter
1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and divined
1 (8 oz) package wild rice
2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 325F.
Cook the rice according to package directions minus 1/4 cup water. Let cool.
Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 tablespoon salt to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook the shrimp for 1 minute. Drain immediately and set aside.
Heat the butter in saucepan and saute the pepper and onion until soft, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the rice, soup, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, shrimp and vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Spray a 9 inch square aluminum cake pan or an 11 by 7 inch glass casserole dish with vegetable spray. Place the mixture in the pan and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly.

We have a small recipe blog. We are putting together a few recipes to post on there. So, follow that blog for some easy, delicious recipes!
