Sandwiches and Snacks
When you are studying late at night or on a Saturday afternoon, hunger pains are sure to happen and an attack of the munchies is sure to follow. Instead of reaching for the chocolate chip cookies, try one of the recipes below.
For dessert, snacks, or hiking and camping food. Mix all ingredients in proportion of your choice. Some suggested ingredients:
For breakfast, lunch or dinner, cheese toast is something that can always fill the "void". Slice cheese and arrange on bread. Broil for about 4 min. - check it often because it's easy to burn. Sprinkle on Parmesan cheese for an extra touch.
As an hor dourve, main course or snack, macho nachos are always great. Brown ground beef and drain off fat. Spread tortilla chips over tin foil. Spread cooked meat over chips, then add other ingredients. Add cheese to the top. Bake in oven at 350 for about 10 min. When cheese melts, nachos are ready to eat. Use hot sauce, sour cream or guacamole or dipping.
The all-time favorite snack. If you have a popcorn popper, then why are you reading this recipe. For those of us who don't have the luxury of such a device, making popcorn can be a supernatural, almost religious experience. Everyone has his own way of making popcorn - here's the easiest: coat bottom of pot with oil (corn or peanut oil work best). Don't add too much. Add corn to oil - again, don't add too much - you can cover the bottom of the pot if you want. Heat over medium heat. When you hear the corn starting to pop, shake the pot to get all the kernels popped. Continue cooking until the popping stops (be careful not to burn the pot). Add melted butter, salt on top if desired.
A good Saturday afternoon special. Slice enough tomato and lettuce for the number of sandwiches. Fry bacon in pan (about 4 slices/sandwich). Toast bread. Place B,L and T between bread and there you have it. Add extras.
No, you don't have to go outside and find any of the little critters. Instead, substitute raisins. Ants-on-a-log is really a good appetizer that can be made quickly. Wash and cut celery sticks into 2 or 3 inch pieces. Spread on either cream cheese OR peanut butter on each stick. Dot on some ants (raisins) and there you go.
A gift from the orient which has become a staple in a good number of American households. When you buy the ramen noodles, they come with a flavor pack inside. Unless you like lots of salt, never use the whole package. Cook the noodles in boiling water for about 3-5 minutes adding as much of the flavor pack you want. At this time, if you want, add vegetables and/or some cooked meat and heat a minute or two more. A few cubes or slices of cheese on top of the finished product is also nice.
Either as a side dish or a main course (with hot dogs), baked beans can be spiced up for a change with cinnamon and cloves. Heat the baked beans (with or without cut up hot dogs) over a medium heat in a pot. Add a dash of cinnamon and cloves to the mixture. When it's hot, it's ready.
