Cornbread dressing is a must on our holiday table. This recipe is full of delicious flavors and just the right texture. Do you want to know a little secret? Cornbread is one of the few things I can make better than Arturo…say what! Since I can make the better cornbread the dressing is my one contribution to our family Thanksgiving….
We love us some good egg rolls, so when I saw a recipe for an egg roll in a bowl, we had to try it. The first Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe we tried called for ground turkey. Now, it was good, but since we have a freezer full of ground beef, we thought we would “beef” it up. So we did our version with ground beef and we have not gone back! The ground beef not only adds a layer of flavor, but it also provides a great source of protein and provides 10 essential nutrients, including vitamin B12, zinc, iron and many more. We strive to put balanced meals on our table every night for the boys and this meal fits in that category quite nicely. Plus, it really helps us sneak some veggies in them too. We also love to serve it with rice, preferably brown rice….
These beef empanadas are a knock off of a traditional empanada that Arturo’s mom use to make. They are a little labor intensive but they are totally worth it! The flavors of the beef and cheese are so tasty!
