Quick and Easy Condo Recipes
Cinnamon Sugar French Toast
2/3 cup milk
4 teaspoons TSTE® Cinnamon Sugar
8 slices of bread (slightly stale works best!)
2 tbsp Butter
Beat eggs and milk together. Add 2 teaspoons of TSTE® Cinnamon Sugar. Whisk well until fully blended. Pour into shallow bowl and set aside.
Slice bread into thirds (long thin slices) or leave whole. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing the bread to soak up some of the liquid.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add slices and fry until golden-brown on both sides, turning when necessary. Remove using tongs and place on serving plate. Sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons of TSTE® Cinnamon Sugar.
4 English muffins, split
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (1/2 cup per muffin)
16 slices pepperoni sausage
TSTE® Pizza Seasoning Blend
Preheat oven to 375° F. Place English muffin halves, cut side up, onto a baking sheet. Spoon the pizza sauce over each half. Top with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni & TSTE® Pizza Seasoning Blend. Bake for 10 mins., or until the cheese is melted & browned on the edges. Serves 4.
Not Your Mom’s Meatloaf
1 pound ground beef (or turkey, if you prefer)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot, grated
1 teaspoon TSTE® Smoked Sweet Paprika
1 teaspoon TSTE® Tuscany Blend
1/2 cup dry stuffing mix (or crushed croutons)
2 talespoons ketchup
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Place all ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer. (If you don’t have one, mix with your hands.) Using the paddle attachment, mix on low speed until ingredients start to blend, then increase speed to medium-low and mix until well-blended. Once ingredients are mixed, place into an ungreased loaf pan, flattening out with hands. If you prefer, top with a bit of tomato sauce or the condiment of your choice. (or leave it naked–it doesn’t need a topping) Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked-through. Enjoy with your favorite potatoes and veggies.
Bloody Mary Drinks
1tsp TSTE® Bloody Mary Mix per glass
Vodka, to taste
Tomato Juice, to taste
Ice Cubes, if needed
Pour 1 shot of Vodka (more or less to taste), ice cubes, and tomato juice into a tall glass. Stir and add 1 tsp TSTE® Bloody Mary Mix. No need for celery, worcestershire sauce or hot sauce! It’s pre-mixed. All you need to add is the liquid. Happy Mixing!
The Perfect Popcorn
Add flavor to any popcorn with the TSTE® Popcorn Seasoning. With ingredients like salt, cheddar cheese powder, paprika, garlic, vinegar powder and more, it can get addicting! Add it to popcorn with or without butter. [Mixture contains milk]
