Pampered Chef: What is your favorite PC recipe for personal use?

  1. Jessamary

    Jessamary Member

    Shows be darned! What do YOU like to make over and over again? What is one or two PC recipes that are constant in your home?

    My husband's (and one of mine) is the Crab Rangoon Dip. I made this for MOPS last week and it was gone in 4 minutes. I even had someone running a finger around the container.

    The Greek Cheese Torta, however, is quickly becoming a family favorite, as is the 30 minute chicken.

    I make the touchdown taco dip and mini ham puffs for a lot of gatherings (I vary the ingredients to mix it up). For dinner I do the 10 minute pork tenderloin, 30 minute chicken, and Mom's apple crisp.

    I'm embarassed to say I make the Jerk Chicken Nachos 2 or more times a week. I am addicted. I have changed it up and used pork instead of chicken, and Southwest Seasoning instead of Jerk, but it's all good! My second favorite is Cheese Crisps...my hubby is a feind for those things!

    Deluxe Cheeseburger Salad was a staple this summer - at least once a week and boy did we save on our gas bill from not needing to use the oven!

    Also we love the Satay Chicken Pasta Salad, 30 Minute Chicken with Smoky BBQ Rub and 10 Minute Pork Tenderloin with SW Rub, Asian Seasoning or Smoky BBQ Rub.

    I personally love the Cherry Cheese Ring... I don't always make it in a ring though, I LOVE to make individual ones, I can have it for Breakfast or dessert.

    And its sort of become a tradition for my family on Christmas morning =)

    Mine are the 30 minute chicken and creamy one pot pasta.....oh, and the warm nutty caramel brownies, but I'm the only one who really eats them, so it's kinda dangerous when I make them!! ;)

    The 30 minute ribs are our new favorite! My sons demand touch down taco dip and pepperoni pizza twist every time they are here. There's more of course but those are the top.

    Becky - what are the pronto pizza patties?
  17. ChefBeckyD

    ChefBeckyD Legend Member Gold Member

    It's a recipe in the It's Good For You cookbook....which is out in my car in my kit right now.

    It's ground turkey, mixed with a little pizza sauce, bell pepper, and onion, and then cooked like hamburgers. Then you put them on slice of Italian Bread (I just use Garlic Bread) Pour a little more pizza sauce over them, and sprinkle with mozz. cheese. Heat through. That's the very basic recipe.

    We love them...and they are quick and easy!

    Cheese Crisps: I found Asiago Crisps in a Season's Best - is this what you mean? What cheese do you use? The recipe says Parm or Romano can be subbed for the Asiago. Do you just snack on them as is - or what do you serve them with?

    DS loves the 3-cheese pizza with pepperoni instead of veggies
    I love the 30-min chicken, esp since I can make soup with the bones

    The Taco dip is my moms favorite too!!!

    I am still a big fan of the BLT Mac N Cheese and every now and then nothing beats the Chicken Fajita Ring! YUM YUM YUM!!!

    We make the taco ring quite frequently. If we have a family thing and I don't bring a trifle I'm usually in trouble!
    We are really starting to get into the 30 min chicken and 10min pork tenderloin too!

    You NEED to get the All The Best Cookbook! Many of the recipes (including the rings) that people are listing here are in that cookbook!

    Um, but I do have that cookbook, and I still don't make rings. We don't care for them.

    Jamaican Pork Tenderloin in All the Best; Brownies in Silicone cupcake pan - add one tsp. of peanut butter chips to top of batter before baking. I just made the third batch
    this week. I took one to Creative Memories workshop today, and DH will take two batches to Men's retreat this weekend. I'll probably make a 4th batch for a Cousins
    luncheon on Monday. The Asian Pork Tenderloin Skillet is so good that my mouth waters
    as I think about it. I make it as often as I can get away with it. It freezes well too!

    30 min chicken, of course, but one that is requested by friends, etc to bring and serve is the brie recipes. The simple ones, the Pepper Pecan, or the Brown sugar dijon one. Everyone LOVES then and they can't believe they only have 3 ingredients,plus brie in them. They all think I am such the amazing chef to come up with some combinations!!!

    I make these all the time. When ever I go to my moms I bring my TPC stuff so I can make them. The first thing she asks me is when are you going to make the cream puffs.

Have something to add?
