Toasty Delicious! Spicy Chicken Sandwich

I've been kind of lazy with my cooking lately, pulling soup out of the freezer and grabbing quick bites. Still, I've been craving some crunch and toasted sandwiches are always satisfying. If you are in a hurry, making a sandwich is a quick go-to that keeps you fueled. This is spicy chicken, but you can put anything between two pieces of toast and it always tastes great. Use whatever you have on hand. I'm thinking my next sandwich creation will be hot steel cut oatmeal with fresh apple slices and cinnamon butter…see what I mean, anything goes.

Pizza Bread Snack or Supper

Don't waste the heel. The end of your bread can be the tastiest part and is great for making a toasty pizza bread. I made this with slices of spicy chicken topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella and some delicious chile flakes for that extra pop of flavor. It's quick, easy and very satisfying. Super simple meal you can make in a toaster oven.

MMMM! delicious. Mini Marinara Meatloaf with Mozzarella.

Switch up your meatloaf with mozzarella & marinara sauce instead of ketchup. Make your meatloaf as usual but mix in some marinara sauce & cheesy goodness—the mozzarella melts deliciously in to your mouth with every bite. Top the mini meatloaf with marinara sauce before cooking. Toward the end of your bake time, add a bit more mozzarella cheese and let it brown and bubble up. Serve with an extra dollop of marinara sauce and top with a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano cheese and some fresh ground pepper.

Tip: This is a moist meatloaf. If you like it more dense and dry, reduce the amount of marinara sauce and milk you add to the mix and use more bread crumbs. Your own special ingredients will make this uniquely yours and it can be made with a number of different sauces and cheese selections. It's sure to be a hit. The single serve ramekin is ideal for people who like small plates. It's perfect by itself or served with other sides. Kids will love it too!
