Dinner Tonight: Penzeys Strikes Again

As you may already know, we love the Penzeys people – great seasoning mixes, herbs, and spices. They also have fabulous recipes in their catalog each quarter.  Tonight’s dinner is a great vegetarian option from Penzeys, Scott Koser’s Cheesy Tomato Bake. I made some modifications to cut the fat a bit, and the resulting casserole was picture perfect:

I used Bisquick Heart Smart mix with skim milk as a start, as well as cutting down the butter used to sautee the onions. We don’t keep the 4S salt in the house, so I used Old World Seasoning, a low-salt alternative.  I found that my little rolling tool was perfect for getting the dough into the pan, too. If you don’t have Pasta Sprinkle, a basic Italian Seasoning Herb Mix would work just fine.

If you want the recipe, you’ll need to download the Harvest 2009 Catalog from Penzeys. It’s in PDF format and has the added bonus that you can see the other recipes from this issue.  Enjoy!

Breakfast for Dinner

Homemade (turkey) breakfast sausage using Penzey’s Breakfast Sausage seasoning and some extra sage:

And my first attempt at (self-named) Malted Wheatcakes. They were good, but not great. I will continue tweaking because I think, in the end, it will be worth it. They were yummy with tupelo honey.
