#1—Pizza Twists

This recipe is from Pillsbury and uses Pillsbury canned bread sticks.

I saw this recipe in a magazine when my children were young. We have made it ever since. It doesn’t have very many ingredients and doesn’t take long to make. I usually double the recipe.

I couldn’t find the recipe on Pillsbury’s website, so I’m going to list it here:

• 11 oz. can Pillsbury Soft Breadsticks
• 24 thin pepperoni slices (1 ½” diameter)
• 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
• ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
• ½ cup pizza sauce, heated
• Separate and unroll breadsticks. Place 3 pepperoni slices in single layer over one half of each breadstick.
• Fold remaining half of breadstick over top; seal end and twist. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
• Combine cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Sprinkle evenly over each breadstick.
• Bake in preheated 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
• Serve with pizza sauce. Makes 8 pizza sticks.


Besides doubling the recipe, we also like to make two different sizes of pizza twists. Although just pepperoni is good, we sometimes add canned mushrooms and bacon to them. Besides pizza sauce, ranch is another good dipping sauce.


#2—Country Style Pot Roast

This recipe is from Lipton and uses Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix.

This is an easy way to make a pot roast. I usually cook mine in a crock pot instead of on the stove. The soup mix gives it a nice flavor.

Lipton’s website doesn’t currently have this recipe available, so I am including it below:

• 3 to 3 ½ pound boneless beef pot roast (rump, chuck, or round)
• 1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Beefy Onion Soup Mix
• 2 ½ cups water
• 4 potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
• 4 carrots, thinly sliced
• 2 to 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• In Dutch oven or 6-quart saucepot, brown roast over medium-high heat.
• Add beefy onion soup mix blended with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat.
• Reduce heat to low and simmer covered, turning roast occasionally, 2 hours.
• Add vegetables and cook an additional 30 minutes or until vegetables and roast are tender; remove roast and vegetables.
• Blend remaining ½ cup water with flour; stir into Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat.
• Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes.
• Makes about 8 servings.


When I make this in my crock pot, I typically use baby carrots instead of slicing up carrots. Also, I just put all the ingredients into my slow cooker and cook it on high for about 5 hours.


#3—Souperior Meatloaf


This recipe is from Lipton and uses Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix.

This meatloaf recipe has been on the back of the beefy onion soup mix box for many years. It is really moist, and I like the flavor.

Currently, this recipe can be found on the back of the box for beefy onion soup mix, but we will also include the recipe here:

• 1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Beefy Onion Soup Mix
• 2 lbs. ground beef
• ¾ cup plain bread crumbs
• 2 eggs
• ¾ cup water
• 1/3 cup ketchup
• Preheat oven to 350F.
• Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Shape into loaf in 13 x 9-inch baking or roasting pan. Bake uncovered until done, about 1 hour. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


#4—Turkey Pot Pie Casserole

This recipe is from Kraft and uses Stove Top Turkey Stuffing Mix.

I discovered this recipe a couple of years ago at Thanksgiving. It is on the back of the turkey stuffing mix. It is a great way to use left-over turkey and easy to make.

Although you can still find it on the back of the Stove Top Turkey Stuffing Mix, we have included the recipe here as well for your convenience:

• 1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Turkey
• 3 cups chopped cooked turkey
• 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrot blend, thawed
• 1 jar (12 oz.) turkey gravy
• Heat oven to 375F.
• Prepare stuffing as directed on package.
• Combine remaining ingredients in 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; cover with stuffing.
• Bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
• Makes 6 servings 1 1/3 cups each


#5—Easy White Chicken Chili

This recipe is easy to follow and quick to make. It is usually on the back of the label of Bush’s White Chili Beans.

You can find the recipe on Bush’s website.
