Fried rice

Today I am sharing a Fried Rice recipe that I am now making with riced cauliflower instead of traditional rice and a pie recipe that you need to make for Valentine’s Day. I also included an easy casserole recipe.

Fried rice

4 to 6 cups cooked rice

1/2 c. diced onions

1 c. diced green onions

1/2 c. of diced or small whole mushrooms

1/2 c. green peas

1/2 c. cooked meat (your choice)

2 whole eggs

Pinch of salt and black pepper

2 Tbsp soy sauce

3 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Heat large pan with three Tbsp vegetable oil, add eggs and scramble in. Add onions and mushrooms, stir fry one minute. Add rice, stir fry until hot, then add the green peas, cooked meats and half the green onions. Add soy sauce, salt, pepper and half the sesame seeds. Mix thoroughly. Serve on heated platter, garnishing with remaining green onions and sesame seeds. Serves four to six persons.

Notes: Chopped bacon can be cooked and added. If raw meat is used, cook first in and leave in pan after cooking and proceed with rest of the preparation.

Chicken Dorito casserole

2 c. boneless cooked chicken (diced)

1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (do not dilute)

1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (do not dilute)

1 can Rotel Tomatoes (do not drain)

1 (16 oz.) pkg. of shredded cheddar cheese

1 (14 oz.) pkg. nacho cheese flavored tortilla chips (crushed)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a greased or sprayed 9×13-inch casserole dish, layer half of the crushed chips, all of the diced chicken, all of the soups and tomatoes. Cover with the cheese, and the other half of the crushed chips. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Hershey Bar pie

1 prepared graham cracker crust, store-bought or home-made

1/3 c. milk

16 large marshmallows

6 Hershey Milk Chocolate Bars with Almonds

1 c. heavy whipping cream

1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a double boiler or a bowl set over a pot of water, combine the milk and marshmallows. Heat, stirring occasionally to mash marshmallows until they are partially melted. Add Hershey Bars and stir often until everything is melted. Remove from heat and let cool completely (about an hour).

In a bowl, whip the cream until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla. Fold the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture, scoop it put all in the pie shell.

Chill for four hours or even better, overnight. If you are using a smallish store-bought graham cracker crust, it may not all.

Note: Homemade Graham Crust: Mix together 1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs, 3 Tbls. sugar, 6 Tbls. melted butter. Press into a greased 9-inch glass pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for eight minutes.
