    add a big spoonful of butter/margarine whichever you prefer
    sprinkle some garlic salt and some pepper and mix together. it's sooo good!
    and it's good warm or cold.
    My mom used to make this when we were growing up. She always threw in a few large diced onions. We called it "Poor Man's" since she only made it when we were dead broke (which was often).

    Just found this on Betty Crocker's webite

    Southwestern Skillet Bake

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 jar (16 oz) thick and chunky salsa
    1 can (11 oz) whole kernel corn-drained
    1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    1 cup original bisquick mix
    3 eggs

    Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cook beef in 10 inch oven proof skillet over medium heat 5 ot 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Drain. Stir in salsa and corn-heat until hot. Reserve 2 tablespoons of cheese. Stir bisquick mix, eggs, and remmaning cheese in medium bowl until blended. Spoon batter around edge of beef mixture, leaving center uncovered. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. Bake uncovered about 20 minutes or until golden brown and toodpick in topping comes out clean


    I read all the reviews on this and there was not one bad one...it also said that if you don't know if the skillet is oven proof you can wrap the handle with several layers of foil or transfer the beef mixture to a 9 inch square baking dish.

    I am planning on doing this tonight...if anyone else tries it, let me know!

    Microwave 'baked' potatoes topped with leftover chili or spaghetti sauce. Fast and quite filling if you eat a couple of them.

    I usually just take a white fish fillet (scallop is good), drizzle a bit of lemon, olive oil and oregano over it, and grill it for 30 min at 220 C. I boil some broccoli, or just cut a simple tomato salad, and voila! Yummy and easy.

    Chop and fry a few rashers of bacon. Add crushed garlic and sliced capsicum (bell pepper). Cook pasta (any type). Mix with splash of olive oil and grated parmesan. Eat.

    I also vary this by adding hamburger, and adding paprika and a little ketchup for flavor.

    The other night, I made Chicken & Chorizo quesadillas. Super easy. I am not good with measurements, I really eyeball it. I cooked it really fast.

    Diced chicken breast, or canned chicken if in a rush.
    Chorizo
    Shredded cheese
    Tortillas

    Brown the chicken with chorizo in a skillet.
    Remove when done and spoon into half a tortilla.
    Sprinkle with cheese and fold in half.
    Cook each side in a clean skillet sprayed with Pam.
    Done. Cut with a pizza cutter and top with sour cream and salsa, of desired.

    Another thing I make which my boys love are Pepperoni Pizza Burgers

    Package of hamburger buns
    Pepperoni
    Shredded mozarella cheese.

    Lay out the buns on a cook sheet. Top the buns with as much pepperoni as you want. Top with a small handful of cheese. Put in a 350 degree oven for 5 mins, until chesse melts. Serve and dip in pizza sauce, if desired.

    I have a million of 10 minute meals. Rachael Ray has nothing on me!

    Couple of different things.

    The first is always breakfast...scrambled eggs or a quick omelet and toast.

    The second is a really easy pasta dish that you can make with as many or as few ingredients as you have on hand.

    It's basically pasta (works best with a spaghetti, linguine or fettucine noodle) with olive oil and sauteed garlic. Saute several cloves of chopped garlic in good olive oil and serve over pasta with grated parmesan cheese. This takes about 20 minutes. If you have fresh tomatoes and basil, you can add those to the skillet after the garlic for a few minutes and it's even more delish.

    Tuna Casserole - Layered

    One can french green beans, drained
    One can cream of mushroom soup, do not add water
    One 12 oz can solid white albacore tuna in water, drain water
    Crushed potato chips, about 1 1/2 or 2 cups?

    Preheat oven to 375%. Put french style green beans in pyrex dish - I use 9 X 9 size but this is a no-fail recipe and any size will do. Put a little salt on beans. Add cream of mushroom soup, Next add the tuna. Top with crushed potato chips - I use reduced fat ruffles. Bake for about 20 minutes or until bubbly.

    quick,easy,good. serve with green salad.

    PB will laugh! She always has the best fresh fish!

    LOL-I never said I was a good cook! That stuff tastes surprisingly good & I can make it quicker than dialing for pizza! She did say quick and easy! OK-here it the worst: sometimes I make Mr. go by Wendys for the salad! Maybe I should have saved it for quick & lazy!! So come out of hiding, where ever you are!

    spaghetti agli e olio
    if you don't mind garlic breath, this is yummy and simple

    8 garlic cloves
    fresh parsley (optional)
    salt and pepper
    olive oil (quite a lot)

    sauté garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in oil over medium heat.
    When garlic is nice and golden, remove from heat. mix with cooked spaghetti.
    ----------------

    pita bread pizza

    drizzle pita bread with olive oil
    add canned pizza sauce or fresh diced tomatoes (or both)
    shredded mozarella cheese
    top with whatever you have in the fridge: ham, bacon, veggies, sausage, goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, etc, etc...

    bake at 200°C for a few minutes. you can do it in a toaster oven too.

    ---------------

    if you have half an hour:

    marinated tuna steaks (works with a lot of other fish too, red snapper or any white fish)

    in a bowl, mix finely chopped fresh ginger, chopped fresh thyme, finely chopped garlic, salt, pepper, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp lemon juice. marinade fish filets (works best with thick tuna filets) for 30 mins (an hour if you have time)

    turn on your oven's broiler
    put tuna pieces on pan directly under the heat (like right under it, the closest you can put them) and broil for about 1-2 minutes per side. i do about a minute and a half for tuna because it's best when it's nice and pink on the inside and it dries really quickly if you leave it in any longer. serve with white rice and a salad.

    ------------
    niçoise salad:

    lettuce
    tuna
    tomato (cut into 8)
    black olives
    2 hard boiled eggs (cut in quarters)
    1 onion, finely sliced
    finely chopped basil (optional)
    make vinaigrette with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, black or white pepper

    put lettuce, tomatoes, tuna, onion, basil in a bowl and mix. top with hard boiled eggs and olives.
