This entire dish was cooked in the electric skillet.
carton of farfalle pasta
2 packs of ham, I used Smithfield ham steaks
half a large onion or one medium onion
3 cloves of garlic
can of sweet peas
2 large portobello mushrooms
small jar of alfredo sauce
2 tbsp of sliced pepperoncini peppers
Mrs Dash garlic and herbs
cup organic vegetable broth
extra virgin olive oil
First I added the oilive oil to the skillet, chopped up the portobello mushrooms and added them to the skillet. Sprinkled some Mrs Dash over it.
I then chopped up the ham, garlic, pepperoncini peppers and onion and added those as well and let it all cook until the onion started to get soft. Then I added the jar of alfredo sauce, a cup of vegetable broth and a jar and a half of water (used the empty alfredo sauce jar for that) and put the lid on the skillet.
Let it cook for about 15 minutes while stirring every 5 minutes and adding a little bit more water if it gets too dry.
The last minute I added the peas just so they could warm through and that’s it. No water to drain and it’s all cooked in one skillet. Enjoy!
As I mentioned before a few months ago, we have a very small fridge on our truck, smaller than dorm size, so when we shop I plan our meals for 5-6 days and try to come up with meals that use many of the same ingredients yet aren’t 100% the same as no one wants to eat the same on a daily basis.
All these meals above were cooked in an electric skillet; nothing else.
List of ingredients I used:
2 salmon filets
1 pack uncured thick cut bacon (also used one morning with just eggs, not pictured)
2 chicken breast filets
pack of 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs
Produce: (we try to eat low carb as much as possible so I use a lot of produce)
2 red bell peppers
bag organic carrots
bag frozen peas
bag frozen corn
garlic (make sure you buy American; they have the roots still attached on the bottom. The cleaned ones are from China and are bleached you don’t want those).
Miscellaneous: (and NOT low carb!)
pack pancake mix
2 packs of Uncle Ben’s roasted chicken ready rice
I use mostly Mrs Dash garlic and herbs, no added salt for our meals and sometimes add old bay seasoning.
With all these ingredients I made all the above meals incl. a chicken vegetable soup with the leftover carrots and one bell pepper I had and also had vegetable stock and chicken bouillon cube. So it made a total of at least 7 meals, not all pictured.
