Double Whammy – a recipe AND a craft.

This is an oldie but a goody…I made this a few years ago for a recipe swap that I participated in. So, lucky for you — you get an idea (to start a swap, to participate in a swap, to make a recipe book…) AND you get a great recipe! This is a simple design, but since I was giving a recipe for a cheese “ball”, I thought circles were the way to go. I love the textured paper in the back and I just cut different size circles to make this look:

If you are interested in swaps, check out http://www.fiskateers.com or http://www.papercraftsmag.com. It’s a great way to be able to “craft” with others without having to leave your home! You sign up, then send in the correct number of whatever you’re making (which may include everything from recipe cards, to greeting cards, to scrapbook pages) and, in return, you get the same number from other swappers. Very cool!

Cheeseburger Salad — a new summertime dinner staple!

I just had this at my sister’s house this past weekend — it is going to become a staple in my house! SO DELICIOUS. She served it on a platter do that every portion had a little bit of everything, but if you were using a deeper bowl, I think I would just do layers of the ingredients. I cut and paste this from Pampered Chef (where she got the recipe — she is a consultant), but you can use whatever pans, etc. you’d like/have. Enjoy!

The Pampered Chef ® Deluxe Cheeseburger Salad Recipe

4 sesame seed hamburger bun tops
1 small red onion, divided
2 plum tomatoes
3/4 lb 95% lean ground beef
1/2 cup finely diced dill pickles
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tbsp yellow mustard
8 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425°F. Slice bun tops into 1/4-in. strips (if bun tops are very thick, slice bottoms off horizontally before slicing into strips). Arrange in a single layer on Large Bar Pan; bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely.

Slice half of the onion crosswise into thin rings using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with thin slicing blade. Remove and discard stems from tomatoes; cut tomatoes into quarters lengthwise and slice crosswise using Utility Knife. Set onion and tomatoes aside.

Cook ground beef in (8-in.) Sauté Pan over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking beef into crumbles using Slotted Turner. Chop remaining onion half using Food Chopper. Finely dice pickles using Utility Knife. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine chopped onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard. Add cooked ground beef; mix well using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.

To serve, arrange lettuce on large serving platter. Spoon beef mixture over lettuce. Top with cheese, tomatoes and sliced onion. Arrange hamburger bun croutons around edge of platter. Serve immediately.
