I thought I would share a few of my favorite penny saver recipes.
Place 3 balls of aluminum foil in bottom of crock pot. This lets the juices drain from the chicken.
Place a whole 3-4lb. chicken on the foil after washing it.
Slice an onion and place on and around the chicken for flavor.
Drop 12 - 15 drops of Texas Pete or hot sauce on the chicken or more for desired taste.
Cook on high 4-6 hrs.
This chicken taste very similar to rotisserie chicken. It is not a bit hot from the hot sauce.
Mix up enough biscuit mix to roll out into a large rectangle.
Brown one pound ground beef (deer), season with salt and pepper. Lay down the middle of the dough lengthwise and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Roll up and bake at 350 until golden brown.
*This can be customized many ways to suit your family's tastes.
Pickled Dilled Eggs
12 hard boiled eggs, shelled
1 medium onion, sliced thin
¾ cup water
1 ¼ cup white vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp dill weed
1 clove garlic, halved
2-3 tbsp sugar – optional
Firmly pack eggs and onions alternately in glass jar(s). Boil remaining ingredients. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5-7 minutes. Pour over eggs and cover completely. Any remaining vinegar mixture may be used to cover cucumbers. Seal jars. Chill 3 days. Keeps 2-3 weeks in refrigerator.
Now I admit, the eggs are for hubby, I can't get the boys to even try them, but Ranger loves hardboiled eggs and can eat 5 or 6 at a time!
