A small Betty Crocker book with LOTS of good recipes

Betty Crocker : Quick Fixes

Why you should get it?


In this book lies tons of different recipes for lots of different occasions. It has salad bar recipes, great grains and pasta, easy chicken and meat, from the sea, Mexican night and make it meatless. I think that for recipes books and even for this small of one it has more variety then some. 


Almost every recipe is meant to be simple and quick; hence the title, of course. But all the recipes don't have complicated ingredients or even that many ingredients either. So each recipe is only about 30 bucks to spend if you don't have any of the ingredients to start with. I particularly haven't tried most of the recipes, but they do look delicious. 


My Favorite Recipe

But my absolute favorite recipe of the book is called mini meat loves. Personally I love this recipe is because it only takes about 40 minutes total to be ready to eat you don't need a ton of ingredients and is juicy, tangy and delicious.

1/2 c. ketchup
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 c Original Bisquick mix
1/2 t. pepper
1 small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1 egg

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. In small bowl, stir ketchup and brown sugar until mixed; reserve 1/4 c for topping. In large bowl, stir remaining ingredients and remaining ketchup mixture until well mixed.

2. Spray 13 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray. Place meat in pan; pat into 12 x 4 inch rectangle. Cut lengthwise down the center and then crosswise into sixths to form 12 loaves. Separate loaves, using spatula, so no edges are touching. Brush loaves with reserved 1/4 c ketchup mixture.

3. Bake 18-20 minutes or until loaves are no longer pink in center and meat thermometer inserted in center of loaves reads 160 F.
