Savory Chopped Chicken Sandwich

A few weeks ago I was introduced to a line of spices and mixes called Country Gourmet Home and man are they good!  I used half a package of their Pulled Pork Seasoning and mixed it with 1 1/2 cups of THRIVE freeze dried chicken.  The result was a quick dinner with an incredible flavor.

I warmed up my chicken in a small crock pot for about 45 minutes

Combine all ingredients in a small pot or crock pot and cook on medium low heat for 30-45 minutes.  Drain excess water.  Serve as a toasted sandwich, over rice or just by itself!

Shelf Reliance Cheeseburger Casserole

This casserole has quickly become a standard dinner that I serve on week nights.  It is quick and simple to make and can be made with 100% food storage ingredients.  Sometimes I will bake them in mini single serving dishes.  This makes it easy to have leftover portions ready to pop back in the oven.

THRIVE casserole

1 1/2 Cups THRIVE Potato Chunks
4 Cups Water
1/2 Cup THRIVE Cheese Blend
2 Tbs THRIVE Freeze Dried Onion
1/2 Cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Celery
1/4 Cup THRIVE Sour Cream Powder (mixed with 1/2 cup water)
1 Cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Ground Beef
1 Tbs Italian Seasoning

Preheat oven to 325 and grease an 8" x 4" loaf pan.  Combine first five ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Boil for 15 minutes on medium high heat or until potatoes are tender.  Meanwhile rehydrate ground beef with  Italian seasoning and drain.  Once the potato mixture is done, strain the excess water. In a large mixing bowl combine potatoes, ground beef and sour cream. Top with optional shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Shelf Reliance Potato Cakes

The other night I made some of our Potato Beads for dinner as a side dish.  We had a little bit leftover and decided to try making potato cakes with them.  I almost wish we hadn't made them because they are so delicious but I know they aren't great for my diet!!  Now every time I make potato beads I will probably subconsciously make too much!

Shelf Reliance Potato Cakes

To make these tasty cakes all you have to do is take some reconstituted potato beads and pat them into cakes.  Heat up a little...(or a lot) of butter and fry them in the skillet flipping a few times until they get browned and crispy.
