Three Meat Frittata – Instant Pot or Stove-Top

Frittatas - this one's great either Instant Pot or on the Stove! Great way to use any leftovers in the fridge!

You know what I like, and I hope you do, too, since I’m posting one? Frittatas. And I like them for so many reasons. They’re delicious and the frugal me loves that frittatas are a great way to use a bit of this and a bit of that. And the healthy me loves that anything can go in a frittata.

Classic Wild Rice Soup in the Instant Pot

This is THE wild rice soup to make - and hey, I'm a Minnesotan!! All the comfort in a fraction of the time! No cream soup in this!

So hey, here I am a Minnesota blogger and I have no Wild Rice Soup on my blog. Uff da. Well I do have a Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey Chowder (amazingly good and healthy!) but it’s just not the same as a Classic Wild Rice Soup, now is it? (As a quick aside, I will be posting recipes that aren’t Instant Pot and aren’t soup, it’s just been a crazy Holiday week, so if you don’t have an “IP” please bear with me!)

Instant Pot Opelousas

Opelousas - a Southern Rice based dish, this one's made from leftover Ham and cooks up beautifully in the Instant Pot!

So you all know (if you follow me – and if you don’t, I’d love it if you would, here with email (on the right) or on facebook or twitter (on the left)) I cooked up a ham for Thanksgiving. And what a ham it was! The stunning and absolutely delish Biltmore House’s Tawny Baked Ham. It was just a half ham, but of course there were leftovers!

Original Cheese Zombie Sandwiches

The Original Cheese Zombies: Baked Cheese Sandwiches full of ooey, gooey deliciousness and an easy home-made dough (use store bought in a pinch) these are fantastic for a crowd and freeze well. The classic is cheese but add what you'd like inside!

It might have been the name that drew me in. The Cheese Zombie. It was the wholehearted endorsement of those who had grown up on Cheese Zombies that hooked me. A Cheese Zombie is a sheet tray of home-made bread layered with an oozy, gooey American cheese and Cheese Zombies are sooo much better than they sound.

Original Cheese Zombies
The last time I made Zombies, I made 1/3 plain cheese, 1/3 with pickled Jalapenos and 1/3 with ham. The possibilities are endless.

Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

Instant Pot + Stovetop instructions for a luscious Risotto made from leftovers. The Instant Pot makes the best no fuss, no stir Risotto in minutes.

I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus!

Classic Ham Salad

I love quaint, old expressions and this year with all the our hot, hot days I kept thinking about “Dog days of summer.” Now, being a dog lover, I always thought that meant the hot August days where it was all a dog could do but find a bit of shade and pant and try to stay cool.
