Ski Weekend Recipes

I just wanted to share a few recipes from our ski weekend. Hope you enjoy!

Muddy Buddies (I ruined the first batch. How is that even possible?)

9 cups corn chex (buy the name brand---they are the best)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Melt chocolate, butter, and peanut butter together. Stir. Add vanilla and stir. Pour this mixture over chex until they are all coated. I find using a ziploc bags works best. Then add the powdered sugar to coat the chex. (I added the sugar when I added the chocolate---this is INCORRECT!!! It will not work!)

Breakfast Casserole
1 package frozen hashbrowns, cooked according to directions
1 lb sausage, browned and drained (I like to use the Italian seasoned sausage)
6 large eggs
2 cups milk
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 small can pieces and stems mushrooms
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 white onion, chopped

Mix hashbrowns, sausage, cheese, and veggies together in a 13x9 pyrex dish. Mix milk and eggs together and then pour into the pyrex dish. Bake at 350 for at least 30 min and it is bubbly in the center. (You can mix everything together at night and then in the morning pour in the eggs and milk to speed up the process)

Amy's Roast
I LOVE roast in the crock pot! My friend Amy shared this recipe on her blog and I was anxious to make it while we were in North Carolina. (I did modify it a little.) I must say it was a huge hit!!

1 roast
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1 package McCormick Au Jus gravy mix
1 jar pepperocini peppers (who knew these came in a jar? Gadsden does not sell them fresh)
1/2 onion, sliced
1 bag baby carrots
4-6 potatoes, cut into chunks
garlic powder
1 cup water

Put roast in crock pot (don't forget your slow cooker liner!). Pour dressing mix and gravy mix on top of roast. Then pour in the jar of peppers, liquid and all (this gives it a great kick). Add in veggies and generously sprinkle them with garlic powder. Pour in 1 cup water. Cook on high for 8 hours and enjoy!!

  1. My mom used to always make muddy buddies when I was a kid! And using hidden valley ranch dressing mix in your crockpot roast is a genius idea! What a great way to ensure loads of flavor! xx


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them and they always make me smile!
