I am all about a fast meal, so I had to share!
The other night, we headed to an event at a local kids museum, and from there we had two hours to eat and get to a hockey game about 45 minutes from home. I needed something I could throw in a crockpot (that could cook in two hours) to be ready when I got home, so we could eat fast, and get on the road. Something that’s already in my fridge and pantry. Oh yeah, also something that my daughter will also eat. Sounds like a tall order? I thought so too.
Until I found this post on Pinterest by RecipiesThatCrock.com. It’s for a low carb Chili Dog Casserole, that can be made in a crockpot. While it’s a great recipe, it was a little more time intensive than I wanted to be, so I made a few changes.
The recipe called for browning ground beef and creating your chili and letting it simmer in a crockpot, but I didn’t have that kind of time, so I grabbed a can of chili from our camp stash.
We also have a metric ton of hot dogs left over from a recent camping event with American Adventurist, so those were easy.
Then a bit of cheese, and let simmer.
I had Cris throw some veggie tots in the toaster as soon as he got home from work, so everything was ready to eat when we walked through the door. Brocolli Cheese Tots are a great way to add veggies to an otherwise unhealthy meal.
It wasn’t as healthy as the RecipiesThatCrock.Com recipe, but it was super easy and fast to throw together, and pretty dang satisfying to boot!
