$0.50/1 French’s fried onions (it should come right up for you but if not, use zip 77457).
We came across this recipe for chicken breasts using the fried onions – doesn’t this look yummy?
It is so easy too!
2 cups (4 oz.) FRENCH’S® Original or Cheddar French Fried Onions
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
4 (5 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
Place French Fried Onions and flour into plastic bag. Lightly crush with hands or with rolling pin. Transfer to pie plate or waxed paper.
Dip chicken into egg; then coat with onion crumbs, pressing firmly to adhere. Place chicken on baking sheet.
Bake at 400°F for 20 min. or until no longer pink in center.

We hosted a party last weekend and served, among other things, sloppy joes. We way over estimated the amount of buns we needed and were left with 2 whole packs of quality sandwich buns that we were not going to use.
You may be thinking that we could have froze them, but honestly we never like the taste of buns that have been frozen and then defrosted. We have tried it, and it just isn’t for us.
I did not not want them to go to waste and after a few meals of hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches we were still left with 1 whole pack left. I made my own bread crumbs!
Heat your oven to 200 degrees and lay the bread (or buns) on a cookie sheet. Bake for 1 hour at 200.
Let the bread cool and then break it into pieces and place them in a blender (or food processor if you have one).
Cover and use a medium setting to turn the chunks into crumbs. It only takes a little bit to accomplish this task. I put in 3 or 4 halves per blending.
When you are done you will have nice even bread crumbs that you can use when you make meat loaf, fry chicken or pork, etc.
If you keep them in the fridge they will last about a month; you can also freeze them in recipe size bags and they will last much longer.
Are you a busy person and often find yourself without a lot of time to put together a home cooked dinner? We know that you want to save money by not eating out all the time, but it can be hard to whip up an easy dinner! That is why we wanted to share this free ebook with you from Mr. Food.
During the week I made meat loaf, which turned out really good. It’s one of those kind of meals that make me think back to being a kid for some reason. I guess that is why they call it “comfort food”.
Anyway, we had quite a bit left over and after having it for dinner and lunch the next day I wanted to do something different with it to use up the rest of it.
Since we seem to have an over abundance of Pillsbury crescent rolls (thanks to printable coupons), I decided to use those to make a pastry pocket.
They turned out really good and were really easy! You could get creative with the general idea but I kept it simple (that is my favorite type of cooking)!
Using Pillsbury crescent rolls (or any tube style crescent roll), separate the dough. Using your fingers flatten out the dough and form a square shape (I just cut the triangle dough and rearranged it to form a square).
Place a small amount of your meatloaf in the square and add 1/2 slice of cheese (we used Provolone). Using your fingers seal up the dough and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 14 minutes (keep an eye on them so they don’t get overbaked).
Remove from the oven and enjoy!
We used ketchup for dipping.

We have been making these quick and easy tuna patties for quite some time, and they are yummy. They use common ingredients that you probably have on hand too, which is always nice.
You will need:
1 box stuffing mix (like Stove Top; any flavor will work)
2 cans tuna, drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons of relish
1/3 cup Miracle Whip
3/4 cup water
Mix all the ingredients into a bowl; cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Remove from the fridge and form patties with your hands, working the mixture together. Place them into a heated pan that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook for about 3 minutes per side, until browned.
We like to mix a sauce of milk, relish and Miracle Whip up to serve as a sauce on these patties.
