I sometimes like to “stir things up” a bit! Come up with something different at meal time! These recipes are great for surprising your family at the table. All I can say about the Chocolate Cheese Cake is, “Yummie.” Give them a try for some, “Wow!” remarks from your family and friends.

Egg Roll in a Bowl

1 t. olive oil
¾ lb. bulk, pork sausage
1 medium sweet onion, cut in half and slice in half moons
2 large carrots cut into thin match sticks
1 T. fresh ginger
¼ t. garlic powder
1/8-1/4 t. Chinese five spice
1 medium head cabbage, finely shredded

Brown sausage in oil over medium heat. Add all other ingredients and spices the last two minutes of cooking. You can add 1 t. oil if needed. Then, add cabbage and cook until it starts to wilt.

Ramen Vegetable Beef Skillet

1 lb. ground beef
1 ½ c. sliced carrots
¼ c. diced onions
2 c. shredded cabbage
1 c. water
3 T. soy sauce
3 oz. beef Ramen noodles

Combine the beef, carrots, and onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until done and tender. Drain if needed. Add water, cabbage, soy sauce and half the package of seasoning. Break noodles into pieces and add to the pan. Cover and cook until liquid is cooked-out. Add more seasoning if needed.

Dill Bread

8 slices French bread
¼ c. melted butter
½ t. prepared mustard
¼ t. dried dill weed

Preheat broiler. Combine above ingredients and spread on one side of bread slices. Place buttered side down on baking sheet. Broil until golden brown 1-2 minutes. Turn and broil 2 minutes longer.

Chocolate Cheese Cake

6 T. melted butter
12 oz. chocolate chips
3 – 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 c. sugar
1 T. brandy (optional)
3 eggs
8 oz. sour cream.

Crush wafers and mix with melted butter. Pat into a 9x13 inch spring-form pan, leaving 1-inch space at top. Melt chocolate chips in double broiler. Beat cream cheese, sugar and brandy until smooth. Add melted chocolate chips and eggs one at a time. Add sour cream. Mix until smooth. Pour into pan and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Cook on rack.
