I don’t claim to be the world’s greatest cook or even Covington, Kentucky’s greatest cook, but I like to play around with cooking. I figure it’s better than eating frozen dinners which I’m trying to get out of the habit of.
Let me tell you what I do with a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice Mix.
The instructions on the box says to “Lightly brown 1 pound of ground beef” on my stove top and then drain. I don’t do that.
I lightly brown two J.T.M. Beef Hoagie Patties. I think they taste better. I then cut the hoagies up into small pieces.
Keep in mind I never measure anything. I cut up some green pepper, white onion and fresh mushrooms.
Following the instructions on the box, I bring that water to a boil in my saucepan, then I add the dirty rice, chopped up hoagies, green pepper, white onion and fresh mushrooms to it.
I stir it up a little bit, bring it to another boil, then cover the saucepan turning the heat down to low. After 25 minutes, it’s done. I get about two meals out of it.
I want to think I’m eating healthy here. If I’m not, please don’t tell me.
