Lightened Up Pimento Cheese

Happy Fourth of July!!!! What is everyone up to today?! Today, I want to share a super simple, but super delicious recipe. This recipe is for anyone who needs a last minute dish for tonight. In fact it is so simple, I made it twice in one weekend!  Pimento Cheese is seriously addictive, which is why I wanted to make a lighter version of this typically mayo and cream cheese laden dip. Here’s how I accomplished that goal!

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Sometimes I make Chris eat meatless meals, and he will usually do so without too many complaints. Last week after he ate tofu with a smile (recipe coming soon!), I decided to make something I knew he would really enjoy. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce was my ingredient of choice, because he puts it on everything. Seriously, its like the commercial, he puts that “ish” on everything! I decided to take my favorite buffalo chicken dip, and turn it into a pizza!  This pizza was not only super delicious, but really filling!! Definitely a keeper that will be made over and over again!

I could eat this on its own as a meal, but I served it with quick and easy Grilled Lemon Chicken Breasts, to keep the male contributor to this blog happy.

Sausage Balls

The second appetizer Chris and I had during the Mad Men premiere were my mother’s sausage balls. These require minimal ingredients and are easy to make as long as you don’t mind getting your hands dirty!

Reuben Sandwiches

I made Reuben sandwiches with the leftovers from my corned beef. Chris and I absolutely loved these sandwiches. We had them with leftover cabbage and potatoes on the side, but could barely eat any of the veggies because the sandwiches were so filling!! I almost hate to say it because the corned beef and cabbage was so good, but these may have been even better!

In order to make Reubens you need stone ground mustard, thousand island dressing, swiss cheese (I used reduced fat), sauerkraut, rye bread, and corned beef. The horseradish is optional, Chris and I ended up deciding against it and just going the traditional Reuben route.
