25 Quick Weeknight Meal Ideas – Featuring Cheesy Sausage Bagels

Those of you who are fans on Facebook already know it was a little last minute making super last night. I was also a long way from creative or inspired. Sometime I wish I was organized to make a list of items to have in the pantry, fridge or freezer for quick meal prep, but tonight that didn’t exist. I was really craving these little cheesy sausage bagels that my friend, Heather, makes from fresh pork sausage.

But, no mini bagels in the house. So, instead we had some quick spaghetti thanks to my pampered chef micro cooker.

Honestly, anyone needing quick meals and storing most of their meat in the freezer needs one of these puppies. But, back to the craving that wasn’t fulfilled tonight.

Start by splitting apart a bag of mini bagels. These bagels are sold at Wal-Mart and Aldi’s in the bread areas.  There are about a dozen bagels in a bag. So, you get quite a few. I have reheated these in the microwave for breakfast, so go ahead and make them all.

Brown a pound of sausage on the stove top or in your micro cooker. When it is complete browned, add about 8 ounces of velveeta and few teaspoons of dried parsley.

Then just spoon the cheese and meat onto the bagel halves.

Bake on 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

But, I am going to get more organized for inspiration. So, I have started organizing on Pinterest.

Lot’s of people suggested breakfast for supper when I vented on Facebook. So, here are some thoughts for that next time…

We have lots of ground pork and beef at our house. So, I needed some go to ground meat dishes.
