DIRECTIONS:

Follow the instructions on the back of the Texas Toast box and cook the bread first on a cookie sheet. It's 8 minutes at 425 degrees.

Once those are cooked, spoon on your pizza sauce and spread it out onto your toast, keeping them on the cookie sheet.

Throw your mini pizzas back into the oven at 425 degrees, and watch these pizzas. Once the cheese is melted to your likeness, pull them out of the oven. Let them cool, and enjoy.

DJ's Kitchen: An AMAZING Southern Utah Original Recipe!

attachment-mac and tomato juice
loading...

Tonight, I was having a craving for a meal that I grew up on. A meal my mom grew up on, and a meal her mom grew up on. It should probably have a sexier name, but we call it Macaroni & Tomato Juice.

When I was a kid and we would have this for dinner, it always felt like a "Broke Family Meal." But now I'm an adult, and it's a total delicacy! I love this meal!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Macaroni
  • Tomato Juice - NOT SAUCE - Juice.
  • Shredded Cheese
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • Diced Onion
  • Salt, Pepper, Seasoning

DIRECTIONS:

Get that ground beef on the frying pan. When it's about halfway done, throw on some diced onions (As many as you'd like). Simultaneously, get water boiling for your macaroni! If you're a real star, you can get your beef done at the same time your macaroni is done.

Next, strain your macaroni and put it back into the pan. Add your ground beef with onion.

Now, add your tomato juice. You should be adding a lot. It should be soupy kind of.

Get your burner back on, and throw in some cheese. I add a lot of sharp cheddar!

Once it's boiling and warm again, I stir that all together and put it in a bowl to enjoy! I like eating it with a spoon, so I get the juice too!

Now, once it's all cooled off, or put in the fridge, when you reheat it, you'll have to add more tomato juice or it won't be runny anymore. ENJOY!

Southern Utah's BEST Homemade Ramen Recipe!

I grew up on Top Ramen, but now that I'm older I've discovered ACTUAL RAMEN, and it's probably my favorite! This weekend I decided to try my own Homemade Ramen, and it's SERIOUSLY INCREDIBLE! The best part: It's REALLY inexpensive too!

1. Two packages of Chicken Ramen Express by Chef Woo.

Vegetarian, No Dairy, and no MSG, made in the USA, baby! They cook in 3 minutes once the water is boiling!

2. 3 Cups Great Value Chicken Broth (1 cup water)

This chicken broth was like $1.90 and obviously WAY BETTER than just water for your ramen! The Ramen calls for 2 cups of water per package. I will do at least 1 1/12 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup water for more flavor!

3. Half Can Great Value Sweet Corn

Adding corn to ramen seems so simple.. But it makes a HUGE difference! Throw it in when the noodles are soft and boiling.

4. A few splashes of Soy Sauce

This helps with the flavor just a little bit. I probably do 4 or 5 splashes into the boiling ramen!

5. Great Value Parmesan Cheese

Throw this on top after your ramen, and ramen seasoning is in your bowl! I love it. A lot of people don't do parmesan on their ramen, but it's SO GOOD!

5. French Fried Onions

I would've never thought these could be SO GOOD in ramen, but they are! They get soft, and add that onion flavor. SO SO SO GOOD!
