Focaccia Bread/Pizza crust

1 c. warm water
1 1/2 T. yeast
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 c. flour

Let rise 1/2 hour
Bake at 425 15-20 min.
My favorite is to use white alfredo sauce, chicken, brocolli and tomatoes. The kids seriously love this pizza. The crust has got a neat flavor. Sometimes I use less sugar, ( I think that tastes better)

Burrito Bake

Burrito Bake ( I made this at the fair one year and one grand champion!!!)

1 c. bisquick
½ c. water
1 can 16 oz. refried beans
1 lb. cooked hamburger
1 ½ c. grated cheese
Chopped tomatoes, lettuce, green onions, olives, ovacados…etc.
1 c. thick salsa

Grease pie plate. Mix bisquick, water, and beans. Spread in pie plate, and up sides. Add cooked hamburger, salsa and cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining ingredients and sour cream. YUM YUM!

Easy favorite!

Easy Breadsticks (stolen recipe from my sis Jorden!!!)

1 ½ c. hot water
2 TBL sugar
1 package yeast
3 c. flour
½ tsp. salt

Dissolve the sugar in the hot water, and let cool until it is finger warm! Add yeast, flour, and salt. Mix and kneed for 3 min. Let rise for 10 min. Roll out and cut into strips. Fold strips and twist. Place in pan. Pour melted butter over breadsticks, and add your favorite toppings. I like garlic and parmesan cheese! Let rise for 10 more min. bake at 375° for 20 min.

(I usually let them rise longer than the 10 minutes!!)
