Simple Crock Pot BBQ Sandwiches

So this recipe is so easy some of you might laugh and say I don’t even need a recipe for this. And then some of you are like me and you are like instructions, thank goodness! This is a simple, delicious crock pot recipe for Pork BBQ Sandwiches. It’s so easy and so good! I got this recipe from my Aunt Kay after having it at her house many times.

Buy a pork loin (boneless).
Put pork in crockpot. Add a couple bay leaves and a cup or 2 of water (The water is just to keep the meat from sticking – you are going to drain it later).
Cook for 6 to 8 hours on low. Meat will pull apart easily with a fork when it is done.
Drain water from meat and discard bay leaves and water.
Pull pork – or chop.
Return pork to crock pot.
Add bbq sauce and re-heat.

See? So simple! I love being able to come home to a meal in the crock pot. We had this last week and it was delicious. Per usual, I forgot to take a picture but it looks like any other bbq sandwich and I will add one next time we have it. I use honey bbq sauce but that is my personal preference. It will be good with any sauce of your choosing! Enjoy!


Delicious Zucchini Pie

We have a snow day here! Hooray! So I am using the time to catch up on things and Tyler is here working hard from home. This is a day that it’s nice to have a job that you can’t take home with you.

So I thought I would share my Zucchini Pie recipe. I got this recipe from my mom. I have been enjoying it for years, I’ve used it in my nanny job and found it kid-friendly (for the not too picky child) and it’s husband friendly as it is my husbands most requested meal!

-1/2 lb. sausage or ground beef (I always use ground beef)
-4 cups thinly sliced Zucchini (2 big ones)
-Onion (I usually leave the onion out because if you have not noticed, I hate chopping onions)
-1/2 cup margarine
-2 T. parsley flakes
-1/2 t. salt
-1/2 t. pepper
-1/4 t. garlic powder
-1/4 t. basil
-1/4 t. oregano
-2 eggs
-1 8 oz pkg. mozzarella cheese
-1 pkg. Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls

-Brown ground beef
-Separately- cook and stir thinly sliced Zucchini, chopped onion, and 1/2 cup margarine for 10 minutes
-Stir in -parsley, salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil and oregano
-Add and combine 2 beaten eggs, mozzarella cheese and browned ground beef

Crust: Line pie tin with crescent rolls and place in oven at 350 for 10 minutes to pre-cook the crust

-Pour mixture into crust
-Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes
-Let stand 10 minutes before serving

Hopefully that made sense! If not leave a comment with questions. We always have this meal with rice. It is great mixed in with the rice and with a little applesauce on the side. I’m like a kid in that I love applesauce with all of my meals.
