Recipe Book Pages

 This page has Cheesy Onion Casserole and Pizza Grilled Cheese recipes.  I used some of the kitchen themed stickers I found at Scraptopia and photos from the internet where I found the recipes.
This recipe for Crisp Cucumber Salsa was one I found on Pinterest.  It just sounded so unusual that I had to give it a try. Now I know that I cannot make it unless I plan not to eat anything else!  I've made it several times and wind up eating almost the whole thing.

Cheesy Onion Casserole

    2-3 Tbs butter or margerine
    3 large sweet onions or 4 medium white or yellow onions
    2 c. shredded swiss cheese (8 oz.)
    1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted**
    2/3 c. milk
    1 tsp. soy sauce
    8 or so slices of French bread

Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat, and add onions.
Saute onions until clear, a little brown is ok. In a shallow 2 qt.
casserole pan, layer onions, 2/3 of cheese and pepper to taste.

In a sauce pan, heat soup, milk, and soy sauce, stirring to blend.
Pour soup mixture in a casserole and stir gently to mix. Top with
 bread slices. Bake at 350 uncovered for 15 minutes. After
15 minutes, top of bread should be nice and toasted.

Push bread slices under the sauce and top with the remaining cheese.

Bake for 15 more minutes and you are done!

Pizza Grilled Cheese

   4 sliced bread
    4 mozzarella, sliced
    pepperoni (cut in half or mini)
    italian seasoning or basil
    parmesan cheese (opt)
    pizza sauce (for dipping)

Butter each piece of bread on one side. When skillet
is hot place a piece of bread butter side down on the
skillet then add one slice of cheese and small shake
of Italian seasoning or basil (add a small shake of
parmesan cheese here too if desired). Top with a
desired amount of pepperonis  Add another slice of
mozzarella and top with slice bread butter side up.
Repeat with second sandwich. When bottom slice
is golden brown then flip over carefully. Once both
sides are brown remove from pan cut and serve with
pizza sauce if desired.
