Works for Me Wednesday: The Five-Ingredients-Or-Less Edition

wfmwbanner1.jpgWednesday again! And time for Works for Me Wednesday, when bloggers from all over link their posts to Shannon’s site (after you read mine—leave a comment or a hello or a recipe of your own—you can click over to Shannon’s site and read tons of recipes from bloggers all over! Here’s a quote from Shannon on today’s topic: “I have really been looking forward to this edition of WFMW. It was specially requested by several of you. I suspect you’re feeling the same pinch at the grocery store that our family has noticed. Well, and there’s that whole get-me-out-of-the-kitchen-because-it-is-July-and-I-am-hot issue. Either way, fewer ingredients are a good thing.”

We prepared ours last night—it’s also an “every man-woman-child for him/herself” kind of meal.

Gourmet pizza
pocketless pitas, one per serving, or a large Persian bread
jar of bruschetta topping, the more gourmet the better
turkey kielbasa sausage, or pancetta, or any other single topping you desire
shredded mozzerella cheese
good parmesan cheese (reggiano if you can)

Everyone assembles their own, then bake in a 350° oven (at our house it’s the toaster oven—keeps the kitchen cooler) until the cheese bubbles.

It takes 10 minutes prep, maybe 10 to cook, and only a cutting board and shredder to clean up. It works for me! And it especially works for kids four and up, and is a hit at casual dinner get-togethers.

Do you have any five-ingredients-or-less recipes for me and your fellow readers? If so, click reply and share! I promise to Jacquelyn’s-test-kitchen test drive them, with stunning step-by-step photography in an upcoming blog posting that you can save in your family’s e-scrapbook. Sounds like fun! Send them on!
