    One of my favorite things to make (it has more then five ingredients but is fast) is taco casserole.

    Taco Casserole
    2lbs of hamburger
    small onion
    Brown the hamburger and onion in a skillet add the following:
    1 package of taco seasoning
    1 small can of tomato sauce
    1/2-1 whole can of refried beans
    Mix and heat until bubbly.
    Put hamburger mixture on top of crushed tortilla or corn chips.
    Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 350. Take the casserole out when their are about 5 minutes left to bake and put shredded cheese (as much as you like, I usually use about a whole bag) on top, put it back in the oven for 5 minutes and then top it with your favorite taco toppings (lettuce, sour cream, salsa, tomatoes)
    I should also say that we dish it out like lasagna before we put on our toppings. It is great for leftovers too!!

    breakfast for dinner

    I guess the easiest dinner is breakfast, Sausage, made into patties from the roll, (I get 5 per roll because I make them big enough to fit on a large biscuit) I love the pillsburry frozen biscuits they do take about 22 minutes to bake, and then make some scrambled eggs and cut some cantaloupe. If you want add cheese to the sausage biscuit or put your scrambled eggs on top to make a sandwich.

    Have you seen the pre-cooked frozen sausage at WalMart? The patties are HUGE and heat on the stove top or microwave quickly.

    A fun breakfast for company is breakfast burritos. Just set up the fixings (I do crumbled sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and bacon.) Have heated tortilla's and let them fix it their way.

    my mom bought some of those new crock pot bags. if you use them, make sure to put paper towels down around the crock pot. my mom made baked ziti in the crockpot and the grease from it ran down onto the plastic liner and the counter. but other than that, they are great. don't have to clean the pot!
