(Update January 2017: To keep in line with the new blog focus on eating healthy, I’d like to mention there are ways to switch out family favorites to make them healthier. Using a Paleo recipe to make English muffins for this recipe would be a great start. ~ Shannon)
My children and I love to make English muffin pizzas. My oldest son and I like to try different toppings on our mini pizzas. This is a new one that we tried recently and really enjoyed.
1 Package of English muffins
Alfredo cheese sauce
Medium green pepper
Canned or fresh mushrooms (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Remove the fat from the steak. Cut the steak into small cubes. Chop the onion and green pepper. Coat a medium frying pan with cooking spray. Add the steak, onions and green pepper to the pan and cook until the vegetables are tender. If you want mushrooms, add them as well. While the meat and vegetables are cooking, halve the English muffins and place the halves on a cookie sheet. Spoon some Alfredo sauce onto each muffin and spread it. Cover each muffin with mozzarella cheese. When the meat and veggie mixture is done cooking, top each muffin with the mixture. Bake at 425 degrees until the cheese is melted and the muffins are crisp.
We always use store brand English muffins and mozzarella cheese for this recipe. The least expensive Alfredo sauce we have been able to find is Ragu brand.
NOTE: (From the administrator) To save even more money on this recipe, use fresh produce from your own organic garden.
