Cheesy Beef Skillet Dinner
Cheesy Beef Skillet Dinner

It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief.

The holidays are over.

Are you all in one piece? Make it through Christmas unscathed? Got it done, packed up your decorations, thrown out the last of the endless turkey leftovers and have sat down on the couch with one big sigh of relief?

We made it. We survived. My confession?

We eat out all the time during the holidays because I am so busy baking and writing that I rarely make dinner. Which to me, is a confession because shouldn’t I be cooking more as a food blogger? Seems wrong to be eating out all the time when most bloggers are posting amazing dinner and appetizer recipes and I keep giving you desserts.  Eh. You keep coming back for some reason!

My next recipe as a Campbell’s Ambassador is one that was a lifesaver during the Christmas season. This all in one skillet was absolutely sumptuous. To be honest, with the picky eaters that I have in my house -my husband included- I didn’t know how this one was going to go over.

I was in like Flynn, however, because this baby was a one pot meal.

It was scarfed back.  I mean it was seriously inhaled by my family. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this – Dijon mustard with mushroom soup? Say what? – but oh my word, yes yes yes this is a winner dinner!


I was even a rebel and I made this skillet dinner with white flour pasta.

I’m pretty sure you all let loose with a collective gasp of disbelief, didn’t you?

Yes. I skipped out on my usual whole wheat pasta.

And oh man, was it good. 

I wanted this to be a complete comfort food and it was. Next time I will use my whole wheat pasta, but man, what a treat this was.

Now, the Karlynn tweaks?

I would totally use ground turkey and whole wheat pasta in this next time to lighten it up and add some healthier fibers but other than that it’s a dinner winner!

Love you guys more than chocolate,
