Eagle Point Emergency Recipes: 

Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings  

2 apples sliced and cored. 
2 sticks butter. 
2 cups sugar. 

2 tsp cinnamon. 
2 cans croissant rolls. 
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings1 can Mountain Dew.  

Preheat oven to 350. Spray bottom of 9 by 13 pan. Glass works best but isn’t crucial. 
Peel and core apples. Slice each into 6-8 pieces depending on how many croissant triangles per tube. Wrap each apple slice in a croissant triangle. Place in two rows in 9 by 13 baking pan. Melt butter, cinnamon and sugar together then mix and pour mixture over wrapped dumplings. 
Pour ½ to ¾ can of Mountain Dew around the perimeter and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. 
For crisper dumplings, bake at 375 for 30 minutes. 
Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream on top. This is a quick and easy potluck recipe. Enjoy!

Southwestern Meatloaf
Southwestern Meatloaf  
3 pounds ground chuck or turkey. 
1 tall sack of crushed crackers, Saltine-type. 
1 large onion. 
Salt, pepper & garlic to taste. 
1-2 eggs. 
1 small can tomato sauce. 
1 small can green chilies diced. 

Mix together and shape like bread loaf or leave flat in baking pan. 
Cook at 350-375 for 45 minutes. 
Remove and spread Ketchup over the top. 
Put back in oven and cook for another hour or until meat is done. 
When you place the pan in oven, be sure to put it on a baking sheet to catch any grease that bubbles over. No oven fires desired. LOL! 

Enchilada Pie
Enchilada Pie
3 lbs ground chuck or turkey. 
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese. 
Corn tortillas.
2 cans Enchilada sauce (Old El Paso red, mild is best in my opinion)
Salt. Pepper. Garlic.

Fry or brown meat in skillet. Season with salt, pepper and garlic. 
Finely chop 1 large onion. 
Drain meat grease off after cooked. 
Layer 6 yellow corn tortillas or white corn in 9 by 13 pan in two rows of three. 
Add a layer of meat, use about half of it. Then sprinkle on half the diced onion. 
Pour enchilada sauce over that.  
Sprinkle layer of shredded cheddar cheese next. Use about half your cheese. 
Start the layering process over in lasagna fashion. Tortillas, meat, onions, sauce, cheese, in that order. 
Cook at 350 to 375 for 45 minutes. 
After cooked, if desired, garnish with lettuce and tomato. 
Note: Can substitute red meat with chicken or ground turkey for a healthier meal. Can also use flour tortillas rather than corn.
