Getting Creative With KD

Anyone who knows me really well will know that I LOVE Kraft Dinner! Yes – the one who enjoys making all these different varieties of food could not live without Kraft Dinner! It’s one of my FAVORITE foods!

And anyone who has experienced MY Kraft Dinner, they know I’m the QUEEN of KD! Not only do I make it super creamy and cheesy (the right order and proportions will MAKE or BREAK your KD), I love it with lots of pepper and ketchup – and the only way to eat it, it’s with a spoon!

Ok, ok, enough about my Kraft Dinner fetish. Here are a few different varieties of recipes if you want to spice up your KD:

  • If you’re like me and enjoy ketchup with your KD – what do you do if you run out? Have no fear; Salsa is here to save you… yes Salsa!

Might sound odd, but I assure you, your KD will not only be amazing, but will also (so I’ve been told) taste like Pizza! Just stir in the salsa in after you’ve cooked your KD according to the package.

Trust me, try it!

  • If you have ground beef, shredded cheese, tomato sauce and (of course) KD, why not make lasagna?

Cook your KD as directed on the package, brown the beef (you can add onions, peppers, etc..) and start the layering process! Just make sure you finish with the cheese.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

  • You have the obvious adding your hot dogs, pieces of ham, peas – why not broccoli, or chicken, or even black olives? Feta or bocconcini cheese? Think of your favorite pasta combinations! Here’s an example of a Primavera:

KD Primavera

1 pkg. Kraft Dinner

2 tbsp. Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing

1 cup broccoli florets

1 cup red pepper strips

1 cup frozen peas

¼ tsp. basil leaves, chopped

2 tbsp. Parmesan Grated Cheese

Prepare Kraft Dinner as directed on package.

Meanwhile, heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add broccoli and peppers; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in peas; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Add Kraft Dinner and basil; mix lightly. Top with Parmesan.

Be Adventurous! Be Creative!
