What beer pairs well with Lasagna French Bread and a movie?
The beer: Lager from Simpler Times.
We pick this beer up at Trader Joe’s. It tastes great and is a great value at less than $5 for a 6-pack.
Is Trader Joe’s a great place to buy beer?
Yes! Not only do they have a great selection of beers, they also let you taste anything you want before buying.
What movie pairs well with crunchy french bread pizzas and a cold beer?
For this Mitten Movie Night we are starting Harry Potter from the very beginning. We are heading to Florida in a few weeks and visiting Universal Studios while there.
This will be Little A’s first time going when he can actually enjoy everything there. He wasn’t even 2 the last time we went so I’m excited to get him into the movies so he will understand just how cool that part of the park is.
How to make Lasagna French Bread:
In a pan brown the ground beef until cooked through, drain the grease.
To the same pan add onions and garlic. There should be grease still in the pan, if not add a small amount of olive oil. Lightly brown then add the ground beef back to the pan. Now add the spaghetti sauce and cook until warmed through and all mixed together.
Cut the French bread loaves in half and removing some of the bread in the center.
Tips for making great french bread:
- Removing some of the bread in the center makes a
shallow area for adding the cottage cheese fillings. Makes it so much easier to eat!
- Brush some melted butter and garlic on the bread to give it a ‘garlic bread’ feel.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
On a baking sheet lay down some parchment paper. Place the cut bread on top.
In a small bowl mix together the cottage cheese and beaten egg together. Place the mixture into the wells of the bread.
Spread the ground beef mixture on the top of the cottage cheese mixture evenly over the 4 slices of bread.
Finally spread the shredded cheese on top.
Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until cheese is golden and bubbly.
