White chocolate chips plus oreos makes a really simple 2 ingredient recipe for cookies n cream oreo bark

Yep, that’s really all there is to say about this:

Crazy Food’s 34 Simple Two Ingredient Recipes

I’m kind of in love with the fact that they all have pictures, too. Is that weird? Probably.

Most of them are desserts and some aren’t quite as exciting as I would hope for, but what can you expect when there are only 2 ingredients involved?

I’m really curious how some of these end up tasting, too. Like the pizza dough one…. is it really going to taste like pizza dough or is it going to be only sort of like pizza dough but really gross instead? The white thin mints one is really curious, too.

Homemade crescent rolls stuffed with broccoli, cheese, ham

Homemade croissants recipe

Broccoli and ham cheese stuffed crescent rolls are one of the earliest recipes I remember learning how to make.

We would’ve used canned crescent rolls, so as a kid, it was pretty easy for me to cut the packaged ham into tiny squares, shred the cheese, and mix the broccoli in with my hands.

Chopped broccoli with ham, cheese, and mustard

Unfortunately, it’s also another one that I don’t have a real recipe for either. (Kinda funny how this one involves broccoli, too.)

The basic breakdown?

  • A head of broccoli with florets chopped and boiled or steamed to be tender
  • A couple packages of cheap ham – In terms of ham bought from the deli, I’d call it about an inch stack, diced, give or take several bites
  • A half a block of cheese (about 4 oz?), shredded
  • A very large squirt of mustard….plus a couple small squirts after you taste-test and realize you still want it a little tangier

Stuffed broccoli croissants rolls with cheese, ham, and mustard

Mix it all together and pile onto 8 croissant rolls, canned or homemade. If the broccoli is still a bit warm, all the better because it’ll melt the cheese some and help it stick together.

How long to cook croissants
Bake at 375F for whatever the standard package says. If you want to make your own, I used a recipe similar to this one, I’m sure.

    Flaky stuffed croissants
Tip – My choice of using a pizza stone that you see in the first picture is not by chance. When working with pastries, it’s often key to keep the fat cold while working with it in order to create a flaky texture. That’s why it’s always best to chill pie crust before you use it.

With these croissants, I put the pizza stone in the fridge while I prepared the rest of the ingredients and then worked directly on the cold surface as much as possible before putting everything in the oven.

Wilted lettuce, beef bread rolls – Stuffed stir-fry rolls?

Beef or pork rolls with lettuce, onions, peppers, and then sliced like cinnamon rolls for dinner

I don’t know what these are.
I mean…I know what they are. I made them. I tasted them. They were delicious!
Cooked beef or pork rolls with wilted lettuce, onions, peppers, and then sliced into rolls for dinner
But I don’t know what they’re called or what exactly I put in them or what recipes I used to gather inspiration.
Yes, it’s one of those posts where I tell you how yummy a dish was but that because I made it so long ago and didn’t record all the details, I can’t help you recreate it.
I’ll tell you what I do know, though:

Browned ground beef, pork, or turkey plus a bowl of bread down that has been left to rise
I know that it’s a basic bread dough in that bowl. And I’m pretty sure that’s either ground pork or beef, but I’m not entirely sure which. Either would’ve worked well in this dish, though.

Wilted lettuce recipe - Sautee for a few minutes and then dry off

I know this is where it all started – lettuce. I had a bunch leftover and didn’t want any salads. I had wilted spinach before to use in various dishes, so I went looking for the answer to if it was possible to wilt lettuce (it is) and recipes for it (like this one…but with an actual recipe instead of only guesses).

Cooked beef or pork rolls with wilted lettuce, onions, peppers, and seasonings all diced up in a bowl

I know I ate way too much of the filling while I was working with this. It was delicious! I used up some leftover peppers and onions in there, too.

Bread dough that has been flattened out with fingers and rollnig pin to be ready to be filled and rolled

I know this made a huge mess. I should have done two rolls probably, but well, I didn’t.
Hindsight is 20-20, right? Or in this case, more like 20-300 because I can’t remember much of anything. :P

Filling for dinner rolls laid out on thin bread dough

I know that I was nervous about rolling this up. The bread dough stretched pretty thin and the filling wasn’t exactly dry.

Help! My bread dough and cinnamon rolls tore in the middle. How can I save it?
I know that I was right to be a little nervous. The above picture proves that it was easy to tear.

I know I also corrected this by making it my first cut so that none of the pieces ended up with any actual holes in them.

Beef or pork rolls with wilted lettuce, onions, peppers, and then sliced into rolls for dinner

I know that I thought they looked really cool once cut.

How many pictures should I take of the exact same dish?  Filling falling out of rolls

Slice these with dental floss? It would probably fall apart even more because the filling wouldn't be cut at all.

I know that I took way too many pictures of them because of that, too. They just looked so cool! They actually looked a lot better than the pictures I managed to take, too. Typical.

It makes 12 rolls/slices but the last couple are more like 'old maids' because they aren't real rolls

I know this “recipe” made roughly 10 beef rolls…and two “old maids” that I ate as soon as they came out of the oven.

The best of the cooked Cooked beef or pork rolls with wilted lettuce, onions, peppers, and then sliced into rolls for dinner
I know I was only slightly disappointed when these came out of the oven looking way uglier than they did when they went in.

Cooked beef or pork rolls with wilted lettuce, onions, peppers, and then sliced into rolls for dinner
I know it was only “slightly” because I can still remember the smell as they came out of the oven, even though it was over 2 years ago when I made them. So good.

Yay, cooked beef rolls or stirfry rolls with wilted lettuce and fillings 
And last but not least, I know that even though I don’t know the exact ingredients or ratios, that this is the kind of dish that you can make using whatever you have leftover in the fridge. I would use up stir-fry leftovers especially because the onions and peppers would already be prepared and wouldn’t lose too much by being cooked more.
