Tupperware Oval Microwave Cooker Recipes

Are you a mom who is busy and pressed for time? Looking for an easy and fast way to get dinner done? What about homemade cakes and desserts? If so, I suggest taking a look at the Tupperware Oval Microwave Cooker. This multi-level cooking device goes into your microwave and cooks food in a fraction of time! It comes with a recipe book to get you started and to show you how you can whip up some yummy meals and desserts quickly and easily. Here are a few of my favorite recipes.

Portabello Mushroom Pizzas Recipe
Makes 6-8 servings.

2 cups water
1 pkg. portabello mushroom caps (6 oz. cleaned)
10 layers fresh basil leaves (chopped)
1 layer garlic clove (crushed & diced)
1 tsp. olive oil
8 ounces mozzarella cheese (shredded, divided)
1 tomato (thinly sliced)

Place water in Base of Oval Microwave Cooker; place shallow colander on top of base. Place mushrooms in shallow colander, rounded caps down toward slits. Combine chopped basil leaves, diced garlic, and olive oil; brush mixture onto undersides of mushroom caps. Cover and microwave on high (100%) for 5-7 minutes, until mushrooms begin to cook. Remove from microwave and uncover. Layer each cap with cheese and a tomato slice; top with cheese. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted and mushrooms are hot. Remove from microwave & serve.

3/4 c. all-purpose flour, divided

Toss apple slices with 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup flour in base of Oval Microwave Cooker. Combine oats, cinnamon, remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar and remaining 1/2 cup of flour.

2 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 c. onion (1 small onion)
1/4 c. Italian Herb Seasoning
1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs

Some great looking recipes here! And thanks for your comment on the cookies post. I'm thinking of doing those for Valentines Day decorating.

Mind if I add your Tupperware link on the home business page on my website? I have links to several companies listed. I love Tupperware, but believe it or not, don't know anyone who sells it. :-)
