    Cheap, easy and so very good. An uncomplicated and traditional old-timey recipe. Cooking time doesn't include chill time.

    Recipe #437289

    I found the basic recipe for this in the TOH 1994 Annual Recipes. It was sent in to them by Ruth Tacoma of Falmouth, Michigan. The original called for 2 medium potatoes, peeled and grated. But to save time, I decided to use frozen shredded hashbrowns that had been thawed. If needed squeeze the water out of the potatoes with your hands. Prep time doesn't include cooking the bacon.

    The original recipe was found in the 1998 edition of Taste of Home's " The Best of Country Cooking ".I did add alot of different ingredients that wasn't in the original, but I still wanted to thank Kim McMurl of Fargo, North Dakota for sending the original into them.Make sure to let meatloaf " rest " for a few minutes, so it won't fall apart when you slice it.

    This is a Awesome (!) meatloaf that I've adapted from a turkey meatloaf recipe from allrecipes.com. The original recipe calls for 2# of ground turkey, but this recipe is better with 1# of ground chicken and the added shredded veggies. You can use ground turkey, but I personally prefer the milder taste of ground chicken. This meatloaf tastes amazing and is a great way to incorporate more colorful veggies into your menu (or to hide them for picky little ones). Bon apetit!

    While perusing an article in the Charlotte Observer that asked readers to submit their favorite macaroni/cheese recipes, noticed one that was just too simple to be any good. Well, the wife and I could not stop eating it! This might be the easiest of all comfort foods, one to carry us throough the recession. The author topped hers with cooked sausage links, but it is great as a stand alone. Served mine with cornbread, slaw and crowder peas.

    Call it what you will, traditional British cheese on toast is a national institution, an iconic snack enjoyed by all, regardless of class or background! What can be simpler and tastier, hunks of homemade or crusty farmhouse style bread topped with mature Cheddar cheese, a smidge of mustard and Worcestershire sauce for those who desire an extra kick! This is NOT really a recipe; it is a basic method for making a super tasty and nutritious fast food dish. There is even a Cheese on Toast Day celebrated in the UK - mark your calendars now, the last Thursday in April has been set aside for this comforting supper treat. I lived on cheese on toast whilst I was a student, as I am sure most students do nowadays! You can use other British cheeses, but I find the best cheese without a doubt, is a good mature farmhouse cheddar. Make sure your bread is thickly sliced and you have your plates ready and waiting to receive the molten cheesy snack - pull up a chair by the fireside in the winter and enjoy your 5-minute culinary efforts! (This is an all year around snack I hasten to add.) An interesting historical note; toasted cheese was served as the final course to male diners during Edwardian times, in Gentleman's Clubs........the cheese was melted and served in a pot with the toast set around the edges - a sort of Gentleman's Club fondue!

    Do not make this recipe...it is not good!!!***Posting later to let everyone know...I wouldn't make this recipe again, I posted it on a friends recommendation. I really do not care for this recipe and do not recommend that you make it!***My friend from work gave me this recipe. She has to feed a wide spread of ages; she has herself and her husband, a 17 year old, 9 year old, and an almost 3 year old. She said everyone loved this. When she got home from work, everyone had already started on it, and she only got a little tiny bit! So I knew I had to give it a try! I tried it using homemade mashed potatoes, and they sort of ran down into the meat. I think the instant potatoes would be drier and probably work better in the recipe.

    Fast becoming a classic, Tartiflette is the perfect palliative supper dish for chilly autumn and winter evenings. This delicious, rich and hearty dish hails from the Alpine Haute Savoie region of France. For authenticity's sake, try to get hold of a whole Reblochon cheese. Reminiscent of Camembert or Brie in flavour, texture and shape, Reblochon has the perfect melting quality for Tartiflette. In addition, as this dish can be prepared a day or so ahead, it could make the ultimate Bonfire Night or Halloween centrepiece! This is a truly indulgent dish, which is best appreciated after a strenuous morning on the ski-slopes — or at least a brisk winter’s morning walk. It is important to use a ripe Reblochon, preferably bought a few days in advance and left to reach maturity out of the fridge. For this to happen, it should be uncategorised. Of course, if you have a good cheese monger you will be able to buy one ripe and ready to eat. Serve the Tartiflette hot and straight from the gratin dish with fresh salad, crusty bread and assorted pickles. Edited to add: One reviewer made a comment that you should fry the bacon and discard the fat - it IS stated in the main instructions to do just that! Also, if your potatoes are not cooked after 15 minutes plus 25 minutes in the oven, you have not cut them thin enough - try to cut them quite thinly, as shown in all the photos. Reblochon cheese is a very STRONG cheese - do not try this recipe if you are not a lover of strong cheese! Merci:-)

    I saw this on Alton Brown's show "Good Eats" and it looked very interesting. I have never seen it done this way. Will try in the next few days.

    This came from TOH. DH loves this recipe. Actually it is 2 recipes, salmon and sauce. I have frozen the patties, uncooked. I have also used leftover salmon instead of canned. This goes great with a raisin pilaf and the one I use has a matching oven temperature of 375 degrees.

    Recipe #293357

    There are a million different ways to make this, but I found this recipe to be simple, quick, and I always have the ingredients on hand. The steak is tender and flavorful, and the gravy is downright addicting!

    Recipe #286485

    Baking meatloaf was sending an aroma of goodness through the oven door, that followed like a wave to the family room. "Oh boy", my Dad, (who is 89) said, "Now, that smells good!" My Dad is not a man the gives compliments easily, nor is he the gushy type. But he is a hard working man, even at the age of 89 that appreciates (abate quietly) the finer things of life. The comfort of meatloaf begs to have a comforting, but a simply prepared side dish that will fill the stomach and bring happiness ever so quietly, to your soul. Late in the Fall we had dug potatoes, (even though it was still quite warm out for our State) and I had put them in the dark, cool basement to carry us through the winter and early Spring months. I went down to the basement and grabbed a few little potatoes and quickly went about making this very simple, but very heart warming potato dish, of course to feed my Dad as well as my family. Sometimes, there is nothing more satisfying then the normal, simple potato. I have used this recipe for probably 40 years, and to this day, it is as good tasting and filling as it was years ago.

    I have been eating these since my childhood. Normally I make these with leftover slaw so the ratio of slaw may be off. The recipe was inspired by Recipe #262230 which was posted by Chef rickoholic83. The dressing makes a wonderful dressing for coleslaw. You may have leftover dressing, it can also be served on a fruit salad or lettuce wedges.

    Recipe #280143

    These are so delicious you will DANCE AROUND THE TABLE!!! A good southern vegetable dish that goes well with chicken, pork or beef. My family always had a big garden and grew butter beans. We would sit on the back porch and shell beans to put into the freezer. We tried to pick the tinest beans because of their flavor. Now, with a busy life a purchased bag of these beans not only bring back memories, but are popular in our every day meals. Purchase the bag that states "tiny" or "baby" lima beans. They make a pretty dish when having guests. The ham and bacon drippings will provide some saltiness; therefore, use the small amount of salt and give it a taste test.

    From Eat Better America. Sounds really good. Have to try this soon.

    Recipe #264251

    I have cooked chicken pot pie many times and have finally perfected a recipe which is a success. It has the right consistency and flavor which we enjoy. And now, I'm sharing this easy dish with you!

    Recipe #252735

    I love this meal for it's ease and down home goodness. You can make this one dish meal in less than 30 minutes. It's pretty too! You could substitute chopped carrots for the red pepper if you'd prefer. It reminds me of chicken pot pie without the 'pie'. Comfort! It makes A LOT so you can serve half of it and freeze the other half for a quick dinner some other night. From Simple & Delicious courtesy of Danette Forbes. *NOTE: this recipe does not include many spices, etc.. It is meant to be a comfort food type of recipe. If you enjoy spice, go ahead and throw some in!! This recipe is also versatile in terms of what veggies you like. Have fun with it. :)

    Recipe #248350

    This looks very kid friendly, from August BHG 2007.

    Recipe #240842

    I think this is an old Martha Stewart recipe. I haven't tried this one in a long time, but I remember it being very good. You will need a candy thermometer for this.
