    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.

    Recipe #329784

    My mom got this recipe online a few years back and bribed me to make it. (She's a disaster in a kitchen!) We all fell in love with it. Very easy to make comfort food.

    Recipe #195849

    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.

    Recipe #346983

    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.

    Recipe #333771

    These were made by my grandmother while I was growing up. Whenever she made them, some always made their way to our house. She would make them in the morning and put them on a platter and into the refrigerator they went until suppertime--probably to tighten up. I remember seeing them sitting there with waxed paper over them. These are so good if you mash them a little on your plate and put butter and salt on them. It is a way to use up leftover rice which is what Grammie did. She didn't throw anything away. She even saved all her leftover meat whether it be one hamburg patty, or a hotdog, or a roast and would grind them up at the end of the week and used the following recipe but with meat instead of rice. She would add some chopped onion to the meat. She didn't waste anything. The rice is held together with an egg and white sauce. Grammie never measured so this is about what I use to make mine. The time listed is if you keep them in the refrigerator for a few hours, but you could have them sit only about an hour or so.

    This is a good recipe lots of herbs and when you serve over rice its wonderful. I hope you enjoy. Cowboys use to fry their steaks in this manner!!!

    Recipe #128460

    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!

    Not for people watching their salt intake, but OH this is good

    Not your average tuna casserole recipe.

    Recipe #128481

    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 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.

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

    Recipe #264251

    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.

    Recipe #273842

    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

    A delicious recipe using red cabbage, fragrant spices & apples or pears; whilst this is happily cooking away, the spicy smell pervades the kitchen & indeed the rest of the house and heralds the start of my festive baking & freezing season - who needs expensive pot-pourries! Not only is this dish delectable to eat alongside turkey, pork, beef and hams in particular - but the colour is just gorgeous, a rich jewelled ruby red! This cabbage can be kept warm for long periods, reheated and also freezes very well, making it a very well behaved recipe!!
