Ahhhh, comfort foods. From our childhood or from our present, comfort foods deserve a special place in our hearts and cookbooks. Here are some of mine and yours! Cover photo is Cast Iron Skillet Meatloaf.
I use chili sauce or salsa instead of ketchup to give a nice contrast to the sweetness of the brown sugar. A lighter version can be made using Splenda brown sugar blend, skim milk, and Egg Beaters. Got this one from the AllRecipes website. It's one of their most popular recipes.
If your prepared alfredo sauce already has garlic in it, then omit the garlic powder. Prep time does not include baking the potatoes. This recipe may be doubled if desired. My Alfredo sauce #164953 works great with this recipe!
I got so tired of crowding the table with toppings for baked potatoes that I decided to premix them, using our favorites. The "fat-ness" of the sour cream, butter/margarine & cheese can vary according to my whim. Use herbed sour cream dips to suit your fancy. This is my one-handed response to "please pass me the sour cream, butter, cheese, chives and bacon bits" while I continue eating with the other hand. ;-)
Adapted from a recipe by Top Secret Recipes, www.TopSecretRecipes.com, this is enjoyed by many, many people! You can make this recipe go alot faster by using already frozen storebought mac and cheese(reccomeded Stouffers-from the frozen dept. of the grocery store-pick up recipe after freezing directions)I have played around with this a little. Hope you enjoy!
This casserole was first served to me 30+ years ago by my sis in law Kathy. It is a real good fast recipe as you can have this done in less than 40 minutes. Kids love this--adults too. It is perfect for busy moms on days when you have to run the kids here and there. Only 4 ingredients and super easy to put together. The 6 ounces of ham is Hormel chunk ham in the can like tuna comes in. The thing would not accept 1 can of Hormel chunk ham no matter how hard I tried.
Anytime I go to a party or picnic, this dessert loaf is always requested. I took 8 mini-loaves to my husband's office Thanksgiving dinner and one of his partners took home four of them! This recipe came from my friend, who got it from her aunt. I entered '2 loaves' for number of servings. I hope that's right; I usually use mini-loaf pans. This is a very moist bread!! Do not overcook.
After trying several different recipes for lasagna, and combining the best of the best, I think I found the best combination yet. I will admit that this is not for the faint of heart; this is a very hearty dish.
*At the suggestion of a fellow Zaarian, use regular lasagna noodles (not the no boil type).
