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.
Tired of cooking pork chops only to have them turn out tough and dry? Try this recipe and you will never worry about that again. This was posted on the TOH bulletin board by avidcook_GA and is truly a keeper.
My hairdresser gave me this recipe years ago and I've made it so many times that I've come to think of it as my own. I've never served it to anyone who didn't like it. It's important that you use the combination of soups as listed or the gravy won't taste the same and the Monterey jack cheese adds such a creamy taste without being overwhelmingly cheesy. If you prefer a bottom crust, you may use a second can of the crescent rolls. I usually just use a top crust. The prep time is just an estimate since I usually cut up the ingredients early in the day and put in plastic baggies in the fridge.
Round steak is not known for its tenderness.
This recipe can be used over noodles, rice,
cous cous and great over fried potato rounds.
Slow cooking in the oven but you can use slow cooker also, just add two hours.Any tough cuts of meat can be used including pork.
This is my family's favorite quiche recipe. I tend to make it on Friday nights, when my vegetarian stepdaughter arrives home from the week at university with a large appetite for something home-cooked and satisfying. Serve with a bowl of soup or a salad, and you've got just that. What makes it so delicious in my opinion is the "secret ingredient" . . . mustard smeared on the bottom of the crust.I have noted one TBS in the recipe, but use as much as you need to provide an even coating. This quiche definitely tastes as good cold as warm from the oven, and makes a nice appetizer when cut in small portions, as well.
This is a beef stew that my mother, Leona would usually make in the fall. The scent of it cooking in the house was heavenly! Something about the chianti wine really added a wonderful flavor to the stew. It's a family favorite.
Now THIS is Lancaster County cooking! This is an Amish/Mennonite specialty dish! You will NOT be disappointed! Of course in our area, many of the markets and butcher/meat shops, sell ham loaf meat (already ground and mixed) but I've simplified this by making it possible for all of you outside of the area to create your own! This is SO delicious! ENJOY!
This is a dish we had a lot growing up. Mum would use potato chips for a crunchy topping, but I hardly ever have those in the house. It is relatively quick, and inexpensive and can be stretched even further with a green salad.
Years ago a friend use to make these whenever my boyfriend (now DH for 34 years) would be invited to dinner. Very inexpensive and the kids loved them growing up (without the tomato). I always served them with tomato soup. Quick and easy.
I got this recipe from an old Pillsbury book. They had the lighter, healthier version vs the older higher fat version. I opted for the higher fat version....its comfort food, don't mess with it! (if you want to make the ligher version just substitue low fat milk, reduced fat cheese and 98% fat free soup)
Sloppy Joes are not easy to eat--that's half the fun for kids of all ages. Adults who like spicy food can add hot sauce at the table. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine.
This recipe is delicious! It also is very, very versatile. It's been used for sloppy joes, also combined with rice and used as a filling for stuffed peppers. Put it in a tortilla and top it with salsa and cheese. You can put it in spaghetti sauce and serve it over pasta. It makes a lot, so I can have sloppy joes the first night and use it in a different dish the second night. This recipe freezes well too!
