This comes from my twin sister Julie. People always ask for the recipe when this dish is served, and it makes a great lunch the next day too. Hope you like it as much as our family does--and thanks, Julie, for giving me this recipe in the first place! (This is my very first recipe I've posted, so reviewers please be kind!)
I found the basis for this meatloaf in the Woman's Day 12-volume Encyclopedia of Cookery that I bought in 1966, 1 book a week, at the grocery store. I have adjusted it over time to reflect today's health issues, such as lower salt and fat. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that the proportions are always right, so it can be used as the basis for meat balls, and other loaves such as ham, chicken, salmon or whatever comes to mind.
I've made these for so long that I'm not sure of the recipe origin. They never fail, are easy to make & always good. They also work well & impress as a starter if served with crisp veggies, tartar sauce or a light mayo sauce thinned-with-milk & flavored with lime juice, dill & chives. Makes 4 patties of entree size or 6-8 of starter size. *Edited to Add* -- My spec thx to Chef JillAZ for reviewing this recipe for the Freezer Tag Game in the OAMC Forum & for the info she provided. Pls see Note #2 at the end of Prep Steps for this info. :-)
Bannock is a bread used primarily by the North American First Nations People. I got this recipe during a 3 day field trip with my daughter's grade 7 class (many, many moons ago!!!). Not knowing what bannock was, we were making up this awful glue mess and cooking it over the fire, like the natives used to do. It wasn't until way into the day that I realized it was like a baking soda biscuit that we managed to get it right, (plus, because of rain, we got to go indoors and use an oven) My bad!!! This recipe is lower in fat and calories because it is not fried up like the traditional way. I have been using this recipe for many years since...and doing it the proper way!!!
I saw this made on Foodtv. I'm not big on meatloaf but DH is so I thought I'd give it a try. It is quite tasty and DH really enjoyed it. I think this could be easily altered for different flavors or cuisines. It is supposed to be a healthier version of the one your mother made. I made this without the prosciutto.
I created these one day for my kiddies when I couldn't find a recipe that fit my bill. They turned out great! Note: If you like fluffy pancakes stir wet ingredients into dry with a wooden spoon leaving some lumps (more lumps=bigger cakes), alternately if you like thin pancakes, like me, use your blender to mix all the ingredients at once and blend until smooth UPDATE: SEPT '07: For those who don't like really thick pancakes try reducing flour by 1/2cup and replacing it with milk, this will give a runnier batter and should give a thinner pancake :)THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS EVERYONE!!! (GOOD AND BAD, WE ALL LEARN FROM CRITISISM TOO ;) )
This recipe came to me by way of the February 2005 Zaar recipe adoption. Don't let the amount of vinegar concern you. The finished product does not have a sour taste at all, and I was quite pleased with the recipe. The only changes I made were to reduce the amount of salt and increase the amount of chicken, as the marinade makes a substantial amount. If you choose to halve the recipe, I would recommend using the full amount of the marinade ingredients to keep the flavor in balance. Note: edited 3/19/07 to add freezing instructions for OMAC.
Simple baked beans that taste like beans, not sauce. Although the recipe calls for white beans, I recommend you substitute any "nutty" tasting beans like yellow-eye or cranberry. Use filtered soft or bottled water for better flavor and faster cooking. You can reheat left-overs in the microwave with a little water, covered.

These take time because of the long marinating time, but are well worth it. They are to die for if you love ribs! I didn't include the marinating or cook time in the preparation time and only included the actual time boiling & grilling in the cook time, but because of the long marinating time, you'll need to do start these the day before you want to prepare them.
