This is a new favorite of mine. My mom got it from one of her patients. You can adjust the taco seasoning depending on how spicy you like your foods. If you don't like really cheesy things, make sure you use reduced fat shredded cheddar. It melts so well, you don't even taste the cheese!
These are great to have on hand for busy weeknights. I make a big batch and freeze them so that we can have them on nights when there is no time for ANYTHING! Throw them in a preheated 350 degree oven still frozen and still in the foil and in an hour, you have a yummy hot dinner. Great for using up leftovers and OAMC. Originally from BHG monthly cooking contest - many years ago!
So I had a craving for meatloaf, yes meatloaf, and I haven't made it in years. I had some ideas of what I wanted to try, searched the net for general ideas and then came up with my meatloaf. It turned out to be the best meatloaf ever made in the history of cows and pigs. Ok, well my wife and I enjoyed it. I used homemade pickled eggs but I'm sure you can substitute regular hard boiled eggs.
We all have our different tastes for burgers I like mine flavorful and juicy this recipe will give you the best of both! see the bottom of the recipe for tips on even more extra juicy burgers! --- making a indentation in the middle of the uncooked burger will prevent the burgers from puffing up into meatballs shapes while cooking and keeps them flat --- do not add any salt into the burger mixture as the dry onion soup already has a lot of salt content, you can sprinkle some on towards the end of cooking if needed, if desired you may add in 3-4 tablespoons of your favorite barbecue sauce to the ground beef mixture
Mike loved this. I read numerous recipes online, then did it my way. I hate ketchup & wanted to avoid using it, I think the balsamic adds the vinegar that you miss from the ketchup with a little extra sweetness & flair. I have an extensive spice rack & pantry, so substitute if needed.
I originally found this taco casserole recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. Since then, I have made this recipe at least 50 times. I love it because the ingredients list isn't complicated and, based on the layers, I can readily remember all ingredients when I am at the store without my recipe card. I have served this for myself and had wonderful leftovers or many times I have made it for company with a nice green salad to accompany it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Meatball recipes are often challenged by chefs who claim, "Mine are the best!" Even though my meatballs ARE the best, I will make no such claim. Try them for yourself! This meatball recipe was given to me by my father who got it from a little old lady from Italy that he knew. It's amazing that she gave up her recipe to him, but I sure am glad she did!
This recipe came from a local church fund raising cook book. Mrs. Geraldine is a good friend of the family. She reminds me so much of Mrs. Clause, that I can't help but smile every time I think of her. This recipe freezes well. Do not bake before freezing. Just put it together, freeze it, thaw it and cook.
I know there are a lot of salisbury steak recipes out there but this is one my daughter makes a lot and I really enjoy it and don't want to lose the recipe. The gravy is delicious over mashed potatoes or noodles.
