In the dim recesses of my memory, I recall being served something like this at church potlucks when I was little. I figured I might as well try it out and write it down - someone might find it interesting and tasty. ;) The onion rings in this casserole bake into a nice kind of "onion fluff."
...or Grapeballs or Those Meatball Things You Make! There are a lot of copies of this old favorite out there, and here's my version. It has a few more ingredients than the usual, but they make these tasty tidbits even more incredibly delicious!
I wanted to make a different sort of meatloaf for dinner last night, and this is what I came up with. This meatloaf is moist and cheesy and oh-so-delicious! Tastes pretty darn good cold, too. :) I often make a double batch and freeze one in a disposable meatloaf pan to give to bachelor friends.
We were feeling like having a bit of Chile Colorado tonight, but weren't looking forward to the hours of watching over it would require with cubed beef; and besides, all the beef was frozen. So I looked in the freezer to see what I could come up with, and hey -- there were meatballs in there! The resulting Chile Colorado Meatballs were "very" tasty, and in addition to being a great dinner item I think will make a really nice potluck and/or appetizer dish in the future. Here's the quick and easy recipe I created for our crockpot.
While watching FoodTV, I saw a piece about Amy Ruth's restaurant in New York where the owner made fried chicken dipped in a honey cinnamon mixture. It looked so good I began searching on the web for a recipe which approximated it... and after much browsing of webpages I put together a recipe that I thought might taste something like it. I don't fry my chicken, so here's a baked version, tweaked to my own tastes.
These are a deliciously healthy, filling meal, and good for both everyday eating and when your vegetarian guests come over for dinner! My non-vegetarian husband doesn't even miss the meat when I fix these. This is a *big* batch, so plan on leftovers. :) Good for picnics & potlucks, too... see note below.
I love hominy, but many people these days don't seem to even know what it is, and often a lot of folks think they don't like it. Well, after they taste it served this way, there's a very good chance they'll change their minds. :)
This an easy, very attractive, and tasty dish, perfect for the holidays! Your family will think you slaved over it, but you don't have to tell them the truth. ;) It's also perfect for taking to potlucks and picnics.
This is the recipe I came up with to make chicken korma to take to a potluck, based on the excellent korma recipe my husband uses. I wanted to make it in a casserole form that would be easy to just mix together and bake then take in the same pan to the potluck. The folks at the gathering loved it, so I think it came out pretty darn well. :)
From my Family Recipe Box, Mom loves this sandwich! "This sandwich is a 'smashing success'... in more ways than one. It's a great traveler." You must admit, it is pretty amusing. :) From the Family Recipe Box, dated 3/1/85. The sandwich keeps well, chilled, and is good for taking along on picnics and camping trips.
