My mom used to make this as a simple and addictive appetizer when I was a kid. I have NEVER seen this anywhere, but my guess is that it's a Midwestern type dish. The flavors are unusual but incredibly good. The ham should NOT be paper thin, but should instead be more thickly sliced.
Embarrassingly good and decadent. Surprisingly easy! I like to make this for holidays. It is reminiscent of Boston Market's Creamed Spinach.
This is a good comfort food, as it is kind of bland. You can spice it up with cayenne or whatever, but I like the simple tastes of the spinach and the creamy sauce. This is GREAT to make ahead, and is actually better once it has had a chance to sit and let the flavors blend.
Very easy to make, very rich cookies. One is actually enough! I have never been able to get these to look like spiders, and they make me think of the various "Bird's Nest" cookies. They are fun for Halloween, though! DO keep these in the freezer--they get messy really fast!
This was my favorite side dish growing up. I lost the recipe, and have had to recreate it from memory, so there may be a few kinks. I'm still working on it! It is a wonderful dish, easy to make. It goes with everything from Thanksgiving dinner to a weekday night, and is especially good with ham.
This is a little different from the other Texas Caviar recipes posted. It's really easy and delicious. I also sometimes add chopped onion and/or cilantro. This can be enjoyed with tortilla chips, on top of grilled chicken, or rolled up in a tortilla or pita bread. My favorite lunch is to spread hummus on a pita bread and then top with Texas Caviar. Yum!
Very easy and delicious. It is similar to enchiladas, but still different. Needs to be started the night before you want to eat it. This can also be made with 1 lb. ground beef and 1 can of refried beans, but I have never made it that way.
