Sweet potato casserole

Ingredients:
3 15 oz. cans sweet potatoes, drained and mashed
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c margarine, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 c milk
1 tsp vanilla

Topping:
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. margarine, melted


Directions:
Mix all the ingredients for the sweet potato mixture and put it in a pan (I used a 9x13).

Mix all the topping ingedients until crumbly. Add flour as necessary to get crumbs. Sprinkle on top of the sweet potato mixture.

Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes. (I think I baked mine longer because the topping still looked wet in the center. Just keep checking on it after the first 45 minutes.)

Title: Deep dish chicken pot pie

Description:
A very hearty and yummy pie. You can easily add or omit ingredients to your tastes. Warning - this makes a very full (heaping) pie. If you don't like a really full pie, cut back on the ingredients by half (except for the soup - add the full amount).

Ingredients:
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 deep dish pie crust (will use top and bottom - be sure to get deep dish or your filling won't fit)
2 cups chopped chicken, cooked
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 medium potato, chopped
2 small carrots, chopped
1-1/2 celery stalks
1/2 onion
mushrooms, chopped (didn't measure, put what looks good)
brocolli, chopped (didn't measure, put what looks good)
1 clove garlic
milk
salt and pepper to taste

thyme is a very popular ingredient in pot pies. I personally do not care for the taste of thyme. You can add it if you like, but it tastes great without it.



Directions:
1. Defrost pie crust according to directions

2. Add chicken, soup, peas, corn, and potatoes to a large bowl and mix.

3. Add remaining mixed veggies into pan and sautee until just tender (put a little oil into btm of pan). (You could probably omit this step, but I wanted to ensure that none of my veggies would be crunchy in my pie (yuck) and to let the flavors mix)

4. Add sauteed veggies into chicken mixture and mix well. Add enough milk so that the sauce is neither soupy or pasty. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add thyme if preferred.

5. Add the filling to the pie pan. Cover with the top crust and poke air holes into the crust.

6. Bake at 375 degress for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until crust is cooked and golden brown. If the edges get too dark, you can cover them with foil. I put my pie onto a baking sheet before putting it into the oven to make it easier to get into and out of the oven.

Default Tuna Noodle Casserole

Need:
1 small onion
garlic (I used jarred minced)
2 cans cream of something soup (I've used potato or cheddar)
3-4 cups of frozen corn
2 cans of tuna
Seasonings (whatever you like, I use salt, pepper, dill, oregano, crushed red pepper)
Egg Noodles, I think I use about 8-10 cups

In a saucepan cook up a small onion and some garlic (depends on your family's taste). When they are just browning add the corn, stir, add two cans of cream of potato soup (cream of cheddar works too). Add your seasonings to taste. Then add two cans of drained tuna. Heat through. Mix with hot egg noodles. I like to add some cheese to mine either cheddar, pepper jack, or parm.

It is really easy to make, in the time it took to boil water and cook the egg noodles, it was done. We had plenty of leftovers for the next night. I do believe it tastes less like tuna if you use the cream of cheddar. I'd like to try some celery cooked with the onion and maybe brocolli instead of corn.

Default Easy...made it up as I went along; steaks with mushroom soup and noodles

This was SOOOO easy. Steaks. Can of soup. 2 cans of water. Sprinkled with thyme. Easy!

Sunday morning before church (about 7 am) I threw in some sirloin steaks and cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup, couple cans of water, and set on high for 5 hrs. Then I boiled some whole wheat egg noodles and dumped them in for about 15 minutes on warm. Steamed some veggies...yum!!! oh and I sprinkled some dried thyme over the meat.

It wasn't quite salty enough, so I added some later.

So here's the "recipe" if anyone is interested:

4 sirloin steaks (about 1 inch thick) thawed.
1 can cream mushroom/roasted garlic soup
About 2 cups water (enough to cover meat in bottom of crock pot)
1 tsp dried thyme

Place meat in crock pot, spread soup over meat (could salt and pepper meat first if desired), sprinkle tsp of dried thyme; pour water over until meat is covered. (I know the crock pot recipe book usually says not too much water, but this worked for me, since I was guessing. It also recommends adding dried herbs at the end of the cooking time, but again, this worked great for me. Cook on high for 5 hrs. (Maybe 6, depending on how thick and big your steaks are).

Yummy!

Oh, another add-in....I'm thinking a small container of sour cream would have been nice to add in the last few minutes, or even just stir in while it's still warm. With the noodles, it would be kind of like a stroganoff.

I also made some easy glazed carrots with it....just boiled the baby carrots, drained off the water, added 1/4 stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, dash of cinnamon, about 1 tablespoon regular sugar. (Measurements are estimated, I didn't measure, just dumped stuff in.) But they turned out great! Not too sweet, but tasty. ALMOST as good as my mom's carrot souffle, which I couldn't find the recipe for.

We love carrot chowder at our house. It doesn't taste like cooked carrots (I hate cooked carrots) but it's full of carrots--very good for you! This recipe says to cook it on the stove but I cook it in my crock pot. 2-3 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, some grated chedder, oyster crackers, and Tabasco sauce. YUM!

1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 can vegetable soup
1 can tomato soup
1 can veg-all mixed vegetables
1 can hormel chili with beans

Mac and cheese

1 cup elbow macaroni (I use more like 1/2 - 2/3 a box)
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 dash pepper
1 1/4 cups milk
6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
bread

Cook macaroni in unsalted water until tender, but firm.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour and pepper. Add milk all at once. Stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Add cheese. Stir until melted. Stir in cooked macaroni and pour into casserole.

Cut the bread into cubes. Melt enough butter to coat the bread. Toss the bread in the butter. Sprinkle on top of mac and cheese. Top with paprika, if desired (I usually don't, but my family does).

Bake in a 350 oven for 25-30 minutes, or until it is bubbly and the bread is slightly browned.

Default Re: Casseroles and Crock-pot meals

Last year, when I discovered that I can't eat wheat, I tried substituting cooked rice for bread cubes in my stuffing for Thanksgiving, and it was really good! This is my attempt to adapt that and make it a complete meal, and do it in a crock pot. Everyone in my family likes it! Even my 9 year-old son who only likes about two meals that I make!

Stuffing Rice

Saute:
1 minced onion
1 stick butter, margarine or oil

Add:
chicken, diced (I used 1 chicken breast)
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Throw in the crockpot with:
1 1/2 cups brown rice
4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup water

Stir and cook on high 4-5 hours. It takes a LONG time for brown rice to cook in a crock pot.
