My sister got me hooked on Salibuy steaks is what she calls it.

You take hamburger and cook hamburgers up. Then you put it ina dish for baking and put two cans of beefy mushroom soup and a pack ofdry onion soup mix. Its pretty good. I like to makeit with mash pototoes cause you get gravy from thesoup. Not too expensive or hard to mess up.

Rice and Brown Gravy

Hamburger (chuck really) about 1.5 pounds

some onion bits to taste

garlic salt (just a light coating as you brown the meat)

all that in a skillet and brown the meat, drain it well. Add a can of French's Brown (Beef) Gravy and simmer

Pour over white or brown rice



It's YUMMY and kids seem to love it! VERY inexpensive

You can still do it stovetop. I make my soups on the stove, as I make way too much for my crock pot.

Although, I hear ya. It's just not the same as a crock pot......

I'm trying to think of kid friendly recipes but can't. Obviously nokids yet, but it's funny, earlier this evening I was thinking about howmy cooking would change once we had kids. :p (We're going to starttrying soonish, this spring :D )

our daughter looooves Shepherds Pie!!

And lastnight we made Shepherds PIe Parcels for something different.

Funny I see a post on food as our daughter made us home made pizza fortea tonight (she is 12 and in her first year of highschool and is doingcooking at school)

So guess who got to have a cook free night tonight????

Yup me!!!!!

And I get another on thursday night , that's our "take away food night"Thursday nights is late night shopping here and our salon stays openlate and it's much easier to have the night off from cooking that night.

Spag bol with a twist... easiest way is with thejar mix of tomato sauce, i.e. Dolmio, Ragu, etc. in with thequorn/mince, add a few shakes of Worchester Sauce and a dollop oftomato ketchup... it gives it a tangy, sweet taste and is really quickto make.Simmer for 20 mins whilst the spaghetti iscooking then serve with garlic baguette and parmesan cheese.You could add extra onion, mushrooms, etc if you like.

I love making things, I'm making Dan steak with bearnaise sauce, roastpotatoes, carrots and rosemary and broccolli tonight fordinner. I'll be sticking to Linda McCartney foodthough! LOL I might try some of your recipes!

I make soup on the stove too... big pot, lots of water, stock cubes,leek, potato, lentils, shredded carrot with salt and pepper totaste. You can tell I like to make things simply! :D

Dorito Chicken Bake

(This is a favorite over here!)

1 bag of Doritos, preferrably cheese flavored (but the salsa ones are nummy too)

Either 2 cans of canned chicken or about 3/4 pounds of boneless chicken chunks (cooked)

1 box of velveta cheese (The big box, but the Light Velveta tastes just the same =) )

2 jalepenos (optional)



Preheat oven to 350

Place the Doritos in a glass baking dish to cover the bottom.

Place the chicken chunks over the doritos trying to evenly space chicken.

Cut the velveta into chunks then place the chunks into a sauce pan tomelt. When the cheese is melted add the jalepenos if youchoose to use them. Pour the cheese evenly over the doritosand chicken.

Bake for about 15 minutes until the sides of the cheese are brown and bubbly.


Let me tell you... the second day it is even better!

Oh the doritos just reminded me of a recipe my little brother likes... chicken breast with cheese and crisps(chips to you:)).

Cook the chicken in the oven, not sure the temperature or that, justhow you'd normally cook it. :? Put some cheese ontop then crumble some crisps on top of that, put them under a mediumgrill until the cheese melts a bit. He loves it! Ithink breadcrumbs could be used in place of the crisps.

How do you make your shepherds pie? There are lots of ways to do it. Here's mine:

1.5 lb ground chuck browned and well....mooshed to make it little chunks LOL

a tad of onion to taste

garlic salt to taste

a tad of pepper

a can of drained peas (can subsitute with mixed veggies, corn, whatever)placed in the bottom of a square baking dish.

top with meat

add some mild cheddar cheese shreadded

use either your homemade mashed potatos or instant and top the meat (ikinda raise the edges to make a center depth in the potatos just a tadbit)

Sprinkle more cheddar cheese in the potatos and bake @ 350° until heated throughout and cheese melts.

Ok, here's another one. I'm sorry Idon't have exact measurements most of the time. My familygenerally cooks by memory and just pinch of this and that sorta thing.

PIZZA CASAROLE:

Boil pasta of choice (I really like penne rigatone for this) drain and put in a casarole dish.

brown a pound of ground chuck with a bit oforegano and garlicpowder, fennel and other pizza spices are optional. I alwayssay season to your taste.

a bit of chopped onion (I use that frozen kind, it seems to work best)

Drain the meat and add a can/jar of pizza sauce of your choice. I like Chef Boyarde I think it is lol.

add this to the pasta and mix in some mozzarella cheese.

Add anything you like at this point..... sausage is ok, pepperoni chopped up, mushrooms, etc.

Top with more shreadded mozzarella cheese and bake @ 350° until cheese melts.

Pizza burgers:

brown hamburger (I always go with what I need to feed the family..... 2pounds for about 4 adults is good), onion, garlic (kinda like therecipe for the casarole) and then add pizza sauce and any toppings youchoose like mushrooms, pepperoni, etc.

place hamburger buns (open faced) on a cookie sheet, top with hamburger mix on each bun.

Top with a slice of mozzarella cheese

bake @ 375° until cheese melts and buns are a bit crispy

(buns can be subsituted with open faced french bread, or hoagie buns which are really good too :) )
