Default Favorite Recipes!

I guess it's time to "crack open the cooking book" & share some of my own favorite meals!

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's!


So, here's my favortive meal...

~Procupine Meatballs~

4Pds of lean hamburger meat (or more if you prefer)

2C of white (long grain) rice

1/2 Table spoon of Lawry's season salt

1/2 Table spoon of Oregon~need to "crush" in hands so it's fine.

*1/2 Table spoon of garlic salt

1/2 Table spoon of garlic powder.

*Few dashes of pepper

3 Large eggs

1 Large can of Cream Of Mushroom soup. (I prefer Campbell's)

Mix~All (above) ingredients together, making sure it's not to "dry" of a mix. The mixuture should not "soft" either. If need be, add 1 to 2 eggs in addtion to the above eggs. Next, make them into medium size balls. While you're making the meatballs, preheat (low to medium) non~stick pan. Then, slowly add the meatballs to the preheated pan. Cook meatballs until completely non~pink inside. After they are completely cooked, drain off excess grease. Then after grease has been drained, you add the cream of mushroom soup to the meatballs. Do not throw out can that you used, as you'll need to use that to put water into the meatballs & soup mix. I usally use 2 can fulls of water. When you are done with adding water to the meatballs, then you start to mix it all. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low setting. Let mixture simmer for 20~25 minutes, stiring occasionally. Then serve the meatballs, with the cream of mushroom soup, on a bed of rice. If you prefer noodles, that will be suitable as well.

*Those are optional ingredients that can be added to this.

The final dish should look like this....

~Macaroni & Cheese~
(a bit of homemade)

2c Macaroni

12oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese

2 TB Margine

2 TB Flour

1c Milk

Cook macaroni per cooking instructions on box & drain. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the macaroni aside (after cooking/draining). Take the Sharp cheese & cut them into cubes. After cutting them into cubes, slowly heat up the milk in a sauce pan. After milk's come to a slow boil, then take the cheese cubes & add them to the milk. Keep frequently stiring, until cheese is completely melted into what looks like a sauce. Take a different sauce pan & melt down butter (slowly). After butter has been melted, slowly add the flour to it. Keep mixing until flour & butter make a paste. Slowly add the paste mixture of butter & flour into the melted down milk & cheese mixture. After that, then place the macaroni noodles in a glass bake dish. Slowly add the heated milk, cheese, flour, & margine mix to the macaroni. Slowly mix the cheese with the macaroni in the bake dish. Cook until top's lightly brown. Remove from oven & enjoy.

Toad in the hole YUMMMMMM

Ingredients
Serves: 4
8 pork sausages
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
225g (8 oz) plain flour
4 eggs
250ml (8 fl oz) milk
salt and pepper to taste

Method
Prep:10min › Cook:30min › Ready in:40min

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C /gas mark 6.

Pour the oil into the bottom of a baking dish, and arrange the sausages over it in a single layer.
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs and half of the milk until smooth. Gradually mix in the rest of the milk until a smooth batter is achieved.
Season with salt and pepper.
Remove the sausages from the oven, and ladle the batter over them until the sausages are 3/4 covered.
Return to the oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the centre is risen and browned.
Don't worry if the underside seems slightly soft, as this is normal.
