Shredded Beef and Baked Onion Dip

This recipe has become a staple in our house and is frequently requested.  It actually started out as two separate recipes, but my hubby had the genius idea of combining the two which is absolutely delicious.  And, it is easy to make.

This can either be eaten separately or together, on a bun together with a little creamy horseradish is delicious

Ingredients

Shredded Beef
  • 3 lbs. chuck roast
  • 1 can golden mushroom soup
  • 1 can french onion soup
Baked Onion Dip
  • 1 cup chopped Vidalia onion
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise

Instructions

Shredded Beef
  1. Put the chuck roast in a crock pot. Put both cans of soup over the top and cook on low for at least 8 hours. At this point it should shred easily.
Baked Onion Dip
  1. Mix all ingredients together and put into a small casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
  2. We love to serve these on a nice fresh hard roll – put a scoop of beef, a scoop of onion dip, and eat. Yum!

Mom’s Lasagna

I know I am not the only one that grew up in a family that had to watch what they spent on everything, including food. I’m not embarrassed to say that it helped me realize how important it was to have easy recipes that didn’t break the bank. This has been a favorite in our family for years. I love a more ‘fancy’ lasagna too, but to be honest, this would be the one I would go to. I am not a big fan of meat, and neither is my oldest daughter so normally I make half of this with meat and half without.

Let me know if you try it and what you think.

The ingredients in this may not sound like much, but they really do taste good. When we were growing up we didn’t have a lot of money so my Mom couldn’t afford any fancy ingredients. Give this one a try and let me know what you think.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 medium onion, chopped garlic salt/powder
  • Lasagna noodles
  • 2 cans tomato soup
  • 2 cans cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 large can tomato paste
  • 12 ozs. mozzarella/cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Fry hamburger with onion and garlic salt/powder (a few shakes to taste). 
  2. Boil noodles.
  3. Mix together the soups and the tomato paste.
  4. Spray a 13×9 pan. 
  5. Layer noodles, hamburger, then sauce. 
  6. Repeat layers ending with sauce. 
  7. Top with cheese. 
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 
  9. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. 

Notes:

I sprinkle cheese between the layers. I also usually double this recipe and DO NOT cook the noodles. I get the flat lasagna noodles and make two pans and freeze one. It always turns out well.

Nana Pickles

 

Weird to buy pickles, cut the ends off and recreate pickles with a new brine. But, I promise you will really enjoy these.

My kids LIVE for these, and they really couldn’t be easier. Give them a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed:)
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 15 Min

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 small onion, diced or cut into rings
  • 1 quart of dill pickles (we usually get the baby dills)

Instructions

  1. Boil the sugar, vinegar and water for 1 minute. Let cool. Drain the quart of pickles. Cut the ends off of each pickle – I think this helps the flavor penetrate. Put them back into the jar, layering onions often. 
  2. Pour the liquid over the pickles, stick them in the fridge and let them sit for at least 24 hours. It may seem like a pain for pickles, but these are worth it.
