Potato Salad Recipe for 60

15 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
6 cups mayonnaise
1-1/2 cups yellow mustard
3 cups chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
24 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
9 dill or sweet pickles, chopped
4 Tablespoons pickle juice - optional

Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain, and place in a serving bowl.

Stir the onion, salt and pepper into the potatoes while they are still hot. This allows the potatoes to absorb the flavor. Add the mayonnaise, mustard and pickle juice to the salad, and mix well. Gently stir in the eggs and dill pickles. Robbie IN Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Betty Crocker Free Samples Just for You 

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Wonderful newsletter today. I have a question for Myron Drinkwater - I've never heard of or used Steak Dust. How do you use it on steak - before or after cooking? And now a question for all our Nancylanders - I have leftover raw cauliflower. How do I incorporate this into a soup? I plan on putting it in the blender to puree it when the soup is done but haven't a clue what goes in the soup to begin with.

Here are some crab cake recipes for Myron who requested them in the Feb 20th Newsletter. The first three come from this Newsletter and I don't remember where the other two came from. Hope this is what Myron was looking for.

Crab Cakes Recipe
Submitted by Jan in DE in All Easy Cooking Newsletter

1 lb. back fin crab meat (picked over to remover any shells)
1-1/2 tsp finely crushed saltine crackers (I usually have to add much more and do them in the mini processor with the fresh parsley)
1 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped fine
1 whole egg
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
Dash of Tabasco
Dry mustard to taste
Salt and white pepper

Sprinkle cracker crumbs and parsley over crabmeat and toss lightly so as to not mush up the crab. In another bowl, combine egg, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, mustard and Tabasco and beat well (I do this in the mini processor too). Pour over crabmeat mixture and toss lightly. Form into cakes and brown very lightly. Note: There are no specific measurements for the mustard, Tabasco, salt and white pepper. Start with just a dash and then taste, adding more if needed.

Nancy B's Crab Cakes Recipe

1 pound lump crab meat (check over carefully for shells)
3 or 4 tablespoons diced onion
3 Tablespoons diced red bell pepper
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 egg
3 or 4 Tablespoons plain bread crumbs
1 or 2 dashes cayenne pepper or fresh ground black pepper
Optional: chopped fresh garlic
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

Mix all ingredients by hand. Do not over blend and try not to break apart the crabmeat too much. Mixture will be very wet and barely holding together. Mixture will make 4 large cakes or 6 smaller ones. Place a 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs in a plate. Grab a handful of crab mixture and gently pat together. Gently lay the cake onto the breadcrumbs and flip onto the other side to coat. Put cakes into the refrigerator for about an hour to firm up. Coat a frying pan with oil. Sauté the crab cakes for 4 to 5 minutes on one side. Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes till browned. Enjoy as a sandwich (place on a toasted poppy seed bun or potato roll) with lettuce and tartar sauce and coleslaw on the side. They're great all by themselves too.

Slow Cooker Cube Steaks with Gravy Recipe

1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
6 (about 4 oz. each) beef cube steaks (I usually buy the family pack of cube steak, and cut them in half if the slices are really big-I don't pay attention to the weight of the package, there's always plenty of gravy)
1 Tbsp. canola oil
3 c. water, divided
1 envelope brown gravy mix (I use the reduced sodium brown gravy mix)
1 envelope mushroom gravy mix
1 envelope onion gravy mix
Hot mashed potatoes, cooked rice or cooked noodles

Spray the inside of a 3-5 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place the sliced onions in the slow cooker.

Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Add steaks, a few at a time; shake until completely coated.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the steaks, a few at a time, and cook until lightly browned on each side. Place the browned steaks on top of the onions in the slow cooker. Pour 2 c. water over all. Cover; cook on Low for 8 hours or until meat is tender.

In a bowl, whisk together the 3 gravy mixes with remaining 1 c. water. Add to slow cooker; cover and cook on Low for 30 minutes longer.

Serve over mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. 6 servings.
This is comfort food at its best !!!

10 small red potatoes, thinly sliced
10 baby carrots, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 Vidalia onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 (14 ounce) jar vodka marinara sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish. In a medium bowl, toss together the carrots, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and spinach. In a separate bowl, blend together the Gouda cheese, mozzarella cheese, and sharp Cheddar cheese. Set aside.

Place two layers of sliced potatoes in the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Season the potatoes with a little salt and pepper. Top with a layer of the spinach mixture, and pour about 1/2 cup of sauce over all. Sprinkle with some of the cheese blend. Repeat layering with remaining potatoes, vegetables, sauce and cheese, ending with cheese on the top. Bake covered for 35 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the lid, and bake for 10 more minutes until the top is browned.

In the past several days there were recipes for tempura. This is the batter recipe we use for vegetables. It will work with vegetables, shrimp and fish. It is very good.

Linda's Batter for Vegetables Recipe

1 c. water
1/4 c. oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. flour
1 egg

Beat all ingredients by hand until well blended. Prepare vegetables and dip into batter. Fry in oil preheated to 375° until brown, salt lightly. If vegetables are coated with flour before dipping in batter, the batter will stay on better when frying. This batter can be used to coat whole okra, sliced onions, squash, eggplant and green tomatoes.
