Quick Easy Meal Recipe

My "go to" supper when I really don't want any fuss is to heat a can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup, soup can of water and a can of creamed corn. It is very comforting and tasty. I had a couple of leftover cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster and found they were a delicious alternative to crackers with this soup.

I am looking for an old scalloped tomato recipe. I faintly remember fresh tomatoes and fresh bread being torn in pieces and nothing more. Many thanks for your help.

For Susie Indy. Really fast supper with soup, or fits easily into halftime for games.

Mother's Fastest Supper Sandwiches Recipe

Make the amount you need.
Commercial Hamburger buns
Chipped or chopped ham from the deli, sliced paper thin
Soft butter or margarine (opt.)
Hellman's mayonnaise, mustard, catsup, relish, chopped onion, pickles

Spread meat on foil in 1 layer, wrinkling it so it forms peaks & valleys; roil till peaks & edges brown.

Pile plenty of it on buttered rolls and add your favorite condiments.

Good anytime & great comfort food in winter with a bowl of soup, especially lentil, split pea or tomato.

Another sandwich, make it in the morning & it's ready when you are. Or if you have more time, serve with rigatoni & a salad.

Lennie's Sausages with Peppers and Onions Recipe

2 - 3 lb. Italian sausages, hot, mild, or mixed
3 large green bell peppers, cut in strips
2 large onions, cut in rings
32 oz. plain Ragu sauce
1/8 c. red wine
2 tsp. minced garlic

In a 4 qt. or larger pot mix everything but sausage. Cook these in a skillet at a boil for 10 minutes, piercing skins to release fat. Or broil on foil, no skillet to wash. Rinse, and add to pot. Bring to a boil, turn down to low simmer,& cook at least 3 hours,or till vegetables are tender. Serve on long rolls to 4 - 6. Easy to increase. Even better next day, and freezes well, too.

This is my favorite potato salad recipe. You can mash the potatoes if you like, and I usually stir mine until they are almost mashed. I like to add pickle relish to this, and we like mustard in ours, so I add however much we like to it. It makes a large amount so sometimes I cut the recipe in half. Arlene/Mo.

Sharon's Spam and Sauerkraut Foil Packets Recipe

1 can Spam
1 lb. sauerkraut, well drained
1 can prepared apple pie filling

Tear off 4 generous squares of HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil. Cut the Spam into 4 equal slices and place in the center of foil squares. Top each with a fourth of the kraut, then the pie filling. Bring up sides of foil to form well sealed packages. Place bombs on grill, Spam side down, over hot coals. Grill until Spam is browned and heated through. Can be eaten right from the foil. Adapts to oven cooking as well. Bake in oven about 30 minutes or heated through. Makes 4 servings.

Note: I tried this and found it works well baked in an oven and can be placed in a casserole dish without the aluminum foil. Just grease the casserole dish make stacks of spam, sauerkraut and apple pie filling into serving sized. Found it made four large servings. Think it could be done with 6 stacks instead of four.
