Vivien's Boiled Dinner Recipe

My mother-in-law was from northern Minnesota and her parents from Canada. When she made a “boiled dinner” it looked something like a stew but the pieces were big including a big chunk of meat. She put the chunk of meat, ham, corned beef, etc, into a pot, added water and cooked the meat until it was almost done. She included the bone when she used ham and if the ham was very salty ham, she changed the first boil water to get rid of some of the salt. Then she added whole potatoes or cut in half large potatoes, carrots in big chunks and cooked until almost fork tender. Then she added cabbage wedges and cooked them until crisp tender. Depending on the saltiness of the meat, she added salt and pepper to taste. I’ve done the same thing with success but can’t give a definite recipe. If my dad was over for dinner, I added turnips.

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

1 lb 93% lean ground beef;
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt;
1 tsp olive oil;
1/2 large onion, chopped;
3 cloves garlic, minced;
1 (28 oz can) crushed tomatoes;
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil;
black pepper, to taste;
3 medium (8 ounces each) zucchini, sliced 1/8″ thick;
1 1/2 cups part-skim ricotta;
1/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano;
1 large egg;
16 oz (4 cups) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese;

In a medium sauce pan, brown meat and season with salt. When cooked drain in colander to remove any fat. Add olive oil to the pan and saute garlic and onions about 2 minutes. Return the meat to the pan, add tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Simmer on low for at least 30-40minutes, covered. Do not add extra water, the sauce should be thick. Meanwhile, slice zucchini into 1/8″ thick slices, add lightly salt and set aside or 10 minutes. Zucchini has a lot of water when cooked, salting it takes out a lot of moisture. After 10 minutes, blot excess moisture with a paper towel. Preheat a gas grill to medium high, and grill 2 to 3 minutes per side, until slightly browned. Place on paper towels to soak any excess moisture. Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium bowl mix ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese and egg. Stir well. In a 9×12 casserole spread 1/2 cup of sauce on the bottom and layer the zucchini to cover. Spread 1/2 cup of the ricotta cheese mixture, then top with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and repeat the process until all your ingredients are used up. The last layer top with remaining zucchini and sauce, cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover the foil and bake 20 minutes (to dry up the sauce) then place the remaining 1 cup mozzarella and bake until melted, 10 minutes. Let stand about 5 – 10 minutes before serving.

You were asking about a 'Boiled Dinner Recipe' I don't know if this might be what you are meaning or not but here in the USA this is what I call a 'Boiled Dinner'

Carol's Boiled Dinner Recipe

1 Cottage Ham...May also be called a Cottage Butt... They are small hams 2-3 pounds all depends - Put in a large pot on stove...

I add as many potatoes cut up as needed for however many people you are serving (I maybe quarter the potato or just cut in half - suit yourself)

Carrots the same - I cut them in rather large pieces

I medium head of cabbage cut in wedges .

Water just to cover all

Simmer til Potatoes, Carrots, Cabbage are tender .... about 55 min. to 1 hour on simmer.

Brown Sugar Bacon Recipe

10 slices thick-cut bacon
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground fennel seeds

Preheat oven to 400. Cover a baking sheet with foil. Set a rack over foil. Line up the bacon slices side by side on the rack (it's okay if they touch).

In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, pepper and fennel and sprinkle mixture evenly over the bacon.

Bake in center of the oven until most of the fat has rendered out and the bacon is crisp - 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the bacon to cool to room temperature so that the sugar can harden.

Note: Pepper really adds fire to the bacon so you might want to use less or maybe even leave it off.

Good morning dear Nancy,
News letter looks great today - love all the Amish recipes. Been busy working at our State Fair and dodging the thunderstorms lol. Luckily my neighborhood had no serious damage from the storm the other night. Waiting for my garden to get ready so I can can for the winter. Planted sugar pumpkins(to be used only for pies etc) so I'm going to try my hand at canning pumpkin this year. It's nice to be on vacation from my school duties but it's been a busy summer so far - graduations-baptisms-weddings-family reunions just to name a few lol. Have a great day all.

I'm making this recipe this morning to take to a family reunion, its a recipe I've made many times, and is good when you need a recipe to help feed a crowd. We have several yellow squash in our garden right now, and that is what I used today, but zucchini works well, too. If there are any leftovers, it freezes well.

Squash Casserole Recipe

6 cups sliced (or diced) squash
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 can Cream of Chicken (or Mushroom) soup

1/2 cup melted butter

Cook squash and onion in salted boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain.
