Ground Beef

All in the pot at once and you don't brown the ground beef. It's my new favorite one-pot-save-your-sanity-at-5:00 meal!

Vegetarian Chili

Janel got this recipe from a friend (Becky Lehman) and when we make chili, this is the recipe we usually fall back on. You can adlib with a few things (we've added corn and mushrooms, for example) and if you need a little protein, you can add ground meat easily.

We layered the soup ingredients into pint jars and put a round of fabric and a little fiber fill on the flat lid before screwing on the ring.  It was a nice gift for the girls in our girl’s club to give their moms.  The soup is pretty good too!

A friend made this for one of our annual soup and bun suppers.

Combine the following:

  • 1 lb. hamburger (browned slightly)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 14 cups water
  • 4 cups canned tomatoes
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes

Simmer for two hours.  During last half hour of cooking, add:

Crumble into 8 inch square pan:

1 lb. raw hamburger

Sprinkle or dab the following over top:

2 Tbsp. chopped onion
1 can (15-16 oz.) peas
1 can Cream of Chicken soup

Arrange on top:

1 lb. frozen Tater Tots

Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15-20 minutes at 350ºF.

Wrap in saran wrap and cook in microwave until leaves are easily flexed (about 12 minutes on high):

Remove from heat and add:

1 can condensed tomato soup
1 cup cooked rice

Take this mixture in tablespoons and put in cabbage leaves, fold and put in greased baking dish.  Combine the following and pour over the cabbage rolls:

We all enjoy having this as a main dish.  I usually double the recipe hoping for some leftovers.


This is the recipe we use for our pizza crust every Saturday night.  Dawn made it at Dordt once and when she had the pizza in the oven, opened the microwave and found the margarine.  The pizza tasted fine, so now we just leave out the margarine.

John and other Dutch immigrant families introduced me to this Indonesian rice classic.  It has become one of the Glenmount recipes people expect to get at buffets--partly because it is one of John’s favourites!

Brown and drain excess fat:

1 lb. hamburger
1 onion

Spread in the bottom of an 8 inch square pan.  Mix the following as directed and spread over the hamburger layer:

1 lb. lasagna noodles

Combine the following:

24 oz. cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 eggs (beaten)
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

In frying pan, brown together and add:

2 lb. hamburger
1 Tbsp. dried minced onion
1/2 tsp. dried minced garlic
1 can tomato paste (added after meat is brown)
2 cups canned tomatoes
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano

Brown the following:

1 lb. hamburger
1/2 cup onion (chopped)

Stir in the following and then put mixture into a greased casserole:

1 envelope dry Taco seasoning

Beat together and pour over the meat in the casserole:

1 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup Bisquick
3 eggs

Bake uncovered at 375ºF for 30 minutes.  Top with half of the following:

2 tomatoes
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Bake an additional 8-10 minutes, then top with:

I first made this when the recipe was given to me and I was asked to contribute it for a World Home Bible League supper.  Lloyd made this for the supper he prepared for our family as a requirement for his Boy Scout God and Family Award.

We like this as a side to the boxes of macaroni and cheese.  It is also good over rice.  Leftovers of rice, ground beef, and vegies added to Campbell’s Tomato Soup is one of Jonathan’s favourite soups.
