Another element of our virtual Burns Supper.

They are really good slathered with apple sauce!

We had these while visiting some friends in Minneapolis and they were really good.

Jon & Er asked for a copy of Lori's cookies recipe so I thought I'd send it around more broadly in case any of the rest of you haven't enjoyed the scrumptiousness lately. 

Buns or Bread (Basic)

I've been making it into 24 buns most of the time, but it is a recipe for 2 loaves of bread.

During the first years of our married life, whenever we had supper guests I would make, these meatballs and serve them with steamed rice, vegetables and a salad.

Mix together:

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 cup quick oatmeal
1 egg
1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Form into small meatballs and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 325ºF for 30-45 minutes or until nicely browned.  Pour off excess fat.  Pour a little water on the cookie sheet and return to oven briefly. 


Combine and simmer for 5 minutes:

2 cups boiling water
1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix

Mix together, then add to hot soup mix:

I was almost out of flour so I tried this.  It is good for a change.

These muffins taste great with some jam or a bit of honey on them.  Rachel makes them for her roommates at college and says that they like them too.

Combine the following...

1 cup milk
1 cup raisins
1 cup All Bran
1 cup graham flour
1 cup dry oatmeal (old fashioned or quick)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup boiling water
2 Tbsp. dark molasses

Pour boiling water over raisins and soda.  Let soak then add rest of ingredients and mix well.  Pour into greased loaf pan.  Bake 1 hour at 350ºF.

Combine the following until crumbly:

1 3/4 cup dry oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. soda

Pack in a 9x13 pan, reserving 1 cup for the top.  Bake 15-20 minutes at 350ºF.  Combine the following and microwave to a boil, stirring frequently:

Soft Granola Bars

This recipe came from Ted's sister Grace.  She got it from a Canadian Living Magazine.  We usually double the recipe so that they can be put in a 9x13 pan.  Here in Winnipeg, a batch is usually baked and bagged so that they can be taken on road trips for volleyball or basketball to provide an energy boost when needed.

Combine the following until crumbly, then press in greased 9x13 pan and bake 10 minutes at 350ºF:

2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1 cup oatmeal

Combine the following and pour over hot crust.  Bake for 50 minutes more:

5 eggs
1 cup dark Karo syrup
3/4 cup sugar
dash of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup broken pecans
