    Super Supper
    (my favorite childhood recipe, I would request it every birthday!)

    5 1/4 oz. mashed potato flakes
    1 1/2 C sour cream
    1/2 C water
    1# ground beef
    2 (8 oz each) cans tomato sauce
    12 oz can corn, drained
    1/2 C water
    1 T minced onion
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/8 tsp oregano
    1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 350. In an ungreased 9x13 baking dish, blend dry potato flakes with sour cream and 1/2 C water (mixture will be crumbly). Pat firmly onto bottom of baking dish. In large skillet, brown ground beef. Stir in 1/2 C water and remaining ingredients except cheese. Spoon beef mixture over potato mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

    We serve it with a nice Caesar salad on the side.

    1 1/2 C buttermilk, divided
    3/4 C all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    2 1/2# boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
    1/4 C margarine or butter, melted
    10 3/4 oz can cream of chicken soup

    Pour 1/4 C buttermilk in a bowl; set aside. Combine flour, salt and pepper in another bowl. Dip chicken into buttermilk, then coat with flour mixture. Set aside. Pour margarine into an ungreased 13x9 baking pan; arrange chicken in pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn chicken over; bake an additional 15 minutes.

    We like to pair this with baby carrots and canned corn.

    Michelle’s Spaghetti Pie..

    ½ box (7oz) cooked spaghetti
    2 TBL butter
    1/3 Cup parmesan cheese
    2 eggs beaten
    1 ¼ ricotta cheese
    1/3 pound sweet sausage
    1/3 pound ground beef
    Chopped onion (& green peppers) to taste
    Jar of spaghetti sauce
    Mozzarella cheese

    To make the crust combine cooked spaghetti, butter, parmesan cheese and eggs then press into a greased casserole dish

    Spread 1 ¼ Cup ricotta cheese over the “crust” in the casserole dish

    Brown meats with the onion (& GP if you choose) when meat is no longer pink – drain on paper towels and return to pan with ½ jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (I used Prego) when heated thru spread onto of the ricotta cheese layer and top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.

    Bake 350 for 25 mins .. ENJOY

    Ok. This recipe is neither low calorie or low fat but it is soooooooooo worth it.


    3 cans Shoepeg corn or really sweet white corn (Shoepeg preferably)
    1 8oz box of cream cheese (Light is fine if you really want to use it)
    1/2 cup butter
    As much green chile as you want

    Melt butter and cream cheese in a large pot on medium high heat. When it is fairly smooth (no big chunks of cream cheese or butter), add in the corn and green chile. Stir frequently to make sure the corn is completely coated this will also ensure that the mixture doesn't burn. When the mixture is heated through, serve in bowls and enjoy!

    This dish goes perfectly with chicken, pork, and beef.
