Easy Recipes - Quick to Make
Easy recipes can be just as good as those recipes that call for a ton of ingredients and long preparation time.
To qualify as an easy recipe, it should be quick and easy to make. Every cook should have their share of quick recipes at their disposal for times you simply do not have a lot of time to cook.
I'll try to bring you as many of these recipes as I can, with the focus not only on being easy to cook, but also on taste.

In a 9 inch microwave-safe pie plate combine potatoes, onion and green pepper. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and cook on High 7 to 9 minutes until the potatoes are tender. In a seperate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Pour over the potatoes. Loosely cover with waxed paper; cook on High 4 to 6 minutes or until eggs are just set as desired, stirring twice.
Let stand 2 minutes.
Hamburger PieThis easy recipe is my grandson's favorite. It is so simple - I let him help me make it.
I'm not even going to list ingredients as it's so simple, I'll just tell you what to add.
In a casserole dish, mix 2 cans of tomato soup with a can of peas (drained). Mix thoroughly.
Brown a pound of hamburger, drain and mix it into the casserole.
Make mashed potatoes. I use 4 - 5 potatoes because I love mashed potatoes. Make them how you normally do but make a little on the wet side, as they are going to be baking. Scoop th epotatoes on top of the casserole and spread all over the top. If you like, sprinkle grated cheese on top.
Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes turn the oven to 450 degrees for 5 minutes. This will help crust the potatoes.
