Simple Recipes - Quick, Easy, Cheap
Simple recipes are always good to have on hand when you have little time to cook. However, just because a recipe is simple does not mean you won't want to cook it regularly.
I'm always testing new recipes that can be made quickly. You may find some of these on other pages of our site, but this will give you a page you can bookmark and find quickly when you need to turn a simple recipe into a delicious meal.
1 - 2 pounds of hamburger
a regular size can of peas
2 cans of tomato soup
preheat oven to 400 degrees
You need to begin by making mashed potatoes and browning the hamburger. Make the potatoes on the runny side.
Here's a tip. Rather than browning the hamburger, boil it for just a couple minutes and drain. This eliminates the grease from the mixture and works real well.
In a greased casserole dish, mix the hamburger with the tomato soup and the can of peas (drained). Spread the potatoes evenly on top of the mixture and place in the oven for about 20 minutes, forming a nice crust.
As a nice option, spread grated cheese over the top of the potatoes before you place in the oven.
Macaroni & Cheese
I know. This is a simple recipe right out of the box. But we are going to add a few touches to make this a delicious dinner in itself.
1 - 2 boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
1 pound of bacon - slices cut into fourths
4 - 6 slices Velveeta Cheese
preheat oven to 350 degrees
Make your macaroni and cheese as per the instructions, but double the amount of milk you add.
Fry the bacon to your desired crispness and drain.
In a casserole dish, mix the macaroni & cheese with the bacon and spread evenly. On top of the mixture, place slices of Velveeta cheese. Place in the oven and bake until the cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
