Cheesy Biscuits

cheesy biscuits

Another geek recipe for you. I haven’t posted anything for a while as I have been super preoccupied with other things. My mother was here for a visit a couple weeks ago and reminded me of a family favorite recipe and I thought I would share!

1 can Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 can good tunafish
1 tube of your favourite biscuits
1 cup milk

Combine soup, milk and tuna in pot over low heat.
Preheat oven according to biscuit directions on label.
Arrange biscuits in pan and spoon small amount of soup mixture over each
biscuit (just enough to cover the top).
Bake biscuits according to directions on label.
Remove biscuits and serve hot with generous amounts of soup mixture
spooned over the top.

** For a bit of added zing, put a little ground black pepper and a few
shots of your favourite hot sauce in the soup mixture while cooking.

Macaroni Salad

Ok, one more recipe. I just love this stuff.

* 1/2 lb of elbow noodles
* 1 cucumbers
* 1 small onion (red is pretty)
* 1 cup your favorite mayonnaise
* Salt / Pepper
* 3 or 4 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
* 3 or 4 Tbsp milk

Cook noodles, dice cucumber, dice small onion extra small, mix in bowl.
Mix together cup of mayo, 2 or 3 tablespoons of vinegar, salt, pepper and 2 or 3 tablespoons of milk to make the dressing. Taste it – you may need/want to add more vinegar. Should be thin enough to pour over macaroni mix. Mix it up and let it sit a while for best tastiness.

Note that I do not like eggs, so there are none in this salad, however, this macaroni salad recipe is particularly forgiving and you can easily add eggs, celery, bell peppers, etc. with a wonderful result.

This is making me hungry just reading it. MMMmmmmm.

Pepper Pot

Not to be outdone by Danns fantastic sounding fried wontons, I figured since it’s getting colder a little pepper pot would be tasty for those long days where geeking out is making you fiercely hungry.

* 1-2 lbs Ground Beef
* Couple cans cubed Potatoes
* 1 or 2 cans Carrots
* 2 quarts Beef Stock
* 1 Med Onion
* 1 bag Pot-pie noodle squares
* Black pepper
* Red Pepper Flakes
* Hot Sauce

Chop onion and put in large pot with ground beef. Add a couple shots of your favorite hot sauce and a quarter to half teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Brown ground beef with onions in large pot. When beef is cooked, add potatoes and carrots. Cover everything with beef stock until about 3 inches above solid ingredients. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to simmer and add appropriate amount of noodles. Cook until noodles are tender. Add ground black pepper to taste. Serve!

Mom’s Hamburger Soup

Boy, I wish I had a picture of this, or maybe smellavision or something to help share with. You’ll just have to trust me.

I have been looking for things to write about this month and, honestly, my topic list is getting pretty low. Then, I ran into Dann’s post about his cooking. Well, I love to cook too! I even did it professionally for a while. I am really into down-home comfort food stuff, and I thought I would share a recipe or two for those of you who are hungry fellows like me.

This is my Mother-in-law’s Hamburger soup recipe.

* 1 lb Ground Beef
* 1 6oz Can tomoto paste
* 1 14oz Can sliced carrots
* 1 14oz Can diced (or sliced) whole potatoes
* 1/2lb Farfalle noodles (bowties)

Brown ground beef in large pot with some worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
Add canned vegetables.
Add water to cover, plus about 4 inches. Bring to a boil.
Stir in tomato paste. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add noodles. Cook until noodles reach desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 5 or 6 very hearty servings.
