SHOPPING LIST:

Copy & paste into a word document for a ready made shopping list.

  • 1 to 1  1/4 pounds  lean ground beef or ground Turkey or a combination of the two
  • 3 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese-from the green can is OK
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 can condensed cream of mushrooms
  • 2 cups of shredded hash brown potatoes-can use frozen potatoe o’brien or country 
  • 1 cup Frenches Fried Onions- For topping- At Aldi’s I get a cheddar cheese flavor that is delish!
  • 1 tablespoon dry red wine, optional
  • PANTRY

    Make a list of things that you use to cook with frequently and make them pantry items

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder-not salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder-not salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten

  • RECIPE SUGGESTIONS:
    For the meat use either all ground chuck which has a better beefier flavor or ground turkey.
    Frozen ground turkey is usually 1/2 the cost per pound as fresh and it works just as well
    For a change mix beef with Turkey for a lower cholesterol content and to make the meal a little more inexpensive
    POTATOES:
    I use frozen Ore Ida hash browns, you can use the Ore Ida potato chunks or O Brien Potatoes
    You can use the shredded potatoes found in the deli/dairy section.
    SPINACH:
    A 10 ounce frozen box works just fine here.
    Fresh spinach can be used without cooking, just chop fresh and put it into the meat mixture.
    MUSHROOMS:
    Fresh mushrooms are the best and most flavorful due to a form of natural occuring monosodium glutamate.
    a 4 ounce can of mushrooms is a great substitution.
    PARMESAN CHEESE:
    You can use the green can!
    Substitute grated romano, asiago or your favorite cheddar cheese.
    BROTH:
    Veggie broth or chicken broth can be used as well as a boullion cube with water.

    Orange Roughy

    I am an absolute HUGE fan of Orange Roughy.

    Cooking lesson: Orange Roughy is a mild, semi firm flesh fish that is flash frozen on the boat. What does that mean for you? Buy it at your fav. mega mart in bags and you will have “fresh” roughy. It means that it was frozen fresh and not gostled from boat to processor to store. It went from the sea to the processor to frozen state in a matter of a few hours.

    It can be successfully sauted, fried, baked, broiled or poached. It can be delicate, not as delicate as flounder, but it’s not a fish that can be roughed up-no pun intended!

    HINT: Do not buy “thawed” roughy at your market unless they can assure you it is indeed “fresh”-never frozen. most likely it has been frozen, thawed and displayed for you in their deli case. IF you must buy that fish-which I advise against, you will need to use it immediately…

    Let’s get cookin! This is a recipe for 2 servings.
