This recipe can be changed in so many ways. But I'll give you the original.

6 Layer Dinner

Peel and slice two potatoes
Layer in bottom of casserole.
Put a can of peas on top,
Salt and pepper to taste
Layer onion and garlic
Add one can of tomato sauce and 1/2 can of water
Crumble raw hamburger on top
Add another can of tomato sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour covered. Then uncover and Cook 30 minutes longer.

Variations.
You can use:
Pasta or rice instead of potatoes
Corn or carrots instead of peas
Onion and garlic are opt. You can use mushroom too
If you don't have two cans of tomato sauce you can use marinara sauce
If you don't like hamburger you can use any other protein.

And: I top the casserole with crushed potato chips.

( When you get to the bottom of the bag of chips, save the crumbs for casseroles.)

Cut steak into serving size pieces.
Dredge meat in mixture of flour, salt and pepper.

Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin Roast from www.recipezaar.com
“Submitted by JoanW – JOANW1”

I got this recipe from another 'recipe' website on Anyone Over 70s team. It is excellent. Try it out for a special occasion.



If you like lots of gravy then double the whole cranberry sauce and French dressing, for a larger roast adjust the cooking time---if you don not have a crock pot this may be made in a covered Dutch oven in a 225^ oven.

SERVES 6

1 (3-3 1/2 lb) pork loin roast
5 T oil, divided (or use as much needed)
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Whole garlic cloves (optional)
1/3 c French dressing
1 T cornstarch
1 (16 0z) can whole berry cranberry sauce

1. Using a strainer, separate the dried onions from the dry powder; place the dry onions in a small bowl.
2. Heat about 3 T oil in a skillet over med. heat.
3. Rub the roast all over with 2 T oil, then season the pork loin with the onion soup powder, black pepper and garlic powder.
4. Brown the roast on all sides in hot oil then allow to cool slightly for essy handling if stuffing with the garlic cloves.
5. Make small slits all over the roast, then stuff with garlic cloves. (this is optional)
6. Place roast in slow cooker.
7. In a bowl whisk the French dressing with the cornstarch until smooth then add the cranberry sauce and dried onions; mix until combined.
8. Pour the mixture over and around the pork.
9. Cover and cook on HIGH heat for 4 hours or on LOOW heat for 7-8 hurs or until the pork reaches internal temperature of 160 ^F.

I used the garlic cloves in my roast and the gravy was delicious served over the sliced pork.

I love it. Every time I try a new recipe DH says "I like the regular one." So I've stopped trying new ones.

Meat Pizza

“Submitted by JoanW – JOANW1”

Another recipe someone gave me for those who don't eat a lot of bread, potatoes, etc.:


Flatten hamburger on a pan and bake it until it's done. Remove from oven and drain fat off. Add sautéed veggies to your taste, and sprinkle a little cheese on top. Put it back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

Sounds good.

SUBMITTED BY JoanW - JOANW1

Here is one of 4 recipes from my luncheon yesterday. Note that they are intended to serve 60-70 people. I was going to cut the ingredients down, but was afraid I would make a mistake. If you want to serve 6 or 8 people you will have to make the changes. Also see Hash Brown Casserole, Frozen Fruit Salad. and Cinnamon Popcorn

Ham Loaves (or Balls)

4 lbs. each ground ham, beef, and pork
6 eggs
pepper to taste
4 cups graham crackers
2 cups Ritz crackers
4 c milk

SAUCE
2 (10 oz.) cans tomato soup
1 cup vinegar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp dry mustard

Ham Loaf/Balls - Mix all ingredients and form into balls. An ice-cream scoop works well to form 2-3 inch balls. Place in a 20x12 inch pan, sprayed with Pam.
SAUCE: Combine all ingredients and pour over ham loaves/balls. Bake at 325 degree oven for one hour (Allow longer baking time if you have more than one pan in the oven at one time.) Serves 60-70. Roasters work well with 3 layers of ham loaves/balls. Plan on 1-1/2 to 2 hours cooking time.

This is a Spark People recipe that I love. It says it serves 6 but I think I could get 8 out of it. Anyway, the allotment for 6 is very ample, so you don't go away hungry. Also note: that casseroles can be very low in calories and fat because you control what you put in there. You can serve it over rice, but you don't have to as there are potatoes in the recipe.
