Main Dishes / Casseroles

By JoAnn Anderson

1 cup Oatmeal

2 1/2 cups Fiber (stuffing, potato chips or cracker crumbs) (I use 1 1/2 sleeves of Ritz crushed or put through the food processor)

1 - 16 oz carton Cottage Cheese

2 pkgs Lipton Onion Soup Mix (1 for patties and 1 for gravy)

3 Eggs (egg substitute may be used)

1/2 cup Catsup


 Mix together (if too dry, add a small amount of sour cream) and fry in a small amount of oil until brown. Using other pkg of soup mix, make a thin gravy and pour over patties. Serve warm.

You may make these and use them as hamburger patties without the gravy. You can also form them into "meatballs" and use them in your spaghetti sauce or put them in a casserole dish and pour barbeque sauce over them and bake them for about 30 minutes in a 350° oven.

Peel and cut eggplant in cubes and cover with salted water. Place in refrigerator overnight.

Next day, drain eggplant and cook over low heat until tender. In a separate bowl, pour all milk over bread that has been torn into small pieces. Sauté celery, onion and bell pepper in margarine until tender. Combine eggplant, bread mixture, vegetables and eggs. Mix well. Add salt, pepper and sage to taste (I use about 2T of sage). Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from oven and cover with cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Stir until chesses are melted. Remove from heat. Pour a small amount of sauce in bottom of 9 x 13 casserole dish. Fill each flour tortilla with about 2T of crumble mixture and roll up, placing seam side down in casserole dish. Repeat until all are filled. There should be about 1/3 of the crumble mixture left. Add remaining sauce to crumble mixture and pour over enchiladas. Cover with remaining cheeses. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, until sauce is bubbly.

By JoAnn Anderson

2 cups uncooked Oatmeal

3 eggs (sub may be used)

2 ½ t Salt

1 vegetable bouillon cube

1 large Onion

McKay’s Chicken Style Seasoning

3-4 dashes of Celery Salt

½ cup finely ground Pecans


Mix together oatmeal, salt, onion and celery salt. Beat eggs. Dissolve bouillon cube in small amount of water and add to eggs and beat. Add McKay’s to egg mixtures. Add pecans, then oatmeal and mix all together and allow to set at least ½ hour.

Form into patties. It will be a loose mix and does not seem to want to stick together so handle gently. Add a small amount of oil to a skillet and heat on low to medium. Lay the patty in the oil and let brown slowly. Turn over and brown other side. Note:  If you bother the patties before turning over they tend to fall apart so only turn over once. Put into a casserole dish sprayed with Pam. Make a thin onion gravy and pour over patties and bake 30 minutes at 350° oven.
