UF2.0 Cook Book ~ Planning meals on a tight budget! Post your Recipe!

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:41 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ive seen a lot of good recipes posted in the "whats for dinner" thread in both the old and new UFF.

I think this would be a great resource for those looking for new ideas for meals on the cheap.

Please try and limit the discussions to only recipes etc and use the "Whats for dinner" thread for more generalized food chat comments

Happy sharing!! And good eating!

This is a recipe I make when i can get items on sale - chicken breasts and cheese.

fresh chicken breasts - diced
large container of light cream
diced tomatoes - canned
scallions - sliced - I use the entire scallion except for the roots at the bottom of the bulb
frozen peas - 1 box
fresh mushrooms - sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth
parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

saute mushrooms and scallions in butter - add diced chicken and saute til chicken is done. Add chicken broth - bring to boil - add frozen peas and canned tomatoes (I add the juice as well) , lower heat and cook about 5 minutes. add cream and bring just to boil. serve over noodles, top with healthy amount of parmesan cheese and black pepper.

mrmarti can you add your meatball recipe here I loved it.

I make these meatballs all time - never use pork or veal, just plain old hamburg - mix it with egg, breadcrumbs, dried parsley (or fresh if you have it), garlic power, minced onion (or onion powder), a little parmesan cheese if I have it, salt and pepper, I throw in a little cayene pepper as well. Form the meatballs, brown in oil then add to sauce and simmer til meatballs are done. I never measure - just eyeball everything.

I suggest everyone try these.

I try to eat fish at least once a week. This is a tasty dish that works well with cod also. Smile

Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

Ingredients

* 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
* 1/4 cup butter, softened
* 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
* 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
* 2 pounds tilapia fillets

Directions

1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese,
butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper,
onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared
pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the
fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets
from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top
side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish
flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

My kids really like this fried chicken:

Chicken parts - breasts, thighs, drumsticks
Adobo seasoning
Yellow mustard
Crisco
Flour (seasoned with salt and pepper - I add a little cayene pepper as well)
Hot sauce - optional


Sprinkle Adobo all over chicken
Then put mustard in a big bowl, add chicken and get mustard all over the chicken - let sit in mustard about 30 minutes.
Take mustard coated chicken (don't remove mustard) and roll in seasoned flour until completely coated.
Fry several pieces at a time in Crisco - Use a lid on the pan - tilted so that steam escapes - fry until done.

Sprinkle some hot sauce on done chicken and enjoy.

Today I was looking up hamburger recipes and came across this Paula Deen recipe. It intrigues me and I plan to try it in the near future.



Ingredients
2 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoon grated onion

3 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley leaves

1 1/2 lb ground beef

3   eggs

6   slices bacon, cooked 


3  glazed donuts sliced in half and toasted in frying pan or 3 english muffins or rolls
salt, pepper and garlic powder to season

Directions

Mix the ground beef, chopped parsley and grated onion together in a large mixing bowl. Season liberally, with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Form 3 hamburger patties. 
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. 
Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside. 
While burgers are cooking, heat a non-stick pan, over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Crack 3 eggs into the pan. Cook until the yolks are just set and still slightly runny and remove. 
Place burger patties on one half of glazed donut.. Top each burger with 2 pieces of bacon and a fried egg. Top with donut

This recipe is one my aunt used to make. It's called BEER BREAD. If you not a baker...this is pretty much fool proof. Just remember self rising flour and NOT regular all purpose flour.

1 can warm beer (not hot...just room temp.)
3 cups of self rising flour
5 tablespoons sugar
1 egg slightly beaten

Mix first three ingredients and place in a buttered bread pan. Brush top of bread with the slightly beaten egg.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hr.

This is my last recipe post for today. This one isn't quite as chep as the others but it turns out great and feeds a lot of peeps and can be frozen too.

SODA POP POUND CAKE:
■3 sticks Butter
■3 cups Sugar
■5 whole Eggs
■1 teaspoon Butter Flavoring
■2 teaspoons Lemon Flavoring
■3 cups All-purpose Flour
■1 cup Sprite, 7-UP, Or Sierra Mist

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream butter. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Add butter and lemon extracts and mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add soft drink, then mix together until combined. Scrape sides of bowl, then mix briefly.

Pour into a greased Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until the cake is no longer jiggly.
This is great with fresh berries but cheaper with frozen ones. You can also skip the butter flavoring if you cannot find it. I get McCormick brand.

Searched for a new baked macaroni and cheese recipe and found this, which I made and just finished eating. My son gave me a

http://startcooking.com/blog/336/Baked-Macaroni-and-Cheese

It came out so good - it's a keeper for sure. Never added egg to mac & cheese, but it did make a difference.

I take bread crumbs or sometimes crackers and crumble them up and add to it. Then bake it in oven for a lil while to get it crispy on top.

Its pretty good actually, and I may have that for dinner seeing as I bough one yesterday. Smile

I take the mac and cheese to a new level with:

Chopped or cubed ham, chopped onion and a little green pepper. Serve with garlic toast or biscuits. Quick and easy and cheap.

Walmart sells the bags of chopped or cubed ham in the meat & poultry section, they are about 2.50 a bag. I just mix the bag with the mac and cheese and voila, dinner is ready.
