Porcupine Meatballs

Porcupine Meatballs are a nice variation of regular meatballs.  The original recipe calls for tomato juice poured over, but we prefer cream of chicken soup.  This recipe comes from the new Mennonite Cookbook.  Enjoy!

PORCUPINE MEATBALLS

1 lb hamburger
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 medium onion
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raw rice

1 1/2 cups tomato juice
2 teaspoons sugar
Mix and pour over before baking.  OR...
1 can cream of chicken soup with 1 can milk mixed together poured over top.
Bake 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.

Ham, Mac, and Cheese Soup

 This is a new recipe that we have never tried before.  We tasted it and......it tastes like mac and cheese with ham in it!  (Sorry, I don't remember which blog I got it from.)

HAM, MAC & CHEESE SOUP

1 1/2 cups of uncooked small macaroni shells
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour (I rounded mine)
1 teaspoon dijon style mustard ( I used honey mustard)
1 (14oz) can chicken broth
1 1/2 cups half and half (I used regular milk)
1/2 lb sliced american cheese coarsely chopped
1 cup finely diced ham
salt and pepper if desired

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and set aside.

Melt butter and stir in flour and mustard.  Add broth and milk.  Cook til slightly thickened.
Stir in cheese til melted.  Stir in macaroni and ham.  Heat thoroughly and add salt and pepper to taste.  May also use sliced hot dogs instead of ham.


Hamburger Mashed Potato Casserole

This recipe came from my sister-in-law.  It is quite simple and tasty.  My other sister says it is like Shepherd's Pie without the veggies on the bottom.  That suits my family just fine.  We prefer our veggies on the side, especially peas.

HAMBURGER MASHED POTATO CASSEROLE

2 lbs hamburger, browned and drained
6 cups mashed potatoes with a little butter and milk added to make them fluffy
2 cans cream of chicken soup

Spread burger in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Top with cream of chicken soup.  Evenly spread mashed potatoes over the soup and bake 20 min at 350 degrees.  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This should freeze very well.

(Sorry, no picture.)
