One of the requests about a recipe site was to have recipes that high school and college students could use. It seems a lot of children do not know how to cook and their mothers never taught them. Some of the recipes may seem simple and easy, but you need to remember that if you have never cooked before, they may seem a bit difficult. Also, this site will not have a large number of recipes.  

Main Dishes

Mix together all of the following ingredients at once.

1 lb hamburger
8 small squares saltine crackers, crumbled
1/4 cup ketchup (or BBQ sauce)
1/8 cup chopped green peppers
1 egg
1/8 cup chopped onion (or onion flakes)
Place this mixture in a 1.5 quart ovenware bowl. Top with ketchup or BBQ sauce. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
◦ Serves 5 - 6. 

Mexican Casserole
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 LB browned ground beef, drained
1 10 oz. can enchilada sauce
1 10 oz. can mushroom soup
10 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips of your choice (we prefer Silva's lightly salted)
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. (Opt. You may add onion.)
Drain the grease.
Add the enchilada sauce and the mushroom soup to the ground beef.
Reheat until it is simmering and mixed completely.
Prepare a 9X9 baking dish with a layer of chips and then cheese.
When the meat sauce is hot, add a layer of it over the cheese and chips. Then add another layer of chips, cheese and sauce.
Top with a few chips and some cheese.
Place in the oven until the cheese melts and the sauce is bubbling. Serve with more chips, cheese, and lettuce and tomatoes (and the hot salsa of your choice). (This may be frozen and/or reheated and is just as good.)
◦ Serves 6 - 8. 

Smothered Steak
You can use either round steak or sirloin steak whichever one you prefer.
Cut the steak into 4 inch squares.
Dip in flour until totally covered.
Place in a skillet with about 1 cup of oil and cook until done.
Drain off excess oil.
Pour 3 cans of cream of mushroom soup into a large pan. Add ½ cup of water for each can of soup. Mix together.
Put the sirloin steak back into the skillet and pour the mushroom soup over the steak.
Let simmer for 1 ½ hours at a low temperature.
If you want you can place the sirloin steak in a glass pan and let simmer in the oven for 2 hours.
Be sure you watch and make sure the soup does not simmer away and the steak burns.
The soup seems to turn into a brown gravy.
◦ Serves 6 to 8, depending on how much steak you buy. 

Sour Cream Tortilla Casserole

2 tablespoons corn oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can(16 oz) tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped

Top with one-third of remaining sauce, one-third of cheese.
Top with another layer of tortilla chips, half remaining sauce, half cheese.
Top that with another layer of chips and final layering of sauce and cheese.

Swiss Steak
1 lb round steak
1 16-oz can Stewed tomatoes
1/4 cup green peppers
1/4 cup diced onion
1 stick diced celery
2 tsp. chili powder
1 clove of garlic (or 1 tsp. garlic powder)
1/2 tsp sugar
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
(Add water to cover 3/4 of steak if needed)
Roll the round steak in flour, salt & pepper.

Brown on both sides.

Veal Paprika (Relax, you don't have to use veal!)
1 stick of margarine (1/2 cup)
2 cloves of garlic (ground up) or 1 tsp. of garlic salt
1 lb. of either round steak or sirloin steak or veal (whichever is the cheapest)
1 8-oz. carton of sour cream
1 -2 TBS of Paprika (We prefer the 2, but if that is too strong for you, lessen the amount.)
• In a large skillet, melt the margarine over medium heat.
When it is totally melted, sprinkle in the garlic.
Let that simmer for about 1 minute.
While this is melting and cooking, cut the meat into 1" squares.
After the garlic is finished, add the meat chunks and allow the pieces to brown on both sides (about 2 min. per side).
Now add a 1/2 cup of water and let it simmer for about 30 min. (this is to tenderize the meat and cook in the flavoring).
Be sure to check ever so often so there is always moisture in the pan.
You do not want the meat to get crusty!
You can always add butter or water depending on your preference.
Now add the sour cream and the Paprika.
Stir with a wooden spoon till well mixed.
Cover and let simmer till it bubbles.
Serve immediately with baked potatoes. (You can freeze the leftovers or refrigerate them.
It is just as good when it is warmed up again!
◦ Serves 4 - 5. 

French Toast
In a bowl, stir up 1 egg per every 2 pieces of toast.
Add 2 TBS milk and 1 tsp vanilla.
Lay a piece of bread in the mixture, turn it over and coat the other side, then place on a preheated skillet (when you drop a tiny bit of water on the skillet, it will jump around when it is ready to cook on).
Cook for about 1 min. to have the egg well cooked, then flip it over and cook on the other side for about the same amount of time.
Remove and eat with your favorite topping (powdered sugar, butter, jelly, fruit, etc.).

Place the cut-up potatoes in a pan that can hold all the potatoes and have about 1 inch of water over their top.

Bring to a boil and continue boiling until the potatoes are tender and fall apart when a fork is stuck in them.
(If you want them to finish in about 1/2 hour, dice them into 1 inch pieces before boiling.)

Beat them with a hand mixer or potato masher.

Stir until butter is melted and add milk until it is the consistency you prefer.

There are a large number of things that go great will eggs or there are recipes that the main ingredient is eggs.  Here is one I hope you will enjoy.
Deviled Eggs
Boil whatever number of eggs you want, this depends on how many guests you will have.
Place in a pan and boil for 10 minutes or so.
After boiling, pour half the water off and pour cold water from the facet over the eggs.
Drain all the water off and pour more cold water over the eggs and let it sit for 20 minutes.
Drain the water off, crack & peal the eggs and place eggs in a large bowl.(Throw shells away or use in an art project!)
Cut the eggs in half, length-wise.
With a small spoon extract the yoke and place in a bowl.
In the bowl with the egg yolks, add 1 teaspoon of mustard and 1 teaspoon of Miracle Whip Salad Dressing and 1 teaspoon of white vinegar.
Stir all together and take a taste.
If you want it to have more of a mustard taste, add more mustard.
The same thing holds true for the Miracle Whip Salad Dressing and the white vinegar.
After mixing all together the texture should be similar to mashed potatoes.
With a small spoon or fork, fill the whites of the eggs with the yolks mixture.
Place the filled egg whites in a bowl or plate and sprinkle Paprika over the eggs.
Cool in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
I know its elementary but 12 eggs will serve 24 people.
