Day 10 – Share your favorite recipe (or two)
I don’t really I think I have any original recipes except for the grilled cheese one I shared the other day – but is a grilled cheese preference really a recipe? Chances are, if I am going to wow you with a recipe, it will be from Millie.
This is why I am going to share with you two recipes that will make you squirm and gape and gawk at the ingredients. These are clearly southern recipes. CLEARLY. I have no idea where they originally came from – but I do know that they have both been a part of my family since forever.
The first is a sauce. Of course. But this is magic sauce.
Green Bean Sauce
You will never eat naked green beans again.
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup grated white or yellow onion
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1 hard boiled egg, grated
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp Worchester sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
Mix all ingredients and serve over green beans. Store in glass jar in fridge.
Macaroni & Cheese That’s Different:
You have to try it. I’m not kidding.
1 8oz pk elbow macaroni
1 can mushroom soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup stuffed with pimento green olives, chopped
3 tabs butter, melted
1 cup mushroom stems & pieces
1 lb grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
Quick boil macaroni, drain and combine above ingredients in a greased casserole dish
Top with crumbled Ritz crackers
Bake for 30-40 minutes in a pre-heated (to 350) oven (cover with foil last 15 minutes if needed)
I have made a version of the Mac & cheese with reduced fat mayo, reduced fat mushroom soup, and less cheese and it was just as good. But you can not use reduced fat cheese in baking. You just can’t.
