Old Fashion Recipes for Meat and Vegetable Casseroles



Sometimes the old recipes provide us with some of our best meals. If you are a family cook who likes meat and vegetable dishes, try these recipes from my vintage recipe collection. Hearty Ham Supper is a great way to use up leftover ham. Cabbage and Ground Beef provides a hearty tasty meal.
A quick, easy meal and a good way to use up leftover ham.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups scalded milk
2 cups cooked ham cut into cubes
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup cooked diced potatoes
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 cup shredded American cheese
Melt the butter and add flour. Blend until smooth. Add scalded milk and stir until boiling. Combine other ingredients, except cheese, in baking dish. Pour the sauce over the ham mixture and top with cheese. Bake in 350 degrees F. oven for 30 minutes. Feeds 4 to 6.
As I have said repeatedly, I love these old recipes. When I was a child my dad planted 3 or 4 gardens. He loved to garden, he loved having the vegetables, and he loved giving to others. For many years he was the local township trustee. Part of his job was giving out subsidies to those who qualified. He often gave them what the county allowed then sent them home with bags of his garden produce. The one vegetable I anxiously awaited was the large cabbages. I think I like cabbage anyway you can prepare it! Almost every time I buy a head of cabbage I think about the large ones dad grew in his gardens.
1 small head of green cabbage, cut in chunks
tea kettle of boiling water
1 onion, diced
1 lb ground chuck
1/4 cup raw rice (not instant)
1 can tomato soup
1 soup can of water
Place cabbage in a large pan or heat-proof bowl and pour the boiling water over it to wilt; drain.
Brown the ground chuck with the onion, adding salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the meat is no longer pink and the onion is tender; drain well.
Mix the drained cabbage with the ground beef/onion mixture. Stir in the rice, tomato soup and soup can of water until mixed together well. Pour into a greased casserole dish.
Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for approximately 1 1/2 hours.
