Casserole Cuisine

casserole recipes

Casseroles
Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers
Favorite Recipes Press
1982

As a true Midwesterner, I embrace casserole cuisine. However, not all casseroles are created equal and this book proves it. Note the “surprise” casserole. (I think my mother had a similar recipe.) The other recipe worth noting is called “Ned’s Goop.” Looking at the ingredients, the word “goop” is fitting. The casserole staples always include a can of cream of mushroom soup, cheese of some kind and some kind of crunch factor, such as potato chips or bread crumbs. I won’t even comment on the calorie count or sodium consumed.

Enjoy!

500 Tasty Snacks
Ideas for Entertaining
1950

I think a good rule of thumb for cookbooks is that one should be able to identify the food pictured. Some of these old cookbooks seem to delight in NOT looking like something edible. Anyway, as we approach the holiday weekend, I am sure you will want to run, not walk, to the store and make some of these delightful treats for your 4th of July party. I am sure your guests will be delighted with hard-cooked eggs in jellied bouillon or jelled salmon.

Mix and Match Cooking

Three Easy Pieces
The Quick Menu Cookbook
General Foods Corporation
1985

This cookbook is trying to be clever by splitting the book into three sections. Get it? You mix and match each section to come up with a delightful menu. I thought it was an annoying gimmick and I was constantly trying to manage the pages. However, I took one for the team and created two menus that you can make. I suggest you try the frankfurter stuffing bake paired with a lima bean salad and a summer vegetable medley. You’re welcome.
