Dave’s Cabbage Rolls

2 pounds lean hamburger
2 cups uncooked white rice – par cook with 2 ½ cups water
1/2 tsp pepper
1 ½ tsp Hy’s seasoning salt
5 toes minced garlic
1 medium onion chopped
1 tsp Norton tender Quick (this just makes the meat look red)
2 cans tomato soup
1 can tomato paste or sauce


Either freeze the night before and then peal after it has been defrosted
Alternatively, cut out the core and put in boiling water to soften leaves (make sure that you do not over cook it).  Remove large veins from leaves.  Wrap filling in leaves.

Spread one can of tomato soup on the bottom to help prevent burning of cabbage rolls.  Place cabbage rolls in the roaster.  Put two to three cans tomato soup over the cabbage rolls.  Cover this with remaining cabbage leaves.  Place lid on the roaster and bake for 2 hours at 300 to 325F.

Enchilada Casserole – Trudy Semler  - modified by Dan Degner (this recipe has a bit more heat than hers as I use more enchilada sauce)

1 lb veggie crumbles (or ground lean meat like beef or turkey)
1 can tomato soup
½ can (small) Enchilada sauce
½ cup raw onion
1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp Lawreys or Hy’sseasoning salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder

  • Fry onion for a bit, then add garlic, then add remaining ingredients.  Just need to warm Veggie crumbles.  For meat need to cook completely til juices run clear.
  • Roll small corn tortilla shells with the filling mixture and place seam side down in a greased 9 by 13” deep baking pan (pampered chef one works well).


½ cup cream or canned milk
½ tomato juice
½ small can enchilada sauce
1 can tomato soup

  • Mix above sauce ingredients together and pour over the enchiladas.
  • Sprinkle 2 cups veggie melt cheese or real cheddar/mozzarella (50:50 mix) on top
  • Bake casserole for 30 minutes at 350 degrees farenheit.
  • Let rest for about 10 minutes, then serve and enjoy.

Suggestions:  Serve with corn mush bake or corn bread muffins.  Jalepeno sauce is great if you like some heat.

Green Bean Casserole

½ cup milk
¼ tsp pepper
1 tsp soy sauce
2/3 cup french’s fried onions

Mix the above together.

Par cook 4 cups green bean (about 4 minutes)

Lasagna – by Dan Degner

9 lasagna noodles uncooked
1 1/2 big jars of prego or other brand tomato with Italian sausage sauce
1 pound hamburger
1 big carton of cottage cheese
3 eggs
1 cup fresh parmesan or romano cheese
4 cups mozerrella cheese

1.  Fry and drain hamburger and add tomato sauce
2.  place a good amount of the meat sauce to coat the bottom of a 9 by 13" casserole dish - that way it won't stick
3.  place one layer of lasagna noodles (3 noodles)
4.  Mix 1 cup parmesan cottage chesse and eggs and pour over lasagna noodles
5.  place one layer of lasagna noodles on cottage cheese
6.  place half of the remaining sauce on the noodles
7.  place on layer of lasagna noodles
8.  place remainning sauce on the last layer of noodles
9.  cover with mozzerella cheese
10. Bake in  oven at 350F with a lid on for 1 hour and 15 minutes; remove lid and bake for about 10 minutes to brown mozerrella cheese.  Note do not cover with tin foil as the acids in the tomato sauce will eat at the foil (I don't think that that is healthy to eat aluminum - I think that it causes Alzheimer's disease).
11.  remove from oven and allow to rest for about 20 minutes.  That way the lasagna will set up and can be cut and served easier.

Note:  I also have put spinach in one of the layers (like on top of the cottage cheese mix) and that is really good...if that is your taste.
