Posts Tagged ‘Comfort Food’

January is a great month to dig into my stash of comfort food recipes. When the weather is gloomy, there is nothing like a comfort-food meal to just make the day seem brighter.

One of Hubby’s favorites is salisbury steak. I know there are many, many variations of this recipe, but this is an easy one that we both enjoy.

Salisbury Steak

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef

1 small can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 cup bread crumbs (or Saltine crackers crumbled)

1 egg

1 tsp. onion flakes

1 tsp. all-purpose seasoning (like Mrs. Dash)

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 cup water

In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion flakes, seasoning, salt and pepper. Form into six patties. Combine water and soup in a separate bowl and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of the patties. Pour off excess fat.  Pour soup mix over patties, cover and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This is great served with rice or creamy mashed potatoes.

Enjoy and Happy Entertaining!

Growing up, I think I was the only one in our home who loved pasta – especially Mom’s chicken and noodles. She made the noodles from scratch and cooked the chicken for hours until it literally fell apart. It was probably my favorite meal that she made (which she never made often enough!).

Since I still love chicken and noodles but don’t have the time to invest in preparing it the way she did, I was thrilled when I found this easy crock pot recipe. It takes just minutes to put together and is so good. It is the perfect comfort food for a cold wintery day. Enjoy!

Chicken & Noodles

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt and pepper to taste

2 10-3/4 oz. cans cream of chicken soup

1 14-1/2 oz. can chicken broth

16-oz. package of wide egg noodles, cooked

Place chicken in a slow cooker and sprinkled the salt and pepper. Top with both cans of cream of chicken soup, cover and cook on low setting for six hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and add broth along with the cooked noodles. Mix well, cover and cook on low setting for an additional 30 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6.

Happy Entertaining!
