Fun on the farm with faith and family

Freezer cooking – Yummy mock filet

Leave a comment

I’m am SOOOOOO glad that warm weather is finally here and all the yummy foods that come with it.  That being said I do still get tired of the same old grilled foods we usually eat day in and day out.  It seems in the summer time we have three things to choose from, grilled steak, grilled hamburgers, or grilled hot dogs.  I love them all but I do get tired of eating them constantly.  I remembered a recipe my mother had tried on me over 20 years ago and went to  searching for it.  Once I had searched the internet for anything that looked remotely like the recipe my mother used i began my work.  After a test run and rave reveiws from my family I set to making a triple batch for the freezer so I can slap them on the grill any time were in the mood for someting different.  Here it is my version of the Mock Filet along with the method I use to freeze them.  (I triple this recipe and have the Kichenaid mixer do all the mixing for me)

1 lb. ground beef

1 jar muchroom pieces

2 tbsp. stuffed olives, chopped

2 tbsp green pepper chopped

1/2 c. Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp onions, chopped

6 slices bacon.

Put all above ingredients (except the bacon) into the mixer and mix well.

Now shape them into patties. (I like them to be even so I use a scale.) Then wrap the bacon around each one and fasten it with a toothpick.

You can grill (bake or fry) them now or freeze them in baggies for future use.  In our case we grilled a few for supper and I put the rest in the freezer for another time.  ENJOY!!

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
