Leave a comment

Here is one of the new recipes I tried on my family this week.  I am very happy to report that they LOVED it and the best part is that it is completely good for them!  I guess I’m getting better at disguising healthy foods because they didn’t suspect a thing!  Here is the recipe.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did!

Beef and Bean Casserole

1 Lb lean ground beef

1 small onion chopped

1 lb fresh green beans (you could also use frozen)

4 medium potatoes

1 egg beaten

1/3 C milk (I used goat milk)

1 TBS butter

1/4 tsp white pepper

1 C grated cheddar cheese

2 tsp wheat germ

In a frying pan, brown the hamburger and onion until done.  Mix in green beans. Place mixture in a 8×8 casserole dish. 

Boil potatoes in small amount of water until very tender, drain and mash with the butter.  Beat egg, milk and pepper together then add to the hot potatoes and blend thoroughly.  (at first you will think you added to much milk because it looks runny but as the egg cooks in the hot potatoes the mixture will thicken again.) Spread potato mixture over beef mixture.

Sprinkle top with shredded cheese and wheat germ. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

makes 4 servings.

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
