When our kids were all home I used to make a dish that is easy and the kids ate.
1 yellow onion
1 green pepper
1 or 2 cans drained mushrooms
2 cups shell ( or other ) macaroni
3 cans tomato sauce ( or similar amounts or other sauce )
1 can cream style corn ( I have mixed this with whole corn and cream corn if I double the recipe )
sharp cheddar cheese
1 lb. ground beef

Fry onion and green pepper in small amount of oil
Brown meat
Add mushrooms
Remove from heat
Boil macaroni until tender. Drain and add to the above
add tomato sauce and corn and mix well
Place in a greased casserole and refrigerate unless ready to eat
When ready to bake grate lots of sharp cheese on top and put in 300 degree oven for and hour
If eating right away just heat until cheese on top melts
Serves about 6 people

It's good with a lettuce salad

Our easy go-to is Goulash, or what some people have called goulash. It's just a ground beef tomato casserole.

Brown the beef. Cook Egg noodles. Combine Egg noodles,and beef with plain old tomato sauce from the can, a bunch of shredded cheddar cheese, canned corn (drained) and whole olives (drained). Put some extra cheese on top if you want. It's simple and delicious. Anytime we've tried to change it up (add onions! Use different cheese!) it just ruins it.

We also do the Tater Tot casserole (or cowboy casserole), pretty much the same way except corn not peas.

Taco salad- brown the ground beef with taco seasoning- mix with chopped lettuce, tomato, can of kidney beans or whatever kind, avocado, grated cheese. sliced olives. Coat the whole thing in a mixture of jar salsa and 1,000 Island dressing (1/2 and 1/2). Serve it up with Fritos. Thats how we like it. Yum, I'll be making that next week.

I also have an easy skillet taco/cornbread bake I do... Brown the ground beef, throw in a can of black beans, can of corn (drain all these), a jar of salsa. simmer that for about 10 or 15 minutes. Then mix up your favorite, instant cornbread. Put grated cheese on top of the bean/meat mixture, then spread the cornbread batter over it and bake til the cornbread is done. You have to have an oven safe skillet for this.

OK one more, Mexican Lasagne, a little more complicated but some people really like it. Brown the ground beef and add taco seasoning, a little Lawry's salt, can of green chilies, and can of diced tomatoes. Simmer 15-30 minutes. It may also have a small can of tomato sauce in it, I don't have the recipe in front of me. Mix 8 oz of ricotta with an egg. Grate up some monterey jack cheese. Then layer this stuff with corn tortillas like a lasagne. Build up from the bottom---meat mixture, tortillas, ricotta mixture, cheese, then repeat ending with cheese on top. Bake it up for 1/2 hour.

Sorry I didn't write these as real recipes with the ingredients listed first. If you like them you can translate them. And I also didn't put any exact measurements or oven degrees. I am assuming you are a decent cook and can figure it out! None of these are too hard to screw up.

Porcupine Meatballs!

1 - 1 1/4 lb hamburger
1 box Chicken Rice A Roni
1 egg
Sauteed onions (optional)
Sausage (optional -- use less beef to make it equal a poundish)

Mix raw meat, egg, sauteed onions, and rice from Roni box. Ball in 1" pieces. Brown in large (deep) skillet. After all meatballs are browned, add amount of water designated on Roni box with seasoning from Roni box. Add to meatballs, cover, and simmer for 35 - 40 minutes.

If you use the Family sized box of Roni, add more meat.

A regular box makes about 24 meatballs. We freeze up about 6-8 meatballs for a meal (family of 4 --- 2 littles).

This is one of those things you can make a big batch of, and freeze for future meals. We do this often. Just made a double batch on Friday -- made 8 meals for us.

Here is one my 4 yr old loves. The best thing is you can change it to your taste or increase to feed more:

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
about a pound of ground beef (I sometimes mix half ground turkey)
can of black beans, drained and rinsed
a can of corn, of course you can also use fresh corn off the cobb if you prefer
a cup of chicken broth

Saute the onions in a little oil--I prefer EVOO. Add the garlic after a minute. I found adding garlic sooner burns it. Then add the ground beef, season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned. Add the can of beans, corn and broth. Simmer for about 10 minutes. There will be a little liquid still. My kids like to eat with tortillas or make quesadillas to go with. My husband likes it when I remove some and add peppers as well since he prefers hot. Another variation is adding potatoes chopped up or serving over plain rice. Along with a salad, makes a one pot meal which saves me time washing dishes.


answers from Boston on

Add American chop suey to the list posted by Tracy. Bump up the nutrients by using whole wheat pasta and adding vegetables (you can use almost any frozen veggies - just throw in a handful for the last few minutes of cooking, just until the veggies thaw.

You can also use ground bison or ground turkey, or half & half. The leaner the meat, the less fat but the more moisture you need to add so it doesn't get dried out. I add all kinds of stuff to burgers - ground horseradish, defrosted chopped spinach, onions, a little hot sauce, ground flax seed (or whole ones), a little tomato sauce, and so on.

Tacos are good because they encourage kids to add in vegetables.

I also make enchiladas: brown up the meat (right then or ahead of time) or use chopped up cooked chicken. Put a whole wheat tortilla on a dinner plate, spread the center (a 2-inch wide stripe) with some refried beans, a few tablespoons of black, red or white beans, some ground meat, some frozen peas or corn, some chopped green peppers, and some cheddar or Mexican grated or cubed cheese. Fold over the 2 sides & secure with toothpick. Repeat with as many tortillas as you want. LIne up all the finished enchiladas on a baking sheet (You can refrigerate at this point until later) and top with some enchilada sauce (I just use plain tomato sauce and season it with cumin and cilantro or any other Mexican spice, and avoid the salt of the bottled sauce). Put in oven at about 350 for about 20 minutes until heated through. Top with more cheese for the last 5 minutes if desired, or serve grated cheese on the side

This is a great way to use up leftovers because the quantities don't matter. If one person doesn't eat a certain food, just leave it out of their enchilada!
