Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
This recipe is from "Enjoy" in the "Best of Bridge" series of excellent cookbooks.
This is a family favourite, and I have even had Pakistani friends ask me for this recipe :)
1 cup wild rice, cooked...I use Uncle Ben's
Cook onion in butter until tender but not brown. Remove from head and stir in flour. drain mushrooms, reserving liquid. Add chicken broth to mushroom liquid to measure 1-1/2cups. Gradually add to flour mixture. Add cream, cook and stir until thick. Add cooked wild rice, mushrooms, chicken, pimento, parsley, salt and pepper. Place in a 2 qt. casserole, sprinkle with almonds.
Japanese Chicken Wings
This is from the "Best of Bridge", the first book in the series, by a group of women from Calgary, Canada. They are the best cookbooks I have ever found, and mine are very very worn. My kids, over the years, have even marked them up, writing "Mom make this!" It amazes me that these ladies are all beautiful and slim. GGGRRRRR!
In the cookbook I think they are listed as an appetizer. However I serve them as the main course with rice, and I know my kids will ALWAYS show up for dinner!
3 lbs. chicken wings
Cut wings at joint. Dip in egg, then in flour. Fry in butter until deep brown. Place in a shallow roasting pan and pour sauce over wings.
Grey Cup Casserole
I got this recipe years ago from a friend of mine.
It is a nice treat.
1 can (6-1.2 oz) crabmeat....I usually use 2 cans
Put rice in 2 qt. casserole. Place crab pieces over rice. Sprinkle with cheese. Toss in mushrooms.
Melt butter in saucepan. Add flour and then milk, gradually. Stir over low heat until smooth and thick. Remove from heat and sitr in mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour over casserole ingredients. Sprinkle with bread crumbs. Dot with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes, uncovered.
Cabbage Roll Casserole
Another hit from the "Best of Bridge" cookbooks, this one can be found in "Grand Slam". It is a fast and yummy alternative to cabbage rolls.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2 medium onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 14oz. can tomatoe sauce
1 can water
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
4 cups cabbage, shredded
Brown beef, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add tomato sauce and water. Bring to a boil and stir in rice. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Place 1/2 of the cabbage in a greased baking dish; cover with 1/2 the rice mixture. Repeat layers. Cover and bake in 350 degree oven for one hour. Serve with sour cream.
Zucchini Cheese Pie
I think I got this recipe from the box of "bisquick". It is really good, a nice light dinner when served with a salad.
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Mix cheese, zucchini, bisquick, oil and parsley. In a bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper. Mix with other ingredients. Pour into 9" pie plate and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serves 6-8.
from "Winners" in the "Best of Bridge" series. This is really yummy.
1/4 cup flour
Mix flour, salt, pepper and thyme in a plastic bag. Shake chicken to coat well. Brown chicken in butter and remove to casserole dish. Add green onions and mushrooms to frying pan. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Add to casserole dish. Mix lemon juice, sugar, salt and apple juice. Pour over chicken and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Serves 6.
Cheddar and Broccoli Chicken
I got this recipe the label from "Campbell's" cheddar and broccoli soup. It's a real no brainer and my kids love it!
4 chicken breasts, diced
Saute chicken in oil under cooked, then add soup plus 1 can water. Add broccoli. Heat through.
