We love potatoes, so I'm always searching for new ways to make them. I came up with this recipe as a change of pace from the usual baked potatoes. This dish travels well to a picnic or other gathering.
These are a bit different from traditional pasties, but the ingredients are probably already on your pantry shelf. My husband really enjoys these, so I like to double the recipe and freeze the extras to have on hand as a quick meal.—Judy Marsden, Ontario, California
From St. Louis, Missouri, Denise Dowd shares this mouthwatering meal-in-one. We tripled the number of rosemary-seasoned tenderloins, so you can serve one with the potatoes for a family dinner, then save the leftover pork for the next two recipes.
Convenience items like frozen vegetables and a jar of cheese sauce make it a snap to assemble this comforting pork chop supper from Gregg Voss. "It's an easy meal-in-one," he writes from Emerson, Nebraska.
I made several of these hearty pies for a branding bee on our cattle ranch. Everybody had to have the recipe. With mashed potatoes, ground beef, beans and fresh vegetables, it's truly a meal in itself.
I concocted this recipe as a way to use up some vegetables before they went bad. Everyone loved this lively blend of roasted veggies, especially the acorn and butternut squash. It goes particularly well with pork roast, porn loin or pork chops.
Meet the Cook: Especially during fall and winter, this recipe is a favorite. With its red color, it looks great served at Christmastime. It's nice for taking to potlucks as well.
My husband and I have two grown children. I teach home economics.
