GINGERSNAPS and mushrooms give these tender meatballs a special old-world flavor. The recipe was handed down from my husband's family several years ago.
I love to cook and found that this was an easy recipe to double and share with friends. The meatballs can also be frozen for a convenient meal at a later time.

I often take this hearty meal-in-one dish to potluck suppers at the community seniors' group my husband and I helped organize. It's delicious for sauerkraut lovers and easy to double for a larger crowd. —Reta Christensen, New Denmark, New Brunswick
This is a great dish to serve for St. Patrick's Day - or any time. It features corned beef, sauerkraut and other ingredients that make Reuben sandwiches so popular. It's always well received at a potluck.—Margery Bryan, Royal City, Washington
It looks so elegant that everyone thinks I really fussed when I serve this roast. But it's actually so easy! The biggest challenge is to remember to order the crown roast from the meat department ahead of time. My family loves the succulent pork and savory bread stuffing.

Maryellen Boettcher shares this all-in-one meal from her Fairchild, Wisconsin farm. "I've taken this hearty dish to countless events, and it's popular every time," she says. Slices of bratwurst take center stage alongside potatoes, sauerkraut, apple and onion.
You'll need just four ingredients to fix this simple supper that makes the most of convenience products. This is a super-easy way to make a "comfort food" dinner for your family. To save time, defrost the meatballs in the microwave.—Sarita Powers, Madison, Virginia
