The term "picky eater" may have started when small children began refusing offers of liver and onions while feeding their Brussels sprouts to pets under the table. A new generation of "kid friendly" foods was born, and Cheeseburger Pizza is just that—thumbs up kid-approved. —Jennifer Miller, Smyrna, Tennessee
Because it makes such a big batch, this popular four-bean bake is perfect for potlucks...but I like to serve it with rolls and a salad at home too. We take the leftovers for lunch during the week.
Many people cringe when they hear the term "meat loaf", but it's one of my favorite foods that Mom made while I was growing up. I love the ketchup topping, and the loaf freezes well.
Remember those times when only a burger in all its smoky, juicy, jumbo-layered, lettuce pickle madness can hit the spot? Roasted red onions and mayo blended with crushed peppercorns make this the spot-on burger. —Melissa Jelinek, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
I tweaked my beefy skillet cobbler until it achieved the wow factor. I must have gotten it right, as it's now a family tradition. Top it off with lettuce, avocado, cherry tomatoes and a dollop of sour cream. —Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois
My husband and three sons love these crispy sandwiches filled with a moist pizza-flavored mixture. I often make them on a weekend and double the recipe. On week-nights when I'm busy or helping my son with homework, I pop the sandwiches in the oven and have a family-pleasing dinner on the table without a lot of effort.
