Marlene Lackey’s Cheesy Bean Casserole

(easy to make into a shepherd’s pie with 1 lb cooked hamburger & add other veggies to the beans.)

4 cups frozen tater tots, 3 potatoes sliced or even mashed potatoes

1 can green beans drained

1 can cream of chicken soup (or cream of other soups like broccoli, mushroom etc.) Can also use 2 cups sour cream.

1 1/2 cups grated cheese (I use cheddar, marble or mozzarella)

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Layer tater tots or sliced potatoes in a baking dish

Pour over green beans

Spread soup on this evenly

Sprinkle on grated cheese, then parmesan cheese.

Cover and cook in oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.



Grandma Marilyn’s Oatmeal Pancakes

Cakes: 14

1/2 cup milk/buttermilk/creamer or non-dairy creamer or milk

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup quickcooking oatmeal

1 egg

1/2 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Mix all ingredient together. Blend well. Melt a little butter in a hot skillet & pour pancake mixture on skillet (I use a 1/3 cup to pour the pancake.) Watch bubbles on sides. When a bubble doesn’t pop on its own, turn it over.

I use an electric skillet set at 300 degrees F.

TOPPINGS: butter, syrup, peanutbutter, nutella, banana, whipped cream, berries
