1 doz eggs
1 container cottage cheese
1 package shredded cheddar cheese
Crack eggs into a bowl. Fluff with a fork. Add other ingrediants and mix well. Pour into a well greased crockpot. Put on low 5-8 hours.
We only eat 1/2. So I put the other half into english muffins and have them for breakfast the next day! Easy!
Lentils, cheese and rice
3 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup dry lentils
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1/2 tsp basil (or not)
1/4 tsp oregano (or not)
1 clove garlic if you like it
4 ounces swiss cheese
Combine everything together, cook either 8 hours on low crockpot, or 1 hour on the stove.
You can use real sausages or vegetarian.
- Preheat the oven to hot
- Boil seven medium sized peeled potatoes.
- Meanwhile simmer puy/brown lentils until soft
- Meanwhile fry two or three onions on a medium heat until transparent
- Fry a couple of sausages per person
- Mix all the ingredients except the potatoes and add your favourite seasoning/stock cube/ gravy until it resembles a ‘ground beef’ consistency
- Lay this mixture at the base of your largest casserole dish
- Mash the potatoes, add a teaspoon of salt, and spread these over the top
- Fluff the potatoes up with a fork and sprinkle on some parmesan cheese and add blobs of butter
- Put in the oven until the top looks nicely browned
DH or yourself can add pepper/ chilli sauce at the plate
Honey Baked Lentils
Combine in a dutch oven or saucepan:
1 lb lentils (2 1/3 C)
1 bay leaf
5 C water
2 tsp salt
Boil, covered, for 30 minutes. Do not drain. Discard bay leaf.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine and then mix into lentils:
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp powdered ginger
1 TB soy sauce
1/2 C chopped onion (sub. 2 cloves garlic or a touch of onion powder even for picky kids)
1 C water
4 slices bacon, chopped (I usually precook lightly)
Stir in most of bacon into lentils. Pour into lightly greased casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining bacon on top.
Pour over all:
1/3 C honey
Cover and bake 1 hour. If I precook the bacon a touch and sauté the onion I usually don’t bake this long. Makes for a faster dinner that way and still tastes pretty good. If you have the time, baking together will mix flavors a bit more, I’m sure. If you don’t cook bacon first, take the lid off to brown it on top for the last several minutes.
It’s flexible. That’s a basic outline anyway.

3 C Water
14 oz Chicken Broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 c. wild rice
1/2 t. thyme
1/4 t. black pepper
3 C cooked/shredded chicken
It also calls for spinach but I left it out and can’t remember how much.
Put everything except the chicken and spinach in the crockpot on High 7-8 hours or low 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
add chicken and spinach last half hour or less.
This is almost not enough for my family of 6. Kids ages 3-11
