PORK CHOP CASSEROLE by Lynda Campbell
2 lbs. pork chops, browned
2 cups Water
1/2 cup rice (uncooked)
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. parsley flakes
dash of pepper
1 onion, sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
Mix rice, water and seasonings and spread evenly on the bottom of fry pan. Add the pork chops. Slice one onion over top (more if desired). Add soups over onions and pork chops. Cover and simmer one hour. Stir until all is mixed well. (Can add water if gets a little dry while cooking.)
Puree garlic, rosemary, wine, and olive oil. Pierce meat with a sharp knife in several places and press the garlic paste into the openings. Put meat and puree in a plastic bag to marinate for a few hours. Add a few dried minced onions, if desired.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Pour meat and marinade into bottom of pan. Add chicken boullion. Place into oven, turning and basting with pan liquids. Cover and cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, one and a half to 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F. Remove roast to a platter. Serve with pan juices, thickened with flour and water.
If desired, good with red potatoes right in the pot.
Famous Ribs by Kyle Miskin
We buy non-marinated bone-in pork ribs in the sealed packs, babyback or otherwise. We get them at Sam’s club a lot, but those are usually in big packages. I’ve also bought the John Morrell ribs at our local Lee’s, but don’t know about other brands. Kyle washes them off and pats them dry, then seasons them really well with salt and pepper on both sides, and some McCormick’s Grill Mates Spicy Montreal Steak seasoning on the meat side. He puts them in a large roasting pan with a lid, or you could use a large disposable foil baking pan tightly covered with foil. He bakes them for 5 hours in a 250 degree oven. About half way through baking, he drains off but about ¼ inch of liquid and moves the ribs around so the top rib is on the bottom and the bottom rack of ribs are on the top. Don’t stack ribs exactly on top of each other. Space them and alternate so there isn’t one thick layer of meat to cook. When done, remove from pan and grill them meat side down until toasty brown. Then flip over and get the bottom of the ribs crispy, so the fat cooks off. Immediately baste with Bull’s Eye Original BBQ sauce. Serve with additional sauces---whatever is your favorite sauce. You probably like something spicy.
Kyle’s philosophy is---“If it doesn’t taste right, you didn’t do it right!”
Place spareribs in crock pot. Sprinkle generously with favorite seasoning (garlic, herb) and add ¼ cup water and 2 tsp bottled garlic. Cook for 8 hours on low or 5 hours on high. Serve with barbeque sauce , if desired.

Bacon Chicken Bake by Lisa Blau 1/2 lb. bacon, finely chopped and cooked (but not too crisp)
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3 tbsp. dried minced onion (fresh onion will work as well, but use less)
skinless, boneless chicken breasts (as many as you want - but this will cover about 4)
Ranch dressing (any brand)
1 stick butter, melted
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix bacon, breadcrumbs, and dried onion flakes in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste. (I add about a tsp of each.) Brush each chicken breast liberally with ranch dressing and then coat with breadcrumb topping liberally. Place in a foil lined pan. Do this with each breast. Top with melted butter. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 more. Finish under the broiler for about 5 minutes for a crispy brown crust.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole By Joyce Miskin
3 broccoli heads cut into small bunches and steamed until tender (add more as desired)
(May use frozen broccoli in place of fresh broccoli.)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 cans cream of chicken soup - undiluted
4 cup cooked chicken cut into pieces (about 4 – 6 chicken breasts)
Optional topping - 4Tbsp melted butter mixed with 1 cup bread crumbs.
Spray 9 x 13 casserole pan with non-stick spray and arrange cooked broccoli evenly in pan.
Blend mayonnaise, lemon juice, and soup. Arrange chicken pieces evenly on top of the broccoli.
Spread soup over the chicken and top with grated cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with bread crumb mixture
if desired. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 25 min.
Add diced, cooked carrots to the broccoli
Serve on rice or noodles
This recipe can be varied according to how much you like the chicken vs. broccoli ratio. I used to use frozen broccoli, but it was kind of woody and old sometimes. They have improved the frozen products lately, though. They also have bags of fresh broccoli already cut up in the produce section if you want to save time. Call me if you have questions.
