Mother's or Grandmother's treasured passed down recipe....

Terri C | Sep 29, 2007 10:48 AM

Hey everyone...just curious to see what your most treasured passed down recipe was.

Here's mine...

Mother's (very simple)
Sloppy Joes
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1 tbsp sugar

Cook meat and onion....drain. Add all other ingredients and let simmer for 20 minutes. Also great as a dip with chips. During the summer my parents ran the ballparks. My mother always served these at the concessions and it was the first to go. Very simple and quick to make. Everyone always ask for the recipe.

Grandmother's
Cheese spaghetti (Goes with Roast)
Spaghetti Noodles
Velveeta Cheese
Chili powder
Garlic salt
pepper
Juice from Roast

Cook spaghetti...drain. Return to pot and low heat. Add cheese, chili powder, garlic, pepper, and roast from juice to taste. The key is the roast juice. Most people put milk in mac and cheese, the juice simply makes it. I never had the privilege of meeting my grandmother as she passed before I was born, however, you could always count on this with every roast made.
