Oldies but goodies

Recently, a neighbor posted on facebook that she was in a rut with ground meat recipes and asked for new ideas with what to do with hamburger meat.  That got my brain turning toward my recipes, some of which I haven't made in quite awhile.  This one is an old favorite that I had forgotten about.  I think you will like it.

4 tablespoons cooking oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 sliced green bell peppers
1 lb. ground meat
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup canned corn
sliced tomatoes
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Saute onions and peppers in oil.

Add meat and salt and pepper.  Cook until meat is slightly browned.  Remove from heat.

Stir in eggs.  Place corn in bottom of a casserole dish, then half the meat mixture.  Top with layer of tomato slices.  Repeat layers.

Top with bread crumbs.  Dot with butter.  Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.

Time for Summer Salads!

 This cabbage salad is both colorful and delicious, as well as nutritious.

1 cup green cabbage, chopped
1 cup red cabbage, chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
3/4 cup corn kernels
1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
1 clove (or more!) garlic, chopped
olive oil

Combine all the vegetables and mix well.

Pour olive oil over - about 1/4 cup - and season with salt.

Chill to let the flavors blend.
