Yeah looks good.
We used to sell the stouffer's vegetable lasagna At OSU as it was easy for the
cooks to make.
It was good, then it got not as good.

Just found a recipe for it.

Ingredients

1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
½ cup each well drained finely chopped carrots, spinach, broccoli, onions
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1 egg
1 lb. cooked lasagna noodles
1 cup buttered bread crumbs*

Directions

For the sauce: Make a white roux by whisking flour and melted butter over a medium flame; add milk, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk constantly until mixture is thickened. Set aside.
Combine the veggies, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, and egg. Mix together well.
Put a small amount of the sauce on the bottom of the pan, followed by a layer of cooked noodles, veggie mix, sauce, repeat til you've used it all up. Top with buttered bread crumbs and bake at 400° covered til bubbly, 45-60 minutes,. Remove cover and allow to brown for about ten minutes. Remove from oven and let it rest for at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
(To make buttered breadcrumbs simply pour melted butter over the crumbs)

Serves about 6
Recipe, dairy, copycat kosher

I bet it was fantastic.

Thank you Skip, Mike and Bamalamalu, yes it was very tasty. I usually make a Marinara sauce in addition and pour it on top when we serve the meal.

I know most of you are anti-Facebook holdouts but there has been a recipe floating around Facebook for Mississippi Pot Roast with butter, dry au jus mix, dry Ranch dressing mix, and pepperoncini peppers. It was good but not amazing.



(Don't judge me for the butter on the mashed potatoes )

Won’t judge you for the butter on the mashed potatoes but this “Ranch dressing mix’
Uuggg.

When I worked at the Ohio state University the students put ranch dressing on EVERYTHING
Even French fries!

Sooo if you are setting a trap and want to catch young college students ranch dressing is the Bait you would use is this case.

The bait for wannabe fake chefs is whole grain mustard, they can’t cook without it.

OK, one more then I'll give it a rest. Do you or a friend have vegetarian tendencies and psychotherapy hasn't helped? Try seitan - made from wheat protein (gluten). It had a texture that is closer to meat than any other meat substitute I have tried. It also had about 25 gms of protein for 4 ounces, very close to meat. Pan fry it with a little oil to crisp it up and it takes seasonings very well. I have tried it for fajitas, shawarma, bahn mi, stroganoff, BBQ sandwiches, Philly Cheesesteak, and here grilled teriyaki. Dessert is Chai Coconut Ice Cream. (PS - I didn't eat the seitan-devil meat, I made teriyaki chicken for the carnivores )

Busy kitchen lately, Mad Dog! I don't understand the concept of fake meat, but I tried flavored/prepared seitan once and it wasn't bad.

There's a weird (kinda sorta) Death Metal themed vegan restaurant here. It seems odd to specifically Not have meat in that environment, but I guess they figure they make up for it by serving SEITAN!

Chicken feet yuk.
Can't take that Gelatinous skin fat texture.
Make chix stock out of them.
My dishwasher at the restaurant one day had a foil package in the oven come to find out it was pig tails, same Gelatinous skin fat texture.

Was in a cooks competition at OSU where you had to use seitan or tofu, If I had to not use meat I would go with morel mushrooms or portabella mushrooms.

Man things like pig tails and chicken feet or tripe that is what poor people ate because they were very cheap or even free way back when.

bamalamalu, I have 2 teenage stepdaughters who have become vegetarian For most teens, vegetarian means skip the burger and have two orders of fries so I worry about them getting enough protein. Yes, heavy metal vegetarian does seem like an oxymoron.
Skip, all those things that we ate as a kid because they were cheap have become "gourmet". Have your priced beef tongue lately?

Well part of the reason these scrap or tough meats are costing more now is we learned how to cook them and marinade them to make them not so tough and taste good.
Think of flank steak.

The other reason may be because the fact that there are more people from other parts of the world living in America now and they want these meats we don't eat so much.

If you go to other parts of the world they tend to like dark meat chicken, in Asia it is only the eldest member of the family out of respect that get the chicken wings, here some throw those out.
But here more like the white meat chicken and it costs more.
You can't sell much white meat chicken in some parts of the world.
Heck it's even getting hard to find whole chickens with the necks and gizzards at the stores some times.
AND price the whole chickens vs the cut up parts of chickens.
It costs way less, so learn how to cut up a chicken it's not that hard.

I like the dark chicken with the bone while my wife likes the boneless white meat.
But it works out as we eat the whole bird that way.

How much food do you think Americans throw away at Thanksgiving alone?
Man I use that whole bird, the leftovers and soup is the best part of Thanksgiving!
