Susie's Ham Salad
Makes 4 servings

3 cups minced ham
1/3 to 1/2 small onion
1/3 to 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
2 to 4 tablespoons pickle relish

In a blender put in cubed ham and cubed onion in small batches. Put the ham onion mixture in a bowl and when that is finished then add the pickle relish and Miracle Whip to the texture you want. The taste is the best when it is made the day before. Years ago I was told that ham salads in the grocery stores were made from bologna or hot dogs. These don't sound good to me and I have never had them and never will.

Tangy Roasted Tomatillo Guacamole
Yield: about 4 cups of guacamole

1 lb. Tomatillo's
6 large garlic cloves, peeled and left whole
1 small Poblano pepper, seeded and quartered
1 medium red onion, quartered
1 c. roughly chopped cilantro
1/3 c. freshly squeezed lime juice
lime zest from 2 limes
2 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 large avocados

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and add Tomatillo's, garlic, Poblano, and onion. Dry roast (no oil added) in oven for 10 minutes, then toss and roast for 5 minutes more, or until you are seeing nice charred marks. Let cool on pan for 20 minutes.

Add the roasted ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until broken down into chunks. Add cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, cumin, salt, and pepper. Pulse a few times until combined, yet still a bit chunky. Don't blend until completely smooth.

Chop the avocados into 1/2" pieces and add to a medium-large size bowl. Mash a bit to break up the avocado, then add the mixture from the food processor. Fold to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with chips and/or veggies. This is also great with tacos, eggs, chicken, and pulled pork.

This can be prepared an hour or so prior to serving. Simply cover tightly with plastic wrap (press the plastic onto the guacamole so air is not in contact with the guacamole) and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Here's a potato recipe that's really good.

Stuffed Mashed Potatoes

Bake 6 whole potatoes in microwave. Mash. Add 1 slightly eaten egg, 1/3 c parmesan cheese and 2 tbs. (room temp.) butter. Mix with hands. Add more egg if not holding together. Knead a little. Set aside.

Blanch spinach, or broccoli or asparagus. Chop finely. Place in bowl. Add diced mozzarella and diced ham. Sprinkle in chopped fresh basil or parsley.

Set aside. Place flour on table. Flour hands. Take handful or potato and roll into ball shape. Make trench in center. Place a tablespoon of veggie filling in trench. Place more potato around to close filling. Roll on floured board into a cylinder shape. Dip in beaten egg and then in seasoned bread crumbs. Deep fry till brown. I have no amounts for vegetables, mozzarella or ham. I just eyeball it.

Nancy, first thanks for all you do.
Next, many thanks to Robbie in for the fruited salad recipe. I think the only difference is that I did not use cream cheese. Will make you recipe however because it sounds so good.
Thanks again.
Jean in NC

I saw this on Facebook and finally made it tonight. It was so good my husband asked for a second helping. I would not add the chicken granules-makes it pretty salty. I made half a recipe and still ended up cooking it for 50 minutes. It may just be my oven.

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

The secret of this is not to stir anything. That's what makes your dumplings. When you dish it out, you have your dumplings on top.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded ( I use a store bought rotisserie chicken)
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 stick of butter
2 cups Bisquick
2 cups whole milk
1 can cream of chicken soup (the herbed cream of chicken soup if you can find it)
3 teaspoons of chicken granules (I use Wylers)
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt or more to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Layer 1 - In 9 x 13 casserole dish, melt 1/2 stick of butter. Spread shredded chicken over butter. Sprinkle black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Do not stir.

Layer 2 - In small bowl, mix milk and Bisquick. Slowly pour all over chicken. Do not stir.

Layer 3 - In medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups of chicken broth, chicken granules and soup. Once blended, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer. Do not Stir.
Bake casserole for 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

Diet Cola Sloppy Joe's
It tastes good...and even better the 2nd day.

1 lb ground white meat turkey....(or if you prefer ground beef)
1/2 medium yellow onion
1/2 - 3/4 cup of diet coke
1/2 - 3/4 cup of low sugar or low Carb ketchup (use the same amount as the cola)
splash of apple cider vinegar
couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce
couple dashes of hot sauce (I use franks)
1 tsp. of chili powder
1 tsp. of salt
couple dashes of onion powder

Brown meat and onion until cooked thoroughly.

Add rest of the Ingredients to the meat and onions. Bring up to low boil, and then turn down to simmer. Simmer, and stir periodically until the liquid reduces.

I eat it straight from the bowl, but it would also be good on "floopsies". Serve with some low Carb cole slaw.

Quick and Easy meal with great left overs. I have no idea how it freezes, but not sure why it wouldn't. As best I can tell, the only carbs come from the onion and ketchup.
