Tender Chicken & Rice Casserole

This little recipe is written on a piece of note paper and it’s all ragged around the edges as if it’s been handled a bit. However, it’s in my Mother’s handwriting, so I know it’s a good one.

1  Can Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 Can Milk (soup can)

Mix together & pour into 9×13 dish.

Over the top, lay pieces of uncooked chicken.  Sprinkle 1 pkg. dried onion soup mix over the chicken.

Cover with aluminum foil & seal the edges.

Amazing Coconut Pie

If it wasn’t for recognizing her handwriting, I wouldn’t know which recipes were from Mother or someone else. This one is hers. Did I tell you she was a great cook? Mother was a registered nurse. When she was at work, Grandma Matteson (her Mother) did the cooking. I’ll have more of Grandma’s recipes later. Stay tuned.

3/4 C White Sugar

1/2 Cup biscuit mix 

4 Eggs

1/4 C Oleo

1 1/2 t vanilla

1 C Baker Angel Flake Coconut

Combine first four ingredients in electric blender.  Cover and blend on low speed 3 minutes.  Pour into greased 9 inch pie pan.  Let stand 5 minutes then sprinkle with coconut.  Bake 350 deg. for 40 minutes.  Serve warm or cool.

Mom’s Macaroni and Cheese

One of my Mother’s favorite casserole recipes. She had many. Written in pencil on the back of a place mat, it’s in her handwriting. Seeing her handwriting is precious to me. It isn’t fancy, but it’s good if my Mother is sharing it.

8 oz  Macaroni

3 T  Oleo

2 C  Milk

2 T  Cornstarch or flour

1/4 C  Grated Onion

1/2  t  Dry Mustard

1/4 t  Worcestershire Sauce

1/4  t  Salt

1/8 t  Pepper

8 oz  Grated Cheddar Cheese

Cook macaroni. Drain and place in buttered 2 qt casserole.. In sauce pan melt butter, saute onion, stir in flour.  Slowly add milk until thickened. Add spices, cheese, stir until melted.  Pour over macaroni, sprinkle with crumbs.  Bake at 350 deg 30-40 minutes. (She didn’t say what kind of crumbs. You’ll have to figure that out for yourself.)
