Here’s another cold weather camper idea that worked to warm up some tummies as well as the travel trailer …
In an effort to use more greens, I decided to try a casserole side dish. It was sort of like a cornmeal, cheesy, greens bake more than anything.
If you have read any of my other posts, I am not much of a recipe gal but I am making an effort to keep better track of things. I don’t think this is a special skill. It really means that anyone can experiment with the foods they like and make tasty goodness. This strategy is, however, not without error.
I used an 8 oz. package of cornbread mix, 8 oz. of biscuit mix, 3 eggs, 1/3 cup of oil, a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt, pepper, a cup of salsa, cup of grated cheddar cheese and a huge pile of chopped mixed greens. Mix together and pour into a well greased casserole pan. Bake at 350 for about 30 or so.
This casserole looked good, smelled and tasted pretty good. But, it was a little blah. I think next time I might do it tamale pie style over some ground beef. It just needed a little something extra to be a home run. Better luck next time.
Have you had any luck with your greens casseroles?
