Sounds to me that you have the ingredients for a nice curry sauce to put over turkey and noodles. Sounds yummy to me.

I'd skip the curry powder and just make soup. You have the ingredients for that.

Is it all-purpose or self-rising? If self-rising, you can do this. If all purpose, you'll need to add a little baking powder to the flour.
Then add an egg and milk. Make a dough. Roll or pat out the dough into a rectangle. Cover with a little soft butter or margarine and cover that with sugar and cinnamon.

Roll like a jelly roll and cut into slices. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake until cinnamon rolls are done.

You could make potato soup. Cut up your potatoes and onions, cover with water and boil with lid off for for about 15-20 mins. Drain off half of the water and add some milk. Salt pepper and margarine added also makes it taste great!

You could make a "cheeseburger pie"...although you didn't say now many servings you needed.

Basically, it's a recipe my mom made. She layered the bottom of a casserole dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce. Then, she sauteed ground beef, onions (and sometimes green pepper or celery, if we had some), seasoning it with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Then she topped the cooked meat layer with shredded or diced cheese (She usually made two sets of layers but you don't need to). Just add more tomato sauce, and finish it off with a layer of bread crumbs.

Heat in a 350F oven until the crumbs are browned, maybe 15 minutes. Or you could use your biscuit dough, that would be even better! Cook the casserole until the biscuits are done, at the temperature and however long it says to cook them.

It was pretty cheap, and it tasted good. She also served it with wedges of lettuce, if we had some, so it really was like a cheese burger.

Question: What Kind of Soup Can I Make?

Leave out the fish and soy sauce and put everything else in a crock pot. That is the ingredients for amazing soup that I call "end of the month soup" where I put whatever I have in the fridge and cupboards. Add enough water or better yet broth to cover and cook overnight. If you have some rice about 2 hours before you serve it, throw that in too.

I would brown the cut up chicken in oil, add your chopped green onions, celery, small amount of grated ginger, 1 tsp. at the most, 3 Tbsp. soy sauce, 2 tsp. garlic paste, and one can pineapple chunks with the juice. Simmer till vegetables are tender, add sprouts about 1 minute before removing from heat.
Spoon over your cooked rice. Stir fry! That sounds good, I may have to try that. You have great ingredients! :)

I have cooked hamburger patties, spanish rice, and baked onions. I am willing to add whatever necessary.

By melissa [75]08/13/2014

I would crumble and brown the ground beef, chop the onions, add the rice, add a large can of diced tomatoes, maybe 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 envelope taco seasoning. Simmer till rice is tender, maybe 25-30 minutes.
You could eat as is with warm bread, or spoon into tortilla shells and top with cheese. Sounds good to me!:)
For a different flavor, you could substitute the taco seasoning for Italian seasoning.

I would brown the hamburger, chop up the rest of the ingredients, add to pot. Add enough beef bullion cubes to correspond to how many cups of water you added. Add a can of stewed tomatoes for an even richer flavor.
Simmer around 1 hour to let flavors blend and vegetables soften. You will now have a decent beef stew.:)
Pair with rolls and a salad and you're good to go!

Question: What Can I Make with Avocado, Kale, and Broccoli?

By Mary M.02/06/2014

I mix 1/2 avocado with 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese. Don't see why you can't throw some broccoli into the mix. I'm going to try it. I also like to sprinkle my avocado with a little fresh lemon juice. Serve this on a bed of kale. I've also done an avocado, hard boiled egg, kale and broccoli salad with a yogurt and balsamic dressing using a little honey to sweeten the dressing. Hope this helps.

Question: What Can I Make With These Ingredients?

We are snowed in and all we have is some pasta, tuna, onion, and frozen peas. What can I make with these ingredients?

By Herb G

Cook pasta as per package instructions and drain. Slice and fry the onion (and any garlic if you have it) till nice and brown in oil - butter will do if you don't have any oil but use a low heat since butter may burn on high heat. Add the frozen peas, mix in the drained tuna and combine everything with the pasta. Top with parmesan if you like.

Lovely meal which we happen to make often at home but I sometimes add a can of tomatoes as well after the onions are cooked and leave it to simmer for about 10 minutes. It's even better but I don't know if you have any. it's still very good without them.

Question: What Can I Make With These Ingredients?

I have 2 packages of black cherry Jello, a can of whole cranberries, pineapple, and walnuts What can I make with this?

By Penny L

You can make black cherry Jello with whole cranberries, pineapple, and walnuts. :)

Seriously, the wonderful thing about Jello is that you can add almost anything you want as filler or garnish. Do note, however, that enzymes in fresh pineapple will prevent the gelatin from setting, so you'll have to add it as a garnish after the gelatin sets (there is info about this on the Jello box). Canned pineapple is fine though because the heat used in canning destroyed the enzyme.

For example, you can make the Jello with cranberies inside. Then puree the pineapple to use as a sauce over the Jello (might want to puree a bit of the cranberries too to add tartness and color). Finally, sprinkle crushed walnuts over everything to add a bit of crunchiness and visual appeal. Or switch the ingredients around, i.e. put the walnut in the Jello, etc.

Or if you're using canned pineapple, you can make a Jello Pineapple roll. Simply open a can of pineapple, drain out the liquid and then pour the Jello in. The can serves as a mold. You can either put the cranberries and walnuts in the core before pouring the Jello in or use them as a garnish or puree sauce later.

What can I make with frozen cheese ravioli, frozen chicken breast, and a jar of Alfredo sauce?

By colliesr

Most Recent Answer

By Cassie [20]05/31/2011

You could make it like lasagna, except cook the ravioli according to package and then boil your chicken in a little bit of water til done. Then layer the cheese ravioli on the bottom of the pan and put your cooked chicken(shredded) on top of the ravioli. Then pour the alfredo sauce on top of that. Put in the oven and bake til all is bubbly and heated thoroughly. Yum yum! That sounds so good. Wish that I had those ingredients right now. This is a good recipe for those that are on a restricted diet due to acid reflux and peptic ulcers and can't have fried foods or foods with tomatoes due to the acid content.
