Having the recipes my grandmother and her fellow pastors' wives used and cherished is a treasure. Many dishes evoke the 1970s: lots of cream of mushroom/chicken soup, shortcuts popular in that time to get a meal on the table. But I'm not sure things have changed all that much. We're still in a time crunch, we still want to have good food quickly. and so I hope I can find some gems to share.
The first recipe I chose is simple and surprisingly good. I found a pretty major typo in the recipe, so I'm going to give you my version which works better (although if my grandmother were here, she'd probably disagree.) Sloppy Joe Bunwiches can be a great appetizer or quick dinner.
(And please forgive the food photography quality. I'm a little rusty.)
Note these changes to the recipe:
- Bake at 350 degrees, not 450 stated in the recipe.
- Add a chopped green pepper if you like.
- Use one container of 8 count refrigerated biscuits.
- Makes 8 servings.
