i got this recipe from a good friend in texas.

HOBO DINNER

preheat oven to 350*.
place on cookie sheet several sheets of foil, spray each with pam spray before placing a serving of boneless, skinless chicken breast (season to taste), top with (in order) sliced carrots, potato wedges, and onion slices. fold foil into tight closed pouch. you may have to use 2 sheets unless you use the heavy duty foil.

make several. these make good lunches to carry to work. bake about 1.5 hours at 350*, but check to see if it's done after 1 hour. if not, re-wrap and continue cooking.

you can also make these hobo dinners using tenderized round steak or lean ground beef. if you use ground beef, you might want to include a handful of shredded cabbage on top.

28 oz can tomato sauce
1/3 cup cider vinegar (not sure if Core or not?)

Fry ground beef in a little water, add garlic, and onion, till all cooked. Stir in rice and set aside. In bowl stir together sauce, vinegarand worcestershire. Layer 1/3 of cabbage in large oven proof pot. Arrange 1/2 of beef mixture. Drizzle with 1/3 sauce. Repeat above. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 and a half hours without stirring.

TOTALLY CORE PIZZA

1 c polenta
4 c water
1 T Olive Oil
Seasonings to taste ( basil, garlic, oregeno, salt pepper)

Mix all and cook 10-15 until is starts to get thick.

Pour into sprayed pizza pan. Let set until really firm (about 2 hours)

Bake 450 20-30 minutes. Turn off oven and leave it in for about 1 hour.

When ready to assemble the pizza:

I made my own core pizza sauce, using tomato sauce, tomates, and seasonings. Let it cook a little and kind of strained off some of the liquid!

Sauteed: onion, grn pepper, mushrooms, candian bacon,

Topped crust with sauce, veggie parm., veggie mix, black olives, FF cheddar, and soy moz. Bake again for 20 minutes or so.

I recently went thru my recipe box and found out some of my T&T favourite recipes were Core! I was so excited...(dosnt take much does it)

Shepherds pie
Boil potatoes, (enough for your family amount dosnt matter) drain and add skim milk to mash.

1 lb ground beef cooked with onion and garlic. drain any fat away.

Layer cooked ground beef in a baking dish, top with 1 can of corn niblets.

Top with the Core mashed potatoes. Put in oven at 350 degrees for about 15 mins. Enjoy


Macaroni and Cheese casserole

1 small box of ww macaroni , cooked untill soft.
Drain and put into a lg oven proof pot.
To macaroni , add 1 tin of diced tomatoes, 4-5 slices of ff cheese slices cut up. Mix mixture all together and put in 350 degree oven untill cheese is melted. Great comfort food...


Im adding this one as well but Im not sure if cornstarch is Core??

Tacos
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup of skim milk (maybe more if needed)
1/3 cup corn meal
dash salt
2 tbsp oil (good kind)
2 eggs

mix well and keep mixtured stirred , cornmeal tends to sink. Heat a non-stick small fry pan -do not add any more oil- pour in mixture and tip pan to coat bottom. When bottom of taco is cooked (dry looking) flip over and cook other side.
To each taco add taco meat filling, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, ff cheese,,,ff sour cream....whatever you want thats core.
We made these for a church fundraiser and people loved them.


Beef Rouladen

1 sirloin steak, cut into 3-4 pieces
pound the steak pieces till they are about 1/4 inch thick.

Take small non stick fry pan , and add a little water, garlic, onion, diced carrots and celery. Cook till soft.

Take the pounded steak piece and scoop some veggies and place on the steak. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Finish rest of rouladen.

Take the rolls and brown in non-stick pan, no oil added, till all sides are browned.
Place rolls in same fry pan (or casserole dish) and put lid on..VERY IMPORTANT to put lid on or they dry out! Add 1-2 cans of beef bouillion/ stock.

If you have used a fry pan, cook on medium-low heat for a hour to hour and a half. If you have placed in a casserole dish , heat oven to 350 degrees and cook for hour or hour and a half. I take my roll out that Im eating now,,,,and for rest of family I add gravy thickener and make a gravy with the beef broth for them. If you want to use the points for the gravy go ahead and enjoy.

I haven't made this yet but it sounds fabulous. I'll let you know how I like it. Since many of us like mexican food, I thought I'd post it before trying it.

Tamale Meatloaf

3 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or margarine
1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 pound browned ground beef or turkey
3/4 cup whole kernel corn, canned or frozen and thawed
2 eggs, well beaten
2 tablespoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 3 x 5-inch loaf pan and set aside.

In a skillet saute the onions in the oil until lightly browned. Add the tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil. Add the cornmeal gradually; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.

Remove mixture from heat and add the ground beef, corn, eggs, salt, pepper, paprika and chili powder. Mix thoroughly. Pat mixture into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Let set for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Serves 6 to 8.
