My brother-in-law putting in a standing order for my 7-Layer salad.
Serves: As many as you need...it's a salad just add more
Head of lettuce - chopped
Small bag of frozen peas - thawed
One onion - finely chopped
Shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb. bacon - cooked & crumbled
Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise
3-4 large eggs - hard boiled & finely chopped
In a 13x9 dish, layer lettuce, evenly spread peas and onion over lettuce top with mayo and frost it like a cake. Add a layer of cheese, then bacon and finish with eggs.
Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Great dish make the night before.
I also make the green bean casserole. I use the recipe right off the can of French's Fried Onions.
Original Green Bean Casserole
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can CAMPBELL'S® Cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 cup milk
1/8 tsp. black pepper
2 (9 oz. each) pkgs. frozen cut green beans, thawed*
1 1/3 cups FRENCH'S® French Fried Onions
1. MIX soup, milk and pepper in a 1 1/2 -qt. baking dish. Stir in beans and 2/3 cup French Fried Onions.
2. BAKE at 350°F for 30 min. or until hot.
2. STIR. Top with remaining 2/3 cup onions. Bake 5 min. until onions are golden.
Tip: You may substitute 2 cans (14 1/2 oz. each) cut green beans, drained or 4 cups fresh, cooked cut green beans.
My uncle will only eat my Deviled Eggs so I end up making those too. I don't really have a recipe for those though. Just eyeball everything and taste often.
I also make a dessert but I like to make something we haven't had before. I leave the pies (and traditional goodies) to my Grandma because it wouldn't be Christmas without those!!
