Last night, I tweaked a recipe for my Hungry Jill Casserole, a combo of barbecue beans, TVP, and fluffy whole wheat biscuits:
The recipe is another adaptation of an old omni dish called Hungry Jack Casserole. Years ago, my mom tore the recipe out of a magazine ad for Hungry Jack biscuits. It called for canned Hungry Jack brand biscuits, ground burger, beans, and cheese. She made it every once in awhile for dinner and I loved it!
My version uses my recipe for whole wheat buttermilk biscuits, chopped into little half-moons and baked on top of the beans and TVP "beef." This time, I topped it with Cheddar Teese, but I've made it without cheeze too ... it's good either way.
By the way, the Cheddar Teese is quite tasty. Not as good as the mozzerella, but still good.
On the side, I made another cookbook dish — Mess O' Greens with Turnips:
It's collards and diced turnips cooked in my special way with plenty of hot sauce and smoky bacon flavor. My Granny always puts turnips in her greens and the two veggies complement one another quite well.
As I type, it's only hours away from the Vernal Equinox — the first day of Spring!!!! Happy Springtime everybody! And Friday is also National Meatout Day! Yea for vegetarians!
