My Great-great grandmother's recipe, modified over 4 generations. I still can't believe it was FINALLY written down! The gumbo should be thin but not watery. P.S .-- I have a 3-gallon pot that I use to cook this and it is usually about 3/4 full. (Make sure you know the basics of making roux before you try this. If the roux is not dark brown, the gumbo will not have the rich taste necessary to give it that special taste). This is good for several days. It can also be frozen and reheated. Enjoy!
This is a wonderful one-pan meal that you can add to in many ways. You can substitute refried beans for the meat to make it for vegetarians. You can use any type of cheese, meat, or peppers you want. That is what makes this a excellent meal. It's great the next day reheated. Serve on bed of lettuce and top with sour cream and picante sauce.
I wanted to make a truly Southern meatloaf like my 'Redneck' buddies make sometimes when I visit. They never wrote the recipe down. This is my best approximation of Southern meatloaf. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. You can serve this Southern meatloaf either hot or cold.
Meaty, cheesy, all-in-one meal for the entire family!
Your favorite bourbon (along with cider, orange juice and Worcestershire sauce) gives extra flavor to these tasty smoked ribs.
Handed down to me from my mom. This is vaguely Italian. This stuff is meant to be made by the gallons and to feed the entire neighborhood. It sticks to your ribs, and is hearty and warming. You can add red pepper flakes for a bit more kick. I usually add a little more salt and pepper for my own taste. This makes about 18 cups (My best guess. It makes a WHOLE lot) and it freezes well. I make the entire thing and freeze portions in large plastic resealable bags. Sauce for the rest of the month!
Pants, then shoes, is one important order to remember. The other is the proper way to assemble Frito Pie. See below to make sure you're not doing it wrong.
This is a summertime favorite. Traditionally a southern dish, this is a good recipe for picnics or pot luck lunches. This particular recipe is easy to make and takes little time to prepare.
You can use any kinds of cheeses you want, I've listed my usual favorites, just remember too much cheese is too much cheese, if there is such a thing? Just for fun I sometimes boil food coloring into the pasta, gives it a weird yet neat looking effect.
Cheap, delicious and filling. Kids love it.
Spicy stuffed potatoes that will fill you up right, Southern style! The spiciness is adjustable, of course, to suit everyone's tastes. Takes some time to prepare, but well worth the effort!
Being born and reared in Alabama, I've learned a lot of traditional Southern recipes along the way. This burger is a Southern food smorgasbord, including beef patties prepared with dale's Seasoning, fried green tomatoes, and Alabama white sauce that I've used to dress what I call "the Southern Sampler Slaw," made with sweet potatoes, peaches, apples and Vidalia onion. And it's all sandwiched between two hoecakes. Now that's Southern cookin', y'all!
