First up: applesauce. I can still remember what it was like to come home from school and smell those apples cooking down. It meant warm applesauce for supper. Only on that first night did we have the applesauce warm. It wasn't until my husband (pre-husband days, actually) put applesauce in a pan to warm it as a side dish one night when I was visiting his apartment that it ever occurred to me that applesauce could be warm EVERY time you had it. Doy. (It's still best the first night, though.)
1 cup milk, 2 eggs, and half a cup Bisquick poured over the top, bake at 400' for 30 minutes, let stand for 5 more minutes with a little cheese sprinkled on top and dinner is served. (Sorry, no picture of the finished product. Everyone came in the door just as it was coming out of the oven. )
We had an exchange student from France once who thought this was the most awesome dish EVER. She photographed it along with the page out of the recipe book.
What's your 'go to' recipe that uses left overs or staples and causes everyone to have seconds?? Do tell.
