With the cold weather and more snow on the way (thanks, Mr. Weatherman) I love fixing those tried and true recipes otherwise known as comfort food. Most of them are my mother’s recipes, and that’s probably why they’re so comforting; they’re a delicious reminder of family dinners way back when.
Today I’m sharing two of my mother’s recipes that have now become my family’s favorites: chicken divan and Mom’s meatloaf.
Because I can only include one printable recipe, I chose the chicken divan due to its longer list of ingredients and directions. You could easily fit the meatloaf recipe on a post-it note!
Printable recipe for chicken divan below.
1 lb ground beef
1 can French onion soup
12 to 14 saltines, crushed (or more for a drier meatloaf; I’ve used up to 20)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a regular loaf pan. Mix above ingredients in a large bowl and place in greased pan and bake for 1 hour or until cooked through. This is a very simple yet very yummy meatloaf. It’s a big hit in our family!
What does your family consider comfort food during the winter months? What recipe is a tried and true favorite handed down from your mom or grandmother?
