Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Kathy's Chipped Beef

beef, breakfast

1 pkg dried beef (i use
1 budding's)
2 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk*
1 salt (it won't need much)
1 white pepper to taste
1 pinch dry mustard

*(for a more authentic military flavor, use canned evaporated milk) Remove the beef from the package, and tear into shreds. Melt the butter, and briefly saute the beef in the butter (it should just become slightly crispy). Add the flour, and stir until the whole mess congeals slightly and begins to look a little like wet beach sand (DO NOT brown the flour). Stir in the milk, and whisk until smooth. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and dry mustard. Simmer briefly until thickened and all the floury taste is removed. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, biscuits or toast. NOTE: For a better, but distinctly non-military version of this dish, toss in a couple of generous handfuls of grated cheddar cheese, and a few grains of cayenne pepper. Kathy in Bryan, TX
