Chicken Fried Steak and Pan fried Potatoes

October 13, 2010 Leave a comment

I sent Mike to the store to buy meat, sometimes I know what I want and sometimes I tell him to surprise me.  Well he came home with some discounted Top Round steak.  We had just seen a Drive in Dinners and Dives where they made Chicken Fried Steak… so I started searching online.  I can never find just one recipe, I always find a couple and combine them.

Meatloaf and Sliced Baked Potatoes

What is better than meatloaf?  Meatloaf sandwiches the next day?

My family loves meatloaf, I love meatloaf… what is not to like?  Meat, ketchup…. okay I know some people don’t like ketchup so use BBQ sauce.  I don’t make fancy meatloaf with cheese in it or bbq sauce.  I have tried different recipes but the kids always wants this meatloaf.

Now with meatloaf there are tons of things you can use as a filler.  I use breadcrumbs and will always use breadcrumbs (or hot dog bun crumbs) it’s what I like.  Now I have heard of people using oatmeal, crackers, stale cereal…. and many other things.  Use what you want, but know it does change the texture and flavor.  I normally use white bread but we once had some potato buns left over and I used them, I could totally tell a difference.

Tater Tot Casserole

I was all ready to make Bubble Pizza tonight but I had no biscuits to make the bubbles!  So on the fly I decided on another favorite, Tater Tot Casserole.  Which really was perfect because someone at work was just asking me for this recipe.  And what is not to like about it?  It has meat and potatoes in it, perfect mid-west food!

I know two people who love it so much they sometimes ask for it as their birthday meal.  One is my son Connor (age 8 ) who was in heaven tonight when he found out I made this.  The other one is my brother Kory (age 33 and single ladies) who if he heard we were having it would have dropped what he was doing to come over and have some.  I love it now, but when I was a kid… no way.  I made myself choke it down.  I don’t know what it was I didn’t like, but I am glad my kids like it!
