Tomato, Potato and Cheese Pie
(no ratings)

This is a wonderful meat alternative and I eat this as a main meal dish with salad or veggie. A layer of cooked shredded potatoes w/chopped onion holds a tasty tomatoes and cheese filling. Cook the potatoes the night before or earlier in the day. Add a fruit cup too! Very filling and yummy!

This dish is really very good and low in fat. The sweetness of the pineapple makes this a wonderful dish. Add some white or brown rice to give it an Asian feel.

Inspired by an old Vermont "Sugarbush" recipe in which the baked beans are sweetened with local maple syrup. Be sure the beans are par-cooked before mixing with the other ingredients! Yummy as a side dish, for cookouts or as a main meal with rice!

This is a very old recipe that is very good and wonderful to come home to featuring chubby stuffed cabbage rolls in sweet tomato sauce. They come out much moister when cooked in the crock pot. Ground beef, lean is used here but you can also make a lower cholesterol version using Low Salt canned red kidney beans (or preferred bean) to 1 cup corn frozen rather than ground beef. I often make half of each and add them all to the pot.

Cookbook creator says: Yummy.....does need a bit of sugar however and since I am allergic to pumpkin spice I add ginger/cinnamen instead. Tastes pretty much the same.
