    Default Recipes for a Batchelor XP

    Long story short, there is a member of our congregation who's wife insisted on divorcing him (despite him trying anything for reconciliation). Since she decided to divorce him (but wanted to have them just keep living in the same house), he decided (with the encouragement of the entire town) to move out and stop doing her bidding.

    What he really needs is a cookbook of hearty, simple meals. He wants things like casseroles and the like. I looked through the old cookbooks I had, and none of them are suitable. So I'm going to make one.

    I've got a chili recipe, cheeseburger casserole, and oven stew. I'm hoping you have some recipes for other casseroles and other hearty, simpler meals. I don't know if he has a crock pot or not. Pork, beef, chicken, pasta or soup recipes. Think Iowa farmer.

    Thanks in advance.

    This is one of my favorites, except I use chicken:

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
    6 pork chops
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    1 cup water
    2 pounds potatoes, cubed
    salt and pepper to taste

    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    In a large bowl mix chicken soup and mushroom soup with water; whisk well. Place pork chops in a large baking dish. Arrange potatoes on top, then pour soup mixture over entire dish. Bake uncovered for 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

    Here is another similar one that is great (it can easily be modified too, I don't usually use the french onion soup, just substitute some broth):

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
    4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
    4 thick cut boneless pork chops
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
    1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed French onion soup
    1 (8 ounce) package shredded Monterey Jack cheese

    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan with sliced potatoes. Arrange the pork chops on top of the potatoes.
    In a bowl, stir together the cheddar cheese and French onion soups. Pour the soup over the pork chops.
    Cover pan and bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until internal pork temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Sprinkle chops with Monterey Jack cheese and serve.

    Here is an easy recipe:

    INGREDIENTS
    2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    2 ounces Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons teriyaki suace
    2 tablespoons bacon bits
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees
    Place chicken in a baking dish. Slather mustard evenly over chicken, then pour teriyaki suace evenly over all. Sprinkle with bacon bits, then cover with cheese.
    Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes

    Thanks ladies! I don't know if he has a crockpot, but I'm going to include some recipes because crockpots can be cheap to get ahold of and I have and old one if he'd like it.
