SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

Recently when doing some searching for more easy onboard recipes using Jiffy Cornbread Mix (recipe here) I came across several recipes for Cowboy Casserole. I had made a couple of batches of my own clone mix for making Cornbread (recipe here) to bring onboard so thought, why not make this into a Sailor’s Casserole instead using our Omnia stove-top oven?… afterall, Captain prepared our last two dinners, it’s time for the Galley Kat to pull her weight.     SAILOR’S CASSEROLE 1…

ITALIAN EASTER PIE

ITALIAN EASTER PIE

Because of where we live, April has yet to be a time when we are on the water. But someday within the next few years there will be an occasion to enjoy some Easter treats onboard. Last year I compromised with my own galley version of something a bit simpler… …and a little green eggs and ham brunch …and then with all the delicious looking recipes for baked hams and scalloped potatoes, I broke down and made a pseudo-traditional Easter…

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

Every time I make shepherd’s pie it’s different. That’s the beauty of this dish. Sometimes I use ground up leftover roast beef and gravy, sometimes ground lamb. For our onboard, tiny galley life it’s easier when I use leftovers as I can make extra mashed potatoes one night and use them to top the pie the next night – economy of efforts. Today I decided to go all-out Irish and make the potato topping a mixture of mashed parsnips, potatoes…

HAM and SCALLOPED POTATO CASSEROLE

HAM and SCALLOPED POTATO CASSEROLE

WHEN EASTER HAS PASSED… All this talk about baked hams and scalloped potatoes has left me craving Easter food. Not those chocolate eggs but the real food of which childhood memories are made. I’m talking about rich creamy scalloped potatoes.. I don’t have my Mom’s recipe but I do remember that she used to also make the best new potatoes in a creamy parsley sauce. So I’m adding parsley. I’m not sure if she added cheese to her sauce –…

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #8

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #8

This next recipe is a standard… classic comfort food… and, of course, an easy fix up for the simplest of galleys… My Mom made it using up leftovers from Sunday’s roast beef dinner. I in turn made it for my kids so my recipe usually included ‘hiding’ lots of veggies in the mix. The classic version uses mainly onions, garlic and sometimes corn. Regardless…add…subtract… the end result is pure tasty memories of childhood…. sometimes called Cottage PIe… sometimes – Shepherd’s…

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

Several months ago I found an interesting post from one of my favourite bloggers, Lindsay of A Pinch of Yum. She had created a recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Sauce which she transformed into a delicious rich-tasting Alfredo-like concoction without the scary calories and fat content.   I made it this summer at home, stashed some in the freezer, and took the rest onboard for an evening meal. For you lucky boaters who have a blender onboard this would be an…
