My friend Angie posted this recipe in Primitive & Rustic Crafts & Decorating Forum a really great forum...Click on the name to go there to join!


I like the crust better than the filling and so I made a 1/2 recipe more of the crust and then baked it in a cast iron skillet. Crust is fabulously crusty...Made one with the Blueberry Pie Filling and my grandson ate half of it as soon as it had cooled down some...Made an Apple Pie Filling one and then sprinkled cinnamon/sugar all over the top and that was also good, but our favorite is the Blueberry one...My grandson wants me to make a Strawberry Quicke Pie next!


1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 21 oz. can of fruit pie filling ( your choice)

Melt butter and pour into a 2 qt. casserole dish
Combine flour, sugar and milk together, stir til well blended
Pour over melted butter (DO NOT BLEND)
Add fruit filling. (DO NOT BLEND)
Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
Use toothpick in the center to check for doneness!
Even tho I added extra to the crust mix, it only took one hour to bake!


Adapted from Country Cookin' by the Monterey County CowBelles, 1975 edition

2 medium onions, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 pound pork sausage, finely chopped, or ground beef
1 cup uncooked rice
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 can bean sprouts, or 1 cup fresh bean sprouts, chopped
1 can water chestnuts, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
6 ounces chow mein noodles

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Over medium-high heat, sauté onions, celery, and green pepper until just cooked but not yet brown. Add meat and cook for 1 minutes, until no longer red. Transfer to a casserole dish. Add rice.
In a separate bowl, mix together Cream of Chicken, water, soy sauce, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts. Pour half into the bottom of the dish, layer rice on top, and pour the rest of the mixture over the rice. Add meat and onion mixture on the top.
Bake for 1 hour.
Sprinkle chow mein noodles on top before serving.
This is an easy casserole to fix for a fast Chinese supper...
