Not sure why I’d do this? See here for an explanation.
- Jacketed potatoes, for up to 2 hours.
- Oven fried chicken, 400 for up to 1 hour.
- Mexican Green peppers, 400 for 45 minutes.
350 for 30 minutes:
- Ham slice, 25 minutes
- Candied sweet potatoes, 30 minutes
- spinach tart or tomato flan, 30 minutes
The 400 meal: The chicken usually works for 2 meals. The pepper recipe is for 5 peppers, although you could no doubt do 2 or 4 or 6 for that matter….
The 350 meal: The spinach tart uses a pie shell, the tomato flan does not. Also, spinach is available (here) first thing in the spring and in fall, the tomatoes are only available in summer, so that could easily affect why I’d choose one or the other.
I’d love to try doing this as an experiment!
However, I do NOT have the peppers, corn to stuff them with, the ham, cottage cheese (for the spinach tart), spinach or tomatoes. Given the current state of things, due to Corona, I have no idea when I will be able to just buy those again! When I can? I’ll be happy to do this as an experiment. If I do?
I’ll post a link to the write up here.
I’m going to do the 400 degree meal tonight. However, I didn’t find a ham slice yesterday at the market. The only sliced ham was sliced for sandwiches, not something I’d want to put in a 350 oven for 30 minutes!
I’ll have to modify the recipes to suit what I have, but I think I can manage! This is Friday, so my meal is supposed to be a double meat dish, that feeds us tonight and Sunday night too. I have 3 thighs in a freezer container, thawing. We’ll eat 2 tonight.
We’ll have dirty rice for lunch, it’s left over from earlier this week.
And I might make a burrito bowl from the last thigh on Sunday.
I tried this! I wrote about what worked and didn’t here.
