I came up with my own version of Iowa MaidRites which also are called 'loose meat' sandwiches. Very versatile, leftover beef can be used for spaghetti or taco filling, or it can be frozen for later use.
Quick Lemon Crisps
This recipe was given to me years ago while visiting an aunt in Iowa. It is so easy that even my sister who can't bake to save her life, got them to turn out.
Bologna Salad Sandwich Spread I
A girlfriend's mom made this spread years ago for our Teen Club Luncheon back in Iowa in the 50's. I asked her to tell my Mom how to make it. I made the recipe for my kids while they were growing up & they still love it. Sweet relish and eggs round out the flavor of bologna in this simple but delicious spread. Serve it on cocktail toast, or use it in sandwiches. The amount of egg, creamy salad dressing and relish should be adjusted to taste.
Dutch stroopwafels (translation: molasseswaffles) Foreign people love them, so I translated this Dutch recipe to English.
Garlic Roasted Summer Squash
The simplest things are often the tastiest. At the height of summer here in Iowa we have a LOT of produce to choose from, and this is a nice and easy way to enjoy summer squashes and zucchini.
A raw ham is slow roasted, then seasoned with a sweet smoky sauce during the last hour to make a memorable meal with little actual work involved.
This yummy Dutch snack is sure to please! Seasoned veal dumplings are breaded and then fried. Replace ground veal with lean beef, chicken, or stuff with spiced Gouda!
