Tonight for Bible Study I made a couple family favorites to serve to our "Not-so-Small-Group." They were well received and can easily be doubled, tripled, or in our case, quadrupled to feed a crowd. Great to fall back on with all the holiday gatherings!
Sweet & Sour Sausage
1 can Pineapple Chunks, reserve juice
1/4 C Brown Sugar
2 Tbl. Cornstarch
1/4 C Water
1/4 C Cider Vinegar
2 tea. Soy Sauce
8 Smoked Sausages, Bias Cut
optional: 1 can Water Chestnuts; 1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a skillet. Blend in pineapple juice, water, vinegar, and soy sauce. Cook & stir until thickened. Stir in sausage, pineapple, water chestnuts, and bell pepper. Heat through. Serve over rice or egg noodles.
12-ounce jar Chili Sauce (or 1.5 C Homemade - recipe to follow)
11-ounce jar of Grape Jelly
2 Tbl. Lemon Juice
1 cube Beef Bouillon dissolved in 1/2 C hot water
1 package of frozen meatballs
Whisk together chili sauce, grape jelly, lemon juice, and bouillon/ Simmer on low until sauce starts to thicken. Add meatballs and cook until heated through. Serve over rice or egg noodles. This also works wonderfully in the crockpot!
Homemade Chili Sauce (a life-saver if you forget to pick some up at the store!)
32 oz Tomato Sauce
1 tea. Onion Powder
1/2 C Brown Sugar
2 tea. Salt
1/2 tea. Pepper
1/2 tea. Cinnamon
1/2 tea. Allspice
1/2 tea. Cloves
Mix together and simmer for 20 minutes. Any extra can be frozen!
