Ok, I love to cook. “Obs” as some of my young friends would say. Or I wouldn’t have a food blog. But sometimes you want something you can toss together with your eyes closed. Something simple and fast and easy – and maybe nostalgic? That’s where this Porcupine Skillet Dinner comes in.
Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.
This really is an old-school classic meatloaf. Just plain cookin’ & hardly anything to the making it of it at all. It’s one of those recipes that really makes you appreciate the taste of FOOD.
Did you grow up with this Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy was out way back when in the ’60’s! I guess it doesn’t matter, because you can serve your Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip with either – or with other things, too. Maybe some veggies or those little crostini you can buy at the store. I dunno, whatever you want. I’ll have my Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix with chips!
Lipton Onion Soup Mix. While the rest of the world might not be familiar with this product, I’m betting there’s very few in the US who didn’t grow up with it – and the old familiar recipes. I didn’t want to shell out the bucks for a small box with a packet or two, so I made my own Homemade Onion Soup Mix when I decided to revisit some of those old classics.
