Rumbledethumps

(Scottish Recipe)

1 small cabbage head
4 medium potatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1 TBS. Butter
Grated Cheddar Cheese

My grandmother made this every Monday, which was always her "warsh" day.  On Sunday she would make roast beef and gravy.  Then the leftovers were served with Rumbledthumps.

Shred cabbage and simmer until tender.  Peel potatoes and cut into cubes, cook until tender.  Mash potatoes lightly.  Sauté onions in butter and add to potatoes, combine with cabbage, add salt and pepper to taste.  Mix all together well.  Turn into a greased casserole.  Sprinkle with cheese, place in a 375 F oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese melts and browns lightly.

Beaver Valley Picnic Beans

Serves 50

Combine the following in a large Granite roaster:

15 pounds prepared Great Northern Beans (prepare as you choose)
an acceptable shortcut for today's cooks would be 6 - 40 oz. cans of Great Northern Beans

1 lb. bacon, diced

32 ounces of tomato catsup

1 onion, chopped

2 cups brown sugar

seasoning of your choice (salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, etc.)

Mix all ingredients well and bake covered, in a 325 degree F oven for 1/2 hour.  Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F and continue cooking for a minimum of 6 hours.

4 slices white bread, cubed
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Saute onion in margarine, add bread and seasoning, mix into potatoes.  Bake in greased casserole 1 hour at 350 degrees F.  This is a good recipe for leftover potatoes, after all the stuffing is gone.  Serves 4.
