CHINESE PIE WITH CRISPY ONION


CHINESE PIE WITH CRISPY ONION

What the world calls Shepherd’s Pie my mother called Chinese Pie. It wasn’t till I left home that I discovered what I thought was Chinese all this time was something else. Named after Shepherd’s herding their animals to slaughter. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want…something about not fearing the price on your head!

Well, this is my version, not unlike Mom’s, just a few differences. She always used fresh potatoes and ground beef and onions topped with creamed corn, then the potato. It was always good – leftovers too!

I’m trying crispy onion for the first time ever as a topper.

One chore I dreaded as a kid was peeling potatoes. I used a paring knife instead of a peeler to make it quicker. My father would yell at me for cutting away half the potato with the peel. Oh well, then along came instant!! My kind of invention. Of course I still do prefer fresh mashed, but over the years improvements were made in the instant category. Yea!

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

We use the other white plant meat for this fine American-Italian casserole. Veg veal! I think I’ve had veal once or twice aside from a luncheon sandwich meat called veal loaf back in the long ago days. I recall it not having much flavor – not the loaf that tasted more like bologna, but the fresh pounded cutlets.

Mild in flavor, soft when ground, which is what we did here. We, meaning me. I figured I must have had some divine or other intervention help on this one, since I nailed it first time. On my birthday too! Had no idea I’d be cooking today. Must be that Alpha Lipoid Acid I’m taking that fixes fatigue. It works.

What a treat. OMGod does this have meat in it? And the sauce!! All so rich, all so wonderful!

Makes 14 stuffed cannelloni
