Several years ago, my youngest daughter was part of an American Girl Club through a homeschool program we were using. While studying the doll Kit Kitteredge, who’s story takes place during the Great Depression, she was given this recipe to try as part of their project.
During the Great Depression, food was scarce and fancy ingredients were hard to come by. Many home cooks were forced to come up with new and creative ways of using the supplies they had on hand.
It wasn’t possible to run to the grocery store if they were out of milk. Instead, they utilized what they had available.
Lucky for us, they came up with a great deal of delicious recipes that are simple to make without costing a fortune for ingredients. And, if you’re anything like me, you’re always grateful for any quick, easy recipe that the whole family loves.
Am I right?
Over the years, this Depression Dinner recipe has become one of our favorites. It’s the perfect meal for a cold or rainy night.
Hearty enough for Dad and yummy enough to satisfy even the pickiest of children. It’s simple and fast to make, too, taking less than an hour throw together and cook.
Plus, it only requires 5 ingredients (not counting salt & pepper)!
So, the next time you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner to throw together, give this Depression Dinner Recipe a try – your family will love it!
