Spaghetti Casserole

A crock pot variation of everyone's favorite from market vendor Quarles Farms

1 1/2 pounds ground round
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (26 oz) jar tomato and basil pasta sauce (I used Newman's Own)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti, broken into pieces
3 cups (12 oz) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook ground round and onion in large skillet, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain meat, and return to skillet. Stir pasta sauce into beef mixture.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly 8 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and pepper.

Spoon one-third of meat mixture into lightly greased 5 quart slow cooker. Spread half of broken spaghetti over meat, pour half of white sauce over noodles, and sprinkle with 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Repeat layers once. Spread remaining meat mixture over cheese. Top with remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese.

Cover and cook on Low 4 hours. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with Parmesan cheese. Makes 6-8 servings.

Italian Meatloaf Recipe

A tasty traditional recipe from market vendor Quarles Farms

Ingredients:
•2 pounds extra lean ground beef
•2 cups soft bread crumbs, loosely packed
•1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, your favorite
•1 large egg, lightly beaten
•2 tablespoons dried chopped onion or 1/4 cup finely minced onion
•1 1/2 teaspoons salt
•1 teaspoon garlic powder
•1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs, crushed, or use a mixture of oregano and basil
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
•3 tablespoons spaghetti sauce
•2 to 3 slices Mozzarella cheese, about 2 to 3 ounces
Preparation:
Fold a 30-inch long piece of foil in half lengthwise. Place in bottom of a slow cooker with both ends hanging over top edge of cooker. I also put a piece of crumpled foil in the bottom to keep the meatloaf out of the fat. The foil strip will make it much easier to remove the meatloaf when it's done.
In a large bowl, mix ground beef with bread crumbs, 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, egg, onion, salt, garlic powder, Italian herbs, and pepper until well blended. Shape into a loaf. Place in slow cooker. Spread 3 tablespoons spaghetti sauce over the loaf.

Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on LOW for 5 to 6 hours, or until juices run clear. Top loaf with cheese slices, overlapping, and continue to cook (turn to HIGH if necessary) for 15 to 25 minutes longer.

Use ends of foil to lift out meat loaf and transfer to a serving platter.

Granny's Delights

Welcome to  Grannys Delights, your source for old fashioned home made quality products including potato bread, potato bread rolls, fruit breads, the very finest in vegetables as well as all types of canned items.

We developed our  products after many years of serving these items to our friends and family. We had always shared the bounty of our garden with family and then started selling the excess at our local farmers market. We realized how much we enjoyed this and continued to expand. Finally we decided to do this full time. We obtained our home based processor license as well as our home based microprocessor licensed as required by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

We are definitely a family organization as our grown children help us in this venture. Our summer is a busy time with 16 hours days, six days a week. We always reserve Sunday for a time of worship, family and some relaxation. Winter is a little more relaxed with time spent planning for the upcoming busy season and experimenting with some new recipes.

We sell our products at farmers markets here in Kentucky. Under the terms of our current licenses with the Commonwealth of Kentucky we are only allowed to sell our products at farmers markets, on our premises or at certified roadside stands. Later we may continue to expand by obtaining a necessary licenses in order to sell our products over the internet. While we may not ship our produts out of state, you can certainly order our products and then pick them up at one of our markets.
