Random recipes

I've shared recipes on here before. I thought, for a random post, I'd share a few more with you. These are some of my favorites. I may have posted them before, but I didn't see them in the tags. I didn't tag all my posts, so for all of you older blog followers if these are repeats I'm sorry.

Sauerkraut Bake

1 jar sauerkraut
1 kielbasa, cut into 1/4” slices
Two apples, sliced
1 can new potatoes/2 c. cooked Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2” chunks

Preheat oven to 350 F (177 C). Drain sauerkraut. Put all ingredients into a medium casserole dish and mix together. Place in oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.

Cheddar Biscuits

2 c all-purpose flour
1 T baking powder
2 tsp white sugar
½ tsp cream of tartar
¼ tsp salt
½ c melted butter
1 c milk
1 ½ c grated medium cheddar (I've also used sharp. You can use mild, but the sharper cheddar stands out more.)

Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C). In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Stir in butter and milk until moistened. Add cheddar cheese. Drop batter on a lightly greased cookie sheet by the tablespoon. Bake in preheated oven until golden on the edges, about 8 to 12 minuted. Serve warm.

Texas Brownie Sheet Cake

1 c butter
1 c water
¼ c cocoa
2 c sugar
2 c flour
1/8 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
½ c sour cream


½ c butter
¼ c cocoa
¼ c plus 2 T milk
1 lb powdered sugar, sifted (also called confectioners' sugar)
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp mint extract, optional (I've used mint extract and almond extract for this)

Cake: Preheat oven to 350 F (177 C). Combine 1 c butter, water, and ¼ c cocoa in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until butter melts. Add sugar, flour, salt, eggs, soda, sourcream, and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well. Pour into a 15x10.1 inch jelly roll pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Frost while still hot.

Frosting: Combine ½ c of butter, ¼ c of cocoa, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add powdered sugar and ½ tsp of vanilla, and if desired additional flavoring. Pour over the cake. Spread to cover the hot cake.

  1. No sauerkraut for me, thanks. But the rest sounds great. I don't know what's better, the brownies or the cheese biscuits.

    No, definitely the brownies. Thanks for sharing!
