Hello everyone. I have a crowd pleaser if you have a crockpot. When I have a large crowd, I make my mom's shredded beef sandwiches. Any inexpesive, large roast will work (best bought and frozen when mega meat sales happen in your area), 1 package of Auju season mix (found around gravy mixes in your store), 2 cans of mushrooms and 2 cups of water. Place your roast in a crockpot, mix your Auju season package with 2 C. warm water and pour over the roast. Place lid on and cook on low for 9-12 hours. I do this the night before. Take the meat ouf of the crockpot and shred with 2 forks. Place back in crockpot, add the canned mushrooms, stir and let heat through until ready to serve on buns.

If you go away ffrom that reunion hungry its your own fault. That is a lot of food.

Good morning all, Coll how do you make your scalloped potatoes? I really like them and always looking for diff ways of making them.
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

My recipe is so simple. The amounts will vary of course depending on how much you are making.

You need:
salt & pepper

Fill a large kettle about 1/2 way with cold water.
Peel and slice potates and place in the water.
Chop the onions finely.
Cut the bacon into small dice.
potatoes, onions, bacon salt & pepper
Do this until the baking dish (or roaster) is almost full.
Make a rue from butter, flour and milk. Melt the bettur in a sauce pan, add flour, starting with 3-4 tablespoons. If the flour makes a stiff ball add more butter. You want a nice paste but not stiff. Slowly add the milk, continuously stirring. When it is thickened pour over the potatoes, moving potates aside so that it seeps down around them.

Bake at 350* until potatoes are tender.

A quicker method is to layer it like this-
potatoes, onion, bacon, salt & pepper, small dots of butter here and there, the sprinkle with a spoon of flour. Repeat until dish is almost full. Pour milk over, cover with foil if desired and bake 350* until tender.

If you make them, let me know how you like them.

I got so many compliments on them at the party. That was the first time I had ever made them for a crowd.
You just have to adjust for how big a dish or roaster you are using. I thik it took 20 lbs of potates for two large roasters.
