    I found a page with some fun recipes on it. I was very surprised when I read the Depression Bread recipe. The picture looks like homemade bread but I am curious if the three ingredients will produce what was pictures.

    The recipe for Poor Man's meal looks like something the boys would love and I could also substitute sausage or kielbasa if wanted.


    All these were posted on Little Things Depression Era Dishes: 9 Budget Recipes That Are Still Good Enough To Eat Today but if you look at the pictures, there are links back to where they borrowed the picture from. The link under the picture of Hoover Stew leads you to a page that has other interesting recipes.

    Making potato soup tonight with buttermilk biscuits...

    Three to four medium to large russet potatoes pealed and cut into bite sized pieces
    1/2 Meduim onion, diced
    Two stalks celery, diced
    1 quart plus one cup whole milk
    2 Tablespoons butter

    Boil potatoes, onion and celery in salted water until potatoes are fork tender and drain
    Add milk and return to medium heat
    Add butter
    Cook, but do not boil, until heated through and butter melts
    Add salt and pepper to taste

    I make my buttermilk Biscuits with Bisquick, the directions are on the box. I roll the dough out to 1/2" and cut biscuits with a whiskey bucket (tumbler), but any large mouthed glass will work.
