"Everyone loved these when I made them for a wedding shower. I had rice Chex on hand so used those and some tropical dried fruit in place of the pineapple. I also added a little shredded coconut (in pantry and I couldn't pass up using it up). Almost everyone wanted the recipe and there were NO leftovers to take home - just the empty dish!!"

"Always looking for more m & c recipes to get ideas from (and add too - sorry, I'm a Food Network junkie!!). I added 4 oz. of cream cheese (extra in the frig. from a dessert), a little crushed red pepper (as always!) and crushed saltines on top before cooking. It's cold and very windy here in Nebraska today so I used ideas from the 20-Minute M & C recipe in today's email and this for my hubby for lunch. Got big thanks all around - our two dogs got some of the leftovers (don't worry I always check with the vet before handing over "people food")."

"I've been making this for 20+ years and vary the layers to what's on hand or what's the freshest or yummiest looking at the farmers market. Miracle Whip is a must in mine along with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, radishes, cheese, peas (sometimes fresh from the pod from the farmers market) - I also add water chestnuts, boiled eggs and black olives sometimes. Always a hit and like another person mentioned, NO LEFTOVERS EVER!!"

"EXCELLENT! A wonderful start/method to add what's on hand in the frig. I had whole wheat bow tie pasta so used that and added 1 tsp. of curry since we love it and sprinkled sliced black olives and capers on top - YUM! Next time I'm thinking of adding fresh cilantro or mint from the garden for summer get togethers - and fresh tomatoes & salsa peppers from the garden as well! I am SO ready for summer!"

Love m & c! I added crushed red pepper (we like comfort food with a zing!)and blue cheese crumbles we had on hand (we buy it in bulk at Sam's so it's always around to add to salads, soups, AND mac & cheese!!). I also added a tsp of freshly prepared horseradish from the frig. EXTRA YUM!! Thanks for the base and an idea for a quick, easy lunch for me to make for my hubby when he came home from work at lunch time!

Reuben Casserole

I've been doing a similar casserole for 20+ years! I tried it when I was 20 and had all the Reuben ingredients except the corned beef - I still don't eat red meat except on St. Pat's Day!- and used boneless chicken thighs and topped with 1000 dressing the last 10 minutes of cooking - before I added the Swiss cheese. It turned out fantastic! I have since used boneless/bone in chicken thighs, legs, breasts, etc. and it always get total raves from even the pickiest eaters!! Try it served with warm rye/pumpernickel bread and butter - delish!!

oops! I forgot to say in may last rating that I do not use potatoes most times I make my version or just use a little potato O'Brien frozen hash browns (chunky not shredded) and I also use refrigerated horse radish for the extra kick along with stone ground mustard with the seeds. It tends to fulfill my husbands corned beef (or chicken) hash fix with the added bonus of all of the other flavor boosters!

Awesome! I eat red meat 2-3 times around St. Pat's. The flavor of all the veggies with the corned beef is mouth wateringt - though I do make/eat the combo because the veggies take on such a fabulous tast from the corned beef and I eat 2-3 times more of the veggies. Try the left over CB for Rueben sandwiches the next day or later that night if you're serving it originally for lunch/early afternoon with 1000 Island Island dressing and sour kraut with caraway seeds and melted swiss on rye - EXCELLENT! Even for this 99% non-red meat eater!! Oh, and the cabbage is a must in my household because it's an annual grand slam that we get only around th 17th of March!

YUMMY!! I've been making tky/ck burgers waaaaaay longer than they became popular since I don't eat/prefer beef. To help bind burgers for outdoor/indoor grill, I add an beaten egg and also freeze the patties for about 10-15 before throwing them on the grill - they stay together better. Also a grill pan works well. Lots of possibilities with subs/additions to what veggies, seasonings/herbs, etc. that are on hand in frig and/or pantry
