Times are tight. The economy’s in the toilet. You’re low on money and cooking skills. No worries! Betty can help you make culinary creations from just about anything. Behold- it’s Betty’s Budget Casseroles.
Zippy Beef seems like a cure for constipation rather than a recipe for dinner. Or perhaps it’s meant to induce vomiting after one ingests poison? No, you say? Let’s talk about some of the ingredients. Three-quarters cup of milk, followed by 2/3 cup of catsup. You don’t find pink tomato milk somewhat disgusting? The thought makes me involuntarily gag like a cat about to yak on your Persian rug.
These next two are from a sub-section of the Budget Casserole section entitled “Variety Meats- The Spice of Life.” You be the judge.
Touted by Betty as “an emergency shelf special”, let’s just call it what it is- Kitchen Crap Casserole. Emptying canned goods from the back of your cabinet into a casserole dish does not constitute a recipe. Kidney beans, lima beans, jar of spaghetti sauce with mushrooms, onions, cheddar cheese, and hot dogs. How long do you suppose Betty and her bakers spent in their research kitchens perfecting this culinary concoction? Did they try it with garbanzo beans first and think, “No, it needs more color. Let’s try the kidney beans with the lima beans.” What it lacks in appetite appeal it makes up for in color contrast.
Concerned your kids aren’t getting enough MSM (mechanically separated meat)? Here’s a way to beef up their consumption. Not only is the bologna in the casserole, it’s also added to the biscuits on top of the casserole. Just a sneaky little way for you to add some additional nitrates and preservatives to the kiddies
Bon Appetit, my broke friends!
