My mom based much of her cuisine on Campbell's Cream Of Mushroom Soup and Lipton's Onion Soup (sometimes at the same time, such as her superb meatloaf!)

I bet I could determine your age by your mom's recipes of this era LOL! --50.82.xxx.xx

One time I bought Cream of Mushroom but it was Clam instead. Happened to a lot of people and made the local news. It's made not far from here. So, no Campbells except sometimes the chicken soup for lunch. Grandmother made soup from marrow bones. She added an onion and a parsley root which she called something that sounded like "paydelly wortzel". It was tremendous and probably saved my life a few times. Some of the Campbell's soups taste like gourmet if you use a can of chicken broth in them instead of water. I cook chicken for my dogs and have broth left which I use to make my own broccoli soup, mushroom soup etc. Powdered onion soup was mixed with sour cream and used as "dip". I wish something had been made better because other than the soup, the food was awful. Everything was overcooked with no added spices. The best meal of the year was Thanksgiving. Ham was edible. Pork roast was edible. Pot roasted beef was edible. Anything fried was like shoe leather. Grandmother cooked and her mom had died when she was 12 so she made NO Hungarian food and did not really know how to cook. Very sad for all. I just had a microwaved potato, fried ham slice and am now going to eat my home made broccoli soup. --173.61.xxx.xx

Grandma made lots of good food. She cooked cabbage and pork roasts. Grandpa made the best welch rarebit (sp). Grandma showed me how to make an apple pie. She used lard for that. Great crusts --24.233.xxx.xx

With 7 of us Mom made Jello for every supper. Usually with a can of fruit cocktail stirred in.

I felt like a big kid when *I* got to choose the flavor and stir the ice cubes.

After Mom died I took home the metal Jello bowl.

Growing up as good German Lutherans, we had a lot of casseroles. Tuna noodle (aka Tuna hot dish), beanies and weenies, tater tots with beef and beans, etc. Almost all involved a can of some kind of cream soup.

Basically, 1-2x week we ate food that came out of a 13 x 9 pan. Such great leftovers the next day.

Then I married my wife whose family who were good Swedish Lutherans and we learned about Connecticut beef supper, pizza casserole, etc.

I not once ate anything cooked by either grandmother. Once my mother and I staed in my grandmother's house while the grandmother wasn't there and the only food in the house was case of canned vegetable soup. So we had canned vegetable soup for three meals a day.

To this day, the smell of it makes me feel queasy. --98.146.xxx.xxx

Starting at the age of five, I did all the cooking for my family.

Cream of mushroom soup: my favorite dish was green rice. I still make it, only not with canned soup or frozen spinach.

Cooked rice, frozen chopped spinach, green onions, canned cream of mushroom soup, cubes of cheddar cheese all baked together. --98.146.xxx.xxx

I remember that my dad would heat up a can of oyster soup for lunch. I wonder if Campbells even makes that anymore.

Can’t believe that no one has mentioned green bean casserole with cream of mushroom soup!

I have such fond memories of potlucks as a kid. Plate full of food followed by an even bigger plate full of dessert! --47.12.xxx.xx

I wish my family was normal. My Grandma used to make Rabbit stew with the rabbits that she raised ( and we played with). She would make “ lucky rabbit’s foot” keychains. She would actually be mounting their little dead feet onto the metal keychains at the table while we were eating them. No wonder I ended up a vegetarian as a teenager. --71.10.xxx.xxx

Wow, great timing on this thread. For some reason (100 + degree temperatures??), I bought egg noodles, cream of mushroom soup and canned chicken breast last night, to make a casserole this weekend. Now, I'll think of all of you (especially RentsDue) as I throw it all together tomorrow!

Green Bean Casserole was a staple of our holiday dinners. We still make it! But now we use fresh green beans, fresh cream and butter and garlic for the sauce instead of canned soup...however, Granddaughters still insist on the canned onion rings as a topping! --50.82.xxx.xx

I joined a weight loss group a few months ago and have only knocked off about 10 lbs. Do you have any idea how hungry this is making me???

BTW, I even use bacon grease in my fried apples! Love all kinds of Campbell's soup, especially the bean & bacon, but it doesn't taste the same as when I was a kid.

A chuck roast with mushroom soup, and dried onion soup sprinkled over it in a brown in bag, with potatoes & carrots cut up inside is about as good a meal as I have ever had in my life, baked in the oven about 350 for a couple of hours. Yum --71.219.xx.xxx

I still use both to bake a beef roast.

Line the pan with foil big enough to wrap up around the top and cover it. Put the beef roast in the pan. Spread a can of cream of mushroom soup on it, then sprinkle the dry onion soup mix on top. Cover loosely with foil & seal to keep steam in. Bake at 350/375 for about 45 min per pound. Makes its own gravy.

Easy and Delicious! --68.10.xxx.x

One day I prepared fresh vegetables for Mom and Aunt. When I placed the fresh veggies on the table they both looked at me and declared "They're raw!" The two of them promptly took the "raw" veggies to the stove, slathered with lots of butter, and cooked until mushy. Yes, generational difference of opinion, that's for sure! --67.164.xxx.xxx

I've always stayed away from casseroles. I'd rather have cereal for dinner than have a casserole touch my plate.
