i One-Dish Meals
` - ` ` By Florence Imlay
· t i _The term, one-dish meal, is applied to a combination of th_e
e substantial foods of the meal into one dish. Such dishes usually
contain the protein—meat, eggs or cheese; starch—potatoes, rice
or macaroni; and at least a part • the vegetable. Sometimes the
protein and carbohydrate are combined into one dish and a
vegetable is served with it. One of the chief values of this type
. O of dish is that it may be prepared in the early part of a busy
1 day and cooked or reheated just before mealtime. It is also
a good way of using left-overs. There are many recipes for one-
e dish meals. However, the ingenious housewife will use her
knowledge of cookery, food values and Havorsto prepare new
  one—dish meals or to utilize the left-overs from one meal in appe-
i tizing and attractive combinations to be served within the next
{ twenty-four hours.
A. Too many starehy foods such as potatoes, rice and macaroni,
should not be used in one dish.
B. White sauce or meat stock make a good base for baked
a dishes.
C. Have one strong flavor predominate, such as carrot, turnip
or cheese, with several other flavors in smaller quantity or
milder form. ‘ K
  D- The aeidity of the tomato adds much to most dishes, eilhC1‘
as a part of them or as a sauce. t ~. V
E. Color may be obtained from foods used, as carrots. peas,
tomatoes, ctc., or by the addition of a small amount of
i Qrecn Pepper or pimiento.

bacon, onion juice, finely chopped parsley, bay leaf, etc.  
A. Milk or a thin white sauce may be used in place of meat  A
B. Wlieii substituting for a meat, another meat with the same  
quality of iiavor should be used, such as chicken in place of '· 
tenderloin or fish.  ip
C. Diced potatoes may be used in place of rice or macaroni.  
D. Vegetables of similar texture and quality of flavor should  
be used in making a substitution, such as peas for string i.
E. Toast may be used in place of a bed of rice or macaroni as  ·. _»
in goldenrod eggs or macaroni with cheese sauce.  
F. Shredded cabbage may be used in place of lettuce.  it
A. Vegetables retain their COlO1' ·and crispness best when cooked  
a short time.  ,’
B. Milk and egg dishes should bo cooked at a low temperature.  
C. Meat is tenderer and the fiavor better, especially in tough  i
cuts, when cooked at a medium temperature.  
D. Such dishes as macaroni loaf, salmon loaf, etc., are moister  V
when steamed than when baked. Ti 
E. Baked dishes made with a white sauce base may be pre-  i
vented from curdling by placing the baking dish in a pan  j
of hot water while baking.  
F. A covering of browned buttered crumbs gives an attractive  
appearance to a baked dish.  it A
A. Salad prepared from crisp raw vegetables.  ii
