Mix-A-Meal Cookbook

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Do you want to spend less time in the kitchen and still make delicious meals for your family?  I know I do, especially in this July heat.  I attended another great class at Honeyville Grain today that was taught by the Mix-A-Meal ladies.  If you haven't heard of Mix-A-Meal, it is a cookbook with recipes for mixes that you make in bulk and then incorporate them into your daily cooking.

With Mix-A-Meal you will:
  • Save up to 90% of the cost of commercial mixes by making your own delicious and tasty mixes! 
  • Spend less time in the kitchen and enjoy that good old-fashioned taste.
  • Lower the preservative content in your foods.
  • Adjust mixes as necessary to fit special dietary needs.
  • Make a shelf-stable mix for traveling, camping trips or unexpected company.
  • Enjoy no-nonsense cleanup.  Just add water or a few simple ingredients.
  • Give fun and useful gifts for any occasion (Baby & Wedding showers, Christmas, Neighbor gifts,etc)
The Mix-A-Meal Ladies
I know I wouldn't use a mix for everything I make, but there are several mixes I feel would be handy to have on hand.  The ladies showed us the onion soup mix and then they made a dip and Swedish meatballs with a white sauce with the onion soup mix.  I am not an onion dip fan, but this tasted really good! It didn't have that processed, fake food taste to it.  
Onion Soup Mix 
Combine:
2/3 C dehydrated chopped onions
1/2 C beef bouillon
1/2 C dehydrated butter or margarine
2 T cornstarch
2 t onion powder
2 t parsley flakes
Mix well and store in a quart jar.  Use in any dry onion soup recipe. 1/3-1/4 C of the mix equals one package dry onion soup mix.

These are the mixes that I am going to put together:
  • Banana bread mix (I just canned 20 pints of bananas and this will make banana bread a snap to make!!!) 
  • Onion Soup Mix
  • Waffle Mix (my kids use this all the time by themselves to make breakfast)
  • Tortilla Mix (again, don't ask about the first time :) 
  • Hot Roll Mix
There are many more in the book, but these are the mixes I feel I would use. You can purchase the book on amazon.com  OR support your local business' and buy it at Honeyville Grain!!  

Honeyville does not compensate me for saying all the good things I do, I just honestly feel they are a wonderful company and they offer amazing products.  Honeyville is having the most incredible Prepare Your Ark Preparedness Fair on August 5th & 6th!!  They will have classes, giveaways (a Sun Oven, Volcano Stove, just to name a few!!), demonstrations, food & more!!  On Saturday there will be a free breakfast that includes, eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns, & drinks-all using food storage items!!
