I wanted more clams, so I used 2 10 oz cans and about 6 oz of mozzarella cheese. This is a great white pizza. When we make pizza at home it is always white pizza. This will now go into our white pizza rotation.

We used Ted';s Montana Grill Seasoning Mix (recipe on internet) instead of salt & pepper. It has gotten to the point that it is so good we hardly use any thing else for beef & chicken. Great simple recipe and will be making it many times in the future."

You can solve this problem by buying a farm raised turkey and not hunting for wild turkey's. Then you must clean the darn thing.

Any copy-cat recipe from Luby';s Cafeteria is always worth a try. This is no exception. I placed the beef on a rack and placed a bottle of Porter ale (dark beer) in the bottom of the pan. No need to boil CB ever again. Too bad the folks in Ireland never eat corned beef, they don';t know what they are missing.

This is very good but what happened to the File Gumbo powder at the very end? Never saw a Gumbo recipe without File Gumbo. I used bacon fat instead of oil, shrimp stock instead of chicken stock and of course okra. Follow this recipe and you won';t go wrong. You will double it the next time you make it, because it goes fast."

Remember to ring out the milk from the bread to keep it from turning to mush. Needed a little punch, so I added 2/3 tea of Italian seasoning & Everglade Seasoning, each. Cook time was closer to 90 to 100 min. Very good traditional meat loaf.
