    Default Passed-down family recipes?

    Do you have any recipes that have been passed down in your family? Please share!

    I have two recipes that have been passed down - Dutch salad (I'm sure thats not the actual name of it, but my grandma on mums side used to have this often as a child in Holland, and we just refer to it as Dutch salad), and mushroom meatballs (passed down from my nan on dads side). They have been adapted a bit, but basically remain the same.

    (this one is a family favourite!)

    - 8 or so potatoes
    - jar of mayo
    - large tin of salmon/tuna
    - small tin of mackerel
    - small jar red cocktail onions
    - half jar of bread and butter cucumbers
    - 3 or 4 chopped shallots
    - 6 boiled eggs, chopped
    - can of peas and carrots (optional)

    - Cut potatoes into small chunks and boil til soft.Drain and leave to cool.
    - Add jar of mayo and mash.
    - Stir in rest of ingredients, adding fish last.
    - leave in fridge overnight to chill (do not serve warm)

    (Really good in winter!)

    - 8 or so potatoes, diced
    - 500g mince
    - can of Campbell's mushroom soup
    - large bag of mushrooms, sliced
    - bacon pieces
    - 3 or 4 shallots, sliced

    - Pre-heat oven to 180
    - Form mince into small meatballs, spread evenly on a shallow baking dish
    - Fill in all the gaps between the meatballs with diced potato.
    - Evenly cover with bacon pieces, shallots, and then mushrooms. Season with a bit of salt.
    - In a mixing bowl, mix the mushroom soup with half a tin of milk
    - Pour this mix evenly over the baking dish.
    - Cook in oven uncovered for 1 hour, or until potatoes in centre of the dish are soft.
    - Serve hot

    I realize that I don't have precise measurements - I've been cooking these for years, so I just kind of add the ingredients until it looks right lol.

    Interested to see the different kinds of recipes that have been passed down
