Cooking with Food Storage
How to combine foods to create tasty new meals

Variety will certainly be the spice of life in uncertain times. How much more pleasant
you will make things for the family when you learn to combine foods in your storage
to create some favorites. Below are some ideas for cooking with food storage.

Ideas for food storage combinations:

  • Cheesy Chili Mac: Macaroni & cheese (freeze dried) + ground beef (freeze
    dried) + can pinto beans + chili powder = Cheesy Chili Mac, a prepper favorite.
    Garnish with freeze dried cheddar cheese.

  • Crab cakes: Canned crabmeat + eggs (freeze dried and reconstituted) +
    bread crumbs (freeze dried). If you have them, add dehydrated celery and
    onion too. Serve with pasta noodles garnished with freeze dried cheeese and
    a dash of olive oil. Substitutions: You can also make tuna cakes and use
    crushed buttery crackers for the bread crumbs.

  • Clam Chowder: Creamy potato soup (freeze dried) + clam juice + clams =
    Manhattan Clam Chowder prepper style. If you have them, add dehydrated
    celery too! Instead of adding water, add the clam juice!

  • Potato skins: Potato slices (freeze dried) + Bacon bits + cheddar cheese
    (freeze dried) = Prepper's Potato Skins. Bake them in a solar oven. Top with
    freeze dried sour cream! If you are lucky enough, garnish with chives from
    your herb garden.

  • Shepherd's Pie: Sloppy Joe Mix (freeze dried) + peas (canned or freeze dried)
    + carrots (freeze dried) + mashed potatoes (freeze dried potato gems) =
    Prepper's Shepherd's Pie. Incidentally, Future Essentials Sloppy Joe Mix is a
    wonderful way to add variety to your meals. It comes in a number 2.5 can (an
    everyday can size).
