Jettie Mae's Panhandler Spaghetti

  • 1 ½ lb. ground chuck

Spray Dutch oven with vegetable spray. Add 2 tbsp. oil. Brown meat. Add onions and green peppers. Cook till soft. Add remaining ingredients, reserving one cup of cheese until later. Do not cook spaghetti. Break and put in over dry. (It works I promise.) Put lid on oven. Place coals underneath oven and on top. Cook at 350° for 30 minutes. Check for doneness. Add remaining cheese to top. Replace lid to melt cheese. Serve.

Preheat oven to 350°. Wash quail and pat dry with paper towel. Lightly salt and pepper inside and out. In heavy skillet, sauté in melted butter until golden brown.

Add wine and lemon juice to skillet, stirring well. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Pour over quail. Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes, basting as needed to keep quail moist.
