Wheat and Hamburger Casserole

*2 cups whole wheat berries, cooked
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb of hamburger
1 tsp cumin or oregano
1 cup onion, chopped
1 qt. jar tomatoes or 2 –16 oz diced tomatoes (I drain a little juice off of the tomatoes)
½ cup green pepper, chopped
1 tsp. chili powder
2 – 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 sm can chopped olives
2 cups grated Jack cheese

Brown hamburger with onions and green peppers in large skillet. Add wheat along with spices. Stir in tomatoes, sauce, and olives. Simmer for 30 minutes. Place in an oven proof casserole dish, to with cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 8

*To make wheat berries you simply cook in crock pot on low over night. 2 cups water to 1 cup of wheat.

Whole Wheat Rolls

¾ cup scalded milk
3 tablespoons margarine
¼ cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
¼ cup water
1 pkg. yeast
1 egg
2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

Combine scalded milk, shortening, honey and salt. Add yeast to water, stir to dissolve. Add to milk mixture; add beaten egg; blend in half of the flour. Beat well. Add remaining flour and mix well. Knead on slightly floured board until smooth (or I let it mix in my mixer for 6 or 8 minutes). Place in slightly greased bowl, cover and let rise until double in bulk. Punch down. Form into rolls. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 for 10 more minutes.
