summer or winter....burritos (loaded of course, meat/beans/cheese/tomatoes/peppers/onion/and cheese (did i say cheese?) and sour cream, of course.  This was a meal that later in refeeding we could allow dd to make some choices/prep as long as she started with the meat/beans/cheese and had to top with at least one TBSP of sour cream.

or what we call picnic night = and another that allowed some choices:  rottiserie turkey breast, crusty french bread, chuncks of sharp cheddar cheese, brie, grapes, triscuits, baby carrots/broccoli/w dip, cherry tomatoes, olives, etc etc.

easy turkey casserole:  buy a half to 3/4 in thick slab of honey roaste turkey breast at deli for cubing. Make a box of pasta (penne, rotini, wahtever), add turkey cubes, frozen peas, and store bought alfredo sauce. Put in a casserole and top with parm cheese/bread crumb mix and bake of just til bubbling and brown on top.  The timesaver here is that the turkey is all cooked and the frozen peas don't take long to heat through.

can also be done with frozen shrimp and snap peas.

hope these help!

I know I am the queen of Hagan Das...but if you do not read my threads- the chocolate peanut butter has 350 clas per half cup. There are 3.5 servings in the pint. I use this with 1 cup of whipping cream to make a wonderful 2025 calorie shake!!!!!!!!!I have not found any ice cream more calorie dense than that. It accounts for half of my D's calories a day and makes eating the rest so much more tolerable. Thank GOD she has no allergies to dairy.

Someone asked for this recipe and I thought I would start a new thread.  This is absolutely delicious and packed with lots of "energy!"

Rhubarb Bread
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
2/3 C. oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 C. buttermilk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour
1 1/2 C. rhubarb, finely chopped
1/2 C. walnuts, chopped

Topping:
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 C. sugar
1 T. melted butter

Cream brown sugar, oil and egg.  Sift dry ingredients together.  Add alternately to brown sugar mixture with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour.  Add vanilla and mix in.  Fold in the rhubarb and walnuts. Pour into two well-greased 9x5 loaf pans, spreading batter well into corners.

In small bowl, mix topping with a fork.  Sprinkle evenly on both loaves.  Bake at 325 for 60 + minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from pans and cool.  This is especially good the next day or after.  Freezes well.

p.s.  The original recipe calls for 50-60 minutes of baking but in my oven it takes longer.  You may want to check it at 50 mins. in your own oven.

Is there a high calorie muffin recipe that would safe for someone with a severe tree nut and peanut allergy?  I'm not sure what to add to a recipe to make it nutrient dense without the use of nuts or peanut butter.

Hi farawaymom! I imagine if your D/S has a severe tree nut and peanut allergy, you could try sunflower seed butter if you didn't have other options? You could also sneak in some purreed avocado. It doesn't add much of a taste, anyway! I know that it can be used to make icecream too. Could you maybe try finding the highest-calorie brand of flour (not necessarily wheat, maybe potato, rye, spelt etc.?), or adding a supplement such as Benecalorie? Protein powder could work, too. Make sure to add plenty of butter, maybe maple syrup? I would normally use golden syrup in my muffins (my D has a severe egg allergy) to help bind them, but it could be a good way to up the cals. Just try and add anything most people advise not to! Dried fruit would be great, too, as it's very dense, so you can get away with about 300 cals. I hope your D/S enjoys your muffins!

You could substitute sour cream in a recipe that called for buttermilk or yogurt.

Wonderful thank you!  Yes, my d has a nut and peanut allergy which results in wheezing, hives, and swelling in her mouth.  The dried fruit is a great idea as is of course the butters and syrup. 

Gobsmacked, does sour cream work well in a sweet muffin recipe?  I have an oatmeal spice muffin recipe that calls for juice or yogurt, but if I could put in sour cream that would be even better.

That should work. I have a coffee cake recipe that uses sour cream and what you're describing sounds similar. If in doubt you could always reduce the recipe and make a test batch and then add additional brown sugar or applesauce if needed.

I've made muffins with sour cream. I can't promise that it's going to have the exact same reaction with baking soda/baking powder that buttermilk or yogurt will, but it should be similar enough.

I rarely actually use nuts in my muffins. They are dense enough in calories anyway -- butter, flour, sugar, eggs, high-fat dairy. Dried fruit certainly helps if you child won't eat it on it's own. Chocolate chips are good.

LV -- any recipe that calls for applesauce was probably amended originally from an originally higher fat recipe. My Mom used to substitute applesauce for oil back in the '70s. It's a long-known trick. So if a recipe calls for applesauce (unless you are actually going for an apple flavor), add back oil or melted butter instead, in the same amount. Same goes for prune puree.

Looking for non-sweet things I can add to a fruit & yogurt smoothie to boost the calories and/or nutrition. Anyone have ideas in addition to those below?

I've discovered Fage Greek Yogurt. The full-fat has 23 grams of fat and 310 calories per cup. I use it in combination with regular full fat yogurt as the Fage alone is as thick as a dip.

I also add flax seed or walnut oil.

We started out with no sugar, but I've been adding honey, agave nectar, and or straight sugar for a while, and she hasn't mentioned the difference.

Red, sorry I never answered you on that -- I have started adding ice cream when I think she needs more calories.

I've recently discovered cooking steel cut oats in the crockpot, which means I can make them at night (when she's not hanging around) and have a hot breakfast that is more than generous for four of us waiting for us in the morning. The recipe is simple:

1 cup steel-cut oats
1 cup dried fruit
3T brown sugar
4 1/2 cups cream/milk/water (how much of each is your choice)

You can make this directly in the crockpot, but it tends to burn. Either use liners or try the bain-marie method: find a bowl that fits inside the crockpot, fill it with the ingrediients, set it in the crockpott on top of something to keep it from cracking the bottom (i.e. rolled up foil) add water to the crockpot until it reaches almost up to the top of the inner bowl, Cook on high for 7 hours.

In the morning add more cream, butter, sugar, whatever you like. I sometimes add butter to the oats before they cook.

Even better shake: choc pb cup Ben and Jerry's- 1 small container is 1400 cals. Add 1 cup whipping cream and 400 cals of combo pb/chocolate ice cream toppping, oreos- whatever. This is a 2600 cal shake. You can break it up inot a few small shakes- although my D (only 11 and tiny) had the whole thing at once every day for 3 months at about 3pm.

I have just made a fabulous "Muslie" slice as part of d afternoon snack
Mega calories, mega fats!
I realize there is a discrepancy between measures around the world but it should be ok

5 cups of dry ingredients

I included 2 cups of macadamia meal ( got the nuts on special and blended them)
1 cup of crushed up scotch finger biscuits
Half cup of shredded coconut
Half cup chopped dried fruit
1 cup of oats ( so you can call it a muslie bar)
1 tin of condensed milk
Half a cup of melted butter

Mix all the dry ingredients together
Add the melted butter to the condensed milk
Mix the two, pour into slice pan and cook for about 25 - 35 mins in medium oven or until lightly browned on top

You could use any combination of dry ingredients such as almond meal, crushed Oreos, granola ....anything

I have three recipes that I use right now and they are high calorie!
Breakfast Cream of Wheat
1 1/2 cup whole milk ( we use Lactaid Milk, because D is Lactose intolerant)
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons Cream of Wheat
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Add last when off heat:
1 scoop muscle milk powder ( vanilla creme)
Cook according to directions, remove from heat, stir in muscle milk powder, and thin with milk if needed. Pour into bowl, sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve with a smile! (side note, you could add a bazillion calories to cream of wheat I think)
Night Snack Smoothie
6 ounces greek yogurt, I use vanilla
1 frozen banana
5 frozen blueberries
1/4 sugar
1/2 cup half and half
Add last:
2 scoops muscle milk powder
Blend yogurt and half and half and sugar, add frozen banana and blueberries. Last add muscle milk powder and blend thoroughly. Serve in beautiful glass with a smile!
Breakfast muffins
1 can pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
1 cake mix, Devil's Food, Spice Cake, or Carrot Cake
1 stick butter
Mix pumpkin and cake mix, then add melted butter. Spoon into greased muffin tins, bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Mornings are rough for me. I'm a night owl, and having to make sure d has a big breakfast is almost painful for me. It's REALLY hard for me to give her a good breakfast AND be nice. I've discovered that on school nights I have to have either breakfast and/or lunch made for her and her sister the night before in order to be able to make mornings work.

 I stumbled upon the idea of breakfast in the crockpot (meaning one puts it together the night before and wakes up to a hot breakfast), and found these two recipes that work for our family. I've made them both a lot over the last few months. I figure some of you might appreciate them as well:

1) Breakfast Casserole

1 32 oz. bag hash browns
12 eggs
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup milk or 1/2 & 1/2
package of breakfast sausage (I use the kind that comes in a tube, but you can use links)
one onion, chopped
butter or oil

1. Sautee sausage in a bit of oil or butter over medium heat. When nearly browned, add onion and sautee until softened (doesn't need to be fully softened -- just take the edge off)
2. combine eggs, milk, and cheese
3. dump frozen hash browns in crockpot, add sausage onion mixture, pour egg mixture over all.
4. cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. I just turn mine on low before I go to bed. Sometimes it's quite well cooked, but it's always good.

Sometimes I add a can of green chilies or use a different cheese.


2. Steel-cut oats in the crockpot

1 cup steel-cut oats
1 cup dried fruit
4 cups milk or 1/2 & 1/2
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash vanilla
optional: butter (you could also just add this when it's cooked)

You can cook these all right in the crockpot, but I use this bain-marie method to keep things easier to clean. I have a bowl that fits in the crockpot. I put the ingredients in there. I put the bowl in the crockpot, with a little rolled up foil underneath, then I pour water around the bowl to higher than the oats (see this being done here: http://annkroeker.com/2008/03/25/overnight-crockpot-steel-cut-oatmeal/) -- sounds complicated but it isn't.

Set to low before you go to bed. Wake up to hot oatmeal. Add whatever you like. I usually add cream and berries (I keep blueberries in my freezer). Sometimes I even add butter

I hope this is helpful to someone.

this egg dish in crockpot sounds great!  Also thought I would share that I just noticed EGGNOG is back at the grocery for the holidays...dd loves it...sometimes she says its a little thick so I add a bit of milk to thin it out.....But still a real boost.

GS - Bless you!!!  I am not a morning person either.  Lucky for me d is now responsible for her breakfast but I still get up to supervise.  I think I'll try some of these just to mix things up a bit.  I know dh would appreciate this as well!!  I never ever would have thought about the crock pot for breakast.

Did you know there are bags you can get to line your crock pot?  Then you just throw the bag away and your crockpot is clean!!  I haven't tried them yet but would be a great time-saver.

I wonder if you could cook those oats in eggnog.

ihavehope -- I'm glad the recipes helped. I credit my learning how to get either breakfast or lunch dealt with the night before with there being a lot less stress in this house in the morning, and less stress can only help my d get better -- right?

Lasagne?
Not very quick, unless you make a bumper amount of bolognese sauce and then freeze quantities.

Chicken breasts stuffed with cheese and sundried tomatoes, wrapped in bacon and cooked in the oven.

Chilli served with grated cheese and sour cream on top.

Beef and mushroom stroganoff, made with double cream - very yummy!

Double baked potatoes (bake til soft, scoop out centre, mash with sour cream, grated cheese and chives, refill potato skins and bake again til browned.

Spanokipatta (spelling might be off) a greek dish of spinach and feta cheese and salad onions, all mixed together (food processar best) with one or two eggs, then used to fill filo pastry parcels. Filo pastry brushed with lots of melted butter. Bake in oven.

Roasted vegetables - squash, onions, peppers, tomatoes, with peeled chestnuts also. Nice fish goats cheese melted on top, or with sausages wrapped in bacon.

Will rack my brains more later...
Do you need actual recipes, or just inspiration?

Salmon Risotto (cream/parm cheese mixed right in).

Chicken burritos (I pack a ton of stuff in them/ beans/rice/cheese). Add sour cream and salsa. Sometimes I make them more like quesadillas and then she has two huge shells to eat.

Tuna casserole.

Slow cooker Pulled bbq beef or pork. Lots of sauce and on buns...it adds up.
