This is an old recipe cut from a brand of potato chips that were popular in Indiana when I was a kid. The brand was CHESTY and we loved our CHESTY chips. Couldn't believe it when I ran across this 50 something year old recipe!

1 pkg CHESTY potato chips (I would say a regular family-size bag of today's chips.)
1 can (7-oz) salmon
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

Break up the potato chips; flake salmon. Alternate layers in a well greased baking dish, starting and ending with potato chips. Combine the soup and milk and pour over the layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the top is browned. Garnish with the hard-boiled eggs.

Old-Fashion Family Peach Cobbler

This is an old family favorite from Southern Indiana where I grew up. I have been told it tastes a lot like the one served at Paula Deen's restaurant in Savannah, Georgia.

1/2 stick butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk
1 large can sliced peaches, drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in a deep baking dish in the moderate oven. Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk in a small mixing bowl. Pour the batter in the dish with the butter but do not stir. Add the sliced peaches. Bake 1 hour.

Note: Some people like to use a whole stick of butter.
