USING DRY MILK TO INCREASE NUTRITION IN YOUR OWN RECIPES
IN YOUR OWN RECIPES
Adding additional milk to the recipe will enhance the nutritive value of the recipe. In any recipe calling for milk, simply add the dry milk to the other ingredients. Sift to blend, then add water for the milk, called for in the recipe.
- For use in meat loaf, hamburgers, etc., use ¼ - ½ c. per pound of meat.
- In mashed potatoes- add ¼ c. per cup of potatoes. To bring the potatoes to the correct consistency, use water, water the potatoes were cooked in or broth.
- Cooked cereals- add ¼ - ½ c. to each cup of cereal before cooking. I usually add additional water when I cook mine, then mix milk powder to sugar, sprinkle on top, and mix.
- Any time a recipe calls for milk, I figure how much powder to make the milk. Add up to 50% and add that to increase the nutrition.
