Lentil and Sausage Bake
1 cup lentils
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 - 1/2 onion, chopped

Wash the lentils, put in a quart pot with 2 cups of the water, and the chopped onion.
Simmer for 15 minutes. Check, if needed add the rest of the water to cover, and cook another 5 minutes, or until soft.
Set aside. It should yield about 3 cups lentils.

1 pound hamburger
1/4 tsp chili powder (the original recipe said cayenne, I didn't have any)
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp thyme
1/8 marjoram
1 tsp powdered sage
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp salt

Mix together and fry in a pan.
When meat is done, mix 2 cups cooked lentil mixture, and 1 cup cooked hamburger mixture.
Put in a small casserole.
Set aside and heat up for dinner. (Hubby had it cold and loved it.)
