MRS Test Recipes

MRS was designed to serve foods popular with Mississippi students. It is also a way to introduce new foods into our menus. You and your staff can be part of the process by testing new recipes and returning your comments and suggestions. Please click here to visit the test page: https://mdek12.org/OCN/OP/MRS/MRS-Test-Recipes. The testing and evaluation of these recipes will help develop recipes that can be used in all our Mississippi Schools to provide the best meals for our Mississippi Child Nutrition Programs.

Ingredient and Recipe Updates

NEW: The April 2022 ingredient and recipe data file updates include ingredient and recipe changes due to new items on the order guide as well as corrections to errors that were found.  Links to data files of ingredients and recipes are below and should be imported into your Nutrikids® nutritional analysis program.

Recipes were renumbered in 2021 and data files of the renumbered recipes were distributed at that time.  There are at least four unused numbers between each recipe number and unused numbers between different categories and subcategories.  This will allow additional recipes to be added between existing recipes.

Links to cross-reference files with the numbers corresponding to recipes names in MRS online and the NK database are below.  Importing the renumbered recipe data files will not delete district recipes or menus.

There is also an option to import the entire revised database. Importing the new database will overwrite any local recipes or menus and the data will be deleted. 

Remember “.1” after a recipe number indicates that USDA Foods ingredients are used, “.2” is for recipes that have USDA Beef Crumbles, and “.3” for recipes that have DOD and Farm to School produce.
