Casseroles used to be pretty much all we ate until I quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mom. Now it doesn't happen nearly as often, especially in summer, but as far as generally easy, warm, and comforting foods go, you just can't beat a good casserole.
My husband and father-in-law love this! It's a bit time-consuming, but worth the spectacular results. Truly a handsome dish! From one of those Pillsbury mini-magazine things you buy at the supermarket. Please note that you can use leftover mashed potatoes as well, or make homemade if you really hate instant!
This can be made the night before, refrigerated and cooked the next day.Quick, easy and delicious. Serve with hot biscuits.
You can use precooked bacon pieces or turkey bacon or small pieces of ham!
NOTE: i HAVE CHANGED THE AMOUNT OF MAYO (IT WAS A MISTAKE WHEN I FIRST PUBLISHED)
This used to be the traditional Mennonite Sunday lunch at our house -- it has since become more likely at supper, but it's just as traditional and just as delicious! I'm not sure where farmer sausage is all available or whether it's one of those local specialties just available in Manitoba, so I've posted a recipe for that as well for those of you who make your own sausages. (#184513) If you can't buy it nearby or make it yourself, I'm terribly sorry -- you're definitely missing out! This recipe is for those of you who can.
Taken from The Taste of Home Magazine --- This is a ground beef and corn bread recipe all in one casserole and made into a main dish meal --- I also add in corn nibets and some jalapeno peppers also, serve with gravy on the side, this is total comfort food! :)
Ceilidh is the name of an event a local group puts on each year. It means a party in gaelic. This is a traditonal pie that they serve and everyone expects. These freeze well so are great to have on hand for those times when unexpected company drops by or you just don't know what to fix.
After having the best albondigas of my life on vacation, I searched high and low to find a recipe similar. I suppose albondigas varies from place to place, cuz the recipes were so very different!! This one is the best one I've found, with changes to suit our tastes.
