    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    We grew up with this casserole that we called "goulash." It is an humble dish that is comforting with its blend of garlic, mushrooms, peppers, and bacon. The oregano gives it a special flavor that makes it different from other hamburger casseroles. The original version did not have a bread crumb topping, but it does jazz it up for company. If you are lucky enough to have some frozen cooked ground beef (OAMC) this recipe can be assembled much quicker.This doubles nicely.

      Everyone has grown up eating goulash in one form or another. This recipe is a little more time consuming than what my mom used to make, but the bacon does give this dish an added dimension which I really like. A nice "I don't know what to make tonight" meal because most ingredients should already be in your cupboard, fridge or freezer. Another plus is that it only uses one lb of ground beef, but easily feeds a family of four or so. Thanks, Roxy!
