Judging from that lengthy recipe description, I thought this was going to be better than it was. It didn't deliver a lot of flavor though, and tasted like a think minestrone soup. Maybe I'm just too used to exotic recipes or something....

Oh my goodness...this was SSSOOOOOOOOOOOO good! It really takes you back to a simpler time (pre Food Network; I have to agree with you Bone Man; sometimes you just want good ole comfort food like Mom used to make...or not, in my case...my Mom can't cook to save her life). This was awesome and my family of picky-picky-picky eaters all gave it a thumbs up. I made just a few changes due to what I had on hand: replaced macaroni with wheat corkscrew pasta and only had 1 lb. ground chuck so I added 1/2 lb. Jimmy Dean sausage and threw in a drained small can of mushrooms. And the best part is that it took next to no time at all to prepare. Thanks for sharing a wonderful comfort food recipe that will be in our regular rotation from now on!!!

my kid's adopted Grandma Zola (aka my other mother-in-love) made Slumgullion to her high schoolers & friends. My kids came home for the weekend from college with friends & I wanted to made this but had no ideas all of the ingredients. Looks and tastes just about like hers! Yea. We're serving it on Blue Willow china, her favorite, in her honor. We just wish she were her.

I know I know I am NOT to mess with this recipe...... But I had to! I did have to scale it down since I only have 2 mouths to feed in this house. So I made about half the recipe with plans for letovers. This makes a wonderful meal! The spices really do bring this dish to another level. Since I never really use salt in any of my cooking I left it out completly. Awesome, awesome recipe!

This is a freshly posted recipe and it was just what I was looking for. I started this early this morning and let me assure you, the aroma in the kitchen right now is unbelievable. I grew up in Nebraska and we called it "slumgully" I am from Norwegian and Swedish descent, so I do not know where the original terminology "slumgullion" came from. Kudos to your mom for her creativity and her use of ingredients she had on hand. dee415's italian spices are the crowning glory to this too! Thanks Boneman for a good story and a wonderful meal.
