This comes from my grandmother's shoebox of recipes -- and it is good! Perfect in the winter with a nice green salad and plenty of crusty bread. This makes a huge pot -- I usually freeze some to have on hand for a quick dinner. I have also added leftover corn or green beans to this and it is still fabulous. It is not a lot of work -- just the simmering takes some time. But it is worth it.
This is one more in a series of my grandmother's vegetable "bakes." These were either clipped from a magazine or handwritten -- some with notes added later. This one had "good!" written on it -- evidently meeting with my grandmother's approval.
This is one of my grandmother's many vegetable "bakes." These recipes were either clipped from magazines or handwritten -- some with notes added later. This one had "From Trish" written on it -- probably meaning it came from my great-aunt Trish. I am amused by this and all the other zucchini recipes in the box -- I remember my grandfather did not like zucchini!
Found in my grandmother's shoebox of clipped recipes. She had a number of vegetable "bakes" -- all a little faded and some with handwritten notes. This one had "Peggy's favorite!" written across the bottom. I have no idea who Peggy is or was -- but she evidently really liked this one.
I love to make this when the weather gets cold -- it is rich and satisfying. I usually serve it as the main course with a salad -- but probably would do well as a side dish. Unfortunately, I don't know the source. I tore it from a magazine about ten years ago.
Can you stand another meatloaf recipe? I saw this being made on a tv show -- but was vacuuming and didn't catch all the ingredients. So, I adapted my own (rather, my mother's) recipe and came up with this. My husband will not eat meatloaf any other way!
