Saturday Night Severe Weather Casserole

"I put this casserole together with leftovers from a pot roast dinner and a few other ingredients. There was a severe thunderstorm in the area here in Denver, thus the name! My family gobbled it up and there were no leftovers in the 8"x8" baking dish I used! You don't need a thunderstorm to try this recipe! :)"

  1. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, used it as a guide. I used leftover roast beef, baked potatoes, and corn on the cob. I added a can of diced tomatoes and a Tbsp of onion soup mix. Had no breadcrumbs, so crushed croutons with the parmesan. Kids were iffy,(what's new!) but DH and I thought it was great. A wonderful way to clean out the fridge!
  2. I made this casserole for my family when I had to go out one night, and I told them to save me some....there was none left when I got home! They said it was great. I used regular corn as well because I didn't have any creamed! Thanks for posting!
  3. Easy way to use up leftover potroast. I used regular corn instead of creamed corn because DH doesn't like creamed corn..I served this with biscuits and it was wonderful--


(As many of you know Silent Cricket passed away on Feb. 29. Since she loved Recipezaar so much and so many on Recipezaar have shown their love for her, and have enjoyed her recipes, her personal information will remain here indefinitely just as she wrote it. Her lines at the end of this section sound somewhat prophetic as the last chapter of her earthly existence has been written.) Well, the time has come for me to change my users' name. After being, "OzCoMartha" because of having lived for three years in Australia and then moving to Colorado, I have decided to "turn over a new leaf." I chose this name because many moons ago I used to be able to "chirp" like a cricket and the "silent" refers to the present time when I'm taking a break...But, perhaps after a season, however long I decide that needs to be, I may be back and then I will fill in more details about myself...
