Wheat Casserole

"First time I made this I cut the recipe in half, thinking my family wouldn't be interested. I was trying to incorporate more wheat into our diet. I wished I had made the whole thing. I think it's yummy. I've adapted this from a recipe in "Marlene's Magic with Food Storage". Unsure of yield. Update: Recently made this and my 2 wheat salads as part of a booth at a preparedness fair. They were all a hit. The men especially liked this wheat casserole as it is similar to chili. The women generally liked the salads better - figures!"

  1. I tagged this in Spring '08 PAC. It makes a lot, so that I reduced the meat (used ground tukety) a bit (would reduce the berries next time instead) bcz I didn't have a pan big enough to simmer it all in. Left out the olives and green peppers, so I think I would add more seasonings next time. It had a strong taste of tomato sauce. Maybe I'll add the seasonings I use for my spaghetti sauce too. I love the chewiness of the berries, but the kids don't, so, like I said, will cut the berries down so they're not so prominent. Thanks!


My passions: faith, family, food, and anything family history related. Almost nothing I like more than to chase headstones of my dearly departed ancestors. I've been working on a family cookbook for almost 2 years. (Need to figure out how I want to actually print it.) Enjoy learning about how what I grew up eating relates to my ancestors from Croatia and Alsace primarily. Enjoy following and forming new traditions within the walls of my home. Some would say I lead a very boring and mundane life. I would say it's just what I ordered. I have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom - which is what I truly love. Feel it's the best calling anyone could ever have. I've truly been blessed!
