“From the 1989 edition of our church cookbook. This is one of my favorite ground beef casseroles. I thought I had lost it forever and have been searching and racking my brain for months trying to remember all of the ingredients. I was at my mom's house the other day and was flipping through this cookbook - and look what I found! It freezes and reheats well; it's a good dish to prepare ahead of time since it can be refrigerated and then baked later. **Note** This also works great in the crock-pot. Simply layer the ingredients as you would in a casserole dish and cook on low for about 4 hours.”
