“A good comfort casserole, all-in-one meal, that can easily be made ahead. The last time I made this, I used minced pork, instead of beef (hamburger). You could substitute yoghurt for the sour cream. From The Australian Family Circle Best Seller Series, Favourite Minced Meat recipes. I've had this book since the children were babies, always my favourite fall-back when I need to feed a houseful of young people!”
