Missouri (Diane Bolberchak)

Is it Missouri or Messouri? It sure looks like an E to me. Anyway, Missouri Casserole is a dish of layered potatoes, ground beef and onions. There are versions that include sliced peppers, green beans, and picante sauce in place of tomatoes or tomato sauce. Most of the recipes indicate that the potatoes should be … Continue reading

Beef Casserole (Deluxe)

Not just beef casserole, but a deluxe beef casserole…whee! I’m not sure on this one. The beef part sounds fine, but adding cottage and cream cheese just goes in the wrong direction for me.

Mexican Lasagna 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 large onion chopped 1 pound ground meat 1 Tbsp ground cumin … Continue reading

Italian Steak Pie

The recipe lists salt twice but I can’t see any reason why you couldn’t omit one measurement of it. I use … Continue reading
