As I thumb through recipes and cookbooks contemplating what to blog about, I find myself drawn to recipes that remind me of someone or something special. This is a recipe I remember making in high school. I don't know it's origin. My father is one of those people that likes his meat, potatoes and veggies to be in their separate place on his dinner plate. He's not much for casseroles. This Hamburger Casserole is the one casserole that my Dad eats and actually loves. My Dad turns 90 in a few weeks, I think I will make this for his birthday dinner.
Into a well buttered casserole dish, place layers in order . Season each layer with salt and pepper.
2 -3 medium potatoes, sliced
2 -3 carrots, sliced
Can of peas (drained, saving liquid)
1 onion, sliced
1 stalk of celery, sliced
Over top of vegetables, placed 1 pound of ground beef, browned and drained.
Combine liquid from peas with can of tomato soup and pour over the top of ground beef.
Cover. Bake at 325 for 2 hours.
