I received this cookbook from my cousin for Thanksgiving and I wanted to give a few of the recipes a try. She swore up and down that this is one of the best cookbooks that she has ever had and that you can't go wrong with any of the recipes... This reputation seemed as if it should be hard to live up to. So far, so good - I have tried a few of the recipes and they have all made the cut!! They will be posted on the blog because they are definitely all yummy and re-doable! :) This one looked a little crazy with all the ingredients but it was a hit at my house for supper and also the next day for the daycare kids...
The Wigglers Casserole
(recipe found in Apostolic Christian Church Cookbook)
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 cup cubed potatoes
1 cup carrots, cut up
1 cup celery, cut up
1 cup raw spaghetti noodles
1 cup peas
1 (10 3/4 ounces) can cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cup tomato juice
3 slices bacon, fried and cut up
1/3 pound grated cheese
Brown beef and onions; layer in bottom of a greased 9x13" casserole. Cook vegetables and noodles until done. I did this all in one large pot - start with bring the potatoes, carrots and celery to a boil, then adding noodles and peas for the last few minutes. Drain and put on top of the beef layer. Next layer soup on stop, then bacon and finally tomato juice. Bake for 45 minutes at 350, putting cheese on for the last 5 minutes of baking.
