My mother at all times had just a few recipes that she’d make on a regular basis after I was rising up. There was Tacky Beef Casserole, which is fairly self-explanatory. Cheese. Buddig Beef. Potatoes. Toast. After which there was Hen a la King, the one means I’d ever eat peas (even when I’d choose the rooster out). However one of many recipes that at all times stands out in my reminiscences is Shipwreck.
Shipwreck, my mother instructed me, was named such as a result of it was all that folks needed to eat after their ships wrecked. Naturally, anytime my mother would make it, I’d think about Pilgrims on a tropical island, cans of Campbell’s soup and baked beans in hand, getting ready to make a casserole over a camp fireplace. I had an energetic creativeness, you see. (I additionally had two imaginary associates named Pleasure and Area—Pleasure after the dish cleaning soap and Area after Marshall Fields. By the way, Area appeared precisely like Joyce DeWitt from Three’s Firm.)
Anyway! After I did a vegetarian casserole problem with Valerie from Eclecticisms, I challenged her to make a vegetarian shipwreck casserole. It sounded so good and introduced again so many heat and fuzzy reminiscences that I simply needed to attempt to make it myself. The credit score for this recipe goes to Valerie (with just a few slight changes from yours actually), and you’ll examine her expertise making it right here.
I do know this recipe sounds somewhat bit weird, however belief me, it’s actually good. (You do belief me, proper?) My husband, not a fan of baked beans, was actually skeptical, however I transformed him.
