St Patrick’s Day Casserole

16 Mar

Thrift stores – the portal to the world of the strange and intriguing. And what could be more intriguing, more tempting than a cookbook entitled Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers: Casseroles? It was in a thrift store that I found this treasure trove, this bounteous bounty of unique recipes. The temptation is enormous. Just this week I made a most delicious Tuna-Noodle-Potato Chip casserole aka Fish and Chips (see picture under Things to Make Your Children Eat) It was all that you’d imagine it to be. And who knew potato chips were so versatile? But for St Patrick’s Day, one casserole recipe overshadowed all the others. Was it the quirky, Irish sounding name of the dish? Was it the promise of a casserole laden with lunch meat? (just that sentence alone makes my mouth water) Whatever the reason, I want to share this with you for the upcoming holiday. Start making your shopping list .

Full O’ Bologna

1 1/2 c. or 1/2 lb. bologna, sliced or cubed

2 c. raw potatoes, sliced or cubed

1 med. onion, diced (opt.)

6 T. flour

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

3 T. margarine or butter

2 c. milk

Arrange ingredients except margarine and milk in alternate layers in greased 7 or 8-inch baking dish. Dot with butter. Pour milk all over. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 F. Yield: 4-6 servings.

All recipes in this book were submitted by actual Home Economics teachers and the wonderful teacher who submitted this is Mrs. G. Irelan from Grand Blanc H.S. , Michigan.

If anyone makes this recipe, please let me know how it turned out.
