Hamburger Casserole


But it is hearty and comforting, also traits of traditional Amish cooking.  Heavy, heart casseroles that feed a large family are favorites for Amish homemakers to prepare.  Casseroles are easy to assemble, there is usually plenty leftover for "seconds", and they also make great "carry-in" dishes to potluck and church suppers.  This particular casserole recipe, which comes from Elizabeth Coblentz, the original Amish Cook,  has become a favorite of my mother's to prepare.  HAMBURGER CASSEROLE


2 pounds of hamburger

1 /2 teaspoon salt

16 ounce can of tomato juice or equivalent homemade tomato juice

1 cup of cooked rice

1 /4 cup of chopped onion

3 /4 cup of chopped green pepper

1 tablespoon of chili powder

2 cups of shredded cheese


Cook hamburger and drain excess grease.  Mix cooked hamburger and the rest of ingredients together in a large casserole dish.  Save one cup of cheese to spread on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

I used cooked rice


 I made this recipe a few weeks back, and it was absolutely delicious!  I cooked the rice in advance (and used chicken broth instead of water to cook it) and it was just perfect.
