Amish Cook Classic: Washday Casserole

This was one of Elizabeth Coblentz's favorite recipes, and it is truly an Amish Cook classic. If you want a hearty, simple, delicious casserole, this is a great one!


3 pounds of hamburger

3 onions, chopped

3 cups of potatoes, peeled and diced

3 cups of celery, diced

3 cups of cooked spaghetti

2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans of cream of mushroom soup

9 slices of bacon

32 ounces of tomato juice

1 pound of cheddar cheese, grated

Brown crumbled hamburger and onions in a pan. Drain and pour hamburger mix into large casserole or deep 9x13 inch baking pan. Add potatoes, celery, and spaghetti to casserole and mix lightly with hamburger. Pour mushroom soup on top and spread evenly. Fry bacon and lay on top. Pour tomato juice over this. Add cheese over that. Bake 1 1 /2 hours in 350 degree oven. Serves 10 to 12.
