Ok, so your Super Bowl Party is going to be a hit, think about it… your guests are awesome, their kids are running all over your home out of control, the game is going your way, or perhaps not. However, the best part is that you are going to have such a great time, it is all good!
But wait, are your guests only getting appetizers? NOOO! You still have to celebrate who won or lose. Therefore, before they are ready to go bye, bye, serve them a complete meal that will take you no time to prepare, and then send them home.
This recipe is a complete meal in one casserole. You will only need to serve it with a salad and Bam; Complete Success!
Total Prep and Cook Time: Prep 15 minutes, cooking time 1 hr.
Approximate Cost: $15.21 (or $1.90/serving)
1 ½ cup or UNCOOKED large grain rice (.75)
1 lb. ground pork and chicken (any combination you prefer.) ($4.50)
3 tbsp. dry rub seasonings for the meat (whatever you have in your pantry)
1 can of French string beans (drained)
1 cup of frozen corn (.98)
1 cup of frozen sweet peas (.98)
1 can of onion soup (Campbell’s Soups regular price: 3 cans for $5.00)
1 can of consommé
1 can of cheddar cheese soup
1/2 pack of bacon ($3.00)
Preheat your oven at 375 degree.
Season the ground meats and sauté until almost cooked.
In a rectangular Pyrex or aluminum tray begin to build your casserole in layers starting with the rice at the bottom, add the cooked meats on top, followed by 1 can of French string beans drained, 1 cup of frozen corn, 1 cup of frozen sweet peas, 1 can of onion soup, 1 can of consommé, 1 can of cheddar cheese soup.
Cover the top layer with bacon. (I did not use 1/2 pack but you can add more to overlap.
Finally, bake the casserole for 1 hour until the bacon is golden and crispy.
You do not need to grease the baking dish.
All ingredients are added in layers on the order they are listed.
The soups cook the rice in the bottom and the bacon season it well.
To serve it, scoop it out of the mold with a large spoon into the plate. Garnish with a piece of crispy bacon and serve with a salad or avocado.
(This past holiday season, I made 2 aluminum trays and fed 17 people plus.) Amazing!
