I found this on a Facebook recipe page. I’ve modified it as usual. Not by much. Just added a clove of chopped garlic.
Usually when I’m going to plan a meal, I give Bryan two choices. What ever he picks is what I make. So to all the wives who complain about their husbands hating their cooking or complain about it, give him a choice. He’s the man, he’s making the money, he’s the reason why you are cooking, he might as well make the choice of what he feels like eating that day. Besides, he’ll feel like he’s part of the process. That’s all he really wants.
When I brought this idea up, he was all for it.
And then he ate 3 huge bowls of it. If you have a hungry man, this is the perfect casserole for him. It hardly takes any time to make.
Please keep in mind this makes 10 -12 servings.

This is a pretty hearty dish with a lot of ingredients. So many, that I couldn’t fit all of it in the bloody baking dish. On the Brightside, what I didn’t use I put in a container and in the freezer it does. There’s enough left over to make a separate mini casserole where all you need to do is add cheese and put it in the oven. Bahahaha. Two meals out of one. Love it.
