Beef Casserole "Gift in a Jar"

Stormy Stewart

By
@karlyn255

These are single serving casseroles mixes put in a pint jar. These are made with either Dried beef or sausage

This "Gift in a jar" Idea has three different Choices. That way you can make different meals simply by dumping the jar into a pan, add water and simmer. Just like those hamburger helper meals only the beef is already there. Nothing more to add.

Perfect for the person who lives alone or can be used as an after school snack or a quick dinner before rushing off to the game or dance.

Perfect for the mom of teenagers, always on the run and eating at odd times. Great for dorms
