Connie's Pantry Casserole

Connie Ottman


Ever had a pound of hamburger with no clue what you were going to do with it? That's how this recipe was born over thirty years ago. I'm pretty sure there are a lot of variations of this recipe out there. I add this one to the group. Easy, fun and creative, this dish is really good and comforting. Enjoy!
