If you'll pick up any cookbook, you'll see that some recipes have interesting names. Some recipes have titles that are quite humorous and innovative. It's always fun to read the recipes to try to figure out how and why the recipe was given the name it has.
This recipe is for "Shipwreck Casserole", I'm not sure why it's called this! The only reason I can come up with is that all the ingredients are piled on top of each other, much like the wreckage from a shipwreck would be. But, I'd like to assure you that while the title has a negative connotation, the dish itself is very good
