ABC Casserole

Carol Davis


My kids named this dish, although I had been making it since my college days, when I paid my way through college working as a housekeeper for a very large house occupied by 3 bikers and myself (my own room and board). Needless to say these guys could pack away the groceries and I had to get very creative at times. At one point we had this large amount of ground beef at our disposal (don't ask), and suddenly I needed to get creative...and the pantry was close to empty. This is what I came up with.

15 Min


45 Min




potatoes, old, ready to go potatoes work well
1 lb
hamburger (not too lean, i recommend an 80-20 fat content, you will need the fat to cook the potatoes)
1 can(s)
campbell's vegetarian vegetable soup (it's hard to find, but they still carry it, this is important as it gives it the abc)
1 can(s)
creamed corn

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash potatoes well (or peel, if you prefer), slice in 1/4 inch slices and line a 9x13 casserole dish with the slices, don't overlap too much. Spread the hamburger over the potatoes in a thin layer, covering all the potato (this is kind of messy, but fill in all the gaps).
Next spread the vegetable soup as evenly as you can over the whole thing. Then spread the creamed corn over all, closing up as many gaps as possible.
Cover with tin foil and bake at 400 for 45 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender (you got to stick the fork down deep enough to get to the potatoes). Allow to stand 5-10 minutes.
