betty's country style casserole

Recipe by
Betty Bramanis

Rich, hearty and stick to your ribs! This is a meal for a cold night and can be made the day before and re-heated (which allows the flavours to develop). Serving with a bread is greatly recommended to sop up all the gravy from the plate. You may need more than one slice :)
