GBP's 101 Cozy Casseroles Review #2 & GIVEAWAY

Gooseberry Patch's 101 Cozy Casseroles
The next recipe I tried from this fabulous book was..........
Mom's Texas Hash

Mom's Texas Hash
GPB's 101 Cozy Casseroles (submitted by: Ginger O'Connell, Hazel Park, MI)
(Printable Version)

1lb ground beef
2 onions, sliced (my onion was large so I just used one)
1 green pepper, chopped
8-oz can stewed tomatoes* (I used Fire-Roasted tomatoes)
1/2 to 1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt

Brown beef, onions and green pepper in a skillet over medium heat; drain. Stir in tomatoes with juice and seasonings. Cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 8 minutes; spoon into an ungreased one-quart casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 4.

*NOTE: I had a little issue with this recipe. I could not find a 8-oz can of stewed tomatoes. I contacted Gooseberry Patch and they went back to Ginger's original submission which does state 8-oz can stewed tomatoes. It is possible that there is a regional brand that comes in that size that isn't available in my part of the country. The can I bought was 14.5-oz. I added ONE cup of stewed tomatoes and then decided to go ahead and use the entire can. In my opinion, it was perfect.

This is a very yummy recipe. I rounded out the meal with a tossed salad and corn muffins for the carb eaters in my family. The casserole would also be very yummy with a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of grated cheese. I think one of the things I liked the most about this recipe was that it easily went together in advance and then I baked it off just before serving. Perfect for those rushed evenings.


Okay, NOW for the GIVEAWAY!! To have a chance to win this cookbook AND a Vintage-Inspired Faithfulness Farm Apron and the 4 individual casserole dishes, leave a comment on the original post.

    I follow you on Pinterest! Love that place. I especially enjoy it when you pin pictures of barns and other country places or embroidery ideas and nearly always repin something of yours.

    The recipe sounds awesome and I'm glad you shared about the difference in the tomato can size. I don't think I have ever seen an 8-oz. can of stewed tomatoes either.

    I make something very similar to this on the stove top named Texas Hot Hash. I think the only difference is and addition of rice. It is SO yummy! I follow your blog and follow you on FB. I'm sort of like a .. stalker. :-D
