Folks .... fine dining this is not! But if you want to feed a family of six for less than ten bucks this recipe is for you. It’s thoroughly family tested and approved by my 9 year old grand-son and others. Universally loved around my house.

Here’s a few pics of yesterday’s creation.

Like most casseroles the great part is that they are refrigerator “emptiers “. No two dishes are made the same. The basics are the potatoes, onion and carrots. I generally use a russet potato, sweet onion and sweet carrot as the base. The rice is great and next time I’m going to try brown rice rather than jasmine. I prefer frozen peas to canned. The tomato soup is a must and makes the dish nice and gooey so the kids overlook the vegetables. For meat I used three weenies on their “best before” date ... do weenies actually have a “best before” date ... and three left over breakfast sausages. I added a bit of sliced garlic and mushrooms ... both of which were to be “binned” if not used by Monday. For the “piece-de-resistance” I topped the dish at he 90 minute mark with shredded Monterey Jack and habenero cheese with a generous topping of the last half of a bag of crushed Kettle Brand New York Cheddar potato chips. Want a vegetarian dish? Leave off the meat layer. Want a vegan dish? Leave off the cheese as well. It’s still a family pleasing dish.

That's a superb-looking meal! Often, simple "thrown-together" dishes such as this turn out to be truly fantastic.

Thanks for writing this up, I'll give that try soon!

I made it today. Was pretty easy to prepare for my first time. I added some mushroom. For meat I diced some leftover peking duck along with beef sausages. Finally I sprinkled some beef bone broth powder after the tomato soup. Was delicious. Thanks for the basic recipe.

The finished preparation before baking. Forgot to take a picture of the baked finish product as the family was too hungry.

Awesome ... as it turns out I made it up yesterday as well. Like you say it lends itself to adding/changing layers. My version yesterday added a layer of sweet potato, a layer of ground bacon ends made up by my favourite butcher, and a topping of left over breakfast sausage. I cooked it in a 350F oven for an hour and added a topping of Tex-Mex grated cheese and a healthy topping of New York Cheddar potato chips. It appeared a bit dry so I added about a half cup of extra spicy Clamato juice (I was drinking Chelada’s at the time)! Another 30 minutes and the family couldn’t wait to tear into it. Best 7-Layer supper yet ... except now I guess it was 14-Layer Supper. Oh yes ... a guest for dinner didn’t like peas for some reason so I substituted chopped asparagus stems for the peas.

I couldn't get a photo as it got demolished very quickly, but a great way to use veggies up! Added a little celery, and a top layer of thinly sliced courgette covered with grilled cheddar cheese. 180C for 90 mins. I'll be making it again 👍
