I don’t measure when I cook. I never have. I “eye” it. It’s what makes dinner so great! This is a simple recipe I dubbed “Poor Man’s Casserole” one evening years ago. I hardly had anything left in the cupboards, and I was living paycheck to paycheck. Since then, I’m more prepared.
- 1 box of au gratin or scalloped potatoes mix
- milk/butter/water as indicated on potato mix box
- 1 can of your favorite vegetable, drained
- 1 roll of your favorite kielbasa or sausage (or whatever meat you have on hand, as this is poor man’s casserole)
- thyme, rosemary, oregano, and black pepper, to taste
- Follow instructions on potato mix box. (If you choose to make taters from scratch, follow your recipe.)
- Add drained can (or fresh veggies) and meat of choice, unless you want it vegetarian style, to your casserole.
- Place casserole in oven, per box instructions. About 10 minutes before casserole is to be finished, sprinkle herbs/spices (thyme, rosemary, oregano, and black pepper) over the top. Continue baking the full time.
- Let stand for a few minutes to thicken. Enjoy. Serves amount indicated on box– usually 4 or 5 servings.
