    Patchwork Casserole

    Recipe Introduction

    I have cooked the following casserole for my family and for a bowling pot-luck dinner, and it was a success both times.

    List of Ingredients

    2 lb. ground beef
    2 c. chopped green bell pepper
    1 c. chopped onion
    2 pounds frozen Southern-style hash-brown potatoes, thawed
    2 cans (8-oz. each) tomato sauce
    1 c. water
    1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. dried basil, crumbled
    1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
    1 pound pasteurized process American cheese, thinly sliced


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Cook and stir beef in large skillet over medium heat until crumbled and brown, about 10 minutes; drain off fat.

    Add bell pepper and onion; cook and stir until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in potatoes, tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt, basil, and black pepper.

    Spoon half of mixture into 13x9x2-inch baking pan or 3-quart baking dish; top with half of cheese. Spoon remaining meat mixture evenly on top of cheese.

    Cover pan with aluminum foil.

    Bake 45 minutes.

    Cut remaining cheese into decorative shapes; (I just made
    triangles); place on top of casserole. Let stand loosely covered until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

    Makes 8-10 servings.
