Okay okay, this dish was not all bad. It was very hearty, something you would want to eat after working in the fields all day. In the words of Abbey, it was, “weirdly addicting”. Initially it was not very striking, but then you wanted to keep eating it…… kind of like box pasta and sauce. So here it is….
Six Layer Dinner

2 cups hamburger
2 cups sliced raw potatoes
2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup diced onion
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup diced green pepper
2 cups canned tomatoes
Place potatoes in bottom of greased casserole. Add celery, then hamburger, onions and pepper.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on each layer. Pour tomatoes over mixture in dish and garnish with green pepper rings.
Bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours.
The only thing I really changed about this recipe was that I used shredded cabbage instead of potatoes. This dish was a great way to use up a variety of veggies that might soon go to waste……..my Mennonite blood loves this thought! And really, that concept was probably why this dish was created. Makes me smile.
