The Frugal Musician makes a casserole….


FM was homebound on a cold winter night recently. Homebound only because it was too cold to traverse to the store to purchase dinner makings and I was down to my last five dollars cash.  So FM got creative and made a casserole of ground pork and potatoes. Quite yummy and very inexpensive so I thought I would share the recipe

One pound ground pork sauteed in onion or garlic or whatever you have on hand- I used a bit of basil, sage, celery salt and thyme as a sprinkle in. Also added Worchestershire sauce and a squirt of ketchup.

Uncooked thin sliced potatoes- I had Yukon golds in the cabinet

Cream of mushroom soup, mixed with 1/3 cup sour cream and 1/3 cup milk  and a tablespoon of mayo

Butter casserole dish. Thinly cut potatoes and put a layer in the casserole dish.  Spoon ground pork on top of sliced potatoes. Put another layer of potatoes over the ground pork. Pour cream of mushroom mixture over top of casserole and top with cheese or breadcrumbs or Durkee fried onions or all three.  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

FM loved this and she doesn’t really care for meat. It was savory and creamy and good. And cheap. Did I mention cheap?
