Down-Home Dinner

This dish is a hit at every family gathering. It freezes well, so I always seem to have some on hand for last-minute meals.—Jeanette Hielpler, Bloomington, Minnesota

    We enjoyed this simple casserole. Since my husband doesn’t like peas I substituted corn. I will definitely make it again.
