Amish Shipwreck Casserole Recipe: A Hall of Fame Recipe Worth Repeating by Tiffany Zook
Take a step back in time this week and serve your family an old-fashioned meal. This vintage Amish recipe for shipwreck casserole is from Mrs. Martha Hoover on page 124 of the Weavertown School Family Cooking: A Collection of Amish and Mennonite Recipes. It's also one of the popular recipes at 30Seconds.
The ground beef casserole is made by layering onions and potatoes in a casserole dish. The vegetables are topped with uncooked (yes, don't cook it first!) ground beef, uncooked rice then celery and carrots. The tomato soup is combined with a can of water and poured over the top. Bake the layered casserole in the oven for about two hours.
You could use ground turkey instead of the ground beef in this Amish recipe. Use whatever potatoes you like best. Russet or Yukon gold are good choices. Serve this ground beef budget recipe with a salad and fresh vegetable. The leftovers reheat well for dinner the next day.
