As a true Midwesterner, I embrace casserole cuisine. However, not all casseroles are created equal and this book proves it. Note the “surprise” casserole. (I think my mother had a similar recipe.) The other recipe worth noting is called “Ned’s Goop.” Looking at the ingredients, the word “goop” is fitting. The casserole staples always include a can of cream of mushroom soup, cheese of some kind and some kind of crunch factor, such as potato chips or bread crumbs. I won’t even comment on the calorie count or sodium consumed.

  1. “Yam and Ham” sound pretty good! I’d leave out the brown sugar, never did like candied yams. It would do fine in a slow cooker.

    1. The Surprise Casserole doesn’t sound *too* bad. I like the idea of cheese inside meatballs.

    1. On another page, I Bet! Can’t have a casserole cookbook from that era without that recipe!

  2. I was reading the “Yam and Ham” recipe and thinking that removing the ham would leave you with a nice dessert casserole. The ham just makes it weird.

  3. Why do you need so many different recipes when they all amount to “mix everything together and bake?”
