Layered Beef Casserole

This is one way to use some of your home canned goodies. I pride myself in filling my shelves each year. I'm sad to see the jars disappear sometimes but when you can make a quick meal like this, its so worth it. Making dinner quickly after a busy day is what it's all about. (I forgot to take a picture, will post one the next time I make it)

6 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 pint whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cups fresh carrots, sliced
1 quart home canned beef roast chunks, drained
1 can (16 oz) tomato sauce
Salt and Pepper
1 cup (4 oz) shredded process cheese (Velveeta)

In a greased 13 in x 9 in baking dish, layer the potatoes, corn, green pepper, onion and carrots. Top with beef. Pour  tomato sauce over top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cover and bake 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven till the cheese has melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Layered beef casserole can be divided between two 1 1/2 quart baking dishes. Bake one casserole to enjoy now and freeze the other for another meal. Casserole can be frozen for up to 3 months. To use frozen casserole. Thaw in refrigerator over night. Bake as directed. Sprinkle with cheese before serving. Yield 8 servingsPin It
