7 layer casserole--man's meal


This is definetly a cold weather recipe because of the length of time to cook. We really liked it. It comes from http://joyfullycooking.blogspot.com/ You can find it here: http://joyfullycooking.blogspot.com/2007/09/seven-layer-casserole-mans-meal.html If you use turkey bacon and lean hamburger meat then use more sauce (or maybe mix some extra sauce in the meat otherwise it will be dry).

1 and 1/2 cups uncooked rice
1 can corn drained
salt/pepper
2 cans 8 ounce tomato sauce (use more)
3/4 cups water
1/2 cup chopped onion (use more)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (use more)
1 and 1/2 pound ground beef
package of bacon

1. 9 by 13 inch pan--put in 1 and 1/2 cups uncooked rice
2. Add 1 can drained corn--spread on top of rice
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper
4. Pour 1 (8 oz) can tom. sauce over corn with back of spoon
5. Evenly distribute 1/2 cup water on top of sauce
6. Add 1/2 cup onion (use more)
7. Add 1 and 1/2 lbs ground beef on top--about a half inch thick
8. salt and pepper
9. Pour 8 oz sauce over
10. 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper over (use more)
11. 1/4 cup water over
12. cover with bacon (use plenty)

Cover pan with foil. oven 350--bake 1 hour. Remove foil and bake 30 more minutes. If fatty (which it isn't if you use lean hamburger and turkey bacon) dump greese. Cool 10-15 min. Then serve with ketchup if desired.
