Bam’s Tuesday Casserole Updated

Back in April I posted my recipe for Bam’s Tuesday Casserole (which isn’t really a casserole). I’d been making it the same way since my sons were very little. I really like it, don’t get me wrong. But I thought it was time to make a couple of changes. Get ready for Bam’s Tuesday Casserole Updated.

I know. I really should stop calling this a casserole but I’ve been calling it Tuesday Casserole for going on thirty years. I may be too old to change. Whether you call it a casserole or a skillet dish doesn’t matter. It’s a great way to use inexpensive ingredients to make a meal!

The changes I made were minor. I used Worcestershire Sauce in the recipe and cut back on the tomato juice. I also added a little salt to the liquid.

I chopped my vegetables just like the original recipe. Then I mixed 1 1/2 cups of tomato juice, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

I browned the ground beef, seasoning it with salt and pepper. When it was cooked through I drained it and set it aside.

I sautéed the carrots and celery until they were slightly softened. Then I added the onions and cooked them until they were translucent. The garlic was added last and I cooked that only until the garlic was fragrant.

I put the ground beef back in the skillet and added the liquid. I let it simmer for a few minutes then added a cup of peas and let them heat through.

I made mashed potatoes and put a big scoop into each bowl then topped it with the burger mix. It is definitely a more grown up version of Bam’s Tuesday Casserole but kids will still love it!

      Every time I make it I swear I’m going to put it on noodles or something different but mashed potatoes just seem perfect for it.
