Seven Layer Casserole
Cheesy bacon goodness on top of so many different flavors that go great together! I love making and eating casseroles. I like being able to clean up all the dishes so that when it comes time to eat…there aren’t many left to do! I also like eating casseroles as leftovers. Why is it they taste even better the next day? This is so easy and fun to put together and absolutely delicious!
In a large pan cook the hamburger, chopped onion and chopped celery.
Layer 1: In a 3 quart oven safe dish, put rice on the bottom mixed well with the corn. Add half the salt & pepper.
Layer 2: Heat beef broth to boiling (I just microwaved it) and carefully pour over rice and corn.
Layer 3: Mix tomato sauce with Worcestershire sauce and Italian seasoning. Pour half of the tomato sauce mixture on top evenly.
Layer 4: Spoon all of the hamburger mixture on top with half the salt and pepper.
Layer 5: Add remaining tomato sauce mixture.
Bake with a lid in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes.
Layer 6: Remove from the oven, remove the lid and add the cheese evenly.
Layer 7: Add the cooked bacon pieces. Place back in the oven without a lid for 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
