Throwback Recipe: Cowgirl Casserole

There are some things that I have been making for so long that I don’t even think about. I first posted about Cowgirl Casserole back on my LiveJournal in 2005. I had been making it before then but I never talked about my food. It is generally in rotation but it had fallen out of favour for at least over a year. A few weeks back the husband brought it up. I had completely forgotten about it, so cheers to refinding a old recipe and making it new.

Not even sure what the original source was, but it is very modified now to our tastes or what I have on hand. I only put the cheese on his half, I’ve gotten so used to eating it without. I generally serve it with toast or garlic bread. Yum!
