Everyday Mom's Meals: Classic Never Goes Out Of Style

Classic Never Goes Out Of Style

There are many classic dishes we've eaten for years in our family, and to us, no matter how retro they might be, they never get old. My mom's goulash, Grammy's chicken on rice, and slow cooker pot roast to name a few. 

These comfort foods are like a big hug at the end of a long day, and this casserole is one of our favorites we've been eating for years. It was one of the recipes I made as a newlywed, and once our boys came along, it shows up on my meal plan monthly.

It has the classic ingredients, plus a couple you might be surprised at. I have always made mine with peas, for a splash of green. Plus, I have added a panko topping for a little crunch. It's so good...I'm drooling just thinking about it.

Oh, and even better? It can go from stove to oven to table in about an hour! A simple supper for those nights you just can't handle complicated. Add a little side salad, or fresh fruit and dinner is done.

Lent begins this week, and I know many of you will be looking for seafood dishes for those meat-free Fridays. This should definitely be on your must make list!

Classic recipes are loved for a reason. No matter what food trends come and go, they stand the test of time and are loved by generations now and those to come!
