Mallo Cups and Non-Pareils with Ambrosia¬† This recipe is two-fold. Mallo Cups and Non-Pareils are my hubby’s favorite candy. Whenever he sees a package of mallo cups, he buys a package, or two. Same thing goes with non-pareils, only they are much harder to find.

Leave that turkey in the refrigerator for a day and make Layered Hamburger Bake. It’s easy, cheesy and made with ground beef. It even has chopped spinach thrown in for good measure.

Casseroles

I am a huge fan of casseroles. I grew up eating casseroles and made them often when I was a young bride. Casseroles are a great way to stretch your food budget too. Sometimes there is nothing better than a cheesy, creamy, noodle pack casserole to chase the blues away. Comfort food at it’s best. My hubby on the other hand didn’t grow up eating casseroles. Lucky for me! When I tell him supper is ready and I made a casserole, he literally runs to the table!

Since 1983

In 1983, I found this recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens, Treasury of Country Crafts and Foods book. I have been making it ever since! There are a few recipes for Layered Hamburger Bake floating around recipe sites, but I still make the same recipe I found so many years ago. I make the recipe as written in the book with one exception. The recipe calls for one 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened. Over the years, I have reduced this amount to a 6 or 4-ounce package cream cheese.
