Posted on December 2nd, 2010 | Posted in Casserole, Main Course, Recipes

It was my father’s birthday yesterday and one of his favorite comfort foods is Hungry Jack Casserole! So for his birthday dinner I prepared him this treasured dish. This dish is definitely a dish of nostalgia, that conveys many memories. I believe that is why my dad enjoys it so much! We can think back on times when my mom would make it for family dinners or when our friend, neighbor and sharer of the recipe would make this dish for my parents before there were kids…imagine that! All in all it is delicious and is a fun dish to enjoy on a cold, dark, fall night. Possibly this dish can be in your repertoire of dishes that will initiate many fond traditions and memories to come for your family and friends.
