Poor Man Husband Casserole

by 247tasty

This recipe is my savior during busy days. It’s very simple and quick to prepare. Cheesy, flavorful, and kid-friendly. My mother used to make this when I was little. I remember she was a very busy woman. She had 2 jobs but she made sure that even with her busy schedule, she would still have time to cook dinner for us. I appreciated her efforts that is why now that she’s old, I am the one responsible in the kitchen. Well, she still cooks for us and don’t get me wrong, I guess cooking develops as you grow old. Because for some reason, she became a total master in the kitchen!

Today, she is still asleep so I decided to make this dish to remind her of the good old days that we enjoyed together. Just a simple act of me saying “Thank you and I love you!”. Try this for your dinner tonight. It’s the best! Enjoy!
