I’m sure there’s a much more authentic way to make Mexican rice around now, but back in February 1972 Sunwhite rice published this recipe in the Woman’s Day. It mightn’t be a true taste of Mexico, but could still be a tasty dish.
This is a traditional South African dish and is basically a curried mince pie. The milk, bread cubes and egg give it a nice custard topping somewhat like moussaka.
These sausage shaped meatballs can be prepared a day ahead or even frozen, which is really handy. Making a casserole the day before you need it has the convenience factor, but as it can also improve the flavour, it can be a great idea.
I haven’t tried this, but as beef and beer works well in as a casserole can’t see why this combination wouldn’t taste good as well, especially with the sour cream added to the sauce.
My family have always loved this version of a meat loaf – the eggs make the difference. I also make smaller versions for when just my husband and I are going on a picnic or for lunch on the first day of an interstate trip.
As this says it’s not a traditional moussaka. Traditional Greek moussaka is made with eggplant and this recipe uses potato in it’s place. I think that using both eggplant and potato would work really well too, but making a traditional mince and tomato base sauce would probably be a lot better than a can of braised steak and onions.
Looking through Mum’s recipes there’s quite a lot that use tinned sweet corn, not something that’s used much these days. This savoury beef casserole topped with creamed corn is a bit unusual, but as it says the corn adds some sweetness to the standard savoury mince so it could be worth trying.
