Serves 6 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 15

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion

1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
1 bay leaf
1 pound can whole or diced tomatoes
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 ounces of cheese sliced into strips that are 1 inch wide
sliced stuffed olives


In a large skillet, brown the meat and onion.


When meat is browned, drain excess grease.


Add all ingredients to the pan except for the cheese and olives.


Simmer for 5 to 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaf.


Spoon into baking dish (I use a 9" square pan).


Arrange a lattice of cheese strips on top. Place an olive slice where the cheese strips cross.


Put in oven or under the broiler until the cheese melts.


Note: I sometimes make this a few hours ahead of dinner time. I then bake the casserole for about 20 minutes before serving.

Notes

My sister, Jeanne Gibbs, found this recipe in a Minute Rice ad in a Sunday newspaper magazine in the early 1960's. Our families have enjoyed this hot dish often over the years.
