Pretty much the only work involved in making this one-dish meal is chopping onion and pepper, and opening some cans. It does require a total of one and a half hours of baking time, so it's probably not a good option for dinner after a long workday.
This recipe is from the 1950s.
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Then layer these ingredients in a 2-qt. baking dish with a tight-fitting lid:
- 1 cup rice, uncooked
- 1 cup canned whole kernel corn, drained
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour 1 8-oz. can Hunt's Tomato Sauce and 1/2 can water over first two layers.
- 1/2 cup each finely chopped onion and green pepper
- 3/4 lb. uncooked ground beef, seasoned with salt and pepper
- Pour second can of Hunt's Tomato Sauce and 1/4 can of water over everything
- Cover with four strips of bacon that have been cut in half
Cover the dish and bake at 350˚F for 1 hour. Uncover and bake about 30 more minutes. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
