Pinch-A-Penny Casserole

Updated: Aug 11

Lord Honey, ever'one needs to pinch a penny ever' now and then. My dear Aunt Jean used to make a yummy casserole that she said helped her "pinch her pennies" and boy was it "slap the table good!" Well, I've made my own version of that I call "Pinch-A-Penny Casserole" to honor Aunt Jean and help y'all stretch your food budget just a bit.
