Seven Layer Casserole

Ah comfort food!

Seven Layer Casserole

Seven layer casserole has always been one of my husband’s favorite casseroles.  Thankfully, a celiac diagnosis doesn’t have to change that.  It is a gluten free meal with a couple of changes.  The farmer sausage I buy here in southern Manitoba is gluten free.  I use Campbell’s Gardennay Fire Roasted Sweet Pepper and Tomato soup (500 ml) in place of the 10 oz can of condensed soup and the 1 cup water originally asked for in this recipe.  Perfect comfort food.  I also have made this in the slow cooker.  Layer it as described, and cook on low for about 8 hours.

I know my original recipe was taken from a cookbook I owned many years ago.  This version is adapted from http://mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com/2011/03/seven-layer-casserole.html?pfstyle=wp
