    Default shipwreck dinner

    This is a box of macaronni and cheese, one can of diced tomatoes and a can of peas. Make the macaronni like on the box, add one can drained tomatoes and one can drained peas. Total cost $2. My kids love it

    The Shipwreck recipe I use usually has seven layers of goodies. I'd have to look up the exact recipe but I do know rice, ground beef and tomatoes are added in layers to make up a thrifty casserole.

    Here's a good and frugal recipe for 'Shipwreck Dinner' and Calico Beans. They recipes are similar.

    2 cloves garlic-minced/grated
    2 (15-16 oz) cans diced/stewed tomatoes
    1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
    4 medium potatoes-thinly sliced
    1/2 cup rice
    1 (15 oz) can kidney beans-rinsed well
    1 tbsp chili powder
    s and p-to taste
    choice of seasoning or spices-to taste

    1. Preheat oven to 350.
    2. Brown ground meat, onion, and garlic in a skillet.
    3. Drain fat.
    4. Stir in meat mixture and all other ingredients in a prepared baking dish.
    5. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or until potatoes are done.
    Serves 4-5

    Calico Beans

    1/2 lb ground meat
    1 large onion-diced
    2 garlic cloves-minced/grated
    1 (15 oz) can pork and beans
    1 (15 oz) can kidney beans-drained well
    1 (15 oz) can lima beans-drained well
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup ketchup
    2 tbsp vinegar
    1/2 tsp pepper
    other spices or seasonings-to taste
    1 tsp mustard-*optional

    1. Brown ground meat, onion, and garlic in a large skillet. Drain fat.
    2. Add the other ingredients and mix.
    3. Cook on med-low for 1 hour or can bake in oven in a prepared baking dish for 1 hour at 350.
    Serves 6

    The price of the dish can be lowered if using prepared dry beans instead of commercially canned.
