      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.

      Shipwreck Dinner

      1/2 lb ground meat
      1/2 cup onions-diced
      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.
