"Shipwreck Casserole is a vintage ground beef recipe that comes together easily with layers of hamburger, potato, kidney beans, onions and tomato soup. Zesty seasoning, bacon, cheese, and a buttery Corn Flake topping finish off the flavorful dish. It's a simple make-ahead dinner that's hearty, flavorful, and totally kid-friendly! The idea for this recipe comes from a blog reader named Diane, who has fond memories of her grandmother preparing a similar dish each fall. Diane couldn't remember the specific measurements, but sent me a list of the ingredients to layer in a dish: sliced potatoes, onions, bacon, kidney beans and tomato soup. She called it "Autumn Dish" because her Gram prepared it for the Dime-a-Dish church suppers each fall. Since I love a good vintage casserole, I was intrigued! After a little bit more poking around, I ultimately discovered that this old-fashioned dish is commonly known as "Shipwreck Casserole" -- and Diane isn't the only one who grew up loving it! "
