John Wayne is one tasty dish.
No, not John Wayne the cowboy. Although he does have that whole wild, rugged look going on. (Wait! On second thought…)
In the latest edition of Mississippi Magazine there is an article titled “Dish It Out”, about the John Wayne Casserole a local hospital serves in their cafeteria.
As it so happens, I got my mitts on a serving of the very same casserole today.
It was a generous 5″x4″x3″ block of layered biscuit mix, ground beef, creamy filling, jalapenos and cheddar cheese. For hospital food, it wasn’t half bad in regards to taste. In fact, it was quite filling, but I could have done without the mayonnaise.
The article isn’t online at the magazine website, but using my refined computer hacking skills (kidding), I dug up the text and John Wayne Casserole recipe on The Free Library website. It looks pretty easy and the ingredients might already be in your kitchen. Be sure to cut the quantities in half, unless you are cooking for a football team.
