This recipe was contributed by the American actor John Wayne in his last year, 1979, to a cookbook raising money for cancer. There has since emerged another casserole named John Wayne, but this is the original recipe, without beef in it.
This is a traditional dish in Québéc even though it is, of course, a take on Shepherd’s Pie.
A dead-easy casserole that even kids will love.
This is a great vegetable side dish, that dirties very few dishes!
If you’re up an hour before everyone else on the weekend, it will seem to them like you’ve fussed since the crack of dawn to make this, but it’s dead easy. It’s also a great brunch dish.
