This is another old recipe from one of the now defunct craft/recipe magazines my mother received in the mail when I was a child. I can still remember how anxiously she awaited the little magazine each month and how she and my grandmother would go over the crocheting patterns inside. Then the recipes came after checking out those patterns. I never mastered crocheting, but I sure did master a love for the wonderful dishes she made from the recipes!

1 cup rice, uncooked
1 cup corn, whole kernel
2 small cans tomato sauce
3/4 cup water (or liquid from the canned corn)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper*
1 lb ground beef
salt and pepper to your liking
4 strips bacon

Place the rice then the corn in layers in a greased 2-quart casserole dish. Pour one can of the tomato sauce over the corn with 1/2 cup of the water. Layer the onion then the green pepper, uncooked beef and seasonings. Add the second can of tomato sauce with the remaining 1/4 cup of water. Cut the bacon strips in half and lay over the top. Cover the casserole dish and place in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Uncover and bake 30 minutes more.

*This is a bell pepper.
