Bargain Meal of the Week: Grandma Flo's Shipwreck

It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the Internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every week for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.

A good old meat and potatoes dish for a family dinner (with a really cool name). The smell of this simple recipe cooking will make your mouth water!

Items on sale that can be used in this meal:

Russet Potatoes 5 lb bag, $2.49
Sweet Vidalia Onions, 99¢ lb.

Ground Sirloin, $3.69 lb.

Grandma Flo's Shipwreck



4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish.

Arrange potatoes in the bottom of the casserole dish. Crumble ground beef over potatoes, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and ground black pepper. Spread onions over meat, and then beans. Pour undiluted soup over everything. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover, and continue baking for 1 hour.
