Another Vintage Casserole and this one is FABULOUS!

I first started making this as a newlywed and it has always been one of our favorites. You can use leftover beef from a pot roast or just buy a good steak. It’s a nice change up and a great way to use summer veggies.

Cut steak or high-quality beef into bite-size pieces. Saute in olive oil.  **OR use leftover steak or roast

Use a good Artisan bread and cut into cubes.

Mix with melted butter and cheese.

Keep some aside for the topping and place the rest in a greased casserole dish.

Spoon peas over bread mixture.

Saute onion in melted butter, add in flour and spices and cook ’til bubbling.

Add in milk and stir until bubbling and thickened. Continue cooking for another minute.

Add in the meat and spread over the peas.

Slice tomatoes and arrange over the casserole. Top with remaining bread cubes.

Bake for 35 minutes and EAT UP!!! SO YUMMY!
