Cook’s Country’s Glop Recipe

Best Lost Suppers

Today’s recipe comes from the Cook’s Country cookbook Best Lost Supper. I love the Lost Recipes cookbooks that Cook’s Country put out a few years ago, so I knew I needed to share a recipe from them for my Cooking Through My Collection Series.

With a recipe title like Cook’s Country Glop though, some of you may be wondering what glop is exactly. I know that it does not  sound very appetizing, but it is actually an interesting name for a delicious casserole type meal. And I really think the recipe needs to be renamed.

When I was writing this post I looked for a link to the cookbook and realized that it is now only available used. Which is too bad because this is a really good cookbook. The book is full of recipes that were popular years ago. Some have been slightly updated, but overall these are recipes from the past that have often been forgotten about.

I have several of the Lost Recipes books and I love them, so I am sad that these cookbooks are not available new. If you can find one used I would buy it. I think they are cookbooks you will not only enjoy looking through, but cooking from.

When I was writing this post today, my son looked over my shoulder and said, “Mom those pictures did not turn out well.” And I have to admit that he is right. These are not the best pictures. I made this for dinner the other night and because it is fall and it gets dark so early, the lighting was terrible. Poor lighting makes food photos challenging. But I really wanted to share this recipe with you today, so I hope you understand the poor photos.

This recipe caught my attention because it reminded me of a meal I had years ago. Growing up there was a lady in our church that made this cheesy tomato hamburger pasta dish. She would bring it to church meals and she served it almost every time she invited people over for dinner. It was kind of her signature meal, or at least in my mind it was her signature meal. I am sure she made many other things, but for some reason this meal stood out to me.

So when I saw this recipe, and it sounded a lot like the meal I remembered, I knew I had to make it. And I am glad I did. It really did taste a lot like the meal I remember. It is a great hearty casserole type meal.

And please do not let a title like glop and a poor photo keep you from making this. It really was good.

I did change the directions slightly to simplify them, but overall it is the same basic recipe from the book.

Does anyone else have this Lost Suppers cookbook or any of the other cookbooks in this series? What are your thoughts on them?

  1. Did you drain off the fat after browning the ground beef/onion/pepper mixture?

  2. I would call this goulash. :)

  3. I see diced tomatoes in the directions, but not in the list of ingredients, wanted to know the amount of diced tomatoes recommended, Thanks.

  4. Needs olives to make it good (& to be similar to Judy’s)

  5. I was just thinking the other day about the casseroles and one skillet meals my Mom used to cook back in the 50’s and 60’s. Wishing I had really paid more attention. So seeing this is just so ironic! Oh the good old days are gone forever and I feel so fortunate that I grew up then and not now. Mom used to call the dishes Slumgow or Goulash. Miss you Mom.
