Remember the days as a kid where you’d come home after a long day of school to a house that smelt like a delicious casserole?
If your mother was anything like ours, she’d probably have a casserole stewing in a slow cooker all day.
You’ve probably got your own recipe when it comes to casseroles, but here’s one that’s worth a try if you’re looking for a challenge in the kitchen.
