St. Paddy's Day hangover dish

St. Paddy's Day will be over after today and what will you be left with besides a mammoth headache? If you're like me, there will be lots of cold corned beef, boiled potatoes, cabbages or leeks crowding the refrigerator shelves.

Time to make a casserole. Just assemble your already cooked ingredients, add a little bacon, horseradish, sour cream and some grated Irish cheese, and you have a warming, satisfying dish in about 40 minutes.

This is one of those "kitchen sink" casseroles; you can add whatever you have in whatever amount, such as cooked carrots, parsnips, turnips or onions.

Hangover corned beef casserole

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

6 strips bacon, diced
4 leeks, split, thinly sliced
6 cooked potatoes, peeled, sliced
1/2 pound cooked corned beef, sliced
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup prepared horseradish
1 cup grated Irish cheddar

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat to render the fat, about 5 minutes. Add the leeks; cook, stirring, until softened and lightly colored, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

2. Place one layer of sliced potatoes in a buttered casserole. Spread half of the leeks, bacon, sour cream, horseradish and cheese on the potatoes. Top with sliced corned beef, the remaining leeks, sour cream and horseradish. Top with a final layer of potatoes; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

3. Bake until hot and the cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Cut into squares.
