CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

This week's Heartland Cook, Eddie Joe Marks, served on the Mt. Vernon Fire Department from 1975 to 1998. Nowadays he's the coroner in Jefferson County, Illinois, but back in the day when he wasn't fighting fires he was firing up the crock pot in the kitchen. Eddie Joe calls it Slumgullion or "Slumgully" for short. He says he would throw it together it in the morning and by lunchtime there would be enough grub to feed the whole crew.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground beef (browned)
  • 4 cans Spaghetti or Spaghetti-O's w/cheese
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 2 cans mushroom pieces & stems (drained)
  • 1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 1 onion (chopped)

Directions:

Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Add meat, Spaghetti-O's, tomato sauce, mushrooms, diced peppers and onions to crock pot.

Cook on high 2 - 4 hours. Serve it with toasted garlic bread.

Eddie Joe's tip: This dish gets better the longer you cook it and let the flavors mingle. Even as a leftover this dish gets two thumbs up!
