Meal No. 1506: Pipetizer Casserole for Amy's Birthday Dinner

The core group of regular regulars does the Roediger House a great favor by offering the pleasure of their company and their presence. I love that many evenings each week there will be extra places filled at the dinner table.

For all that time these good folks spend bringing life and laughter to the house, I offer in return the chance to have a birthday meal with the option to specify the menu, and I try to make it happen.

This past Saturday night, it was time to celebrate the amazing Amy Williamson, but her dinner request was almost too easy to create and I feared it wouldn't be as special as she deserved. She asked for something cheesy and goopy, and that is a demand best filled by baking up the RoHo specialty of Pipetizer Casserole.

Then again, perhaps the dessert that evening made up for the plainness of the well-received casserole. (More about that in tomorrow's blog post.) Below, though, feast your eyes on the cheesy goopy goodness that marked the birthday occasion:

"Pipetizer Casserole" is an adaptation of "Tailgate Casserole," from The Big Book of Casseroles, by Maryana Vollstedt. San Francisco: Chronicle Books (2000), p. 120.
