DIRECTIONS

1.

Pat one thawed dough sheet in the bottom and up a half inch of sides of 2½" x 12" x 20" pan sprayed with pan release spray. For each 24 servings, use 1 pan.

2.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F and pre-bake dough sheets for 10 minutes.

3.

Spray a braising pan with food release spray. Then add the thawed beef crumbles and heat. Do not use frozen beef crumbles in recipes.

4.

Combine the Southwest Seasoning Blend, salt, and garlic powder.

5.

Add enough water to dry seasonings to mix them together well.

6.

Add the seasoning mixture to ground beef. Stir the mixture well to combine, then stir in the remaining water to the ground beef mixture.

7.

Simmer the mixture for 10 minutes. Keep it warm to combine with other ingredients.

CCP:  Heat to 155 degrees F or higher for 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process.

On top of the dough sheet, evenly distribute ingredients as follows:

  • 5½ cups of ground beef mixture

  • ½ cup drained jalapenos
  • 5 cups of sour cream mixture

10.

To bake: Convection oven 325 degrees F for 30 to 45 minutes and until edges of dough are lightly brown.

Ten minutes before the end of cooking time, spread two cups of the grated cheese per pan. Then return the pans to oven and cook for the remaining 10 minutes.

CCP:  Heat to 165 degrees F or higher for 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process.

At end of the cooking time, serve the John Wayne Casserole immediately, or cover it and place in a warmer until ready for service. If aluminum foil is used as a cover, cut holes in aluminum foil.

13.

To portion, cut each pan 4 x 6, for 24 servings. Serve one piece per portion. Each portion provides 2¼ oz. eq. of meat/meat alternate, ¾ oz. eq. whole grain, and 1/8 cup of other vegetable.

CCP: Hold and maintain the product at a minimum of 135 degrees F or higher. Check temperature every 30 minutes. Leftovers should be covered, labeled and dated. Quick chill within 2 hours to 70 degrees F or lower and from 70 to 41 degrees F within an additional 2 hours.
