This was a leftover dish that Mom liked to make. She had to plan ahead in order to have the right leftovers from three preceding meals:
- Monday: Pork 'n' beans--leftovers became the middle layer of the hodgepodge.
- Tuesday: barbecue quickie--bottom layer.
- Wednesday: Mashed potatoes--top layer.
- Thursday: Hodgepodge: put butter on top of the potatoes and bake in oven
